Why You Should Have Your Carpets Cleaned Professionally

Posted by Luke Henning on Sun, Jan 28, 2018

We like to think we can keep our carpets clean on our own. We just need to vacuum every month or so and blot when there’s a stain... right? Wrong. What you probably didn’t know is that almost all carpet companies will void your warranty if you don't professionally steam clean your carpet every 12 to 24 months. Just Vacuuming may not cut it, especially if you are a larger property owner. Neither is steaming carpets yourself. Professional steaming is legally the only way to protect your carpet in most cases.
