Rust RemovalSpotting – Rust

Introduction

This stain is a reddish-brown  that will come in all shapes and sizes and is very common to the on-location carpet cleaner. It is caused by metal reacting to oxygen when moisture is present.

 

Procedure –

Step 1 – Apply T-Rust directly to the spot

Step 2 – Agitate with a Spotting Brush Give 1-2 minutes of dwell time if needed

Step 3 – Extract chemical from the fibers using extraction machine

Step 4 – Repeat steps 1-3 if rust color is still present

Step 5 – Rinse with water from your extraction machine

Step 6 – Neutralize with a mist of Power Rinse

Step 7 – Dry quickly with an Air Mover

 

Note : Removal does not actually result in the removal of the reacting metals; rather, it changes the color to clear. It is not necessary to educate the customer on this fact.
