Carpet stains and other types of discolorations can cause property owners a great deal of frustration. One minute, they have a spotless stretch of pristine carpet flooring, and the next minute, they have a tarnished floor covering that looks absolutely unsightly.

Carpet Discoloration Types:

Dark Spots

Dark spots usually occur when spilled liquids like dried fruit juice or certain types of oil cause dirt particles to cling onto the surface fibers of the carpet. They get worse over time, as foot traffic increases the amount of impurities that get stuck on the carpet. Thankfully, most dark spots are easily removed during the carpet cleaning process. Spot removers, cleaning solutions, and the hot water extraction procedure work together to dismantle contaminants that cause the discoloration.


Conversely, stains happen when colored liquids like coffee, red wine, food sauce, blood, ink, and motor oil get spilled on the carpet. The liquid infiltrates the carpet fibers and imbues it with its color. Carpet stains are more difficult to eliminate, and the removal process will depend on the kind of liquid that was spilled, as well as the type of carpet flooring you have.

If colored liquid was spilled onto your carpet, remove as much of it as quickly as possible by using a wet vacuum cleaner and then blotting the liquid with a washcloth or with paper towels. Never rub the liquid because the stain could spread. If you aren’t sure about what to do, or if you are worried that you might make the stain worse, call us immediately at 314-227-3938.
