Had a spill? Remember this stain removal drill!

It’s Christmas!

A time to eat, drink and be merry ..
Had a spill? Remember this drill

So, we thought you might appreciate

a reminder of what to do if there’s a spill

(or Santa forgets to wipe his feet!!)

1. Act fast!  Many spills can be removed without a trace if immediate action is taken, especially if your carpet has been treated with a stain-resistant treatment, such as Chem-Dry’s “Repel”. The longer the delay, the higher the probability that a spill will damage your carpet and create a permanent stain. Remember, stains will happen with regular wear and are influenced by many factors.

2. Blot up liquids with a dry, white, absorbent cloth or plain white kitchen roll (with no festive prints on it, that may transfer the colour when wet!)

3. NEVER scrub at the affected area! Scrubbing may cause pile distortion in the affected area. Use a dry cloth or paper towels (see point 2, above) and blot the area until it is completely dry. For semi-solids, gently scrape up with a rounded utensil such as a spoon. Solids should be broken up and vacuumed until completely removed.

4. If you don’t have any Chem-Dry home-care products to hand try soda water or fizzy mineral water. Dampen the affected area with a very small amount of the water and gently massage it into the carpet or fabric fibres with, for example, the back of a spoon. Never overwet the area. Wait about 30 seconds for the bubbles in the liquid to lift the residue of the spill and, once again, blot, blot,blot.

5. Check the cloth to ensure there are no signs of colour transfer from the carpet or fabric.

6. Work from the edges of the spill to the center to prevent the spill from spreading.  Again, remember NOT to scrub! Blot to absorb as much of the stain as possible. Repeat if necessary.

8. Take your time – be patient! Complete removal of the spill may require repeating the same step several times. Do not continue to step 9 until the stain has been completely removed.

10. Apply a half inch layer of white paper towels to the affected area, and weigh it down with a flat, heavy object – or get the children to take turns standing on it! Continue to change the paper towels as often as needed.
