Your carpets are constantly subjected to a wide variety of soils depending on where your carpet is located. Such public areas are stained by chewing gum, candy, grease and oil spots, cigarette burns, food and beverage spills. If these soils are not taken care of immediately and are left on the carpet for a long time, they will be very difficult to remove.
So what are a spot and a stain? Are they the same or are they different? There is a lot of difference between a spot and a stain. A spot is a soluble substance that can be easily removed by a normal cleaning process while a stain is a substance that has dyed or altered a fabric or carpet fiber and may not be removed by a normal cleaning process. It is very difficult to remove a stain that is lighter than the fabric or carpet fiber and will be impossible to remove if it has really settled in for a long time in the carpet.It is important that you take prompt action for the removal of the stains and spots using proper chemicals and following correct procedures. Always keep in mind this important advice, remove the spot before it becomes a stain. Immediate attention is required if you want to maintain the cleanliness of your carpet.We recommend the following spot removal guidelines for your reference:
• Start spot removal treatment as soon as possible.
• Always test spotting fluid on carpet fiber.
• Apply water before and after most spotting procedures except ink.
• Use correct spotting fluid or chemicals.
• Remember to test the fiber in an inconspicuous area first before using the spot removal chemical.
• Following the manufacturer’s instructions carefully greatly helps.
