A number of cleaners use bleach or chlorine to kill germs, viruses, and bacteria. At times cleaning agents can spill or get misused on the carpet, which will result in a bleach spot. Another other source which is less common are bleaching agents found in hygiene products. Foot and external cream often contain a bleaching chemical. At times bleach spots will form the shape of foot prints that dot across the carpets.
