Carpet is a great addition to any home; it provides comfort, softness and a durable floor surface to any room. Carpet comes in all shades, patterns, lengths and colors, making it easy to match the interior of your home and make it look just the way you want it to. Carpet makes it easy to relax in front of the television on your floor, is pet friendly and great for toddlers learning to take their first steps. Carpet often times falls victim to certain types of spills and other accidents that if not properly cared for will end up leaving an unsightly stain on your floor.
Common Carpet Stains
Some of the most common carpet stains are the result of food spills, pet accidents and dirt or grime being tracked in from the outdoors. Any food that has a dark color to it is more likely to leave a stain on your carpet. Spaghetti sauce, red wine and other dark colored food will leave difficult stains on your carpet and if not immediately cleaned up, will penetrate your carpet fibers, making the stain quite permanent. Pets sometimes have accidents, and most homeowners are great at quickly taking care of the mess, however some pets are sneaky and will have an accident in an area that is not often seen by occupants of the home and it will not be discovered until a stain has formed. High traffic areas often fall victim to a dull gray or black stain that is tracked in from foot traffic. These grime and dirt stains can affect the color, texture and all around quality of your carpet.
Carpet Stain Removal Home Remedies
There are some home remedies that are tested and most commonly fail when it comes to completely removing a carpet stain. There are some effective steps that you can take after a spill or accident occurs that may help in reducing the chances of a stain remaining on your carpet flooring. First, always blot the affected area with a dry towel. Never rub the spill or accident, as this will cause the spill to sink even more deeply into your carpet and be difficult to remove. This could also lead to saturation of the carpet pad, which often results in a permanent sour smell in your home. A mild mixture of soap and water is the safest thing to use on a stain.
