Red stains are every home owners nightmare. A friend and client once told us, “Merlot stains happen to the best of us. Or, rather, merlot stains happen to the worst of our guests!” Red wine stains are among the most difficult of all stains to get out, and they can permanently ruin and damage your carpets. Getting red stains out is the worst chore to have around the house, as it is almost impossible to get the stains out at all. The red dye buries itself deep into the fibers of your carpet, and as one of the most potent dyes and dark colors, its presence will remain long after the initial spill.
Red dye can be found in many products that are common in households across the country. Red wine is perhaps the most common, and most feared, of all red dye products. Consider the myriad of different red wine types: there is merlot, cabernet, malbec, syrah, zinfandel, grenache, pinot noir, cabernet franc, mourvedre and dessert wines. Some are darker red, and some are lighter red, but they all possess the potentness and trouble of a stain that will never go away. That is, unless you get the proper care.
Maricopa Carpet Cleaners are experts in wine. While we love to drink it at home, we tackle the worst red wine carpet stains that your home has with our knowledge of both the wines themselves and the residues they leave behind on the carpets. One of the most important things about red wine stains is understanding how to clean them.
If you attempt to clean your red wine stain on your own, you still may need to call a professional to take care of the rest of the stain to ensure that it goes away completely. Sometimes, stains can linger and stay in a carpet even after you give it your best cleaning effort. One thing you can do is immediately blot up the spill with a rag or a paper towel before it seeps in to the carpet fabric. The more liquid you can sop up, the better. You can also apply cold water to help dilute the liquid. Salt is another good idea: adding a generous amount of salt will help absorb some of the liquid. Other methods include using vinegar and hydrogen peroxide.
Keep in mind that wine is not the only red liquid that will cause a red stain to be left behind. Kool-aid is another red liquid that is known to cause troublesome stains that are difficult to remove. Red drinks of any sort, such as gatorade or other sports drinks, although less potent and strongly colored than wine, also can leave behind these red stains.
Blood is another red liquid that is near impossible to remove. We have the tools and expertise to remove these stains in their entirety.
While all of these methods may work to remove some of the stains, you are likely to still have a stain residue on your carpet. Hiring a professional cleaner from Maricopa Carpet Cleaners will be a sure way to help rid you of red stains is a sure fire way to ensure a clean, color free carpet.
