Atlanta – Handling of Carpet Stains


Classic Commercial knows carpets, and we have been in the hospitality cleaning industry since 1973, providing services to some of the biggest names in the Atlanta area hospitality industry. We are called on for maintenance, or interim, cleaning of carpets, restoration cleaning when a carpet needs to be brought back to a high level of clean, and emergency cleaning when an emergency has taken place and the carpets need immediate attention.  Interim cleaning is the periodic cleaning that is recommended to keep carpets their cleanest.

Handling of Carpet Stains

When considering carpets stains in a large-scale hospitality facility, be it a hotel or restaurant, there are two types of stains that you should be concerned with. The first of these is the long-term stain. This is a stain that you can find in a high traffic area and comes from high use. You’ll see these types of stains in hallways leading from the outside and in high-traffic areas, such as in front of an ice machine. The second type of staining  is an incident stain, from someone spilling something or from an emergency, like a toilet overflowing.

Classic Commercial Services offers solutions to both of these types of stains that even come with extra benefits.

No wicking! Recurring spill stains are a thing of the past

We’ve all been there. You’ve been called in about a stain, and it looks like a large glass of red wine was spilled on a the carpet of a hotel room and discovered only when the guest has checked out and the room was being cleaned. The carpet cleaning team is called in and the spot removed, or so you think. Unfortunately the wine soaked into the pad and while the the carpet was cleaned, the pad remained untouched, holding the crimson liquid deep in the floor. The carpet itself gets cleaned and the spot where the wine was blends into the rest of the carpet until you can no longer recall exactly where the wine spill was. You think you have the stain handled and your attention is called elsewhere.

But then, the carpet dries, and as it does so, it wicks the wine from the deeper layers of the carpet. The dry fibers act as a sponge and bring the settled wine back up into the upper fibers, and you are left with the return of a stain! Fighting the stain like this is the carpet cleaning equivilent of tilting at windmills. But with Dry Encapsulation Carpet cleaning, this battle against recurring stains can be a thing of the past.
