Improper Cleaning Can Brown Your Carpeting And Upholstery
Carpet brownout is a condition in which your rug develops brownish stains, usually in response to an improper cleaning method. Highly alkaline substances and chemicals can cause brown spots on your carpet and rugs. Using baking soda to neutralize odors is a common cause of brownout. Save your carpets and have them cleaned regularly with steam cleaning and your carpets, rugs, and upholstery will look great, smell good, and be clean and sanitized. Browning can occur if you have had water leak into your home from heavy rains or if an inexperienced carpet cleaner cleaned wool, linen, or cotton and used too much water or did not use a proper pH rinsing agent. DFW Steam Cleaning cleans every natural fiber properly ensuring there is no brownout. If you have had brownout, it can usually be reversed.
Natural Fibers Don't Like Alkaline
Natural fibers like wool, linen, and cotton do not like the alkaline side of the pH scale. Natural fibers prefer the acidic side of the pH scale. Acidic pH is used to steam clean most natural fibers to keep them from turning brown. For example, if you have linen outdoor furniture that gets rained on the linen will actually turn brown from the Rainwater.
Natural Fiber pH Reversal
DFW steam cleaning can actually reverse the pH of browned doubt Fabrics. By using the appropriate pH detergents and rinses we do not cause Browning when our professional technicians clean your wool carpeting or other natural fiber or natural/synthetic blended furniture. In addition, we can reverse Browning that has been caused by previously improper cleaning techniques. Another example of browning is water damaged or flood-damaged wool rugs. The rugs will get a brownish yellowish tinge on them which needs to be treated.
