Since you state you have recently bought new Carpeting, and that this
was a Stainmaster Carpet, no doubt it probably cost you a good penny to
have put in.
If you have quite a bit of it in the house, a good recommendation I
suggest, is to buy yourself a 1/2 way decent Carpet Steamer. Something
like a Bissel Pro Heat upright Steam Cleaner will fit the bill nicely,
and are easily gotten from places like Best Buy, and even Wally World.
The machine over a short time will pay for itself, as you won't have to
ever call the carpet cleaning boys, and be at their mercy ($$$) for
generally a horrible job that they do anyway.
Ever notice how these guys (Stanley Steamer, and the like) are in, and
out in under an hour, the carpet is soaken wet for two days, and doesn't
look any cleaner?
I honestly don't think any of these companies use solution, they just
water to clean to cut their overhead costs. Then how they always seem
to tack on their extra little "charges"? (Pre-treat, Spot Clean,
Deodorize, StainBlocker, etc)
The only thing they are experts at, is sweet talking you out of your
hard earned money, and "professionally" twisting you arm, turning a low
"estimated" cost job into a much more expensive one.
These upright Bissel Steam Heat Extraction Machines work very good, and
IMO, are the best method for cleaning (Versus spraying something on a
carpet, and then just rubbing it in).
The self heated automatically mixed "solution-hot water" they produce
that is sprayed down is virtually immediately picked up as you go, the
carpets are dry in 2-4 hours, you do them at your convenience, and do
them when, and as often as you like.
Have another emergency-accident? No problem, out comes the machine, it's
up, and running in 5 minutes, and done a short time later.
For what you've invested in carpet, I say spring another $200 for a
machine. I really like mine, and from doing a few friend's carpets with
them, the machine has easily paid for itself.
They'll also serve double duty, with the Upholstery Attachments for
cleaning couches, etc, and also great for doing your vehicle's interior
