Spot Treatment Secrets
By Carpet Beaters in Orange County
Remove the spot as fast as you can. The longer a spot sits, the more likely it is to become permanent.
Use a wet vacuum to extract all liquids or moisture in the spot BEFORE using your spot remover.
Remove it NOW. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to remove. If you cannot remove the stain, call a professional right away.
DON'T USE Resolve or other high residue products on your area rugs. Use a neutral ph spotting agent that is made for wool. Call us for purchase information.
Use as little moisture as possible with silk, sisal, cotton, and grass rugs. For these, apply a spotter to a cloth and gently dab the stain.
Some area rugs have a very unstable dye and can be easily ruined. Always pre-test any solution on the rug before attempting spot removal.
Most spots: Use our Spray and Wipe Cleaner or mix 1/4 teaspoon clear hand dishwashing soap with 1 cup water and follow the directions above. Avoid high residue spotters such as Resolve.
Grease or Oils: For greasy spots, apply rubbing alcohol to a cloth and gently dab the spot. Never pour a solvent directly on your carpet.
Wax: Melt the wax unto a paper bag with a steam iron. Place the paper bag over the wax. Do not allow the iron to directly touch the carpet.
