If you plan to clean your carpets at home, follow these steps for good results:
• Pre-treat spots and traffic areas with a cleaning solution in a spray bottle.
• Go easy on the soap and chemicals. Use only as much as the manufacturer recommends. Too much can act as a magnet for future soiling.
• Finally, don’t leave the carpet soaking wet.
Excess water can damage the seams and backing material.
