Why Do Carpet Stains Reappear After I’ve Removed Them?

There are three main reasons why carpet stains come back

  1. The stain was never completely removed in the first place.
  2. Soap was left behind in the steam cleaning process. This sticky residue collects even more dirt after the initial cleaning.
  3. Dirt and stains were forced below the surface of the carpet by a high-pressure steam cleaning machine then “wicked” back upward as the carpet dried. Wicking is when soil trapped in carpet padding or subflooring moves to the tips of carpet fibers as it dries after cleaning. If you see dirt “wicking” to the surface of your carpet, that’s an indicator that the stain is still present below.

How Can I Get Rid of Carpet Stains For Good?

With the help of the professional team at Southside Chem-Dry, no stain has to be permanent. Chem-Dry has developed a revolutionary approach to carpet cleaning that helps prevent wicking. Instead of using large amounts of soap and water with high pressure machines, we use the natural Power of Carbonation to lift stains to the surface of your carpet where they can be completely removed.

Similar to the way club soda removes stains from clothes, our natural solution uses millions of tiny carbonated bubbles to penetrate deep below your carpet, break down stains, and gently lift them to the fiber’s surface for cleaning.

Since these carbonated bubbles handle so much of the work, we don’t need to use harsh equipment and soapy solutions like some steam cleaners do. Our cleaner contains no soaps or detergents. This drastically decreases the likelihood of repeat stains. Also, our process is safe for your family and the environment, too! We use ⅕ the amount of water as some of our competitors, meaning your carpets will dry in just 1-2 hours with limited risk of mold and mildew growth!
