When you clean carpet, you have three considerations: type of carpet fiber, type of spot or stain, and type of cleaning method. Carpet fibers collect all sorts of grit, dirt, and foreign substances like gum, chocolate, and crayon residue from your kids. Determining the exact carpet cleaning method to use in Green Bay and Sturgeon Bay, WI is exactly what the professionals at ServiceMaster Recovery by Restoration Holdings are good at.
Each type of fiber shows stains and spots differently. Either they’re caked on, smudged in, smeared, or just plain piled on. Depending on the type of stain or spot, the fibers need to be treated in a specific manner.
Some helpful tips for avoiding those disgusting substances left by kids are:
- Make the kids leave their shoes in the mudroom or entryway instead of trampling over your prized carpets and rugs.
- Make sure crayons are only used in a specified work area or there’s a piece of paper or some other liner underneath, so they don’t ruin the carpeting.
- Insist that all chewed gum be placed into a tissue or paper towel and then tossed into the trash can. Moist blobs of chewed gum deposited upon your carpeting (accidently or otherwise) love to swirl into gooey globs of yuckiness around carpet fibers. Even hardened gum gets that crinkled nose effect. It’s best to pick it up with something other than your fingers.
- Chocolate deserves special attention. Depending on the temperature, it either smears, bubbles up, flattens out, or adheres unevenly to the carpet fibers. Perhaps kids should only eat chocolate in the kitchen.
