Carpet Cleaning in Red Wing, MN by ServiceMaster Commercial and Residential Cleaning Solutions

Some of the toughest stains to get out of carpets are organic ones – those produced by naturally occurring pigments or containing acidic human or animal organics. In either case, the stain is easier to remove if carpet “first aid” is provided as soon as possible. Being a first responder when someone spills a glass of red wine or when your pet has an accident will mean a better outcome in the long run for your carpet and the effectiveness of future carpet cleaning. If you can’t respond quickly, respond efficiently by hiring a professional carpet cleaning company in Red Wing like ServiceMaster Commercial and Residential Solutions to remove stains and soil from your carpeting.

Any liquid originating from grapes or tomatoes can be especially difficult. Wine, grape juice, tomato juice, catsup, tomato sauce are liquids you want to remove as quickly as possible. In almost all cases you should absorb the liquid into paper towels or absorbent clean cloth. Blot the stain to lift it away. Don’t rub or you’ll be driving the pigmentation and organics further into the fibers. In many cases it also helps to dilute the stain by spraying it with water and then blotting the solution. You’re actually slowing or stopping the chemical reaction that’s begun.

You may have to cope with blood on a carpet. Always dilute it with cold water first and then try to absorb it. For pet urine stains, you may carefully try a combination of dilute hydrogen peroxide and then dish soap and water – or water, soap and vinegar. You’re cleaning but also trying to neutralize the ammonia in the urine. For that reason it’s always good to finish with baking soda on the stain.

If you’re not a do-it-yourself person, or fear making a bad stain even worse or permanent, call a professional carpet cleaning service. They’ll be able to clean, treat, sanitize and deodorize your entire carpet, leaving it looking and smelling like new.
