How to remove spots from your carpet in Springville UT

Before we begin, let me give you a word of caution …,

as a rule of thumb, never scrub the spot with a stiff bristled brush. You will most likely end up doing more harm than good. Scrubbing your carpet can ruin the fiber in your carpet and cause the spot to look different from the rest of the carpet in surrounding area.

Below is a little advice about spot and stain removal from your carpet;

First, locate the spot or spots that will need attention

I know this sound a little elementary but trust me, it is essential. Some spots are hard to spot, forgive the pun. Especially if it was caused by pet urine. If you don’t identify where all of the potential spots are you could end up with some pretty unpleasant odors emanating from your carpet. If you are color blind or have a difficult time seeing the problem areas, don’t despair. Let me give you a little trick CSI uses to find the hard to see spots. Use a black light. Black lights or UV lights will illuminate pet urine like a neon sign. Once you find your spots use a piece of chalk to mark them.

Next, make up a spot removing cleaning solution

After you have located the spots, your next step should be to create a carpet cleaning solution. It is highly recommended that you use non- bleaching detergent such as dish washing soap. This is usually mild and will help to protect the die color in your carpet. To neutralize the pet urine odor, add some white vinegar to the solution, this will help to kill any unpleasant odors.

NOTE: Use a spray bottle

The best way to apply your carpet cleaning solution to the stained area is to use a fine misting spray bottle. These can easily be found at a dollar store and will help to make sure you are not soaking the carpet. Once you apply the solution, let it set for 5 to 10 minutes so it can do its work.

Finally, dry the spot thoroughly

Next you will want to dry the spot. Use a clean, dry, white towel. This way you don’t take a chance of imparting pigment from your towel into the freshly cleaned carpet. To draw the solution out of your carpet work from the outside in. Pres the towel down on the spot and use your foot to put pressure on the towel.

Do not rub or grind the towel down into the carpet. This will potentially damage your carpet. Just put equal pressure on the towel all around the spot. Once you have done this lift the towel and look for a clean dry area and do it again. Do this until the towel comes up clean and dry. The carpet should fell dry to the touch.
