Especially when temperatures are cold, passionate coffee drinkers have a tendency to reach for the warm soothing and stimulating cup of a fresh brew most mornings. No matter if prefer a cup or two, or three to get you started in the morning, or sip on the delicious beverage all day, the likelihood of the cup landing on your carpets is very possible. Even if you are in a rush, react immediately should a coffee spill occur on your carpets. It will only make it harder to remove later, and the risk of odors to develop will only increase the longer the coffee is allowed to seep into the carpeting. To help you effectively remove coffee stain on the carpets, we at Heart of Texas ChemDry would like to share the appropriate steps.
Immediately Treat Coffee Spill
By using a clean cloth or a paper towel, blot up as much of the liquid as possible. This helps contain the spill and prevent it from spreading outwardly as you start your blotting sequence by working the outer rim and work towards the center. Moderately dampen the area with a damp cloth or spray bottle and blot as you would a fresh spill in the event the coffee stain is old.
Prepare & Apply Homemade Carpet Cleaner
Without using hot water, combine 2 cups warm water, 1 tsp of white vinegar, and 1 tsp of liquid dish soap in a squirt bottle or bucket. Either spray down the spot or sponge the mixture on to the stain. With a dry cloth, blot in between applications to control moisture exposure, and repeat until the spill is lifted.
Resist Scrubbing & Rubbing Carpet Techniques
When you tend to the coffee spill, do not attack the spot and attempt to treat it by rubbing and scrubbing. Doing this will push the coffee down deeper into the carpet padding, encourage the fibers absorb more coffee, and spread the coffee out wider.
Treat Remaining Stain Residues on Carpet
In the event the coffee stains only lighten with the above method, you can try combining baking soda and water. Until the consistency is that of toothpaste, pour a few drops at a time to about a ½ cup of baking soda. Apply the mixture to the coffee stain and let it dry. Any lingering odors should be removed along with the stain as once the baking soda is completely dried and vacuumed.
