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  From start to finish, I am so impressed and pleased with Dazzle's Carpet Cleaning service. Kiera was kind and accommodating when booking the appointment and promptly followed up right until the technician arrived at our door. Mattias, the technician, was pleasant and thorough, and he took care to make sure our carpets were to our liking. The carpet dried quickly and was definitely clean afterwards! We have had different companies in over the years, but I think we are going to stick with Dazzle from now on.

  • 5 star review  Dazzle came to do carpet cleaning in my apartment building which turned out incredible. Our building is very old and the carpets were very saturated. You can see the lightness in color now and they no longer smell. I also utilized them to clean my carpet, bar stools, and couch on the same day. They did an excellent job. Highly recommend! Very knowledgeable

  • 5 star review  I called on Monday to have my carpets cleaned. I was given an appointment for Wednesday between 10:00 and 12:00. 11:15 my buzzer went. A very nice young man ( Aiden ) came to my door. I was very impressed with him the moment he came in the door. He told me where he was going to start and finish. I had some very bad stains and he was able to get them all out. The price quoted to me was spot on, there were no hidden fees. You don't need to look any further just book now with Dazzle.

  • 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’ve used this company 2 times now and am very impressed. The office staff made sure to confirm scheduled appointment time a day before visit, and also on the day to tell me that a service agent was on his way. When the Dazzle Carpet service agent arrived he was very professional, polite and got to work right away. I was very satisfied with the quality of work. I will always use this company going forward.
