Carpet Stains – The Basics


There are a few steps if taken right away that will prevent carpet stains from remaining in your carpet. Here is a four step process:



Remove any solid dirt or debris



Any loose particles that you can see should be vacuumed or picked up first, it’s always a good idea to wear gloves if you are picking up stuff off the floor. If you just dropped a hamburger on the floor, pick up the meat, lettuce, cheese and the bun might be easy but what about the mustard and ketchup that are left behind.


Blot the Carpet Stains



Start the cleaning process with blotting the carpet stain with clean and dry cloths, paper towel also works well. Start from the outside and work towards the middle, blotting but not rubbing or grinding the stain further into the fibers.



Choose a Cleaning Solution



There are several carpet stain removal products on the market and there are also household products that work great for carpet stains. The first thing you should do is test the solution that you choose on a area of the carpet that is out of sight. If you carpet doesn’t have any changes in color then you can proceed with cleaning the carpet stains.



Get rid of the Carpet Stains



Similar to step two, you blot the carpet stains but this time you add your cleaning solution first. Work your way around the stain from the outside in. It is very important not to rub the stain, this will cause the stain to be forced deeper into the carpet fibers making it harder to clean. Now rinse the area that you just cleaned and see if that removed the carpet stains. If not you will have to repeat step four until the stain is fully removed.
