WHAT IS CARPET BROWNING?

You see carpet browning after professional carpet cleaning appointments for one main reason. This happens because the San Antonio carpet cleaner used too much water and soaked the carpet during their service. You can prevent carpet browning in your home. Here is how:

The reason carpet browning occurs is from your carpet becoming too wet. This can happen from water damage from leaky plumbing or a leaky roof or windows. This can also happen from hiring a carpet cleaning company in San Antonio that relies on using a lot of soap and water in their methods.

This is a common practice for services that use the steam cleaning method for cleaning carpet. To steam clean carpet, a company sprays soap onto the floor and then uses gallons of water to rinse the dirt and the soap out of the carpet. This is very hard to do. Most companies that use steam cleaning leave water behind in the carpet.

If you think about it, it requires a lot of water to rinse soap off of dirty dishes or even of off your arms or legs when you are in the shower. The differences is that your kitchen sink or your shower both have drains for the soap to rinse into. Your carpet doesn’t have a drain.

The water left behind permeates the carpet pad below. This pulls up very deep dirt from the carpet pad to the surface of the carpet where you can see the effects of carpet browning with your own eyes. You can try to remove the brown spots but the spots will probably return shortly after because evaporation continues to lift the water and dirt from the pad to the surface. You also see instances of carpet bubbling from steam cleaning.
