Muddy foot prints on your carpet

This time of year muddy footprints are inevitable! Whether you and your children have been out enjoying a muddy walk, or your pets have returned from their outdoor adventure to leave muddy paw prints across your carpets. Fortunately we have a few tricks to help get mud out of your carpet.

1. Let it dry

With most stains, we’re told to get to work straight away, but the rules are a little different when it comes to mud. The best thing you can do is leave it to dry. Using a wet cloth will simply cause the mud to spread, or worse work it further into the carpet fibres.

Once the mud is dry, simply vacuum it and it should disappear.

2. Treat the Spot

With some carpets vacuuming is not enough and a stain remains. Try using two teaspoons of liquid hand dish-washing detergent and two cups of water. Then with a white cloth gently work the solution into the mud-stained areas, leave to dry and try vacuuming again.

3. Take Care

Don’t over wet the area. If you apply too much water, excess moisture can cause mould problems. If your room smells damp it’s worth investigating whether you have trapped moisture in your carpets. Mould is a nasty fungus that is bad for your health – particularly if you have allergies or asthma so always talk to a professional carpet cleaner.
