I grew up in a house with a lot of animals, a lot of people, and a lot of mess. None of the animals we had were strictly indoor animals, which meant that all of the dirt they accumulated on their feet quickly got into the home. I know my parents really didn’t like the mess, but there wasn’t a lot they could do about it. They both loved animals so much, as did my siblings and I, and we weren’t going to get rid of them. We also weren’t going to inhibit their movements just to the indoors. They would have gone crazy. On top of the animals, I was a fairly messy child. Come to think of it, I still kind of am! I can remember spilling dozens of glasses of juice or milk onto the carpet and quickly cleaning it up before my mom noticed. Over time, however, there were tons of stains on the carpet. To be fair to my family, it really didn’t look that bad, but we all tend to be a little bit of neat freaks so it drove everyone a little crazy. I can remember my parents renting a shampooer a few times a year and giving the carpet a deep, and much needed, cleaning. It would take a whole afternoon to shampoo a few rooms, and after they were cleaned, it would be a couple of days before we could remove the towels that we used to walk on.
In hindsight, my family should have hired a carpet cleaning service to do the work for us. They don’t have to come nearly as often as we shampooed our carpet, and because of the great equipment that they have, they do such a fantastic job that you can barely tell there were any stains in the first place. The other great aspect of hiring professionals to do your carpet cleaning is that you don’t have to waste an entire afternoon cleaning them. You simply set up a time for them to come, and then take care of other errands and chores while they do their week. They steam clean your carpets as well, leaving them smelling nice for months to come.
Most carpet cleaning services also offer upholstery cleaning services and stain removal. This means that any of the furniture you have in your home that could use a cleaning or some stain removal will get taken care of. Think of that old piece of furniture you have in your home that you know doesn’t look the greatest or smell the best, but is the most comfortable thing you own to sit down in. Rather than having to get rid of your favorite piece of furniture, you can simply have it cleaned and left looking great. You’ll be able to extend the life of your furniture. The next time you are spending countless hours cleaning your carpet or your furniture, and it still doesn’t come out looking great, give a professional carpet cleaning service a call.
