How do I get the smell of dog urine out of my carpet?

Posted By: admin  //  Category: Carpet Stain Removal

I have tried scrubbing the area ( he always pees in my daughters’ toy room) with a bissel carpet shampooer, I’ve used pet odor and stain removal and regular cleaner , but I still cant get the odor out of the room, I’ve also opened the window and tried a fan to air it out, but no luck.

Help Please!!!!!!!!!

Sprinkle some baking soda on the area, let set for a few minutes and then vacuum. If it still smells, then try using your carpet cleaner again. But, if that smells stays, get rid of the rug and train your dog.

Editors Comment: The best product that I have found for cleaning animal urine is the Melaleuca product “Sol-U-Mel’.  If you hear of anyone who sells the Melaleuca range then get some.  It is fantastic for a multitude of purposes!

Carpet Cleaning Tips for Common Spills During the Holiday Season

Posted By: admin  //  Category: Carpet Stain Removal

 

 

Do you ever notice that people seem to be a little friendlier this time of year? The Christmas season brings out the best in everyone, it truly is the season to be jolly! It is a time for family and friends coming together and enjoying good food and good company. The cleanup is a reality of the holiday season that many people forget about after the celebrating is over. Not only do we have a mess to contend with but also many times we have spills and stains on the carpet; gravy, wine, beer, coffee and soda, to mention a few. I have learned that most people treat these spills wrong and cause the stain to set into the carpet, making the job of removing them much more difficult.

This article will provide a guide to cleaning the most common spills that you get after the holiday season. The most important thing to remember is that timing is everything when it comes to a spill, the faster you clean up after a spill the better chance you have of removing the stain completely. There is three important steps you must follow to clean any stain.

The first step is to immediately blot the spill with a dry white cloth, napkin or paper towel, try to remove as much liquid as possible before going on to the next step.

The second step is to clean the spot and in order to do that you should mix a solution of mild dish detergent (no bleach) and warm water. Once you have mixed the solution blot the stain.

The third step is to neutralize the stain with a solution. Each stain has a different mixture and a solution for a few of the most common stains is included. Put the mixture into a spray bottle, mist the spot after cleaning it, and blot with a paper towel to absorb excess liquid. You can also spray with plain water and blot after you are done to rinse the area and make sure there are no chemicals left on the carpet.

For coffee, tea, beer, or white wine, the neutralizing mixture is one third of a cup of white vinegar and two thirds of a cup of water. For cola, soda, or pop stains, the mixture is one tablespoon of household ammonia and half a cup of water. For gravy stains you do not put it into a spray bottle you blot the spot after cleaning with a small amount of dry cleaning solvent (you may substitute isopropyl alcohol), make sure to use very small amounts to avoid any damage to the carpet.

The trickiest spot of all to clean is red wine, it is very important to treat this spill properly or you risk setting it into the carpet. Simply follow step one, then instead of cleaning it with water and dish detergent you mix one teaspoon of neutral dish soap (dawn works great) with a cup of hydrogen peroxide. You can pour the mixture over the spill to pre-soak it. You should actually see the red wine disappear in front of your eyes. If there is still a residue left afterwards rinse it with water, blot, and then pour a mound of salt on, the spot (the salt will draw the moisture and residue out of the carpet) wait until morning and then simply vacuum up the stain.

These tips for stain removal will help you with any of your holiday spills. Just remember to test any of the chemicals you use on an inconspicuous section of carpet, you can do this by putting a small amount on a white cloth and hold it to the carpet for 30 – 60 seconds, if there is no color transfer on to the cloth you should be fine. Please remember as well, that when the instructions say to blot, do not rub at the carpet or you risk damaging the fibres and making the stain go deeper into the fabric. Good Luck with your stain removal and Happy Holidays!

How do I get Ladybug or Lady Beetle stains out of a light colored carpet?

Posted By: admin  //  Category: Carpet Stain Removal, oxyclean

We recently purchased a home that apparently had a grouping of Ladybugs die under where they kept their bed. Bottom line is there is a nasty stain on the carpet now and rather than rip it up we’d like to give stain removal a shot.

Does anyone out there have any insight in what will get the stain out?

Thanks in advance.

I usually use oxy clean to get rough stains out of my carpet.  You just sprinkle approximately 1 cup of oxy clean on the stained spot then let it soak for approximately 15 minutes then vacum over the stained spot.

How to clean cigarette ash on carpet?

Posted By: admin  //  Category: Carpet Stain Removal

How would I go to cleaning a spilt ashtray on a carpet? My little brother pushed the ashtray off the desk and it went all over the carpet now theres a big grey stain. I sweeped most of the ash up now its just stuck in the carpet. I tryed OXYGEN stain removal spray and that just made it greyer. Also if I dont get it out right away will it cause mold?

Hi

I would recommend using a wet vac and slowly pour hot water (almost to the boiling point) on the spot and vacuum it up at the same time (this will open up the dye ports on the carpet fibre releasing the stain. and remove the residue from the carpet). If the stain is still visible than use a little carpet spotter on it or Dawn dishwashing liquid (2 or 3 drops into one cup of water) and repeat step 1.

The stain may come back in a few days so you may have to do this a few times. Please DO NOT put anything on the carpet that was not made for carpet. At this point if the stain is still there please call a carpet cleaner. Carpet cleaner of 14 years
