Despite what business sector you work in, with employees eating in the office and making numerous cups of tea and coffee, office carpet spills are inevitable. The question is, how do you deal with those annoying office carpet spills?
How do I clean my office carpet spills?
These accidents can happen at any time to everyone, perhaps someone overfilled their coffee cup or slopped their soup on the floor. As professional cleaners, we deal with commercial carpet cleaning in offices, week in, week out, however the chances of us being there when these spillages actually happen are rather unlikely. Whatever the spillage we have put together some tips on what you can do to deal with it yourself whilst minimising any long-term damage being made to your carpets!
What do I need to clean my office carpet?
First things first, don’t panic! If the spillage is a drink, grab an absorbent kitchen towel or other material to soak up as much of the liquid as possible. If it’s food, carefully remove the substance from the carpet and again use an absorbent kitchen towel to soak up as much as possible of the sauces or oils etc left behind.
Once you have got out as much of the liquid as possible it’s time to start working on the remaining residue. Please note if using any supermarket brands for this, quite often they contain bleach and other strong cleaning substances that can damage your carpet further. Always be sure to read the ingredients before using on your carpets targeted areas.
An alternative option to the supermarket brands is to use our Ideal Cleaning Professional Spotter. With a white cotton cloth, soak some of the spotter into part of it then apply to the spillage working from the outside of the spill inwards. It is important that you do not rub the carpet as this can cause damage to the surface, instead you need to simply blot the spill until you reach the centre. Although this is a longer process, you will receive much better results.
