Eliminate Tough Stains from Carpets & Furniture!
Spilling a drink onto your carpet or upholstery can be a disaster, especially if it’s hot coffee, tea or chocolate. Scalding hot liquid easily breaks through the protective layer on brand new carpets and fabric. Difficult stains, such as red wine and other colour added substances can be very difficult to remove from your carpet and upholstery. How to remove stains is something we are often asked. For most stains and spills, the first thing you do is the most important in determining the end result.
So don’t panic and grab the first carpet cleaning product you see, if in doubt it might be wise to leave the stain removal to Carpet Wizzard as many of the over the counter products do more harm than good. They contain bleach and other chemicals which can damage your expensive carpet and may leave bleach marks. They also leave residue which attracts the dirt.
Advice on Stain Removal from our Specialists
Firstly, try to remove as much of the spill as possible, so use a clean white cloth or towel to soak up any spilled liquid and scrape off any solids
For most liquid and food stains (excluding ink or oil based stains) use a clean damp cloth to gently dab the stain, do not rub or use pressure. Once you see colour transfer from the stain on to the cloth, replace with another clean damp cloth and gently keep dabbing the stain and changing your cloth until you have removed as much of the stain as possible
The best course of action depends on what caused the stain
Do not use any product containing bleach
Time is also important, as the longer the stain is left on the carpet the harder it is to remove
