How to Remove Common Spring Carpet Stains

As the weather continues to heat up, the time is perfect to head outdoors and enjoy the spring sunshine before it gets too hot. If you've been spending more time gardening in your backyard or playing in the park, you may have started to notice that the outdoors have started to make their way into your carpet. Don't worry, Lehigh Cleanpro in Lehigh Valley can help you get rid of these stains before they set.

How to Get Rid of Dirt and Mud in Your Carpets

Dirt is a common problem for most carpet owners. Even if you're extra careful walking on your carpet after being outdoors, dirt may still get inside through windows, doorways, and your pets paws. If you notice a clump of dirt or glob of mud on your carpet, take comfort in knowing you can get rid of the stain. If mud is what you're dealing with, allow it to dry before starting the removal process. Dry mud will be easier to remove without causing the stain to grow. Once it's dry, slowly vacuum the affected area going over the stain many times. Do the same if you're dealing with dirt and not mud. Vacuuming will allow you to remove as much dirt as possible before treating the stain. Next, grab a couple of clean washcloths and mix together a cleaning solution. For the cleaning solution, simply add one teaspoon of liquid dish soap to a cup of warm water. Soak a bit of one of your washcloths in the solution and start dabbing the stain. Avoid rubbing the stain as this can cause damage to your carpet fibers as well as make the stain grow. As you dab the solution into the stain you should see it transferring onto the washcloth. Continue using clean parts of the washcloth to treat the stain and avoid making your carpet dirtier. Once the stain is gone, use a dry washcloth to blot the area until you've removed as much moisture as possible. Don't forget to let the area dry before allowing foot traffic over it. Don't forget that your carpets should be professionally cleaned at least twice a year. If you're looking for the best carpet cleaning system in Lehigh Valleycontact Lehigh Cleanpro!

Remove Pesky Grass Stains

Grass stains can cause big issues for many, especially those who have small children who like to have fun rolling around in the grass. If you've dealt with grass stains in clothing, you know it's not always easy to remove them. However, it's not impossible by any means. If you notice a grass stain on your pristine white carpeting, don't stress, simply gather the right materials and get to work. First, remove any dry elements like blades of grass, dirt, and other debris. Next, grab your cleaning solution. In this case, mix together 1/4 teaspoon of detergent and one cup of cold water to create the perfect cleaning solution. Dab the mixture onto the stain by working your way to the center from the outside. Let the solution sit for a minute and then proceed to blot the area with a dry, clean washcloth. As you blot the area, the stain should lift and transfer onto the washcloth. To get the area as clean as possible, mix white vinegar with water and spray this solution on the affected area. You don't have to soak the area, simply moisten it. After letting the solution sit, blot the excess moisture and allow the spot to dry.

Avoid Taking the Outdoors Into Your Home

No matter who or what is dragging outdoor elements into your home and causing carpet stains, there are several ways to fight back. Whether it's dirt from the garden or water after some spring rains, using mats inside or outside of your home's doors can help. A mat will help whoever is entering your home shake off elements like dirt and dry off any moisture. Consider placing shoe racks next to entryways so that as you enter you can leave behind your outdoor shoes and change into clean indoor shoes. A mud room or tile entryway will also help create a space between the outdoors and your carpeting. Use this space to clean off before stepping onto the carpet. This will be particularly useful for those who have small children and pets that may not think to clean off before heading inside.
