Spot and Stain Removal:
-Clean up spills promptly.
-Blot the spot. DO NOT RUB!
-Wet spills should be soaked up with a white towel or paper towel.
-After the liquid is removed use a warm towel on nylon carpet to blot the stain until there is no further residue being transfered onto the towel. For wool carpet, blot the stain with a cold towel.
-If the stain is still not completely removed, see the cleaning charts below for further stain removal.
-Solids spills (ex. food), should be lifted off of the carpet fibers before any cleaning is done. A large spoon is useful to lift the substance from the fibers. See the cleaning charts below for further stain removal.
-Always work from the outside perimeter of the stain towards the center to prevent spreading of the stain.
-For overall cleaning we recommend a dry cleaning method such as Host© or Capture©.
Helpful hints to get the most life from your carpeting:
-Place glides under heavy furniture and rotate furniture periodically if possible to avoid crushing.
-Close blinds during direct sunlight hours to avoid fading.
-Traffic patterns where possible should be changed periodically by rearranging furniture placements.
-Doormats inside and out can minimize tracking of dirt.
-Vacuum often and use deodorizer on pet accident areas. Often, animals are drawn to the smell and will repeat actions in a specific area if not deodorized.
-Cigarette and other burns can be sometimes hidden by snipping off the affected areas and then cleaned.
-Regular vacuuming is the most important method for extendig the life of your carpet.
-Do not panic at the onset of a spill and use different cleaning methods, blot the stain and then see the cleaning charts.
