While most of us do a decent job of keeping our floors and carpet clean, all bets are off if you have pets or have invited guests over. Spills are often inevitable, but stains are not. Ace Hardware can help you find the right stain removal products to make these spills just a memory.
Your actions the first few moments after a spill determine how successful you are at carpet stain removal. It’s important to use a cloth or paper towel to pick up and absorb as much of the liquid as possible. Be careful to blot and avoid rubbing the area. Next, apply a stain remover to the location. Many stain removal products require some time to break down the spilled material. Blot the area again or lay an absorbent towel back down. Placing a heavy object over the towel should help the residual material be absorbed. Repeat these steps as necessary.
If the affected location is relatively small, a spot remover should do the trick. However, if the spill covers a large area, consider treating the spill with a carpet shampooer.
