removing stain from rug

Rug Stain Removal in Bellingham, Whatcom, Skagit & Island Counties.

A stain on your area rug can be permanent if not addressed immediately. Let’s be clear here, many products such as red wines, grape juices, food condiments like mustard, ketchup all have natural and synthetic dyes. Wool area rugs accept these dyes and they become part of the rug once those dyes are set. If you were to splash a glass of red wine or drip some mustard on a white blouse or shirt and immediately threw it in the washing machine, your odds are good for removal. It’s no different with your area rugs and stain removal. Once the stain is set, no rug cleaning procedure will remove it. Strong chemicals that mitigate rug stains cannot be used in the rug cleaning process; because, if they were, the dyes in your rug would lose luster and beauty.

What To Do With A Potential Rug Stain Spill?

water and coffee stain on rug
  • Do not use a carpet spotter on a natural fiber area rug such as wool, silk or cotton.
  • Grab a white cotton towel for blotting. Blot until you don’t see color transfer of the stain.
  • Apply a clean moist white cotton towel over the affected area.
  • Bring your rug to our wash plant immediately or utilize our pick-up services.
  • Once the stain is set your rug becomes a restoration project because rug cleaning will not remove natural or synthetic dyes.

They did a great job! Got out red wine, green ink, and the general nastiness that comes with having 2 small children and a cat. Would definitely recommend! :)

Steam Sweepers cleaned our very unique living room area rug and it looks brand new! The were even able to clean and "restore" the matted down area where my husband's shoes left stains. Will definitely use them again.
