Getting Mud Out of Your Carpet!In Winter on February 28, 2017 at 3:31 pm | Written by greenadmin
Mud gets tracked into your home and onto your carpeting? What can you do? Before calling a professional you can try these steps yourself to clean it up.
Springtime and storm season and fall weather can bring with it lots and lots of mud. Whether it’s from our kids or our pets, mud season is on its way.
Here’s a foolproof way to get the mud out of the carpet if it makes it further than the door.
Step 1: Let the mud dry where it lays.
We know this sounds crazy and you’re itching to tackle it immediately but resist the urge, please! You’ll thank us later for the tip.
When you let the mud dry it is far easier to remove from the carpet; scrubbing the mud will push the mud further into your carpet fibers. If you can’t resist the urge or the mud it just too wet, your can blot it semi-dry to remove the excess water.

Step 2: Once the mud is completely dry, slowly vacuum the area to remove any excess dirt.
Slowly vacuuming removes more dirt, and vacuuming longer than you normally would and going in all directions is also more beneficial. The longer you spend vacuum the area the better the chance you have at removing all the mud.
Step 3: After removing as much dirt as possible while vacuuming, it’s time to break out the good stuff, and we’re talking about your dish soap!
Mix one teaspoon of your dish soap to one cup of lukewarm water. Make more if you need it.
Step 4: Grab a white cloth, so you watch the stain lift right out of your carpet fibers.
Blot the solution you made in step three onto the carpet. You’ll want to continue blotting the stain until the stain is all gone.
Step 5: Gently blot the newly cleaned area with a clean dry cloth or paper towels.
Step 6: The muddy stain still hanging around? Call your local carpet cleaning company...GREEN T!
