Carpet Stain Removed

Many discolorations on carpet can be removed including spots from rust, food, beverages, blood, pet urine, etc. There are other options such as replacing a small area with a similar piece cut from a closet or scrap. A Bailtek Carpet Cleaning and Water Damage technician can help you understand your best option.  A Bailtek technician can also let you know if the carpet spots is a permanent carpet stain.

By simple cleaning industry definitions, a spot on carpet is something that can be removed and a carpet stain is something that can’t be removed.  One way of understanding this is red wine or Kool-Aid spilled on your kitchen table can be easily wiped clean, but the color stain will remain on the furniture.  A carpet spot is the same.
