Stained Glasses of Christmas

Holidays are a time of wonder. However, between the visitors, celebrations, and cooking experiments, they can also be a time of holiday mistakes. These stains are common during the holiday season and can be found on carpets, rugs, or upholstery.

Many of the DIY ideas you find online can do more harm than good. Bleach, rubbing alcohol, or even laundry stain removal products can damage the fibers in your carpets, area rugs, or upholstered furniture. Dish detergents, soaps, and detergents can leave behind residues that attract dirt, making the area more prone to soiling.We recommend that you keep it simple for any spill or stain. To remove solids, use the backsides of a butter knife or spoon. Use a dry, clean white cloth or paper towel to wipe up liquid spills gently. Patience will help you. Do not grind or press the stains into the fabric. Repeat the process, then use small amounts of clean, cold, clean water to dilute any remaining stains. Follow this with another round of blotting using a white, clean, and dry cloth or paper towel to absorb any moisture. These steps will not aggravate the problem but can help minimize any damage.

We recommend a service visit by your local Chem-Dry operator in order to safely and permanently remove these stains. Get ahead of the holiday rush with our Package. It provides a protective layer around fibers that makes cleaning up spills much easier.


Check the sink every day for buildup. Clean any residue that has accumulated with a wet cloth or paper towel. Watch for calcium deposits in your sink, tub, or shower fixtures. Keep your water softener fully in stock to prevent buildup.

One quick scrub with a disposable toilet brush once a week can keep your toilet from becoming a mess. If possible, mop your floors once or twice a week and replace your towels on a regular schedule. Two times a year, clean your bathroom tiles professionally to remove dirt and grime.

Hallways and Entrances

Pay special attention to rugs and carpets in areas with a lot of foot traffic. Dirt and dust can accumulate at the doorways that lead outside and then spread to other rooms in your home. Every couple of days, sweep the area around the doorway to remove dust and dirt before they accumulate. Vacuum the hallways and areas with heavy foot traffic a little more frequently than you do your main rooms. Dirt can accumulate, dulling your carpets. Dust behind and around wall art and hallway furniture.

Starting off the new year right can help you maintain a fresh look in your home without much effort. As the old saying goes, a pound of prevention is better than a pound of cure. By resolving to perform regular maintenance, you can avoid having to do more intensive cleaning in the future. This is a worthwhile resolution if you ask us.
