If these stains are from a prior occupant most likely the kitchen sink & all has probably been sprayed and rubbed on it. The rule of thumb on spots & stains that originate from a body (human or animal) should be treated with an alkaline solution usually ammoniated. These products are called protein solutions or maybe blood out etc. But don't confuse color damage with spots. If the original color is gone you need a dye kit.

A good thing for filtration is a knife.  Restretch the carpet usually about an inch is enough. Scrubbing along the walls is a pain and usuallu the carpet is kind of fragile there.  I have tried many cleaners some work some are a complete waste of time.  If you time is worth nothing work at the lines.Guitar

Mr. Steamer:  I think $110. is not a resonable rate per room.  But if he gets it more power to him.  Unless things have change from when I used to do inspections in the GTA  the repair and reinstallation man is the one who should be busy, because I never inspected too much work installers had done.  Just work by some carpet layers??????????????Guitar

We sell a product from Esteam especially for filtration lines. It's called Olefin Prespray. We also sell a product called Yukon Gold. Basically filtration marks are caused by trapped oil hydrocarbons. The product needed is usually high is solvency. But mechanical action is usually needed. It's a lot of work and should be an extra charge.

The claw is good for litfing anything that has penetrated deep. Although Ink and Kook Aid usually require dye and mild bleaches.

P.S.
Steamer, Have you tried soap & water?

Ted:  I have had absolutly no results using olefin prespray on filtration lines.  As a matter of fact I personally think olefin prespray is a waste of money for any cleaning of carpets.  Soap and water probably works better.  But that is just my experience.Guitar

hey guys I install carpet professionaly.  The correct way to charge for a restrech is by the number of yards you  are restreching.  if the room is 12x12 then charge them for 16 yards at whatever rate you want I get 4.50 a yard.   Or somtimes if its a good customer I'll do it for say 30-50 bucks.  Damm  I cant wait to start my cleaning business!

Filter Out from Prochem ...... First explain how filtration lines occur to the
customer and charge extra for your time. Many will opt to not spend the
extra.


" To explain in advance is to educate, to explain after is to make excuses"

Filter Out also works on Graphite filings under the Rocking/recliners

As far as Pet urine......OSR from Pro's Choice has worked flawless for us.
Up to this past year I was unable to find anything that was all that great.

OSR and the water Claw work excellent.

The water claw is only a tool, but it gives you the opportunity to saturate
a given area allow the chemical to dwell and do it's thing and be able to
draw moisture through deeper layers , many times all the way down to
the subsurface. concrete or wood or whatever.
