Spills & Spots

Like any textile, carpets require proper care to maintain their original beauty. There are three main things that you can do to maintain your carpets: 1- vacuum regularly, 2- clean spills immediately, and 3- have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year.

What to do when a spill happens¦

1    Take up as much of the spill as possible using a towel

2    Gently press a clean cloth into the spill to remove as much moisture as possible. Don’t scrub! Scrubbing can damage the fiber and set the stain.

3    Add warm water, and blot the stain until color stops transferring to the cloth.

4    If the stain persists, make a detergent solution by adding a ¼ tsp of dishwashing liquid to 1 cup of warm water.

5    Apply the solution to the spill and let sit for 5 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. Repeat until all the solution is removed.

6    Place paper towel on the spill to absorb the liquid. Weigh down the towels and let sit overnight.

7    Once the carpet is dry, vacuum to restore the texture.

8    If the stain persists, repeat step 3 through 7.
