Now is the Time to Get Your Carpets and Upholstery Ready for the Holidays by Admin By Lynette CarringtonThe holiday season will be upon us before you know it. Now is the time to think about getting your carpets and upholstery in tiptop shape! When you have a few festive parties in your home, you never know what kind of stain disaster looms. Whether it’s cranberry sauce or pumpkin pie spilled on the carpet or turkey gravy or butter that falls on your chair cushions, there are any number greasy, sticky or colorful stains that could wind up on your carpets, cushions or couches. Spotless Carpet Care will clean and protect vulnerable areas of your home and get them ready just in time for your holiday guests. Owner of Spotless Carpet Care, Steve Cordell says, “Holiday season is the busiest time of the year for carpet cleaners. Scheduling your cleaning now ensures your home is looking great for the holidays.” The company handles both carpet and fabric cleaning and protection. Cordell explains, “When you have your carpets and upholstery cleaned, it is also a great time to protect them. Our DuPont fabric protector will help protect your carpet and upholstery from being stained by spills over the holidays.” He also offers some great advice if a spill does occur. “It is very important to attend to it immediately,” notes Cordell. “First, blot up as much of the spill as possible and then rinse with a spot cleaner or club soda. Remember to keep blotting the stain. Do not rub the stain in further.”Not all stains are created equally and some are harder than others to remove. Cordell says, “Red stains are the hardest times of spots to remove. Try to avoid serving red colored drinks at parties. The dyes in these drinks can cause permanent staining.”As a special for Scottsdale.com readers during the month of October, Cordell is offering a free Teflon protectant application for any carpet or fabric in the home that is also cleaned by Spotless Carpet Care. “A lot of carpets come with a fabric protector, but it wears off over time. The fabric protectant is something that maintains the carpet or upholstery and helps keeps it clean,” Cordell states. Spotless Carpet Care is based out of Chandler and operates primarily in the East Valley.
