In meantime, before our experienced team arrives at your location, here are a few useful tips for managing carpet stains.
-Conceal the stains. A quick solution is to simply hide the stains with furniture, potted plants or seasonal decorations. Naturally, a lot of stains are going to be around tables and dining areas, so it may just call for moving over a couch or coffee table a couple inches to cover them up.
-Try spot-treating your carpets. You may discover that it’s possible to at least partially remove common stains such as those from spilled coffee, food and foot traffic as a DIY project if you do it early enough. Begin by placing a cloth on the stain and press it down. Be sure to avoid the risk of grinding the stains even farther into the carpet’s fibers. For those stains that are dry already, place a metal spoon in your freezer for about one hour. Next, use the chilled spoons to gently scrape away the stain.
After completing that step, use a spot cleaner on the stain. You’ll want the carpet to be somewhat damp yet not too wet. Allow it sit for ten minutes. Be sure to test the spot cleaner on a carpet scrap first to confirm that it will not cause discoloration. Finally, blot the stains with a clean cloth, working slowly from the outer edges of the stains towards the center. Once the stain is removed, blot it with cold water and use another, dry cloth to soak up the excess water. To avoid the chances of mildew or mold forming, be sure that the area is fully dry.
