Carpet / April 15, 2018 / Elva Casey
There is never any harm in going to online classified ads as well. Here you should find people selling off their old carpets at very low prices. It may be difficult for you to determine whether or not the carpet is of high quality and you may need to live locally in order to be able to go and inspect the carpet or pick it up for purchase. A simple solution will also be to try to find local flooring stores that are going out of business. Unfortunately many of these stores will go out of business every single year and will sell off their merchandise at largely discounted prices in order to recoup some of their losses. This presents you with an opportunity to find a bargain. At the same time you could just go shopping when sales on. Look for carpeting stores that are running sales and have a browse around when their prices drop.
Other ways to clean carpet. If you have a spill on your carpet, you should try and get the spill up as fast as possible. The faster you get the spill up, the less likely chance of having a stain. When you have a stain, never use an iron or a hair dryer to dry a carpet stain, doing this will only seal the stain permanently on your rug. If you notice a spill or make one, quickly grab a super absorbent cloth such as a chamois, shammy, or towel. When you are trying to absorb the spill don't press very hard the first time because you might press the spill further down into the pad. Lightly lay the super absorbent cloth on the spill and let it soak up what it can the first time. The second time you come back to the spill, try and use a cleaning agent along with the super absorbent chamois or cloth. If you need to use a cleaning agent or liquid, make sure to read the label and follow the directions. If the spill is not completely up after the second time, use a steam cleaner on it. No matter how careful you are, chances are that you will have a spill one day on your carpet. When this happens, don't panic. Just follow the above steps to help you get the spill up before it leaves a stain.
