A lot of people invest hours into cleaning their carpets and furniture only to see stains and odors—that they thought were removed—return after a few days. This can be extremely frustrating and disheartening.
However, we have good news! There are actually three main reasons why stains and odors come back. And we have a proven solution to get rid of them for good!
Reason #1 – Resoiling From Leftover Cleaning Residue
When a stain comes back, it often isn’t because an old one reappears. Rather, a new one developed on the sticky or soapy residue that was left behind after cleaning.
Cleaning machines you can rent, as well as professional steam cleaners, rely on an excess amount of soapy detergent. This can strongly attract dirt and stains if not rinsed properly. However, excessive rinsing can also lead to extended dry times and a risk of mold or mildew growth. Basically, you’re left with carpet and upholstery that are more vulnerable to stains than before.
But don’t worry— Malama ‘Aina Chem-Dry has a solution! Our Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning harnesses the power of millions of tiny carbonated bubbles. This process powerfully, but gently, lifts stains to the surface and uses 80% less moisture than steam cleaners. Plus, our green-certified, non-toxic cleaning solution blasts away any soapy residue and won’t leave any behind.
Reason #2 – Wicking From Excess Moisture
Stains easily penetrate deep into carpet fibers and can even reach the padding beneath. The same happens with stains seeping into upholstery fibers. Steam cleaners and at-home cleaning methods require excess water but then aren’t powerful enough to extract all the moisture after cleaning. Because of this, much of the stain can remain trapped in the carpet backing and upholstery.
As carpet and upholstery fibers dry, it causes the stain to wick or travel up the strands and “reappear” as time goes on.
To avoid this problem, it’s important to choose a carpet and upholstery cleaning method that uses less water—like Chem-Dry’s Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning technology. Did we mention that our method is also non-toxic and safe for your family and pets?
Reason #3 – Tough Pet Stains And Odors
The most common cause of recurring odors in carpet and upholstery is….. pets.
Pets actually tend to relieve themselves in the same areas over and over. As mentioned before, urine penetrates deep into carpet and upholstery fibers and even into additional layers and flooring beneath. As urine dries, potent, odor-packed crystals are left behind and continue to release odors unless treated by professional pet urine removal.
