For any liquid spills, you will want to blot the area to remove the liquid instead of rubbing. More liquid will be absorbed through blotting. Rubbing will only push it further into the carpet squares. Then, use water to help dilute the spill if needed.
Be careful before you use any chemicals on your carpet squares. Harsh chemicals can do more harm than good in some cases. Hot water and a little vinegar will remove many stains without damaging your carpet squares.
One advantage of using carpet squares is that you can buy a few extra, so if a stain can’t be removed, you can replace the square. The downside is if the wear on the new square is different than the old square it will be quite noticeable.
To solve this issue, use a square from an area this is not as noticeable such as under a table. Then the wear pattern will be similar and the new square can be placed where it won’t be seen.
Often, the best solution is to hire a professional carpet cleaning company. They will have the tools and know-how to get the job done right and quickly.
