The wallpapering process often gets really messy, but the most horrifying part is when you see that wallpaper glue has spilled all over your carpets. It is normal for glue spills to occur while putting up new wallpapers, but if you have lived trough an experience such as this, you should know how hard it is to remove wallpaper glue from fabric.
There are some easy ways to remove the sticky material from your precious carpets without ruining them. Experienced cleaners such as the guys from end of lease cleaning Melbourne, have fought with the glue-on-carpet problem many times, and have discovered some easy ways to deal with it.
First of all you should gather the proper cleaning tools and detergents. Removing wallpaper glue is a task accomplished best with the help of a fabric softener solution, a sponge, a rag and some warm water. Start off by applying a significant amount of fabric softener directly on the area, stained by wallpaper adhesive. Let it sit for 10 minutes, so the fabric can get softer and the glue easier to remove. Use a plastic spatula to scrape of the excess glue, but do not apply pressure because you risk of getting the glue even more deep within the fabric. When the softener had sat long enough, grab the rag and warm water and gently start wiping of the glue, with precise short strokes.
If this doesn't do the trick, you should consider using a steam cleaner. If you do not own one, you may want to rent one. Renting comes with benefits of course – usually a rented steamer comes with instructions and with all of the needed detergents you may need. You can rent one from almost every cleaning company or store in which those are being sold.
If you decided to rent a steam cleaning machine, you may as well pay a professional to perform the cleaning, just to be sure that everything will be okay. Companies such as carpet cleaning Melbourne and many others specialize precisely in carpet cleaning, so it will be a piece of cake for the guys to clean your carpet.
