Among children, pets, and all things in between, your carpets endure a beating. If you are waiting for pay day to get your carpets cleaned professionally, there are some naturally based alternatives to freshen up in between to combat those lingering odours. Try to avoid some DIY quite fixes, because these actually can not only damage or stain your sofas, carpets, or curtains, but they could potentially harm the environment, as well as your health.
HOT WATER EXTRACTION CLEANING NOT ONLY REACHES DEEP INTO THE FIBRES BUT ALSO EXTRACTS OUT EVERYTHING PUT IN TO CLEAN, FROM PRE SPRAY APPLICATION TO SHAMPOO.
SO WHAT CAN I USE ON MY CARPET IN BETWEEN?
- Baking Soda Treatment Make a deodorizing carpet shampoo by combining baking soda with water. For light cleaning, adjust the solution consistency, such that it can be easily squirted from a plastic dispenser bottle. For spot treatments, make a thicker paste and pat it onto the region you wish to clean. Vacuum the area after it dries up completely. Alternatively, to freshen up the carpet without mixing water, you can simply sprinkle the baking soda on the carpet or indeed mattress, like a powder, leave for an hour then vacuum straight off.
- Soda Water One of the most effective ways to tackle stains of blood and chocolate is soda water treatment. Repeatedly dampen stains with a wet cloth drenched in club soda. This is particularly good with clothing.
Essential Oil Treatment The essential oils including tea tree, lavender, and lemon contain antifungal and antibacterial properties. Combine them with some water and spot test on an unnoticeable part of your carpet to make sure the oils won’t stain. This is particularly useful as a freshner or deodouriser if you have pets and they have urinated and there is nasty odour. Then of course, you can call in the professionals!!
