Stain removal guide for various household carpet stains
This is a carpet stain removal guide to help with common household stains such as tea, coffee, dog urine and black marks on the edges of carpet. I have been dealing with carpet stains for many years and I’m often asked to remove the most difficult types stains. Carpets can be a large financial investment it can be very disappointing to live with a nasty stain. Spillages can occur due to accidents often cause by many different reasons, but often due to children and pets.
Will all types of carpet stains come out if treated by a professional? Many types of stains can be removed without a problem. However some types of stains can be permanent due to the spillage having irreversibly changed the colour of the carpet. Dying of the carpet fibers can also occur due to tannin in tea and coffee or food colouring in food stuffs.
One of the most problematic carpet stains is either tea or coffee spilled on the carpet. On wool carpets the stain can often be permanent due to the tannin permanently dying the carpet. On synthetic stain resistant carpets however, the stains can often be removed.
