Proper cleaning is an essential part of maintaining a clean carpet flooring. However, no matter how careful we are, accidents happen and your carpet can’t escape the occasional spill or leak.
If you have a pet or a toddler, it is very likely that you are going to have a urine stain on your carpet flooring at one time or another. Potty training a puppy on pads may take some time so expect your pet to soil everywhere including the carpets. Small children and elders with limited bowel control can also soil the carpet accidentally.
