than usual the areas of the carpet where people pass by often.

For wall-to-wall carpeting, divide the area where you wish to vacuum into 4 quadrants. The
reason behind is that you'll probably clean the area thoroughly when you divide it by
sections rather than attempting to deal with it as a whole. It is essential to slow pace your
vacuum cleaning so that deep rooted dirt will be removed.

from the outer region of the stain and move in a circular motion going inwards. Blot the
area free from moisture after you apply the solution. If the moisture is still there after
buffing, what you can do is put a towel on top of the area followed by a weight to press it
against the carpet. This will allow the moisture to seep into the towel completely.
