It's time to clean your carpets! Here's a few facts to motivate you to do just that!
80 percent of the dirt in your house walks in through the door on people's feet. Bacteria can live after four weeks on the carpet. Yuck.
Did you know the carpet in your home could be seven times dirtier than a city street? (Do you lie down on your carpet to watch TV at night? Do your children play on the carpet? Gross.)
Did you know that even if a carpet appears beautiful and clean, it can actually hide as much as a pound of dirt per square yard.
2,000 dust mites can live on one ounce of carpet dust. Oooooh.
Did you know you should clean your carpets every few months? Not only will it keep your home cleaner, but will extend the life of the carpet.
Beware! Not all carpet cleaning services are the same. Beware of the cheapest price thrown out at you over the phone. Many homeowners find that the lowest price they saw advertised is not the amount they are charged in the end. Methods vary depending on your need. Before you select a company, decide what you want to accomplish. There's a lot to consider. What is your carpet made of? Has your carpet been treated for stain resistance? Where is the carpet and what's the amount of traffic it gets? Does anybody in the house have allergies? Is there a lot of visible soiling? How much furniture needs to be moved?
