Carpet Stain Removal

Stain removal can be the most challenging aspect of carpet cleaning. Wine, Juice drinks, coffee, pet accidents and household chemicals, can discolor your carpet. South Bay Carpet Cleaning uses unique techniques, and solutions to remove or greatly minimize stains including the following:

  • Wax
  • Paint
  • Fruit Drinks
  • Kool-Aid
  • Ink
  • Grease
  • Urine
  • Rust

Of course, not all stains can be removed and many of the common “grocery store” spotting agents can permanently set stains. Treat them as soon as possible. The longer you wait the more the stain will soak into the fibers. Immediately blot up as much of the liquid or debris as possible with a dry cloth or paper towel. Don’t rub or scrub the area with a rag, this damages the fibers and may create a permanent scar.

Use cold, not hot water to rinse the stained area completely. Hot water can set the stain and make it difficult if not impossible to remove. Press clean cloths deeply into the carpet to take up moisture until the stain no longer appears and schedule a cleaning with South Bay Carpet Cleaning.

If you have a stain the quicker it gets attention the greater likelihood it can be removed.
