6 Tips for Removing Stains in the Carpet

  • Sharebar

Getting an apartment for the first time is one of the biggest rites of passages we experience. Not only is there rent to pay, but there is a fridge to keep stocked, loads of laundry to do, and rooms to keep clean. That’s a lot of responsibility all at once. It’s common for both first-time renters, like many of those in Full Sail apartments, and people who have been renters for many years to be faced with repairing small damages around the house. Sometimes it’s just a small problem, but other times the renter is at a loss for setting tings right. One of the biggest expenses people face when they move out of an apartment is the charges from unfixed breaks and messes left behind.

The most commonly damaged item in an apartment? The carpet. That is one fixture in the house that take a lot of abuse: it can easily be torn, burned, stained, and soiled. And sometimes a carpet just gets worn down after a long period for time. Luckily when it comes to stains and messes on the carpet there are tons of products and at home tricks to try. For just about any stain, there’s something out there that can get it out.

  1. Purchase Common Cleaning Products

It seems like there is a new cleaning product made every day, each one boasting a new ability. There are cleaning products for the bathroom, the stove, counter tops, and fabrics. For light stains, a common cleaner can usually do the trick.

  1. Vinegar

Vinegar is a great, inexpensive cleaning product that can be found in just about every kitchen. It can be used to unclog drains and remove stains from carpets and counter tops. Either fill a spray bottle with vinegar or just dampen a cloth with the liquid and dab at the stain until it’s lifted.

  1. Try Beer

It might seem counter-intuitive to pour beer on a carpet, but there are many alternative uses of beer, including using it to loosen tough coffee stains that are otherwise impossible to get out. Just pour a little bit of beer onto the stain and dab the liquid and the stain away with a clean cloth.

  1. Salt

Pouring red wine on a carpet seems like a disaster. But if someone acts quickly, there’s no reason to worry. While the wine is still wet, pour salt on the spot and wait about 10 minutes before vacuuming it away. The same, mixed with a little rubbing alcohol, works with common grease stains.

  1. Grab the WD40

For ink stains and other similar spots, spray a little WD40 on the area and use a wet sponge to wipe away the stain after a minute or so.

  1. Remove Odors and More

Baking soda is a great item for lifting odors and brightening carpets. After getting out a tough stain, sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda on the carpet, leave it there for about 15 minutes, and them vacuum it away. The baking soda will absorb odors and take away bits of dirt with it.

But one recommendation is universal: clean your carpet before it becomes too unsightly. The cleaning chore will be easier and a lot more successful. All you need to do is put some little efforts to deal wit it.
