Don’t soak your carpet – Soaking is terrific for loosening up dirt and grime on hard floors, pots and clothing but you should never soak a stain on a carpet. Excessive moisture can result in mould and mildew growth, both of which are toxic and can ruin your carpets.
Don’t use harsh chemicals – Harsh chemicals such as bleach and abrasives should be avoided. The chemicals in these cleaning products will burn the colour right out of your carpets and result in bleach marks.
Coloured cleaning products – Highly tinted cleaning products can also damage your floors as the pigments can do irreparable damage.
Don’t scrub oily stains – Oily stains are very challenging to remove because the more it is rubbed, the more the oil will spread to contaminate other areas of the floor. For that reason, we don’t recommend to scrub an oily stain. Instead, get some tissue paper and place it on top of the stain.
