When spots reappear…

Author: Jeff Maietta

Spots have a tendency to re appear after the “old” method of wet saturation cleaning; aka steam cleaning.  This is called the wick-back effect and occurs as the water enters and saturates the carpet, soaks the stain into the padding, and as it dries out over the course of  a week the stain lifts back out of the padding and into the carpet….

Wick back from a customer that just had their carpet steam cleaned…

    You can’t go wrong with baking soda and vngaier!I make a paste with baking soda and use it and a scrubby sponge to clean the sink and tub- does wonders with soap scum.Vinegar and water 1:1 ratio in a spray bottle works as an all-purpose cleaner and as a window cleaner too.There’s a ton of resources online that are project-specific. Pretty soon you won’t know why you ever needed all those chemicals
