A newly installed carpet looks great in a home, sometimes transforming the entire look and feel of the space it’s in. Unfortunately, over time this fresh new look can and will start to look dark and dingy. Whether it’s from regular foot traffic, kids or pets, let’s face it, carpets take a beating and need to be properly maintained to keep them looking and smelling good. If you stay on a regular frequency, a professional carpet cleaner will keep those old dingy carpets looking, and most importantly, smelling brand new. Instead of waiting until your carpets look bad, most manufacturers recommend that you have them professionally cleaned at least once every 18 months.
