Cleaning & Removing Vomit Stains & Odors from Carpet, Rugs, Upholstery, Microfiber Couches & Mattresses in Anaheim CA

If you hear that little whimper and a child say that they don’t feel very good, you know the next thing coming up is the dreaded vomit. This is one of the hardest things to clean up and one thing that most people dread having to tackle. One of the biggest problems with cleaning up vomit is that you just can’t be sure exactly what the vomit is. Vomit can consist of anything that the sick person has eaten in that last few hours. Another issue is that cleaning up the vomit is usually put on hold while you tend to the person that is sick and needs your attention. It is bad for any spill to sit on the carpet fibers and left to soak into the padding; especially acidic vomit. Another problem that comes with cleaning vomit is that it is really a two part process. There are odor and stain that have to be dealt with.

Leading Carpet Cleaning has some reasons why it is hard to clean vomit and what you can do to help remove the stain and the odor.

Why is cleaning vomit so hard? There are several reasons that cleaning vomit is hard. The vomit is usually left on the carpet while the person that has gotten sick is being cared for. This means that the vomit can soak in and the stain will start to set in. It is also hard to clean because there are really two parts to cleaning a vomit stain. The first part is the stain that will need to be treated. The second part is that vomit leaves a lingering odor that can be very hard to eliminate.

How do you clean vomit from carpet & upholstery? There are several steps that you can take to start cleaning the vomit. The first step is to remove the excess vomit that may be laying on the carpeting. This might be the most uncomfortable part, but once you are done with that you can start the real cleaning. The next step is to use old rags or towels and start to dab away at the area. You do not want to scrub because this cannot only damage the fibers but push the stain out to a larger area. After you have dabbed away what you can add a layer of baking soda to help with the odor and to help soak up the excess liquid. You want to use the vacuum and remove the powder after it has sat on the area for about 10 minutes. Then you will start to clean the remaining stain with whatever cleaner you have spot tested on your carpet.
