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. 🙂 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 it’s 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 job your men did on cleaning our carpet last week! This was the first time I tried your company and I was thoroughly impressed. Your men came in and asked if there were any stains that they needed to pre-treat. They gave special attention to those areas, getting them to look just like new!I had a very positive customer experience with Advanced Carpet Care. I found them to be customer friendly and enjoyable to work with. They were flexible and accommodating to my schedule and willing to move most items to clean under furniture.Thank you!A Google User6/26/2017
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 againCraig S1/21/2020
I have been using Gary and the guys at Advanced Carpet Cleaning for over 20 years now and just wanted to say Thanks so much for a fantastic job once again! I had a couple of spills this time that I never thought would come out. Of course, Gary got them out and the carpets look great! Gary and his team are friendly, efficient and always do a wonderful job! I would highly recommend them!A Google User6/26/2018
Gary literally came to my rescue!! Another cleaner cancelled on me on the morning of the scheduled cleaning and I had to do a walk-through with our landlord that same day. I called Advanced, spoke to Gary and he squeezed me into his schedule. He arrived when he said he would, and the carpets were cleaned in plenty of time to do the walk-through. Gary did an amazing job!! The carpets came cleaner than I expected them to, and he even helped me out with a couple of spots on the linoleum in the kitchen without my asking! I will definitely use Advanced in the future and will highly recommend them to anyone!A Google User6/26/2018
I recently contacted Gary at Advanced Carpet Cleaning to get my living room and hallway cleaned before putting the house up for sale. Gary was excellent to deal with and the crew that came to my house was very respectful professional. The carpets look great and I was very impressed with the level of professionalism by the company. Appointment time was made with ease and the communication before and after was great. I received a follow-up phone call from Gary on a Saturday checking to see how the service was. I will definitely be using this service in the future and recommend them to anyone looking for service!!A Google User .6/26/2018
