Helpful Carpet Cleaning Guide to Maintain Stair Carpeting Elegance

Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Crafts
The stair carpet is often the one that gets scuffed, stained and more worn-out than any other carpet in the home. With some serious footfall passing up and down the stairs it is therefore no surprising that a carpet's durability is key. The thing about stair carpeting us that it's quite difficult to clean it.

While there are a number of cleaning products, brushes, equipment and kit on the market that claim to solve the problem of scuffed and stained steps – the really important thing is to choose a carpet that is up to the task.

Households with children will be know all too well the sound of the young ones scamping up and down the steps – plus those times the family dog decides to go for a roam around the house.

Vacuuming is not enough to keep your carpet clean, especially if your stairs get a lot of traffic from kids and pets.

How to Clean the Stair Carpet

Of course the best way to have a clean carpet is not to let it get dirty in a first place. That's why expert advise that you encourage all of your guests to take off their shoes when entering your home.

To start the cleaning process you'll need to have a stiff broom for removing the large pieces of dirt and debris. It is best to start from the top of course, so the small particles can be gathered at the lowest step of the staircase.

You can follow the brooming process with a quick vacuuming of the stairs. Vacuum cleaners deal quite well with dust build ups, especially if it's one of the new models. Again start from the top of the stairs and go down step by step. Use the hose attachment or another that is suited for the corners of the stair (as you know dust tends to gather mostly in the corners).

Now it's time for the stain removal techniques and recipes. You can either buy a commercial carpet shampoo or you can make one yourself. The recipe for it is quite easy actually. Take a large spray bottle or a bucket and mix in it the following ingredients: hot water, baking soda, liquid soap (it's best that it's white or colourless) , white distilled vinegar and an essential oil of your choice.

Start cleaning the carpet from the top of the stairs and be sure to apply generously. If it's needed work the shampoo into the carpet with a scrub brush. It's quite important to dry the carpeting afterwards. You can choose from one of these methods

1. Take a wet/dry vacuum cleaner and remove all the excess water.

2. Take a thick paper towel or another highly absorbent towel and dry the stair with it.

3. Let them air dry for at least 12 hours.

To be absolutely sure that everything is perfectly clean you can vacuum the stairs again from top to bottom. In addition to being great for stairs, the Upholstery Tool is perfect for other difficult and hard-to-reach areas, such as couches and even inside your car. Steam cleaning is a preferred way of dealing with dust and dirt on your carpeting.
