First line of defense

The best thing you can do to avoid stains and damage caused by heavy foot traffic is set up a strong first line of defense—namely, a welcome mat. A welcome mat is an inexpensive and simple way to help protect your floors. A mat is a great way to catch your guests’ attention and remind them to wipe their feet. Plus, during the holidays, a Christmas-themed mat can also be part of your décor and add warmth to your space.

Be prepared

As a professional carpet cleaning service, we have go-to products on hand that we can trust to deal with a variety of messes and stains. When prepping for holiday guests, you can also put together a basket of cleaning supplies for quick cleanup. Have carpet cleaner and a suitable brush or cloth on hand for cleaning up messes. When spills happen, a prompt response helps minimize damage. Plus, a quick cleanup helps eliminate any embarrassment your guest may feel for having spilled on your beautiful carpets.

Know how to clean up different types of stains

Different types of stains require different cleaning methods, so it’s important you know how to deal with each one.

  • Red wine: Red wine stains need to be neutralized. You can do this by using hydrogen peroxide, baking soda or club soda to clean up the spill. In a pinch, you can even use white wine as a neutralizer.
  • Food: Non-greasy foods can usually be cleaned up with a simple solution of liquid detergent and water.
  • Grease: Don’t rub these stains right away. First, sprinkle baking soda or cornstarch on the stain, let it stand a few minutes and then vacuum. Then, you can use water and liquid detergent to clean the area.
