Carpets, like dogs, often hide under the dining-room table and let out audible whimpers when threatened with bath time. Make your carpets howl like the beasts they are with today's Groupon: for $60, you get $120 worth of tile-, carpet-, or upholstery-cleaning services from 1-800-CleanCarpets.com.
Although its name spotlights its carpet-cleaning capabilities, 1-800-CleanCarpets.com offers a comprehensive range of immaculatarian services. Soiled seats can be suitably spruced with a round of upholstery cleaning (prices range from $79.95 for sofas to $49.95 for chairs), eliminating the need to clumsily cover stains with throw pillows and lazy cats. For home owners fretting over filthy feet, carpet cleaning (roughly $120 for 600 square feet, plus $20 per room for Scotchgard protection) starts with seasoned professionals sizing up the damage and mapping out a complete estimate, a pre-clean ritual that gives peaceful dirt particles a chance to voluntarily evacuate to neighboring houses. Once the work begins, carpets can be restored to shipshape condition in less than a day, leaving young grape-juice artists with a newly pristine canvas for their living-room impressionism. Tile cleaning is also available, helping un-grime grout and restore its naturally eye-pleasing hue.
