I recently installed new Dupont, top of the line deep red
industrial type tight knit carpet in my living room.
The carpet has got some dark stains that I can't get out
using a wet-vac type carpet vacuum. I think the stains come from our
cocker spaniel perhaps sleeping in something here in the country and
it seeps into the carpet.. no idea what it is..
Can anyone help with the best way to get stains out of carpets..
what products or techniques work?
Thanks so much for any help in advance.
Someone gave me a can of this carpet & upholstery spot & stain remover,
called #1 Stainerator, made by Namco Mfg Inc. I am fairly impressed with how
well it works. Easily got out marker stains on the kids' BR floor, and
various unidentified stains. If you can get hold of some, try it out.
It may just be body oils from the dog????? My black dog leaves a dark haze
on all her bedding. My golden leaves body oil smudges on the drywall along
her favorite leaning walls - it comes right off with a soapy sponge (I use
Dawn - excellent for removing oils). For colored carpet like that, try a dry
solvent like Capture. The deep red color scares me - you'll find that Spot
Shot and similar products can indeed take the color out of your carpet. I
have noticed it even lightens a typical beige carpet with repeated use.
