40% of Homeowners Consider Wine as their Most-Feared Carpet Stain During the Holidays

Manchester, NH

Carpet One Floor & Home confirms wine as the #1 feared carpet stain during the holidays by homeowners in a recent survey. In addition to the nearly 40% of homeowners that selected wine as their most-feared stain, survey results indicated candle wax to also be a leading cause of concern. To help customers combat these two holiday staples, Carpet One Floor & Home is taking from their Stain First Aid app to share simple, step-by-step cleaning techniques for the two most-dreaded holiday stains.

Candle Wax

Candles add ambiance to holiday gatherings and fill the house with seasonal scents. Although some may avoid candles because they fear a drip or a spill will ruin their carpets, there is no need to worry. Carpet One Floor & Home offers a Stain First Aid app that provides easy instructions. For this particular stain, all that is needed are a few simple household supplies: knife, clothes iron, and brown paper bags.

Red Wine

Wine is certainly a holiday party favorite. While some may insist their guests drink only white wine to avoid stains, there’s no need to avoid red wine. Guests can mingle freely this holiday season, with Stain First Aid and these simple supplies on hand: cleaning detergent, warm water, white vinegar, white towels, sponge, paper towels, and books.

Watch the simple, step-by-step process and see the red wine disappear.

In addition to the stain-tackling techniques for red wine and candle wax, Carpet One Floor & Home’s Stain First Aid app covers over 50 of the most common household stains. The easy-to-use tool – available on both Apple and Android devices – helps to keep customers’ carpets looking beautiful year-round.
