How to Remove Furniture Marks from Carpet




I borrowed a steam carpet cleaner to clean the wet and explosive surprises Blitzkrieg left in his wake on an hourly basis when he had a bladder infection due to the chemotherapy.

Fortunately, Blitzkrieg is now back to his fine and fluffy self. My carpeting is another story. I spent an entire afternoon steam cleaning pet stains on the carpeting by the front door. I couldn’t move on to the rest of the living room or house like I normally do. We lived with the living room in the kitchen for several days. And then our bedroom in the computer room. And then the computer room in our bedroom. And then the guest/sewing room in our bedroom.

This is about the time I was considering maid service.  Or a box of matches. 



I took advantage of the situation to play with a new furniture space plan for the living room. Later I moved all of the furniture back to its original place because I had furniture leg indentations in the carpeting and I did not know how to fluff the carpet back up.

I might have added an easy jujz to my room if I found these Molly Cleaning Tip Institute Videos earlier. Oh well. I’m embedding it for you in case you are in the same carpet indent situation and for the next time I borrow a steam cleaner and clean the carpets.



 I did a little poking around Molly Maid and found a several cleaning tip videos that could make life easier. I pinned How to Remove Coffee Table Crop Signs and How to Remove Body Oil from Clothes to my Pinterest boards (follow me on Pinterest? Pretty please?) so I would remember them.

I did some more checking around Molly Maid and found they have a green cleaning option where they use nontoxic green cleaners. Huh. Who’d thunk it? I never expected there would be a conventional cleaning service that uses the type of cleaners I only allow in my home. I wonder if that extends to carpets…
