As many homeowners can likely agree on, not all stains are the same. Some can be easily removed, where others can present a challenge, and few seem impossible. No matter the approach; which chemical you use, technique, or how many time you do it, some stains just can’t be beat, even for professionals. However, professionals can successfully remove more stubborn stains than the laymen.
Though most substances are removable, if not promptly treated, they can quickly become a stain that is permanent or recurring. However, there are some situations that will result in a permanent stain no matter what you do and we at Ameri-Best Carpet Cleaning would like to discuss these circumstances.
Note: It is essential that the care and warnings provided by carpet manufacturers be read and understood. Carpets comprised of natural comprised fibers and/or even specific dyes may require special treatment to get cleaned. If you are ever in doubt, call a professional.
Bleach, or bleach related products will permanently alter your carpet’s color in addition to these below substances, which no DIY method or professional cleaning can remove:
- Acidic-based toilet bowl cleaner
- Acne medication
- Alkaline-based drain cleaner
- Chlorinated bleach
- Hair dye
- Mustard containing turmeric
- Plant fertilizers
- Long-term pet urine stains
Much like human hair, the reason that certain chemicals will alter the carpet’s color and fiber is that nylon has dye sites that take color. Carpet is also made up of plastic which is made from products similar to plastic water bottles that can be compromised in contact with the wrong chemicals. In some instances, a carpet repair specialist can help.
Stain removal and cleaning by professionals is incredibly beneficial. Though the DIY method can be of assistance, and sometimes even successful in treating fresh spills. Trusting your carpet with a professional can ensure the stains are removed and most reputable carpet cleaning companies will honestly inform you if there is a stain that is impossible to remove. Carpet cleaning experts have the effective detergents and high-powered equipment that can cut through stains, combat odors, and extract the deep compacted dirt. Carpet cleaning professionals are beneficial for a number of ways, as with our training and expertise that can assess a unique problem and find optimal solutions. Understanding the composition of the different types of carpet fibers and the dyes maximizes our effectiveness with the use of powerful equipment and quality products. All in all, having a professional keeping your carpets clean, removing any spots and stains and neutralizing the odors is the most optimal way to keep your carpets clean.
Depending on the foot traffic, indoor pets, accident rate, and so on, carpets should be cleaned at least once a year, perhaps twice. Not only will professionals get the carpets free of spots and stains, but the carpets will be in prime condition and last to their projected lifespan and potentially longer, all the while looking incredible.
