When you own carpets in your house, you must take good care of them. After all, carpets increase the overall looks of any household. Hence, when an accident happens and you spill something onto your carpet, you must do something about it immediately. If you let it last there, you’ll have a hard time removing it in the future. There are so many types of stains that can land in your carpet including dog urine, wine and even hot sauces.
One overlooked stain is vomit stain as there are times when you host parties in your house. When you do, you may not notice other people when they drink too much. It tends to happen to some people who
think they’re having such a great time. Unfortunately, what may happen next is they’ll get too dizzy and vomit. It won’t matter whether they ate a lot of food or not much.
They’ll still vomit if they drank a lot of alcohol. Of course, they’ll hurry to the comfort room but it’s possible they won’t be able to vomit on the toilet. There’s a possibility someone is using the comfort room or it’s too far from where they are. As a result, they’ll vomit on the floor. If you’re unlucky, they’ll vomit on your carpet and pass out after that. While it may be funny to take pictures of the drunk person, the stains on the carpet aren’t a laughing matter.
Of course, removing vomit stains isn’t an easy task but it must be done. After all, if you leave the stains there, it’s going to cause a foul odor. While you’ll be tempted to wash the entire carpet, that will be a lot of work. You can do it the easy way and here’s how:
– Remove excess vomit
While it may be difficult to watch, you’ll have to remove the excess vomit. You can use a breathable dustproof mask while doing this so you won’t smell the vomit.
– Sprinkle Baking Soda
To get rid of the horrible smell of the vomit stain, it would be a splendid idea to sprinkle baking soda on it. After doing that, wait for 10 minutes then use a vacuum cleaner to get rid of any solid particles
– Use Clean White Cloth
Take a sponge and mix it with the clean white cloth. Afterwards, take a dry cleaning solvent and sponge the stain.
Blot the stain until it is completely absorbed. This step may take some time but it will be worth it when the solvent is absorbed. You may need to check if the cloth you’re using is completely clean. You may make the carpet dirtier if you use a dirty cloth.
If the stain still isn’t removed, you shouldn’t panic. After all, removing vomit stains can be done when you search on the Internet. Of course, you’re going to be busy with work so it would be better to assign this task to carpet cleaning professionals. You can ensure they’ve encountered the problem many times so they’ll already know what to do. Hence, you can expect them to take care of the problem in no time. You’ll be surprised at how the carpet looks as good as new after they’re done with it. They’ll even give you
tips on how you can avoid encountering the same problem in the future. When you saw how good they are, you can recommend them to your friends. After all, when you own a carpet, you must regularly clean them or dust particles will land on them and your family may get sick.
There’s no question you’re going to get a headache when you see vomit stains on your carpet. Unfortunately, screaming at the person who vomited on your carpet won’t do you any favors since the damage has been done. The least you can do is to tell the individual to avoid doing it next time. While it’s possible the person would be scared of attending your parties in the future, that’s alright as long as your carpets won’t get harmed.
After all, you can tell from the attitudes of your guests who among them will likely vomit on your carpet. Besides, there are two types of guests who will attend your party. There are those who want to have such a good time that they wouldn’t mind the amount of liquor they drink since it’s free. There’s also the type that doesn’t like to drink much or won’t drink at all because they want to wake up early the next day
for work or exercise.
Of course, the latter won’t spill anything on your carpets as they want everything to consistently look good. There’s a strong possibility of the former doing that though so better watch
people like that. When you see they’re a little dizzy, better thrown them out of the house before they put stains on your carpet. If you don’t take care of your carpet, it may get old easily. It may be only a
matter of time before you’ll need to buy a new one.
After knowing removing vomit stains is not a difficult task, you should still avoid doing it in the future. Even if it only takes a few steps, you shouldn’t be too confident of doing it. Besides, you’ll need to buy materials to do it over and over again. You must assign people to watch guests who decide to drink too much at the next party. It’s something you wouldn’t want to do as you’ll need to spend a lot of time and energy doing it. In fact, you may be too tired to do anything else after doing it. One bright idea would be to put a sign that says if anybody vomits on your carpet then they will need to buy you a new one. Of course, that’s going to scare them off since everyone is aware how expensive carpets are. When you’re used to seeing your carpets in your home, it won’t feel complete without the carpets.
