Carpet Cleaning

  • Scrape away any solids
  • Liquids: Quickly blot up liquids using a clean white towel or paper towel.
  • Grease: For greasy stains, use a nonflammable dry-cleaning agent to the spot with a white towel. Don’t scrub. Dab gently until the grease stain comes clean.
  • For stubborn grease stains: Sprinkle the stain with baking soda, cornstarch, cornmeal, or talcum powder. Leave that on the grease stain for at least six hours, then vacuum.
  • For water-soluble stains: Apply a detergent solution to the stain (1.5 teaspoons mild detergent per 1 pint of water), working from the edges of the stain to the center of the stain. Then, place several pieces of white tissue or paper towels over the spot and weigh it down with a few books or heavy pots and pans. Let it stand for about one hour. Replace the tissues with fresh tissues or towels and leave them on the stain overnight. The next day, remove the tissue and use your fingers to fluff up the carpet.
  • Always test any cleaning product on an inconspicuous part of the carpet and let it dry before you continue.
