Homemade Cleaning Solutions
Making your own cleaning solutions is a great way to save money and also know exactly what’s going into your carpet. If you do make your own, be sure to test a small area of your carpet first and also gently scrub using just a small amount of the solution at a time.
Some of our favorite options for DIY carpet cleaners are baking soda and vinegar, dishwashing detergent, ammonia, and hydrogen peroxide.
Have Your Favorite Cleaner On Hand
It can also be helpful to have a store-bought specialty cleaner on hand in case you need it. There are many on the market that are non-toxic and safe for pets.
Some that work well are OxiClean, Resolve, and Spot Shot. Always be sure not to over saturate your floors with the cleaner as this can leave dirt-attracting residue behind. Also, rinse and dry the area thoroughly after treating it with a cleaner.
Continuous Professional Cleanings
Remember that while do-it-yourself methods are often necessary, they don’t replace professional cleanings on a routine basis.
Pet urine and stains tend to penetrate deep into carpet fibers, backing, and even hard flooring. Potent odor crystals are left behind and remain trapped beneath the surface. This could be why those pesky smells keep coming back, no matter how many times you’ve cleaned the affected areas.
Chem-Dry’s unique method for carpet cleaning in Riverside, CA. gently yet powerful blasts and extracts these crystals at the source, leaving your home cleaner and smelling fresh.
