Spot and Spill Procedures

Make sure that you safely and immediately clean up spots and spills before they set.

Scoop up or scrape the solids off of the carpet or rug.

Soak or blot up the excess liquid by blotting with a clean absorbent material. Do not brush or scrub the stain.

Always work from the edge of the spot inwards.

Then spot clean with a WoolSafe-approved spotter www.woolsafeusa.
org/consumer products or mild liquid laundry detergent solution mixed 1/2 teaspoon with 1-quart water. Apply small quantities at a time, applied to a cloth, NOT directly to the spot; work into the spot with a small brush or sponge.

Do not over wet. Blot dry until most of the moisture has been absorbed and color is no longer visible on the towel.

Rinse area thoroughly with a mixture of 6-parts water to one part white distilled vinegar. Avoid wetting the rug’s backing.

Dry completely. A fan or cool hair dryer can be used to speed up the drying process.

Some stains or animal contamination you may find impossible to remove completely in which case the assistance of a professional may be required.

I recently hired Van’s Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Service to clean my living room furniture and some oriental rugs and was thrilled with their service. I was very impressed with their responsiveness and attention to every detail as well as the excellent quality of their work. Customer service is not just a marketing slogan at Van’s. They really deliver and I highly recommend them.
