Keeping Your Carpets Clean Over the Holidays

From cleaning up wine spills to cranberry sauce, there are right ways and wrong ways to attack carpet stains.

Abiding by a few easy to follow tips will make all the difference in the months between having your carpets professionally cleaned.

Step 1. Remove as much dirt and debris by vacuuming the area first. If you have a solid stain, use a puddy knife or the like to separate the offending substance from the carpet fiber. If you have a liquid stain, blot it up.

Step 2. Apply room temperature water to a white microfiber towel, lightly ring out the towel, and then gently blot the stain. Use a dry microfiber towel to go over the area again and blot up the remaining water.

Step 3. Mix about 1/3 teaspoon of Dawn liquid dish soap in a cup of lukewarm water. Use a toothbrush and start to apply the solution to the stain. Start at the edge of the stain and work in a circular motion towards the center of the stain so as to not spread the stain. Do this two or three times, as necessary, without taking care not to over-saturate the carpet.

Step 4. Repeat Step 2. Do not over-saturate the carpet.

Step 5. If the stain is persistent please call us or schedule online and we will be happy to help.

Have a great thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!
