No matter how careful you are, it’s likely that at some point you will spill something on your carpeting, perhaps during a dinner party or a craft activity. Have no fear, because Colonial Cleanpro in Petersburgis here to offer you some stain-busting solutions.

Never Scrub a Carpet Stain

No matter what the stain consists of make sure to never scrub it, as this will simply work whatever substance is on your carpet further into the fibres and even the padding beneath. Instead, blot or dab the stain with a clean cloth.

Removing Red Wine Stains

If red wine comes into contact with your carpet, fetch a clean cloth immediately and dab at the spillage to remove the excess wine. Once this has been done, you can apply a specialized carpet cleaner or clothing stain remover. If you don’t have either of these to hand, however, you can use baking soda. Apply a little water and then cover the stained area with baking soda. Allow the baking soda to dry, and then vacuum it up. Be sure to thoroughly dry the carpet to avoid mold developing!

Fat, Oil and Wax

If any of these should happen to land on your carpet, blot with a clean cloth. Then cover the affected area with a paper towel and iron it, making sure to set your iron to its ‘warm’ setting. This should transfer the substance from your carpet fibres to the paper towel.

Glue Residue

Cover a cotton ball or a very soft cloth in rubbing alcohol and blot the affected area. This should loosen up and remove the glue residue. After this has been done, clean the affected area by dabbing with a clean cloth and a little water, and then drying thoroughly.
