Spot Cleaning Tips…

Things To Keep On Hand

1. Enzyme detergent

2. Ammonia – 1 part ammonia to 3 parts water

3. Neutral detergent – laundry type 1 tablespoon to a pint of water

4. Solvent cleaner – De-Solv-It

5. White vinegar – 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water

6. A small brush for removing spots – Do not rub spot too hard or distortion of the carpet will occur

7. Blotting material – sponge and solid white paper towels

NOTE: Dry carpet as completely as possible immediately after spotting to avoid other damage. Direct stream of air from fan, a wet vacuum or hair dryer to hasten drying.

Spot Removal Procedures

Spots should be given attention immediately. The longer the spot sets, the greater chance of a permanent stain.

1. Blot up as much of the liquid as possible with a white paper towel. Paper towels with designs will transfer color onto the carpet.

2. Apply pressure on the towel to absorb more of the spot.

3. Repeat the step several times, turning the towel to a dry place each time.

Understanding Carpet Soil

To give us a better understanding of the cleaning methods we use and how they work, we first need to take a look at the problem of soil and its removal. Cleaning is not as simple matter since many variables are involved that will affect the end result. We can control some of the variables, others we can do little or nothing about. For maximum results, we need to utilize as many of the variables as we possibly can to assist us.

It is now recognized that carpets act as filters for the indoor environment, trapping soils, gasses, animal and human dander, and a host of other contaminants. Most actual soils are tracked in on peoples shoes, clothes, boxes, or in their hands. Others are generated as a by-product of some activity taking place such as grease from cooking, soot and dust from heating systems, and engine oil from the garage.

Soil can be described as any matter that is foreign to the basic construction of the carpet. It can further be described as being Real or Apparent. Real Soil, or actual soil is just that; a substance on the fibers that causes a change in appearance, feel, or smell. Examples are: sand, dirt, dog hair, food spills, oil, urine, and a never ending list of possibilities. The determining factor is that a foreign substance is present on or in the carpet, and its presence is causing some undesirable effect on the occupants or users of the area.

Regardless if the soil is real or apparent, the challenge we face is what, if anything, can we do to eliminate or lessen the negative effect.

REAL SOIL

It is estimated that 79% of all real soil that accumulates on carpets consists of sand and dry particulate matter. This type is often gritty and abrasive, and can contribute to the wearing of the carpet, and thus, produce a dull appearance. The remainder of the soil in carpets is composed of oils, greases, starches, etc. This type of soil is mostly acid by nature. For this reason, most carpet cleaning detergents are on the alkaline side of the pH scale. Alkaline cleaners neutralize this acid condition to enhance removal of the soil.

Cleaning residue in carpets is a major problem to the wearability and appearance of carpets, not to mention the carpet cleaner. Residue can cause rapid resoiling that will lower the appearance level of many carpets. The most difficult to remove soils are oils, tar, resin, and gum: those items that are sticky and tent to bond, cure or dry on the fiber. Those are the ones that require moisture, chemicals, and agitation to loosen and remove. Also frequently impossible, or difficult to remove are soils that are extremely small in size, or that contain dye or pigment that acts as a stain agent by actually sinking into the carpet fiber.

APPARENT SOIL

In addition to actual real soil, apparent soil can affect the appearance of a carpet. Apparent soil is not actually soil, but the appearance, feel, or smell that soil would cause if it were present. This can be such things as a shadow, pile distortion, light reflections, wear patterns, nap reversal, and scratches in the face fibers. The determining factor is that no soil is actually present to cause the change or condition, but it looks as if soil were present and causing the undesirable effect. Conditions which contribute to apparent soil include:

DARK AREAS OR TRAFFIC LANE GREY – The carpet appears to be soiled, but is actually clean. This is often due to a combination of factors such as scratches or fiber distortions due to wear, which will cause light to reflect at different angles instead of uniformly.

SHADING, WATER MARKS, POOLING & NAP REVERSAL – A condition in cut pile only where the pile lays in a different direction from the rest of the carpet, which causes light to reflect in such a way that the surface appears soiled or wet. Steam cleaning or pile lifting may temporarily improve the appearance, but it always comes back.

CORN ROWING – A condition in cut pile only where alternating rows of tufts bend over to fill in density voids in the carpet, thus creating a row like effect at right angles to the traffic patterns. Most noticeable at tips of fibers, they group together to form rows of varying widths, depending on the height and density of the yarns. According to carpet manufacturers, this is not a mill defect, but a characteristic of some cut pile carpets.

REFLECTIONS AND SHADOWS – These conditions are caused by reflections which make the carpet look light and dark due to un-obvious light sources. Examples would be: pin holes in draperies, light fixtures, shades and window coverings that allow concentrated light to focus on a specific area of carpet. Another source can be reflections of shiny objects such as mirrors, chrome, chair legs, and other items in a room or office. These can be identified by blocking the light source to the spot. Shadows cause a dark spot to appear, they can be eliminated by bringing in an alternate light source. The addition of an inspection light is invaluable at this point.

WEAR – Wear is a reduction in the amount of face fiber in traffic areas, especially as compared to non-traffic areas. To tire or exhaust, diminish by constant use, lose or cause to lose thickness or height by use, friction. A carpet fiber is said to have wear when there is an actual loss of face fiber.
