The lingering winter months are finally behind us, but they may have left a distinct reminder on your flooring. Salt used to melt snow and prevent ice buildup can leave stubborn stains that can be difficult to remove. Here we will take a look at simple ways to remove salt stains from your carpeting and flooring.
How to Remove Salt from Flooring
- Warm water
- Distilled white vinegar
- Soft mop
Mix your cleaning solution by combining one cup of vinegar to 3 gallons of warm water.
Pro Tip: You can also add a couple tablespoons of dish soap for extra cleaning power!
Apply the mixture to a soft mop, towel, or cloth and wipe down the floor. You do not want to pour the cleaning mixture directly on the floor. Once you have wiped down the floor, dry the cleaned area immediately.

How to Remove Salt from Carpeting
Prior to cleaning, vacuum the area to remove dirt and dry salt residue.
Using a towel, pat your vinegar and water cleaning mixture onto the carpet to remove the salt stains. You want to be sure you do not scrub roughly but gently pat the affected area. This will ensure the carpeting is not damaged during the cleaning process.
When self-treating your carpeting and flooring, it is advised you read the manufacturer’s maintenance instructions to prevent voiding your warranty.
