Daily Cleaning Procedures
Visually check the area for any types of debris or paper. Pick these items up and dispose of them properly. Vacuum up any dirt or debris that can’t be removed by hand.

If there are any spots or stains on the carpets, floors, walls, furniture or baseboards immediately wipe those up. For carpet or upholstery stains, identifying the type of stain by using this stain removal instructions guide. Then follow up with a portable spotter like our carpet spotter stain removing machine to remove the stain and chemical.
