How to Get Nasty Stains Out of Your Carpet

An accidentally spilled coffee, or a mud trace left behind from kids running in and out will leave a nasty stain on your carpet, and a dirty carpet most surely will make a bad impression to anyone who see it.
However, before going for professional help, such as carpet cleaning Clapham offers, try the steps below to clean your carpet by using common household items and save yourself money.
  1. Before using any harsh cleaning products on an old or new stubborn stain, try a simple solution of equal parts white vinegar and water.
  2. Once you have prepared the solution, dip a sponge into it and begin rubbing the stain gently until the solution soaks into the carpet. Do not over soak the carpet to avoid future mould problems.
  3. While rubbing you will see how the stain slowly vanish and cling to the sponge.
  4. If the diluted vinegar doesn't work, mix 5 teaspoons of Borax, ¼ cup of white vinegar and 5 teaspoons of salt into a bowl.
  5. Stir the ingredients until a pasty consistency is formed, then spread the paste over the stain on your carpet using your fingers and leave it for overnight.
  6. Use a dull butter knife to break down the dried paste at the morning, then vacuum the carpet.
The stains most surely will be gone and your carpet clean again. However, if you are looking for a thorough carpet cleaning, you'd better hire carpet cleaning Clapham team to ensure that the entire carpet is properly cleaned.
