Know About the Two Types of Stains
With carpets, there are two types of stains and you should know how to identify which type of stain is on your carpet. Stains react with fabrics quite differently depending on the type of stain it is. Knowing the type of stain on your carpet will allow you to choose the correct way and method to deal with them. You will also have a better chance of removing them when they happen.
These types of stains can be very tricky because they are supercharged with stain-causing particles which can spell disaster for your carpet. Organic stains are tough because they are carbon-based and made up of cells that are very stubborn when they have to be broken down. Although “organic food” is a popular term these days because of their natural taste, great flavor, and nutrition, they also contain ingredients that cause the most stubborn and vibrant stains on carpets.
Some examples of organic stain makers include:
- Plant-based materials or liquids
- Certain fruits and vegetables
Synthetic stains are caused by man-made items that consist of a different set of chemical components that are also often tough to break down. These types of stains require certain cleaning solutions to get them out. These stains also cost more to remove because we often have to repeat the cleaning process two or three times to get them out.
Some examples of synthetic stains include:
- Red food dyes
- Blues, Greens
- Adhesives (glue, paint, varnish)
- Shoe polish
- Candle wax
- Health and beauty products
- Furniture marks
Stains That Hide
When we are cleaning carpets, we often run into situations where we suddenly see a red stain appear. When certain stain makers (like Kool-Aid for example) get spilled onto carpets, the stain remains if left untreated. Over time, soil begins to collect on the top of the stain and it will eventually change color.
Many people will think that the stain is just an organic stain caused by dirt by the time they notice it or when they decide to give us a call to provide a cleaning. However, when we remove the dirt from the top layer of the stain, customers are often shocked to find out that there is a synthetic stain hiding underneath. As mentioned, these stains are often harder to treat which is why you should call the professionals whenever you have a synthetic stain on your carpet.
Removing Urine Odors and Stains
People who have pets such as medium-to-large dogs, as well as cats, often experience urine stains that are very hard to get out. These stains go into the padding of the carpet which is a much deeper layer beneath carpet fibers. There is usually a higher cost associated with these types of stains because the process to remove them takes more time and detail.
The process to clean these types of stains involve:
1. Putting a special cleaning solution down
2. Waiting 30 minutes to loosen the stain
3. Using our subsurface extraction tool to suction out all of the solution and urine stain together
4. Proceeding with the normal carpet cleaning process
5. Restoring the carpet so that it is completely clean
In the past, when there were no powerful stain removing machines and tools, carpet cleaners would actually have to pull back the carpet to clean the padding underneath.
There is also another special type of stain called friction stains. These stains are caused by heat that is generated due to friction when a material comes in contact with the carpet. An example would be when the black rubber of a chair rubs against the carpet. When furniture color dyes come in contact with carpets and friction is created, they can melt into carpet fibers and cause a friction stain. To remove these types of stains, you will need the help of a professional to get the stain totally removed.
