4 Simple Tips For Handling Carpet Spills



A Spill On The Carpet!  What’s The Best Way to Pick It Up?

This might be sad for you to hear, but carpets are the one floor type we don’t have a service for, although we do know people that do. Try not to worry, I’d never leave you hanging. That is why I went out and compiled this simple list of things you can do in the event of a spill on your carpet:

  • Try to get as much of the spill soaked up as you can. Time is a factor here. Use paper towels and BLOT the area to absorb as much liquid as possible.
  • Why BLOT?  This part is very important. BLOT the stain. No rubbing. If you rub, you will very likely spread the stain. No one wants that.
  • Here is the fun part. There are a number of different cleaning agents and solutions you can use to try to eliminate the stain. You get to pick your favorite. However, do yourself a favor and follow the directions on whatever you do choose.
  • Test, test test — ALWAYS test it on a small, out of the way area first. No sense in ruining your carpet in the name of saving a couple of minutes.
  • Rinse with cool water and blot some more.  Be sure there is no residue of the cleaner you used.
  • Blot dry or air dry.

That’s it! Easy, right?
