When Did You Last Have Your Carpet Commercially Cleaned?

- Bio pollutants
- Volatile organic compounds

Even if you don’t smoke, the people that lived there before you might have. And these chemicals are picked up by shoes and feet, tracked all over the home and deposited in other areas of your carpet. Now if this doesn’t make you want to hire a commercial carpet cleaner, I don’t know what possibly could.
