Tips for Removing Carpet Stains

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Carpet stains always occur at holiday gatherings. To successfully remove them, follow these steps:

1. ACT FAST

The more time a stain stays on the carpet, the more it chemically reacts with it and it will be harder to remove. 

 

2. DON'T RUB

Rubbing will permanently break down the carpet fibers. Always blot by starting at the outside edge of the stain and work toward the center. 

 

3. FIND THE RIGHT SOLUTION

Using the wrong stain remover can cause a lot more damage. For best solutions always check trusted resources such as Good Housekeeping, Martha Stewart, Consumer Reports, Coit carpet cleaning. No matter what solution you decide to use, always test it in a not-so-visible area first (in the corner behind dresser or in the closet, if carpeted).

Nice tips Iva. I had all kinds of problems with carpet stains when my kids were younger. However I NEVER got to them before they dried. They weren't very forth-coming with their spills. I've got beautiful hardwoods now.  Now my problem are with my dogs that aren't very forthcoming either when they scratch up the floor, LOL!

Stains need to be acted on right away.  Once dried it may be to late.
