Removing the 3 Toughest Stains from Your Floors with Tips from the Carpet Cleaning Professionals in Denver, CO

Don't steam your carpets, clean your carpets!

Carpets are an integral piece of your home: they provide comfort, warmth, style, and more. Not only that, but you surely invest some time and money in keeping them spotless, which is why it's very painful when you realize that they've been stained with one of the most stubborn substances around. If this has happened to you recently, worry not. Here we'll share a few tips on how you can clean your carpeting, even after it's been affected by some of the most relentless stains.

How to Get Rid of Red Wine Stains on Your Flooring 

Red wine is often the drink of choice for fancy dinners with friends, or nights of relaxation around the house. What's not fancy or relaxing, however, is having a big, deep red stain of wine on your precious carpeted floors! To make matters worse, red wine produces a very stubborn stain that won't go out easily. For a few tips on how you can win in this fight over your carpeting, read through the ones mentioned below.

  1. First and foremost, act quickly, unless you want to work extra hard, or risk having to stare at a red spot on your carpeting forever. This means that you should drop everything, get your cleaning supplies, and start working on the stain immediately. To clean red wine, you'll need paper towels, cloths, a spray bottle, cool water, vinegar, warm water, and dishwashing soap.
  2. The next step is to grab a few paper towels and start working on getting the excess wine off your carpeting. To that end, blot the area repeatedly but be very careful, as rubbing the stain or pressing on it too hard can actually make it expand or penetrate further into your carpet. Continue blotting the affected area until you've gotten most of the wine out.
  3. Then, you'll need to create a magic potion to clean the stained spot, consisting of a mixture of warm water, vinegar, and dishwashing soap. If you want, you can pour it all into a spray bottle to handle it more easily. After that, apply some of it onto the stain and let it act on it for a few minutes. Once again, take a piece of cloth and dab the area until the stain is gone (consider that you'll have to go over this step a few times over to lift the stain completely). When you no longer see the stain on your carpeting, you can wash the residue off with a bit of cool water.
  4. Then, it's time to help your carpeting dry thoroughly. First of all, grab a piece of cloth and work on absorbing as much water as you can. After that, ventilate the room effectively (to help the process move along, you can use fans, the AC, or open windows and doors in the room). Remember to only use the previously affected area until it's completely dry, so as to not ruin the process.

Cleaning Off Mustard's Stubborn, Yellow Stains from Your Carpeting

Mustard is a strong but delicious condiment that can provide the extra flavor you need on your hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches, and more. However, its bright yellow seasoning won't only spice up your life by eating it: if you find it on your carpeted floors, you can bet that you'll feel its bite but in another level. Still, if you would like to make it disappear so your floors are flawless once again, here's how you can do it with carpet cleaning in Denver:

  1. As mentioned in the previous tutorial, you'll want to work on the area fast and effectively so you can be successful at making your carpeting spotless without as much effort. To that end, have the necessary cleaning tools ready to be used: a spoon, paper towels, club soda, warm water, dishwashing soap, a spray bottle, and cool water.

  2. Next up, use the spoon to scrape off the excess mustard on your carpets. When you do, you must pay attention so you don't accidentally end up spreading the mustard even more. That's why you should work from the outer edges of the stain into the center of it. Once again, do not scrub the substance, or you'll create a bigger mess!

  3. Then, take a bit of club soda and pour it over the stain. Let it work on the spot for a few minutes and start blotting the stained area on your carpeted floors with a clean towel, cloth, or papel towel. Continue to do this so you lift as much of the mustard as possible.

  4. If after you worked through the last step a few times over, you can still see yellow spots on your floor that aren't supposed to be there, it's time to make a magic potion once more. This time, mix warm water and dishwashing soap into the spray bottle. Then, spray the stain generously, and wait for a few minutes so the mixture can work its magic on the mustard. Again, take a cloth and dab the area gently to clean it to the best of your abilities. To get rid of the soap and other residues, wash your carpeting off with some cool water (don't go overboard to avoid soaking the fibers).

  5. If you want to prevent having a mold problem at home after this incident, allow your carpeting to dry effectively. Blot the excess moisture out with a towel (you can use a vacuum as well if you have one that will work with water), and let air flow through the room so it can accelerate the drying process.

How to Lift Coffee Spots Off Your Carpeted Floors

To some people, coffee is a necessity that helps them wake up in the morning and get their day started with their best foot forward. Nonetheless, coffee stains on your carpet is something that nobody needs, ever. Still, if during your drowsy walk through your home, you have stumbled and accidentally spilled some of that dark liquid onto your floors, don't panic just yet. This next tutorial will help you give that tough stain a run for their money.

  1. Finally, make sure to dry your carpet (if you don't, it will stay humid, which creates the perfect environment for mold to develop in). To that end, use a clean towel to absorb some of the water. After you've gotten as much as you can, turn on the fans in the room, and open your windows and doors, so air can help the carpeting dry faster.

  2. As you know, you should react fast and appropriately, which is why, in this case, you should have the following supplies by your side: white shaving cream, warm water, dishwashing soap, vinegar, a spray bottle, cool water, and clean cloths.

  3. First of all, you want to get rid of as much of the excess coffee as you can before it sinks into the padding, or dries up. That's why your first instinct should be to get a piece of clean, dry cloth, and start patting the area to remove some of the excess coffee. Once more, we remind you not to scrub the affected area as this will only help the stain grow.

  4. For the next step, you'll have to mix up the vinegar, warm water, and dishwashing soap. If you want, you can use a spray bottle to make the application of the mixture much easier. After you've sprayed it, allow it to work on breaking down the stain for a few minutes before blotting it off with a clean, dry cloth. You may need to go through this step more than once to clean as much as the stain as possible.

  5. If the step above isn't doing much to debilitate coffee's great staining power, take the white shaving cream and apply it directly on the spot. Make sure to give it time so it can lift off the stain, and use another clean cloth to dab the area. If the stain has dried already, you can rub it a bit to get it off your carpet's fibers. Once you have conquered the stain, rinse the product off with cool water.
