For your personal perusal, the experts at O2 Cleaning have prepared the following mess-fighting tips:

After months of cooking for family and friends for the holidays, your stove top could probably use some extra attention this January. Sometimes that stove top gunk just won’t budge, but we can help! Our go-to product for this tough mess is Mrs. Meyer’s Surface Scrub, used if you select our “eco-friendly products” option! This non-scratching powder breaks through that week-old pie filling stuck around your burners, and the Lemon Verbena scent leaves your whole kitchen smelling squeaky clean.

Sometimes Aunt Barbara gets a little too excited at Christmas dinner, and her pinot noir ends up all over your new tablecloth. Don’t fret! We can save it. First things first, BLOT, don’t scrub. Second, grab the table salt and liberally apply to the stain. This will help pull the liquid from the fabric. Let the salt sit for a few minutes, then grab the dust-buster. Once the excess salt is vacuumed from the cloth, continue to blot until stain feels dry. Finally, cover the soiled area with Oxyclean (or hydrogen peroxide + laundry detergent for those who don’t have a stain fighter) and wash on a gentle setting. This should do the trick! And if not, looks like Aunt Barbara is buying you a new tablecloth.

Experts in the carpet cleaning realm, Mastercare understands that different types of carpet and upholstry require different cleaning treatments some might need extra treatments in an effort to get out carpet stains when they appear. Their knowledgeable team is ready to tackle your project with green cleaning products and deodorizers. They also now offer tile and stone cleaning. Restore the color of your dingy, discolored tile and grout.

When it comes to holiday dinner party stains, owner Luke Smith says don’t just grab whatever is under the sink:

This rarely gets the stain out and generally sets the stain in. My best advice is to just blot the stain as best you can with a towel and call us. We have much better success when the stain has not been treated by the homeowner. Even if you call us just for advice, that is free and usually will save some frustration and permanent stains in the long run.
