Treating Coffee Stains in Your Carpet
Of all the stubborn stains that can get into your carpets, coffee is one of the toughest. For regular coffee drinkers it is almost inevitable that a spill will turn up sooner or later, and without taking immediate action, you might be left with a permanent stain that only a professional can remove. With a few household products and a quick response, you may be able to effectively remove the problem.
However, some stains are simply too stubborn to treat conventionally, and require a more powerful cleaning agent and professional attention in order to get the job done. If your stains are beyond your abilities to remove, call the experienced Austin carpet cleaning experts of WOW Total Cleaning today at 512-291-0048 to schedule an appointment with our knowledgeable and effective carpet cleaning specialists.
The Process of Removing Coffee Stains
In order to quickly remove coffee stains before they become a permanent addition to your carpet, follow these steps:
- Mix a teaspoon of dishwashing detergent with about a quart of warm water and apply the solution to the affected area.
- Work in the mixture with your fingers, and then blot with a dry towel. Repeat until you’ve used all the solution.
- Repeat the process with a 1 to 2 mixture of vinegar and water, blotting up the excess each time you apply.
- Rinse repeatedly with tap water and blot the excess.
If these techniques fail to get the coffee stains in your carpet up, it is likely time to call in the professionals.
