Tips for Carpet Spots & Stains

If spot is wet, blot it, don’t rub. Rubbing will spread the soil.

If spot is dry, loosen soil and vacuum away.

Rinse cleaned area thoroughly. If cleaning product not removed it may cause the cleaned area to attract soil.  Many detergents are dirt magnets!

When removing stains, always use a white cloth.

When a spill happens take care of it right away.  You will have much better chance of removing them.

When using any cleaner, dilute according to directions. A mixture that is too potent may cause damage to your carpet.

Always pre-test the area to be cleaned. Apply cleaning solution to an inconspicuous area of the same material. If, after 5 minutes, the material’s color transfers to towel, try using another product.

A mild mineral spirit solution is useful for many household cleaning applications.

For wax dropped on carpet or upholstery, set a clean, absorbent cloth over the wax stain and hold a hot iron on it. Lift cloth away and the wax should be removed with the cloth.

Not every stain can be removed at home or removed period.   Call TCM Restoration & Cleaning  and we can help.
