They Have Left Us The Carpets – Great!
It’s one of those things that you never think about when you move into a new house – taking care of the carpets the previous owners have left for you to enjoy (responsibly).

Before you start jumping up and down for joy you need to remember this – carpet fibers act as a natural filter in the home. All these dust and dirt particles that have been flying up in the air every time someone entered the room? Yes, they settle down in the carpet. All the dirt and grime, and all of the related non-niceties that enter your place every time someone walks with their shoes on or leaves the window open. Not great, I admit.

Steam clean or deep clean your floor coverings using professional equipment that costs in excess of $5,000. OK, you got it. It works much easier and cheaper if you book a carpet cleaner to take care of this for you. It will cost you around $300 for an average sized property and that includes the tip.
