    Are you trying to decide what to do about your carpet stains and whether or not you need specialty cleaning? There are a few things to consider, including the safety of stain removers. Here’s the lowdown:

    Stain Removers and Your Carpet

    While stain removers are developed to remove stains without damaging your carpets, some people have a hard time committing to using them. They are full of cleaning agents that some people might object to. On the other hand, if you have a tough stain, they often work really well to help get it out of your carpet.

    Alternatives to Stain Removers

    There are some homemade solutions you can use on your carpets that might appeal to you more, especially if you have kids and pets. You can use a vinegar and water solution or you can use a mix of vinegar, Dawn dish soap, and water to clean the stain. Be sure to use a white cloth and be gentle. A lot of harsh rubbing can push the stain deeper in the fibers and can damage the carpet itself.

    Professional Alternative

    While some stain removers, commercial and homemade, work great on minor stains, you could still be left with some discoloration or even a foul odor in your carpet. When this happens, the good news is that professional carpet cleaners are incredibly successful at removing those pesky stain leftovers and odors with products that are safe for your home, and your family.

    There’s nothing wrong with using stain removers on your carpet, generally speaking. However, if you have a stain or residue from a stain, call in the pros to get your carpet really clean.
