Whilst "trendy" cleaning hacks are appearing more and more frequently on the internet, it is always best to err on the side of caution when it comes to the unintended use of cleaning products.'
Washing Detergent on Rugs & Carpets Hack
This cleaning hack has gone viral across TikTok with Cleaning Enthusiasts - it involves sprinkling Washing Detergent Power across your carpet, rubbing the detergent in to the carpet and vacuuming after.
This may make your carpet smell nice and fresh but will also leave you with a whole host of problems. Firstly, it will be almost impossible to vacuum up all of this power; even if it was possible to vacuum all the powdered detergent it will still leave a soapy residue on the surface of your carpet. Washing Detergent is meant to be used with water and washed away. The powder residue will in fact make your carpets sticky and attract dirt.
The soapy detergent may also cause skin irritation for pets and babies and is best being avoided altogether. Apart from the risks mentioned, this could also end up damaging your vacuum cleaner.
Alternatively, we recommend using a product that has been made specifically for cleaning your carets in this way such as The Vanish Oxi Action Stain Remover this product will remove minor stains, freshen your carpets and neutralise odours.
Always be carful when using cleaning products on your carpets, the correct chemicals and solutions on your carpet is critical. Not all fabric carpets are the same and need to be cleaned differently. If you have a wool carpet then a low PH chemical can only be used. Not having the knowledge that a professional carpet cleaning company has you may not know what the correct chemicals are to use in your specific carpet which could destroy your carpet.
Regular professional cleaning is vital to keep your carpet looking its best and to maintain a hygienic environment in your home. For regular maintenance or when vacuuming no longer removes all of the soil, or you have not been able to remove spots following the recommended carpet care and cleaning procedures, call a trained and qualified professional cleaner.
