You heard us right: boxes. One simple way to hide a stained carpet before the cleaners arrive is to use cardboard boxes. The reasoning can be anything at all. Maybe you’re moving some items from the basement or attic. Perhaps you’re donating a bunch of clothing to a local charity. Whatever the reason, no one will question it, and it will easily cover up your stain.
9. Caution Tape
OK, not really caution tape, but it’ll do the same job: just don’t let anybody go in the room with the stain. It might be as easy as simply not going in the room and directing people to a different one. Remember, this is your own house, so it’s unlikely that a guest will ask to see a random room. Your house, your rules! The mother-in-law will just have to deal with it.
With these tried and true methods, you should be able to hide your carpet stain until the pros arrive, no matter how big or nasty the mess. At the end of the day, no matter which option you choose, you need to make sure to have professional cleaners come by as soon as possible. Otherwise, a temporary stain can quickly become permanent.
