Some Spots Become Permanent Stains
There are so many different situations beyond our control that can cause a spot to become a permanent stain.
Most Common Reasons:
- Treating a spot or spill with common household cleaners or some special remedy found on the Internet. Often, the chemistry between the two react negatively and can set the spot in, creating a permanent stain. Also if left without a thorough rinsing, the residue continues to work on the spot causing permanent discoloration damage. This discoloration can be a bleaching effect where color is stripped away or a dying affect, where the color is altered a little or a lot. Residue left behind also attracts layers of soil like a magnet, hiding the stain over time until it’s revealed with the next cleaning and thought to be a new spot or stain.
- Pet urine is extremely damaging to fabrics and fibers. If left without proper treatment permanent staining may occur.
- Over wetting carpet down to the backing can cause the carpet backing color to bleed up to the carpet fiber tips creating a yellowish-brownish coloring. This can happen:
– Soaking an area too deeply when treating a spot .
– From hiring an uneducated, inexperienced “so called” professional cleaner who soaks the carpet too deeply and doesn’t extract enough back out.
– By doing it yourself with rental equipment.
- Sun fading happens from prolonged exposure to UV rays. The color is faded and is permanent unless dyed.
We can’t guarantee every single stain will come out because there are so many different variables beyond our control that can cause a stain to be permanent. No two situations are the same. Sometimes spots we didn’t think would come out, do come out. The only way to know for sure is to perform our cleaning. We can’t look at something and say for sure what the results will be.
