How to Get Rid of Old Carpet Stains

While carpet can add a warm and welcoming feel to your home over floorboards, they also come with their own level of maintenance. If you have managed to accumulate fruit juice or dirt stains in your carpets, Portland Cleanpro has an easy way to help lift out those problems stains.

Here's What You'll Need

  • Spray Bottle
  • 1/4 Tablespoon of vinegar
  • 1/4 Gallon of water

Now What You Will Need to Do:

  • Start by thoroughly vacuuming the area to remove any loose threads or excess dirt or build up. Giving the solution the best starting chance can lead to better results.
  • Shake up the  mixture well and thoroughly spray and soak the affected area. While it's important to provide sufficient coverage, don't get your carpet to the point where the solution has begun to dew on the fibers.
  • Let let mixture settle for about 15 minutes to lift out the stain or mark, making sure a constant flow of fresh air is passing by the carpet. If possible, place a fan in front of the area for a constant flow of air.
  • Take a super-absorbent towel and soak up the remaining mixture, making sure to apply only mid level pressure and not rub, to minimize the chance of discoloration.
  • Now you can let the area dry! There you have it - that old stain has gone and your carpet is looking good again.
