Hiding Carpet Stains

7-14-16.JPGIt’s the day before your big party.  You’re vacuuming up your carpet when all of a sudden, WHAM!  A pen you accidentally ran over exploded, and ink is all over the floor.  There is no time to call in a service, and you really need to hide the stain.  So, what do you do?  Join us today, as we share an ingenious way to hide even the worst carpet stains in minutes.

Before we begin, we would like to add that this is a last-ditch effort.  Only do it if you have no other alternative, and be sure to call in a professional service as soon as you can to properly remove the stain.

Once a nasty spill occurs on your carpet, your immediate reaction should be to soak up any of the remaining liquid and get the spot to be as dry as possible.  In this case, grab a handful of paper towels and dab around the stain–do not rub!

After there is no excess liquid left, your next step should be to try a homemade treatment, such as a baking soda-vinegar mix.  Apply it to the stain, and soak it up after 5 minutes.  If a stain still persists, no worries, as we have a foolproof method to cover it up.

Go and look in your child’s room for the biggest box of crayons you can find.  Bring them back to the scene of the crime, and find the crayon that best matches the hue of your carpet.  Once you’ve found the corresponding crayon, color in the stain.  No need to go inside the lines here.  At the very least, you’ll be able to make the mark less visible, buying you time until you can call in a service.

However, we will add that coloring in the spot with crayon is just staining your carpet again.  That is why it is extremely important to call Bayside Carpet Cleaning as soon as you can, so that we can remove both stains and leave your carpet looking like new again.

With a cool head and a little knowledge, you can cut even the worst of scenarios down to size.  For more carpet care tips, be sure to check out our blog every Tuesday and Thursday!
