With day-to-day living, our carpets/rugs are bound to get stained from time-to-time. Here’s some handy whatvacuum.com advice to help remove those dreaded stains.
Red wine is one of the worst offenders. A glass of red wine spilt accidentally on your carpet can ruin the best of parties and spoil your living room. That red wine stain can be permanent. Getting rid of it can be very difficult, leaving you with a headache of a different kind! If spilt drink is allowed to soak into the fibres your carpet can be damaged. Carpet fibres become stained, right through to the back of the carpet. If left, the stain becomes almost impossible to clean and remove. Surface cleaning fluids and quick-fix spot and stain sprays won’t always work effectively.
Before treating any stain firstly:
The Carpet Foundation recommends giving spills immediate attention. The longer a red wine spillage is left the harder its removal becomes.
Regular cleaning of your carpet is a must, helping to prolong the carpet’s life – and beauty.
Keep a small stain removal kit readily to hand for prompt use when required – white tissues, household towels, small brush, spoon, sponge and a good cleaning solution.
