DIY Spot Cleaning

Should you or shouldn’t you try to clean a spot by yourself?  Many minor accidents can be treated using Do-It-Yourself methods, while some cannot.

It really is better to be safe than sorry, and to err on the side of caution with your valuable floor and upholstery coverings. If you are unsure about what to do, call our office for advice at 949-388-2313 or email  Or, you may want to schedule a SaniTech spot-cleaning appointment.


Before you start spotting, consider the following:

For any DIY attempt, do not use inferior spotting solutions.  These chemical-laden, detergent-filled solutions will leave behind sticky residue, which will attract soil like a magnet and result in a worse problem.

Do use PROCYON®, the same cleaning solution that we use at SaniTech: it is a fantastic product, and it has revolutionized the way we get results in our professional cleaning services.  We can provide a complimentary spotter bottle at your next cleaning appointment or you can purchase PROCYON®, which is sold exclusively at Denaults True Value Hardware Stores:

Follow the directions as listed on the PROCYON® bottle to remove most household spots.

If you you are unable to obtain PROCYON®, you can refer to the following chart of common spots and their solutions. SaniTech cannot be held liable for any damages that may result from your own DIY attempts.
