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  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  My carpets looks brand new! The service was amazing, the people were very polite , the price is complete amazing too! They didnt manage to take out one stain but it almost faded , so I easily removed it with vinegar and it was gone . I feel like I would have to deal with it more difficult if they hadn't remove the stain as much as possible! I always had trouble finding someone who can clean my carpets, but I finally found one that I can trust!

  • 5 star review  Smokers these guys are busy! Called wanting to get my place cleaned this Saturday before my lease was up, the receptionist kindly explained that they were fully booked but took the time to tell me all about their services and prices even still. Great discounts for first time customers. Even though Dazzle could not book me in I'm still happy I called. Good customer service is hard to come by these days. I'm an old timer who believes that the person who answers the phone is the face of the business. I gave the receptionist my information and she will be calling me back to set up carpet cleaning for my new place when I'm moved out! Wow! Still giving me 20% off even though the discount ends this month. If this is just their reception, can't wait to see what kind of job cleaning they do. Will update after my appointment. Kiera (i before e, like you told me!) keep up the good work. You made an old man very happy by chatting with him on the phone today!
