Spots vs. Stains

While we strive for complete removal of every spot and stain, sometimes permanent damage has been done to the carpet that is beyond cleaning. We refer to a "spot" as a mark or spill on the carpet that has not been permanently dyed or discolored and can be removed completely. Whereas a "stain" refers to a spot that has permanently dyed or discolored the carpet. Whether or not a certain spill will cause a spot or a stain is mainly down to two factors: What was spilled on the carpet, and What the fiber content of the carpet is.

Carpet is generally made of one of three main fibers: Polyester, Nylon, and Olefin. Polyester (which is the most common fiber) and Olefin are generally more receptive to advanced spot treatment. This is because these fibers do not have dye-receptors which would allow them to accept new dyes from various spills in the house. It is possible to permanently discolor these fibers, especially through the use of household cleaners and bleaches, however it is generally easier to remove spots from these carpets. Nylon, on the other hand, has dye receptors in the fibers, allowing them to accept new dyes from various spots and spills from things such as Coffee, Tea, Wine, Urine and other tannins (or natural dyes), or Food Coloring, Kool-Aid and other synthetically dyed juices, Makeup, Ink, and Hair Dye (or synthetic dyes). Through our Advanced Spot Treatment methods, we are still able to remove these spots in many cases, and dramatically lighten them in others, however it is important to keep in mind that sometimes these spots can become permanent stains and will need to go beyond cleaning to remove. In that rare case, we do offer Carpet Repair Services to keep your carpets looking their best. Nylon carpets can also suffer color loss, or discoloration from bleach and other household cleaners (even ones designed for carpet). In this case, we would generally be looking at a repair to fix this issue.

Why You Need Professional Advanced Stain Treatment Services

Bleach Damage from store bought stain treatment:

It may be tempting to deal with a stain or spot on your carpet right away but there are two things you must avoid doing at all costs:

  1. Never rub the spot or stain as this can spread the spot, distort the fibers, or grind the stain further into the fibers
  2. Do not pour excess water on the stain or spot

We generally do not recommend reaching for a store-bought household carpet cleaning solution or spot cleaner either. The problem with many of these is that at best they can temporarily remove or cover up the spot, but generally leave a sticky, soapy residue that attracts more dirt to the area. At worst, they can set the stain in question or cause bleaching, discoloration or color loss on some carpets.

At Decker's Carpet Cleaning, our experienced carpet cleaners and our advanced spot cleaning service is designed to get rid of tough and stubborn spots and stains. There's no need to go through expensive carpet replacement when you can get your carpet looking new once again.
