Without a doubt, one of the scariest things that can happen to our carpets is spilling red wine. The moment that glass topples over alarms start to sound in our heads and we panic trying to get the stain out. There will be profanities spoken and there is every possibility of the horrific moment ending in tears.
Some of us will go to such lengths as to replace the whole carpet or re-arrange the furniture to cover up the stain.
The fact of the matter is you don’t have to resort to these drastic measures, nor do you have to break the bank to buy expensive products for carpet cleaning. Everything you need to successfully remove a red wine spill from your carpet is likely already sitting in your home.
We’ve already established that you’re a red wine drinker, so chances are you also have a bottle of white wine chilling in the fridge or lying in a rack somewhere in the house.
“Why is that important?” You might ask. Well, we’re going to use it to clean up the red wine of course! No, I’m not crazy…I promise!
You can actually use a small amount of white wine to dilute the dark colour of the red wine, reducing the chances of it staining the carpet. The sooner you act, the easier it will be to tackle the spill.
Once you’ve diluted the red wine, use paper towels or a clean cloth to blot the area. Remember never to scrub at a spillage because it will only spread, making it worse.
Salt can also be used to absorb any remaining residue. Just pour over the stain and leave it for a few minutes.
There are a number of clever methods for removing stains on a carpet, but for a thorough carpet cleaning it is recommended that you hire a professional carpet cleaner at least once or twice a year, depending on the level of foot traffic the carpets receive.
For the best results and to prolong the life of your carpet you can approach a carpet cleaning company London that provides carpet cleaning services at an affordable rate.
