My carpets are getting worse and worse and I am slowly losing it. I am in an apartment so I cannot change over to laminate floors. By the same token I do not want the complex to change the carpet because I can't remove my conure for them to do so and will not allow it to be done with her there. I have a carpet steam cleaner specifically made for people with pets, but what can I use in it to thoroughly clean the carpets and remove the stains from years of foot traffic? Or is there a professional company someone uses that is known to be safe? I thought about Z****z but just read a horror story about it so now I am nervous to do anything! Please help! My carpets need it and I am desperate!
