Extreme Carpet Cleaning Story Yields Real Homeowner Carpet Cleaning Tips
My friend Bethany Richmond from the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI), recently posted an amazing carpet cleaning success story on the Carpet and Rug Institute Blog - about the Jet Stream Grill, a restaurant in Chattanooga, TN. Yes, it's about a commercial environment and not a residence. That means that it's the equivalent of an extreme carpet cleaning makeover situation and there are real lessons for home owners.
Carpet Cleaning Tips For Homeowners
- Vacuum your carpet thoroughly and regularly and don't forget to check your vacuum bag on a regular basis. Be sure to replace it when it's full!
- Don't just use any carpet cleaning product. Check out CRI's Seal of Approval (SOA) products which have earned that Seal of Approval by going through performance tests and meeting specific standards.
- Seriously consider working with a professional carpet cleaning service provider. You can locate an SOA approved service provider by zip code by visiting this page on the CRI website. They use not only approved products, but also approved equipment.
