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.



  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.
