Carpet stains happen all the time!  Although we may try, we can’t prevent every spill.  Accidents are bound to happen, but luckily they’re no match for Chem-Dry of Annapolis’s expert carpet cleaning method.


Chem-Dry of Annapolis has a couple of tips to help you make sure stains don’t become permanent.  Here are some of our best tips!


#1 – Gently blot stains.


When you rub stains you can end up working them deeper into carpet fibers and making them harder to remove.  Try gently blotting them away instead.


#2 – Use club soda. 


By mixing equal parts club soda and vinegar in a spray bottle you can make your own spot treatment.


#3 – Try a lint roller. 


Lint rollers are a great tool to pick up hair and crumbs that the vacuum can miss.


#4 – Use hydrogen peroxide. 


Hydrogen peroxide is helpful to remove tough stains such as wine or blood.


#5 – Use a squeegee to remove pet hair. 


It might sound silly but a squeegee can be a great tool to remove pet hair from your carpets and furniture!


#6 – Use shaving cream.


When a stain appears, apply shaving cream directly on it.  Wait around 30 minutes and then scoop it away and rinse the area with diluted white vinegar.


#7 – Use dish soap on tough grease. 


If you have a grease stain try adding a few drops of dish soap to warm water.  This method can work well on grease!


#8 – Utilize area rugs and runners in high-traffic areas. 


One way you can protect high-traffic areas in your home is by placing area rugs over spots that get walked over often.


#9 – Keep up with annual pet urine odor removal. 


Have your carpets treated yearly to get rid of potent odor crystals that can be trapped deep in your carpet.


#10 – Have your carpets cleaned often. 


It is a good practice to have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year.
