  1. Tree Sap & Resin

Your beautiful tree can fill the room with Christmas spirit, but it can also do a number on your upholstered furniture, carpet and rugs. Tree sap and resin are made up of water, sugars and nutrients that leave behind sticky residue that can attract dirt and grime.

  1. Cranberry Sauce

It often seems that cranberry sauce ends up on the carpet more often than on the food. Cranberries produce a tannin stain which results in the red color you’ll often find left by cranberry spills.

  1. Red Wine

Red wine on your carpet does not get better with age. Wine, like cranberries, contains tannins which create tough stains to deal with on your own.

  1. Coffee

With a little less sleep and a lot more caffeine over the holidays, it’s hard to keep it all in the mug.

  1. Gravy

Gravy’s threat to your floors can be twofold: the oily residue from fat drippings, and the coloring often added by gravy packets.

  1. Snoot

If Santa brings more than presents with him down the chimney, the soot and ash can cause an unsightly mess.

  1. Oil

Whether it’s cooking oil or oil-based beauty products, water can spread the stain making it even worse. Oils also leave behind dirt attracting residues as well as stains that can become breeding grounds for bacteria.

  1. Pet Accidents

Visitors, parties and winter weather are a lot for your furry friends to deal with. In the event your pet leaves you any extra presents under the tree, we can help you out. No DIY solution can handle the odor and bacteria left behind. A professional cleaning is recommended to permanently handle and truly eliminate any stain and the odors right at the source.

  1. Candle Wax

While candles are great for gracing your nose with the scents of the season, the mess they can leave behind is doozy. The dyes in many candles can create tough stains in addition to the was residue.

  1. Dyed Frosting

Decorating Christmas cookies is a fun holiday activity, but it doesn’t come without risks. Frosting is another double threat: butter and food dye.

  1. Lipstick

The holidays present many opportunities (or obligations) to get dressed up. If you happen to have any small children around, you may find your makeup products leaving a trail through the house.

  1. Muddy Footprints

Winter weather delivers quite the beating on your home. Luckily you can make quick work of the wet, muddy or salty footprints tracked in by your loved ones. Shoes also often bring outdoor allergens like pollen into the home which can cause issues for allergy sufferers.
