Spring Cleaning is more than just about tidying up, it’s about getting rid of all the dirt that’s accumulated over winter. Even if you vacuum every day, cleaning your carpet is essential for getting rid of dirt and allergens that your vacuum can’t reach. In fact, even though your carpet may look clean, a square yard of carpet can hide us much as a pound of dirt. Make sure you have the right equipment and know the different techniques to get your carpet fresh and clean. Carpet cleaning is an important part of any spring cleaning regimen, but spring isn’t the only time of year to do it. Actually, it’s recommend that you deep clean your carpets at least once or twice a year and up to six times a year if smokers, young children or pets are present. Reduce the cost of your carpet cleaning by using an equipment rental company.
