Listed all the tips in a short video
one Clean hair regularly
If you have pets, then you know how difficult it is to clean their fur after them. To remove it from the carpet, use a glass scraper with a rubber seal. Pass it over the carpet: due to the static charge, the wool will stick to the scraper. Long hair can be combed out of the carpet with a regular clothes brush.
2 Use sticky roller
For light dirt or spilled debris, use a sticky roller — just slide the sticky part over the textile, the dirt will stick to it. Also, the roller is suitable for cleaning carpets with a very long pile: first remove dirt from textiles with a sticky layer, and then turn the carpet over and vacuum from the inside — this way you will remove the remaining dust.
3 Raise the pile
The cleanliness of the carpet is also affected by how often you lift the crumpled pile. Dust clogs under it, and when cleaning it becomes more difficult to clean it. To avoid this problem, comb out the lint with a clothes brush at least once a month.
Places where furniture or other heavy objects have stood are a little more difficult to straighten. To do this, put a piece of ice on the crumpled place, let it melt for a couple of minutes, and then carefully lift the pile with a toothbrush.
four Quickly remove stains
If you accidentally knocked over a cup of coffee on the carpet or stained textiles in another way, you need to immediately deal with the stain. Delay threatens a trip to the dry cleaners. Try to immediately blot the liquid with a paper or regular towel to prevent it from soaking in.
If we are talking about a dark spot, for example, spilled tea, then you need to prepare the following composition: mix window cleaner with clean water in a 1: 2 ratio. Then apply it on the stain, cover with any cotton cloth. Iron the fabric on top with an iron, this is necessary so that the dirt passes to it from the carpet.
For other stains, you can try another composition: take baking soda, dishwashing liquid and table vinegar. Mix the ingredients and pour the composition into a spray bottle. Apply the mixture to the stain and then wipe with a clean cloth or sponge.
5 Wash your rugs in the machine
Small rugs can be washed in the washing machine. In this way, it is easy to clean textiles from the bathroom, hallway or from the balcony. However, be sure to study the labels on the products: if it is indicated that machine washing is prohibited or dry cleaning is necessary, then you should not experiment. If there are none, feel free to use the washing machine.
Select a cold temperature setting and add liquid detergent. For products with a rubber lining, do not use bleach, otherwise the base will deteriorate. After washing, hang the carpet on the balcony, if possible — the textiles will dry better in the open air.
6 Use impregnation
You probably know that shoes can be treated with a water-repellent compound so that dirt does not stick to them in rainy weather. The same can be done with carpet. To do this, you should give textiles to dry cleaning or buy a special spray. If you choose the latter option, then be sure to read the instructions for which materials the composition is suitable for. It can usually be used on woolen and synthetic carpets, carpet and upholstery.
7 Choose the right material and color
If you are at the stage of choosing a new carpet, take a closer look at the material from which it is made. There are models that repel dirt, but they are quite difficult to find, their cost is also quite high. Therefore, pay attention to polyester and nylon. These materials are less dirty, and stains and dirt from them are easy to clean.
The color of the carpet is also important. On light-colored material, contamination is more visible. Therefore, for a room where you often walk, take a slightly darker carpet, and leave light ones for rooms where textiles will only play a decorative role.
