Carpet Cleaning Fairfax VA| Removing Laundry Detergent from Your Carpet


Steam carpet cleaning Fairfax VA is the best process to get laundry detergent out of your carpet.

One of the most common household chemicals that is found within your home is laundry detergent. If laundry detergent accidentally is spilled on your carpet, you could be in for an ordeal. Once it gets into the carpets fibers, you could possibly spend hours trying to remove it since the liquid is very thick and sticky.

It could take several hours for you to even make a dent. One of the best ways to take care of the problem is to use a heavy-duty wet/dry vacuum cleaner as well as a steamer.


It’s important to flush the area with hot, clean, water.

Saturate the area that has the laundry detergent spill with the clean hot water. Run your hand over the carpet until it feels sudsy like a sponge. The use a wet/dry vacuum cleaner to extract the excess water from the carpet. After you have extracted a considerable amount of excess water, the carpet fibers will still feel wet. This is normal. Since the wet/dry vacuum does not possess the suction power to that of a truck mounted carpet cleaning Fairfax VA it will take a while to become damp or almost dry.  

Let your carpet sit for a few minutes

This will allow the detergent to separate from the carpets fibers. Then, repeat the process with your wet vacuum cleaner until you have most of laundry detergent out of the carpet. Use a towel to dab the carpet until the rest of the laundry detergent has come up.

Although it may seem that the carpet is clean and all of the laundry detergent has been removed, there are still traces of the detergent embedded in the fibers that could potentially damage your carpet or harm your pets.
