Removing Stains And Spills

If something gets spilled on to your carpet, prompt action is required to prevent staining.

Prokleen Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning
Specialists recommend having the following items and solutions to hand for dealing with spillages as soon as possible:

• Clean white absorbent cloth or towel
• Dry Cleaning Solution - Surgical Spirit
• Detergent Solution - One teaspoonful of gentle detergent for washing woollens, to half a pint of warm water
• Detergent Vinegar Solution - Add one teaspoonful of white (not malt) vinegar to the Detergent Solution
• Ammonia Solution - One teaspoonful of branded household Ammonia to one cup of warm water

General Tips

• Do not over wet into backing materials
• Always test any solution/detergent on an inconspicuous area of carpet prior to treating a stain
• Use detergents at recommended dilution ratios
• Scrape up or blot up any excess prior to treatment
• Blot, never rub or scrub
• Do not use inappropriate detergents on carpets or upholstery i.e. (washing up liquid, wash powders, household bleach, disinfectants)
• Always work from the outside of the stain inward to avoid spreading
• Always apply the cleaning fluid to the absorbent spotting material not directly onto the carpet or fabric
• Encourage quick drying (carefully use a hairdryer on mild heat to assist)
• Deal with stains as quickly as possible for increased chances of success
• Keep the fabric or carpet as dry as possible.

Final Rinse Procedure (always use this method after removing any of the above stains)

• Mix one-part white vinegar and four-parts water
• Pour mixture into a spray bottle and spray over the stained area
• Blot dampened area (do not rub) to remove excess moisture
• Spread white kitchen towel (stacked 6-8 sheets deep) or absorbent cloth over the affected area and place a weight, such as a telephone directory, on top
• Leave overnight and repeat if necessary

Unfortunately, there can never be a guarantee of complete removal of a stain, but the correct routine will give your professional carpet cleaner
, when called in, the best possible chance of success.
