There are few things more frustrating than stains that reappear only days or weeks after you’ve had your carpets cleaned.
If you’ve ever wondered why this happens, here are a few insider tips as well as solutions to get rid of carpet stains for good.
Cause #1 – Residue Left Behind From Carpet Cleaning
While it’s easy to assume that a stain has come back, it’s actually more likely that it’s a new stain forming on sticky residue from carpet cleaning soap.
Steam cleaners use detergents that are extremely soapy. It’s almost guaranteed that too much soap was used or that the soap wasn’t rinsed out all the way—leaving behind an oily residue that attracts stains like a magnet.
Solution: Chem-Dry uses the power of carbonation in a non-toxic, zero-residue solution to lift stains to the surface and whisk them away for good. With Chem-Dry, no dirt-attracting residue will be deposited onto your carpet and the results will be longer lasting.
Cause #2 – Carpet Wicking From Too Much Moisture
Stains often seep beyond carpet fibers and deep into carpet padding and backing. Steam cleaners try to get to the source of the stain using large amounts of water, but aren’t powerful enough to extract the soapy moisture completely.
When the stain and moisture are left behind, they travels up the carpet strands as they dries. This is what an actual reappearing stain looks like.
Solution: Instead of steam cleaners, use a carpet cleaning method that uses less water, like Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction service. Chem-Dry uses the power of millions of carbonated bubbles to remove stains using 80% less water than steam cleaners. This is better for your floors and safer for your family and pets.
Cause #3 – Pet Stains And Odors
If animals are in the home, their urine is likely in multiple places on your carpet. As their urine dries, potent, odor-causing crystals are left behind in the carpet, backing, and padding. Most people expect the odor to go away when the urine dries, but this isn’t the case.
These odor crystals will continue releasing nasty smells in your home unless removed by professionals with a Pet Urine And Odor Removal Treatment.
Solution: Luckily, Chem-Dry’s Pet Urine Removal Treatment breaks these crystals down while simultaneously removing over 99% of bacteria.
