A spot on the carpet! What to do now?
Even with the utmost of care, carpet staining is inevitable. The sooner a stain is cleaned, the easier it will be to completely remove. Keep in mind that not all stains can be removed: bleached areas caused by chlorine bleach or sunlight are impossible to get rid of, and liquids like urine, if allowed to dry, can leave permanent stains.
When stains occur try to clean the area to the best of your ability. If the following tips do not remove the stain, call Resurrection and we will send out a technician to address your carpet and upholstery needs.
Step 1. Blot any excess liquid with a paper towel or clean cloth.
Step 2. Use the least amount of cleaning solution possible, work from the outside of the stain toward the center to prevent any spreading. To prevent fiber damage, don’t rub the carpet with too much force.
Step 3. Be sure to dry the area with a hairdryer or fan when you are finished.
For coffee, tea, soda – Apply club soda or white vinegar/water mixture.
For Pet Stains – apply white vinegar/water solution. Once dry, apply baking soda, leave over night, vacuum in the morning.
For Food, Grease & Oil – Mix ½ cup water with one heaping tbsp. cornstarch. Apply and gently scrub. Once the area is dry, brush loose and vacuum.
We recommend raking your carpets prior to vacuuming to release dirt trapped in matted fibers and to increase the longevity of your carpets.
Carpet Cleaning Tips
What folks are saying about us.
Resurrection Carpet did an excellent job of cleaning my 2200 sq. ft. home. I have 2 dogs and 4 kids so of course there was a lot of wear and tear as well stains and pet odors to deal with. Not only did my carpets receive new life, but it's nice to have that clean home smell back in the house. Thanks for putting in the extra effort to make sure the job was done right, at a price that's affordable.
Eight years ago I purchased a beautiful white chair for my living room. Three kids later, I had an original piece of artwork thanks to pen, marker and dirty little hands. I had given up on that poor chair and thought reupholstering was my only option. Eli came in and removed all the marks and spots I had fought with for years. My white chair was white again, he really did bring life back to my upholstery!
I was so happy with my service, I posted this review on Yelp... Ditto on the other 5 star reviews!!! Eli and his partner were here today. They warned me before they began my carpets were a mess - I agreed and said I didn't hold high expectations, just buy me some time until I could afford to replace - OMG - they look absolutely fantastic!!!! And they said they will only get better as I vacuum them over the next few days. They were both professional, personable, hard working and a true pleasure to have in my home. I feel bad I used such a great coupon b/c they are worth full price. These guys are professionals. I had another company out last year (or longer ago)... they claimed to get carpet cleaner, but their job doesn't hold a candle to what I see after this duo. I'd give them ten stars if I could!
Just wanted to give you A++ in the job you did for me. I had spilled some very blue nail polish. I cannot believe that you were able to lift almost all of that mess.
