• 3 Pro Tips for Cleaning Up Leftover Holiday Stains


    What your flooring needs after the whirlwind of the holiday season.

    When the holidays are over, your carpets and flooring can often tell the stories about what happened. Dirt and stains show up once the guests go home and the decorations packed away, but you don't have to live with them until next year. Take a look at these three pro tips for cleaning up leftover holiday stains:

    Tip #1: Check the House for Stains

    Take a look at the whole house carefully and look for any stains that might be hiding. Cranberry sauce, wine, and gravy might show up in the dining room. Paint, crayons, and markers might make themselves known in the kids' playroom. And dirt and mud tracks might be present in the hallways and near the doors into and out of your house.

    Tip #2: Use Gentle Cleaners

    Vinegar can be your number one weapon in the fight against holiday stains. With a cloth and a mix of water and vinegar, you can gently get out most stains. If the stain is grease-based, use a mild detergent in place of the vinegar. Be sure to blot the stain, don't wipe or rub, as it can push the stain further into the carpet or spread it, and that makes it worse.

    Tip #3: Professional Cleaning After the Holidays

    Once the holidays are behind you, professional carpet cleaning can get your house back into shape for the rest of the year. Not only will it get out the general dirt from having people in and out of your home throughout the party season, but it can get up any stubborn stains that vinegar or detergent can't.

    Hold onto the memories of the holidays, but not the dirt and grime on your carpets. Contact the team at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners to get your house back in shape.
