A large choice of stain removal products are available to us all, but do they work? Well in fact there is no such thing as an ‘all round stain remover’. Every stain is different and should be treated so. The consequences of using the wrong stain remover on the wrong stain can prove disastrous. That is why at RCS Cyprus we take the time and the care to test stains before we clean them, ensuring we choose the correct product for that particular stain. Does the stain need an acid spot stain remover or alkaline? Don’t worry our trained technicians will have the answer. At RCS Cyprus we use a comprehensive range of stain removal products, supplied to us by leading manufactures around the world. We have a stain remover for every occasion. Give us a call, we can help!
Carpet and upholstery stain removal should only be carried out by trained and experienced technicians, who understand the chemistry involved in dealing with the many varied types of water-based or oil-based stains. In many instances, the technician will not be dealing with a stain at all, but rather a dye contained within the product that was spilt. Take coffee for example – a common spillage in homes. Coffee contains a natural tanning agent which can permanently dye the carpet if not dealt with correctly. Red wine is another example. In these cases, we will be attempting to “reduce” the appearance of the stain, rather than “remove” it.
Please don’t pour white wine on a red wine stain – it’s just a waste of white wine! Far better to make up a solution of water and white vinegar.If you must attempt carpet or upholstery stain removal, use cold water sparingly and always blot the stain from the outside in – and never scrub it – you will spread the stain and distort the pile. RCS Cyprus are experts at carpet and upholstery stain removal and regularly deal with accidents caused by kids, pets and even husbands! We regularly deal with pet urine stains, make up, blood, vomit, oil and shoe polish. All these stains require different removal techniques and in some cases more than one application. All the more reason not to attempt DIY carpet or upholstery stain removal.
