Everybody, at one time or another has spilled something on a light-coloured carpet and had the following thought – how on earth am I going to get this out? Accidents happen, and not just with dogs, kids, but adults make messes too. It is important to know how to clean up some of the most common stains on your carpet without having to throw in the towel. If you have nice carpet in your North Shore home that happens to have a wine or coffee stain on it, there are some simple ways to clean up, and possibly even remove, the stains.
You may think it is the end of the world if you’ve spilled red wine on your new carpet, but don’t stress if you find yourself in this situation, as there is a way out of this mess. Your first step is to dab a white cloth into a detergent solution and press on the stain lightly. Let it stand for about 15 minutes and then soak everything else up with a dry white cloth. Repeat the same process again only this time use vinegar. You will also need to wait another 15 minutes and then rinse using a cloth soaked in warm water. After you’ve completed this practice your carpet will be as good as new!
The art of multi-tasking can lead to lots of coffee stains, whether it is on the sofa or on the carpet. When on the carpet, you will need to spray detergent on the stain and dab it with a white cloth. You will do the same thing you did with the wine stain but without the 15-minute increments between each spot treatment.
Before you try any kind of treatment on your carpet it is very important to know what type of fibres that your carpet is made of. If you are not sure, you may want to call a local dealer in carpet for Northern Beaches and have them come take a look at the material of your carpet. You do not want to put anything on your flooring that will harm it or cause even more damage to it.
Wine and coffee are just two of the most common liquids that are spilled on carpets everywhere. So for all you coffee and wine drinkers, it’s good to know that there is a way out and you do not have to worry about your brand new carpet in your North Shore home getting ruined for life.
