The Heat Transfer - The Professional Carpet Cleaner's Secret Weapon

How to do a Heat Transfer:

A few key factors make a great carpet cleaning company stand out. One is their commitment to tackling stubborn stains that resist professional cleaning. Try this professional trick for those tough stains that don’t budge even with powerful truck-mounted steam cleaning systems. You’ll be amazed at the results! The Heat Transfer process is simple and can be done with common household items. Follow the steps below next time you encounter a stubborn stain.

Brown Stains: Pet Urine, Coffee, Tea, Red Wine, etc... 

Mix one quarter teaspoon of liquid hand dish washing detergent and three tablespoons of white vinegar with two cups of warm water. 

Red Stains: Kool-Aid, Gatorade, Red Punch, etc...

Mix one quarter teaspoon of liquid hand dish washing detergent and three tablespoons of ammonia with two cups of warm water.

  1. Using a clean white Terri-cloth rag, blot the stain with your prepared solution above until you remove as much of the spill as possible. Make sure you use enough solution for some of it to remain on the carpet fibers but not so much that it over wets the carpet.
  2. Rinse out your rag thoroughly then ring it out leaving it slightly damp.
  3. Place the rag over the stain
  4. Use a common household iron. Set it on medium steam apply pressure to the rag 20 seconds at a time. Move it around frequently.
  5. Lift the damp rag to check the stain, If some discoloration still remains repeat steps 1-4 until the stain is completely gone.

Note: This process works on new and old stains and is a safe and proven method for stain removal. Should you have any problems removing a colored stain with this method contact your local carpet cleaning specialist.
