get rid of reappearing carpet and upholstery stains

Have you ever had a stain on your carpet or upholstery that always seems to reappear no matter how many times you’ve cleaned it? If so, you know how frustrating this can be.

The good news is, we know just what to do when dealing with stubborn, reappearing stains. Consider these three reasons why stains keep coming back as well as these carpet and upholstery cleaning solutions.


#1 – Resoiling from sticky residue left behind.

Oftentimes, stain cleaning solutions leave behind sticky residues that attract dirt and grime. While you may think that a stain on your carpet or upholstery is the same stain reappearing, it might be a new stain caused by the sticky residues left behind. 

When cleaning your carpet or upholstery, avoid DIY methods that use excessive amounts of soapy detergent. Steam cleaning machines are often guilty of forcing too much soap into your carpet and not extracting all of it. If you are cleaning an area by hand with a stain remover or other soapy solution, be sure to rinse the area thoroughly so no soap remains. This will help reduce the chances of a sticky, dirt-attracting residue being left behind. 

If you want to avoid the risk of sticky residues altogether, consider scheduling a Chem-Dry carpet or upholstery cleaning. Our Hot Carbonating Extraction process uses carbonation to lift stains to the surfaces and our non-toxic cleaning solution doesn’t leave behind any dirt-attracting residues. 


#2 – Wicking from too much moisture. 

Stains can sometimes seep down deep below the surface of your carpet or upholstery to the padding or backing beneath. When too much water is used, excess moisture gets trapped below the surface.

As carpet and upholstery begin to dry, they’ll continue absorbing the moisture from below. This causes the stain to travel or “wick” up the fibers and reappear.  

Fortunately, Ace Chem-Dry has developed a low-moisture cleaning method for carpets and upholstery. In fact, we use 80% less water than other carpet cleaners in the area which means less risk of moisture being left behind to cause wicking issues.  


#3 – Recurring odors from pets. 

Pet stains can be especially frustrating to deal with. Even if you thoroughly clean the area, odor-causing particles may be left behind. 

Pets tend to urinate in the same spot on your carpet and upholstery. Over time, the moisture penetrates deep into the backing or padding beneath. As the moisture dries, potent odor crystals are left behind and become stronger over time. 

These concentrated odor crystals can’t be removed with normal DIY cleaning methods. That’s why we offer a Pet Urine Removal Treatment. Our PURT treatment is specially formulated to break down odor-causing crystals using a natural chemical reaction. From there, the odor-causing crystals are brought to the surface where they can be removed for good. Plus, PURT removes 99.9% of odors and 99.2% of bacteria from pet urine.
