The Problem: While many carpets are treated to be stain resistant, no carpet is completely stain proof and not all spots are the same, nor are they treated the same. With spot removal, the first step is to absorb as much of the liquid as possible, as soon as possible. The next step is to identify the spot and find the right product and process to remove it. There are four basic categories of spots: water-soluble (the most common, including mud, ice cream, sugar, etc.); oil-based (including paint, oil, grease, ink, lipstick, etc.); non-soluble (including sand and grit which can be removed by vacuuming); and special treatment (spot requires a specific chemical change for removal, including rust, dye stains, red wine, etc.)
