Rug Cleaners in Victoria BC: How To Remove Stains From Area Rugs


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.

"Russ cleaned our Carpets in our home this past week. They look fantastic. What a wonderful job. Thanks Russ."   Norm M, Langford BC

"We had our rugs cleaned by Russ in December and were very pleased at how clean they came and how they stayed clean much longer than when we used to rent a shampooer and do it ourselves. I've recommended Russ and I'm ready to book him again!" Susan D, Victoria BC

“Great customer care skills and excellent results. I would highly recommend Russ if anyone is looking to get those carpets cleaned.” Lee C.

“Russ Sheriff with Victoria Carpet Care is professional, incredibly knowledgeable, honest, and he truly cares about his clients and their needs. He has taken carpet care to a whole new level and goes above and beyond.  I recently had him clean the carpets when my tenants moved out and he really was put to the test, and he left the room looking brand new. He also used a special odor guard to get rid of some horrible smells and it is amazing how well it worked.  Big or small, carpets, rugs, upholstery, beds, you name it, Russ Sheriff with Victoria Carpet Care can do it all, and do it well. I highly recommend them.” Clare M, Victoria BC
