Food & Drink Contamination On Carpet

What is one of the most common things that is spilled onto carpet?
Food and drinks. We love to entertain and have friends and family over for social gatherings, and more than likely food and drinks are in the equation. Small little spills here and there that seem harmless, can turn into a bacterial nightmare if it’s not cleaned up properly.  Food and drink stains are some of the most stubborn stains to pick up. Not only is it a pain to get the dyes that are left on the carpet fibers, but if these spills are not cleaned up quickly and efficiently, bacteria can gradually start growing and infesting deep into your carpet fibers. In fact, you would be surprised with what could potentially be lurking in your carpets. Eek!
Enzymes are one of the most effective methods used to treat food and drink stains.
Enzymes eliminate odors by causing a biological or chemical reaction. Cleaning with enzymes is also a great treatment for pet and odor stains. Enzymes are a type of protein that are produced by living organisms, but they’re not alive. An enzyme is composed of a chain of amino acids, and it’s the changes to the sequence in the structure, that determines the sole purpose of the enzymes.   Some of the two most common enzymes used in cleaning products are amylases and proteases, since they happen to be food-based. They are also the catalysts behind removing and altering the physical properties in many protein related stains and odors.
