Stains are discolorations to fibers. Perhaps you accidentally spilled some bleach or cleaning products on your carpet and notice it left a very light mark. Chances are you have just experienced color loss from those fibers.
A broad range of chemicals and other factors can cause color loss on carpet. Bleach is not the only culprit. Although the chemicals are different from household bleach, most acne medications, some cosmetics, hair treatments and other medications contain a form of a bleaching agent.
Many common cleaning products, including many popular carpet-cleaning products, scented home deodorizing products, pesticides, pool and spa chemicals, some perfumes, aerosol sprays, laundry detergents contain bleaching agents and many other chemicals cause unwanted color loss, fading or discoloration. These areas may appear as white, orange, or yellow spots on your carpet.
Carpet dyeing will let you mask stains from juices, coffees, urine, powdered drinks, wine or bleach stains. Dyeing your carpet is a good alternative to buying a new one if you just need to hide a stain. You need to hire a professional Prestige Systems carpet dyeing to do this task.
Carpet spot dyeing is most specialized service. If color /dye has been removed from your carpet by a bleach or cleaning solution, we can repair it in many cases! Re-dyeing the area of carpet affected by the color loss restores the carpet color similar to the original dye, making the spots much less visible.
Prestige Systems is an industry certified color repair/carpet spot dyeing specialist. We can dye your carpet to repair "bleach spots" & small stained areas that cleaning will not remove. Examples are: chemical spills, permanent pen marks, gloss paint or varnish, rust and wood stain.
Dyeing a carpet is only suitable for small areas, spills etc.
Most carpet cleaners will give up trying to remove some stains and state they "are permanent" & that "nothing can be done" NOT TRUE. If you have a pink patch on your living rooms cream carpet following a spill of red wine and you don't want to "live with it" we can remove the coloring and re-color and dye the patch to match the original color.
Our business comes from repeat clients and referrals. It is our goal to make your cleaning experience as easy and non-stressful as possible.
Area Rugs are tremendous sentimental value. They take a lot of punishment from soil, spills, constant foot and even pets traffic. Over time signs of soil and contamination become evident requiring professional cleaning and restoration.

Different Types of Oriental/Area Rugs
We'll give you a brief outline so that you can know the difference in oriental rugs before you buy.
Persian Rugs - When most people hear the word Oriental rug they think of a Persian rug. That's because of all the Oriental rugs the Persian rugs are the easiest to identify and so people remember them. Persia know called Iran, has a reputation for producing the highest quality and most beautiful rugs in the entire world. And they've been doing this for hundreds of years. The traditional designs have the name of the tribal region where they were made. Kerman, Sarouk, Tabriz are three of the most common areas.
Persian rugs are easily identified by their geometric patterns and intricate floral patterns. Antique Persian rugs are very popular and highly sought after often bringing very high prices if they are in excellent condition. Of course, you can buy a modern Persian rug for a reasonable price and it will still have the geometric and floral patterns of the area.
Indian Rugs- Most of the Oriental rugs that we buy in the western world originate from India. The rug industry in India is one of the main forms of employment for rural workers. The modern India rugs are made in the traditional designs and patterns but cost a fraction of the price. And of course the quality is as good as it was in the past. They are still hand made by the locals.
There is one rug that is produced in India that actually did originate in India. That is the traditional dhurrie rug which is a cotton and wool rug, sometimes with other natural fibers, created in a variety of traditional patterns, as well as some contemporary patterns.
Turkey Rugs- are a real find and highly sought after because they are all between 50 and 75 years old. The first world war put an end to the Turkish Oriental rug industry and they are just now beginning to make a comeback as the current government now encourages this industry. Turkey rugs are identifiable by their traditional designs and very rich colors.
Tibet rugs- are one of the most prized rugs to own. Entire families from villages are involved in making Oriental rugs. One rug can take as many as 3500 hours to complete. The wool of the Himalayan sheep is used to make these rugs. It has a high lanolin content making it perfect from rugs. Tibetan rugs can be recognized from their very rich colors and rustic patterns as well as the variations in color and texture. Each rug is truly a unique piece and a work of art. But be prepared to pay a pretty price for one of these beauties!
Rugs from Afghanistan divide generally into rugs woven by Afghan and rugs woven by Balouch weavers. Good quality Afghan rugs are made in weaving centers in northern Afghanistan like Herat, Daulatabad and Kunduz; very good quality Balouch scatter rugs come from near Herat
Now that you know the differences in Oriental rugs you'll make a better buy. Your room will thank you for the beautiful addition to your home decor and your friends and family will envy you!

Pet Odor & Stain Removal
We empathize with how much you love your pets, and at times, how much work they can be. If your pet has an unfortunate accident on the carpet, we have the tools to make it as if it never happened. It is common for people to use a spot cleaner to remove the stain, which can do a good job for appearance at times. However, we have the tools and expertise to completely remove the accident as deep as the carpet padding, stifling the growth of unwanted bacteria in your home.
Our cleaning products are safe & Non-Toxic for Children & Pets. One of the rules for carpet odor removal is to act promptly, because once the stain has set in it will be harder to extract the visual and olfactory traces of it. An often overlooked cause of unpleasant odor is mildew that has resulted from the floor covering or the padding beneath it getting overly wet and staying damp. The growth of bacteria is a side effect of allowing a spill or accident to settle into the carpet fibers, but it is also something that can easily be prevented.
Some smells, like cigarette smoke, may not be pinned to a specific location on the floor covering. Sometimes scents linger long after the offending spot has been identified, soaped, blotted, rinsed and deodorized. A strong ammonia scent can overwhelm a room and lead people to search for the best method of carpet odor removal. A steam cleaning is usually the approach taken to combat lingering smells. Steam cleaning can result in a deeper cleansing than regular vacuuming or spot cleaning a spill and can be bought or rented for in home use. A steam cleaner uses water heated to the point of evaporation to penetrate the pile of the floor covering deeply. The steam dislodges debris and dirt that are trapped in the fibers. The steam itself is not enough to remove stains or odors though, and usually a cleaning solution is used in conjunction with the machine.
We Can Remove your Pet Odor!
Leaving pet urine in your carpet or rug can create permanent damage that only a professional can repair. If pet urine is left in the carpet, it will eventually turn into ammonia crystal. This will not only increase the odor, but it can damage the dye the carpet creating faded areas that ruin the appearance of the carpet. If you have urine in an expensive rug, it can cause the colors to run if the rug gets wet and can damage large areas of the rug. This will not only make the rug look ruined, but can mean your valuable rug has lost its value. This is why pet urine needs to be removed quickly before it can start to damage your valuable carpets and rugs.

Regular Furniture Cleaning
Homeowners often do not look beyond their carpet when it comes to maintaining interior fabrics. Upholstery is often never cleaned because they don't look visibly dirty. However, the same soils that fall out of horizontal surfaces in your home also fall out onto the upholstery are filtered through the fabric.
Studies show that upholstered fabrics should be cleaned every year and if there are smokers in the home or pets, they should be cleaned twice a year. Some upholstered fabrics can easily be wet cleaned whereas other more delicate fabrics must be dry cleaned.
