Gum – the nemesis of any clean carpet. As many parents of kids know, gum has a funny way of ending up in all sorts of places, including on your carpet. While it is generally fairly difficult to remove gum from carpet, it becomes increasingly more difficult to remove the longer it is left there. Not only is gum harder to remove after being neglected, it is also likely to be stepped on and pushed deeper into the carpet. Simply pulling the gum out of the carpet can damage the carpet fibers and end up causing a bigger problem than was originally there. Here we’ve compiled a list of techniques to help remove gum from your carpet in a way that will help preserve the fibers and keep it looking pristine.

To ensure the longevity of your carpet, and the health of all members of the household (humans and animals alike) it is important to know how often to have your carpets cleaned.
