Apr 5, 2022 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Do you struggle to keep your carpets clean despite your best efforts?  It can be tricky to keep them looking fresh and new.  Stains, spills, and accidents happen, but you can still keep your carpets looking their best with a little help from the Fort Worth carpet cleaning experts at Cowgirl Chem-Dry.


There is no need to worry over the condition of your carpets,  Instead, use these tips and tricks from Cowgirl Chem-Dry.


#1 – Blot—don’t rub—carpet stains. 


Accidents happen.  If you spill, avoid the instinct to rub the stain.  Instead, blot it to stop it from seeping or spreading.


#2 – Try club soda for carpet stain removal.


Mix one part club soda with one part white vinegar to treat the stain.  Here at Chem-Dry, we use the power of carbonation to clean carpets.  Our revolutionary method uses just a fraction of the moisture compared to steam cleaners and is far more effective at removing stains.


#3 – Use a lint roller.


This is a good tip for removing things that a vacuum can miss, for example, hair and crumbs in problem areas.


#4 – Use hydrogen peroxide to treat tough stains. 


Hydrogen peroxide is highly effective for removing harsh stains such as blood.  Apply it to the stain directly, wait for it to foam and fizz, then wipe the excess away.


#5 – Use a squeegee to remove pet hair from carpet.


Squeegees are typically meant for glass windows, but what you might not know is that they also work well to remove pet hair from carpet and furniture.


#6 – Freeze gum using an ice cube.

If gum gets stuck in your carpet, try pressing ice cubes over it for a minute.  Once it is frozen solid you can use scissors or a knife to pick out the hardened pieces.


#7 – Cut grease on carpet with dish soap. 


Have a grease stain that seems impossible to remove?  Try using a mixture of a cup of warm water with a few drops of dish soap.  Repeat as needed.


#8 – Use area rugs and runners on high traffic areas.


Rugs don’t just have to be for hard flooring.  When you place rugs in high traffic areas you can protect your carpet from getting matted down and stained.


#9 – Remove pet urine and odors with professional treatment. 


If you have pets in the home, it could be a good idea to schedule a Chem-Dry pet urine odor removal treatment annually.  This will prevent odor crystals from accumulating and keep your home looking and smelling fresh.


#10 – Keep up with professional carpet cleaning.


Treating stains as they happen on your own is important, but it is crucial to keep up with professional carpet cleanings each year.  Chem-Dry removes stains, odors, and allergens from your floors, plus helps them repel future stains more effectively.
