Removing Unsightly Stains From Your Rental Apartment in Gainesville, Florida
Accidents happen. Everybody knows and understands this. Yet it still doesn’t make us feel any better when various types of liquids are spilled on our floors. Luckily, there are remedies to combat these stains. However, different types of stains require different plans of action. Here is a quick breakdown of the different stain treatments:
- For coffee, tea, and other various drink stains, club soda can do the trick. First, vacuum over the stain, then apply the club soda by blotting or gently rubbing. Do not soak the carpet. After the club soda has been applied, rinse with warm water. You can also try applying vinegar mix or detergent water if the club soda is not sufficient.
- For gum residue, you can use an ice cube to harden the gum and then a dull knife to scrape it away.
For heel and scuff marks on hard floors, a large pencil eraser is best for removing the black streaks from the floor. If a simple eraser isn’t getting the job done, you can also rub toothpaste on the mark before washing the floor. This usually helps with the removal.
- For wax or candle stains, freezing the wax with ice then chipping away with a dull knife is usually effective. If this doesn’t work, try using a citrus or dry cleaning solvent and then rinsing the carpet with warm water.
