To help maintain your carpet, you need a trusted professional taking care of your carpet’s professional maintenance needs. Matted carpets are developed under some circumstances. To offer some tips on how you can re-fluff your carpets is what we at Tough Carpet Cleaning would like to do today.
Vacuuming & Cleaning is the First Thing to Do Before Fluffing Carpet
It is best to do a thorough cleaning of your carpet first before you tackle restoring matted carpet to make the fluffing process easier, and less messy. Pour a small amount of baking soda on the matted carpet area and let it sit for at least 15 minutes and up to 40 minutes if your carpet seems very unclean. Pulling away some of the dirt and debris stuck deep in your carpet is helpful in order to make it easier to fluff. Vacuum slowly and in multiple directions until the baking soda is completely removed. You can trust in the experts of Tough Carpet Cleaning to restore your carpets if cleaning the carpets proves to be a challenge.
How Do You Restore Flattened Carpet Pile?
Regardless of what you use to fluff up your carpet, there are always two primary steps to every method. Using various tools/household items, the steps include first applying heat and then fluffing your carpets. To make carpets look fluffy again, below are some steps to a highly successful method.
1) Heat Administration. In order to fix and revive matted carpets, you will initially have to apply heat. This essentially loosens up the carpet fibers and makes it more flexible to stand upright when fluffing.
Iron Use. Place a damp cloth over the matted area of your carpet. When you turn on your iron and place it at medium to low heat, carefully pressing down on the damp cloth for a few seconds. If you have a large, matted carpet area to re-fluff use a larger towel or have spare on hand.
Hairdryer Option. There’s no need for a damp cloth with a hairdryer by simply using the hairdryer over the matted carpet region. Maintain the hairdryer about 6-8 inches away from the surfaces until the carpet feels somewhat dry.
2) Fluff. To fluff up your carpets after applying heat, you can now use the following items. Until the carpet strands are more lifted with each of these items below, you should firmly yet gently scrape your matted carpet back and forth.
