carpet stain‘Tis the season to eat, drink, and be merry! The holidays are a prime time for holiday parties and family get-togethers. When you combine a lot of people with a lot of food, a lot of spills and stains can happen.

NEW Solid Surface Cleaning can be your after-party ally.

An ugly stain can ruin a perfectly beautiful carpet, tile, or stone floor. We’ve seen some doozies! You could spend a small fortune to replace the flooring, or you could call us to remove the stain. Our stain removal techniques extend the life of your carpet or flooring and save you money in the long run. Here are the Dos and Don’ts for cleaning up food and drink spills.


Use over-the-counter cleaners, soap or detergents. These stain removers typically aren’t strong enough to remove the stain, and they might set the stain or cause permanent discoloring.


Blot or dab the spill using a white rag or paper towel. Avoid using a colored rag, because its color may transfer to the surface you’re trying to clean.


Use the 8-ounce bottle of spot remover we left behind after cleaning your carpet, tile, or vinyl floors. The spot remover is safe for any cleanable surface.


Call us and tell us what happened. We’ll work with you to determine the best option for stain treatment and removal.
