General Carpet Stain Removal Tips
Carpet Care 2000 extends customer service to our commercial and residential customers by including a spot removal guide in the event your carpets are besmirched with potential stains.
Before You Start: When treating any stain, there are a few basics that are important to remember to contain the stain and make removal easier.
– Work the outer perimeter of the stains and come towards the center, blotting as you go. Do not scrub or rub as you on work the stain deeper into the fibers and spread it out.
– Dyes and print can potentially transfer onto carpet while you are trying to remove a stain, leaving you with more issues. Only use white cloths, towels, or paper towels to treat spots to avoid this.
– Never skip the patch test by applying a small amount of the solution; no matter if it is household remedy or a commercial formulate carpet cleaner.
– Avoid hot water to treat stains as that can set the stain into the carpet, and never over saturate.
Carpet Spot & Stain Removal Guide
Special Water-Soluble Stains – These spots are more complex and require a little more power. Special water-soluble stains such as; blood, chocolate, coffee, mustard, tea, vomit, and wine are a few examples. Combine 1 Tbsp ammonia and 1 cup water to remove the stains. Keep in mind carpet manufactured out of wool or wool blends should substitute the water with a mild instead.
Water-Soluble Stains – Water-soluble stains are a bit simpler to remove. Examples of water-soluble stains are: alcoholic beverages, berries, colas, excrement, food, dyes, gravy, ice cream, jelly, milk, mud, washable ink, and wet or latex paint. A simplistic formula of ¼ tsp non-bleach detergent or white vinegar, mixed well in 32 ounces of water can treat the majority of water-soluble stains.
Fat, Oil, and Wax Stains – These stains can be removed from carpet easily with the use of towels and an iron. Flip the iron on a “warm” setting; don’t use hot as that can singe the carpet. Place a paper towel over the top of the stain, and then the iron with slight pressure to pull the stain up. Coming right off your carpet; the fat, oil, and wax will absorb into the paper towel with ease.
Cigarette Burns – Scrape the pile with a dull knife by gently rubbing off the blemish caused by a mild scorch from a cigarette.
Glue Spills – Gently work the alcohol into the stains by applying rubbing alcohol onto a cotton ball or cloth and sponge it on the glue. Wipe away the residue with a clean, dry cloth and repeat until the glue is completely dissolved.
Gum and Sticky Candy Stains – With a spoon, or another blunt object, shatter the stain after you place 1 or multiple ice cubes on the gum and candy until it is frozen. Pick up the fragments and vacuum the tiny shavings.
Nail Polish Spills – Apply a generous amount of nail polish removal on a rag and work the polish out. You may have to multiple rags if the polish is excessive.
Urine Stains – Absorb excess liquid with a paper towel or dry rag; it may take more than one depending on the size of the puddle. Using pressure, blot the remaining stain with a damp cloth. Mix together one part water and one part white vinegar mixed in a spray bottle and spray the solution onto the stain and allow it to set. Combine ½ tsp of clear, mild, non-bleach detergent with 32 ounces of water and sponge that solution on top of the previous application. Blot the treated area with moderate pressure and a dry rag.
