Tips to Get Stubborn Stains Out of Your Carpet

Posted By Tubro Carpet Cleaning || 8-May-2015

Spilled ink, red wine, oil, butter, juice, tomato stains, chocolate, pet stains—do these words strike fear in you as a carpet owner? They don’t have to be anymore once you learn some of the tricks of the trades like our team at Tubro Carpet Cleaning may use. While nothing can replace the feeling of a quality, professional deep clean, quickly spot treatment of stains can go a long way and help prevent the stains from setting in and getting worse.

What should I know about stain removal?

Some of the types of stains that we had listed above, contain compounds that work their magic on pristine carpets. The longer the stain sits, the more the stains work their way into the fibers, making it immensely difficult to remove on your own. Have you ever dyed your hair and then were asked to sit for a several minutes to allow it to set? It is the same concept.

Picture this: a plate of spaghetti and tomato sauce at your dinner party comes crashing onto the floor, and that gorgeous carpet of yours forever carries the memory of that fateful night. Not to worry! While this may strike fear that rattles you to the core, we suggest the following options to help you remove any fresh stain.

  1. Do not wait. Remember the hair dye analogy. Once a stain dries, it starts setting, so you must act quickly.
  2. Test all new cleaning products. If you are using a product that you have not used or tried out yet, test it on a patch that is hidden from view, so that you do not accidentally ruin the carpet.
  3. Blot, don’t rub. Use a paper towel, cloth, or rag to pick up the stains. This helps to prevent you from moving the stain deeper in.
  4. Club soda is not just an old-wives’ tale. While there is some mystery behind why club soda works, the fizzy bubbles may have something to do with it.
  5. Try dish soap—a good old standby! This is especially good at fighting grease stains, thanks to the grease-fighting powers.
