Re-soiling Spot Removal from Carpet

 

How to Treat Re-Soiling Spots in Carpet

Re-soiling occurs when the carpet has a chemical residue left over, or if not all of a sticky substance was removed from the carpet in the initial cleaning.  Re-soiling typically occurs 1-2 weeks after cleaning when the sticky leftover residue attracts more soil.

 

If the soil is showing up right after the carpet dries, however, this is a problem called "wicking" and there are different procedures for addressing it. The option given below is to remove chemical residue.

 

Directions:

  1. Using an extraction machine, clean the area with Matrix All Fiber Rinse diluted at 1-2 ounces per gallon of water.
  2. Speed dry with air movers.

 

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