If you have a good routine at home, it is very possible to get all the normal cleaning done and still have time in the month to give the carpets a really good clean. This is something that defeats me on a regular basis. It’s not something I sweat a lot about. I don’t have children who regularly roll around my sitting room floor or pets that run about with noses pressed to the floor. But every so often, particularly in advance of a family gathering I’m hosting, I do feel that overwhelming need to get the carpets done properly. There is no doubt that the professional cleaning machine is so much better than the tiddly little amateur gizmos you can hire. The professional cleaner knows how to reach every corner. They extract the maximum grubbiness out of the carpet and it is left as soft as physically possible. Oh and the lovely sweet clean smell.
