Treating Ink Stains in Your Carpets

Treating Ink Stains in Your Carpets

One of the most unforgiving substances that can stain your carpets and turn into a cleaning nightmare is ink from broken pens, cartridges, and other containers. The nature of ink causes it to spread quickly when scrubbed, making a small stain dramatically worse when untrained cleaning attempts are made. As with many other stains that can dry and set, home cleaning attempts are best made as quickly as possible for good results.

Unfortunately, some stains are simply too serious for home cleaning methods to be effective and it may become necessary to seek professional assistance. The Austin carpet cleaning experts at WOW Total Cleaning have years of experience in providing top quality carpet cleaning services, and have the equipment and resources to take on even the toughest stains.

Steps for Treating Ink Stains

For small stains, you may be able to save your carpet if you act quickly to treat the problem. Follow these simple steps when an ink spill occurs:

  1. Dampen a cloth with isopropyl alcohol
  2. Dab, but do not rub or scrub the stain
  3. Repeat as necessary
  4. Rinse the spot with water
  5. Vacuum the affected area dry

While the above methods can be very effective for many small stains, most ink-stain situations will need professional attention.
