Spills happen. It’s a fact. First thing to know about cleaning up small spills is to avoid over-wetting your carpet. Berber, Multi-level, or Looped carpets retain more liquid. For these types of carpets, over-wetting can sometimes result in musty odors due to the carpet remaining damp for too long. If you are unable to remove the stain and additional cleaning is still needed, allow carpets to dry before attempting to re-clean heavily soiled areas.
