FREE Carpet Cleaning Advice and Tips

 
1. What to do when a stain or spillage occurs?
 
Act quickly! scrape up solids. Blot up liquids, taking plenty of time. It is worth the effort. Mix the solution accurately. Test it on an out of the way piece of carpet. Always work from the outer edge of the stain to the center of the stain. NEVER OVER WET. Dab rather than scrub, or rub hard. Even though you may not completely remove the stain, the correct routine will give your professional carpet cleaner, when called, the best possible chance of complete success. Once you have taken followed these simple steps we would recommend taking advantage of a FREE Carpet Survey & Test we will be able to test effected area and in most cases apply a pre treatment, we can also provide you with a quotation.
 
2. What solution is best to remove stains?
 
For a Dry Cleaning Solution use Surgical Spirit. For a Detergent Solution add one teaspoonful of gentle detergent for washing woolens to half a pint (0.75 litres) of warm clean water. Detergent and Vinegar Solution - add one tablespoonful of white (not malt) vinegar to the Detergent Solution. Ammonia Solution - add one teaspoonful of branded household ammonia (available from hardware stores), to one cup of warm clean water.
 
3. What stains can be removed effectively?
 
WHAT: Alcohol, Coffee, Tea, Liquid Foods and Urine.
HOW: Use Detergent and Vinegar Solution (see above). Work from the outer edge of the stain inwards, using a little at a time, blotting up with dry cloths frequently. See below for rinse procedure.
 
WHAT: Chocolate, Sweets, Blood, Glue, Egg, Ice Cream, Milk, Soft Drinks and Vomit.
HOW: Scrape up excess with a blunt knife. Use a Detergent Solution (see above) starting at the outer edge. Blot dry. Follow up with an Ammonia Solution (see above). Blot dry. See below for rinse procedure.
 
WHAT: Solids, Fats, Tar, Chewing Gum, Oil, Ointment and Shoe Polish.
HOW: Scrape up excess with a blunt knife. Use a Dry Cleaning Solution followed by Detergent and Vinegar. Blot dry. See below for rinse procedure.
 
WHAT: Unknown stains
HOW: Scrape up or blot surplus spillage. Use a Dry Cleaning Solvent (see above) followed by clean luke warm water. Blot dry. If further treatment is required, use either Detergent or Vinegar and Detergent Solution (see above). Blot dry. See below for rinse procedure.
 
Final Rinse Procedure
This rinse procedure is applicable to all the above methods of stain removal from carpets. Simply mix one-part white vinegar and four-parts water. Pour mixture into a spray bottle and spray over the stained area. Blot dampened area (do not rub) to remove excess moisture. Spread white kitchen towel (stacked 6-8 sheets deep) over the affected area and place a weight such as a book, directly on top. This will help moisture residue to soak into the towels. Leave overnight and repeat if required.
 
Note: some new carpets have been subjected to anti-static and soil-resistant treatments. Even when these have been applied, it is wise to follow the stain removal procedures suggested above.
