DIY Carpet Stain Removers – Fact or Fiction?

There have recently been several crazes sweeping through the internet of people attempting various DIY carpet stain removers.  In many of the videos, the process seems pretty straight forward – simply mix your solution, apply it to the stained carpets and voila! No more stains.

Is it really this simple though?

What a lot of people don’t realise when watching these videos is that the majority of the stains are fresh stains, not pre-existing ones.  This means that the majority of these magical DIY carpet stain removers will indeed work.  But how do they fare against a well-ingrained stain that has been around for a long time?

To save you a lot of time and even money, we’ll get straight to the point. If your carpets are stained from juice, coffee or wine, and the stain has had a chance to dry, the chances of you getting your carpets back to pre-stain condition with a DIY solution are extremely low. This is because the stain has dried and essentially mixed itself in with the carpet fibres.

What to do if you spill something on your carpets?

If you’ve had an accident which has resulted in coffee, juice or even wine landing on your carpet, the first thing to do would be to absorb the liquid.  Using high-absorbent paper towel, place a couple of sheets on top of the stain and pat it softly.  Avoid rubbing and forcing the stain out as this will only make things worse.

Once you’ve tried absorbing the liquid with the paper towel, you can then attempt your favourite DIY method. With any DIY method, we first recommend trying it out on a small, hidden spot of carpet (just to make sure it doesn’t react unfavourably). A popular DIY carpet stain removal method is mixing white vinegar with bicarb. Again, if you do this, PLEASE test this out on a small, inconspicuous spot first. Wizard Tile & Grout Cleaning W.A.™ cannot take responsibility for any stains caused by DIY stain removers.

Still not working?

Generally speaking, if you get to the stain quick enough (before it dries), you’ll have a high chance of removing it yourself. If, however, you haven’t been successful in removing the stain, we recommend calling in the carpet cleaning professionals.

Carpet steam cleaning is an extremely effective way of removing carpet stains. Through the use of hot water extraction, even some of your oldest stains will have a high chance of being removed.
