The Faster you Clean the Better!
The best piece of advice that we can provide for DIY carpet cleaning is to take care of stains immediately. The longer you leave a stain the harder it is going to be to get out.
As soon as something that should not be on the carpet ends up on the carpet use a clean cloth or a paper towel to dab up the spill. Like we mentioned many times on our blog you do not want to rub at a stain. This will just push the stain further into the carpet fibers.

Even if you are very good at remembering to take off your shoes before entering your home there is always going to be times where somebody slips up. Just by going in and out of your home you bring in dust and grime.
