What should I do if I spill something on my carpet? admin
Spills and pet accidents are the major two reasons for re-appearing spots. Time is critical! The first thing you should do when addressing spills or pet accidents is to place a clean dry towel over the spill and stand on it. You must absorb as much of the spill into the towel as possible. Letting the spill soak into the backing of the carpet will increase the risk of re-appearing spots in the future.
What can you do about the pet odor in my carpet? admin
Pet odor issues should be treated as quickly as possible. Accidents are bound to happen! Even with a house trained pet, your carpets and upholstery are subject to additional abuse. We use a complete cleaning process to ensure pet stains are kept to a minimum. The sooner a pet stain is treated, the better the chances of avoiding permanent damage. If untreated, over time the odor can permeate into other areas of your home. With a urine stain, it is extremely important to not allow the stain to set into the multiple layers of your carpeting.

Although we cannot guarantee every pet stain can be removed, we use the most effective techniques available to professional carpet cleaners.
