How to Remove Cranberry Juice and Wine from Carpet

How to Remove Cranberry Juice and Wine from Carpet?

This time of year always seems to see more family or friends around for a good home cooked meal. There are always spills that are bound to happen. Among the worse are wine and cranberry sauce. This is especially terrifying if you have white carpet. Anything red and juicy will soak into your carpet quicker than a sponge. When this happens, it's essential that you act quickly so that a stain doesn’t remain on the carpet. Nip Tuck Carpet Repair is your expert when it comes to all things carpet repair related. Here are some of the tips that we have picked up in the trade when it comes to acting fast against stains and when there are stains that you just can’t seem to get out.

Act Quickly!

There are several preventative measures that you can take when it comes to making sure that spills don’t stay on your carpet. Among the best things that you can do is to vacuum regularly. Stains tend to be hard to get out when there is dirt and dust in the fibers holding it in. It’s a little too late when the spill has already happened. The next step that you need to take needs to be done as quickly as possible after the spill. Here are the steps:

Step 1: You’ll want to go get and mix a tablespoon of liquid dish soap and two cups of cold water.

Step 2: Take a sponge or cloth and then dab the stain with the solution until it no longer absorbs into the cloth and the stain disappears.

If the stain isn’t going away then there are other solutions that you can try such as ammonia and warm water. You’ll want to make sure that it won’t damage your carpet by testing it in a small area first. Just remember that stains will more likely come out when you treat them right away.

When It's Too Late

If you have allowed the stain to sit for some time and have tried everything you could to get it to come out, you might have to take more drastic measures in order to get the stain out of your carpet. Our method has proven 100% effective of the time. We can perform a carpet patch in order to completely remove the stain and make it look like it never happened.
