Whether you’ve stained your carpet by spilling a glass of red wine, food, or some acrylic paint, cleaning your carpets thoroughly to get the stain off and keep the carpets looking as good as new is essential. However, at Klean DryZ, we’ve seen a lot of homeowners inadvertently make a few mistakes when trying to remove stains from their carpet. These errors have either made the already stubborn stain permanent or have damaged the carpet. To help you steer clear of such mistakes and get rid of the stain using the most effective methods, we’ve compiled a list of the most common mistakes people make when something spills on the carpet. 

1. Using the wrong cleaner 
One of the most common mistakes people make when trying to get rid of strains on their carpets is using the wrong type of cleaner when making an attempt to clean it. Once the wrong cleaner, such as dish soap or laundry cleaning agent, is used, there’s no turning back as the stain gets locked in. Remember, it’s safest to use a mixture of hot water, baking soda, and vinegar. Use a cloth to soak it up and wipe the stain. 

2. Not reading the cleaning product label
If you decide to use a cleaning agent, don’t forget to read the product label. Check if the product can be used on carpets. It’s best to avoid bleaching products, especially the ones that contain peroxide, as they could be harsh on the carpet and damage it.

3. Waiting too long to clean the strain
If you wait too long to remove the stain, it’ll become permanent, and then no matter what you do, it won’t budge. Whether you’ve spilled some paints or some food on your carpet, clean it up immediately.

4. Assuming that cleaning the carpet will ruin the material
Many homeowners believe the myth that cleaning the carpet will dull or ruin the material and end up leaving the stain as is. If you use a gentle cleaning solution and the right cleaning method, the carpet won’t get damaged.
