What You Should Do After Spilling Coffee on Your Rug or Carpet

The right cup of coffee can help perfect any morning and give you a boost to start your day—but your morning can quickly turn sour if that coffee ends up on your rug or carpeting. The good news is that you can help minimize any staining between professional carpet cleanings in Tampa.

Use a clean, dry cloth to blot up as much of the coffee as possible. Do not rub the stain—this will only push the liquid further into the carpet fibers. When you have removed as much of the liquid as you can, use a mild cleanser—such as liquid dish soap mixed with white vinegar and warm water—to clean the stain. Be sure to use another clean cloth to do this. Next, use a third dry cloth to blot the cleanser off of the carpet, rinse the area with cool water, and then allow it to dry. The next time your professional carpet cleaners visit your home for your annual carpet cleaning, they will be able to perform carpet stain removal services on the area to eliminate any remaining stain from your carpeting.
