Percentage Removal Guide

Percentage Removal Guide

It’s possible to remove a spot that is not a permanent stain. There are conditions where permanent staining is present. The following is a list of conditions, which may or may not allow spots to be removed. 

What Do The Numbers Mean?

The percentage listed above the condition is the percentage of CHANCE you have of removing the spot or stain,  NOT the percentage of spot or stain that will be removed!

Final Thoughts

Because of the chance a spot may not be able to be removed, Fiber Pro Carpet Cleaning will not assume responsibility for any damage that may occur during do it yourself clean up. Spot clean at your own risk.

*Read our Disclaimer before attempting any spot removal. Before attempting any spot removal process always pre-test ALL solutions to be used in an inconspicuous area, to ensure that the solution will not damage the carpet or its dyes. Proceed with caution.

%

Yellowing

Yellowing can be as simple as neutralizing the spot or area by spraying a solution on it, or it can be impossible to remove. There are many unknown causes for yellowing. It is so common that we have several different products on our van just for yellowing.

%

Filtration Soiling

Filtration soiling is the black marks you see around the edges of your baseboards. Typically we can get these lines to lighten, but seldom do they come all the way out. The particles in filtration soil are so fine, and go all the way down the sides of the yarn and through the backing of the carpet. This makes it very difficult to remove.

%

Urine

When urine is fresh and has not been cleaned using an alkaline spotter, the chances are good. If the urine has been there for a long time, the chances are slim. However, urine will continue to deteriorate the carpet, so it is extremely important to remove the urine deposits, even if the spot does not come out.

%

Vomit

Same as urine. (If red dye is present in dog or cat food, see red dye removal).

%

Blood

If no hot water or alkaline cleaning products have been used, chances are good.

%

Rust

Chances for rust removal are excellent.

%

Lipstick

Chances are good that we will be able to remove it with solvents. However, some lipstick may be in the red dye category, which gives it a slim chance for removal.

%

Red dye

Red dye is almost impossible to remove unless conditions are exactly right. If the carpet is new, the chances are better. In many cases the only way to remove red dye is with a heat transfer process in which we apply a product to the spot, lay a wet cloth over it, and apply an iron to cause the spot to transfer to the towel. The spot is then rinsed thoroughly. This is a special procedure and due to the extra time it requires, we do charge extra for this.

%

Soft drinks

Usually not a problem.

%

Furniture Stain

Almost impossible.

%

Tea & Coffee

Tannin spots sometimes cause a permanent stain. Many times when coffee or tea is spilled, it is very hot. This can cause a stain to be set into the carpet.

%

Ketchup

If ketchup has red dye in it, it could leave a stain. But without red dye, it’s not a problem.

%

Mustard

Mustard can be very difficult to remove.

%

Paint

If it is a fresh spill the chances are much better. If it has already dried, chances are slim
