Cleaning stains from a carpet is never easy, but there are some substances that can make a carpet cleaning job much worse than you wanted it to be. Apart from some of the most famous examples of hard to get out substances like ink or gum, oil is another very hard substance to remove with carpet cleaning. Holiday residents might be suggesting to themselves that they would never let motor oil into their home to stain their carpet, but there is oil in many more foods and products then you might think. Oil is very easy to transfer from your shoes or shirt to other areas of your home without you ever knowing.
Many individuals love to spend their weekend in their garage working on cars and other related automotive tasks. Regardless if it is a new car part or an existing one you are replacing, it is going to come with some degree of oil. It is very easy to transfer these oils onto your hand or shoes and track them in your home, prompting you to need carpet cleaning. Holiday residents might have a hard time removing oil from their carpet because oil is known for not being water-soluble. This is why when it rains on the road, the oil rises to the top of the water puddles.
If it is not car oil that is a problem for your carpet flooring, it is more than likely going to be cooking oil that prompts you for carpet cleaning. Holiday residents who do not eat food at their dinner table and walk around or eat on the couch have a strong chance of dripping food oil on their carpet. Oil from a fryer and other cooking oils such as vegetable oil or canola oil are the most common culprits for food related oil stains on people’s carpet.
