Getting hard-to-remove stains out of your carpet, can be
very frustrating, and many people make the mistake of
trying to remove these stubborn stains on their own.
So before you try your hand at carpet stain removal,
here are a couple things to keep in mind!
When something stains your carpet you should be thinking about chemicals and PH.
Tar is petroleum based. Coffee is an acid-based beverage with tough tannin. Red Kool-Aid
has a red dye. Red wine has natural colors and tannin from the skin of the grape.
Why is the "type of stain" so important?
Each fiber of the carpet has a chemical component and it attracts and binds more securely
with certain stains.
For example, a nylon carpet likes acid dyes. This is why Kool-Aid being an acid will easily
stain a nylon carpet.
Oily soils will bind to olefin. Because of this a bit of tar on an olefin carpet is going to be
much more difficult to remove than a bit of tar on a nylon carpet. It normally rejects
natural juices, tannins, and other acid dyes.
Polyester is similar to olefin because it also is attracted to oily soils, but doesn't bind easily
to normal liquid spills, including coffee, tea, wine, juice and other acid dye stains.
Whatever type of carpet you're working with, the stain can normally be removed if you
do your research and apply the proper chemicals. Applying the wrong chemicals to your
carpet can actually do permanent damage and still leave the stain. Nobody wants that!
