One of the worse things you can have in your home are dirty carpets. If this problem is plaguing you, finding help is probably of the utmost importance. Luckily, you stumbled across this article; here, you will be given some helpful area rug cleaning tips.
If you want to use a sanitizing solution to make your carpet cleaner, it is a good idea to do a test before applying it all over your carpet. No matter how good a solution may seem, you never know if it could cause further discoloration. To prevent this problem, apply the solution to a small spot of your carpet. Leave it there for a few hours and then observe. If you notice severe discoloration, you should avoid using the product and look for another. If not, it should be okay to apply all over your carpet.
When trying to get a stain out of your carpet, rather than rubbing, try blotting. Rubbing the area to roughly could cause the stain to spread even further, causing more problems. Blotting it allows you to remove the stain without spreading it further. Also, to prevent spreading, begin blotting on the edges of the stain and them work your way to the middle.
Know that simply vacuuming your carpets is not enough to really keep them clean. Sure, it may remove dirt on the top of the carpet, but it is not effective in getting deep into the carpet to remove debris and hairs. In order to get these items out, go over each area of the carpet at least three to four times and if possible move the vacuum over it from different angles.
Are indentations from furniture a problem with your carpet. If so, know that this problem can easy be solved. Every couple of months, remove each item of furniture. Then, use a fine-toothed comb to fluff up the areas of indentation. Just be sure not to wait too long; the weight of furniture can leave permanent indentations when left in the same spot for too long.
If you are looking for a quick solution for getting rid of stains, you are in luck. An effective way to remove stains is by placing a couple of drops of hand/dishwashing soap in warm water. Apply it to the stained area and leave it there for about an hour. Then, all you need to do is use a dry, clean towel to blot it dry.
If you have a problem with your carpet that you are not comfortable with taking care of on your own, do not hesitate in calling a professional. After all, that is what they are there for. Some problems are either too complex or too confusing for an average person to deal with. The only solution may be to enlist the help of a pro!

Questions and Answers
How to add essential oil to homemade cleaning products?I purchased a pricy “natural” cleaning product at a farmers market that was made primarily from baking soda and smelled wonderful. I’d like to try to make my own, but am not sure how to infuse the baking soda with fragrance using essential oils, as they did with the product I purchased. I’m also not sure how much oil I should use.
[display_name id=”1″]I think this link has what you’re looking for:
Under carpet cleaner, it reads “To make a carpet freshener, add 16-20 drops of essential oils to a cup of baking soda. Mix well and place in a covered container overnight so that the oil can be absorbed. Sprinkle over your carpet the next day and then vacuum the powder up. ”
I hope this helps:)

Cleaning With Vinegar
White vinegar is an acid. It’s unique properties make it an effective grease cutter, and it will stop mold and mildew in it’s tracks. Vinegar is non-toxic and does not leave any residue or smell). We go through gallons of it each week washing hardwood, vinyl or linoleum floors. Be careful to use only plain white vinegar, and not any flavored or apple cider variety.
