Let’s talk carpets and stains. It’s inevitable that at some point, you’re going to end up with a carpet stain on your new floor.

Here are some quick tips to help you get rid of that stain and get back to enjoying your home.

If it’s a liquid stain, as soon as the spill occurs blot it up with a clean cloth. Rubbing the liquid in can push it down further and into the carpet pad resulting in a stain that can be harder to remove. Add water to the area and continue to blot until your cloth comes away clean. It may take some time but once you’re done no one will ever notice anything amiss.

If something solid spills onto your carpet, remove the solid mass or it its dried, break it up and remove it. Then add water and blot as above.

You should always go with water first as a stain remover and then move onto carpet cleaners. There are many spray cleaners on the market but always try them first in a hidden corner to be sure they don’t discolor your carpet.

There you have it. The quick guide to carpet stain removal.  The steps above will get rid of the most stains before they become permanent. And remember, it’s often recommended by carpet professionals to have your carpet professionally steam cleaned a couple of times a year. The small investment will pay off in a longer life for your carpet and more enjoyment of your mobile home.
