Important: Before trying this method, check what the warranty says. Some warranties prohibit the use of certain chemicals and solutions on stain-proof mats. The use of prohibited solutions invalidates the guarantee.
Step 1: prepare the carpetUnderstand that bleach does not easily remove molds from the carpet. If the carpet is moldy, first use a mold cleaning product to remove the spores that attach to the carpet fibers. If there are any encrusted substances that stick to the carpet, use a knife to loosen them to clean them later. Before applying the bleach, use a vacuum cleaner to vacuum up all the dirt and debris still adhering to the carpet.
Step 2: prepare the bleach solutionBefore preparing the bleach solution, be sure to cover your hands with rubber gloves and wear a mask to protect the respiratory system from the strong odor emitted by the bleach chemicals. Just a drop of bleach on your hands can cause side effects, so be very careful when handling it.
Using bleach directly on the carpet will further fade it. Instead, mix a good bleach solution in a container by adding a cup of bleach to a liter of water, then pour the mixture into a spray container. Before proceeding with the application of the solution on the carpet, leave the room or work area well ventilated. If possible, take the rug to a place with fresh air.
Important: Never allow bleach to come into contact with other chemicals, especially ammonia, a chemical that is also used for cleaning. The fumes produced by the bleach and ammonia combination can be fatal.
