Cleaning Tips


At RapidClean Illawarra, we understand that effective stain removal combines quick action and the right techniques. Whether you're dealing with everyday spills or stubborn stains, our cleaning products are designed to make your life easier.  

Spotless Carpets 

  • Quick Response is Key 

            Act swiftly when a stain occurs. Blot up excess fluids with a towel or paper hand towel to prevent the stain from setting. 

  • Handle Solid Matter 

           If there's any solid matter on the carpet, gently scoop it up with an appropriate tool. 

  • Pre-Testing and Treatment 

           Before using chemical pre-treatments, test them on a small inconspicuous carpet area. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions and dilution notes. 

  • Blot, Don't Scrub 

           When treating a stain, use a blotting motion from the outside towards the center. Avoid scrubbing or brushing, as this can push the stain deeper into the carpet fibers. 

  • Know When to Seek Expert Help 

           Stop the treatment and consult a cleaning expert if you notice colour transfer from the carpet to your cloth.
