All You Need To Know About Carpet Maintenance

When it comes to maintaining carpets, you may feel a little overwhelmed with the many types of carpets and rugs available in the market today. From plush furry carpets, to rubber and coir mats that range from cloth to synthetic fabrics that have different absorbing behavior and resulting cleaning methods. These easy to remember tips about carpet maintenance will fool proof extending the life of your floor mats.

Scrape before scrubbing
When food spills on a durable carpet in Singapore, always try to remove as much food and solid waste as much as possible before scrubbing the mat. This reduces the mess and stain to a great extent. Scrubbing before trying to scrape off as much residue with a butter knife or a rounded spoon will only spread the mess.

Paper Towels
Work fast, as the longer you keep the spillage on the carpet, especially on carpets that are plush like a super shaggy carpet, it will get harder to clean or remove stains, the longer the spillage is left on it. Use dry paper towels or a sponge to blot the stain and reduce the liquid from spreading. The key to doing this is to dab at the spillage instead of scrubbing it. When it comes to more greasy spillages that won’t absorb into a paper towel, consider scooping out the grease and using blotting paper instead of a paper towel.

Deodorants and detergents
Usually, liquid dish wash soap and baking soda or vinegar with lukewarm water helps to rinse off most spillages. Try to use as little liquid as possible when dabbing clean as the goal is to avoid spreading the stain on the fabric. Leave the solution for 24 hours and vacuum or dry with a hair dryer to speed up the process. Make sure the area is dried well as the area could stain with water and cause mold and fungus to grow underneath the carpet.
