It can be a challenge to keep carpets looking their best, especially as you go about your daily routine. It’s inevitable for things like dirt, food and beverages, pet urine, and even blood to find their way onto floors. But not to worry, Chem-Dry can help with the industry’s best carpet cleaning in Newhall.

We specialize in removing stains from the source. And in addition to our professional service, here are a few pro tips for spot treating tough stains fast right when they happen.

Treating Tough Stains

  • Blood. Act fast by rinsing as much of the blood away as you can using color water. Follow up with a simple solution like two tablespoons of dishwashing liquid diluted in cold water. You can also try a store-bought treatment like Oxi-Clean—this works especially well on blood stains.
  • Ink. Dip a light cloth in isopropyl alcohol. Gently dab the stain and repeat until the stain is gone.
  • Pet stains and odors. Scoop up or gently dab away as much of the stain as you can first. Next, use a cleaning solution containing ammonia. Just make sure it’s marked as safe for use around pets. A solution of warm water and vinegar followed by baking soda can also help. Keep professional pet urine odor removal on your radar regularly as well.
  • Water soluble stains. For things like chocolate, wine, or vomit, try a solution containing one cup water and one tablespoon ammonia, or five parts water with one part chlorine bleach. Be sure to test a small section of your carpet first.
  • Oil, fat, wax or gum. Harden the stain first by placing ice over top of it. Chip away as much as you can using a dull knife. For any of these stains besides gum, you can also try placing a towel over the area then ironing over it on a low setting so the stain sticks to the towel.
  • Glue. Gently and gradually apply rubbing alcohol using a cotton swab.
  • Coffee. Soak up as much of the stain as possible first, then use a cleaning solution containing one and a quarter cups of water and a quarter cup of bleach. Rinse the area well and repeat as needed.
  • Washable ink or latex paint. Try making your own solution using a quarter teaspoon white vinegar diluted in about thirty two ounces of water.
  • Food, dyes, soda, or alcoholic beverages. Try a white vinegar solution or a store-bought solution like Resolve or Oxi-Clean.
