Turkey Day has come and gone, and with it, all the close relatives whom you love to spend the holidays with. However, in the midst of the holiday and a weekend of guests, there may be some cleaning to do around the house, especially on your floors. Today, join us as we give you a quick and comprehensive guide to a thorough Thanksgiving clean up to help bring your floors back to looking like new (even if a full turkey made a spill onto it)!
The first thing that we are going to cover in this guide are carpet stains. Now, you may have missed them on Thanksgiving, but make a point to go back over to where you and your family ate your meal, and check the floor to see if anything spilled. One stain that you are likely to find is a gravy stain, as the gravy just seems to go everywhere. To take care of this, place down a absorbent such as baking soda, and allow it to soak up all of the gravy from the carpet. If dry, or if there is no more gravy to soak up, use a gentle commercial dry solvent on the stain to take it right out. Blot the stain with water after application of the solvent. Repeat until the stain is totally lifted.
Another common stain that may still be one your floor is one caused by cranberries. To remove this stain, simply mix together a concoction of one tablespoons of white vinegar with 2/3 cup of rubbing alcohol. Blot the mixture onto the stain, and then dab with a dry towel to pick up the solution, along with the stain. Repeat until fully removed.
In addition to these stains, you may have stains on the tile in your bathroom from overnight guests. The overall best way to get these stains out is to use a mop, water, and some elbow grease, as some commercial cleaners can damage the tile. With enough persistence, you should be able to get just about every stain out of your tile.
Remember, however, that help is always there when you need it. If you come across a stain that you just cannot get out, or you want to spruce up the house for the coming holidays, Bayside Carpet Cleaning has you covered.
