Lets say you have family and friends coming over to your home for the holidays and your dog just had an accident in the middle of the room. Don’t panic, follow these steps to help remove stubborn spots or spills that might accrue in an untimely manor.
1. Use a wet vac or some type of extraction method to remove as much liquid and soil from unwanted area as possible.
2. Treat the unwanted area with a cleaner as specific to the spot/stain as possible. It is very important not to use any bleach anytime, ever! Gently blot the spot, do not swirl as this could spread the spot.
3. If the stain remains, start over and pour water on the area to rinse and dampen. Don’t oversaturate, but do put enough to wet the spotted area adequately.
Use these techniques at your own risk, when in doubt call a carpet cleaning professional. Always pretest in a inconspicuous area in case of color loss or bleeding of colors. Wet vac is more efficient in removing soil and water then a towel.
