It’s official, Thanksgiving is just days away! This is an exciting time of year for family, friends, and loved ones to gather together and enjoy some of the best this season has to offer—particularly the food.
If you’re excited about the turkey, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, potatoes, and gravy but worried about the havoc these could reap when spilled on your carpet, don’t worry! Chem-Dry has proven solutions to help protect your carpet so you can relax and soak up the joy of the holiday without the stress.
Treating Holiday Carpet Stains
Carpets are always susceptible to stains, but the risk is even greater over the holidays.
Wet, cold winter weather means mud will likely be tracked onto your floors at some point—especially with the increased amount of guests coming in and out of your home this time of year. Your pets may spend more time indoors over the holidays, too, which can increase the chance of pet urine stains and odors on your floors. And of course, holiday entertaining—which usually revolves around food—makes it inevitable for things like soda, wine, fudge, and more to come in contact with your carpets.
The key to treating these types of stains is to act fast. The longer you let a stain sit on your carpet, the more difficult it can be to remove.
At the first sign of stains, use a store-bought carpet stain remover to treat the area. You can also create a highly effective cleaning solution on your own using ¼ cup white vinegar and 1 tbsp dish soap in a spray bottle with warm water. Spray over the stain, let it sit for 5-10 minutes, then gently blot the area with a dry cloth or towel. Repeat the process until the stain is gone completely.
It’s also important to remember prevention when it comes to tough carpet stains. Make sure your carpets are professionally cleaned every year, and have your local Chem-Dry professionals apply their signature carpet stain protectant in the process.
This specially formulated solution adds a protective barrier around your carpet fibers, helping them to repel liquid so you can clean it up before stains even occur.
