If you aren't quite sure how tanning spray would end up on carpet - let us explain. There is a 'waiting time' essentially for a spray tan to work and sometimes it is just a matter of when the customer gets their tan done ie if they need to sleep with it on before showering.
Either way, the product can be transferred to a whole range of spaces within a home, hotel or where ever they travel during that time.
They could also be doing self tanning at home so it could be on bedroom floors or be tracked through the house too.
Either way - it is another daily stain our customers are getting asked to help remove. This blog from Tom Forsythe was originally posted on 17 November 2022 and is a nice, easy ready on how to tackle these stains.
Tanning sprays are a combination of oils and dyes that are often difficult to remove.
1. Do not make any promises or guarantees to your customer if attempting to remove
Note: If the carpet is constructed of olefin, polyester, or triexta fibers, the fibers will have an affinity (an attraction) for oil. Within a few months, oily stains can actually become part of the carpet fiber and will be impossible to remove. This type of carpet must be cleaned frequently. The oils will not bond with nylon fibers as they do with the other fibers.
