It is important to keep carpet clean because, if you are unable to, it can prevent your home from being damaged in a storm.

If you have carpet, and it has soaked in water, it is very important to clean it immediately, especially if it has been a long time since the carpet was dry.
If the carpet is wet, do not let it soak in any water.
It may have water stuck to it.
Always wipe the carpet with a damp cloth before washing.
The carpet will absorb any moisture and be very hard to remove.
Clean your carpet with hot water.

Do a thorough cleaning every few days, unless you have a pet.
Do the same with the floor, carpets, and floors of all your living rooms and bathrooms.
