    Tips on Removing Carpet Stain

    We have put together a list of our top 5 carpet stain remover tips to keep your carpet clean and maintain its quality over time.

    Carpet is more important than we give it credit for. It is often responsible for creating the clean welcoming space, critical to first client impressions. Premium carpet can be an expensive investment, so like any investment, it makes sense to take care of it.

    Tip 1: How to Remove Gum from Carpet

    1.  Place some ice blocks in a zip-lock bag.
    2.  Place the bag directly onto the gum stain for a few minutes to harden the gum.
    3.  Gently scrape the gum from the carpet using a dull knife or scraping tool.
    4.  Sponge the remainder of the stain directly with detergent.

    If there is still gum left over, try the following:

    – Combine soapy water and white wine vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray solution onto the area and rub until gum is removed.

    – Softly blot the gum with an oil such as olive or peanut oil. This will make the gum less sticky and easier to remove. Use a dull non sharp knife to remove completely.

    Tip 2: How to Remove Stubborn Stains from Carpet

    1.  Combine 1/4 cup of white vinegar,1 tablespoon of dish liquid soap and water in a spray-bottle.
    2.  Spray stained area liberally, letting the solution soak for 5-10 minutes.
    3.  Softly blot the area with a clean, dry towel until the stain is removed.

    Tip 3: How to Remove Coffee Stains from Carpet

    1.  Soak up as much of the coffee as you can with a clean cloth or paper towel.
    2.  Combine one tablespoon of liquid dish soap, one tablespoon of white vinegar and two cups of warm water in a bowl.
    3.  Apply a small amount of the mixture to a clean cloth.
    4.  Softly dab the sponge onto the affected area, blotting frequently until the stain disappears.

    Tip 4: How to Remove Permanent Marker from Carpet

    1.  Moisten the ink stain with either rubbing alcohol or non-oily hairspray.
    2.  Lightly blot the stain from the carpet (the colour should transfer onto the towel.)
    3.  Once the stain is removed, dip a towel in warm water and press lightly over the area to remove any excess ink from carpet-fibres.

    Tip 5: How to Remove Nail Polish from Carpet

    1.  Remove any excess spillage by pressing gently with a paper towel.
    2.  Gently scrape as much of the dry nail polish as you can out of the carpet with a dull knife or utensil.
    3.  Apply a small amount of non-oily nail polish remover/ rubbing alcohol to a cloth and blot the stain until removed.
