If you want the carpet at home to be durable and not disturb your health, you must be diligent in cleaning it. If you think you need to buy a vacuum cleaner to clean carpets, it doesn’t have to be. Simply put, you can keep your carpet clean without carrying heavy cleaning equipment. Remember that there are efficient ways to keep your carpet clean without a machine.
Without a vacuum cleaner, you can still clean the carpet with a broom with stiff bristles and dustpan. This is a very easy cleaning method if you have a low pile carpet. If you are cleaning thicker, high-pile, or coarse rugs, be prepared with a little patience and detail attention, as stain is easier to stick to the fibers. To make the broomstick more effective, wrap a rubber band around the bristles to make it more tightly tied.
Refresh and disinfect your carpet fibers with a simple homemade solution and a scrub brush. In a small bowl or bucket, mix the white vinegar and water in a 1: 3 ratio. Dip the scrub brush bristles in the solution and scrub them into the carpet. Massage it into the fibers well (without saturating the carpet completely) and continue with the cloth to help remove excess moisture.
Eighty percent of stains can be removed with plain tap water. To remove stains, press a clean, dry, white cloth over the stain to absorb any spills. Repeat until the spill is absorbed. Then, gently rub the water over the stain with a damp towel and pat it dry until the stain is gone. Change cloth if necessary. Next, rinse. You can use soda if the stain is fresh to remove it, before it sets, but also consider using a carpet cleaner according to the product guidelines. Always continue to blot at the stain and the cleanser, rather than scrub.
A carpet that properly cleaned and maintained will last twice as long. Learn effective strategies for keeping your carpet looks new and fresh over the years. Try those easy tips for keeping your carpets and rugs looking clean without the vacuums or steam cleaners.
