How to Clean Stains and Spillages on Your Carpet

Stains and spillages on a carpet are inevitable! And in a busy house with a young family, pets, or plenty of visitors, they can happen at any time.

But don’t panic. The good news is that carpets can be easily cleaned by following some simple guidelines below:

  • Be quick. Spillages are more easily removed if tackled immediately, so act promptly and don’t leave them until later, or allow them to dry as they’ll be harder to remove.

  • Blot off all the liquid stain with dry kitchen roll or a clean dry white cloth. Semi-solid substances should be removed with a plastic spatula.
  • To clean off any remaining stain use a clean damp cloth soaked in warm water to blot the stain. Use a dabbing action with the cloth and then blot out the remaining liquid with dry kitchen towel.


  • Be patient! Do not rub the pile surface or over soak the stain.


  • Always work from the outside of the stain inwards to minimise the stain spreading.

To ease the hassle of sticky fingers, muddy paws or accident prone adults, choosing a simple-to-clean carpet be may be a good option. Our range of easy-clean, polypropylene carpets are dirt and stain resistant and also bleach cleanable. To clean any spills or stains use a solution of bleach and warm water. Simply dilute one part bleach to six parts water. Repeat if required or contact a professional cleaner if more persistent stains remain.
