Carpet stains…they are bound to happen. No matter how much you try to avoid it or prevent it, that saucy meatball from last night’s dinner or that orange juice from breakfast will somehow find its way to your carpet. Although we are the go-to carpet cleaning pros, you don’t have to call us every single time you notice a stain a on you rug or carpet. Instead, you can attack them yourself. Here are a few tricks and tips that we recommend trying for your stain lifting abilities to be effective.
- Clean the stain immediately.: As soon as you notice the unwanted stain on your carpet, take action right then and there. The longer the stain is there, the longer it has to set.
- Instead of scrubbing, blot.: What you are aiming to do is absorb as much of the liquid as possible into the sponge or cloth. this helps to decrease the size and help prevent the stain from spreading.
- Use a minimal amount of product.: This helps to decrease drying time and makes it more likely for another stain to be the result.
- Make sure to completely dry it.: Take a dry towel and bot the stain once your cleaned it. The more moisture in the carpet, the more likely chance mold will form. You can even try using a hair dryer to speed up the drying process.
If you do each of these steps, the stain should lift with no problem. But when you find yourself with that stain that just won’t come out, Carpet Service Express is here for you. Give us a call at (817) 498-1207.
