The Hardest Stains to Remove From Carpets

Replacing your carpet is expensive so it’s important to take good care of it. When it comes to carpet stains, you probably already know there are some stains that are harder to remove than others. Calling in the best carpet cleaner is definitely more affordable than new flooring. You just never know when you’re going to need a reliable carpet cleaning company. So, it’s a good idea to have a working relationship with a local carpet cleaning service, instead of using store products that only make stains and odors worse.

Sometimes you only get one opportunity or “shot” to remove a difficult stain. At home spotting attempts can make it more difficult for a professional to remove them and, in some cases, can even preset the stain to where a professional no longer has a chance to get it 100% out. Read on to learn more.

The Toughest Stains

The stains that are the hardest to remove from your carpet are often the ones that are caused by natural compounds. Unfortunately, these are also the ones that cause the worst smells, and are more noticeable when compared to other kinds of stains.

Good examples of stains that are hard to remove include red wine and tomato sauce. Both tomato sauce and red wine are rich in natural dyes that are easily absorbed by soft furnishings and carpets. The worst thing you can do is try to remove them yourself. Most of the time, they only become worse when you apply a general household cleaning product to get rid of them.

Beetroot juice is also hard to remove from carpets. It contains betanin, which is another natural dye that is best removed by a professional carpet cleaning company. It is very unlikely that you can remove this tough stain on your own.

If you have been unfortunate enough to spill candle wax, paint, or glue on your carpets, you should call in your local carpet cleaning company as soon as possible. Attempting to remove glue and wax using online methods, such as ice or hot water, is not going to work. The only thing you’ll do is to damage the fibers in your carpet. You need the best carpet cleaner for this mess.

Stains that Smell Bad

Unfortunately, there are also stains that smell bad. Removing the actual stain is not always the main problem. However, fluids that smell bad, or even foul, have a habit of getting stuck in carpet fibers. They will penetrate the carpet, and in the worst case scenario, they can even soak through, deep into the soft underlay of the carpet.

As all pet owners know, our furry critters have accidents from time to time. When that happens, try to soak up as much of the “spill” as possible. Blot, don’t rub. Once you have done so, it’s best to call your local carpet cleaning company to ask them to refresh your carpets. A professional carpet cleaning service will take care of both the stain and eliminate any foul smell that’s lingering in the fibers.
