Before you begin any stain removal treatment, it is prudent to take heed of the following tips:

  • Immediately blot up as much of a liquid stain as possible using a soft, white, absorbent material such as a towel or napkin.
  • Scrape away solid or semi-solid stains with a blunt spatula or spoon. Never use a knife as its sharp edges could harm the pile fibers.
  • Vacuum away as much of the solid stain as possible.
  • Pretest the spot removal agent on an inconspicuous area of the carpet. Follow the instructions carefully. Apply a few drops to each color in the carpet/upholstery. Press a clean, white towel or napkin lightly over it for approximately 30 seconds. Check both the towel (or napkin) and the carpet/upholstery for color transfer, color change or any other damage. Try another spot removal agent if you notice any change.

  • After the spill has been removed, rinse out the affected area with water and blot dry to remove the cleaning solution as any residue may attract soil or cause damage to the carpet/upholstery. To effectively blot up the water, you may use clean, white, dry towels weighed down by a flat, heavy object such as a book; keep changing the towel as they become saturated.
  • Last but not least… NEVER OVERWET the area. Overwetting of carpets and upholstery while cleaning may cause damage.
Familiarize yourself with how to treat stains
before they occur by studying our stain removal guide. You'll have the most success if you treat them immediately. Always blot the area to be cleaned. One of the best agents to use on water based spills is vinegar diluted half and half with luke warm water. Keep a bottle handy at room temperature for emergencies. After blotting to remove a spill, dribble, or spray it on; let it set for a moment, then blot again to remove the stain. Always work from the outside of the stain inwards to prevent spreading of the stain.
