Labor Day weekend may be your last chance to have a summer BBQ with friends and family, so you are sure to want to kick things off right! Along with the fun, you want to be prepared for the inevitable accidental spills on your carpet once the party gets in full swing. Below are just a few stain removal treatments to keep in mind this Labor Day. While these are an excellent first step, if the stain is large or already set in—it may be best to reach out for professional carpet cleaning in Phoenix.

Stain Removal Remedies for These Common Stains

BBQ Sauce

BBQ sauce is a dark sauce that can cause a stain regardless of the color of your carpets. If sauce finds its way to your carpet follow the steps below:

Step 1: Gently blot any excess sauce from the carpet, without pushing the sauce deeper into the carpet fibers.

Step 2: Sponge the area with a solution of 2 cups cold water and 1T dishwashing detergent. Blot the area until the stain is removed.

Step 3: Once the stain is removed, sponge the area with cold water. Then blot with a dry towel. Avoid foot traffic while drying.

 

Dirt Or Mud

If the weather is nice this Labor Day, the kids may take the opportunity to run through the sprinkler, play on the slip and slide, or swim in the pool. If they forget to wipe their feet when they come inside, you may end up with dirt, mud, or even grass on your carpets.

Step 1: If already dry, vacuum up any excess dirt or debris.

Step 2: Follow Steps 1-3 for the BBQ Stain removal

 

Beer Or Wine Stains

Beer and wine not only stain, but beer in particular can leave quite an unpleasant aroma if not properly cleaned. Follow the steps below to remove staining and manage odor.

Step 1: Gently blot any excess beer or wine from the carpet, without pushing the liquid deeper into the carpet fibers.

Step 2: Sponge the area with a solution of 2 cups warm water, mixed with 1T each of white vinegar and dishwashing detergent.

Step 3: Once the stain is removed, sponge the area with cold water. Then blot with a dry towel. Avoid foot traffic while drying.

If the steps above fail to remove stains, reach out to local Phoenix carpet cleaners to tackle your stubborn stains. Also consider if it is a good time to have your entire carpets cleaned, or if you only require spot treatment.

 

Bonus Tip: Scotchgard Your Carpets After Every Deep Cleaning

Another way to make year-round carpet stains easier to remove, is to have your Phoenix carpet cleaners apply Scotchgard after your annual cleaning. This protective layer will repel stains, and make it more difficult for spills to penetrate your carpet. It will also help to maintain your carpet in high traffic areas.
