How to treat spots and spills on your rug

May 20, 2015

rug cleaning and spot cleaning

The following is general procedures for the removal of spots and stains on rugs and carpets in your home:  Scrape any solid matter up with a dull blade like a butter knife.  Soak up any liquid with paper towels pressed over the spill, beginning at the edge and working toward the center.  Do not rub, this will cause spreading.  Sponge lightly  with a weak solution of slightly warm water and dishwashing detergent, 1/4 teaspoon per quart of water, just lightly sudsy.  Blot with towels.  Rinse by sponging in a cold water and distilled vinegar mixture (1 tsp. white vinegar to a cup of water).  Blot up the rinsed area with more paper towels under pressure.  If the foundation of the rug has been saturated, lift the area off the floor for drying, using a fan if the area is large.  Work quickly and do not heavily soak the stained area.  Restore direction of the pile before area dries completely by grooming with a soft brush.

Give us a call if the rug or carpet stain is still apparent after drying or the pile is badly distorted.

Please don't hesitate to call,
