Spot Removal Tips
Stains on fabric are as varied as they are pesky and persistent. Each substance will interact in its own unique way with the specific type of fabric it interacts with. Your methods of dealing with stains should be tailored to the specific situation, although there are a few general pointers to follow.
What To Do And What To Avoid
The best advice we can give to you for spot and stain removal is: avoid cleaning chemicals like the plague. They might sound great, and heck, they might even do the job and leave your carpet in great condition. But can you afford to take the risk? It took our technicians many years of training and hands-on experience to gather the knowledge of how each type of fabric reacts to different compounds. If you go down the industrial route, you always risk making things worse.
We're wary of making any general recommendations in terms of which substance you should apply. There are carpets so fragile that even a natural substance might discolor them or otherwise prove to be harmful. However, for the majority of carpets, vinegar and baking soda won't do much damage if used correctly. If you're lucky, they might fix the situation, too.
Before you apply anything, make sure that the area is completely dry. Never try to save time by scrubbing – blotting can be time-consuming, but your carpet will thank you later. Also, lift the carpet and examine how far the liquid went. If there's a stain on the bottom as well, there's a good chance things are out of your hands.
