Whatever the specific situation, your floors often end up taking quite a beating during a party. There's trash to dispose of, dishes to wash, and sometimes there are stains in your carpet that need to be cleaned. Maybe a careless guest spilled some wine, or dropped a meatball. Maybe your outdoor pet was accidentally let in the house. Maybe one of your guests brought mud in on a poorly-wiped shoe. Maybe you realize after the fact that the chocolate fountain should have been left in the kitchen instead of being set up in a carpeted room. |
Cleaning up after a party is usually a lot less fun than the party itself. The most glaring evidence of merrymaking is going to be stains and spills on your carpet. Your strategy? No procrastination. Learn how to enjoy the cleaning process.
But as with most battles, the key to victory is to think hard and act fast. So what are you waiting for? Once you notice any wet spots clean them up immediately, before they can do any more damage or the stain deepens. Clean it up A.S.A.P. before things get worse. Dry them up by blotting with an absorbent cloth or sponge. A homemade formula for alcohol, caffeine or tannin (from tea) stains is a mixture of water, white vinegar and mild dish detergent. Others find that adding ammonia to this mix works with darker stains, such as soft drink spills. Just remember, before applying any formula to your carpet, test it out first in a small, unseen or hard-to-see area before finally using it. Also, don't make the mistake of using bleach. This can damage the carpet or leave white stains, which most likely will be beyond repair.
In warfare, there is an ancient saying: "He with the biggest/most toys wins." Of course this also applies when it comes to carpet cleaning. Having the right equipment is half battle against stains, spills and dirt. A wet vacuum works best for wet or liquid spills, as well as messy food residue. Spot removal machines with a carpet cleaning solution help remove tougher stains. Even a small spray bottle will come in handy when targeting specific areas with cleaning solution.
Of course one of the most important part of cleanup is vacuuming, and maybe you even break out your preferred spot cleaner to try and attack some of those stains yourself. Unfortunately, tackling some stains on your own can be anywhere from difficult to impossible. For those situations, you need a professional carpet cleaner to come out and take care of the messes you can't handle on your own. If after all your hard work, there is still more work to be done. Or if you have admitted to yourself that you can't face the task all alone. Then it's time to call for backup. A professional carpet cleaning service will handle all your worries. They will clean up not only your party mess, but also all the accumulated dust and dirt in your carpet. Before you know it, your carpet will be as good as new, and ready for another celebration!
