Red Wine Spill on Carpet in Torquay, Exeter & Devon

Dealing with a carpet spill or carpet stain:

  1. Act Quick!  Grab a clean cloth and dab or blot the spill to pick up the excess.
  2. Never rub as you can damage the carpet fibres.
  3. Work inwards to stop it from spreading.
  4. Test stain-removal products on an inconspicuous area first.
  5. Never use hot water as it can set colours making a stain like red wine very difficult to get out.
  6. Immediate treatment – If you have no stain removal products to hand, a dab of vodka or gin is one of the safest products that you can try.
  7. Red Wine –  use soda water to flush it from the carpet fibres.
  8. Wet cloth – If you don’t want to tackle the stain yourself, cover the area with an old, damp towel or cloth.  This will help keep the stain workable until your carpet cleaning expert arrives.
