They also provide multiple functional purposes, such as improving the air quality in places by passively filtering dust and pollen and removing them from your breathing atmosphere, provides warmth and solace in colder climates, allows for greater safety for your family. Particularly for toddlers during falls and slips, as well as a noise reducer, absorbing high levels of sounds from television sets, radios, and music systems.

These are all significant factors on why having a carpet is a good idea, but having a rug presents lots of responsibility in cleaning and maintaining it to be able to enjoy your carpet fully. Fortunately, with the proper guidance, any person can easily clean their carpet and maintain it.

The most simple pro trick when it comes to cleaning your carpet is to dab/blot and not rub. Repeated small dabs of a washcloth, a sponge or a paper towel combined with some cleaning solution will do more good than trying to rub off a stain from your carpet. Simple dabs on the stained area will soak up the stain and eventually clean it up, as opposed to the usual rubbing of the stain, which only causes the stain to spread and lead to the premature degradation of your precious carpet flooring.

I’m positive that you’ve heard about this next one, the club soda technique on wine and beer stains that’s always shown in movies and television. If you’ve ever wondered if it works, well wonder no more, because it does. When done correctly, wine and beer stains don’t stand a chance against this old cleaning trick. Simply dab the stain with a cloth and some club soda until the stain is fully removed.

For a more efficient method, however, mix a solution of water and white vinegar, generously spray the stained area with the solution letting it sit for about 10 minutes, and simply dab the stain away with a clean and dry sponge. Once thoroughly cleaned, wash the area with some warm water, and brush the strands of the carpet towards their natural direction. To finish this process, press some paper towels against the stain, with a weight to fully absorb the dampness from the previous wash.


Aside from liquid stains, debris such as candies, chips, and crumbs also serve a significant threat to the lifespan of your carpet. Fortunately, all it takes is a thick brush or a butter knife. Lightly scrape and brush off any bits and chunks off of your carpet and try to get as much of it as possible. Using a sponge, dab the area with some water and a gentle soap and make sure to remove all the sugar and crumbs in the stained area. Any residue left can and will draw other dirt in the area without hesitation. Lastly, dry off the area with clean paper towels with light and gentle dabs.


Last but certainly not the least, try to do a deep clean of your carpet at least twice a year. This will ensure that your carpet will remain fresh and look new as if it was just installed. If you do not have the necessary equipment or the time, hire a Boise carpet cleaner to do the job for you.
