Removing Water Stains From Carpet (Easier Than You Think)

Although water is used for a lot of cleaning projects, it can leave behind stains of its own that are unpleasant. Water stains on your carpet can make your carpet look horrible. Luckily, we know how to easily remove water stain from your carpet.

If you see these kinds of stains on your carpet, you have to tackle them with a cleaning solution that is powerful. Below we will show you removing water stains from carpet hacks to restore your carpet.

Get Your Supplies

The first step in removing stains from your carpet is pouring a cup of water into an empty spray bottle with ¼ teaspoon of a mild dish detergent. Let the detergent absorb into the water. This mixture gives you a very powerful solution for most stubborn stains on carpeting. It includes stains that relate to moisture and dirt.

The Simple Steps

Spray this solution onto a soft, dry cloth, holding the several inches over the cloth and let the liquid mist softly over the fibers. Hold the bottle over the cloth, several inches above it, and let the liquid softly mist onto the fibers. You do not want cloth that is over saturated, as this can make your problem worse.

Gently but quickly dab the water carpet stain with the cloth, letting the stain absorb the liquid and start to break up. Once the stain starts loosening, dab it with a dry section of the cloth. Do not rub it at any time, as this can spread it. Keep dabbing until the stain is gone.

Take a second clean cloth and dampen it with water, then dab your carpet again to get rid of the detergent that was left behind. Use your spray bottle for best results to mist clean water on the cloth, then start dabbing the carpet until the fibers are clean without soaking them.

Finishing Up

Now you can dry the carpet. To make sure you get all the moisture up, put a stack of absorbent paper towels on the damp spot and then put a heavy

object like a small piece of furniture or a vacuum cleaner over the towels to weigh them down. Leave it like this overnight.

Lastly, sprinkle baking soda over the stain to absorb any moisture that is lingering and can resurface. This also restores a pleasant aroma to the carpet. Wait for about two to three hours, and then vacuum the area to get all the baking powder up from the carpet.

Doing these simple steps should help in removing water stains from carpet. It will not only help get the stain out, but also give your carpet a fresh, clean look and smell again. DYW Carpet Cleaning professionals have years of experience to help with carpet cleaning spills.
