February 12, 2020 in Pet Odor and Stain Removal
Soft, clean carpets always feel so inviting. However, at times, you can get tough stains on your carpet that you don’t know how to clean. You don’t want to replace the carpet, which is an expensive proposition. Knowing effective ways of removing carpet stains, especially the tough ones, is a more economical way of dealing with this everyday problem.
Basic Stain Removal
The trick to removing any carpet stain is to act fast. As soon as you spill food items or anything else, be sure to scrape it off right away. For basic stains, you can use a damp cloth or paper towel to remove it. Use plain fabric or paper towels without any colors and press gently into the stain. You may have to try a few times before you get the stain out, so patience is essential.
Removing Wine Stains
Imagine spilling red wine on your carpet. No matter how careful we are, it happens. When this happens, you need to first blot the spill with a damp cloth or paper towel. Try removing as much wine from the carpet as possible. Then you can apply a carpet stain remover. Choose a carpet stain remover that doesn’t affect the color of your carpet. Let the stain remover stand for at least 5 minutes, then blot again with another damp paper towel or cloth. Repeat the process as many times as necessary. Stubborn stains may take a while to go away.
Removing Pet Stains
Pets can be quite cute but may cause headaches as far as your carpets are concerned. Stain and odor are both a problem if your pet potties on your carpet. When this happens, you can blot with a color-safe material to absorb as much moisture as possible. Then you can use a stain remover meant for pet messes. Repeat the process until the stain and smell are both removed.
