If you think about the one thing that you use to clean, cook and drink you are most likely thinking about water. Water is a necessity for life to exist on the earth. It is needed for plants, animals and people and it even makes up over 70% of the earth’s surface. It may seem that water being so pure would never cause a spot or stain on carpet and upholstery but it can. A water stain needs to be treated if you notice it on your carpet or upholstery just like any other spill.
Mr Madison Carpet Cleaning & Upholstery Specialists Explain What Water Spotting is & the Best Way to Clean it
What Causes Water Spots on Carpet?: To understand about a water leaving a spot on the carpet and upholstery, you need to understand a little more about water. Water is made up of two elements, hydrogen and oxygen. They combine to form H2O and that translates into water. If all your water had was two pure elements, a spot would never happen; but that is just not the case. As the water that is collected travels through the earth it picks up debris. It is full of minerals and sediment that becomes part of the water. This is what your city or county has to work with. They will treat the water but all the extra additives will not be removed. They also tend to add more to the water that is distributed to you such as fluoride. With these additives in the water, the spill that might end up on your carpet can easily leave a noticeable spot. The moisture from the spill will dry out and the sediment stays behind. The spot looks like white lines that are usually around the outside of the original spill. It can be unsightly when left untreated so you need to know how to take care of it.
How to Remove Brown Water Stains On Carpet: You may think the best way to treat a water spot on your carpet is to use some type of mild acid such as vinegar. Although this will break down the minerals and sediments, it could potentially cause damage to your carpet or upholstery. Fortunately, there is a better process to deal with a water spot. You can use a spray bottle that is full of warm water. Spray the area and allow it to sit on the spot for about 30 seconds. After it is allowed to sit you need to do something to agitate the sediment. You can use your hands or a soft brush to move it around. After it is ready to remove you can use a wet/dry vac to pull up the water and the sediment. The spot should be gone.
