Let’s admit it; we take our carpet for granted when it comes to stains. Stains on the floor or under our feet are not as visible as the ones on the walls that seem stare at our face, or on the ones our clothes that we are always conscious of.
You really shouldn’t leave carpet stains alone. The more you step on them the deeper you are driving them into the material.
It’s easy to get rid of the other stains. Did you stain your wall? Its hard material, you can use solvents and solutions freely. Or you can just paint over it. Problem solved. Did you stain your clothes? Soak it a bit, with a fabric-friendly solution if want. Throw it into the washing machine and watch the stain disappear. Problem solved.
Did you stain your carpet? It’s part cloth so it might not respond well to certain solvents. It might be part cloth but it’s still too big to fit in the washing machine. Wait, can you even move it in the first place? Isn’t it permanently stuck to the floor?
Common Carpet Stains
Liquid Stains – Are you having friends come over to watch a game? Serve beer. Are your kids’ friends coming over for a visit? Serve soda. Do you want some alone time? Drink wine. In all likelihood a little of that beer, soda or wine has spilled on the carpet at one occasion or another.
It’s not just colored liquid that leaves stains, even water can leave marks after it has evaporated.
Food Stains – Food is supposed to go into the mouth and not in the carpet, but we all know this isn’t always the case. Considering how people love to eat in front of the TV it’s probably safe to say any carpet that has seen many years of services has also received its share of food from time to time.
If you have not cleaned that carpet in a while you can expect to find bread crumbs, potato chip crumbs, pizza sauce, barbecue sauce and cereal bits among others.
Pet Pee/Poo Stains – We love our pets, but we don’t love the things they leave behind in the carpet whether it’s the liquid product, the solid product, or worse, the semi-sold and semi-liquid product.
Their leavings are sure to make stains. Pet pee has a lot of chemicals in it that can remain even as the water evaporates. Do you really want to know what’s in pet poo?
Cleaning stains on a carpet can be a difficult job. That trouble goes double if you’ve put off cleaning the stain for a very long time and the stain has seeped into the carpet.
