WHEN SPILLS HAPPEN

Today’s stain-resistant fabrics make treating spills much easier. Still, no carpet is 100% resistant. The key is to act QUICKLY:

Step 1 – Absorb the Spill

  • Blot spot with a dry white absorbent cloth, or plain white paper towel. A coloured material may transfer ink or dye to your carpet). Continue blotting until the area is damp. Semi-solids like food may need to be scooped up with a spoon. Dry, solid bits can be vacuumed.
  • Do not scrub or use a brush. Bristles and elbow grease can cause fraying and texture change.

Step 2 – Treat the Stain

  • Use one of these cleaners approved by the Carpet and Rug Institute. Though any of these listed have been laboratory tested, you should still test them first on a scrap of carpet or in an out-of-sight place.
  • Follow the product’s directions carefully, and remember more is not better. Apply a small amount of the cleaner to a white cloth, and work in gently from the edges to the center. Blot; don’t scrub! You may need to do this several times to remove the spot. Once gone, blot the area with clear water to remove any remaining product.
