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.

    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!!

    I can't recommend Advanced Carpet Care enough. Their work is excellent and the prices are great too. They came with 2 workers, which really speeds things up. They also helped move all my furniture out of the way so they could clean as much carpet as possible. I typically see carpet cleaners just go around obstacles, but these guys actually move stuff so they can be very thorough. After they left, the carpet looked like new and smelled fresh. We've been putting off a carpet cleaning because of the chemicals, but these guys can use non-toxic solutions and still leave you with really clean carpet. If you 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 businesses over a huge corporation.

    Very good work!!! We have carpets that we were ready to tear out they were so bad. Advanced got all the stains out, were quick, and honest. We would recommend this company to everyone. They really know what they are doing! We don't need to get new carpeting anymore! Thank you.
