Carpet Cleaners in Las Cruces NM Conquer Stubborn Red Stains

Monday, September 13th, 2010

Ever study a red carpet stain carefully? If you look closely you’ll notice that the red color on the affected area is either bright or shiny and looks like the red liquid in a Gatorade bottle or subsequently it looks dull and somewhat dark like wine or old dried up blood. Study these stains a little more and you’ll learn they are removed differently too. For example, most over the counter red stain removal products like Oxyclean for Carpet contain oxidizers that work well on natural or vegetable dyes including red wine stains. Unfortunately, most spills are actually caused by foods that contain artificial or synthetic dyes and these products have very little or no success on removing synthetic stains. This can be very frustrating when embarrassing spots are located in the middle of a room where homeowners can’t simply hide them with a plant or piece of furniture.

Here’s a great article written by Jeff Cross, senior editor for Cleanfax Magazine titled: Remove the Red. Mr. Cross discusses the difference between red stains caused by synthetic dyes versus organic dyes and how to remove each.

I get calls every day in my Las Cruces carpet cleaning business from people that have red stains on their carpet. Some say they were caused by wine spills while others say their red spots were accidental Kool Aid or fruit juice spills. Both are red in color but are removed using completely opposite solutions and techniques. Be sure to consult with a reputable and experienced professional carpet cleaner before attempting to remove a red stain. Using the wrong solutions and techniques can set unwanted color permanently.

The answer is simple! They do not understand that pet urine is a complex problem. First… it is invisible and if not completely located, then the smell will persist.

Every wonder what carpet cleaners do to get better results? The answer is simple: they adopt the use of rotary jet extraction tools like the one in this carpet cleaning video. Rotary tools help agitate the carpet like no other tool on the market. It helps break up heavy soil build up and separates yarns so they get cleaned from all four sides. As a bonus, this tool never tires so carpet cleaners in Las Cruces using this tool never become exhausted before the end of the work day. This is important to clients who desire a good quality job.

Consumers in Las Cruces can be confident knowing that one carpet cleaning company provides rotary jet extraction on every job. The results they deliver are the same on every job… EXCELLENT! But BEWARE… 98% of all carpet cleaners in Las Cruces do not use rotary jet extractors. Instead they’ve decided it’s better to leave behind twice a much moisture (soaking wet carpets), twice as much cleaning residues (that lead to rapid resoiling) and remove only half the soil found in dirty carpets.
