The first steps to cleanup any spill on your carpet is blotting. Blotting up a spill using a clean towel and applying cleaning solutions is the best way to prevent a spill from becoming a permanent stain on your carpet. You need to work from the outer edge first and slowly to the center of the affected area. Make sure you keep the absorbent towel clean by sumerging it in hot water. If there are solids gently scrape it up with the edge of a spoon table.
As long as you are getting the color of the spill on your towel you kow you are making progress. Don’t stop until you are not getting any more color transfer to your terry towel. Keep in mind that you should never rub a spill as this will make it spread even more and make the stain harder to remove.
Many carpet cleaning professionals recommend to first identify the source of the stain before attend to remove it. A friend of mine who provide professional carpet cleaning in valrico fl for over 10 years, says that different stains require different cleaning procedures. You should always pretest in an inconspicuous space any cleaning solution you are going to use, if you notice any color running out of the fibers or bleaching out you should stop intermediately. Don’t over wet the affected area with the cleaning solution.
You can damage your carpet very easily if you use bleach on a spot or any alkaline all-purpose spray cleaners, you should never use these to remove stains. If you are not sure what cleaning solution to use or if you are affraid you’ll damage your carpet, you should call a carpet cleaning professional.
After you’ve cleaned up and rinsed as best as possible, get some clean towels and place them on the spot with something heavy to put weight on top of it, like a glass or ceramic dish. This will work as a sponge and help draw out even more of the spot.
