Tips and Guides

For Liquids Spills

  1. Get a wet white cloth such as a tea towel, nappy or paper towel and put the cloth on the stain to try to absorb as much liquid as possible. Keep changing the cloth as soon as you can see the cloth taking in the spillage. Do not rub or scrub the stain. You can apply a small amount of pressure to help absorb more of the spillage.
  2. Ensure that the cloth used is white. Coloured paper towel and towels can cause further dyes to run onto the carpet.
  3. Try to get as much liquid out of the stain as possible. Keep applying new cloths until no more of the spillage can be seen being absorbed into the cloth.
  4. If you are not getting any more of the stain on the cloth, but there is still a stain visible on the carpet, apply a small amount of water to the stain and repeat the process above. Continue the process until no more of the spillage is being absorbed.
  5. If your stain is still visible on the carpet please contact a local Carpet Cleaning professional. Stain removal is a very specialised field of carpet cleaning and many carpet cleaners do not have the skills to carry out processes to rectify carpet stains.

For Solids Spills

  1. If you spill anything solid on your carpet try to scrape off as much excess solids as possible with a blunt knife. Be careful not to damage the carpet fibres by rubbing the carpet. If gentle scraping does not remove excess solids do not continue with this process.
  2. Once the excess solids are removed, use the process described above for liquids to try to get out excess staining.
  3. If your stain is still visible on the carpet please contact a local Carpet Cleaning professional. Stain removal is a very specialised field of carpet cleaning and many carpet cleaners do not have the skills to carry out processes to rectify carpet stains.
