How to Remove Carpet Stains

Oops! Whether it's wine, an accident from the family pet, or artwork paint from your kids, it seems impossible to keep your carpets clean. Here are some tips from the experts at Snyder's Flooring on how to keep your carpets looking great.

Before You StartCarpet Stain Solutions

To remove a stain, simply blot to dry the spot, working from the outside in.  Rinse thoroughly with clean water, then blot again. Never scrub the spot!  You run the risk of ruining the carpet fibers or letting the spill soak through to the carpet pad. Try to identify the type of stain you are dealing with, whether it be a water-soluble stain or a special water-soluble stain.

Water-Soluble Stains include:

  • alcoholic beverages
  • soda
  • food dyes
  • gravy
  • ice cream
  • jelly
  • milk
  • mud
  • washable ink
  • paint

Special Water-Soluble Stains include:

  • blood
  • chocolate
  • coffee
  • mustard
  • tea
  • vomit
  • wine

There are homemade carpet cleaning solutions you can try, but they seldom remove the stain entirely. We recommend using HOST Dry Carpet Cleaning. HOST is the environmentally preferred carpet cleaning system that deep cleans your carpet and reduces dust mites and mold, leaving it fresh, clean, dry and ready to use. Made from 100% plant-based resources and a little bit of water, HOST is an easy, effective, safe, and green carpet cleaner. HOST Dry Carpet Cleaning products are featured in our store.  Come see us in Westmoreland-  just minutes from Utica, New Hartford, Clinton and Rome.                Click here for directions.

Where to Start?

Are you ready to shop for a new floor? Snyder's Flooring can guide you through the process. Thinking about what you like and how it fits in with what your floor needs is the first step.  Ask yourself the following questions to better understand what you need from your new floor:

  • How do you use the room most?
  • What types of activities are common in this room?
  • What is the size of the room?
  • What's the feel of the room? Casual? Formal? Somewhere in between?
  • Will people have food in this room?
  • Will kids play in this room?
  • Do you have indoor pets?
  • Are you living with this new flooring or planning to sell your home?

You might not have all the answers, but the better prepared you are, the easier it will be to select the best flooring for your home. Factors such as aesthetics, logistics and expectations for each room in your home will influence your decision.  We have the expertise and selection to help you make the best flooring choices.
