For some homes, carpets and rugs can really make a room. They can add so much colour and really make a room inviting. All the rage right now is fluffy rugs, and for good reason. They look so warm and comfortable and sit really well in front of fireplace or under a nice coffee table.

But there is no point in having beautiful rugs or fine looking carpet if you don’t take care of. What I mean by take care of it is by and rugs on a regular basis. I’ve been into countless homes where they had beautiful carpet, and it’s really good quality however they haven’t had the carpets steam cleaned on a regular basis and it’s started to fade and look grubby.

This can really bring down the character of the house just by having dirty looking carpet. This is why finding a professional carpet cleaning company that you can trust and build a long-term relationship with is important. Finding a guy who knows what he’s doing (or a girl for that matter) can really make a huge difference to your household. It’s pretty easy these days to find a good company purely by looking at all the good reviews online. When the review system opened up on the Internet it really weeded out the bad companies.

When I’m surfing the net and looking for a particular service, I always check the local directories and Google reviews. You can really decipher what type of person or business you’re going to hire by reading through the reviews of previous customers. That way you won’t make a bad mistake of hiring someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing.

Recently we had a really bad experience with a security door salesman. The sales guy was extremely pushy any also abused my wife over the telephone. Purely for the fact that she wasn’t home when he drop by to quote the job. Now when we went online to check reviews for this company there were two really bad reviews. The reviews were almost identical to our own experience. Now, if we would have checked prior, we could have avoided this company (like the plague).

Carpets are expensive investment so it’s important to keep them clean. For around $30 per room you can have the carpets looking fresh and clean again and generally you won’t need to do them more than twice a year, depending if you have pets or children. Either way, it’s a small investment to make in order to keep your carpets and rugs looking beautiful all year round.
