We Wish You a Clean Christmas: Quick Tips for Dealing with Holiday Messes

Share

With Holiday Cheer comes the Holiday messes, here are some quick tips on how to deal with the spills and stains.

Since precaution is 70% of the solution, be sure to place welcome mats at entrances to catch dirt and snow. 

Another great precautionary step is to encourage guests to leaves boots and shoes at the door.

Wax:

Gently scrape away dry wax.  With wet wax, quickly wipe off with a clean, white rag.  To prevent spillages, place small platters or bowls beneath candles to catch any dripping.

Food and Drinks:

First of all, scoop away any excess before it is tracked elsewhere by unsuspecting guests.

If the spill is on hardwood or other hard surface flooring, wipe up as quickly as possible with a clean, white rag. 

If on carpet or a rug, immediately blot the spill with a warm, damp, clean, white rag.  Do NOT rub as that can force the stain into the fibers. (If the stain has dried, dampen the area before blotting.) 

Lay down some clean, dry, white paper towels weighed down by a few books or similar items; this can be left overnight. 

Afterwards, vacuum it to revive the fibers.

If the stain persists, we recommend using the appropriate Capture stain treatment as their products are gentle on your carpet or rug and will not damage it further.

If the mess persists or you have other questions, contact us for recommendations.

Share
We are super excited about a new area rug line by Stanton Royal Dutch. It is…
  • completely customizable

  • stylish
  • extreamly durable

The Natural Choice …

Natural, high quality wool has been the standard in floor covering for centuries and represents all the qualities that synthetic fibers attempt to emulate. This new line of rugs includes some of the best wool, such as New Zealand Wool which is unarguably the highest quality wool world wide. 

Here are just a few benefits of wool rugs & carpet:
  • Biodegradable: Wool is a biodegradable natural fiber and one of the most environmentally forgiving flooring products.
  • Renewable: Wool is a renewable product and therefore has less impact on the environment.
  • Sustainable: Wool has a longer life cycle than other fibers resulting in a smaller environmental footprint and only takes 6-12 months to grow more.
  • Non-Allergenic: Wool is a non-allergenic fiber and does not promote the growth of bacteria and dust mites, or give off harmful emissions.
  • Stain-Resistant: Wool cleans better and won’t soil quickly due to it’s natural soil resistance, making chemical stain protection treatments unnecessary.
  • Air Purifying: Wool fibers absorb and neutralize polluting gases such as formaldehyde, sulphur dioxide and nitrous oxides.
  • Fire Safe: Wool is naturally difficult to ignite and has a low flame spread.
