When it comes to cleaning your upholstery, there are a number of things that you can do in order to make sure that accidents are taken care of. Stains can’t always be removed on your own, but there are a few tips and tricks that can help you if you are in a bind. If you are able to catch the stain while it is still fresh, you may stand a chance at removing it successfully.

Tips to Cleaning Large Stains

If the stain is large, on cotton, or has had a chance to settle, you may want to consider hiring a professional carpet cleaning company in order to make the stain disappear. Trying to remove the stain on its own if it has already settled, especially if it is on cotton, may end up being a huge waste of time.

One of the most common types of upholstery stains is coffee. If you spill coffee, combine a small amount of vinegar, dish detergent and water and dab it gently over the stain in order to lift it. Once the area has been treated, let it dry and see whether or not the stain has been removed.

Oftentimes, the stain will be partially removed and can be completely removed with one more treatment. If this does not work, call a professional cleaning company. A professional carpet cleaning company will have the necessary equipment to make removing stains easier than if you are trying to do it on your own.

Tips to Cleaning Small Areas

In order to treat small areas of mold and mildew (it’s not a good idea to treat a large area-if there is a large area of mold or mildew in your home it is imperative that you leave your home until the problem is solved so that you don’t get sick) mix hydrogen peroxide and bleach. For tougher stains like crayon or marker, you can try to use non-gel toothpaste. Non-gel toothpaste is sometimes effective when it comes to treating more severe stains that are still on a smaller scale.

You won’t want to attempt to treat a large crayon or marker stain with toothpaste because that would be a tedious endeavor that might not even payoff. If you are worried about the size or severity of the stain, you can always call a carpet cleaning company and get a free estimate.

If there is anything that you can do on your own to remove the stain, the carpet cleaning company will surely tell you about it as long as they are reputable and trustworthy. Remember, there is no reason to spend money on treating stains if you can find a simple, DIY solution. If you have exhausted all of your efforts, find comfort in knowing that most carpet cleaning companies will be able to help you if the stain proves to be too bothersome to remove on your own.
