How to remove stubborn stains from carpet fibres

At Concept Cleaning Services, our staff have worked in the cleaning services and facilities management industry for many years. During this time, we have accumulated numerous industry insights and innovative cleaning remedies to remove all manner of stains. Subsequently, regardless of whether you own a domestic property or commercial facility, listed below are some helpful hints on how to remove stubborn stains from carpet fibres:


Mud stains that have been walked all over a commercial office or domestic property can be unsightly and difficult to remove once they have become ingrained within carpet fibres. However, you should always leave mud stains to dry completely before you begin cleaning them. Once dry, you should gently scrape off the surface debris and then apply a solution of warm water, detergent and white vinegar to the stained area of carpet. After leaving this to dry for an hour, you can return and vacuum it gently to remove all traces of the mud stain.

Chewing gum

Chewing gum stains can be stubborn to remove, unless you know this innovative cleaning technique! Firstly you should freeze the chewing gum by pressing an ice cube against it until it has frozen completely. Once frozen, you will be able to easily and effortlessly scrape the chewing gum off the carpet without damaging the carpet fibres underneath.

Acidic products

As ironic as it may seem, acidic products such as vinegar, which are often used as cleaning remedies, can leave distinct stains within carpet fibres unless they are removed carefully. To do so, you should quickly apply water and baking soda to the stained area of carpet, rinse with cold water and then vacuum over the stain. If the stain is still apparent then you can repeat this process multiple times; the stain will eventually vanish.
