Dealing with Spills & Stains

Liquids

When a liquid is spilled on your carpet, soak it up with a clean towel by blotting the affected area. It is essential that you do this very quickly so as to not allow the substance too much time to work its way into the fibers and stain the carpet. 

After the initial liquid has been removed, spot clean the area with a little laundry detergent and lukewarm water or a mixture of one part water and one part vinegar. When in doubt, check your carpet manufacturer's recommendations for how to address spills and stains.

Solids

When a solid is spilled, wipe up the spill and vacuum the affected area. 

If a stain persists, be sure to check your manufacturer guide for approved products you can use on your carpet.

Pre-TEst

It is always best to pre-test your cleaning method to avoid long-term damage. Consult your manufacturer recommendations for cleaning spills and approved stain-removers. Test on old t-shirts or towels before applying the mixture to the carpet. 

Daily carpet care is important

By vacuuming your carpet every day or couple of days you can help to ensure that your new flooring always looks its best. Set up a vacuuming routine and stick with it to prolong the beauty of your carpet.
