How to Remove Stains & Spills from Your Carpets & Upholstery
Accidental spills happen to the best of us over Christmas, which can sometimes leave stains behind that need to be tackled in the new year. If you’re struggling to get rid of these, consider using a carpet cleaner such as the Vax Platinum Power Max to remove stains from carpets and upholstery.
Not only will the Platinum Power Max Carpet Cleaner help you to eradicate spills and stains, it also cleans carpets 5 times better than a high performance vacuum cleaner^ – meaning your carpets will be left looking clean and smelling fresh.
Follow our tips to make sure you get the best results out of your Platinum Power Max when deep cleaning your carpets and tackling stubborn Christmas stains…
Clear the area thoroughly first
Clear the area of loose items which would stop your progress, so you can navigate quickly and easily around the area which is to be cleaned. Vacuuming up any surface debris before you wash your carpets will make the job much easier and will help to prevent your carpet cleaner from getting clogged.
Use the correct solution
It is important to use the right solution when you want to get rid of stains from your carpets and upholstery. We recommend using Vax’s Platinum Professional Solution, our best performing carpet cleaning solution which will deep clean your carpets, neutralise bad odours and remove tough stains.
Check a small area first
If you’ve never washed your carpets before or are using a new carpet cleaner or solution, it’s always best to try your carpet cleaner in a small, inconspicuous area first, just to check the unlikely possibility of the colour fastness of the carpet being affected by the solution or the carpet cleaner.
Pre-treat stains if possible
For the best results on carpets that are deeply stained or in high traffic areas such as hallways and landings, try applying a pre-treatment solution first. The Vax Platinum Power Max has a dedicated pre-treatment wand attachment which allows you to spray a jet of solution directly onto embedded stains before you begin carpet cleaning.
Make use of additional tools
The Platinum Power Max comes with a set of extra tools so you can effectively remove stains from those areas around the home which may need a little more attention. The long reach stretch hose and SpinScrub tool are perfect for cleaning stairs and targeting stubborn spot stains, and the upholstery wash tool is ideal for freshening up sofas.
Once you have tackled any spills and stains from over the Christmas period, don’t forget to continue using your carpet cleaner throughout the year. Even if you vacuum every day, using a carpet cleaner will prolong the life of your carpets – so remember to use it regularly to keep your carpet looking at its best.
