How to Clean Resistant Stains in a Non-Toxic Way
The difference between a Spot and a Stain
The first thing we need to understand is that there are various forms of staining. That’s Awesome Stain Remover is imperative to getting the best results when treating most of these stains, but you also need to understand the difference between a spot and a stain.
Usually, a spot is the result of a recent accident and when treated quickly, can be removed with relative ease as it has only affected the outer fibres of the carpet. A stain, however, can permanently damage the carpet or upholstery fibre by either adding or removing colour. This can happen due to the artificial and natural dyes in substances including food, drink and chemicals.
What role does heat play?
More often than not, heat can play a vital role in the result of a stain.
Heat can open up the individual fibres of the carpet, allowing them to absorb the dye. In many cases, when the spillage cools, the threads shut, and the stain is set.
Cold spillages are not as susceptible to dye migration. It is important to note that it is impossible to restore damaged fibres or replace migrated colour.
Problems with the traditional cleaning methods
Too often, other cleaning methods only compound the problem. Use of dishwashing liquid, detergent, bleach and water will only damage and spread the stain further into the backing of the carpet.
There are times when it can look as though the stain is coming out. However, once the moisture evaporates, the stain reappears on the surface (by capillary action), only this time causing a larger area to be affected.
These methods force the stain (now in liquid form) deeper into the inaccessible backing of the carpet. When the moisture is gone, you are left with a sticky residue. This will re-surface and depending on the stain substance, some of these methods will initially mask the odour only for it to come back sooner rather than later.
