Stain Removal

We’re the Pros at Tackling Stains

When it comes to carpet and upholstery stain removal, experience counts! That’s why First Choice has several strategies, each matched to a different kind of stain. We are experts at pet stains. We also treat stains on upholstery as well as area and oriental rugs.

Example: Red Dye Stain Removal

Did you sit on your white couch with a new red T-shirt that was soaking wet or spill juice or red wine? Don’t worry! First Choice has it covered. For red dye stains, we do a heat transfer process with a 2-part solution. We then use a wet towel and heat it with an iron so that the stain transfers to the towel. We dry the area before we leave to see if there are any reactions and to be sure the stain is gone.

Remove the Stain, Not the Color!

When you remove a stain, you want to keep the original fabric’s fiber integrity and original color intact. We’re tough on stains, but gentle on fabric, carpet fiber and original dye color. There’s nothing worse than trying to remove a stain yourself with a harsh chemical product, and find you are left with fading, color bleeding, or a “bleached out” look.

When to Call First Choice for Stain Removal:

  • We can schedule you quickly for unexpected stains and carpet cleaning emergencies — the sooner you call, the better! DON’T just use any cleaner you think might work. CALL FIRST, otherwise you might “set” the stain or hurt the color of your carpet or fabric.
  • We treat pet stains, food stains, wine, grass, urine, vomit, blood, grease and oil, make-up, and more!
  • We can do stain removal as a separate service, or as part of a wall-to-wall carpet cleaning.
  • If we can’t get the stain out, we’ll let you know. If we treat a stain and you are not satisfied, we’ll return and treat it again until it’s right!
I have used First Choice for several years…They removed stains other companies couldn’t because they know which cleaning product/process to use for specific stains. My traffic areas stay cleaner longer due to their deep carpet cleaning process. The company does quality work and does follow-up calls. First Choice really does care about their customers and takes pride in the job they do
Lynn Torre, Glen Ellyn
Our family has been a loyal customer of First Choice for 21 years. The technician’s attention when cleaning our carpeting, upholstery, and flooring is without equal. We have had 2 dogs, 3 children and a variety of spots, stains, pet accidents, and assorted cleaning dilemmas. First Choice always found a solution to remedy our carpet cleaning situations to our complete satisfaction…It’s not easy to find a company that performs the work at a price that balances cost along with quality.

Exceptional service! Our carpet looks amazing! We can’t believe how clean Paul was able to make our stairs look! I will continue to recommend his service to everyone I know!
Donna Teagle, Residential Customer
We’ve used Paul’s services multiple times since we moved into our home more than 12 years ago. The results from the very first cleaning back then were nothing short of amazing, and subsequently, our carpets continue to look just great. Professional, personable, does what he says he’s going to do. Outstanding value!
Chris Murin, Residential Customer
Very satisfied with First Choice Carpet Cleaner. They were professional and explained the process from start to finish. They were able to get out a lot of stains from plants and spilled beverages. Will definitely hire them again for both business and residential jobs.

Top Notch performance. Considerably better than previous providers. I am sticking with them. They gave me valuable advice that will help me to maintain my carpets between professional cleanings. Very professional, congenial and efficient. The Best.

We have used First Choice in two houses we have owned. Having kids or animals, like most of us do, you never know what is going to be spilled or tracked in on the carpet or furniture. Their professional and knowledgeable staff always remove all of our stains. They clean our furniture, put protective coating back on to seal the fibers, then dry with blowers before leaving. We have referred First Choice to several people we know and we love the referral program they have.

I have used Paul’s services several times and have been extremely happy with the results. Carpets and furniture (2 large sectionals) looked amazing. I highly recommend Paul. He’s a great guy and does a great job!!
Christine Catalano, Residential Customer
Paul is very knowledgeable and conscientious about his services. He and his crew did a great job in my office. Thank you!
Judith Schening
Paul was fantastic. Showed up on time, measured and gave me a quote that was very close to his original estimate. The job turned out to be tougher than expected (paint in carpet) and it took a little longer than planned but Paul stuck with his original quote. I would have paid more for the great job they did. I’d certainly use them again!
