Environmentally Friendly Cleaning

These days, we’re told we have to eat better, sleep better, exercise better. So we choke down kale, get our eight hours of rest, and hop on the elliptical until we’re sweating like the pilot in Airplane! We’re told to do this so that we can be healthier.

So why do so many of us not feel healthier? Believe it or not, the answer might be right under your feet. When is the last time you had your carpet professionally cleaned? Go ahead and think about it. We’ll wait.

Now that you have an approximate guess, let us hit you with some knowledge. In order to keep your carpet in tiptop shape and free of allergens of all sorts, the suggested time period is 12-18 months for high traffic areas, with a two year time frame for your whole house. Of course, it all depends on factors like if you have pets, children or more people living in the house.

And we’re guessing from your reaction that it’s been quite a big longer. If that’s the case, think about what is in your carpet: dirt, dust, and all sorts of things to make your path to health and wellness seem like the road to nowhere.

And don’t get us started on your upholstery.

We get it; you take care of your house, and you vacuum your carpets regularly. But vacuuming is not enough. It takes a thorough cleaning to bring back not only the vibrancy of the carpet, but also the air quality you might be lacking.

At Sams Carpet Service, we use an environmentally friendly cleaning system. Using the latest removal technology available, we pre-treat your carpet for stains and smells. We then use our powerful extraction cleaning system, which allows us to thoroughly clean all sides of the carpet fiber. A fresh-water rinse is also applied to remove any residue. This helps to keep your carpet cleaner… longer.

By the time we leave your home, your carpets will not only be cleaner, but they’ll be free of many pollutants you didn’t even know were there.

And we can do the same for your upholstery, too!

You want to live a healthier life, and we’re here to help with your goal. No, we’re not going to bench press a single weight for you, we can’t make you not binge watch Netflix at 1am, and we can’t say we adore kale, but we can help with making your home a healthier environment.
