Common Carpet Stains And Tips For Blotting Them Up Before They Set In

No matter what steps we take to keep our carpets clean, stains and grime are sometimes unavoidable. Even with the toughest stains, from red wine to candle wax, there’s hope for the longevity of your carpet. With some quick thinking and the right techniques and solutions, you can remove some of the most stubborn stains. Here are some tips on removing common carpet stains.

Liquid Stains: When it comes to liquids, whether it’s blood, ink, wine, soda, or beer, there are a few at-home solutions to try before calling the professional cleaners. You always want to start with the mildest solution possible—cold water. Try not to use cloths or paper towels that are colored to prevent color transfer. Always remember to blot, not rub, the stain.

If cold water doesn’t do the trick, then try a mild water and dish soap solution or a combination of water and vinegar. If you use any cleaning solutions or sprays on the stain, then always rinse with plain water afterward to remove any remaining chemical residue from your carpet.

Dry StainsDry stains can be caused by anything from dried mud to cereal and coffee grounds. First, vacuum the loose particles. Failing to remove the substance can cause a major stain, grinding the particles deep into the carpet fiber. After vacuuming, assess the carpet to see if a stain remains. If so, then use the above methods for liquid stains to remove the stain from the carpet. The same basic methods are effective for many types of stains.
