Most people love to have carpets in their homes and they have done so for very many years and even centuries. In fact, most homes these days have a carpet or a rug in almost every room including the bathroom. When carpets can be found in use in different rooms throughout the home, this means that they meet the brunt of children, pets and adult activity, day in and day out and this can make them quite susceptible to spills, dirt, smells and even to physical damage. When it comes to dirt, stains and odours from urine, smoke, mould, or dust different techniques to deodorise and clean the carpet are required in order to bring the carpet back into great shape and keep away smells and stains. In most cases, general cleaning techniques will not suffice in doing the great job you are looking to do, to bring back life and character back to the carpet and leave it looking great and smelling better than ever before. Below are some specific techniques that can be used to get rid of specific odours in your carpet.

First of all, if you are not too confident about doing the cleaning by yourself, or if the carpet has damage that is quite extensive or you fear causing even more damage to your expensive carpet, then it may be better to call in some help. If you live in the Lake Forest area you can search for Carpet cleaning in Lake Forest area to find help close to your home or office. If you are a hands on and practical person on the other hand and have the time to fix the problem then you can go ahead and follow some of the suggestions mentioned here and elsewhere. First of all, if you have the smell of cigarette smoke on your carpet, you can get rid of it by sprinkling a good amount of baking soda on the carpet, allow it a good amount of time to sit and absorb the smell and then vacuum it off when you think that it has done a good job for you. You can then run a steam cleaner with some white vinegar in the solution, to kill bacteria and remove some of the stains that may come from cigarettes.

If your carpet has started smelling mouldy then a different method will need to be employed. Depending on the extent of the damage from the mould, you may need to find some help from carpet cleaning in Mission Viejo, to properly get rid of the mould on the carpet as well as get rid of all the mould in your home as well. What is important when getting rid of the mould, is to ensure that all excess wetness is removed from the carpet, get rid of the mould on the surface where the carpet and that fresh air is allowed to circulate and ventilate the room. After that you can use some baking soda and white vinegar, as you did with the smoke odour to get rid of the mouldy smell on your carpet.
