SPILLED COFFEE ON THE CARPET? LEARN HOW TO DEAL WITH COFFEE STAINS

Morning for some people usually starts with a cup of coffee. People who are fond of coffee don’t skip to have a cup of it whether they are at home or the office. The fragrance of coffee beans is such a pleasure for coffee lovers. If you are one of the coffee lovers then you must be knowing the benefits of caffeine and the pleasure in every sip of the coffee. 

 

But many of us do have an unpleasant experience of spilling that freshly brewed cup of coffee on our bed, carpet, upholstery, or clothes. Spilling coffee on the home or office carpet accidentally is one of the worst experiences one can face, especially if you are in hurry.

 

Coffee stains can be really stubborn, so don’t scrub the spilled coffee furiously with a wet cloth rather learn the ways how to handle the freshly and old coffee stains on your carpets.  There are reliable ways that can help you to remove the stains out of the carpets and rugs so continue reading to know the insights of how to act when you spill the coffee.

 

Spilled coffee? For fresh coffee stains, you need to act fast!

  • Blot, don’t rub

If you have accidentally spilled coffee on the carpet flooring, you need to act fast. The freshly spilled coffee spot stays wet for a few seconds, so quickly apply paper towels or a microfiber cloth to absorb the spilled coffee. 

 

Don’t make the mistake to rub the spot as rubbing will spread the coffee stain and spilled coffee will get soaked deeper into the carpet fibers.

 

You can put some cold water to dilute the coffee and gently press the towel against the spot. Repeat the blotting process until the coffee is totally absorbed by the towel and there is no more colour transferred from the carpet to the towel. 

 

You can also take the help of the carpet cleaning Encinitas companies.
