How to Remove Red Wine Stains From CarpetNovember 12th, 2015 | by Angelo | 0
It’s not uncommon to have a spill at a party. In fact, the other day my wife and I were at a friend’s house in South Surrey and one the other guests had had a bit too much wine that evening. Around 9pm, Harry was fumbling his words and before we knew it, the red wine had gotten all over Susan’s carpet.
Pro Carpet Cleaner to the Rescue
Being a carpet cleaning professional for over 20 years, I was quick to notice the impeccable upkeep of George and Susan’s carpet throughout the home when we arrived. They were a couple who obviously invested in regular professional carpet cleaning services over the years. When the red wine came crashing down from the very inebriated Harry’s hands, I saw Susan just about collapse. I’m sure many of you are familiar: Red wine is just about the worst enemy of a white carpet. With my carpet cleaning expertise, I knew I could save the day.
How to Remove Red Wine Stains From Carpet
- BLOT WITH PAPER TOWEL: First, be sure to blot up the spilled wine right away, because the longer you let the red sit in your carpet, the more difficult it will be as time passes. Be sure to blot, not RUB. Use a paper towel or an old rag to blot the stain.
- ADD COLD WATER; KEEP BLOTTING: Continue blotting. As the spot begins to dry, wet the stain with cold water which will dilute the red wine as you continue blotting until the carpet is dry again.
- CALL A PROFESSIONAL: At this point, you’ve done as must damage control as you can while you guests are still at the party. Book your appointment for the next day to request a professional to remove the stain once and for all. It’s worth the call!
