At Zerorez professional carpet cleaning we know all about carpeting and how to clean it. That means that we know pretty much everything there is to know about what can make a carpet dirty, including the hardest stains to remove from carpeting. Here are some tough carpet stains and what you can do to manage them until you can get professional carpet cleaning from Zerorez:
Coffee and Tea
Coffee and tea stains are harder to remove once they’ve cooled and settled in. So if you’re lucky enough to be on the spot when the coffee or tea spill happens, take action quickly to keep the stain from setting in. This is especially important if you have light-colored carpeting. Start with a clean, dry towel and blot up as much of the spill as you can; then grab a towel dipped in hot water and gently dab at what’s left of the stain. Never rub any kind of stain into carpeting as this only drives it deeper into the fibers.
Oil and Grease
Oil and grease stains present a different problem than most other types of stains as oil and grease tend to deflect water. This makes attempting to blot them up with just a damp cloth fairly useless. The best thing to do, after cleaning up as much as possible of the stain with a dry towel, is to dip a towel in a water and dishwashing detergent solution and blot the oil or grease with it. Choose a dishwashing detergent that is formulated to cut grease.
Wine and Fruit Juice
Wine and fruit juice are essentially the same thing when it comes to staining your carpet. In the case of red wine and red grape juice, they’re both brightly-colored, and they’re both highly acidic, both of which make them a nightmare to clean from any carpeting that is light-colored. As with coffee and tea, cleaning them up quickly is key. The best cleaning method is blotting with a cloth dipped in club soda, though, generally this will only remove some of the stain. Dark wine and fruit juice stains mean you’ll have to call in the pros for help.
It may be impossible to mitigate many of these stains, even with quick action. That’s why you’ll eventually need the help of Zerorez professional carpet cleaning in Henderson, NV. In fact, the best course of action to take if you want clean, spotless rugs all year round is to schedule an appointment twice a year for a deep carpeting cleaning that utilizes Zerorez’s patented Empowered Water™ technology.
