One of the biggest spring cleaning projects in your home is cleaning the carpets, I think. One of the toughest jobs in cleaning your carpets is lifting and removing those old nasty stains that may be embedded deep into the carpet fibers. These carpet stains should be pretreated and removed from your carpets before shampooing, otherwise you won’t like the results you may get from your carpet shampooing job. There are several stain removers and stain lifters on the market today. Some of them are very good, while some of them aren’t worth bringing home. I have purchased both the good and the not so good carpet stain removers. Here is a list of what I consider to be the top 5 Apartment cleaning services in Chicago.
1. Woolite Oxy p.o.d.:
This stain remover comes in a container as odd looking as its name itself, but it works. This handy all in one carpet stain cleaner even comes with its own brush. Everything you need to lift those carpet stains is included in this one p.o.d. The oxygen-activated cleaning formula permanently removes tough set in stains. You just squeeze the formula from the container onto the carpet stain and work it in with the attached scrubber, let it dry, and vacuum. The stain is gone. I used it on a red wine stain on my carpet and it worked very well. I wouldn’t really recommend it for a very large area of carpet stains as it would take quite awhile to complete the project, but for your smaller carpet stains, it works wonders. It’s available at a number of retail stores, discount stores and grocers for a price of around $3.99.
2. Joe Campanelli Stain Remover:
