Most spots can be removed easily if the excess is lifted or blotted and the area is treated immediately by carpet owners with plain water or with spotters containing mild (ph range of 5-9) diluted detergents that do not leave a residue. If ignored, those spots, or components thereof, may bond with fiber dye sites forming permanent stains. Stain removal is much easier if the stain is worked on as quickly as possible.
Along with treating a stain quickly, it is important to know what caused the stain. Unfortunately there is no single stain removal product that will take care of all stains on the market even though there is a large selection of carpet stain removal products available. This is because each stain must be treated with an appropriate solution, or series of solutions, to break the bond it develops with the fabric. Some of these products will get the spot out and others probably will not, but almost all of them are missing one key step. They give you instructions to apply the chemical to the spot, when then what? The chemical remains in the carpet, right? Be sure the next step they give you is to try and blot out that chemical with water. This will help you avoid a sticky residue that attracts more dirt over time. If you've used our services before, we offer a free bottle of spotter that is safe for your carpet, family and pets and still works well on MOST spots.
Has your pet had an accident involving urine, feces or vomit? Many times, especially with urine, these cannot be removed using normal cleaning procedures especially if they get into the pad. We have stain removal methods and solutions to remove most of these completely. We can even identify urine spots using a special light.
Urine can affect the dyes used in carpet. Successful stain removal is dependent upon the content of the urine, the dyes and finish used, and the time elapsed after the deposit. Some urine spots may be immediately noticeable, while others may take weeks or months for a reaction. The dyes may possibly change color immediately after contact with urine. The types of damage from pet stains can be diverse and are dependent upon the makeup of the urine. Urine content can change because of the pets diet, medication, age, health, sex and reproductive cycles. Because of these variations, some urine stains might not be removed.
We can also help to take care of odors. There are things available on the market to combat odor, but most simply mask the odor for a period of time. Most odor comes back during times of humidity. Recently, enzymes, available at pet stores and veterinary offices have been developed that are better and more effective; but often leave you with a somewhat visible stain. They do not give the results that a professional carpet cleaning will give you.
If your pets have had accidents in your home, you can be sure visitors can smell it, even if you can't! That's why you should call a professional-not go to the store for another product that does half the job.
