How to Utilize Ammonia for Common Carpet Stains

When people talk about ammonia what commonly comes to mind is the cleaning solution which is being used in order to clean tiles in bathrooms and on floors. It is true that ammonia is used primarily for these purposes but nobody ever said that it is all that this useful cleaning solution is good for.

If you have a carpet at home and you accidentally spilled coffee or any other drink on it you may be surprised to know that ammonia can be your best option to get rid of this kind of stain. Yes, ammonia has a lot of uses outside of cleaning floors and tiles. It too can be used in order to remove that ugly stain on your carpet.

Are you curious how you can utilize ammonia as a cleaning solution for your carpet? If you want to try using ammonia as a cleaning agent for carpet stains, check out the useful post below showing you how.

Ammonia is a chemical substance which you can easily use to clean your carpet. The only thing that you need to do is mix one part of clear ammonia with four parts of water. Mix this thoroughly until you have a very effective cleaning solution. Put this cleaning solution inside a spray bottle and you are now ready to get rid of the stains on your carpet.

To utilize this cleaning solution, spray it onto the affected area of the carpet. Then, allow it to soak the stain for several minutes. Afterward, get a clean white cloth and slowly blot the stained area of your carpet. Blotting helps in breaking down the stain as well as slowly transfers it from the carpet onto the cloth’s surface. As you continue to blot you will eventually be able to completely get rid of the stain.

Aside from removing stains, one other benefit that you can enjoy if you make use of ammonia to clean your carpet is to deodorize it. Unpleasant smell on the carpet can be a common problem and if you don’t know how to solve it try making the cleaning solution above and spraying it onto the portion of the carpet where the smell is coming from. Let the solution set for about ten minutes and then use a wet/dry vac to extract it. You will notice that the smell will no longer be there and your carpet looks and smells clean and fresh once more.

If you want to save money while still getting your carpet cleaned properly, make your own ammonia-based cleaning solution now!

What Others Say

I recently hired Van’s Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Service to clean my living room furniture and some oriental rugs and was thrilled with their service. I was very impressed with their responsiveness and attention to every detail as well as the excellent quality of their work. Customer service is not just a marketing slogan at Van’s. They really deliver and I highly recommend them.

We are in possession of a Chinese needlepoint done on silk that was given to my husband's parents in l938 by husband's father's brother, Uncle Richard, who was a missionary priest with the Passionist Fathers. He served in China from 1935 until he became a prisoner when China fell to communism and was imprisoned for seven years before his release. Over the years, this needlepoint (16" w x 48" long and framed) suffered what appeared to be rather severe water damage running about 15 inches from the top down. This piece had been made especially for Uncle Richard and was something that my husband has loved since he was a small boy. We contacted Vans Carpet Cleaning and they made an appointment to stop just to look at it. With no promise...Ernie took it with him and promised there would be no charge if it could not be cleaned. WELL....Ernie just brought it back to us and it looks WONDERFUL!!! I cried...my husband was speechless!! Ernie tried very hard as he knew the story. I asked him how long it took and he told us three house with Q-tips!!! The cost $149.99 plus $50.00 to preserve it to prevent any future damage. We would have paid so much more!! And we smile every day as we look at it proudly hanging!! THANK YOU VANS CARPET CLEANING!!!
