How to Remove Spots from Carpet? [DIY Methods]

  1. Start by removing any solids or excess spills from the surface of the carpet.
  2. Dampen the area with a small amount of water. Unless you are sure it won’t affect the stain, use lukewarm water instead of hot. If the site is extensive, fill a bucket with water and dab it on with a wet cloth. If the area is small, a spray bottle is sufficient.
  3. Use the appropriate cleaning/stain removal product to the spot.
  4. Make use of a clean, soft cloth or paper towel to blot the area by pressing gently on the stained area. As you implement it, you will see the stain transfer onto the towel.
  5. Turn the cloth frequently, so you are always utilising a clean portion of the towel.
  6. Reapply the stain remover and water as required. Continue to blot away until the stain removed.
  7. As soon as the stain is gone, rinse the area by spraying it with clean water and blotting it away.
  8. Press clean, dry cloths over the area to dry. Apply constant pressure until the move of the moisture is soaked up from the carpet fibres.
  9. Let the area air dry completely.
  10. If the cleaned area’s texture appears different after cleaning, vacuum it to bring back the original look.

DIY Spot and Stain Removal Tips & Guide

  • Whenever choosing stain removers, take into consideration the type of carpeting and the carpet colour.
  • Stay away from scrubbing or rubbing the carpet while cleaning. Thus, it may push the stain further into the carpet fibres. The scrubbing motion can damage the fibres, making the area noticeable even after removing the spots and stains.
