Top Stain Removal related questions

When should you work with a professional stain removal service?

You should call in professional stain removal services if you try to remove a stain but it doesn't budge, or if it was caused by a strong substance such as wine or ink.

How do you remove old stains from fabric?

Removing old stains from fabric (like couches) is no easy task, especially if it won’t fit in your wash. Techniques depend on the stain and fabric type, but your cleaner may use a foaming or spray-on stain remover to break down the stain before rinsing or steam cleaning all over.

Are some stains permanent and impossible to remove?

Yes. Some stains are more stubborn than others, and time and heat can set some stains. The only way to know if a stain is permanent is to hire a professional stain remover to assess your stain and try a combination of cleaning methods.

What are some common stain removal methods?

There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to stain removal, but common stain removal methods involve water, sunlight, chemicals, agitation, and in some cases, heat.

How long does stain removal normally take?

The time it will take to remove a stain will depend on the size of the stain, the surface type, and how long the stain has been there. In general, you’ll need to allow for 30 minutes to 2 hours per stained item.

How much does a stain removal service cost?

Stain removal on Airtasker will typically cost between $70-$130. Your stain removal service could cost more or less, depending on the size of the stain and the treatments required.

What does a stain removal service include?

Stain removal might be bundled into another service (like steam cleaning) or it might be standalone. Either way, your cleaner will work to identify the stain before choosing a method that will help break down your stain without damaging the surface it’s on. Here’s what you can expect from some of the most common stain removal services:

Carpet stain removal

Most carpets are regularly exposed to shoes, food, drinks, and pets. So carpet staining is a given, from wine and ink marks to blood and even pet urine. The treatment your stain removal professional recommends will depend on the type of carpet you have (whether wool or synthetic). They’ll blot to remove excess (especially if your stain hasn’t yet set) and will apply a specially designed carpet stain removal product that will break down the stain for further blotting. Depending on how tough the stain is, your carpet may need a follow-up treatment, but most stains will come out first-go.

Couch stain removal

TV dinners are a thing for many families, and with that territory comes couch stains. Your cleaner will start by vacuuming the couch to remove surface dirt and dust. They’ll check the care label for instructions and determine the best treatment for your couch’s material. Generally, they’ll spot clean for stains before cleaning all over with a steam cleaner. Your cleaner will open some windows and turn on the fan to help your cleaned couch dry faster.

Mattress stain removal 

Mattress stain removal tackles all sorts of stains from sweat to coffee. Similar to other types of upholstery cleaning, your cleaner will start by vacuuming up surface dirt. Next, they’ll spot clean stains with a stain remover before steam cleaning the whole surface of your mattress. Your freshly cleaned mattress will look brand new! Your cleaner will advise on how much time it’ll take before your mattress is dry enough to make the bed and sleep on - usually, it’ll be ready by nightfall, though.
