Spot cleaning is something we all deal with from time to time. There are ways to clean a spot on your carpet, but there are things you should definitely avoid when it comes to carpet cleaning or rug cleaning:
No. 1: The use of over the counter carpet and rug cleaning products
Avoid using the over the shelf cleaners! In general we recommend not using these products because they can eventually damage the carpet fibers. You should not use those products marketed as “carpet cleaning sprays” or “carpet cleaning foams” not only because they do not do any good to your carpet, but also, the fact is many of them leave residue in the carpet fibers. The excess of the material from these products left in the carpet or rug will stay and will attract dust, and eventually will create brown spots in the area that you cleaned, so leave those products.
