Spot Cleaning

IOttawa Carpet Cleaning - Cleaning a large stain found on carpetf you’re not looking to do a deep-clean of your entire carpet, or have a localized stain that you want to get rid of, don’t go out to purchase expensive spot cleaners. Everything you need to clean your carpet stain is probably already available in your pantry.

All you need is baking soda, water, and a bit of vinegar. Combine the water and baking soda to make a paste, and cover the stain with it. After allowing it to settle for a few moments, add vinegar to the stain and watch the reaction lift it to the surface. Now, all it takes is a bit of water to rinse it away.

If the stain persists, chances are it just needs a few treatments. For tougher stains, it’s possible to apply the paste and work it in with a hard wire brush to get deep into your carpet fibres. Simply wash, rinse, and repeat until the stain is gone.

For those looking to DIY their carpet cleaning, generally, the best course of action is to rent carpet cleaning equipment.

This generally provides monetary savings compared to a professional carpet cleaning, but a considerably higher investment of time and energy for a typically a lower-quality clean.

While it is a perfectly reasonable course of action, it’s worth considering the benefits that professional carpet cleaning provides.

Enviropure Carpet Cleaning

Professional carpet cleaning offers advantages not available from rented equipment. Not only does professional cleaning give you access to trained professionals, but also industrial-level equipment fundamentally better at carpet cleaning than what is available at the consumer level.

The equipment and chemicals that our professionals use not only provide a better clean but a more efficient one as well. Moreover, when purchasing chemicals for consumer carpet cleaning equipment, you aren’t offered much in terms of choice. The environmental costs of the chemicals available are much higher than those used by Enviropure, so professional cleanings are greener as well.
