Get Rid of Pesky Halloween Carpet Stains 

Halloween is a great fall holiday full of treats, dressing up, and fun crafts. Although children love participating in all of these events, they tend to be a bit messy. Don't be surprised to find stains cause by treats and even craft supplies in your carpets this season. Before you start stressing over your clean carpets, keep in mind that most stains are quite easy to remove if taken care of in a timely manner. 

Pumpkin Carving and Your Carpets 

After picking up some pumpkins at the local pumpkin patch, your children are likely very excited to start carving their jack-o-lanterns. Ideally, this activity should be done outdoors where the mess will be easier to clean up. If this isn't possible, move your pumpkin carving party indoors, but remember to place some newspaper under the pumpkins. This will help contain the mess and stop it from spreading to places such as your carpet. If you find pumpkin pulp and seeds in your carpet anyways, don't stress! Although they're quite slimy and messy, pumpkin remnants are easy to get rid of. Start by scooping up as much of the mess as possible. Because the mess can be slimy, it's important that you do your best to avoid dropping bits and causing another stain. Once the excess has been removed, treat any leftover stain or spot with warm water. Dab the water onto the stain using a clean washcloth. Once the stain has been removed, use a dry, clean washcloth to soak up the excess. This will cause the stain to transfer from your carpet and onto the washcloth. You can repeat the process until the stain has completely disappeared. Allow the area to dry completely before stepping over it.

How to Remove Fake Blood 

If you have a little Dracula running around your house this Halloween, be on the lookout for fake blood stains in your carpet. A bright red stain may seem like the end for your clean carpets, but it doesn't have to be. If the stain is fresh, grab a dry washcloth and start soaking up the excess liquid. Start by getting a cup of cold water. dab the water onto the stain carefully. Work your way from the outside of the stain to the center in order to avoid causing the stain to grow. Next, use a clean, dry washcloth to soak up the water as well as the stain causing agent. Continue performing these two steps until you've gotten all the fake blood out of your carpet. Allow the area to dry thoroughly. 

Sticky Treats and Your Carpet 

After trick or treating, your children will probably be excited to get started on the bundle of candy they accumulated. Although their treats are quite yummy, they may seem less sweet if you find them rubbed into your carpet. A common carpet problem is chewing gum. Most children love it, whereas most parents prefer not to have it in their home at all. This is due to the fact that chewing gum is sticky and hard to remove when it ends up anywhere outside of a trash or your mouth. If you find a wad of gum on your carpet, keep calm. If you want to try to remove it yourself, remove as much of the gum by hand as best you can, then go online and buy a product called OOPS! It usually comes in a very small bottle, but you don’t need much. You can always call your Professional Carpet Cleaning Service in Aurora, DuPage Cleanpro.
