Top 3 tips for getting stains out of carpets

stain removal from carpet with steam

Stains are the main rival of a beautiful carpet. It is common for people to get worried about how to get rid of a certain stain and whether or not their cleaning method will ruin their carpet further. Old stains, as well as stains that have a “red” appearance, are normally the hardest to get rid of. So, the sooner you get onto cleaning the stain, the better the chance you have of removing it. Common types of stains include pet urine, wine, coffee, blood, ink and oils.

So, what type of carpet cleaning equipment is best? If you don’t have a steam vapour cleaning machine that produces high temperature steam, several homemade carpet stain removers can also be of benefit. Treatments should be different depending on the nature of stains.
