Accidents are inevitable, no matter how cautious you are, there is always a moment or we can say a glitch in our carefulness that causes accidents. It is always easier said than done like it’s hard to hold yourself back when the accident is a spillage on your new carpet or upholstery.
But worry not as we have compiled a list of tips and tricks for you to make the stain go away from your precious upholstery. Just remember is that immediate action is the key instead of delaying, hence at the outset just grab a piece of cloth preferably a towel or a microfiber cloth, and dab it onto the stain to absorb the maximum amount of liquid into the cloth. But do avoid scrubbing the stain as it essentially sets in the stain into the spot.
Once the stain is all soaked up in the cloth, then it is time to gather up your arsenal to lift the remaining part of the stain and restore the carpet to its former glory.
Tips and tricks mentioned below to clean up stains have been categorized based on different stain types.
Cleaning Soda Stains From Carpet
Removing Soda or cola stains from the carpet is quite an easy task as all you need is a blend of vinegar and water. Just use vinegar in moderation as any excess amount can do more damage than any good. As a general rule of thumb, you can use about half a teaspoon of vinegar for every 32 ounces of water. This blend is not only helpful in removing soda stains but can also be applied to stains of tea, alcohol, ice cream, etc.
Cleaning Out Blood Stains from the Carpet
Cleaning out some stains is rather a tough job and maybe not as simple as removing soda stains. For removing blood stains, you may have to replace vinegar with ammonia. Just acknowledge that anything you apply to your carpet will always leave some amount of residue.
Remove Wax from the Carpet
Removing wax can be such a hassle due to its stickiness and elasticity. Further, the trouble manifolds once the wax hardens. But worry not, we have a foolproof tip that works to lift off wax stains from the carpet in a jiffy. All you need is a hot iron (not too hot rather warm) and a few paper towels. Just place the paper towels on top of the wax stains and then put the warm iron on the paper towels. The warm iron will loosen up the wax and paper towels will absorb the wax. But be careful when using iron as high temperature might just burn up your carpet.
Remove Pet Stains and Odors from Carpet
Pet are such cuties, but often become a nuisance, especially when you have to clean up their stains from the carpet. To clean up pet stains, “Elite carpet-dry cleaning expert” suggest investing in a special pet enzyme cleaner. The enzyme cleaner usually comes with a set of instructions on how to use it, printed on the bottle. But generally, you can use the cleaner like everything else i.e. by blotting the stains with the cleaner and avoid scrubbing. However, carpets made with natural material or with a dye job require special cleaning needs. Hence, in that case it is vital to consult a “professional carpet-dry cleaning experts” in case of any doubts and to prolong the life of the carpet.
Be sure to follow the carpet stain remover instructions, and be wary of using too much cleaner. An excess of cleaner is difficult to remove and can attract dirt in the future.
