The Trick to Coffee Stains!

2/5/2020 (Permalink)

A coffee cup spilled over on carpet. It's always best to stay away from harsh chemicals when it comes to removing carpet stains yourself.

You can't help but love SERVPRO of Brookhaven, McComb & Columbia for sharing our home tips on how to get those stubborn coffee stains out of your carpeting!

Step One:

Always start with water! If you catch the spill immediately, take a clean towel and blot blot blot. Start at the edges and work your way to middle. Spray with water and repeat until the coffee is all removed. On a still wet stain this may be all you need to do!

Step Two:

Still stained? Try foamy white shaving cream. Gently rub into the carpet without pressing (you don't want to push the stain in further). Allow to stand for a few minutes, then blot.  To rinse, spray with water and blot. Repeat process until completely rinsed. 

Step Three: 

Got an already dry stain? No problem! Make a baking soda and water paste, rub into the carpet, and allow to dry. Once dry, vacuum up the powder. You should be stain free!

Step Four:

Stain a tad more stubborn? Mix one part white vinegar, two parts water and spray directly to the stained area. Blot with a clean dry towel. Rinse by spraying water and thoroughly blotting. Repeat the rinse until all the vinegar is removed. 

Step Five:

Once your stain is gone, take a dry towel and lay over still wet area then stomp your feet over it. Ta Da!
