Red Carpet Stains – Midwest Carpet and Duct Cleaning – St Louis MO
Midwest Carpet and Duct Cleaning wants to share information with you about how to remove red carpet stains professionally. Attempting to remove them on your own can cause them to set further. We recommend not treating them at all and calling us first. Each type of red stain is different.
Professional Cleaners are not necessarily concerned with the cost of the cleaner. We are not willing to buy the cheaper brand and sacrifice our safety or yours. We only buy the ones that work and that are safe for the environment.
More Powerful Equipment
Professional Cleaners use equipment that works hard to get the stains out. We use a tractor-mount engine that provides much much more horsepower than your normal brook or sweeper.
When you use a rented carpet cleaner, the carpet is left wet. Professional Cleaners use fans to dry the carpet before we are even gone.
When we clean your ducts, we are able to reach way down into the system without taking it completely apart. Saving you time and money.
First of all, our technicians walk through your home with you, visually inspecting the carpet.
They will listen to you concerns and identify potential permanent stains.
At the end of the estimate, your technician will leave you with a summary of cost and your expected results.
Our regularly pricing includes moving sofas, chairs, tables, and smaller items.
Traditionally, beds, dressers, and heavier pieces cost extra to move and sometimes are not necessary. Ask you consultant for their advice and potential cost.
We remove dry soil by thoroughly vacuuming with commercial powered vacuums.
We apply a preconditioning agent to soak and break down traffic area soil and general spots for a more thorough cleaning.
We pre-treat difficult spots with special solutions to increase chances of removal.
Be sure to tell your technician about red and pet stains
Soil Extraction and Rinse.
The carpet is then thoroughly cleaned and rinsed using a powerful truck mounted hot water extraction cleaning system without over wetting the carpet or leaving a sticky residue behind.
After cleaning, we do a dry pass to remove any possible over spray from the process to promote a faster dry time.
We also run fans on our smaller jobs to increase the drying time of your carpets.
Any spots or stains still remaining will get extra treatment with our many cleaning agents.
For longer carpet life and fewer permanent stains, be sure to have a professional carpet protector applied to your carpet such as scotch-guard.
It is very important to balance the pH of the textile.
Neutralizing helps eliminate re-soiling, makes the carpet feel soft and fresh, and it prepares the carpet for carpet protector.
Your carpet is groomed with a professional groomer so that the pile of your carpet is standing tall when we leave.
Post grooming helps the carpet pile dry faster and in the right position.
High velocity air movers are placed onto the carpet immediately after cleaning to promote faster drying.
Carpets are virtually dry when we have finished.
Post Cleaning Inspection
Our technicians will walk through your home with you to point out the cleaning results to make sure that you are completely satisfied with your cleaning.

At Midwest Carpet and Duct Cleaning, we highly encourage people to adopt pets from shelters. Heck, most of the people who work here already have! But what happens to those pets in the mean time? Well, many are kept in cages at the shelter which is not only terrifying to them, but hard on their health. Pet or foster pet clean up is hard in a home, but even harder in shelters. This can lead to animals and people getting ill prior to the pets moving on to their future homes.
We encourage our clients and future clients to consider adopting or fostering. You might not think you have time. You might not think foster pet clean up is that easy. Or You might think it will be hard to let go when they find a furever home. But take a chance. At least you have us for the foster pet clean up!
A client of ours is a pet owner, a mother, and a foster parent. She also has a job and runs an online store. No, this is not wonder woman, but sure seems like it. Below are some pictures of her house and her last cleaning. As you can see, she had some serious areas of pet, child, and foster pet clean up that we needed to address. But no job is too big or too small for us.
So consider bringing a pet into your home permanently or even temporarily. We are here to help you keep your house clean and you happy. We just ask that you consider sharing that happiness with a dog or cat in need.
That’s unfortunate. But when the family gets together, its supposed to be fun! Don’t be stressed about trying to get that stain out.. There are plenty of DIY ways to get that red wine out. Here’s an example:
With a white cloth, try and blot as much of the red wine stain as you can. The more you soak up, the less you’ll have to remove.
After you finish blotting, pour a bit of cold water directly onto the wine stain. During this helps dilute what remains of the stain, making blotting a bit easier. Continue blotting until you find that no more of the stain will come out.
Now prepare a baking soda paste by mixing a three to one ratio of water to baking soda and applying it to the affected area. Once the paste is dry, vacuum the stain.
Why won’t this DIY solution work?
Well, it might for your top stain, but it doesn’t extract what is in the pad below the carpet. The carpet might be looking great, but the next wetness that hits this carpet, wine will return. Red is the hardest stain to get out. The pink remains for years!
Secondly, the baking soda paste could bleach your carpet. Ever notice how sometimes you clean up a stain and that spot is lighter than the other carpet around? That’s what some cleaners can do to carpet. It is important to only use natural or professional grade cleaners to get the stain out.
Calling us prevents Red Wine Stains from returning!
We use a combination of extraction, cleaning agents, heat and cold to remove that stain. We treat each stain for their specific need. We then test to see if the red is going to resurface before we leave.
