I also used SS and wouldn't use them again. They used a "special finish" on my carpet that doubled the price of the job. Instead of repelling dirt, it attracts it. :dontknow:

Get a spray can of Spot Shot and saturate it. Then leave it on for a few minutes and absorb it with an old rag. It will take out any stain and not harm the carpet. You can get it at grocery or Sams Club.

We used SteamMasters and were most pleased with thier service, honesty & integrity. Tim spent a lot of time at our place doing a fabulous job and reasonably priced, too! I'd call them and you won't be disappointed. They stand behind the work they do! 352-874-3530

I have used a product for small areas called "Capture". I found at a Home Depot or a Lowe's. It is a dry powder. Simply Pre-Moist with special product that comes either in the box or separate. Sprinkle the dry solution all over and rub in with a brush on a long handle. Wait and vacuum. They also have a dry powder spot remover that comes with a brush, sprinkle, lightly brush and vacuum. The product work awesome on small projects. It keeps the rug from getting wet and does not act like a magnet for soil after cleaning. Have used on almost all spills, stains, accidents by animals and grand children.

Ditto on Steve. We have around 1400 sf of carpet. He did all the carpet, did the tile in the kitchen, and cleaned the upholstery on a sofa, loveseat, and recliner. Total cost was $140. He got out some stains that I thought were permanent.

Best carpet stain remover I have ever used, especially for pets, is "Nature's Miracle" available at PetSmart/PetCo. It removes all stains, all smells. You name it, it removes it. Wonderful stuff.

By the way, we have a wonderful carpet cleaner we are going to sell. It is the kind you can rent at various places. We used it in our home before we moved here just a few times so it is like new, and works well! (we have tile floors here in TV).

It is a Rug Doctor Mighty Pro. Let me know if you are interested! $375.
