Red Wine Spill ABCs: There’s nothing better at the end of a long week than a nice glass of wine. You deserve it, it’s been one heck of a year and you’ve been working hard, take a load off. If red is your drink of choice you’ve no doubt been burned by red wine spills in the past. Accidents happen – if your dream of a relaxing evening just turned into a nightmare, don’t panic. We can help, you just need to remember your ABCs…

Act Fast

Red wine spills can be pesky to get out, even more so if the stain has dried! So you need to act fast while the spill is still wet. Grab a clean, dry cloth and start to blot the stain from the perimeter towards the middle. This method ensures you aren’t spreading the spill and making it bigger.

 

Blot, Don’t Rub

Blot the stain lightly at first, start from the outside of the spill and work your way inwards. When it comes to red wine spills (or any spill for that matter) never ever use a rubbing motion. It can push the stain into the fibres and make it more likely to be permanent. Keep blotting until all the red wind spill is absorbed, use multiple rags if you need to. 

 

Clean Without Chemicals

Don’t even think about running to the store for a spot cleaner. Many store bought cleaners can react poorly with red wine spills and actually set the stain making it permanent. Some contain peroxides which can permanently affect the colour of your carpet. The best solution for red wine spills is one you can make at home. Mix 1 tablespoon of dishwashing liquid, one tablespoon of white vinegar and 2 cups of water in a bowl. 

 

Dab, Dab, Dab

Grab more clean dry cloths and alternate wetting the area slightly with a rag dipped in your cleaning solution, and drying it with another clean dry cloth. Continue this process until the spill is no longer noticeable. For maximum effectiveness, you may need to run through the steps above several times and to create a new mixture if needed.

If all else fails, or if the stain is dry when you discover it, call Dazzle Carpet Cleaning at 604-802-8500 and we can help you find a solution to all your red wine spill problems!

  • 5 star review  We had our carpet cleaned by them when my baby is three months old. They use plant based solution so it’s baby and pets friendly. Carpet got cleaned very well except one spot was stained with oil which came back to the surface after couple days which was exactly what they told us what might happen since it’s oil. Other than that, the carpet looks fresh and clean and they were able to remove couple of tough stains left by our dog. Will definitely use them again!

  • 5 star review  I used Dazzle Carpet Cleaning for the first time this week and am super impressed with the service and quality of work. After my previous carpet cleaner retired, I found Dazzle by searching carpet cleaners on the internet. I feel lucky to have found such a fantastic company first try. Kiera is very organized setting up the appointment and reminders and making sure I knew when the technician was arriving. Rob and his assistant cleaned the carpets. Rob is a very informed and talented professional. He ensured an excellent clean of my carpets and care of my walls and corners. I am very impressed and will call Dazzle in the future. I am also happy to support a small, local business.

  • 5 star review  Aiden professionally cleaned a couple of our large area rugs and our sofa. He was very nice, very professional, and did a great job! The most important thing to me was to use a company that used cleaning products safe for my baby and my two dogs, and that’s what this company uses. Not only that, but they’re eco-friendly. I was thinking there would still be some lingering smell from the cleaning solution, but I didn’t smell anything at all which made me feel confident my baby and pets wouldn’t be breathing anything toxic as promised. We will definitely be using Dazzle again 🙂

  • 5 star review  I had the Dazzle come in to have our carpet cleaned prior to the arrival of our newborn. It was a very last minute decision and initially, I was hesitant about cleaning the carpet as I remembered it would usually leave a strong chemical smell and I had to ventilate the whole house for at least a couple days. We are a family of two young toddlers and a newborn on the way and I was not sure if I wanted to risk having the wet and chemical soaked carpet only a couple weeks before my due date. But I realized I worried for nothing. I was able to get an appointment promptly and get the work done in a matter of a few days. Rob and his assistant did a fantastic job! There was absolutely no need for me to worry about the smell or ventilation as there was none and the carpet were spotlessly clean. They convinced me that I could have a clean, if not cleaner, carpet without having to use strong chemical filled products. I would highly recommend to anybody but especially, for families with young children like ours who can appreciate their plant based products that are safer to little ones. All in all, I am 120% satisfied with their work and would love to have them come back to clean our carpet in the future again!
