The kids are back at school and aside from a few sporadic rays of sun, summer certainly seems to have left us behind. Here at Pro Carpet Cleaning, come rain or shine we're still out there working and have most recently opened up operations in Bracknell, Wokingham and Wimbledon.
In this newsletter we look at how to remove one of the most common stains, coffee, using a couple of simple solutions involving vinegar and washing up liquid. There are some offers on Facebook, a competition and even discounts on oven cleaning...if you're interested.
We're always on the end of the phone if ever you need us, but if you don't, have a great September.

Tip of the Month
How to remove coffee stains from your carpet.
First thing to say about coffee stains is that if they're old then there is no guarantee that they will come out without professional help, but they can do, so well worth a try. Also, the following method uses some homemade solutions, which we thoroughly recommend you test first on an inconspicuous area of carpet. With those disclaimers out the way, on with the tip...
If the stain is fresh, then first blot the area with kitchen towel to remove the excess coffee, working from the outside in so as to avoid spreading the stain. Next you will need to create a solution of 1 tablespoon of washing up liquid to 250ml of warm water and with this, saturate the area, blot dry and repeat this until the stain becomes noticeably lighter. Then create a solution of one part white vinegar to two parts warm water. Again, saturate the area and blot dry. Repeat this until the stain is gone.
In brief then:
1. Blot dry excess coffee
2. Create solution of 1 tbsp washing up liquid to 250 ml warm water
3. Saturate area, blot dry, repeat until stain lightens
4. Create solution of 1 part white vinegar to 2 parts warm water
5. Saturate area, blot dry, repeat until stain disappears
