Here are before and after pictures from a recent job. There was a water leak that resulted in the finish from the mahogany used in this billiard room transferring to the wall-to-wall carpet. There were two areas primarily affected, the most heavily stained seen in the pictures, but there were also a number of smaller areas affected.
While wanting a stain-free carpet was obviously the ultimate goal, another concern was having to dismantle the pool table if new carpet had to be installed. Needless to say, the client was very happy with both a stain-free carpet and intact pool table.
