4/19/2017 (Permalink)

Its that time of year again where we get to finally open our windows and let the fresh air in! The sun is out later in the evenings and the barbecues and family get-together's have started. The flowers and trees have started to bloom and it smells like fresh cut grass outside. However its not all sunshine and rainbows! What happens when your family comes over for a barbecue and the kids get ketchup and mustard all over your beautiful white carpet? Carpets are a sponge for allergens and bacteria causing spring allergies to worsen and linger for longer than ever needed. Its is extremely important to create a carpet cleaning regimen that way your home is always smelling fresh and clean. And not just smelling fresh and clean--internally, the carpet itself is healthier therefore not just clean on the outside but through the pad as well. So before you invite the family over or lay the blankets on the living room floor for a spring break movie night with the kids, make sure you call SERVPRO. Our showcase carpet cleaning will have your home party ready!
