Stain & Odor Removal

There’s nothing like putting on a new item of clothing only to spill something on it right after. Or, that proud feeling of showing off a brand new rug only for a beloved pet to make their mark on it. But fret not — where there’s a will to get a stain out, there’s a way. An expert in cleaning says to dab a solution of water and bleach alternative on the stain and follow up by dabbing it with a towel of clear hot water. Then, use a clean towel blot up the wet area. “If your carpet is white or a light color, it will appear bleached but If you leave it for a few weeks the color will even out once again,” he says.

While we make every effort to remove all spots and stains it’s important to remember that not all spots or stains are removable without potential color or fiber texture damage. Rest assured we will make you aware of any spots or stains during our inspection that may present one of these issues.  Mix baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to form a thick paste the consistency of peanut butter. Spread the mixture about one-fourth inch thick over the stain and cover with plastic wrap. Tape down the edges of the plastic wrap to hold it in place. Allow the mixture to remain on the stain for 24 hours. Remove the plastic wrap and allow the mixture to dry completely, then wipe away. Repeat as needed until the stain is gone. After cleaning, the stained area will need to be resealed to prevent further staining.

Removing odors from your carpeting is just as important as removing stains and spots. We always include a deodorizer in our standard service. All of our deodorizers are non-toxic, non-flammable and environmentally friendly.
