Baking soda can be nature’s deodorizer for your smelly carpets! However, do you know the disadvantages of using baking soda as a carpet cleaner ?
Sprinkle baking soda on the odor causing area and it will absorb the odor and it will potentially get rid of the bad odors that are in your carpets. Including pet stains, food and drink spills, and contamination from other bacteria’s that are tracked in your home on your shoes. Most cases it will absorb the odor, but do you know what it leaves behind?
The particles of baking soda, much like sand, are so small, that a portion of the product remains in the carpet fiber or sifts beneath the carpet and padding to the floor below. If you use baking soda and one day rip up your carpeting, you’ll see a surprising amount of its residue left behind! You will be amazed how much baking soda or carpet refresher your vacuums do not pick up. Baking soda or freshener product are so small, they can clog the pores of your vacuum’s bag or HEPA filter.
Using baking soda can be a quick fix to carpet odor issues, however, moderation is the best practice. Do not over saturate the odor area by pouring too much, a little goes a long way. Remember to leave the more serious odor and stains to professional carpet cleaners that can remove the stains and odor out of your carpets completely without any residue left on your carpets. This can help preserve the life of your rugs and carpets.
