Carpet Stains that are the Absolute Worst
The last thing anyone wants is a carpet stain. Sometimes you get them off by scrubbing just the stained part. At other time you have to wash the entire carpet because the stain just keeps spreading. There are times the stain seems indelible. You just cannot get it off you’re carpet. It’s very upsetting. Let’s see a list of carpet stains that are absolute worst and things you can do about them.
1. Coffee Stains
I love me so coffee in the mornings. Wakes me up and keeps me up. But I sure do not want it on my carpet. If you happen to spill some coffee on your carpet don’t try using detergent. You may damage it further. In a case like this, it is better you employ the services of a professional cleaner.
2. Nail Polish Stains
Terrible! First off I’ll like to ask everyone to please avoid painting your nails on your carpets. Nail polish stains are almost impossible to get out of your carpets. If you’re dealing with this kind of stain, it is best to employ the services of a professional cleaner.
If you still want to attempt it yourself, read how we suggest you handle tough stains like this.
3. Blood Stains
I don’t want to ask how the blood got there. Let’s just say you cut yourself, and you bled onto the carpet. First off, tend to your wound, get it cleaned and covered. Then let’s talk about the blood stains. You may wipe it up first. Then, you can use any laundry detergent and some water to completely wipe it off your carpet. Easy right?
4. Red Wine Stains
Toasting to your promotion at work or to your engagement? Whatever the occasion, if you get red wine on your carpet, you have to act fast. It’s important because apart from the apparent stains, red wine can be acidic and may begin to damage your carpet. You can begin by using a cloth to blot the stain and then pour some club soda. Or, you may choose to use baking soda. All you need to do is scrub until the stain disappears.
5. Chocolate Stains
Chocolates should be in our mouths and not on our carpets. But if that happens, it’s best to wipe it off quickly before it melts. This is important because it’s easy to just pick hard chocolate from your carpet without it leaving any stains than when it’s melted into the carpet.
6. Tomato Stains
You could get a paper towel to blot the stain immediately. Then you use a carpet cleaner and try to remove it as much as you can. You may not succeed. Don’t fret. Just contact a professional cleaner.
7. Beer Stain
This actually comes with two problems, the stain and the smell. While the stain removal may not pose a problem, the stain definitely does. So you need the help of a professional to help with the smell.
