The 3 Worst Carpet Stains

Have you ever had a stain on your carpet? What was it from and how did you clean it? Do you know that you can use home-made stain removers instead of commercial ones? Do you know which are the 3 worst carpet stains that you might face in your place? Read on to learn the answers of the last two questions.

People prefer to use commercial carpet cleaners when they have to remove a discolouration from their flooring. But with a toxic influence so high, nowadays, we must find another way for cleaning because store detergents also contain chemicals. That is why most deep cleaning services providers recommend the use of home-made cleaning solutions, especially when you have to remove stains from your rugs. The most popular carpet stain remover is the vinegar/water solution. It is used for removing almost all kinds of spots. But which are the three worst carpet discolourations?

Dog vomit stains – depending on what you feed your dog with, these spots can be really stubborn and disgusting. You have to remove the excess vomit first, rinse with water, and apply the vinegar/water solution with a spray bottle afterwards. When you apply it you have to blot with paper towels. Mind that you might have to repeat the procedure several times until the stain fades.

Cat urine stains – the most important thing about these discolourations according to Cleaner London, is not to treat them with ammonia-based solutions. Cat urine also contains ammonia, and it is the ingredient that shows the animals where the toilet is. So, when such spots happen, blot as much of the excess liquid as you can with paper towels, rinse with cold water, and apply the vinegar/water solution. Blot with paper towels again, and repeat the procedure as many times as needed. Rinse with cold water in the end. Once the area is dry, deodorise it with a mixture of baking soda and potpourri.

Red wine stains – these discolourations are quite popular. They are some of the most commonly met in every house. The good thing about them is that you can clean them either with a vinegar/water solution, or with white wine. Blot the excess liquid first, and pour some of the solution over the spot blotting again with a clean towel. Repeat the procedure until you remove the spot, rinse with cold water, leave it to dry, and deodorise with baking soda.

So, be careful with the above stains and when they happen clean them as soon and fast as possible. If you doubt that you’ll manage to remove any of them from your carpet on your own, don’t hesitate to use the services of a professional carpet cleaner London. There are a lot of them in the British capital and they all know how to deal with stubborn discolourations.
