Maintaining the cleanliness of your beautiful carpet is not that simple. It’s impossible not to stain it. However, you should not worry since you can still get rid of unexpected and tough stains such as pet urine, paint, or blood.  

Aside from calling a professional carpet cleaning Boston company, here are a couple of things you can do to get rid of the most common carpet stains: 

Alcoholic Beverages, Food, Dyes, or Cola 

You should try a stain remover that you can purchase in a store or create your own solution by mixing water and vinegar. A professional carpet cleaning company can also help get rid of these stains.  

Washable Ink or Latex Paint 

You should try using a solution by mixing 32 ounces of water and ¼ tsp. of white vinegar. Apply a small amount of this mixture to the affected area at a time. Repeat the process if needed. 

Coffee 

The first thing you should do is to absorb the moisture from the carpet. You should do this by blotting. Do not rub it. After the moisture is completely gone, the next thing you should do is to create a solution by mixing ¼ cup of bleach and 1 and ¼ cups of water. Apply the mixture in the affected area and rinse it using warm water. If you’re worried that the bleach might discolor your carpet, contact a professional carpet cleaner right away.  

Glue 

You need rubbing alcohol and cotton ball. Press the rubbing alcohol onto the affected area using the cotton ball. You should be able to get rid of the glue with clean cloth if the glue is wet.  

Wax, Gum, Fat, or Oil 

For wax or gum, freeze it first by placing ice over it. Once it freezes, you can utilize a spoon or knife to get rid of the gum or wax. Use a vacuum cleaner to get rid of small pieces. For different forms of oil, wax, or fat, place a paper towel over the affected area. After that, place the iron on top of it. This will help get rid of the stain. 

WaterSoluble Stains 

These types of stains include vomit, wine, or chocolate. You can try a solution by mixing 1 part of chlorine bleach with 5 parts of water or 1 tbsp. of ammonia with 1 cup of water. Remember that bleach might damage your carpet. Thus, you should test the solution first in a tiny spot. You should only utilize water and gentle soap if you’ve got a wool-blend carpet.  

Pet Stains 

The first thing you should do is to get rid of the solid waste. After that, blot the affected area right away. You should not smear or scrub the affected area. Also, you can buy a carpet cleaning solution for pet stains. You can also use a solution by mixing water and vinegar followed by baking soda.  

Keep in mind that the odor coming from the pet stain might stay. To get rid of this, you need to hire a professional carpet cleaner.
