    “Spot cleaning keeps your carpet looking good until you have time to call our Hometown Professional to do the job. Remember, carpet manufactures recommend having your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year. Twice if you soil them frequently. Cleaning your carpet too often can hurt your carpet and shorten it’s life-span. One of the problems that we come across is when homeowners clean their carpet themselves and leave behind a terrible residue in the carpet. This is especially true when using certain name brand carpet spot removers.

    These products leave a residue that temporarily leaves the spot looking good and giving you a false sense of satisfaction for a job well done. However, within a few weeks or even days, the spot is replaced with a grayish-blackish spot the continues to collect more dirt as the spot has traffic over it. When these spots are rinsed out, it leaves a residue that is worse than the original spot. One other item to note, keep in mind before you start spilling things on that stain – you may do more damage and end up costing yourself more money than if you just simply called a professional.

   Be sure to ask your Professional Carpet Care Specialist for “Carpet Shield” carpet protector.
