Learn how to cleaning pee off furniture or carpets
Specific detergents or grandmother’s recipes?
If many carpet cleaning products meet the requirements of the greatest possible cleanliness, it is clear that two schools clash: detergents from the chemical industry, and the drugstore products of our ancestors, deemed greener .
Carpet care products
If your rug or carpet needs a quick and effective cleaning, several maintenance products can help you. There are many references of descaling foams, carpet shampoos and other cleaning sprays for carpets on the market. Several professional brands offer their cleaning solutions for rugs and carpets, and are called Vanish, Spado or King. Most of these carpet cleaning products are suitable for all types of fibers and tend to remove all types of stains. The notable differences that can be observed are the quantity to be used, the action time and the drying time. Some are intended to eliminate dust mites.
Products of yesteryear
At a time when ecology has become a major social issue, cleaning is no exception to an evolution towards the use of products that are more respectful of the environment. The cleaning products used in the past – often recognized as more ecological and just as effective – have found their place on our shelves. To stain rugs and carpets, baking soda, white vinegar or even lemon juice offer surprising results against almost all types of stains. Without forgetting the soaps from ancestral recipes, Aleppo soap, black soap and Marseille soap which remain sure values for all types of cleaning.
Drying a rug after washing
The localized cleaning of a carpet does not generally require a long drying time, nor too complicated to implement. If the fibers are not too soaked, a few minutes or a few hours in a ventilated place will be enough to find a perfectly dry and clean floor covering. For deep or water washdown, other methods are required.
After a deep wash of a rug or carpet, when a large part or all of the coating has been wet, drying takes on a whole new twist. To evacuate a maximum of water retained in the fibers, a first vigorous passage with the scraper will evacuate a good part of the soiled water and the dust remained on the surface. In a second step, the use of a water and dust vacuum cleaner will extract the water that has remained trapped in t
e material and will save you a tedious spin. Equipped with a power superior to conventional household vacuum cleaners, these vacuum cleaners also used on construction sites are capable of extracting large quantities of water in a few minutes. Once your mat has been purged of most of the water, it can be laid out on a flat, warm surface if possible to speed up the water evaporation process. Drying in the open air is also an option not to be neglected, but you still need to have enough to spread your carpet in good conditions.
