Stain Removal for All Types of Ruggs
You’ll clearly want to do all you can to avoid staining your treasured rug. But, with the best will in the world, accidents can and do happen, especially if you have a busy household, your rugs are in a high-traffic area, or you enjoy entertaining.
Equally, it may be that you have inherited (or even found) a heavily stained item. And, unfortunately, not all stains can be removed merely by washing your rug. Sometimes, stubborn marks such as coffee or wine may require special treatment.
Liquids such as wine can cause potentially permanent damage to rug fibres, while pet urine turns alkaline, leading to the bleeding of dye colours while leaving behind an unpleasant smell. The reality is that home-made remedies, from baking soda or vinegar to shampoos and bleach, while cheap, probably won’t be enough to shift the most lingering of blemishes.
If you’re not sure what you’re doing, you could well end up causing permanent damage. So, realistically, you’ll need a professional stain-removal service for your rugs.
All rugs are different and so need different, individual treatments. Only a specialist will know what your particular floor covering requires.
You could also consider a specialist stain protection treatment to seal your rug’s fibres and create a repellent. This means that water or oil-based liquids bead instead of penetrating the fibres, giving you time to mop up the spillage before there is any lasting damage.
