Specialty Stain Removal

You had a firm, sure grip on that pitcher of fruit punch . . . . you thought! Sometimes carpet has soiling that goes beyond the usual, and the usual cleaning methods simply don't work. At A1, we can't work miracles, but some of our customers feel we've come close.

A1's IICRC-certified technicians take continuing education courses to learn how to remove some of the most stubborn soils and stains, employing skills, experience, tools and technology not available to the general public. Some of the things that give us a leg up on really tough stains are:

  • Truck mounted steam cleaning equipment
  • Water at 220-240 degrees
  • High pressure cleaning
  • Up to 1,200 pounds p.s.i. extraction power
  • Soft water cleaning
  • pH balanced cleaning solutions
  • Cleaning solutions only available to the trade
  • Fiber protectants
  • No-residue cleaning solutions
  • Trained and certified technicians
  • Experience from repeated stain removal services

When it comes to stains, it's all bad, but here are some of the culprits our technicians take on every day:

  • Blood
  • Ink and marker
  • Fruit punch
  • Popsicles
  • Grease
  • Oil
  • Toner
  • Red wine
  • Make-up
  • Paint
  • Pet urine

If a stain disaster occurs in your home, there are some immediate steps you can take to avoid serious carpet damage, but these are only "first aid". Take these immediate steps and then call A1 to give you professional results.

Wet spills - whatever the liquid begin to blot it up immediately. Use a clean cloth or anything absorbent, such as a disposable diaper. Blot the liquid first, THEN go after any staining.

Dry spills - if the spill is dry, loosen residue with the dull edge of a knife or spatula. Scrape and vacuum up as much of the residue as possible. Dampen a color resistant cloth with the proper cleaning agent for the type of stain. Blot the area gently to prevent the stain from spreading. Work from the outer edge of the spot toward the center. Turn the cloth frequently, so you are using a clean area. Repeat the process until the spot is completely removed or your cloth is not picking up any more of the stain. Be sure not to overwet the carpet! Rinse the spot with water and blot up any excess moisture. Rake up the carpet pile with your fingers and allow it to dry before walking on it.

Treatment of some common stains:

  • Pet urine - immediately pour a liberal amount of table salt onto the area. Let it soak up the urine and then sweep up the salt. Repeat this step until most of the urine has been removed. If there is still a stain, dampen the area with equal parts white vinegar and water. Blot dry.
  • Mustard stains - soak the stained area with a dilution of 1/2 ammonia and 1/2 water. Use a hairdryer to dry the area.
  • Red wine - use club soda to flush the wine from the carpet fibers. Blot dry.
  • Grease and oil marks - rub talcum powder, cornmeal or cornstarch gently into the stained area. Let it sit for awhile and then brush or sponge the substance away.
  • Blood stains - flush with cold water. Warm or hot water will set the stain. Blot dry.
  • Gum - Freeze the gum with ice and use the dull edge of a knife to remove it.
  • Latex paint - soak with dish detergent diluted with 20 parts of water. Agitate the area, blot, rinse and bot again.
  • Ball point ink - apply hair spray liberally to break up the stain. Rinse the area well with water. Blot dry.
  • Soft drink stain - apply a solution of one quart water with one teaspoon mild detergent and one teaspoon white vinegar. Blot dry.
