We frequently get calls from customers who have spilled or dropped something which has resulted in their carpet being stained or spilled. How best to remove carpet stains depends on their type for instance red wine and pet urine is often easier that lipstick or ink from printer cartridges. Whilst you can nip down to your local supermarket in Torbay or Exeter and purchase an off the shelf stain remover we would urge caution!
Many of these products contain bleach which if applied to a carpet will bleach the colour of the carpet creating its own mark – once bleached we cannot restore a carpet. If you want to use a shop bought product of any kind make sure you do a carpet patch test somewhere inconspicuous.
There are many other household products that can help you deal with stains. Check out our list below but if you’re not sure how to deal with a stain give us a call and get some free advice first on 0800 018 5550.
