Recently at out North Carolina office there was a bit of an accident after a staff party. The carpets ended up getting stained very badly when a bunch of wine was spilled all over them. Luckily we hired a professional carpet cleaner and the stains were removed quite easily.
The company that we hired was a good and got the job done quickly. They does carpet cleaning in Huntersville, Mooresville and Davidson NC mainly. So if you are in need of those services then we can highly recommend him.
Before we hired a professional we had attempted to take care of it ourselves but it didn’t work out. We just didn’t have the correct tools and equipment so it actually ended up getting worse when we smeared the stain instead of blotting it like we should have.
A great tip that we learned was to vacuum waaay more often than we had been. Apparently it is optimal to vacuum at least 3 times a week or more in high traffic areas. We had been doing once a month maybe so lesson learned there. Also placing welcome mats is another thing that should be done to give people some incentive to wipe off their dirty shoes. And finally a sign asking people to remove their shoes is something that gives a bit of extra insurance as well.
If you happen to take action quickly you actually can get a stain out of carpet as well. What you need to do is blot it, not smear with vinegar or club soda and that will usually work.
Heres a cool video with some more tips if you ever find yourself in the situation of needing to clean your carpets.
