Old Stain Removal from Area Rugs in Bellingham & Mount Vernon

Removing an old stain from your area rug that has been there for a long time is difficult. Many products such as red wines, grape juices, tomato juice, food condiments such as mustard, ketchup or spices like turmeric, paprika all have natural or synthetic dyes. The beauty of wool is that it accepts dyes vibrantly and evenly. Unfortunately, once the wool has accepted the wine spill or any product with dyes, it becomes part of a rug. Accepted is the key phrase here, so bring us your rug immediately before a spill becomes a stain. Cleaning a rug will not remove a dye stain, but we do have products that can mitigate a specific old stain and sometimes remove it completely.

Old spills such as clear sodas, beer, white wine, milk, and many other unsightly spots that appear to be rug stains are removed during our cold-water immersion rug washing process.

Without question, the old stains and ground-in stains are the hardest to remove from any fine textile. Fortunately, with more than 60 years of collective experience the Steam Sweepers Rug Cleaning crew has experience, wisdom, and knowledge to remove stains from area rugs, including the removal of old stains.

With almost three decades in the industry, our team at Steam Sweepers Rug Cleaning have handled all types of rug cleaning services through the years, and understand the best ways to remove the toughest stains, including those that have set in over time.
