1. . Dirt is abrasive and the number one cause of wear and oxidation to your carpet. Be sure that you are vacuuming thoroughly at least once or twice per week in your traffic areas to keep the dry soils to a minimum and maximize the life of your carpet. This is a great for in between carpet cleanings with TLC Carpet Care.
2.To properly remove a spill use a dye free absorbent towel (preferably a white one to avoid dye color transfer) and hot tap water in a bottle containing a small amount of a vinegar. Next, alternate blotting and spraying the area, DO NOT over saturate the spot. You can even place a dry absorbent towel under something heavy like your feet to completely remove the moisture from the carpet. Most spills can be removed if they are cleaned early unless they're dye or bleach.
3. The correct method to remove a spill is to scrape the spot towards the middle and then blot with a white towel or cloth. Scrubbing or rubbing the spot will fray the carpet fibers and permanently damage the area.
