Carpet Cleaning & Stain Removing Tips
Having trouble removing stains?
Mercure Sydney Housekeeping team can help you!
Carpet stain is a common problem in hotel. Stains from food, chocolates, Red wine, tea/coffee, chewing gums are found frequently in hotel housekeeping. There are a range of techniques used to deal with this daily problem.
At Mercure Sydney, we use various chemicals and strategies to deal with different types of stains. For food and chocolate stain, we use a mixture of 1 cup clear ammonia in 2 litres of warm water and wipe the stain with sponge gently. By pouring a bit of beer right on top of coffee or tea stain can literally lift stain out of the carpet.
Stain from Red wine is hard to deal with, but there’s hope. First, while the red wine is still wet, pour some white wine on it to dilute the color. Then clean the spot with a sponge and cold water. Sprinkle the area with salt and wait about 10 minutes the vacuum up the whole mess. Chewing gum on the carpet can be taken off by leaving cubes of ice on top of it for 10-15 minutes. Also, wet carpet odour, vomiting odour can be removed by spreading borax powder and vacuuming with vacuum filled with camphor balls at the base of the vacuum bags.
So you running out of ways of getting rid of any carpet stain in your house, use the techniques we use at Mercure Sydney and see the difference.
