Removing red stains from carpet – Creaming soda

0 Comment

Today we were asked to remove a red stain from a bedroom carpet. This particular stain was about three months old. The reason why It was left for three months is common issue we come across. The teenager of the house spilt a softdrink (creaming soda) and not wanting to get into trouble, decided to change his room around and hide the stain under the furniture.

The earlier a stain is addressed the better chance for full removal. Not being treated for three months does make it a little more difficult to remove. On the plus side the customer didn’t use any store bought cleaners which can sometimes set the stain and make red stain removal impossible.

Now this stain we managed to remove about 90 percent of the red colouring and customer was very happy. We manage to turn a dark red stain in the middle of the walkway into a very light mark that is hardly noticable.
