Spot & stain removal
Most stains and spots
can be removed following
the steps outlined below. For those tough
spots and stains that simply will not budge, call
J&S Cleaning Services. We have the tools and training to tackle
the tough ones! Of course with every carpet and upholstery cleaning,
the first step is to safely treat and remove spots and stains.
General spot & stain removal procedures
Spills and stains should be treated immediately. The longer a spot
remains, the more difficult it will be to remove. Remove solid
materials with a rounded tablespoon, spatula, or edge of a dull knife.
Blot up spills with clean, white, absorbent materials (towels, napkins,
tissues, etc). Work from the outer edge of the spot towards the center
to prevent rings. Keep blotting, and repeat as necessary.
*NOTE: ALWAYS PRETEST SPOT-REMOVAL
AGENTS in an inconspicuous area (under a sofa
cushion, on an area of carpet under or behind a piece
of furniture) by applying several drops of solution and
blotting gently with a clean white towel. If color transfers
to the cloth or a color change occurs, a professional
cleaner such as J&S Cleaning Services should be
consulted. If no color transfer occurs, apply the solution
again, wait half an hour to an hour, if possible, and
inspect for any damaging color changes.
Treat the stained area with the proper spotting solution until the stain
is removed. Do not over wet. Use small amounts of the cleaning
agents and blot frequently. Always blot, do not rub or brush. It may not
be necessary to complete the entire series of steps. The final step is
always to rinse carefully the area with water, and then absorb all the
remaining moisture with absorbent towels.
Be patient. Some stains respond slowly. All spots and stains cannot
be removed from every fabric due to differences in fibers, dyes,
constructions, finishes, composition of the stain, length of time the
stain has remained on the article, etc.
Remember, for those stubborn stains, contact your professional
carpet and upholstery cleaner, J&S Cleaning Services.
