Getting out Dents

11-10-16.jpgWhether you plan to get new couches or just to rearrange some furniture, carpet dents can put a real dent in your plan.  They pop up almost everywhere and seem impossible to get out.  Thankfully, there is a simple solution that will make short work of these dents, with all of the materials being readily available.  Read on to find out more!

Of all of the home-remedies out there for furniture dents, ice takes the cake.  It allows for water to seep back into the fibers, giving the once crushed spot new life, and making it look like new once more.  Simply place the cubes at least 2 inches apart in the dent (with the size of the cube dependent on the size of the dent) and wait.

When the carpet is dry, vacuum up the area.  By this time, all of the individual fibers should be standing again, but if they are being a little stubborn, don’t worry.  Grab a fork and gently fluff up those pieces, and before you know it, your carpet will look great once more with the new floor plan.

Now, a word of warning with this method: do not use it on antique or hand-dyed rugs, as the water can weaken the fibers.  In addition, steer clear of using this with delicate rugs, and be sure to be careful with a carpet that has a wood floor underneath.  While this method is effective, it should not be used with all sorts of carpets.

Should you have one of these carpets, you can still get the dents out of it by calling in the professionals.  We here at Bayside Carpet Cleaning have been trained to clean some of the most delicate carpets out there, so you can be assured that we will handle your carpet with care.
