London carpet cleaning companies may be well positioned to help the capital’s residents combat tougher stains.
Individuals may be tempted to try their hand at removing stains from carpets, but in doing so they may be wise to follow some simple advice, industry veteran told the news provider.

And stains left after the worst of the mud has been removed can usually be tackled with a combination of warm water and vinegar, he added. “Eighty-six per cent of the discolouration on carpets is ground-up soil and the other 14 per cent are stains,” he told the news provider.
