This holiday season has brought on a shift in traditions, less in-store shopping, and more intimate gatherings, but as we approach December holidays and the New Year, one thing will remain the same—the potential for carpet stains. So let’s dive into two topics: stain-resistant carpet and tackling the toughest holiday stains.
First, let’s talk stain-resistant carpet. Is it too good to be true? Absolutely not. With advanced technology, carpet is now made softer, stronger, and more stain-resistant than ever before. No longer do families have to live in fear of every inevitable spill or mishap. Carpet is now built to stand up to life’s beautiful messes. Let’s get you familiar with a few of our favorite stain-resistant carpet options from Carpet One Floor & Home.
Offering enhanced stain repellency through technical innovations in its fiber and yarn processing, Resista 3.0 carpet actually repels stains and liquid spills before they have a chance to seep in or spread. The innovative carpet collection also comes with our Platinum Plus warranty coverage featuring life-of-floor protection for spoiling, wear, and texture retention and an additional 10-year no exclusions stain warranty for all food and beverage spills. Not only does this carpet perform, but it offers high fashion visuals drawn from nature in a wide array of beautiful tones and textures. Find your favorite style.
Carpet that cleans up most spills with just plain water? Hard to believe, but true! Innovia Touch Xtreme Clean™ carpet is constructed with the patented INNOTEX™ fiber, natural-based fiber with no dye sites that’s encased in a protective shield. What does that mean? It means a fiber that is inherently non-porous and thus, prevents accidents from absorbing into the fibers for complete, built-in protection that’s permanent. The fiber technology also produces a carpet that’s unbeatable soft and strong making it the perfect carpet for the busy, modern household. Shop all styles of Innovia Touch Xtreme Clean carpet.
Unless you already have stain-resistant carpet in your home or you miraculously manage to get new stain-resistant carpet installed before the holidays (not likely, but we can dream), you’re going to benefit BIG from the following information. These five stains are intimidating, but are no match for the simple-to-follow carpet cleaning steps brought to you by Carpet One Floor & Home’s ever-handy Stain First Aid app.
Did you know that everything you need to clean most carpet stains is likely already in your home? Here’s the list of basic household supplies that you’ll need to tackle the five stains we’re going to cover today:
It’s, perhaps, the most feared stain of all: red wine. Whether you’re a year-round connoisseur or a special occasion type of drinker, when red wine spills it packs a pigmented punch. Take a look at how this beloved beverage can be tackled in a few simple steps.
On the topic of beloved beverages, there’s nothing quite like hot coco during the holiday season. At the table, by the fire, or whenever little ones might carry their cup, spilled coco makes a mark. Erasing any sign of the chocolatey treat is easier than you might think.
Who said just because you’re not going out or entertaining this year means you can’t put on your holiday-inspired red lip? We don’t know about you, but there’s something about a red lip that instant lifts spirits and, in light of 2020, we recommend giving it a try more than ever. Here is a simple, how-to if your favorite shade of rouge takes a tumble onto the carpet.
There’s nothing quite like the ambiance created by candlelight. A candlelit dinner, games with the family, or simply just because—we love a good display of candles come the holiday season. If spilled, cleaning candlewax from the candle can seem like an impossible feat. In actuality, it takes fewer steps to lift hardened wax than it does to clean nearly any other stain you might face.
We’ll spare you a video demonstration of this stain, but it’s one of those real life circumstances that we felt it was important to include. If you’re lucky enough to find a puppy under your tree this Christmas, Stain First Aid has you covered for the unavoidable messes that are to come. Take the following steps for any urine stain, fresh or dry.
Step 1: For a fresh stain, blot up excess moisture. For a dry stain, begin at step 2.
Step 2: Apply detergent solution with a damp towel.
Step 3: Blot-don't rub.
Step 4: Apply white vinegar with a damp towel.
Step 5: Blot-don't rub.
Step 6: Apply water with damp sponge.
Step 7: Blot again.
Step 8: Absorb excess moisture by covering with a half-inch thick pad of paper towels and weighing down with books.
