Remove Odor From Carpet

Carpets tend to absorb dirt, stains and animal hair as well as mould and mildew. Taking good care of your carpet will prevent dust mites, lice and carpet bugs from living there. If you experience carpet problems due to dust, insects, and other problems, you can contact us at Carpet Cleaning Northern Beaches, who are experienced in this matter. That way, your carpet will always feel new and avoid the smell of the carpet. Here are some ways you can do to prevent the carpet from unpleasant odour because the smell of the carpet will be very disturbing of course.

1 Suck dust on the carpet. Prepare your carpet for the treatment of deodorizing by sucking the dust first. If your carpet holds a lot of dirt, sweep it first to lift the fibres and loosen the dirt, then do the suction.

2 Make a deodorizing mixture. Carpets can be effectively cleaned using products that may already be in your closet. Mix the following ingredients into a bowl that will no longer be used for cooking:
1 cup of borax (available at the hardware store)
2 cups of cornflour
1/2 cup baking soda

3 Clean the area that is stained or smelly with vinegar and water. Fill the spray bottle with a half part vinegar solution, then half a part of water and spray the area that needs cleaning. Be sure not to flush it too much with liquid, because you don’t want moisture that hasn’t evaporated to cause mould growth.

4 Sprinkle the cornflour mixture on the carpet. Spread it evenly around the carpet, focusing on areas that tend to be the dirtiest or smelly. Leave the room and let the mixture soak into the carpet for an hour.
Keep children and pets away from the room when the mixture soaks into the carpet.
Don’t use too much powder so that your vacuum is difficult to handle. A little sprinkling is enough to remove mild odours and stains.

5 Vacuum the carpet once more. Run a vacuum several times on the carpet to clean the cornflour mixture. When finished, discard the vacuum bag.
