BISSELL Rental’s Summer Stain Cleaning Guide
Are you ready for summer? We are at BISSELL Rental! It’s our favorite time of year. Who doesn’t love being outside on a beautiful sunny day, maybe even by a pool? The only thing we look forward to more is spending those sunny days with family and friends. But all that fun in the outdoors can sometimes find its way indoors in the form of stains. We know people tend to sneak inside to enjoy the air conditioning and then – boom – you have ice cream on the carpet. Luckily, knowing how to clean carpet stains, even common summer stains, is easy.
We’ve created this easy Summer Cleaning guide to help you clean summer stains so you can get back to enjoying summertime sooner.

You don’t have to learn how to clean disgusting carpet – we won’t let it get that far! First, pick up what you can of the mess. If there are big pieces or a lot of excess liquid, scrape as much out of the carpet as you can. Don’t push it into the carpet though! Grab an enzyme-action carpet cleaner, like Pet Urine Stain & Odor
spray. It seems like an odd choice for some of these stains, but it’s a good first step in spot and deep cleaning. When used as directed, enzymes attack and destroy stains and odors by breaking down protein, starches and oils and they stay active until the urine is gone. Our patented technology eliminates tough pet odors.
Work the formula into the stain with a cloth, using light strokes moving from the edge of the stain towards the center. No scrubbing required! When you reach the center of the stain, lightly pinch in an upward motion. Then spray a little more formula on the stain and put a damp, white cloth over the top. Let it sit for 24-48 hours to keep those enzymes working on the stain and odor to finish off the stain removal.

Sometimes stains are a little tricky to clean. Our Heavy Traffic Pretreat & Spot Cleaner
is a powerful everyday cleaner that helps remove many spots and stains. It penetrates and loosens tough, oily carpet stains and embedded dirt, leaving behind a clean, fresh scent and no sticky residue. Heavy Traffic spray is non-caustic and does not contain bleach or phosphates. Use it on surfaces that you and your family touch every day: carpet, upholstery, area rugs, stairs, cushions, couches, car seats, and more.
To actually clean the stain, use the same steps as you would above. Gently scrape or blot up excess mess without pushing it down further into the carpet fibers. Then spray the area of the stain, and let it sit for a few minutes. Gently wipe in towards the center of the stain then gently pinch and lift out the middle.
The last step, to make sure that stains are gone for good, is to deep carpet clean with BISSELL Rental carpet deep cleaning machine. Find one near you
