How do I get mud out of a carpet?
Getting mud out of a carpet is one of the easiest things to do. It is a simple stain to remove as long as you do not overreact. The first thing that you need to do, is nothing. You have to let the mud completely dry before you try to remove it. If you try to spot clean it while it is wet, you will spread the stain and make it much much worse.
After the mud has completely dried, take out your vacuum and vacuum it up. Make several passes in different directions until all of the mud has been removed. In most cases, this is all that you will have to do. If, however, you live in an area with heavy clay concentrations you might still be left with a stain. After removing as much of the mud as possible with a vacuum, you can use a spotter.
Use a general spotter and lightly mist it’s on a terry cloth towel. Dab this spot, being careful not to rub to aggressively. Also, use caution not to over wet spots which could make it spread. When you are done spot cleaning, left the area completely dry before putting it back to use. If after a basic spot cleaning, you still have mud in the carpets you will need to contact a carpet cleaning professional. Anything more that you could do might make the spot worse.
