The least of your problems is the unpleasantness of how crushed carpets looks. When having matted carpet in your home there are copious amounts of dust, debris, and dirt trapped in between the carpet fibers. To help maintain your carpet, a trusted professional taking care of your carpet’s professional maintenance is a must. Matted carpets can develop under different circumstances. To help you re-fluff the carpets, we at Palm Springs Carpet Cleaning would like to offer some recommendations.
Properly Vacuum Carpet
Before you tackle restoring matted carpet, it’s best to do a thorough cleaning of your carpet first to make the fluffing process easier, and less messy. If the carpets are obviously filthy, on the matted carpet area, pour a small amount of baking soda and let it sit for at least 15 minutes and up to 40 minutes. Pulling away some of the dirt and debris stuck deep in your carpet is helpful in order to make it easier to fluff. Vacuum slowly and in multiple directions until the baking soda is completely removed. You can trust in the experts of Palm Springs Carpet Cleaning to restore your carpets in the event cleaning the carpets proves to be a challenge.
Restore Flattened Carpet with Heat
Regardless of what you use to fluff up your carpet there are always two primary steps to every method. Using various tools/household items, these steps include first applying heat and then fluffing your carpets. To make carpets look fluffy again below are some steps to a highly successful method.
1) Heat Administration. To fix and revive matted carpets, you will initially have to apply heat to fix and revive matted carpets. This essentially loosens up the carpet fibers and makes it more flexible in order to stand upright when fluffing.
Iron Method. Place a damp cloth over the matted area of your carpet. When you turn on your iron and place it at medium to low heat, carefully pressing down on the damp cloth for a few seconds. If you have a large, matted carpet area to re-fluff, use a larger towel or have spare on hand.
Hairdryer Method. There’s no need for a damp cloth with a hairdryer, simply use the hairdryer over the matted carpet region. Maintain the hairdryer about 6-8 inches away from the surfaces until the carpet feels somewhat dry.

After applying heat, you can now use the following items to fluff up your carpets. Until the carpet strands are more lifted with each of these items below, you should firmly yet gently scrape your matted carpet back and forth.
