Many times you can clean a spot on your carpet to only have it return in days. What has happened is what is referred to as ‘wicking’. Wicking occurs when the substance that was spilled on the carpet has soaked through, into the backing of the carpet (and sometimes even the underpad). When you clean the spot, you are cleaning the surface of the carpet. But then the spill that is trapped in the backing and/or underpad can be reabsorbed by the carpet, and make its way up the fiber strands, back to the surface – like travelling up the wick of a candle (hence the name). We guarantee that your spots will not return. Contact us at (717) 215-2515 to see how we can help you!
