How to Remove Brown Water Stains on a Carpet

Every day I get asked, how do I get out stains from a carpet? One of the ones I get asked every now and then is that I had a water leak and the water dried and it left these brown water stains. What do I do to get those out?

How to remove brown water stains on a carpet

Great question. What we’re going to do is we’re going to take our home remedy of spot cleaner. That’s your warm water in a spray bottle with some dish detergent mixed in. You’re going to spray it on that area. Once you spray it on, let it sit for a little bit and then you want to gently rub it your white cloth.

Why a white cloth? Something of a different colour could bleed into the carpet, so you don’t want that. So you take your white cloth, go over the area, wipe it up gently, and then you want to take your shop vac. The shop vac is going to make sure all the moisture or as much as possible is removed from that area, going over it. So I hope this home remedy for getting out those brown water stains helped.
