What is the main purpose of getting carpets and upholstery cleaned? For most people, the answer would be “to make it look better.” And, of course, that’s a totally valid reason — it’s much more satisfying being in a room with a spotless carpet, and no one likes a chair or couch that’s splotched with weird discolored stains.

With that being said, there are more reasons to get your carpets and upholstery cleaned. Dust, allergens, and pollutants have a tendency of digging deep into these materials, and if they go a while without a thorough cleaning, they will start to have measurable effects on the air quality of your home.

There’s a reason why everything just “feels” cleaner when you walk into a new home or a model unit, even if you can’t explain why. Small factors such as the cleanliness of the carpets make a large difference in the long-run.
