Cleaning up after Halloween

Halloween has come and gone, and for most of Melbourne, this meant being able to celebrate with reduced restrictions. Having the extra time and freedoms to be able to enjoy these moments with friends and family is something that we all deserve. One thing that we probably don’t deserve, however, is the clean up that’s quite often required afterwards!

Halloween clean up

Now that the fun has died down, it’s time to reassess the aftermath of the event. If you’re anything like most families, chances are you have some type of either pumpkin stain, lolly stain or spilt makeup covering your carpets and sofas. If you’ve attempted to remove these stains on your own but have been unsuccessful, here are a few reasons why you should look to get some assistance.

Lolly and pumpkin stains

Although these stains may look harmless at first, the sweetness from the pumpkin and lollies can attract unwanted guests such as ants and cockroaches. Furthermore, when the temperature starts warming up a little, these surfaces will become sticky which can cause dirt and dust to become trapped within the stain. If a simple DIY solution hasn’t resolved your problem, we highly recommend looking to a professional cleaning company to assist. The same goes for spilt make up.

Make up stains

It’s very easy to drop some eye shadow or facepaint on the ground when preparing for a spooky night out. The instant response will be to scrub like crazy but this will more often than not lead to the stain spreading. If you can, try to absorb as much of the spill as possible with a slightly damp cloth and just gently dab around the area. Take care not to press the stain deeper into the carpet fibres.

Professional cleaning services

Through the process of hot water extraction, a lot of these stains and spooky leftovers can be removed.  This will mean your carpets, sofa, lounges etc., will remain odour-free and stain-free for much longer. Getting deep within the fibres of these surfaces is crucial to removing stains and odours, and it becomes extremely difficult to do without the right equipment and experience.
