What is stain
Staining occurs from the chemical bonding of a pigment with the carpet fibre and once this bonding has taken place, separating the two is extremely difficult without causing damage to the carpet pile. That’s why it’s critical to sort out spills and stains as soon as they happen.
Getting rid of carpet stains: golden rule and first step
Before you do anything, make sure you have scraped up any solids and blotted up any excess liquid spills with paper towels.
Remember — never rub wet carpet! It’s extremely important to preserve the carpet’s original texture while removing any dirt/liquids that leads to stains. This will preserve your carpet and increase it's lifespan.
- 'Contain the stain' then blot up any liquids straight away with paper towels.
- Scoop up solids immediately with a knife or spoon — try not to push the substance further into the carpet pile.
- Rub carpet when it’s wet. This will damage the carpet pile and send the stain deeper.
- Drown the carpet in water or any other liquid.
With liquid stains, we’d recommend the use of our Wet Stain Remover .
If you don’t have any Wet Stain Remover handy, then the next best thing would be to dilute the area with lukewarm water and re-blot thoroughly using clean, dry paper towels, ensuring you do not rub the stain. You can continue to gently apply water and re-blot. The wool pile will not be damaged by water as long as you don’t over-wet the carpet, which may cause watermarks on the surface or damage to the backing.
