Discover the Prochem range of carpet stain treatment solutions to help you tackle tough stains
Throughout your professional carpet cleaning career, you’ll come across a wide range of stains on carpets & rugs you work on. Within your carpet cleaning kit, it is a good idea to carry stain treatments for at least the most common stains found on carpets such as tea, coffee, red wine, ink, food & blood.
Prochem Stain Treatments
Prochem cleaning products include a range of carpet stain treatments to help you tackle a huge range of stains. Below, we’ve listed common stains you may come across, along with the Prochem stain treatment chemical which you should use to remove the stain.
Although Prochem chemicals are extremely effective, not all stains can be removed. Very old, set-in stains may require more than one application & it may not be possible to completely remove the stain. The sooner a stain can be treated the better the final result will be.
Carpet stain removal tips
- Before using any chemical, always pre-test in an inconspicuous area before the full application – Check for adverse colour or texture change.
- Remove as much of the soiling as possible before you begin the treatment – Remove solid matter using a blunt knife or spatula. Blot spills & liquid stains with a clean white towel, applying firm pressure, to absorb as much of the liquid stain as possible before proceeding.
- Always blot, never brush or rub the stain which can cause the stain to become more ingrained in the carpet fibres.
- Do not over-wet the carpet with solvent stain treatments. Blot the area frequently during the treatment.
- Work from the outside of the stain towards the centre to prevent ring marks.
- Complete the stain removal treatment with Fibre & Fabric Rinse.
