When it comes to getting the normal dirt that comes in on shoes off your carpet most people know that vacuuming on a regular basis will do the trick. If you want to clean a stain off your carpet whether it is from spilled juice or food that was dropped you can use some cleaning tips. There are methods to get just about any stain out of your carpet as long as you use them right. Many spills and stains require specialized treatments so that the stain does not get set in. If you are cleaning gum out of your carpet you want to use ice to freeze the gum. If you are dealing with mud it is best to allow it to dry all the way out before you deal with it at all. The different techniques are necessary and important to know. One area of caring for your carpet that you should be prepared for is spills and accidents that leave odors behind even after the stain has been cleaned. There are some things such as pet urine and even coffee and beer that will have an odor that will linger and needs to be treated along with the stain itself. Ameribest Carpet Cleaning outlines what you can do to clean odors out of your carpet.
You want to make sure that if you have a stain or spill that gets on your carpet and you are nervous that it will leave an odor behind you treat it right away. You of course have to make sure that you have a plan to clean the look of the stain first. You can then treat the odor that is likely hiding in the fibers, backing and padding of the carpet. Step one is to use a product that is able to remove moisture and reduce odor at the same time. This is where household baking soda comes into play. The baking soda needs to be used and it is best to not go light. The best thing you can do is to make a cover over the entire area that has been effected and allow the baking soda to sit for an hour up to overnight. This will allow it the time it needs to collect the moisture and counteract the smell or odor.
Once the baking soda has had time to sit you will notice that it has become hardened and will break up into larger pieces rather than a fine powder. When it does that you know that the process is working. You want to make sure that you pick up the larger pieces and dispose of them in a trash can. Then you can use the vacuum to remove the rest of the baking soda and be sure that the canister is cleaned out right away. This will prevent the odor from getting in the filters of your vacuum.
