Once you create a stain or find one that was left by someone in your home, it may take a few hours or even a day or two before a professional carpet cleaner can come to remove it. Dealing with stains before cleaners arrive may require you to hide them or partially remove them. There are many stain removal methods that you could scroll through, but here are ones that we recommend or how to cover up the stain until our technicians can get there. Stains should not be put off, but we understand that life demands a lot. The best way to effectively remove stains is to schedule a cleaning appointment as soon as possible.
1- Start With Warm Soapy Water
The old tried and true method of soap and warm water is usually the best option for removing stains from the carpet. This is simple and does not involve harmful chemicals that will make you sick or damage carpet fibers. This method can help remove some of the moisture or debris from the surface of your carpet and lighten the stain. If your carpet cleaner is scheduled to come soon, dealing with stains may not be necessary, but if it will be a day or more, soap and hot or warm water is a good place to start.
2- Remember To Blot, Not Scrub
Dealing with stains requires precision. Blotting the stain will help to suck up moisture or contaminants whereas scrubbing can cause the stain to become bigger or seep deeper into the carpet fibers. Use an old towel or one that will not bleed into the carpet (causing more of a stain) to blot up the stain.
3- Cover With An Area Rug
Fully removing a stain may prove difficult. If you are unable to remove the stain or are worried about making the stain worse, you can work to hide the stain until our carpet cleaners can arrive. Dealing with stains before a gathering or an event in your home does not have to be the end of the world. One of the easiest ways to cover up a stain is to place a large area rug over the space. This works great for stains that are in the middle of the room or that other furniture can not conceal.
4- Adjust Furniture
The most common places for stains are near tables, chairs, and couches where we relax or eat. This can make covering the stain just a matter of strategic placement. Dealing with stains in these areas is easier to cover up than those left by pets of children in the middle of hallways or rooms.
Rearrange the furniture slightly to accommodate the stain until the professionals can arrive to remove it.
5- Schedule A Permanent Solution
Placing rugs, moving furniture, or coating a stain in baking soda are not permanent solutions for a stain. You will need to rent a carpet shampooer or contact a professional carpet cleaning company to fully remove the stain. Leaving stains not only makes your home look dirty, but can disrupt the PH balance of your home and cause illness.
