stain removal

Homeowners should not attempt DIY stain removal on carpet. You might be tempted to because it is fast and cheap to remove a stain on your own but a lot can go wrong if you try to do it yourself.

You might think that removing a stain from carpet is the same as removing a stain from dishes or clothes or other items in your home but it is not. Dishes and clothes can be cleaned in machines where there is a lot of soap and water and rinsing capabilities whereas you have to be much more delicate and precise with carpet stain removal.

Even water can be bad for carpet stains. That’s right. You might think it is OK to try to clean a spill or stain on your carpet with just some water but there are specific types of stains that will react poorly and create permanent damage.

This is even more true with cleaning chemicals or other solutions like vinegar, lemon juice or hairspray. All of these solutions can damage or permanently stain carpet too.

We can’t recommend hiring Sacramento carpet cleaners enough. But if you do attempt to remove a stain on your own you should test the solution and cleaning method somewhere discrete first.

Maybe try the solution in a closet, behind furniture, or even better, on a leftover carpet scrap from when the carpet was installed.

If something goes unexpected than at least you haven’t damaged a visible portion of the carpet.

But like we said, we really recommend calling a carpet cleaning Sacramento service to handle your stains.
