This homeowner in Lutz FL had chair protectors on the floor in their home office. When they removed them to convert the office into a bedroom these geometric soil marks were left behind. This type of old carpet stain can be very difficult to remove. The longer soil sits on carpet the more likely it will set into the carpet fibers and can leave a permanent stain.
The best way to remove older stains is to apply a heavy pre conditioning spray and allow it to sit on the carpet for 10 to 15 minutes before cleaning. Then slowly clean the soiled areas to make sure the dirt has time to be removed. Over wetting the carpet is a big concern and the amount of moisture used has to be monitored to make sure the carpet does not get soaked.
Soaked carpets can lead to mold, mildew, and a host of other germs and bacteria.
