Beer has its associated benefits. However, should it get on your carpet, removing the spills and stains can be quite problematic. It can also leave a trail of a stench. When the spill occurs, you need to follow the stain removal rules.

First, blot the area to get rid of the unabsorbed beer from the carpet. A 1:4 mixture of household vinegar and warm water left on the carpet for about 2 minutes then dabbed should get the stain out. This should be followed by rinsing the carpet to remove the residue before drying.
If you are not handling the cleaning yourself, your second act after blotting should be to call the cleaner as soon as possible. If you are asking what should a house cleaner do? Here are some things to expect when you call him/her over.

The cleaner should know how to remove the stain and odor from your carpet. Although you can ask the cleaner to use a specific cleaning solution if you so prefer, s/he will likely have a solution that’s effective in removing beer stains.

The specifics of what the cleaner will do will depend on the service you requested. If you asked for carpet cleaning only, that’s what the cleaner will do. S/he should vacuum, remove stains, and wash it, and leave the carpet clean, dry, and smelling fresh.

It’s good to leave such tasks to the professionals if you don’t know how to do it well. Just ensure you have sufficient funds to pay the cleaner and throw in a tip if you so desire. Otherwise, you should learn how to do it yourself.
