Halloween A Nightmare for Carpets

There’ll be a lot of pumpkins carved and sweets eaten over the weekend, as people excitedly get ready for their Halloween festivities, but Halloween parties can be a bit of a nightmare for carpets.

Sticky sweets and bits of pumpkin can get stuck in your carpet and if you don’t act quickly, they will attract dirt and be harder to clean, so here’s what you should do when the inevitable happens. 🎃🍬

Remove any large bits, then mix warm water with mild soap and gently dab the area with a clean white cloth until clean and any sticky sugar or pumpkin has been removed. If you don’t do this the spill can harden and the area will start to attract dirt. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When clean, dry the area by blotting it with a clean dry white cloth or paper kitchen towel.⠀⠀

Whenever you clean a stain on carpet, upholstery, or rug, always use a clean white cloth, to avoid transferring any colour from the cloth to the area being cleaned.

If in doubt, consult a professional. Happy Halloween from all at the Carpet Shop 🎃👻🍬

Frighteningly good deals, all year round!! 😱
