Christmas is all about family eating, drinking and making merry. The best part of Christmas is a holiday party with family and friends. If you are planning to host a soirée, then you also need to make sure that the next day your home floors don’t turn into a workout ground with continuous scrubbing. Christmas celebration parties bring in a lot of foot traffic and many possibilities of spillages. One of the biggest problem faced by homeowners is how to clean their carpets after the party. At Carpet Cleaner Melbourne, we provide you with the best carpet cleaning services in Melbourne. Our experts provide excellent carpet cleaning services using a systematic approach. Here are some tips from our experts to help your carpet recoup after the Christmas party.
Tip 1 – Walkthrough for Visible Leftovers
The first step is to do a thorough walkthrough of your party space. This will help you in collecting leftovers like candy, large food crumbs, garbage left over by wandering guests and many such things. Picking up these will make your carpet visibly clean.
Tip 2 – Look out for Spills
If you find any spills, you need to clean them calmly. Here, remember to clean the spill by blotting and not rubbing or scrubbing. Scrubbing will ruin the complete look of your carpet. You can always use a white clean cloth to blot up the spills.
Tip 3 – Wax and Gum
Removing wax from the carpet fibre is a tricky affair. The first step to clean the wax or gum is to freeze it. Once it has frozen, you need to carefully pull it out using a blunt knife or spoon. If any water or liquid residue stays behind, make sure to blot the carpet with a towel.
Tip 4 – Oil Spills
Oil spills should be treated differently than drink spills. You need to first place a paper towel over the spill and iron the towel in a warm setting. The oil will get stuck to the towel which can later be either wiped or cleaned off. If the oil spring is strong, you can sprinkle baking soda and corn starch all over the spill and gently rub it. Remember to rub in such a way that the powder penetrates deep into the carpet. Let the powder sit for 15 minutes and then vacuum the area thoroughly.
Tip 5 – Get Rid of Bad Odors
Getting bad odour out of your carpet is a delicate task and needs to be done with care. To remove bad odour from the carpet, you need to sprinkle baking soda onto the carpet and let it stay overnight. The next day you need to thoroughly vacuum the carpet to remove the soda. Baking soda absorbs the odour without leaving any odour of its own.
The above tips will always assist you in restoring your carpet after a Christmas party.
