You never want your carpets to look dirty, dingy and stained. That means that you need to do what you can to keep stains off your carpet. A spill can cause a stain if it is left to sit on the carpets and not treated properly. The biggest problem is that most people don’t know the best way to clean these spills. When people spill they hurry to work on it but could be doing some damage to the stain rather than removing it. Some people start to rub as hard as they can and that can just lead to the stain getting bigger. You could also be damaging the carpet fibers as well. Each spill can mean something different and could need to be treated depending on what was spilled.
GreenCo Air Duct Cleaning Lists Common Carpet Stains & How to Treat Them
Juice & Kool Aid Carpet Stains: Do you have small kids that walk around with a sippy cup? They are not supposed to leak but we all know that they are not fail proof. The leaks will leave small drips of red or blue juice on the carpet. If you have bigger kids the spill can be larger when the whole cup topples over. When you are dealing with a stain from Kool aid you need to know that it has dye in it that could damage the carpets. You need to treat the stain properly while dabbing it with a clean rag. You can use water and dish soap to clean the spot while always blotting and never rubbing the stain. If you are concerned that the stain is not lifting you should call a professional carpet cleaner.
Pet Urine Stains & Odors on Carpets: Pet stains are a huge problem for people all over. Even if your pet only has an occasional accident you may still have a problem. One of the biggest issues is that pet stains have ammonia in it and that is hard to remove. The odor will remain even after the look of the stain is gone. The problem is that the urine will soak in very fast in the carpet fibers, padding and backing. The surface may be cleaned correctly but the odor that remains under the carpet will still be there. You need to have your pet stains treated immediately and cleaned the right way. Baking soda is a great way to get the odor neutralized. A professional company can come out and look for the spots that need to be treated.
Coffee Carpet Stains: When you have a morning cup of coffee and it gets knocked off the counter you may end up with a coffee stain on the carpets. The carpet will have ugly dark stains that need to be treated. One of the most important things that you need to do is to soak up whatever moisture is left over. You can do that with a dry towel and then you are ready to clean it up. You may need to use a vinegar and water mixture to clean the stain up. You want to have the stain treated by a professional to ensure that it is completely removed.
