Nobody likes a dirty home, and especially not us.  That is why we got in the Carpet Cleaning business to start with. In this article, we will discuss 4 Tips for How to get Spot & Stains out of your Carpet in Hoover, AL.  You do not have to keeping looking at those spots!!!!! 

Tip #1: Act Quickly - The first and most important thing you can do to avoid spots and stains is to act quickly.  Most newer carpets have already been treated with some sort of solution such as scotch-guard in order to resist stains.  If you take immediate action, you can easily remove most spots, stains or spills.  The longer you delay, the greater the chance that the spill or stain will set in and be more difficult to remove.

Tip #2: Blot!!!! Don’t Rub!!!! - Blot up as much liquid as possible with paper towels or an absorbent white cloth.  One thing you should not want to do is Rub hard or Scrub.  Scrubbing can rub the spot further into the carpet.  The objective with blotting is to pick up as much of the stain as possible before it sets in.

Tip #3: Apply Water - After blotting up as much as possible, you can use a damp cloth or wet a paper towel and gently blot the stain.  Again, do not Rub or Scrub.  You would be surprised that plain old water will get out lots of stains.

Tip #4: Apply Carpet Spot Remover Spray – Always pretest the solution, by applying a couple dots of the spray cleaner to an inconspicuous area of carpet.  (Note: Many Oxy sprays can bleach carpet, so you need to be careful especially if your carpet is a darker shade.) Hold a white cloth on the wet area for 10 seconds.  Examine the carpet and cloth for color transfer, color change, or damage to the carpet. If a change occurs, do not use that solution.  Try another cleaning solution.
