Chances are that your clients will have a vari­ety of spots and stains on their car­pets rang­ing from food, drinks, urine, and oth­er sub­stances. The faster the spots and stains are addressed, the bet­ter the chances of removal. 

Any clean­ing com­pa­ny can offer spot and stain removal with invest­ment into equip­ment and train­ing. If spots or stains are not addressed quick­ly, they can cause per­ma­nent dam­age such as dis­coloura­tion, blotchy areas, or sim­ply take away from the over­all appear­ance.

Reg­u­lar car­pet clean­ing and main­te­nance along with car­pet spot­ting can assist in the lifes­pan of the car­pets. Thus sav­ing the home­own­ers mon­ey and pre­vent­ing them from replac­ing car­pets before they are worn out.

It is impor­tant to edu­cate your clients about dif­fer­ent clean­ing agents used for car­pet spot­ting. If your clients try to fix the stain or spot them­selves, they may make it worse. Some sub­stances will remove the colour from the car­pet as well as the stain.

You will need to learn how to iden­ti­fy stains and spots as this will deter­mine the type of clean­ing agent required. Oil and grease will need to be emul­si­fied for removal.

It is impor­tant that you do not over wet the car­pet as this can cause the stain to spread. A white tow­el should be used to blot the stain as using a coloured tow­el can trans­fer the cloth dyes to the car­pet. Make sure you do not rub or scrub the stain as this can make the stain larg­er and dam­age the car­pet fibers.

Spot and stain removal starts with iden­ti­fy­ing what has caused the stain. Once the stain is iden­ti­fied, the cor­rect clean­ing agent can be select­ed. It is impor­tant to fol­low the instruc­tions on the chem­i­cal bot­tle or Safe­ty Data Sheet (SDS). This will detail spe­cif­ic steps required for the chem­i­cal to work best includ­ing dwell time and any pre­cau­tions that may be required.

You will need a pro­fes­sion­al car­pet spot­ting kit that will con­tain chem­i­cals and tools required to remove spots and stains. Some will be eas­i­ly removed where­as oth­ers may be dif­fi­cult to iden­ti­fy and remove.

Train­ing should be under­tak­en to ensure you are aware of the risks along with how to com­plete stain removal cor­rect­ly and effec­tive­ly. CARSI will be pro­vid­ing a face to face, hands-on train­ing expe­ri­ence in Boon­dall, QLD on the 8th of July 2021. 

This train­ing day will pro­vide atten­dees with the knowl­edge to under­take car­pet stain and spot removal effec­tive­ly. Stain and spot removal can be quite risky to under­take if you do not under­stand what is required. You could end up mak­ing the stain worse or dam­ag­ing the car­pet.

All atten­dees will receive a cer­tifi­cate of com­ple­tion after tak­ing a short mul­ti­ple choice quiz. They will also receive a FREE spot­ter bot­tle.

CARSI pro­vides many online cours­es that cov­er the car­pet clean­ing basics, mould reme­di­a­tion, safe­ty data sheets, and more. Check out our range of cours­es to expand your knowl­edge and help us raise the bar in the indus­try.
