    Year Old Carpet Stains GONE

    I moved into an apt and the carpets looked okay, A few days later, mostly in the entrance way hall, stains appeared and I know I did not spill anything. I began the simple DIY tricks (many that are even listed on this site) every other day for a few months to no avail. Then I bought some carpet machines that did not work ( Dyson, Kirby, Rainbow, etc) and basically wasted thousands on machines that were useless. Then I started calling professionals in whom would boast to guarantee stain removal no matter what it is, went through 17 different companies and a couple of them left with it looking like the stains were gone but once the carpet was dried the stains were still there. What I have is commercial carpet similar to what you may see in offices. There is no backing underneath.

What I have is commercial carpet similar to what you may see in offices. There is no backing underneath. The floors themselves are concrete and the only places of any glue is along the edges. I once took some of the fibers to a lab for analysis to determine what is in the rug that will not come out and was told nothing chemical and nothing from any pet. Since I moved in back in 2002, every three days like clock work I attempt to get the stain out...If I remove the rug I will be evicted. If I replace the rug I will be evicted and that is why I was determined to get the stains out. There is no such thing as a guaranteed stain remover, some cases it is best to get rid of the rug. I challenge ANYONE to come and get a stain out...if you can, 10,000. cash for you and if you cant then 500. cash to me for wasting my time.
