Residential & Commercial Repair Services
Stubborn & Permanent
removal is used to remove stubborn stains that don't come out
with regular carpet cleaning. Just because stains don't come
out with a normal carpet cleaning doesn't mean that you didn't
get your money's worth. Think of it this way, if you dyed your
hair and it all came out in the shower when you shampooed your
hair you'd be upset, especially if you paid for the service at
a hair salon. Dyes, man made or natural shouldn't come out with
just detergent and water, it takes a lot more effort . . . and
that is where we come in. Red wine, coffee, orange juice, blueberries,
blood, urine etc. are all examples of different types of dye
stains. We can definitely get them all out.
Burns, Runs, Snags & Minor Carpet Repairs:
or lighter burns, runs, snags, holes, tears etc are all repairable
either with fiber transplants or grafting in new
pieces etc. If an area of color loss or a stain is too severe for
our other treatments, this is a very logical solution and it's
use spot dyeing to restore bleach spots, sun or ozone fading
and other types of chemical color loss. Using the three primary
colors, we can restore any carpet color from any degree of color
loss as long as the fibers are intact.
1. When it comes to bleach spots, the best thing you can do is take
1 part white vinegar and 1 part water and saturate the area of color
loss. Let it sit for at least 20 minutes and then blot with a towel.
This will stop the caustic action of the bleach and allow you time
to call us to set up a time to do a color repair for you. When we
arrive, we will neutralize the bleach with a product specially designed
for that purpose that has anti chlor agents in it. Even if the bleach
spot has been there for a long time you would still want to do this
prior to us coming. BLEACH NEVER STOPS WORKING.EVER! It will keep
reactivating with the changes in humidity and it can't be neutralized
with water, that only weakens it a bit but spreads it more which
will cause more damage.
2. When in doubt, call us. The more you do or add to a stain the
more difficult it makes it for us and the more costly it becomes
to repair. Most of the time when we arrive on scene the situation
is nothing short of chemical warfare before we have even looked at
3. Never rub or scrub your carpet fibers as this will damage the
fibers and spread the stain.
4. Do not, under any circumstances, use your carpet as an underlay
for an interior BBQ pit.
5. Many people may not be aware that frequent and thorough vacuuming
is one of the most important (and easiest) things you can do to help
retain your carpet's original appearance.
6. Professional carpet cleanings every 18 months are also an important
part of a regular carpet care regimen, and investing in a carpet
shampooer, wet/dry vacuum, or steam vacuum is also a good idea for
interim carpet maintenance.
7. You need some sort of initial line of defense for dirt. Mats are
the most popular and most practical. People who have a mat at their
front door (fuzzy ones are the best) reduce the amount of dirt being
tracked in by everyone coming in. When people see a mat they immediately,
without thinking, wipe their shoes on it. It has become the custom
now to remove your shoes when you walk into someone's home but mats
are still a great initial barrier to employ.
