Stain Treatment Perth

Spot and Stain Treatment

With stain treatment acting quickly yet smartly to take care of spots, spillages and odours can be a very crucial thing. One must also definitely be aware that doing things correctly instead of taking a gamble can make all the difference. On just about every job we see evidence of unprofessional attempts to remove stains where things have clearly gone wrong. This can cause permanent damage to the carpet and become very costly. We just want to introduce ourselves and remind you that Capital Steam Cleaners are always here. We are not only here to provide professional recommended service but also friendly and helpful advice. As well as that you can feel comfortable all our friendly advice is free. This can save everyone a lot of money at the end of the day.

In the meantime let’s give you our Helpful Hints Maintenance Form! This is our gift to you to keep on site at home. We ask you to make good use of it if required and stay on top of things. Remember: Always use protective gloves before commencing cleaning and definitely NO BLEACH! Unfortunately you must also understand giving you this carpet cleaning information will not make you anywhere near as capable as we are. With regards to getting perfect results we are only showing you how to use the products you may have in  your cupboard not the products sold by our suppliers!

Related to the chart:

  1. Recommended Detergent Mix – ½ Teaspoon mild dishwashing liquid with 1 cup warm water.
  2. Ammonia Solution – 2 tablespoons clear, white non-suds ammonia and 4 cups cold water.
  3. White Wine Vinegar Solution – Use your own discretion and dilute with water to accommodate stain. If stain is particularly bad use neat but carefully.
  4. NB: If stain is dry always vacuum thoroughly prior. Rinse using clean white cloth (Blot Don’t Scrub). Once rinsed always absorb as much moisture out of carpet fibres as possible using thick folded paper towel and stand on pressure leaving as dry as can be.
