The best advice I have ever gotten was from a client who had her carpets cleaned and passed on to me information given to her by the person cleaning her carpet. ( I love that person !!! Ha~Ha ) She had some type of juice stain on her carpet and the person proceeded to tell her to take water and let it sit for a moment and then use her wet-vac and vac the area and this stain would come out.
Is it possible to use plain old water and a wet-vac to take stains out of our carpets? Is it REALLY that easy? I didn’t think it was possible.... but it is TRUE! It works!
Now when I have a spill, mark on my carpet, or the dreaded dog accident, I don’t panic. I just SCIM the top (of the above mentioned) with my vac and then add a water to the area and let it sit for a second ( or minute ?) and then
suck it up with my wet-vac. I haven’t been disappointed YET! The only two times I have ever had to have a little help was from blood and stain from the dye from a coke container box. And for that added problem I used a product that is heaven sent also. It is a carpet cleaner called “Spot Shot.” I knew if it would take out a stain that was months old, which was non-latex paint on carpet, that it could take out ANYTHING! lol (Mind you this was NOT my carpet, thank goodness!!!! ) I didn’t take chances with the blood or dye, so I used the carpet cleaner and let it sit overnight and then used the water and wet-vac to suck up the stain. It TOTALLY disappeared.
My husband is STILL amazed by my water and vac carpet clean-up!!! And I STILL LOVE THE CARPET PERSON WHO CHANGED MY WORLD FOREVER! Okay,,,,not that essential to life.... but I still thank him and my client every time I use this method.
I hope this helps any of you who have carpet woes at this moment. Don’t give up on “that” old stain. I can’t absolutely promise it will disappear... but it might!!!
Have a Wonderful Day!
