Carpets are an integral part of the interiors of your home or office. However, carpet cleaning is sometimes a challenging and time-consuming process to clean carpets at home. So, here are some safe cleaning techniques to follow while you are attempting to clean a carpet. These techniques will make all the difference in carpet maintenance and keep you from making any costly mistakes in the future.

Carpet cleaning methods used by many professional cleaners are outdated and often pose health hazards to people and pets. Several safe carpet cleaning methods can clean even the most delicate carpets without potentially harmful chemicals.

Importance of well-maintained carpets 

Maintaining your carpets is the best way to keep them clean and useful. Treating carpet stains will help keep carpets looking good for a long time. If you maintain them regularly, they will look better for a longer period. This means that you should aim to clean your carpets at least once every six months, depending on how much foot traffic and dirt they are exposed to.

Treating your carpets with the best house cleaning solution that includes deodorizing agents will provide a pleasant scent and make it easier for you to vacuum your carpets later. This way, you get the best of both worlds in terms of keeping your carpets looking good and smelling good.

Hot Water Extraction

This method uses hot water and detergent to remove stains from your carpet. The process does not involve chemicals or cleaning products, making it more environmentally friendly. However, it can take a long time for this process to complete because it involves several steps.

 Steam Cleaning

 This method uses steam and detergents to clean carpets. It is also a highly recommended method because it helps remove tough stains from your carpet while maintaining its color and texture.

 Dry Foam Carpet Cleaning

 This is one of the easiest methods of removing stains from your carpet. It only involves the use of dry foam, which means that there are no risks involved with cleaning your carpet with this method. The dry foam will soak up all the impurities on your carpet and leave it looking as good as new.


The traditional water+salt+vinegar carpet cleaning method gets amazing results on regular dirt and pet stains. The solution is to mix four tablespoons of salt, 2 cups of vinegar, and about 1 gallon of warm water. Soak up any water with towels or rugs, then spray the solution onto the carpet. Let it stay for about 5 minutes, then take a rug or towel that has been soaked in warm water and blot up the excess moisture from the carpet. Repeat this process until all the moisture is gone from the rug or at least until it is almost dry. If you have greasy spots, you can use a brush to help get them out (a scrub brush works well).

We also recommend using a good-quality vacuum cleaner before applying this solution so that most of the dirt and debris are removed first before applying this solution to your carpets.

Baking soda+ water+ vinegar  

Baking soda is a safe, effective, and cheap alternative to expensive carpet cleaning products. This mixture is one of the most popular methods for removing tough stains from carpets. It’s very effective on pet urine, blood, and chocolate. Don’t mix straight vinegar into the baking soda because it might cause it to foam too much and be difficult to get out of your carpet.

This is what you will need:

  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • Spray bottle filled with water

Mix the ingredients in a bowl until well combined. Spray the mixture directly onto the carpet and scrub it into the fabric with a brush or broom. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes before blotting up any excess liquid with a towel. Allow the baking soda solution time to dry completely. Vacuum the carpet when it’s completely dry.

Salt+ Brox + Vinegar

This is one of the most popular homemade solutions for cleaning carpets. Salt is a powerful ingredient in carpet cleaning products. It removes dirt from carpets by drawing out contamination from deep within each fiber. When it comes into contact with the dirt in your carpet, it dissolves it and then washes it away with water. When choosing a salt cleaner for your carpets, make sure that the cleaner contains sodium chloride (NaCl). This type of salt is used to clean the most delicate fabrics, including silk, wool, and cotton.

 Mix equal parts of salt, vinegar, and boiling water, then add two tablespoons of Brox (a common dishwashing detergent). Apply the solution on one section of the carpet at a time, rub in small circles and leave to dry naturally. After drying, use a brush to loosen any stains that might remain.

To wrap up

Carpets are one of the most useful things in our homes. They separate us from the cold floor and add warmth to our home insides. They are true friends when you have kids and pets at home. The main problem is that carpets get dirty, and then they become unhealthy for you and your family. If you don’t want to vacuum them too often, you should consider carpet cleaning from a professional company.
