How To Remove Red Wine From Carpet

Know how to remove red wine from carpet

Spilling red wine on the carpet is a common accident. Red wine’s acidic composition and dark tones sometimes makes it impossible to completely remove from fabric or carpets, especially if the spillage is overlooked and allowed to dry.
 
Seeking immediate professional carpet stains removal service can rescue you from this. Below are some tips and tricks that may help you to completely or partially remove the stain. Please be cautious while applying home remedies for stain removal, or using supermarket all-purpose cleaning agents, as you could permanently damage or bleach the carpet.
 
Procedure 1:
Blot the spill with an absorbent and dry paper towel. Work from the outside edges to the centre so that you do not spread the spill. Make the carpet as dry as possible.
Do not scrub the carpet at all.
Create an alkaline solution consisting of one teaspoon of dishwashing liquid mixed in 750ml water. Test a couple of drops of this solution in an inconspicuous area of the carpet and leave it for 30 seconds. Rub the area with dry white paper towel to check whether the solution picks up colour or damages the carpet. If yes, try a different method of cleaning.
If the solution does not react adversely, use a sponge to dip into the solution and apply directly onto the wine stain. Keep the solution on the stained area for 4-6 minutes.
Keep blotting until the stain is lifted.
Neutralise the area with vinegar mixed with water.
Blot the area with a dry paper towel.

Note that the probability of successful red wine stains removal lessens once it is left to dry. You might need to take fast action if you are not completely satisfied with your own stain removal outcome. Consult a professional carpet cleaning service to schedule a cleaning service if the problem still exists. Untreated red wine stains can be lightened but may not be completely removed even after professional treatment.
