What to do about stains
First you must act quickly for any stain type. Pick up any solids that are easily removable. For liquids, blot up quickly with a dry towel. Water-Soluble, which include most food, beverage, urine and vomit.
Solvent-Soluble, which include oils, greases, tar, crayon, lipstick and butter.
Please Note: After all spotting procedures, you should use a neutralizing rinse to remove the residue.
To remove water-soluble stains:
You will first need to make a detergent solution. Mix 1 teaspoon of mild detergent (not automatic dishwasher detergent) into 1 pint of warm water. Sponge the detergent mixture onto the water-soluble stain and work the solution from the outer edges toward the center of the stain. A lather will form. Gently sponge off this lather with clear water until all visible sign of the suds have disappeared.
Alpha Carpet and Rug Cleaning has a home spotter that may be used directly from the bottle, just follow the instructions on the label and then use a neutralizing rinse.
To remove solvent-soluble stains:
We recommend using only professional stain removers. Other brands may harm your fibers and the backing underneath the carpet.
Alpha Carpet and Rug Cleaning provides professional stain removers. Follow instructions on the label and then use the neutralizing rinse.
To perform a neutralizing rinse:
Mix 1 tablespoon of White vinegar into 1 pint of cold water.
Sponge this mixture lightly onto the affected area. The vinegar will neutralize detergent residue that may remain in the carpet or that may wick to the surface during the drying process.
Blot as much of the moisture out of the area as possible by using absorbent white cloth or paper towels.
