Blood, Oil, Grease, Chocolate, Ink, Coffee, Red Wine? Removing Unknown Stains from Upholstery and Carpet in Pasadena CA

The unknown can stir anxiety no matter the situation. But when it comes to upholstery and carpet stains, trying to remove stains that you have no clue what they are, can be difficult to say the least. Any solution used could remove the stain, or set it in more; so making it difficult if not impossible to remove, even on a professional level. If you do not know what it is, the better solution is to allow Steam Green Carpet Cleaning to give the carpet or upholstery a deep steam cleaning using top of the line detergents, state of the art equipment, and trained experts to tend to the dreaded unknown stain.

If you are insistent on trying to remove the stain yourself, below are a few tips to try and get the stain out. Always try any home remedy solution, or commercial chemical in an inconspicuous area first to ensure it will not compromise the fibers or color.
1. Dry Cleaning Solvent – Obtain a dry cleaning solvent and follow label’s instructions. Blot at the stain. If this doesn’t remove the stain, allow the solvent to completely air dry before attempting a different method.
2. Vinegar Solution – Mix together in a bucket or spray bottle – 2 cups of cool water, 1 Tbsp. dish washing liquid, and 1 Tbsp. vinegar. Ensure the solution is well mixed. Apply the mixture, and allow to set. Using rubbing alcohol from a cotton ball, gently rub in circular patterns. If stain persists, gently rinse solution away using a clean cloth and cool water, and allow to dry thoroughly before attempting a different method.
3. Ammonia Solution – In a bucket or spray bottle, mix together 2 cups cool water, 1 Tbsp. dish washing liquid, and 1 Tbsp. ammonia. Using a clean damp cloth, blot at the stain. If pressure is needed, use circular patterns in a gentle rubbing fashion. If this solution is unsuccessful, thoroughly rinse the area with cool water, blot dry, and ensure the area is completely dry before attempting a different method.
4. Hydrogen Peroxide – Using 3% hydrogen peroxide, arm yourself with an eye dropper, and apply a few drops of peroxide to the area in question. Blot up the stain. If stain remains, thoroughly rinse and dry the area.
