The Answer To Why Some Carpet Stains Keep Coming Back

If you’ve ever expended the time, resources, and effort to clean your carpets yourself only to experience carpet stains and odors returning shortly after, you know how frustrating this can be. 

Professional carpet cleaning in Rochester, Michigan is the lasting solution to help ensure stubborn stains and unpleasant smells stay away for good! 

Wondering why? Here are a few common sources of recurring carpet stains and odors, plus how to eliminate them with help from Chem-Dry. 

What Keeps Carpet Stains And Odors From Going Away? 

  • Resoiling from leftover residue. If a stain seems to keep coming back, it may actually be a new one depositing on an area where sticky residue was left behind. Most do-it-yourself methods and professional steam cleaners use soapy detergents to clean carpets. And if that residue isn’t rinsed and extracted fully, it leaves behind a film that attracts dirt and other stains. 

These methods can actually leave carpet more vulnerable to stains than before. But the good news is, Chem-Dry can help with a better approach to carpet cleaning. Our hot carbonating extraction method uses a non-toxic, green-certified solution that won’t deposit residue on your carpet fibers.

  • Wicking from excess moisture. When too much water is used in the carpet cleaning process, stains can penetrate deep beneath the surface and get trapped in the backing and padding beneath—especially when steam cleaners are used that aren’t powerful enough to extract all the moisture. When the carpets begin to dry, the stain may wick or travel up the carpet fibers until it reappears.

That’s why Chem-Dry uses 80% less moisture compared to other methods. We let carbonation do the work instead of unnecessary moisture, then extract it away using the most powerful equipment. 

  • Odors from pets. Most recurrent carpet odors come from pet urine. The reason for this is because when pet urine dries, it often leaves potent odor crystals trapped beneath the surface. Carpet cleaning may remove stains, but these odor pockets remain. 

Chem-Dry Pet Urine Removal Treatment breaks down and removes even the toughest odor-causing crystals for a deep, fresh clean.
