Dealing with Carpet Stains

Dealing with stains

The key with any spillage is to act quickly - preferably the moment they occur. The sooner a spill is tackled, the better the chance of avoiding a stain.


  • Liquids should be soaked with clean white absorbent cloth, white kitchen roll or tissues 

  • Stains should be blotted and never rubbed 

  • Stains should be worked on from the outside in so as to avoid them spreading 

  • Solids should be scraped up 

  • The pile should be brushed up after cleaning 

  • Cleaning agent should be applied to a cloth and never directly to the spot. With polypropylene carpets, it is safe to use bleach to clean and remove stains from your carpet 

  • Stains should always be rinsed thoroughly with water afterwards if spot cleaners have been used, but never wet excessively. Use a hair dryer to dry the spot 

  • Only use a spot cleaner that is Woolsafe approved.

Follow these general rules below for dealing with spillages. For more persistent or unusual stains contact a professional carpet cleaner.

For Polypropylene, stain free, bleach cleanable carpets, take a look at the cleaning demo from Regency below.
