Nigel Lay our Kettering carpet cleaning expert offers some tips on carpet stains.
The Cleaning Doctor passes some good tips on what to do when you have that accident on your carpet.
So you are somewhere in the Kettering area and you have a disaster on your carpet.
What to do?
It can be tempting to do the cleaning ourselves but this can cause more problems than cures, it is worth using a professional the value is well worth it. It's not as expensive as you may think and it will be much better than having to replace a carpet if we don't do it properly.
Nigel has put together a quick carpet stain removal guide to help quickly.
Red Wine, tea or coffee etc.
If the area is still wet then use a dry white towel and place over the affected area to blot as much of the spill into the towel. When no further transfer is made into the towel, then use another white towel, wet it in warm water and wring until any excess water has been removed, Then fold it a few times and place over the affected area and place a weight on top to allow any further staining to wick up into the towel.
Milk is a bit different so as above but ensure that you do not overwet the area as this will allow the contamination to spread and make removal and treatment for the odours much more difficult.
We do have pets and children so these can be messy and unpleasant!
Firstly remove excess solids by using a spatula to lift as much solid waste as possible. Using a rolled damp white towel slowly brush over the affected area working from the outside of the stain to the centre. Any transfer will be visible on the towel and should be repeated until no further soiling is being transferred into the towel. Then use another white towel, wet it in warm water and wring until any excess water has been removed, then fold it a few times and place over the affected area and place a weight on top to allow any further staining to wick up into the towel.
There is also a good Spot Cleaning Guide.
This covers many types of spots that seem to get on to our carpets, have a look in the pdf downloads on the page.
