Tea and Coffee Stain Removal | Crawley, West Sussex
If you’ve had a tea and coffee spill and it’s still fresh, there is a procedure you can follow to enable you to remove part if not all of this yourself, saving yourself the cost of a call out fee. Simply follow the instructions below:
- Blot up any excess spillage using a white towel or cloth.
- Mix together a tablespoon of white vinegar and half a litre of warm water. Apply to your towel and continue to blot the stain, working from the outer part of the stain inwards so as not to spread it.
- Once you have finished doing this, repeat the blotting procedure with cold or lukewarm water.
- If necessary, leave the towel on the stain for a few hours or overnight, placing a large object on top of it, such as a heavy book.
By following the above steps, you should be able to remove most or all of the stain yourself, provided you have acted quickly.
Caution: Always test any product you use on your carpets and upholstery first in an area that is out of sight.
The above procedure is intended as a guide and is not a substitute for getting a professional in to deal with the stains. If you are unsure about doing this yourself, contact us on 0800 779 7275 and we will be happy to help or to offer our professional services.
The key to removing any stain successfully, including tea and coffee stains, is to act quickly and follow the correct method. Never scrub a carpet – always blot so as not to damage the fibres. We do not recommend the use of carpet shampoos and off the shelf products as these can potentially make a situation worse especially when used by anyone with little experience.
