Cleaning your carpet regularly can extend its life significantly. Vacuuming carpets at least once a week is a great way to limit the accumulation of dirt. Dirt particles sink deep into your carpet and can create odors. When the carpet is dirty microbes are floating around. These microbes can cause asthma related allergies, coughs, colds, watery eyes, and runny noses. The air quality in your home will dramatically improve when these microbes are cleaned. 

Accidents happen so when they do make sure the situation is dealt with appropriately. Do not rub the stain in because, this will cause it to sink in deeper. SERVPRO of Encino/Sherman Oaks recommends that you spray the carpet cleaning agent onto a cloth and dabbing it onto the stain.
