New or Old, Dried Coffee, Milk & Cream Spills? Carpet Stain & Odor Removal Tips

Nothing can get you up and moving in the morning like that first cup of Joe. But despite our best efforts it’s inevitable that at some point while we are relaxing with that nice hot cup of brew, spills are going to happen. Being a seasoned coffee drinking you are probably used to the familiar brown ring-shaped stains sometimes left behind on newspapers, coffee tables, kitchen counters and occasionally your carpets and area rugs. Newspapers can be thrown out and a quick wipe with kitchen cleaner and a paper towel takes care of the counter top, but what about treating a coffee stain on carpet? The professional carpet cleaning specialists at Steam Green Carpet Cleaning recommend acting quickly or the stain will soak into the carpet fibers and dry, setting and becoming much harder to treat. A quick but thorough clean is especially important if the coffee contained added milk or cream which can spoil causing odor and bacteria if left untreated. At Steam Green Carpet Cleaning, cleaning carpets is our specialty. Our steam clean carpet shampooing removes unhealthy dirt, bacteria, dust, pollutants and contaminants.

Steam Green Carpet Cleaning recommends the following coffee stain removal cleaning tips to help you maintain your carpet’s condition until our next scheduled visit.

Absorb the stain – The first step to cleaning any kind of liquid spill is absorb as much moisture as possible by blotting the stain, you may need to do this several times. The blotting action also helps keep the stain from spreading.

Clean – Fill a glass bowl with two cups of lukewarm water, add ¼ cup of lemon juice and a squirt of liquid dish detergent, stir gently to mix, and then moisten a clean household sponge with the cleaning solution. Squeeze and apply a small amount of solution to the stained carpet. Rub gently beginning at the outside of the stain and working towards the center. Continue until the entire stain is covered with the cleaning solution.
Rinse – Rinse with a small amount of clear, cool water in a spray bottle and blot up the excess moisture immediately. Remove as must moisture as possible and allow to air dry
