Professional Spotting Techniques
No carpet cleaner can guarantee total removal of every stain found on carpet.
Fresh, relatively new stains are easier to remove than old, set ones. Old stains like urine, cordials, and deep coloured juices can dye the carpet and are impossible to remove. You can only expect to lighten the intensity of the colour.
Improper treatment of stains can make stains more difficult to remove.
Contrary to popular belief most spotters should be used after a carpet is extracted. The reason being that 95 - 98% of the stains will be removed during the cleaning process. There is only one exception to this rule. On heavily impacted tar, grease, gum or candle wax, a solvent spotter should be used, prior to wet cleaning.
Research Products GREASE RELEASE is one of the few water soluble solvent spotters on the market so even if it is used when the carpet is wet, it will activate although not as fast as on dry carpet.
It is the rinsing of any stain that ensures that it does not recur. Use a high volume of water in the rinsing cloth or sponge for carpet tiles, as these show wick-back more noticeably than tufted or Axminster carpet, no matter what fiber is used in construction.
A daily spotting/rinsing programme will ensure that the cleaning frequency is extended so as to reduce overall cleaning costs.
