Get Out Of A Wet Spot Quickly:
It’s pretty likely that you’ve spilled something on your carpets before. Whether it was paint, motor oil, or even just water from cooking food, stains and spills are common in most homes. Luckily there is a very easy way to get them out – without replacing the entire flooring! If not cleaned up quickly (within hours), some spilling will fade over time but others can cause permanent damage which require professional help to remove and replace the stained area of the carpet. Many people don’t know how to prevent water damage carpet, but it’s not too difficult. All you need is a few supplies and some time!
First, get a bucket and fill it up with water. Next, use the sponge to soak up some of the water from your carpet in one spot. Repeat this on other spots until you have removed as much excess liquid as possible.
Now place paper towels under the areas that are still wet so that any new spills will be absorbed by these rather than go onto your carpets again. Keep doing this process over until there is no more spilling coming out!
Don’t forget to check for stains after all of the spill has been eliminated – especially if it’s an oil based stain like paint or motor oil which can take longer to clean then regular dirt or food coloring stains! Now move on to cleaning up any stains you may have missed, using a cleaner that is suitable for both oil based and regular stains.
This way you’ll prevent the need for replacing your carpets, and you’ll be able to have clean floors that don’t smell like whatever was spilled on them.
If this fails, consider hiring a professional carpet cleaning service!
