Kids, pets, day-to-day routines - with everything we have going on it’s easy for spills to happen and for them not to get cleaned up. Before spills occur, make sure you know how to clean them up quickly, so those quick spills don’t turn into lasting stains.
To start, we’ll cover the most spilled on and stained flooring, carpet.
Learning how to get stains out of carpet requires two things. The first is knowing what kind of fibers make up your carpet and the second is having all the right cleaning agents to help remove the spot.
There are two types of carpet fibers: synthetic and natural. Synthetic fibers are machine made fibers - commonly made out of nylon or polyester. These fibers are much more stain resistant than natural fibers and less expensive. Natural fibers, on the other hand, are made from materials found naturally and constructed that way. Wool is the most common type of natural carpet fiber. These fibers easily absorb stains and are typically better at insulating sound and heat.
Your carpet cleaner solution will need to be based on what kind of fibers make up your carpet. If you’re unsure what kind of carpet you have in your home, here’s a carpet identification guide.
