How To Remove Stains From Area Rugs: Carpet Cleaning, Victoria BC


Stain Removal Process

Since children, pets and accident-prone adults often are the biggest hazards to a rug, it’s good to know the best ways to promptly and safely remove all types of spills and stains.

Take these tips to keep your rugs looking great:

1.Promptly blot liquid spills, scrape solid spills and vacuum dry spills. Many liquid spills can be completely removed with just blotting. Important tip: Never rub or scrub a stain and always move from the outer edges toward the middle.

2.Before you use any solution on your carpet, test it on a hidden spot, like under a chair or in a corner. Apply several drops of solution to the carpet and blot with a white cloth for 10 seconds. If no color or fiber damage is apparent, it's safe to proceed.

3.Apply the recommended cleaning solution to a cloth, then to the carpet or, if necessary, apply sparingly to the carpet. Work from the outside of the stain in, gently blotting and lifting the stain out with a clean cloth. Avoid rubbing. Turn and change the cloth frequently.

4.Next, spritz the area lightly with water to rinse. Avoid over wetting the carpet, because excess water will seep into the padding and can damage the carpet.

5.Blot again with a clean cloth. Cover the stain with paper towels and weight them down with a heavy object. Leave overnight so the paper towels will absorb any remaining stain. Fluff up the pile and allow it to dry thoroughly.

6.Repeat if necessary. Many stains take time to respond to a cleaning formula and may even need a second treatment.
