A clean carpet keeps and makes the whole room feel brighter and fresher. Unfortunately no carpet, not even the most modern carpet designed to resist stains, is entirely stain proof. Over time, spills and marks are inevitable and we got to deal with them as they happen.

This article touches on the correct way and method to deal with carpet stains and if follow correctly will drastically improve your chances of removing carpet stains when accidents happen.

1. The best chance to remove carpet stains is to attend to them as quickly as possible. Always blot liquid stains with dry, white absorbent cloths or white paper towels. For semi-solids, remove them as much as you can with a spoon before using stain removal procedures to clean off stains.

2. Remember to always follow the basic rule of thumb – Never scrub any stains. Scrubbing will just push the stains deeper into the pile. Always blot with clean, soft towels.

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

4. You may use foaming cleaners to clean your entire upholstery, even though it may state to dry clean only. Visit your local Auto Zone to pick up the auto upholstery and carpet cleaner in the can. Tuff Stuff is one of the best you can get base on my personal experience. Almost all cleaners that come in a can are foaming cleaners, 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, which will make your work a lot easier.

5. Call for professional help if you face a tough stain - If your stain removal efforts fail miserably, or the stain seems too serious to handle, call for professional help unless you want the stain to stay there permanently.

While some common stains can be clean off with the correct tools and procedures. Some tricky or tough stains if not handle properly with the right cleaning produces may “set” stains in making them permanent. This is the time where you need to call for professional help as they have special training, chemicals and equipments to deal with even the toughest stains.

There are many ways to clean carpet stains by using products available in your home which you already use on a regular basis such as detergents, rubbing alcohol, vinegar, lemon juice, and etc. It’s simply a matter of knowing how to use these common household products and most importantly, the correct procedures to clean up the stains. Fortunately, all these information are readily available online and most of them are also free!
