Helping You Make Our World a Cleaner, Safer Place

Olefin Carpet

Olefin is an oil-loving fiber made from synthetic polypropylene. It is an inexpensive synthetic fiber and is commonly found in commercial settings. Olefinis popular due to its ability to resist staining. It is solution dyed, meaning the dye is consistent throughout the fiber, so there are no dye sites for other dyes to attack. For this reason, it cannot be dyed on location. Olefin is susceptible to heat and will melt in the presence of high heat. To avoid damage, keep the temperature down to less than 212°F. Due to its oil-loving properties, olefin attracts oil, which can “yellow out” the fiber. This yellowing is difficult, if not impossible, to remove. Olefin is lighter than water, so the chemical test to see if a fiber is olefin is to put the fiber in a glass of water and see if it floats.

Basic Method

  1. Vacuum the entire carpeted area.
  2. Using a pump-up sprayer, apply Matrix Olefin Traffic Lane Cleaner diluted at 4-6 oz per gallon of water.
  3. Using an extraction machine, extract with Matrix All Fiber Rinse diluted at 4-6 oz per gallon of water.

Warning and Cautions: Always test material for colorfastness, follow label directions, and never mix product unless specified in the label directions. Each situation reacts differently and results may vary.
