Carpet Stain Removal

Spot and Stain Remover

We all know that carpet stain removal can be difficult and scrubbing at a carpet stain is a definite no, no!! We’ll explain why this is and also tell you why getting rid of stains like chocolate and beer is so hard to do.

Carpet Stain Removal For Chocolate

Chocolate is made up of a number of ingredients and typically contains oil, grease, cocoa, butter, colouring, sugar and milk.  So, guess what? A single carpet stain removal product is not going to get rid of it.

This is what you need to do to get rid of a chocolate stain on your carpet or upholstery:

  1. Scrape as much chocolate off as possible
  2. Apply Knight & Doyle Professional Spot & Stain Remover and blot the stain, do not rub
  3. Alkaline spotter and blot
  4. Apply Tannin spotter and blot
  5. Apply enzyme solution and blot
  6. Rinse with cool water and blot until dry

Carpet Stain Removal for Beer

Just like chocolate, beer is made up of several ingredients.  These ingredients include hops, malts, alcohol, albumins and tannins.  So, it is very unlikely that you will be able to fully remove the carpet stain using just one carpet stain removal product.

  1. Blot with a clean, preferably white towel or kitchen roll
  2. Apply Knight & Doyle Professional Spot & Stain Remover and blot, do not rub
  3. Apply Tannin spotter and blot
  4. Rinse with water and blot until dry

Never Rub At A Stain On Carpets Or Upholstery

Blotting a stain is the only thing to do. If you rub at a stain you run the risk of opening up the fibres and driving the stain deeper.  You can also cause the fibre to burst which will make the stained area look different to the rest of the carpet or fabric.  This means that even if you are lucky enough to get rid of the stain the distortion of the fibres will be noticeable, and this cannot be repaired.

Advice From Knight & Doyle Is Free

We are always happy to give free advice if you have had a spill on your carpet or furniture and recommend that you call us before you try to clean up the stain with an off-the-shelf product from the supermarket.  We say this because if you put the wrong kind of cleaner on your carpet or furniture fabric it is much more difficult for us professionals to treat. If not impossible.
