House owners will agree that carpets are beautiful and lovely to look at especially when they are new. But since carpets are there to be walked upon they will inevitably get soiled. Due to the proliferation of aromatic candles in the market many house owners will also experience having candle wax on their carpets. It can be quite a challenge to remove candle wax from carpets but it is doable and this article will teach you to do it.
Number one, manually remove the candle wax from the carpet. It is important that you do the procedure gently to ensure that the carpet fibers won’t get damaged. Make it a point to gently pry the wax off and ensure that the fibers do not get pulled and damaged. Once you get the excess wax out of the carpet you can start with the process of removing those that are embedded in the carpet’s fibers. That is one of the first steps we have our clients do when they call our carpet cleaner San Diego company.
Next, go get a flat iron and a paper towel. Lay the paper towel flat on the carpet where the wax is located. To ensure that your carpet fibers won’t get singed just set the flat iron into medium heat. Slowly run the flat iron over the paper towel so it can melt the wax on the carpet fibers. The paper towel will then have some grease like stains on it which is the wax being melted and absorbed. This is another step we suggest to clients of our carpet cleaning Carlsbad company.
Number three, if the candle is colored then there will be stains in your carpet, too. The market have some products which are specifically made for this type of carpet stain. Make sure though that you test this first in a small patch of your carpet that is specifically for testing products. Getting small patches as testers for products for your carpet is a good and wise thing to do. We recommend this as well to clients that call for area rugs our drapery cleaners San Diego company.
These are some of the ways that you can remove candle wax remover from your carpet. These are easy to do and very practical financially. Sometimes though you would really need to call a professional carpet cleaner. First do some assessment so you will know if you can do the job properly. Once you have done the job and it is not successful do not hesitate to hire professional carpet cleaners immediately.
