This video shows you an easy way to remove rust from carpet. Believe it or not both vinegar and lemon juice are acids, and acids are good at eating away rust particles. Either one is strong enough to remove light duty rust stains. We at Chem-Dry of Tampa FL prefer the lemon juice to remove rust from carpet. Not only does it have a lower Ph it smells better too.
Both solutions are mild acids so don’t be surprised if you need to do several applications to remove all the visible rust from your carpet. This home remedy requires patience and some time to thoroughly clean out the rust particles. Make sure to lightly scape and vacuum the area before applying the lemon juice. This will reduce a lot of the loose rust that is on the surface.
If this at home solution doesn’t remove the rust from your carpet call a professional carpet cleaner to get the tougher stains removed.
