Rug and Stain Removal Lookup Tool


IMPORTANT: We always recommend that if you have a carpet or rug stain that you contact a licensed, experienced, professional to have it removed.  In many instances attempting to remove the stain yourself can further damage the rug, or irrevocably ruin it.  If it’s an older rug, antique rug, heirloom rug, rare rug, exotic rug, highly valued rug, or is collectible we recommend it always be handled only by an expert carpet and rug cleaner.  McFarlands Carpet & Rug Repair, Service & Sales uses industry standard methods plus a proprietary secret process to remove even the toughest of rug stains.  

If you choose to attempt to remove the stain yourself using the Rug Stain Removal Tool below, you agree that you do so at your own risk and that McFarlands Carpet does not accept any responsibility or liability for any loss or damages.  All instructions below are provided as general guidance only.  For a printable index, please download our Carpet and Rug Printable Brochure. If after trying the following stain removal techniques the stain is still there, you will require professional carpet and rug cleaning services to remove the stain.  Please use our Online Carpet and Rug Cleaning Estimator to obtain an estimate for our expert carpet and rug technicians to professionally remove your carpet or rug stain.  Then, contact or call us at (602) 244-9329 to make arrangements to have your rug professionally serviced.
