How To Clean Most Party Stains From Your Carpet

Who doesn’t enjoy a good party?  Good food, good company, good entertainment, everyone looking and feeling their best.  Really, what’s not to like?  And its definitely the season for parties here in Colorado. Graduations will soon be occurring up and down the Front Range, with weddings and summertime fun close behind. And while it may seem like a great time to get outdoors and entertain from the outside, it also means more people will be going in and out, bring the outside in. And onto your carpets.

So, as your guests file out one by one and you are left surveying the damage to what several hours ago was a clean home, what on earth do you do?  As you start collecting the trash, dishes, and mislaid items, you will likely notice your flooring did not escape unscathed.  Follow these simple steps to help restore your carpet to its pre-party condition.

Start early - The sooner you get to a stain, the less likely it is to set in and be a major hassle.  After a party, it is important to assess and deal with carpet stains as soon as possible.  The longer you wait, the more likely it is that the stain will leave a lasting impression.

Know your enemy - Do your best to identify the source of the stain.  If you know what caused it, you will be better prepared to properly deal with it.

Begin with a blot - If your stain is wet at all, begin by using a clean rag to blot the area.  Do not rub at this point as that will only spread the stain.

Use your secret weapon - One of the best solutions for carpet stains is natural spot solution – we leave a bottle after every cleaning.

Vacuum - Be sure to thoroughly vacuum the area after you have finished.  This will help prevent dirt particles from attaching to the area as it dries.

Have any stubborn stains that simply won’t go away? Maybe its time for a thorough cleaning. Regular carpet cleanings is the best way to help maintain your carpets and keep them looking new.
