Having a professional cleaning, at the very least annually, on your carpet and rugs is so important. A dirty rug or carpet can have thousands of dust mites living in the dust. Not to mention, the pounds of soil can accumulate underneath and in it every year. Carpet and rugs can contain several indoor contaminates and promote the growth of mold in damp areas which often cause allergies. Because it can be a health hazard, it is important to always keep your home furnishings clean.
