So what are a spot and a stain? Are they the same or are they different? There is a lot of difference between a spot and a stain. A spot is a soluble substance that can be easily removed by a normal cleaning process, while a stain is a substance that has dyed or altered a fabric or carpet fiber. It is very difficult to remove a stain that is lighter than the fabric or carpet fiber that has settled in overtime.
It is important that you take prompt action for the removal of the stains and spots, while using proper chemicals and following correct procedures. Always keep in mind to remove the spot before it becomes a stain. Immediate attention can allow you to maintain cleanliness for your fabric or carpet.
We recommend the following spot removal guidelines for your reference:
Start spot removal treatment as soon as possible.
Always test spotting fluid on carpet fiber.
Apply water before and after most spotting procedures except ink.
Use correct spotting fluid or chemicals.
Remember to test the fiber in an inconspicuous area first before using the spot removal
Following the manufacturer’s instructions carefully greatly helps.
