You wouldn’t believe how many households I go into that don’t have a reliable spot remover in their cleaning cabinet. I also come across quite a few cases where the absolutely wrong thing is used to lift simple spots that result in utter heartbreak.
TRUE STORY! Several years ago I visited a new client to clean her carpet. Upon my initial inspection, I noticed about 3 dozen bleached out spots throughout her suite. I asked her if she had been using bleach. She emphatically exclaimed “No! Not bleach! I use Javex!” Well, you can see what I mean.
So, over the past 12 years that SmithWerks Carpet Cleaning West Vancouver has been servicing the North Shore, I have been asked many times what I would recommend a home owner should have on hand to deal with the occasional spill or spot on their carpet or upholstery. We highly recommend Folex Instant Carpet Spot Remover.
Folex Fact Sheet (from their website)
Chemically: FOLEX is a Water Based Non-Ionic Surfactant
WATER BASED means that it uses water to wash the stain away, for safety, and virtually residue free cleaning. Unlike some soap, solvent, or oil based cleaners that could be smelly, toxic, flammable, leave a sticky residue, or damage the carpet backing.
NON-IONIC means that it does not have a positive (+) or a negative (-) charge… therefore it will not attract or repel dust and dirt, so that the cleaned area will soil uniformly with the surrounding area. The spot will not reappear!
SURFACTANT means that it is an emulsifying agent that reduces surface tension… So it breaks up the stain, and surrounds it, so that it can be removed by blotting with a dry cloth or paper towel.
