Treating food Spills on rugs

Treating food Spills on rugs


Its our duty to keep rugs clean and dirt free to avoid dirt build up we recommend vacuuming your rug at least twice a week this will give your rug a great appearance and will keep dirt and harmful pathogens at bay.Although these methods are ineffective in dealing with stains that we sometimes cannot avoid how ever hard we try. In these situations its best to act as soon as a spill occurs in order to not let it set. We all know spills can cause stains but it can also cause bad odours and in some causes colour fading, removing food stains is very easy compared to the removal of sticky stains like grease for example.



My first advice is don’t let the food spill dry this means act effectively and immediately blot the food stain with a white Terry towel and water and if you have a mild detergent use a tiny amount  blotting the stained area the blotting again with water.  I would advise you wait for and hour and continue again after and hour and when the stain looks to have been removed call Aura Carpet Cleaning and we can access the type of stain and use the relevant products to remove it. Never head straight for the harsh kitchen sink chemicals as although they may even seem to have got the stain out they are a major player in fading, discoloring damaging the backing of rugs and carpets.

This may not show up until the next time you get your rug or carpets cleaning and then show up in patches all over the place this is common in the carpet cleaning industry. Your carpets and rugs cost allot of money don’t destroy them with these harsh chemicals for what may not even be short term gains

Stain removal


Successfully removing stains from carpets depends on the carpet cleaners ability to analyze the stain, identify the carpet fibre and carpet construction, choose the appropriate product and apply it correctly. Without this knowledge, stain removal will always be hit and miss and could cause permanent damage to the carpet fibre or set the stain at Aura Carpet Cleaning Bristol our Carpet and Upholstery cleaners have been trained to deal with these matters and can deal with stains on carpets and upholstery accordingly.

So to start at Aura Carpet Cleaning Bristol we like to find out as much about the stain as possible the more the you can tell us about the stain the better. Our first step in the identification process is to decide whether the stain is permanent, as with strong dyes such as hair colorants, old urine stains,and many hardened stains from paint, varnish and adhesive spillages.

the nature of the carpet is also an important factor when deciding if the stain is permanent. Pale wool fibres will take in dyes and colouring from food and drink far more easily than synthetic fibres on the other hand, a large oily spillage synthetic fibre will be very difficult to remove because synthetics absorb oil more easily

The next step we use is to ascertain whether  the stain is water soluble or solvent soluble. Solvents will not remove water_based stains such as drinks, while water based stain removers will have little or no effect on greasy oily stains. some stains, because they have left both water-soluble and oily residue even a residual dye stain may require several different stain removal products used in the correct order

we also test the PH of the the stain with a PH meter. if the stain is acidic, it should be treated with an alkaline product and vice versa for the best advice and stain removal procedures always choose a reputable carpet cleaning company trained to deal with these matters like Aura Carpet Cleaning Bristol
