Congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks, Super Bowl XLVIII Champions! The Seahawks made it through the Super Bowl and came out victorious did your carpets and upholstery? Super Bowl Sunday is akin to a national holiday. Parties are thrown with family and friends invited to share in the celebration and festivities of the big game. With all the decadent food and people in your home there are bound to be a few spills.
If your carpet did not survive the excitement of the big day don’t be tricked into thinking that new stain is a souvenir bound to stick around and remind you of the best Super Bowl in Seahawk history. There are many home remedies that can help you lift the stains out of your carpet and upholstery even the next day. The important thing is to treat a spill as soon as you discover it. A simple way to spot clean is to grab a clean dry cloth and blot to soak up as much of the stain as possible. Next apply a mild all-purpose carpet cleaner and let sit for about five minutes, be extra careful not to saturate the carpet. Too much moisture in a carpet can cause mold or bubbling of the carpet where it was saturated. When the cleaner has had sufficient time to work grab a new clean dry cloth and blot form the outside of the stain working in to the center. Do not rub the stain it can ruin carpet fibers. Rinse the stain to ensure all cleaner is out of the carpet and apply paper towels or another clean dry cloth and weight it down overnight to soak up any left behind moisture. When the carpet is dry it can be vacuumed to re-fluff the fibers. For a list of how to treat stains specifically take a look at our home remedies page.
