Have you ever hesitated to purchase a light colored carpet for your home because you can’t guarantee it will remain free of stains? If your family is like many others, spills on the carpet are a fact of life. In some cases, completely removing the stain is simple. In others, the stain merely fades slightly, or reappears as strong as ever. This is because your chosen cleaning product just touched the surface. If you really want to get to the root of the problem and remove that stain forever, you need to use oxygen technology.
What is oxygen technology? Oxygen technology is using oxygen powered cleaning products to bubble up and penetrate the stain, completely removing it from your carpet. When you use an oxygen concentrate product, the dirt oxidizes and breaks down to remove stains and odors. Not only are stains and odors removed from the surface, but deep down in the carpet as well, guaranteeing the stain won’t magically reappear a few days later.
Sure, you can try expensive household cleaners, but they don’t get to the root of the problem. Not only does a concentrated oxygen cleaning product clean and deodorize, it saves money. Because it’s concentrated, you use less. Since you remove the stain with the first application, you don’t have to keep re-applying. A concentrated, oxygen cleaner is effective, it’s economical and it’s much better for the environment than nationally advertised carpet cleaners.
There are a few things to keep in mind when cleaning carpet stains. The first is to act immediately. The longer the stain sits, the more time the stain has to penetrate. Once you start cleaning the stain, it’s important to only blot the stain. By rubbing you’re not only encouraging the stain to spread further, but you’re also weakening the fibers of the carpet. It’s also important to remember to clean the stain by blotting from the outside of the stain to the center. This prevents the stain from spreading. Lastly, it’s important not to apply any sort of heat to a stain. Heat will make the stain a more permanent part of the décor.
Using a product containing oxygen technology, such as the Eco-Cln family of products couldn’t be easier. Simply spray Eco-Cln Citrus Concentrate on the affected area to remove odors or stains. Let it sit for about 5 minutes, giving it time to penetrate. When time is up, blot the area using a clean, white, absorbent cloth. Continue blotting until the area is dry. If the spot on your carpet is the result of a pet stain, consider using PAWS (Pet Accident Washup System) for deep cleaning and odor removal. Since PAWS is part of the Eco-Cln family of products, you can be assured of the same fast and effective results.
By following these tips, and using concentrated oxygen cleaning technology for stain removal, you’re guaranteed a carpet that will not only look and smell as good as new, you’re ensuring it will last for a long time to come.
