Ever wondered how your own carpets can be cleaned without ever breaking the bank? It usually starts with overcoming your fear of a scrub and that bottle of liquid cleaning spray. DIY remedies to cleaning certain items found at home apply to carpet cleaning too. You can do a better job than you think you can. And the only way to confirm it is by actually doing it. Just follow these steps given by us, the local carpet cleaning in Chula Vista, CA.
Dissolve half a packet of laundry detergent powder in a basin of water.
Ideal estimate amount of water would be about 50L. Add detergent as needed. The basin of soapy water will serve as the place to dip in the carpets that needed cleaning. Adding bleach on this solution is not exactly recommended if you’re worried about your carpet fading out.
Soak the carpets in half an hour.
Rugs and other pieces of clothing usually get soaked for half an hour for hand washing. So in case you need to soak the carpets longer than half an hour as you please, it would be fine. Just don’t soak beyond an hour or overnight as that might fade the colors of the carpet even if the detergent is not that strong. It helps in settling the soapy water in the carpet being soaked.
Scrub the front of the carpet gently.
Most carpets are thick enough that hand washing often comes with a scrub and a plank of wood thick enough to put above the basin where the carpet will be scrubbed. Scrubbing away atop the carpet will squeeze out the soapy water and the grime. So don’t be fooled by the darkened water. Some filth and dirt are still in that carpet you just soaked. Scrubbing it thrice before soaking again to get some soapy water again will help in cleaning further. Repeat at least 3 times per carpet in case more than 1 carpet fit in the soapy water.
Rinse using running water.
Using the same basin helps though as long as the open faucet has the basin under the running water. Rinsing each carpet means soaking and squeezing under running water. Do it at least twice per carpet before hanging the carpet dry at a place not directly hit by sunlight to avoid any colors from fading from the carpet.
Keeping your carpets clean on your own sometimes comes as a challenge until you get to accomplish said task yourself. These steps work best when grime and filth stuck in those rugs and carpets haven’t gone deep and hard enough. In case some major clean-up is needed, consult your favorite carpet cleaners in Chula Vista for a carpet cleaning appointment.
