Carpets are easier to clean if you are aware of the vacuuming techniques and cleaning products. Check out the tips on how to remove stubborn stains from your carpet. Never leave a stain for too long. The spill sitting for a long time can be difficult to remove. The faster you remove the stain the better it is for the longevity of the carpet. In the case of a food spill, remove the food particles using a dull knife. Now blot the stain using water and very little detergent. Using a vacuum at its highest suction mode move the vacuum forward and backward to remove the stain completely. If the need arises, add some more water.

Use a reliable spot-removal solvent, particular those approved by the manufacturer or The Carpet and Rug Institute of America. Add a few drops of the solvent on a clean light coloured cloth and smudge the carpet in an irrelevant area. If there is a change in the color of the carpet call a professional carpet cleaning company. Incase, the stain is not removed after cleaning, use 3% hydrogen peroxide and moist tufts in the area of the stain and allow it to stand for about an hour and bolt repeatedly before it is cleaned completely.

Following some simple tips can keep your carpet refreshing. Regularly vacuum your carpets to forbid the carpet from accumulating the soil. Depending on the carpet type a rotating brush vacuum, suction only or beater bar can be used. The carpet has to be professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months depending on the traffic.
