The 8 Worst Things To Spill On Your Carpet

Anything that spills on your carpet can damage your beautiful carpet. Some things can cause more damage than others. The following is a list of some of the worst things that you can spill on your carpet and what you can do about them.

Blood Stains

Even if you are cautious, mishaps can still happen. If you spill blood on the carpet, then the very first thing that you must do is tend to the injury. After that, you should focus on the stain. Use an enzyme laundry cleaner and water to clean up the stain.

Bleach Stains

Bleach is fantastic for eliminating spots. However, if it gets on your carpet, then it can develop a stain that is hard for you to remove. There really isn’t much you can do if you spill bleach on your carpet. It is best for you to call a professional carpet cleaning company. In the future store your bleach in a location that has tiled flooring.

Red Wine Stains

Red or white wine can trigger a lot of damage to your carpet. Not only can the wine stain your carpet but it is also acidic. If your carpet is light, then the red white wine can cause a lot more damage to your carpet. You must blot the stain with a cloth and pour club soda on it. If this does not work, then you can utilize baking soda and scrub the stain till it disappears.

Chocolate Stains

Chocolate is so tasty that it is tough to think it can be harmful. Nevertheless, you absolutely do not want this on your carpet. Try to clean the chocolate up as soon as possible. It will be a lot harder for you to remove once the chocolate has melted.

Nail Polish

You should avoid doing your nails on the carpeted areas. If you spill nail polish on your carpet, it will be nearly impossible for you to get it out. You will need to call an expert.

Coffee Stains

Coffee is something that many of us can not begin our day without. It has been revealed to cause irreversible damage to your carpet. Even if you spill a small amount of coffee, it can still trigger a lot of damage to your carpet. Expert cleansing will most likely be required to eliminate the spots.

Tomato Stains

Anything red will produce a stain that is tough to get rid of. You will need to get a paper towel and immediately blot the stain. After that, you should use a mild and natural carpet cleaner. You most likely will not have the ability to get rid of the spot entirely. However, you may be able to get rid of most of it. You can always call a professional.

Beer Stains

Beer not only leaves a stain that is difficult to remove, but it can leave behind an odor. You might be able to remove the stain, however the smell will still be there. Beer spots need an expert carpet cleaning.

    Don't have them do your grout. They didn't go against the wall or any edge. While they were here I was going over spots that they missed.

    Very professional, thorough, and courteous. This is the ONLY company we utilize when we have any flooring or furniture cleaning needs. They do an exceptional job and are very cautious while doing their work to take care of and be cautious of the surroundings while doing so. Not just rush in and out and throw a bill at you. Highly recommended.
