omaha carpet cleaning_ink stainIf you have a coffee table in your living room, you may use it for writing from time to time. While it may not seem like a big deal to have a pen and notepad sitting on your coffee table, your opinion will likely change if it ever gets knocked off and then accidentally stepped on by a member of your family.

Although you may start making a point of keeping your pen in a location that’s away from carpet, the reality is the coffee table scenario is just one example of the type of accident that can result in ink all over your carpet (leading to a severe carpet stain). From kids running around with a marker to something causing ink to rub off on a section of carpet, there are a lot of different things that can lead to this type of mess.

While you may not be quite as worried if ink ends up in an area that’s mostly out of sight, no one wants to have this type of mess in the middle of any room. But in the event that does ever happen, we here at Sharp Carpet & Air Duct Cleaning know what you should do.

Omaha Carpet Cleaning Advice for Removing An Ink Stain

From our extensive Omaha carpet cleaning experience, we’ve found that in order for a homeowner to get an ink stain out without causing any damage, it’s vital that they deal with the spill as soon as possible. The longer ink sits on carpet, the more likely it will need to be professionally dealt with in order to be removed without causing any damage.

If you do happen to be around when ink spills, there are two popular choices for removing it. Those choices are rubbing alcohol and WD-40. Since these substances can react differently with various types of carpet and cause discoloration or staining if improperly used, it’s a good idea to call Sharp Carpet & Air Duct Cleaning first before trying these options.

When using rubbing alcohol or WD-40 to remove ink spots from your carpet, test a small patch that’s not very visible first to make sure that no discoloration occurs. Apply the remover and let it sit for 10 to 20 minutes, then start blotting. As you may discover, it can require a lot of blotting to see any progress in terms of removing the ink. Afterward, it’s important to rinse the affected area thoroughly with clean water, because these substances can discolor your carpeting if residue is left after cleaning.

Sharp Carpet & Air Duct Cleaning Can Get Rid of Even the Most Stubborn Ink

Since time is of the essence for successfully removing an ink stain in a Do It Yourself (DIY) approach, not discovering this type of stain until later can present a very challenging situation. The other thing to keep in mind is carpet isn’t the only area where ink can stain. A pen poking out of someone’s pocket while they sit on the couch can result in all kinds of markings.

Luckily, our team of Omaha carpet cleaning experts knows the best professional methods of removing ink from a wide variety of carpeted and upholstered surfaces. When you have an ink stain problem, no matter how big or small, we here at Sharp Carpet and Air Duct Cleaning can help!
