Basic Guide To Carpet Spot Removal

Aug 23, 2008
Anyone who has experience with carpet knows the types of accidents that can happen. Carpet is very common with most houses these days, making the risk for accidents and spills higher than ever. No matter what the spill may be, mud, blood, or milk there are ways to clean everything.

At your local department store or grocery store, there are several products that you can pick up that will work great. The only problem with these products is the fact that they are normally very vague with how you should use them.

The first thing you should know is that if you have a red stain on your carpet, you shouldn't try to get this out yourself, but instead leave it to a pro. There are certain procedures and very effective methods that your local carpet cleaning company can do to save you from ruining your carpet.

Keep in mind that red is the toughest stain to get out. A professional carpet cleaner is the way to go, as he is properly trained and equipped to handle them.

For everything else, there is always an effective and cheap way to clean spots on both your carpet and the upholstery. If you are only buying the products that work for you, then you aren't paying much attention to the label or the technique in getting the stains out.

The first thing to do is go to your local Auto Zone or auto parts store and pick up the auto upholstery and carpet cleaner in the can. Tuff Stuff is one of the best you can get. Almost all cleaners that come in a can are foaming cleaners, which will make your work a lot easier.

The foam in these canned cleaners will penetrate the fibers upon contact and as it foams, it will release and suspend the stains and soils. You may need to lightly scrub the areas with a towel or soft bristled brush.

To help you clean the spots, the tips below may come in handy:

1. You should only use white rags or towels when you clean carpet and upholstery to reduce the risk of ruining colors or color transfer.

2. You should use foaming cleaners to clean your entire upholstery, even though it may state to dry clean only.

3. You should always test your product of choice first on a hidden area to save yourself heartache and embarrassment in case things don't turn out the way you hope.

4. If you need the help of a professional, you shouldn't hesitate to contact one.

As long as you don't have a red stain in the carpet, you shouldn't have any problems getting
it out. Stains and spots are a carpet's worst enemy, which is why you should always get them out as soon as you can - to prevent things from getting any worse.
