Emergency Christmas Carpet Cleaning Tips

Emergency Christmas and New Year Cleaning Home Remedies

From the accidental Christmas chocolates trodden into the carpet, to those clumsy red wine spills that happen on New Year’s Eve, we’ve got the best cleaning home remedies for ridding your carpets of the most common Christmas and New Year’s stains.

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, but for our carpets it’s a completely different story. From the accidental Christmas chocolates that are dropped and trodden into the carpet in the frenzy that is Christmas morning, to those clumsy red wine spills that happen on New Year’s Eve or even just the increase in foot traffic around the house. Chances are your carpets are going to experience some heavy use  over the holiday period.

For those unexpected spills where there isn’t a cleaner on hand and the shops aren’t open, we’ve got the best cleaning home remedies for ridding your carpets of the most common Christmas and New Year’s stains.

Cranberry Sauce 

Sometimes our beloved favourites can escape the plate and end up on the carpet. However, your carpets needn’t suffer. For a simple home remedy all you’ll need is a tablespoon of hand dishwasher liquid mixed together with two cups of water. With a clean white cloth, simply wet cloth in the mixture and gently blot the stain until all the liquid is absorbed. Repeat until the stain has disappeared.

Red/Mulled Wine 

Christmas is a time for celebration and many enjoy a glass of red wine, or even mulled wine since it is the season, but when our drinks end up hitting the carpet instead of our mouths it can be a bit less cheery. Not to worry though, we’ve got a cleaning hack that will help remove that stain as much as possible. Begin by grabbing a white dish cloth or paper towel and start blotting the carpet to remove as much of the wine as you can. After you’ve got out as much of the liquid as you can, pour a little bit of cold water onto the stain, this will help dilute the stain and make the blotting easier. Once it appears that no more wine will come up, create a baking soda paste by mixing a ratio of three to one water to baking soda ration and applying it to the area. After the paste has dried all you’ll need to do is vacuum the stain.

Chocolate
 Chocolate treats are a tradition in many a household over the festive period, and one too many times carpets see their fair share of these goodies also. If you find yourself in this predicament over Christmas then there’s no need to worry. First, grab a butter knife and try and scrape the chocolate off the carpet. Once the chocolate has been removed apply a mixture of ¼ teaspoon of mild white detergent and one cup of room temperature water, then with a white cloth work your way from the outer edge of the stain to the middle, blotting not rubbing.

Beer 

If beer is more your beverage of choice over the holiday period, we’ve got a cleaning tip  for getting those stains out of the carpet too. Once you’ve got a clean white paper towel or cloth, begin blotting up as much of the spilled beer as possible. Then, use two cups of plain warm water mixed with a tablespoon of hand dishwasher liquid and a table spoon of white vinegar to blot the stain away.

Another Hoarder Clean Up 2017

Hoarder Cleaning Services Somerset

We have had over 7 years experience with handling the sensitive nature of hoarder property cleanups and restoration. Some mental issues include the feeling of not being able to release, and don’t like to throw things away. Often this is coupled with a restricted access in their garden to the bins or to hire a skip. Crawfordsprc respect each and every job requirement and provide high levels of dignity whilst cleaning a property.

Other reasons include situations whereby a lady was no longer mobile and was unable to pick up dropped items onto the floor around her property. Whilst it could be considered awful, working with less able people who drop coffee, soup or other food items it’s impossible to clean without help.

Steps to cleaning this project and recycling of waste

  • Somerset based rented property
  • This took 5 people 2 working days
  • Two van loads of waste materials to be recycled with the local waste company Towens

We are called in by different agencies which could include the reasons because a client has had a fall and the Emergency Services have highlighted the situation. Also it could be because a person is in hospital and it’s not safe to release and return home without a clean toi ensure safety and optimum healthy limits.

Bristol Chain Smoker Happy With Cleaning

Smoke and Tar Ladened Property Gets Facelift

We were called to this property which, over many years, had the by effects of smoking cigarettes without adequate ventilation, opening windows, etc. This also means it’s very hard for visitors due to the fumes or even little things like handling food or wiping down surfaces.

We washed the walls in placed, for example in the stairway.

Everything is by hand, from degreasing the windows to wiping the doors and door frames. This has to be completed in advance of steam cleaning the carpets to ensure all dirt falls onto the carpet ready for us to clean.

  • Two full days of work for this single bedroom flat
  • Three people to tackle the project
  • All waste safely removed from site
  • Some before and after photos below, the video shows many more photos.
