Winter Is Upon Us and in Quebec that Means Salt Stains!

Carpet cleaning to remove salt and calcium stains can be very difficult if not impossible without the right equipment and, most importantly, without the right cleaning products for this particular problem.

Popular advice says to use vinegar and water to clean carpet stains. On top of the time and energy it takes to do it yourself, the results can be disappointing. Vinegar and water will not necessarily clean deeply and can affect the look of your carpet, not to mention the lingering smell! The main challenge in cleaning your carpets yourself is successful removal because of lack of extraction force. By adding water and cleaning products, you’re really only diluting the calcium without removing it. So, in addition to calcium buildup, there will certainly be product residue in the carpet, which can reduce the lifespan of your carpet.

At Nettoyeur de la Cité, we have the experience and the solutions to effectively remove calcium deposits and salt stains from your carpet.

  1. Truck mounts
    Our most powerful equipment for deep steam cleaning. A jet of very hot steam combined with a powerful extraction force will effectively remove excess salt from your carpet. Because, no matter how hard you work at cleaning your own carpet, as long as the salt or the calcium is not removed, the problem remains!
  2. Cleaning products
    Some cleaning products can do much more than make a stain on your carpet or rug go away. They can make the color of your carpet fade! Did you know there are specialized products for calcium problems on carpets and rugs? EP88 Caprice, for example, neutralizes alkaline residue and effectively removes calcium deposits embedded in carpets.
  3. Prevention
    As the old adage goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
    Regular cleaning of carpets and rugs is the best way to prevent calcium buildup. The application of a teflon protector is also a good way to prevent salt from becoming embedded in the fibers, which can cause irreversible damage to your carpets and rugs.
