Staring at your four year old throwing chocolate chips on the carpet doesn't look good. Witnessing him melting them against the carpet will be your worst nightmare. No need to go that far. If you want to be true to yourself, you'd admit that there are stains all over the carpet – no matter how often you clean it. After all, stains are unavoidable especially if you are parents, eat at home, the kids bring friends over from school often, you bring friends too, and own a couple of dogs, a cat, two rabbits, a parrot and a goat. Pet hair and urine alone can be enough for you to breathe in a nasty indoor environment, get skin irritations, and develop some allergies. In other words, carpet stains will not only make the worst impression on your visitors, but will also damage your health. That's why timely carpet stain removal is significant.
Wouldn't it seem bad to you visiting a house with red, blue and green stains on the carpets? That's how others see your house, too. We often make excuses for having too much work to do, eight kids and about a dozen of pets and although these things might be true, good carpet cleaning is still important. You might have a very nice family which brings home every orphan pet found in the street, but your health will depend on whether pet stains and odors are removed effectively. It's not about appearances. It's about protecting your children and every member of your family from infections and allergies.
Some things cannot be avoided. Children might vomit, you might spill some wine, pets will urinate, blood from a wound can stain your floor, chewing gum stuck at the bottom part of your shoe will stick on fibers too, and some macaroni and cheese will certainly find its place under the table. The question is whether these stains are cleaned right away. The faster you take care of them the more effective the process of stain removal will be. A friend visiting your house won't think bad of you if there are a few stains here and there (or he/she wouldn't be a friend), but stains will make your house smell bad and might also be the cause for bacteria development.
There is no reason for you to be hysterical when it comes to stains. Though, it is significant to keep white vinegar, baking soda and some ecofriendly carpet and rug cleaning products in the house so that you can take care of stains as soon as possible. This way, you will avoid health issues and never lead other people drawing the wrong impressions of you. You can easily shut the mouths of the bad gossipers and keep a clean house, too.
