Can You Get Out?

Brady's can remove any spot that is not a permanent stain, however, there are conditions in which permanent staining is present. The following is a list of conditions which may or may not be removable. The percentage listed next to the condition is the percentage of CHANCE that we have of removing it NOT the percentage of stain that will be removed.

Yellowing (50%) Yellowing can be as simple as neutralizing the spot or area by spraying a solution on it, or it can be impossible to remove. There are many unknown causes for yellowing. It is so common, that we have 5 different products on our trucks just for yellowing.

Filtration soiling (black lines around baseboard) (75%) We can usually get some of the filtration soiling out, but it almost never comes all the way out. Filtration soiling is when carpet “filters” soil going through cracks and crevices. The particles are so fine, and it goes all the way down the sides of the yarn and through the backing which makes it almost impossible to remove.

Urine (50%)
When urine is fresh and has not been cleaned by an alkaline spotter, the chances are good. If the urine has been there a long time, the chances are slim. However, urine will continue to deteriorate the carpet, so it is extremely important to remove the urine deposits even if the spot does not come out. Every day we remove urine spots and every day we find urine spots that will not come out, so it's unpredictable. Very important to know however, is that we have a 4 step urine treatment procedure that is included in our specialty spotting: When cleaning a urine spot, we first apply a urine pre-treatment that helps to break down the urine and neutralize it. The spot is then thoroughly extracted. If spot is still there, we use other specialty spotters to attempt removal. The final step whether the spot comes out or not, is to spray an enzyme on it that will continue to break it down and help with the odor if any.

Urine odor
We have 2 odor treatment processes in addition to our urine spotting.

Vomit (50%)
Same as urine (If red from cat food, see red dye removal)

Blood (75%) If blood has not been cleaned, if hot water or alkaline cleaning products have not been used, chances are good, but not guarantee.

Rust (85%) Chances for rust removal are excellent, however never a guarantee

Red dye

(crayon, make-up, Kool-Aid, cat food, throw-up, fiberglass insulation) (05%)
Red dye is almost impossible to remove unless conditions are exactly right. If the carpet is new, chances are better. In many cases the only way to remove red dye is with a heat transfer process in which we apply a product to the spot, lay over a wet cloth and apply an iron to it to cause the spot to transfer into the white towel. The spot is then rinsed thoroughly. This is a last resort procedure and may remove some of the carpet dye as well. Very low chance of red dye removal in most cases.

Lipstick (50%) Chances are good that we will be able to remove it with solvents, however some lipstick may be in the red dye category which gives it slim chances for removal.

Furniture stain (01%) Almost impossible.

Coke (95%) Usually not a problem.

(70%) Tannin spots can sometimes cause a permanent stain, but we usually have fair success.

Coffee (70%) Same as tea, however coffee many times is spilled when very hot which can make it more difficult.

Ketchup (50%) Ketchup can go either way. Sometimes it comes out easily, other times it enters into the red dye category.

Mustard (15%) Can be very difficult at times. Not always impossible, but many times it is impossible.

Paint (enamel) (20%) Although we have removed a lot of enamel paint, there has also been a lot that we have not. Case by case basis, no guarantee.

Paint (latex) (75%) – Usually good results, however colored latex can permanently stain carpet, and hardened latex can be impossible.

Crayon (50%) We carry excellent solvents, but can go either way.

Water rings (70%) We carry special products for water rings, and have good success overall, but still sometimes doesn't come out.

Indentions from heavy furniture

No guarantee can be made on removing indentions from furniture. In addition to the pile of the carpet being crushed, the backing of the carpet is indented. Heat and moisture and hand grooming with our equipment will help tremendously, but it may take time to completely release back to normal IF it comes back all the way. Server cases do not come back 100%.

What about reoccurring spots?
If the spot returned within a day or so after the cleaning, then it was either not removed and wicked back, or it was not removed but appeared that it was removed. If the spot returned after a week, two weeks, or a month or so, it probably either has some residue form cleaning agents left behind, or the spot was oily or sticky and was not totally removed therefore collection soil in that same area again.

My carpet has bleached or faded spots, can you correct that?
If there is color loss in the carpet, we can do a carpet repair for you by replacing that area of carpet with another piece from a closet. It may be able to be spot dyed.
