Here's a tough carpet stain problem solved by Kennays Carpet Care. The carpet had been taped off to represent a roadway for kids down a hallway. It was installed several years ago.

They no longer use it for that so they removed the tape and it left a sticky residue which Kennays was able to remove using Saf-T-Solv™ solvent spotter with a brush and a terry cloth followed by cleaning with Bane-Clene truckmounted extraction carpet cleaning equipment and detergents.

Kennays Carpet Care serves the needs of carpet, rug and upholstery customers in Illinois.
