Carpet Stain & Carpet Colour Beeeding
One of the most common culprits causing stains is your pet. Pet stain removal from rugs can take all the skills of the stain removal expert. Pet stain removal at The Rug Guru uses the time-tested methods of cleaning the rugs by hand to ensure optimum cleaning. Special decontaminates and deodorises, that will not harm the rugs, are used to ensure the best result. The longer the stain material remains in the carpet, the higher the chance of permanent colour change, even if all the original stain material is removed. Immediately blotting (not rubbing) the stain as soon as possible will help reduce the chances of permanent colour change. Artificial food colouring stains are generally considered permanent stains including liquids such as Gatorade, Listerine, soft drinks, etc. We are however generally able to remove this type of staining.
Most stains are removed by dissolving them with a solvent. The solvent to use depends on two factors: the agent that is causing the stain, and the material that has been stained. Different solvents will dissolve different stains, and the application of some solvents is limited by the fact that they not only dissolve the stain, but also dissolve the material that is stained as well.
Stain removal is one of the services we provide in our carpet cleaning facility. Over the decades, we have successfully removed tens of thousands of carpet stains, ranging from the most common types such as pet stains and wine stains to the least common that could be almost any stain. We consider many factors to correctly identify and implement the best stain removal process. For each stain, we make our own special stain removal product. This has made us the most successful Auckland rug cleaner in the carpet industry and amongst the very best in New Zealand.
Colour run or colour bleeding is one of the problems you may encounter after your rug has been cleaned by someone without proper knowledge in this field or if an area of your rug becomes wet for any reason.
If the dyes used when making a rug are not properly stabilized during the dying process, or excessive dyes remains on the surface of the fibres used in making the rug, that rug will be vulnerable to colour bleeding should it become wet. Colour bleeding may cause significant damage to the appearance of the rug. Therefore, it is important to consider two significant factors: first, how to prevent colour bleeding; and second, how to successfully restore a colour run damaged area of a rug. The knowledge about the materials used in making of hand knotted carpets (wool, silk, bamboo silk, cotton etc.) along with the knowledge about the types of dyes used (acidic, alkaline, vegetable, synthetic or Mineral dyes) are essential in successful cleaning of a rug without causing any damage from colour bleeding.
At The Rug Guru we excel in colour run removal. We have restored thousands of colour run damaged carpets and are pleased to continue to offer this service to our clients.
