How To Get Rid Of Carpet Stains [2024]

Carpet stains are an unfortunate and inevitable part of life, but with the right techniques, you can minimise their effect and keep your carpets clean for longer. In this guide, we'll talk you through some key steps to help minimise the effects of several common household carpet stains.

Firstly, we always recommend that you call in the professionals at A-Jet Services to attempt stain treatments. We can’t ensure our stain treatment will be as effective as it could be, if you’ve already tried over the counter treatments or home remedies. In fact, this could damage your carpet more.


Step 1: Act Quickly

When a spill occurs, time is of the essence. The sooner you act, the easier it will be to prevent the spill from turning into a permanent stain. Grab a spoon or a butter knife to gently scrape off any excess solids. Next, use a clean, colourless absorbent cloth to dab the area to absorb as much moisture as you can. Start from the outer edge of the stain and work your way inwards towards the centre. This will help avoid spreading it further. Remember to dab the carpet only. Never rub the carpet as this can damage the carpet fibres.


Step 2: Keep the stain damp

Put a damp colourless cloth on the stain and call the professionals at A-Jet Services.

Step 3: Don’t try to remove stains yourself

It may seem cheaper to buy over-the-counter products or use home remedies to remove stains. A word of warning though; this can make professional stain treatments challenging as our products may react with the solution you’ve applied. This may result in further damage and cost you more in the long term!


How to get rid of coffee stains:

It’s a typical Monday morning and grabbing a coffee before heading off to work. You haven’t fully woken up yet and, oh no, your coffee ends up on the carpet! What do you do now? To avoid a Monday morning disaster, quickly dab up as much of the coffee stain as possible using a clean, colourless absorbent cloth. Put a damp colourless cloth on the stain and call the professionals at A-Jet Services.

How to get rid of blood stains:

Blood stains are challenging to uplift as blood can seep deep into the carpet fibres. Dab the stain with a clean, colourless absorbent cloth until you’ve absorbed as much of the fluid as possible. Put a damp colourless cloth on the stain and call the professionals at A-Jet Services.


How to get rid of urine stains:

We understand that accidents can happen, and we’re happy to help if they do. If not managed correctly urine will not only cause unsightly stains and marks but can also leave an unpleasant odour. It may also seep through the carpet and underlay into the subfloor, making it even more difficult to get rid of! That’s why it’s best to act quickly to minimise damage. Use a clean, colourless absorbent cloth to dab the urine until you’ve absorbed as much of the fluid as possible. Put a damp colourless cloth on the stain and call the professionals at A-Jet Services.

Did you know sometimes stains can reappear? This is called ‘wicking’ and is quite common, particularly after you’ve had a professional carpet cleaning or stain treatment. If this happens the area will need to be cleaned again. The best way to avoid wicking is to clean up spills immediately after they happen to prevent them from soaking into the depths of the carpet. Then call the experts at A-Jet Carpet Cleaning. They have the right equipment and training to remove stains from your carpet.
