How to Combat Reappearing Carpet Stains

how to combat reappearing carpet stains

It can be extremely frustrating to spend time, money, and effort removing an annoying carpet stain or odor when it just reappears a few days later. Many people often try using a DIY cleaning solution, store-bought chemicals, and some resort to calling up a steam cleaner in Long Beach. While these cleaners may make the spot looks good for a few days, the stain tends to gradually come back on the surface of your carpet.

Fortunately, Chem-Dry of Long Beach knows what’s causing this issue and how you can finally fix it!

Why do Stains Reappear?  

1. Too Much Moisture

If you called a steam cleaner to remove your carpet stain, they probably made the problem worse. Steam cleaners use a high amount of water to push stains deep into the carpet, making them “disappear.” But, their water extraction machine isn’t powerful enough to remove all of the excess water from your carpets. So, the stain and the water moisture get trapped in your carpet. As your carpet proceeds to absorb the stain and the carpet fibers start to dry, the stain gradually moves up the fibers. This causes the stain to reappear on the carpet’s surface.

How to Fix it

The next time you notice a stain on your carpet, don’t call a steam cleaner! At Chem-Dry of Long Beach, we use a unique Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) cleaning method for carpet cleaning in Long Beach, CA. This process uses 80% less water than steam cleaners and relies on the power of carbonation to clean your carpet

2. Leftover Cleaning Residue

Sometimes when a stain comes back, it’s not an old stain reappearing but a new one that has attached to leftover cleaning residue. Steam cleaners and store-bought carpet cleaning machines use heavy cleaning solutions filled with chemicals and soap. If too much soap is used on your carpet or if your carpet isn’t rinsed well enough afterward, these solutions leave behind a sticky residue that attracts dirt, dust, and other contaminants to your carpet.

How to Fix it

Again, Chem-Dry of Long Beach comes to the rescue! Our  cleaning solution doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals and is safe, so it doesn’t leave any residue on your carpet.

3. Pet Urine

Pets often repeatedly urinate in the same spot on your floors. Sometimes you immediately know when and where these accidents happen, but other times it may take you several days to notice them.  When your dog or cat urinates on your carpet, the moisture sinks into the carpet fibers as well as the carpet padding and backing. As the moisture dries, pungent, odor-filled urine crystals are left behind. Using a storebought or DIY cleaner may initially remove the urine odor, but the urine crystals stay trapped beneath the carpet and will continue to release unpleasant odors into your home unless properly removed.

How to Fix it

Our pet stain removal in Long Beach was specifically created to break down urine crystals and remove pet urine odors and stains for good.
