Keep your carpets ready for the big game!
If you're a big football fan, chances are you have people over every Sunday to watch your favorite teams go head to head all the way up until the big game. But with guests comes the spilled drinks, knocked-over dip bowl, and the dropped chicken wings… yikes! Don't cancel your plans just because you're worried about ruining the living room or man cave carpets, there are some easy steps you can take to avoid spots, stains, and other future messes.
1. The Situation: Your friend spills beer or wine on the carpet
It is important to act fast. The longer you leave a stain on the carpet, the less likely you'll be able to effectively remove it later. Mix ⅓ cup white vinegar and ⅔ cup plain water. Apply the solution lightly; don't drown your carpet. Dab, don't rub, the spot with a clean, preferably neutral-colored paper towel or dishtowel. Aggressively scrubbing the stain will cause the particles to spread to other clean fibers of your carpet while dabbing lifts them to the surface.
2. The Situation: The last time you had a party, guests tracked dirt and left stains on your carpet
Ask your guests to remove their shoes at the door. This is the most effective way to combat future dirt from settling in your carpets. Sand and dirt particles have sharp edges that damage carpet fibers and create irreversible damage! You can also place a welcome mat outside your door where guests can easily wipe their feet and get rid of most of the dirt that could be tracked inside.
3. The Situation: You want to get ahead of the game
The easiest way to keep your carpets looking clean is to vacuum regularly. It's recommended that you vacuum at least twice a week to avoid dirt and grime buildup. Vacuuming extends the life of your carpet and is better for the overall health of your family and home.
