Today I have a cleaning post for you.
Let’s start out with our before and afters, shall we?
Looks pretty good, eh?
I first saw this carpet cleaning method over at DIY & Crafts and I pinned it for a time when I would need it.
Well as you can tell in the before picture, I needed it 🙂
This was our apartment in California. This was our family room area, just after walking in through the front door.
When we first moved in they had just cleaned the carpets.
It looked beautiful.
Then, slowly over a period of a few months these black spots just started appearing.
We didn’t realize until much later that the big palm tree-type trees outside our apartment would drip a sap-like substance that would get tracked into our apartment. We would always take our shoes off when we got home, but most of the time the shoes would just get tossed and end up on the carpet…hence the spots. This was the only area in the apartment that looked like this, and it was so annoying because it was the main area people would see when they came over.
One day I just decided to tackle these ugly spots and it worked!
