I’m a cleaning expert – after sitting furniture for 15 years, I removed carpet dents in SECONDS with a common tool

IF you’re a cleaning expert, it only takes fifteen seconds to solve a problem that’s been growing for fifteen years.

This is what a pro found out when using an ordinary household tool to remove deep furniture indentations from a carpet – and while you’re not a pro, you can too.

The carpet impressions are from furniture that stayed in place for 15 years

Brandon Pleshek is a third-generation caretaker whose grandfather started the family cleaning business 40 years ago.

Now Pleshek is using its TikTok platform to share his expertise with the world and help people overcome the fear of cleaning their homes.

In one video, he showed deep indentations in a blue plush rug.

“These dents are from furniture that has been in the same place for at least 15 years,” Pleshek explained.

Although the carpet was in good condition elsewhere, it was completely crushed where the furniture had been.

Pleshek poked at the markings with a gloved hand, demonstrating how densely packed the fibers were.

To loosen them up, he grabbed an iron.

“Place a damp towel over the mark and steam it with an iron for 10 to 15 seconds,” Pleshek said.

He made sure to use a heavily dampened towel and didn’t leave the iron on the carpet for more than a few seconds. Pleshek pointed out in the comments that this is an important part of the process.

Especially if the carpet or rug is made of synthetic fibers, using the iron for too long can damage and even melt the fibers.

Then Pleshek used another household item to fluff up the carpet.

“Remove the towel and brush gently with a fork,” he explained, vigorously rubbing the carpet with the tines of the fork.

As if by magic, the indentations were swept away.

“It’s gone!” said Pleshek.

In the comments, many asked if the “ice cube trick” also works.

This popular trick involves sticking ice cubes into the dent and then walking away until they melt.

Once the ice cubes have melted and slowly added moisture to the area, it’s time to fluff up the carpet fibers.

“A couple of ice cubes can also work,” confirms Pleshek.

“You’ll just take a little longer than the iron.”

If you don’t have an iron but have the time, the ice cube method is an expert-recognized alternative.
