Carpet Cleaning - Spot Removal

Carpet manufacturers recommend your carpets be cleaned by a trained and qualified professional every 12 to 18 months. Today's over-the-counter spot removing products, when used incorrectly can ruin a carpet. They can set the spot or remove color from the carpet depending on the fiber type.
There is another type of spot that occurs almost daily. Beverage spills! This is probably the most common spot your carpet can face. Immediate blotting and rinsing can prevent spots from appearing. Unfortunately, they are rarely treated properly and timely and the "spot" can set in. There are treatments available to correct these situations most of the time, even more so if the homeowner hasn't "set" the spot into the fiber.
