Rug Stain Removal
Cleaning Rugs for Long Life
Red wine, dog stains, spaghetti sauce…rug stain removal is something you are sure to have to deal with. Let's face it; cleaning rugs is just a part of life. Rug stain removal doesn't have to be a chore! Before you choose your rug stain removal technique consider the following:
- What is the rug made of?
- How long has the stain been there?
- What kind of stain is it?
- How big is the stain?
- If it's from a liquid, did it go through to the padding?
Once you have determined what kind of stain it is and the product you can safely use to clean your rug, rug stain removal can begin.
Rug Stain Removal Tips
First, if the rug stain is solid, carefully scoop it up with a spoon, being careful to get as much up without rubbing. Dilute any stain with a small amount of water. Do not saturate the rug as it can leak through to the padding. Use a paper towel to blot or brush away the stain. DO NOT RUB. Rug stain removal should begin at the outer edge of the spill or stain, carefully blotting inward to the middle. This will help you avoid spreading the stain and will help prevent a ring caused from solvents. If you choose a rug stain removal product, test it first on a hidden area of your rug to make sure it won't further damage your rug.
Cleaning Rugs – Let a Professional Do It
Sometimes it is best to let a professional do the cleaning. Usually this will result in a deeper and more effective rug cleaning. To save money, interchange between doing it yourself and hiring a professional. Be sure not to over shampoo, over wet or leave your furniture unprotected from wet rugs when you do it yourself. And, if a spill does occur, try and begin rug stain removal as soon as possible, and follow up with a professional cleaning.
