CLEAN UP

The Spokesman-Review

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.
