Why are rust stains in carpet so difficult to remove?
Rust is a truly disgusting stain to have on your carpeting. Rust occurs when metal-based objects are exposed to moisture. This often happens if you leave a bicycle out in the rain, or a pair of hedge trimmers. Rust is typically an iron oxide, which means that the iron has oxidized in the presence of moisture. If you’re trying to bring a rusted object inside your home, you definitely run the risk of a rust carpet stain. You see, the longer an item has been rusting, the more susceptible it is to flaking. Rusted items have experienced surface breakdown and easily crack and flake rusted metal everywhere.
Oftentimes people have rust carpet stains when they try to bring in a rusted item to clean. They then end up tracking in the rust from the flaking on to their carpeting. Luckily, KickAss Stain Remover has been specially formulated to remove even the toughest of stains like rust carpet stains.
Tips for preventing rust stains in carpet
Whenever you’re getting ready to clean a rusted object, it’s best to clean the object in your garage or backyard. Never bring a rusted item into your home. Also, if you’ve been working with a rusted object, take off your shoes and clothes before entering the home. Rust flakes can easily stick to your shoes and clothing and be tracked into the home.
