Top 5 mistakes of carpet stain removal
1) Off the shelf spot removal will is safe on all carpets
Stain/spot removers available off the shelf may damage your household carpet/rug if not used properly. It is common to find chemical burns on carpets after a DIY stain/spot removal session. We advise users to test the stain/spot remover on a less noticeable area of the carpet before using it on the stain/spot
2) Use salt to absorb liquids/spills on carpet
Salt is a bad idea for absorbing unwanted liquids from carpets. Salt is very difficult to remove from the fibers of carpet. The ideal way to absorb unwanted liquids from carpets is white cloth, mild detergent and warm water. Just blot the spill and continue till it is gone.
3) Rubbing the spot/stain
DO NOT RUB any stain/spot on the carpet as it will further deepen the stain/spot making it harder to remove. Gently blot as per point 2 above.
4) Wool carpet will shrink when cleaned
It is not true that wool carpet cannot be cleaned as it will lead to shrinking. At Art of Cleaning (www.artofcleaning.com.sg), we are equipped with the proper machine and chemical to wash and remove stains from your wool carpet. Shrinkage will only happen if an incorrect cleaning method is used on your wool carpet.
5) Household stain removal products is as good as commercial products
Household stain removal products are completely different from the stain removal products that Art of Cleaning uses. We use professional stain removal chemicals which are highly efficient, protect the carpet fibers, enhance the carpet color and deep cleanse the carpet. By using household products, you risk damaging your precious/expensive carpet and upholstery.
