There's vomit on your rug and you don't know how to clean it up? Do not panic. If you follow the following steps, your carpet will be clean again in no time.
There is already 1 golden rule when it comes to cleaning your carpet:be very quick ! This prevents the vomit from drying up and getting into the fibers of the carpet, creating a stain. It is therefore very important to react immediately when the vomit is only just on the carpet .
Step 1:Scrape and Remove
Take a scraper or flat object and remove as much vomit as possible . You can also use a dirt can for this. Make sure you have included all the large lumps before moving on to the next step.
Step 2:Lukewarm water with ammonia
Take a cloth and wet it with lukewarm water . Add a tablespoon of ammonia to this. Gently dab the vomit stain with your cloth. Be careful : do not rub the vomit stain with your cloth , but only dab over the stain . Rubbing will only make the stain bigger. Continue to dab for 1 minute until the stain is completely gone.
Step 3:Let it dry for a while
To finish, take a dry cloth and blot away any remaining moisture. Let your carpet dry for a while and your carpet will be stain-free again.
Step 4 Fighting odor
If the vomit has left an odor , you can sprinkle some soda over it . The soda will neutralize the sour smell on the carpet. Leave the soda for a few hours and then vacuum it up with the vacuum cleaner.
