Spots and Spills
- Food, grease & oil
- Mix ½ cup water with 1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch
- Mix until it is a milky thin consistency
- Apply to the spot and scrub in gently
- Allow to dry
- Brush loose
- Coffee, tea, soda, or anything which contains a dye
- Sponge the spill/spot immediately (absorb with terry cloth)
- Soak with club soda or a mixture of part white vinegar an part water
- Lightly scrub the spot, applying more moisture from either solution until gone
- Keeping the spill moist until the spot is gone. This will keep the dye in the spill from setting into the carpet fibers.
- Pet Stains
- Spray on a solution of part white vinegar and part water. The vinegar will attract the acid from the pet stain preventing browning or yellowing of the carpet fiber.
- Purchase and apply AIP. Call and ask us about it1-855-578-6344
Carpet & Upholstery Care Maintenance Tips:
- We recommend always raking your carpet before vacuuming. Dirt has a sandpaper effect on your carpet. Raking your carpet first, loosens the dirt, allowing your vacuum to work more efficiently. Call us to purchase a rake directly from us!1-855-578-6344
- To remove a dimple left by furniture on your carpet, place an ice cube in the dimple before bed. The dimple will be removed overnight.
- Once a month, brush the surface of your furniture to remove trapped dust, dirt, and silt. Use a natural fiber brush to insure delicacy.
These are excellent ways to help keep your home environment thriving and healthy! After all a healthy home results in a healthier YOU!
