Water rings or stains can form a ring-shaped mineral deposit in carpet. As a general rule, wet moves to dry; so as the moisture spreads, any contaminants that are in whatever spilled (such as from a leak in the ceiling or a dripping pipe) are pushed to the outside of the spill. This deposit can extend deep into the pile and spread out as far as the water traveled.
Here's the vital step that should not be missed when treating water rings: be sure to treat not only the surface staining but also at least 3–4 inches around the visible ring. That's because mineral deposits and other contaminants have often traveled much farther than the naked eye can see. If the outer area is not thoroughly treated, the problem often recurs and leads to customer complaints.
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.
