Removing Soft Drinks Stains from Carpets

Posted on November 18, 2020 at 1:30 PM

When a soft drink hits the carpet floor, be sure to move as quickly as possible to treat it. Leverette states to “Begin by using white paper towels to blot up as much of the stain as possible. Use an old shoe or spatula to press the towels into the stain. Keep moving to a clean towel until no more color is transferred.” The second half of the cleaning deals with mixing a tablespoon of hand dishwashing detergent and white vinegar. Leverette explains, “Mix one tablespoon of liquid hand dishwashing detergent, one-half cup distilled white vinegar and two cups of warm water. Use a clean white cloth to blot this solution into the stain. Work from the outside edges toward the center to prevent spreading the stain.” Call Triple D’s Carpet Cleaning at 910-273-3661.

How to Deep Clean a Used Couch

Posted on November 11, 2020 at 1:15 PM

Always sanitize any used upholstered furniture before you bring it into your home. Lauren Thomann from The Spruce states the following required supplies: “Baking soda, Vinegar, Castille soap, Bristle brush, Vacuum, Water warm and Bug spray (optional).” The first step is to vacuum up all the loose dirt. Thomann states to “wipe down any non-upholstery sections with a reliable disinfectant.” This part is optional, but you can spray the couch down with bug spray. Bed bugs, fleas, ticks and mites are painfully expensive to get rid of. Remove the odors with baking soda. If the couch still smells, use a white vinegar and castille soap solution.

How does Carpet Stain Protection Treatment Work? (In Detail)

Posted on November 6, 2020 at 1:05 PM

The protection treatment process works by applying a liquid repellent to the carpet that coats the fibers. Colonial Carpet Care explains:

• Coating the outside of the fibers and making it hard for particles to stick to them.

• Blocking the minute cracks or pores in the fibers with stain blockers. This prevents absorption of liquids and soils into the fiber itself.

What not to use when Cleaning Pet Stains

Posted on November 3, 2020 at 2:50 PM

Joseph Lewitin from The Spruce states, “When cleaning pet stains on carpet, never use harsh chemical cleaners that have a strong, caustic smell. They rarely remove the odor from the carpet fibers and might actually cause pets to want to mark the spot again. Instead, there are several homemade cleaning products that can tackle pet stains.” Please call Triple D’s Carpet Cleaning at 910-273-3661.

The Two Types of Carpet Stain Protection Treatments

Posted on October 30, 2020 at 1:30 PM

Colonial Carpet Care explains that there are two types of treatments:

• Mill applied – The protection is “Baked” into the fibers during the manufacturing process. Generally solvent based and harder wearing.

• Post cleaning – Applied to carpets or upholstery after cleaning or when brand new. Generally water based and applied with a hand sprayer. Tends to wear off faster than the mill applied product.

Both of these methods of application protect the fibers from water and oil based stains and soils. Call Triple D’s Carpet Cleaning at 910-273-3661 today to schedule an appointment.
