When was the last time you had your carpets cleaned by a professional company?
Unexpected accidents or stains by a child or pet, you may feel can be cleaned by yourself with a carpet cleaning solution and a rag. DON’T wait to have them professionally cleaned!
The Environmental Protection Agency recommends carpets in residential homes are cleaned every 6-12 months if 2 people or less live in the home who are nonsmokers. Larger families with both kids and pets, the EPA recommends a professional carpet cleaning every 3 months.

Pet dander, dust and a multitude of other germs collect on your carpet, which acts as a filter for air circulating through your home. Clean carpets can make a difference in the quality of life for pregnant women, people with allergies and asthma, and the elderly.
