Holiday Carpet Cleaning Tips

Are you getting ready for the holidays? These carpet cleaning tips will likely help you out soon!

Making Christmas Cleanup Easier

Your #1 rule this season will be to clean up any spills right when they happen. The longer you wait the worse the cleanup will be and the more likely to stain.

You are most likely to have some spills this during Christmas time. Even if you take precautions and warn all of your guests not to spill. ­čÖé Especially if kids are coming over.

Make it a habit to clean up messes right away. Christmas cleanup will be so much easier and less expensive.

The Dreaded Chocolate Stain!

Are you going to be opening up a box of chocolates near carpeting this year? Chocolate stains are very common this is what to do:

Step 1: Scrape it off gently. Do your best not to spread it or press it into the carpet fibers.

Step 2: Use some carbonated water with a cloth to gently dab the area.

Step 3: Next is more dabbing. Use another cloth, warm water with dish soap. Gently dab and then wait 1 hour.

Step 4: Use cold water and a clean cloth to make passes across the area.

This should get the stain out. Repeat the steps until you see results.

Bright Bright Red Cranberry Sauce Stains

Cranberry sauce consistency is sticky and when cleaning sticky remember not to spread it! Here’s how to clean it:

Step 1: Don’t press it! Lift off the cranberry sauce using a spoon.

As with chocolate you should dab a cloth and carbonated water on the area. You can also dab with dish soap and cool water like with chocolate. Dabbing is the key.

Step 3: If the spill is on a couch cushion.

Mix 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol and 1 tsp of white vinegar. Dab it gently onto the stain. Wait 15 min and then gently blot it dry.

Turkey & Grease Stains (Oil-Based Stains)

Remember our #1 rule? We need to act quickly with oil based stains.

Step 1: Dab the area with paper towels gently. Continue until it doesn’t look like you are soaking anything else up.

Step 2: Sprinkle the area with either baby powder or corn starch. Wait 10 minutes and then vaccum it up!

Step 3: If itÔÇÖs still not coming out all the way, spray the area with a carpet cleaning product like Spot Shot. Wait 10 minutes and then use paper towels to dab.

  • Great experience cleaning my carpets. Quick and efficient and did a fantastic job cleaning. They were able to remove a couple stains that were stubborn when we tried to remove them ourselves. Will definitely hire them again

    My wife and I bought a house that smelled like dog, the previous owner had 3 dogs that must have spent all of their time in the living room. I was worried that we'd have to replace the carpet but Advanced Carpet Care was able to get the dog smell out 100%. We couldn't be more happy, very pleased.

    I canÔÇÖt recommend Advanced Carpet Care enough. Their work is excellent and the prices are great too. They came with 2 men, which speeds things up. They also moved all my furniture out of the way so they could clean all the carpet. I typically have seen other companies just go around obstacles but these guys actually move stuff so they can be thorough. After they left, the carpets looked like new and smelled fresh.We have been putting off carpet cleaning because of the chemicals, but these guys use GREEN non-toxic solutions and they still leave you with really clean carpets! If they need a little more cleaning power they can use a mild detergent that is still very earth friendly.Lastly, they are a local business, and I prefer giving my money to the smaller service-minded business over a large corporation.
