STOP!!….DON’T PANIC……YOUR ACTIONS WILL LIKELY DETERMINE THE SUCCESSFUL REMOVAL OF CARPET STAINS.
The first steps you take in responding to a spill or stain on your carpet will largely determine the likelihood of whether the stain becomes permanent or can be removed. The wrong approach can permanently set the staining properties. Remember a stain doesn’t just involve what is on top but also includes the amount it can bleed into the fabric of the flooring and/or the padding.
Because not all staining solutions are the same like pet stain removal, pet urine removal, carpet stains and carpet fibers (nylon, polypropolene, wool) have different reactions to staining solutions, there is no single approach that works for all stains. Diablo Carpet and Floor Restoration has over 20 years of experience in bringing your flooring back to life.
Generally, when you have a carpet spill or resulting stain, we recommend removing the excess solution by blotting the spill/stain with a while cotton towel or paper towel, and using a spatula to remove any surface material. DO NOT scrub the fiber with a brush or towel.
