The Frustrations of Do It Yourself Carpet Cleaning

Which stains should be pretreated? Do I blot or scrub? Which carpet cleaner is best to buy? Will these chemicals harm my carpet? What about my kids or pets? These are all good questions. Our favorite answer is always “regular cleanings by a professional“. However, some ‘in-between-cleanings’ advice can be helpful.

  4. Allow time for the chemicals to do their work. (Read the instructions. Follow them.)
