However much you’d like to keep your carpet spotless for eternity, it’s pretty likely that you’ll have to deal with a stain or two at some point, especially over the holidays as people indulge in rich foods and the red wine flows. Luckily, Lehigh Cleanpro is here to offer a few hints on how to deal with stains.

Be prepared

Having some cleaning supplies handy is crucial if you’re going to deal with stains quickly and effectively. Make sure you have some clean cloths and cleaning solution ready in a kitchen cabinet or other easily-reached place. Making your own cleaning solution is a good way to make sure you’re using safe, environmentally-friendly products (store-bought cleaners are often full of harsh chemicals). Try mixing equal parts white vinegar and water for a simple solution.

Act fast

A prompt response to a spill is crucial even if your carpet has been treated with a stain-repellant. These treatments help avoid stains becoming permanent, but they’re no substitute for cleaning. 

Cleaning a stain

Scoop up any solids (if someone has spilled food, for example) and dispose of them. Blot up any excess liquid with a clean cloth. Blot the stain from the outside in so as to avoid spreading it further, and make sure to never scrub or scrape at a stain as this will only work it deeper into your carpet’s fibers. Apply cleaning solution to your cloth and then apply that to the stain rather than spraying the solution directly onto your carpet.If you haven’t used a cleaning product or homemade solution before, make sure to test it on a small, inconspicuous piece of carpet to make sure it doesn’t damage it.

A stain is one obvious sign that your carpet needs cleaning, but be sure to read our guide to the other indicators.

If you need a helping hand to get rid of a particularly stubborn stain, you can rely on Lehigh Cleanpro to provide the best carpet cleaning in the Lehigh Valley. Call (610) 739-3317 to find out how we can help.
