Imagine this: your excited kid is treading around on your new carpet with a drink in hand. As you try to stop her, she accidentally spills it over the carpet. Now the problem is, you have already invited your friends over to your house and this stain, if visible, can be the source of unimaginable embarrassment.
We at Excellence Janitorial Services and Carpet Cleaning understand what you might be feeling at this time and have prepared a list of solutions that can come in very handy in hiding carpet stains until professionals arrive:
Applying Warm Soap Solution
Although this may not completely remove the stain but it can help in reducing its visibility. Take a small piece of cloth, wet it with a soapy solution and apply it to the affected area. However, it must be remembered that this soapy solution must be used sparingly. Too much of it can actually make matters worse and spread the stain to an even larger area. If this is the case, make sure you immediately stop and wait for the professionals to arrive.
Using Vinegar or Baking Powder Solution
Vinegar and baking powder are two of the most efficient home cleaning solutions. Apply the solution to the stain spot on your carpet and put a clean towel over it. Blot out as much as possible, repeat this process while using a dry clean side of the towel. Press firm over the towel. This will make sure that the stains transfer from your carpet to the towel.
Cover Them Up
It’s often been said that the simplest solution is often the best solution. If all your efforts have gone into vain, covering up the stain may be the solution. One of the methods of hiding the stains is to cover them up with a matching rug. The rug effortlessly, and in all its glory, stands tall while hiding all the dirty details inside it without any one ever noticing it.
Another cover-up tactic is to move a piece of furniture over the top of the stain. Tables, chairs and sofas can all be deployed. This will not only give your house a change of look, but will also ensure that the dirty spots remain out of sight.
All of these quick fixes are obviously not permanent solutions. Make sure you hire professional carpet cleaning experts to take care of these stains.
