Smart and Simple Tips to Remove Carpet Stains

Accidents happen. Within the few seconds you leave your little one to busily eat away at their spaghetti dinner, a dollop of greasy tomato and meatball sauce splats onto the floor. Or you accidentally knock your coffee cup off the table, smearing a dark coffee stain on your once clean carpet.

These things can always happen no matter how meticulous you are in avoiding spills. But the last thing you want to do is to let it sit and hope it goes away, as old stains can turn dark in colour and ruin the general look and feel of your home.

For large spills that are particularly greasy, or if you simply don’t have the time to clean out your carpet, hiring professional cleaners is the best option for you. But if you’d like to attempt removing carpet stains for yourself, we’ll go through some handy tips you can use.

Get your carpet back to brand new mint condition through MyHome’s efficient Dry-Touch carpet cleaning service: the unique six-step system not only revives the soft feel of the carpet but gets deep into the fibres to remove trapped dirt and dust that often causes discolouration and nasty odours.

Must-knows on Carpet Stain Removal

The same technique of removing carpet stains (even old stains) applies regardless of whether you use detergent, vinegar, baking soda or any other ingredient. For one, you should first remove any solids like dirt and food before proceeding to get rid of the stain. Also, never scrub at the stained area since the stain may spread to further parts of the carpet. In this case, always work from the outside in, to contain the stain in an isolated area.

  • Use laundry detergent

Place a small amount of laundry detergent (or if you have laundry powder, add hot water until it’s dissolved) on the stain area. Let it sit for up to 10 minutes, and then gently blot the area with a colourfast cloth repeatedly until the old stain fades.

If you’re wondering how to get grease stains out of carpet, using detergent is a quick solution you can try since it’s probably already in your home!

We want to achieve expectations that go above and beyond your picture-perfect vision of a clean home – so if you aren’t satisfied with our carpet cleaning services, we’ll redo the entire job free of charge.

  • Use Vinegar

Vinegar is a natural stain remover you can use for coffee, alcohol, and even greasy stains. Add a few drops of vinegar to a cup of warm water and use a colourfast cloth to start blotting away at the stained area. You may need to change out the cloths so that it picks up as much of the old stain off the floor and prevent it from spreading to other parts of the carpet.

You can follow up by using baking soda or detergent to fade out the smell.

  • Use Baking Soda

Baking soda is another common household item that works wonders in lifting old greasy stains from your carpet, as well as urine or vomit stains since it acts as a sanitizer and gets rid of any lingering odours.

Layer a generous layer of baking soda on your old grease spots and let it sit for around six hours. Vacuum up the baking soda and see how much of the stain has been removed.

Figuring out how to get grease stains off carpet, coffee and alcohol stains, or even tackle old stains you can’t even remember making, there’s always DIY methods you can try out with common household products like detergent, vinegar, and baking soda. If the stain simply won’t budge or you’re unable to clean it yourself, have it handled quickly by MyHome professional cleaning services. You’ll be able to enjoy a carpet floor that’s in mint condition and forget that the stain ever happened!
