• Practical Guide to Cleaning Common Household Stains


    Do you know what to do when stains strike at home?

    Stains are annoying. But they're part of life, especially if you have pets or kids. Why is it that some stains seem to happen more often than others? There's no way to answer that, but there are ways you can tackle the most common household stains. Here's a practical guide:

    Starting Your Day with Coffee Stains

    Everyone drinks coffee, or at least almost everyone, or so it seems. That’s why coffee is such a common spill and stain. If it gets on your carpet or furniture, the best thing to do is get the liquid up as quickly as you can using a clean cloth. But don’t scrub! Press the cloth into the coffee to soak up as much as you can. If the coffee still shows in the fabric, use a vinegar and water solution and gently rub the stain.

    Everyone Loves Chocolate. But Not on the Furniture.

    Who doesn't love relaxing on the couch, watching a movie and indulging in some chocolate? But when it gets on the upholstery, it takes the fun out of it. Address it right away by gently cleaning it with a solution of two cups water mixed with one tablespoon of mild dish soap. That should get the stain out.

    Pets Are Your Best Friends. But Their Stains Are Not.

    We all love our pets, but along with pets come the inevitable accidents on the carpet. The first thing to do is use a clean cloth to soak up as much of the urine as you can. Lay the cloth on the spot and step on it to pull the liquid out of the carpet. Next, use a vinegar and water solution and gently rub the spot. The vinegar should deodorize at the same time it cleans.

    Instead of dealing with stains on your carpet and furniture yourself, get them professionally cleaned. This will effectively battle the stains and get rid of the odors. For professional stain cleaning you can count on, contact the pros at Whitehall Carpet Cleaning.
