The need for carpet cleaning services are never event-specific, but after surviving the holidays, will your carpets go unscathed after all the snacks and excitement from the biggest game of the season? Here are some helpful tips for tackling stains once your friends and family arrive to watch the big game on Sunday, February 2, at 4:30 PM MST.
Touchdown Worthy Snacks
The ultimate game-day snacks also come with some unsportsmanlike stain potential. Pizza, wings, nachos, and other snack favorites means more than one type of stain that you must treat once the partying has finished. Have no fear; Green Clean has some MVP tips to help keep you ahead of the game and allow you to enjoy whatever part of the day you love, whether it’s the game or commercials.
Sacking Those Greasy Stains
Pizza, nachos, and wings are the go-to snacks for sporting parties, but they also leave some of the worst stains on your clothes, furniture, and carpet. If these snacks get flipped onto your floor during the excitement of the game, don’t panic. Grab a bunch of paper towels and pick up all solid pieces and blot at the stain.
Using a small amount of dish soap, liquid detergent, or stain remover on a damp sponge or rag gently scrub at the stain. Make sure that you are not grinding the stain deeper into the carpet. After the stain is gone, make sure to go over the area with clean water to remove any residue from the carpet.
However, tackling these stains right away can throw a flag on the play to your guests, so leaving the stain alone until everyone has gone is what most hosts do. Instead, make sure you have a roll of paper towels stashed in your party space to clean up the solids and know how to get set-in stains up later. Stain remover is designed to extract those set-in stains and make you feel like a winner too.
Game Day Beverages
When it comes to major sporting events, beer is the national go-to drink, and chances are you might get some spillage on your carpet. Beer stains are water-based, so they’re not as tricky to get up as red wine, or mixed drinks are. Use the same steps mentioned earlier to treat the stain, and you should be able to lift the stain with ease.
