Stained Carpet Cleaning in Sherman Oaks

Blood stains are the most common in residential homes and people with pets or kids are the most prone to this sort of stain. When you first see the blood, you should soak it with a paper towel to absorb as much of the moisture as you can. Don't rub or push the blood into the carpet as this makes the stain harder to remove. Take a small bowl and mix one teaspoon of regular laundry detergent, one teaspoon of white vinegar, and a quart of luke warm water together. Apply the mixture to the stain liberally and allow it to dry completely. After the spot has dried, simply vacuum the area. If needed repeat the process.

Candles are a great addition to any room, but when the wax drops on your carpet, it can be a nightmare to get out. Thankfully there is a very simple solution; take a piece of ice and hold it firmly on the wax, once it hardens, you can simply pull the wax off of the carpet fibers. This also works for chewed gum or other sticky candies. It's best to clean wax stains right away, if the area is walked on, the wax can get broken down and become difficult to remove in one piece. If that happens, simply call Heaven's Best for professional carpet cleaning in Sherman Oaks to restore your carpet to its natural luster.

Fruit is very healthy, but not so good for your carpet. As with all stains, rapid action is the best way to prevent permanent stains. First pick up the spilled fruit and use an absorbent cloth to soak up the remaining liquid. Mix a cup of warm water with a teaspoon of mild laundry detergent and a drop of white vinegar. Apply the mixture to the spot and allow drying. After it has dried completely, vacuum the area.

Acid stains are the most damaging stains a carpet can get; they ruin the uniformity of your carpet and can't be repaired. Things that can cause acid stains are liquids like pure vinegar, certain cleaning solvents, and drain cleaners. The moment you see any of these spills, liberally douse the area in a solution of club soda or baking soda and water. After diluting, make a mixture of a ten parts clean water and one part ammonia. Put the mixture on the spot and then soak with an absorbent cotton cloth. Take plain water and rinse the area to remove all traces of ammonia and allow drying. Then vacuum the spot.

These are just a few ways to remove stains from your carpet, if you run into any spots that you can't seem to get out, we are happy to offer carpet cleaning in Sherman Oaks, as well as the surrounding areas.
