Here are a few things you can do to prevent color loss in your carpet.
- KEEP OUT THE SUN! – We all love bright, sunny rooms. But the same sun beams the make us feel so good also have the ability to strip color from carpet. So when you’re not in a room, be sure to pull the shades to block out these damaging UV rays.
- KEEP HANDS & FEET CLEAN! – You may not realize it, but the chemicals and products you handle regularly can inadvertently cause color loss in your carpet. Bleach, acne medication and facial cream, and even athlete’s foot medication can strip the colour from your carpet. So make sure to wash your hands regularly and wear socks whenever possible.
- TREAT PET STAINS IMMEDIATELY! – We love our pets, but the do have accidents at times. If this happens, clean it up as quickly as possible. Pet urine is potent stuff and has the ability to remove color from carpet and fabrics.
- CALL CARPET CLEANING Experts®! – Many colour loss areas on carpet are due to the improper use of consumer carpet spotting products. Unfortunately, these products are designed for ‘instant gratification’. But they can also chemically burn or destroy carpet fibers in the process of removing a spot. They also have the tendency to chemically set spots, turning them into permanent stains.
So when faces with tricky spots and stains, you’re much better off to call the Experts® at Phil’s team. We have the expertise and spot treating products to save your carpet and help it keep its colour!
