Doesn’t it seem like your upholstered furniture is a mess magnet sometimes? We all do a lot of living on our couches and chairs, after all. Between spilled food, pet messes, wine and maybe even art supplies, stains just tend to end up on your upholstery and can be some of the toughest messes to clean up.

Or what about stairs? They’re one of the most well-traveled paths in our houses, especially if you have kids and pets. Over time, stairs get a build-up of foot prints, paw prints and all-around dinginess that, like upholstery messes, are not at all easy to deep clean. Thankfully, with the Hoover® Spotless Portable Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner you can clean your furniture and stairs with confidence in three simple steps.

1. Prep the space by clearing off pillows or blankets and use plastic wrap to cover surfaces you want to protect such as chair legs or balusters. If you’ve never deep cleaned your upholstery before, it’s also a good idea to check for colorfastness in an inconspicuous area.

2. Vacuum the surface to remove dirt, debris and pet hair. Use your vacuum’s upholstery brush on your furniture or stairs to easily get everything up before you deep clean to make sure your end-result is flawless.

3. Deep clean using the Hoover Spotless. Since it’s portable and super convenient, stains on your furniture or stairs are no problem. Use the hose and upholstery attachments to easily tackle these spots. And, Spotless has a self-cleaning hose so cleanup is a breeze!

And done! Deep cleaning stairs and upholstery can really be THAT simple!


Area rugs add a level of coziness to your home, but they also collect every memory—and every mess—your family leaves behind. Like right at the front door where the kids rush in with muddy shoes on a rainy day. Or that well-traveled area in front of your favorite spot on the couch.

 And while area rugs keep our hard floors clean and protected, they start looking pretty dirty over time as the messes pile up. Eventually, getting a fresh start can seem intimidating, but it’s really not a big deal with the when you’re equipped with the right deep-cleaning tools. Just follow these easy expert tips and those well-traveled spots will look like new in no time!

1. Vacuum thoroughly to remove surface dirt and pet hair. This step is important! Getting rid of all that surface debris before you deep clean will make sure your end-result is flawless. Use a powerful vacuum like the [WHAT VACUUM WOULD GO HERE? REACT? FUSION? NONE?] to ensure you get it all up.

2. Pre-treat stains like muddy paw print, pet accidents or set-in spills. Cover these spots with Hoover® pre-treat solution spray then give it time to do its job. The solution needs to sit for about 10 minutes to really tackle tougher stains.

3. Deep clean with a compact carpet cleaner like the Hoover PowerDash™. Its smaller size is perfect for cleaning small area rugs, high-traffic spots and tight spaces while still being super powerful for taking on whatever stains life throws down. Be sure to finish up with a few dry strokes without squeezing the trigger so your carpets dry quickly!

And there you have it! Clean area rugs that look and feel so refreshed. Keep these tips handy so deep cleaning can be seriously simple every time.


With a full, active household comes plenty of stains on the carpet. Way more stains than we all care to admit. From coffee spills to muddy paw prints to paint smears, messes and accidents can be a literal dark spot on your day. But hey, life happens! With the right tools and solutions, tackling your toughest stains doesn’t have to be a big deal. Keep reading for our expert stain removal tips.

Coffee stains
One misstep in a busy morning can send a full coffee mug straight to the floor with little time to clean it up, but you’ll want to act quickly on this one. Use a rag to blot up as much excess liquid as you can. Be sure you don’t rub the stain to avoid pushing the coffee further into the carpet.

After you blot, cover the spot in Hoover® Pre-treatment spray, and let the solution sit for about 10 minutes so it has time to break down the stain. Follow up by deep cleaning with a carpet cleaner like the Hoover SmartWash™ and you’ll be out the door in no time.

Mud is a common carpet nightmare, especially if you have kids or pets trekking in with muddy shoes or paws on rainy days. You’ll want to let the mud dry before you try to clean it up. This might seem counterintuitive but letting the mess dry will prevent it from becoming an even bigger problem. Once the mud is dry, thoroughly vacuum the area. You’ll want to vacuum slower than usual to pick up as much as possible before deep cleaning

For bigger, tougher stains, spray the spot with Hoover’s Pre-treatment spray, letting it sit for about 10 minutes so it can do its job. Finally, finish up with a powerful deep-cleaning carpet cleaner. We recommend something compact like the Hoover PowerDash™ if you’re cleaning on an entryway rug or in a high-traffic area

If you have a budding artist in your family, then it’s safe to say paint has missed the paper and made its way onto the carpet at least once. If you’re lucky enough to catch it while it’s wet, blot up as much of the paint as possible before using a carpet cleaner on the area.

Don’t worry, you can still clean it up if the paint’s dry with just a few extra steps. Start by covering the area with Hoover Pre-treatment Spray, then spread a warm, wet rag over the stain to help loosen the paint as the pre-treat works its way into the carpet. Once the paint is softened, use a dull knife to scrape up the excess then use the Hoover SmartWash to tackle the mess once and for all.

You don’t have to let a little bit of spilled red wine ruin your next get-together! Jump on blotting up the excess liquid as quickly as possible. Remember, don’t rub the wine into the carpet! If you don’t want to deal with a full-on clean right away, sprinkle salt on the blotted stain to continue to absorb some of the wine. Simply vacuum it up post-party and continue with the deep cleaning process.

For a particularly tough wine stain, use Hoover’s Pre-treatment spray as directed. Finish up with a super powerful carpet cleaner, like the Hoover SmartWash to get your carpet back to pre-stain status. Use the carpet cleaner slowly to ensure it has plenty of time to lift the stain!

Food spills
Dinnertime can have a messy outcome, especially when lasagna is involved. When any food hits the floor, start by scooping up as much of the solid mess as possible, being careful to not spread it around even more. If excess liquid remains on the carpet, blot that up too.

Then, tackle the mess with a powerful carpet cleaner. If the food spill landed on an upholstered dining chair or another piece of furniture, just use your carpet cleaner’s hose and upholstery attachments for a hassle-free clean up.
