2. Slowly vacuum the affected areas to remove the dirt.
3. Apply the detergent solution. Mix one-teaspoon mild dishwashing detergent to one cup lukewarm water. Double as needed.
4. Use a white to blot the solution onto the carpet. The white cloth will allow you to see the stain lifting.
5. Continue blotting, switch out the towel as necessary.

This step takes place after you have taken care of the rug. Sanitize the room and the areas that the rug did not come into direct contact with. This will ensure the maximum amount of moisture has been collected. Don’t forget to scrub the walls and baseboards to prevent mildew. In addition to sanitizing the rug, steam cleaning it will make it truly clean. Plush Rugs, “this will help to remove dust, dirt, and allergens from the rug that may otherwise cause unpleasant odors over time and reduce the risk of mold growth.” Call Triple D’s Carpet Cleaning to get your carpets cleaned.

Slightly different care needs to be taken when drying a small rug and a large one. If the rug is small enough to fit into your drier (and its okay to dry it), then throw it in there (alone just to be safe). Use fans and a dehumidifier for large rugs and be sure to prop it up for improved airflow. If the rug is extremely large, then work in sections when drying and follow the steps previously mentioned. You could also hang your rug outside but make sure you remove as much moisture as possible using one of the methods listed above. Call Triple D’s Carpet Cleaning today at 910-273-3661.

Occasionally moving heavy furniture will help expose hard to get areas of the carpet. It will also help avoid excessive pile crushing. Shaw Floors suggests, “Also consider using carpet protectors under the legs of tables, chairs, and other furniture to help distribute the weight.” This suggestion will help avoid damaging the floors. Shaw Floors states, “Damage can occur if you use chairs or appliances with rollers or casters without a chair pad designed specifically for carpet.” Call Triple D’s Carpet Cleaning at 910-273-3661.
