Do's and Don’ts in Carpet Cleaning

Carpet cleaning can be challenging. Stains and spots can make it difficult to keep clean. Some of the most common questions we receive as a carpet cleaner in Arlington are: What DIY methods work, which ones don't, how to remove bloodstains, soda, or pet stains?

This list was created because we realized that the best way to answer these questions was to make a list. Here are some guidelines for treating carpet spots and stains.

Here are the Dos and Don'ts for removing stains from the carpet.

1. Blood. If you see blood, immediately wash the area with cold water. Next, mix 2 tablespoons of dishwashing liquid with cold water to create a solution. Oxi-clean, a store-bought solution for bloodstains, also works well.

2. Ink. Apply the ink to a clean cloth. Do not rub too hard. Nail polish remover might also be an option. You can also use nail polish remover to clean a small area.

3. Pet stains and odors. You should first remove or blot as much of the stain from your carpet as possible. Then, you will need to use a special carpet cleaning solution that contains ammonia. This is safe for pets. A solution of warm water and vinegar, followed by baking soda, can be applied to the stain. It is best not to scrub the stain or use a hot steamer to treat it. This will cause the stain to become more stubborn. Remember to get a professional pet urine removal treatment on a regular basis in order to keep dust, pet urine, and stains away for good.

4. Water Soluble stains. Mix 1 cup water with 1 tablespoon ammonia, 5 parts water, and 1 part chlorine bleach to get vomit, chocolate, and wine out. Only use gentle soap and water to clean wool-blend carpet.

5. To freeze wax, oil, fat, and gum, place ice on top of it. After that, use a knife to cut away any remaining pieces. Place a paper towel on top of the oil or wax stain and iron it to stick to the towel.

6. Use a cotton ball to apply rubbing alcohol. You can wipe the glue off with a soft cloth once it is dry.

7. Coffee. Use a mixture of 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup bleach, to absorb the stain. Then rinse the area and dry it. Only use a professional carpet stain-removal company to remove bleach from the carpet.

8. Food, Cola, Dyes, and Alcoholic Beverages.

9. Latex Paint and Washable Ink. You can use 1/4 teaspoon of white vinegar to dissolve 32 ounces of water. Continue this process until the stain is gone.
