When a spot or stain occurs, first and foremost, ACT QUICKLY! The longer a spot or stain remains in the carpet or upholstery, the harder it is to get out.
Use clean, white towels and blot the stain to absorb as much liquid or scrape up as much solid material as you can. Don't over scrub.
Apply the appropriate spot remover as directed for each type of stain.
Always work toward the center of the spot when cleaning.
Repeat steps, if necessary, and always blot between steps with a clean white towel.
ALWAYS DO A TEST SPOT REMOVAL on a portion of carpet or upholstery that is not normally visible. Be careful not to scrub too hard or over wet.
NEVER USE BLEACH. If you have any doubts or an encounter a difficult stain, call us at (925) 833-0480 or (510) 745-8245 for professional service. That's what we're here for!
