When we have carpets, they always seem to attract stains. You could drop a glass of water and somehow it will stain the carpet. If you take out the spot cleaner, then it just makes the carpet look worse with a few really clean spots. But, cleaning the entire carpet seems like such an issue to. For some easy carpet cleaning tips you can: 1. Find a company - If you don't mind paying this is an option, just ask friends for recommendations. 2. Use baking soda and white vinegar - Sprinkling baking soda on the carpet and vacuuming it up, helps to clean stains off the carpet and the white vinegar will disinfect any bacteria that might be on it.
