Stain removal

Fluids

Immediately absorb the spilled fluid with a towel or paper. Do not twist the material used for absorption, push it with your full weight instead, and when it impregnates, replace it again. Repeat this process until the tucker does not become wet anymore. If you remove all moisture, then 95% of the stain can be removed without chemicals, and the removal of the residuary becomes easy. Already dried stains are hard, or even impossible to remove. Never scrub or scour the stain, the stain area!

If a bigger amount of fluid spilled out onto the carpet, mop up the most of the fluid with wet vacuum cleaner. Then the above described tucking process shall be started.

If the wet carpet is not let to completely dry, although it looks like cleaner at first glance, it will result up in getting a spectacular contamination soon (applied detergents attract contaminations and the wet carpets work similar to a duster: it removes and absorbs dirt from the shoes.) If sand gets into the wet carpet, abrasion significantly speeds up.

  4. Proper performance of warm-water cleaning means that pinned carpets are well-cleaned, and its optical appearance, comfort significantly improves.

Comment *It is very important to let carpets enough time to dry (min. 12-24 hours), before using them again. This period depends on the fiber thickness, fiber type, density, temperature etc.
