How to Remove Common Halloween Related Carpet Stains

If you notice new stains on your carpet caused by Halloween treats, Lehigh Cleanpro in Lehigh Valley can help you remove them with these simple tips.

Remove Chocolate From Your Carpet

The weeks leading up to Halloween and the weeks after are full of treats and goodies. While these are delicious, when they end up in your carpet they may lose some of their appeal. If your child has dropped some of their favorite fun size chocolate bar on your carpet, it's not the end of your carpet's clean existence. If the chocolate has melted and is still gooey, use a spoon to carefully scoop up as much as possible. Do your best to avoid causing the stain to spread as you do this. If the chocolate has melted into your carpet and has dried, use a dull knife to scrape up as much of the excess as possible. Once you've removed the excess, you'll likely be left with a stain. Get a cup of warm water.  Using a clean washcloth, blot the warm cloth onto the stain. Work your way from the outside of the stain to the center.  Repeat this until you are satisfied with the condition of your carpet. Blot the area dry and ensure the spot has completely dried before allowing anyone to step over it.

What to Do When You Find Gum in Your Carpet

Finding gum stuck in your carpet may seem like an impossible task to clean up. Don't fret, taking care of this may not be as hard as you think. Remove the excess gum with your fingers.  Carefully do this in order to ensure you don't damage your carpet's fibers. Once you've removed the excess gum, then go online and purchase a bottle of a product called OOPS!  Use sparingly, and this should remove the gum stain permanently.  If you want a professional, call Lehigh Cleanpro to do the job, as we have a 100% money back guarantee when it comes to removing gum stains, no matter how long it’s been there or what kind of gum it is!Don't put off getting your carpet professionally cleaned any longer.

Don't forget to ask about their Cleanpro Carpet Cleaning System and how it can benefit your carpet.

Get Rid of Candle Wax in Your Carpet

Since candles are so popular this season, finding a bit of spilled wax in your carpet may not be so far fetched. Luckily, removing it is relatively easy. Allow the candle wax to dry before starting to remove it. Working with it while it's still runny may cause the stain to spread further and deeper into your carpet. Once the wax is hard, grab a dry, clean washcloth and your iron. Set the iron on a low setting and be sure you are not using the steam setting. Place the washcloth over the wax and slowly run the iron over it. This will help the wax heat up and will cause the stain to transfer onto the washcloth. After giving it a couple of passes, check the stain to see how much has transferred. If there is still wax left in your carpet, grab another clean washcloth and go through the process again until all of the wax is gone.

Remove Pesky Pumpkin Stains

Carving pumpkins is one of the most popular activities leading up to Halloween night. To avoid getting pumpkin stains in your carpet, it's best to do this activity outdoors. If this isn't possible, do your best to avoid doing it over your carpet. Even if you're careful, you may still find some pumpkin remnants in your carpet. Whether you find seeds or pulp in your carpet, very carefully remove them. Since both of these substances are quite slippery, you want to do your best to not drop them again and cause another stain. If there is a stain left where you found the remnants, simply treat it with warm water. Blot the cloth onto the stain using a circular motion until stain is gone. Always allow the area to dry before stepping on the area.
