How to Solve Park City Heber Utah Winter Carpet Issues – Snow

December 27, 2018

Winter in Park City, Heber and Utah in general is a glorious time. The mountains come into their own with glittering snow-frosted vistas just begging to be played on. But while the snow and ice look like a fairytale outside, come winter your carpets start telling a different story. Tracked in snow, mud, salt and pet hair wreak havoc under your feet.

So what to do? In our four-part Park City special series, we’ll show you how to deal with Winter’s worst…..and keep your carpets plush and plump and pleasing.

This week, the number one culprit – snow.

Snow is beautiful while it’s still snow. And outside. Once it’s inside the house, it quickly turns from frosty white stuff into dirty wet stuff, gumming up your entranceway and leaving your carpets streaked and dirty. Here’s our simple, 4-step process for removing slush stains from your carpets.

•If the slush or snow is still frozen, remove any excess from your carpet with a dry cloth.

•Mix soap and hot water and apply to a clean cloth; press the carpet to remove the stain, working from the outside to the center until the stain is gone.

•Rinse the carpet with a little bit of cold water and use a clean, dry towel to pat dry.

•Once the carpet is fully dry, vacuum up any dirt that remains.

If the marks refuse to listen to reason, it’s time to call in the big guns at BCS. We’ll have your carpets spit spot (without the spots) in a jiffy. Give us a call today at 801 561 1730.

Mud is never beautiful. Except possibly when they use it to make those fancy mud tshirts in Hawaii. Here’s our simple, 5-step process for removing mud stains from your carpets.

1. Gently vacuum up any dry surface mud with the hose of a vacuum, as to not grind it into the carpet.

2. Sprinkle baking soda, cornstarch, baby powder or other absorbent onto the stain and let stand at least an hour before vacuuming again

3. Apply a dry-cleaning solvent, such as rubbing alcohol, acetone, mineral spirits or a commercial cleaner to the back of a clean cloth and blot gently, working from the edges of the stain to the center until stain disappears

4. Blot the carpet with a dry sponge or cloth until the liquid is absorbed,

5. Make sure the area is well ventilated until the carpet is fully dry

Winter in Park City, Heber and Utah in general is a glorious time. The mountains come into their own with glittering snow-frosted vistas just begging to be played on. But while the snow and ice look like a fairytale outside, come winter your carpets start telling a different story. Tracked in snow, mud, salt and pet hair wreak havoc under your feet.

This week, we’ll help you get rid of pesky mud stains.

Salt is a pain in the proverbial.  Messy in the bag, it’s even messier outside the bag. Here’s our simple, 6-step process for removing salt stains from your carpets.

1. In a spray bottle, mix ½ warm water and ½ white vinegar. A dish-washing detergent solution may be used instead, but it may not be as effective.

2. Spray the stained area with the solution. If you’re not using a spray bottle, just pour a small amount into the area.

3. Use a brush or a cloth to gently stir the salt to the surface.

4. Press a dry, clean towel over the wet area, dabbing gently so you don’t force the stain further into the carpet.

5. You can follow with a wet/dry vacuum to get out any excess salt or solution.

6. Make sure the area is well ventilated as it dries since vinegar is a very strong smell.
