Carpet Cleaning Tips

The key to cleaning carpet stains is to act immediately. The longer you wait to remove carpet stains, the more time the stain has to set or to further embed itself into the carpet fibers. When cleaning carpet stains, always blot a wet stain. Rubbing not only causes the stain to spread and penetrate deeper into the carpet fibers, but also weakens the carpet fibers and may create a worn area. If a spot is dry, loosen then vacuum the excess dirt away prior to moistening it. If your stain disappears and comes back again, your carpet is a victim of "wicking." (Wicking is when liquid that has pooled around the bottom of a carpet works its way back up the fibers to the top.) To prevent this, cover the stain with a thick towel and weigh down with a heavy object such as a book or a brick. If wicking does occur, spray the spot with Bio-OX Citrus Concentrate. Bio-OX penetrates deep into the fibers of the carpet to remove the stain and odors that occur with wicking.

If you are trying to remove a difficult stain from your carpet, and the first treatment fails, let the carpet dry before you try something else. You'll have a better idea how much of the stain remains once the carpet is dry. Be aware that not every stain can be removed. Also, when taking out stains, always use a white cloth to prevent color transfer and thoroughly rinse the cleaned area since excess cleaning products may cause the area to attract soil.

Remember to always test a cleaning product in an inconspicuous spot first.

Try using either rubbing alcohol or a non-oily hairspray as your stain removing agent. Apply a small amount at a time and blot with a clean, white, absorbent cloth between applications. If the stain is not deep into the carpet, an alternative is to snip away the stained edges with fine manicure scissors or a razor blade. Use tweezers to pull out the severely stained fibers and discard. Remove clean carpet strands from another, hidden area in the room. Apply glue to the stained area, and press the clean fibers into the spot. Press the area with a heavy object for several days before walking on it.

Hair Dye
Unfortunately, hair dye can rarely be thoroughly removed from carpet as it permanently alters the carpet's color. However, there are several steps you can try. First, try blotting the stain with rubbing alcohol. If that doesn't work, try applying a heavy duty dilution or two of Bio-OX Citrus Concentrate to the offending area. Allow the bubbles to penetrate the stain for about 10 minutes. Using a clean, white, absorbent cloth, blot out excess liquid, pressing down firmly (do not rub) for 30 seconds. Repeat this blotting process until the area is dry. Place a clean, white, absorbent cloth and a couple of heavy books on top of the spot to absorb moisture. Leave overnight, then vacuum as usual.

Kool-Aid, Gatorade and Jell-O
The dyes in Kool-Aid, Gatorade, Jell-O and similar products generally result in a permanent stain. However, you can still try to remove the stain. Try saturating the stain with a dilution of Bio-OX Citrus Concentrate. Let sit for 5 minutes. Using a clean, white, absorbent cloth, blot out excess liquid, pressing down firmly (do not rub) for 30 seconds. Repeat this blotting process until the area is dry. Place a clean, white, absorbent cloth and a couple of heavy books on top of the spot to absorb moisture. Leave overnight, then vacuum as usual. Repeat the process if necessary. Another option to try on a Kool-Aid, Gatorade or Jell-O carpet stain is to put some clear, non-sudsy household ammonia in a clean spray bottle. Take a clean, white, absorbent cloth and dampen it with water. Heat your iron on Medium-High. Spray the stain with the ammonia. Place the dampened cloth over the stain. Iron the cloth over the stained area. Make sure you keep your face away from the ammonia fumes. Spray the stain again as needed and donít let the cloth dry out. The dye should lift into the cloth. Always blot carpet stains; don't rub them, so as not to damage the carpet fibers. Work the stain from the outside in, so as not to spread the stain any further.
Milk
Liquids can saturate carpet well beyond the surface area that can effectively be cleaned. It is extremely difficult to remove all of the liquid from the carpet fibers, carpet backing and padding underneath, thereby creating ideal conditions for bacteria and mold growth (and thus malodors). However, you might not be ready to replace your carpet just yet, so here are a few things you can do to eliminate the odor. First, blot up as much of the liquid as possible with a clean, white, absorbent cloth. Simply spray a dilution of Bio-OX Citrus Concentrate on the soiled area. Allow it to penetrate for approximately 5 minutes. Using a clean, white, absorbent cloth, blot out excess liquid, pressing down firmly (do not rub) for 30 seconds. Repeat this blotting process until the area is dry. If the stain or odor persists, repeat the process. Place a clean, white, absorbent cloth and a couple of heavy books on top of the spot to absorb moisture. Leave overnight, then vacuum as usual. Always blot carpet stains; don't rub them, so as not to damage the carpet fibers. Work the stain from the outside in, so as not to spread the stain any further.
Musty Smell
To remove musty smells from your carpeting, simply spray a dilution of Bio-OX Citrus Concentrate on the soiled area, which will penetrate into the carpet. Allow it to penetrate for approximately 5 minutes. Using a clean, white, absorbent cloth, blot out excess liquid, pressing down firmly (do not rub) for 30 seconds.

Oil
To remove oily carpet stains, you'll first need to absorb the oil. Baking soda and cornstarch work best, but corn meal, baby powder or talcum powders also can do the trick. First sprinkle the powder liberally onto the stain and leave overnight. The next day, vacuum the powder. Repeat if necessary. To remove the stain and odors, spray the stain with a dilution of Bio-OX Citrus Concentrate. Allow 5-10 minutes for the bubbles to penetrate the stain. Using a clean, white, absorbent cloth, blot out excess liquid, pressing down firmly (do not rub) for 30 seconds. Repeat this blotting process until the area is dry. If the stain or odor persists, repeat the process. Place a clean, white, absorbent cloth and a couple of heavy books on top of the spot to absorb moisture. Leave overnight, then vacuum as usual.

Permanent Marker
To remove permanent marker from carpet, first thoroughly vacuum the area to remove any loose dirt or dust from the stain. Try using either rubbing alcohol or a non-oily hairspray as your stain removing agent. Apply a small amount at a time and blot with a clean, white, absorbent cloth between applications. Unfortunately, it is not called "permanent" marker for no reason, and depending on how fresh the stain is, this may not remove the stain completely and you may be stuck with the stain. If the stain is not deep into the carpet, an alternative is to snip away the stained edges with fine manicure scissors or a razor blade. Use tweezers to pull out the severely stained fibers and discard. Remove clean carpet strands from another, hidden area in the room. Apply glue to the stained area, and press the clean fibers into the spot. Press the area with a heavy object for several days before walking on it. Always blot carpet stains; don't rub them, so as not to damage the carpet fibers. Work the stain from the outside in, so as not to spread the stain any further.

If any stain remains from the coloring in the toothpaste, allow the stain to dry, then apply dry-cleaning fluid. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Urine

Replace the paper towels if they become saturated.
