How to Remove Christmas Tree Sap & Water Stains From Santa Monica CA Home Carpets. Besides calling Steam Green Carpet Cleaning Of Course!

The winter season is a fun time of year for many people. The lights and music and of course the decorations. If you go to most homes in the United States you are going to find a Christmas tree. This is a staple of the season and a symbol of the Christmas celebration! Some people choose to buy a tree from the store and set it up each year. Others choose to go out and cut down their own or go to a tree lot and pick one out that has already been cut for them. This is a fun past time for many families to go out together and look for the perfect tree for their home. One thing that is the same with any live tree is they are a pain to clean up after.

Steam Green Carpet Cleaning has some tips for protecting your carpets from Christmas trees this year.

There are really three main things that cause trouble throughout the season and they are sap, pine needles and water damage. The sap will ooze and drip off the tree throughout the time that it is in the house but the time that is most concerning is set up and take down. Before you set up a real live Christmas tree you have to saw off the bottom ring of it to ensure that when it is watered it will be able to soak it up. This is the part that all of the sudden the sap can be abundant. If you choose to do this part indoors you need to be ready to cover the carpets. You can do this by laying out a tarp or plastic sheet to protect during set up. You can then easily roll it up and take it out with the mess attached. The next problem is the pine needles. The longer the tree is up in the house the more pine needles are going to fall. During set up and take down you should use the tarp or plastic sheet to cover the carpet and this will also catch the pine needles that will fall during this time. You also want to be sure that you have a large enough tree skirt to catch the needles that fall randomly. Also take time to remove the needles each day from the skirted area to stop them from getting into the carpet. Each day you are going to have to add some water to the tree stand and if this water gets on the carpet you may not notice. This can lead to mold growing so you want to be sure that you check the stand for leaks before you set it up. Also never overfill the stand so that you don’t have it leak over the top.
