Types Of Stains On Carpets

  1. Protein stains

Protein stains occur through blood, vomit or faeces, etc. and they can be removed with the help of protein digesters which are enzymatic products.

Coffee or tea forms organic stains on the carpet because the heat of the stains binds with the fibres of the carpet and leaves a tanned stain behind. These stains are removed with the help of water-soluble products but with a lot of difficulties.

The Chemistry Behind Skin Lotion Stain Removal

Skin lotions are chemically carbon chain compounds that are organic and these stains can be easily broken by enzymes and or can be removed with the help of surfactants. These surfactant compounds are generally compounded having a charged water-soluble head and an oil-soluble tail. They removed the lotion stain by forming micelles around the stain in which the oil-soluble part gets stuck to the surface and the oil-soluble portion gets dissolved in the lotion water-insoluble part and thus the whole micelle structure becomes water-soluble and easily able to wash out the stain.
