How to deep clean your carpet after a wild party
Category : Home and Garden
So, the wild party is over, and you’re now faced with a messy room and stained carpet? Nobody thinks about the aftermath of a party while they’re dancing and drinking, and that’s alright.
Don’t worry if you find a big stain on your floor because carpets usually have it the worst. In most cases, people spill drinks on your floor without even noticing until the next day.
Your carpet is probably dirty even if you didn’t find any crazy stains, more so if the people didn’t take off their shoes. For this reason, it’s best if you give your carpets some deep cleaning as soon as possible.

It’s a smart idea to test white vinegar on a discreet part of your carpet just to check if it might damage the coloring.
