Today's Groupon is a welcome sight for any eco-eye: $40 for two rooms of carpet cleaning from environmentally friendly cleaning company Absolute Carpet Care (a $85 value). Remove coffee stains, beach-sand stains, and reindeer cud in about 15 minutes per room without harming the overly sensitive earth.
Absolute Carpet Care uses a green cleaning system to extract deeply embedded dirt, oil, crud, gunk, funk, junk, crunk, and water-borne soil from your filthy carpet fibers without using harsh solvents, shampoos, or noxious steam. By relaxing the surface tensions in the carpet fibers, the high-speed spinning accumulators suck up all but the most diabolical stains, while a dash of heat speeds up the dry time from days to an hour. Absolute's method also eliminates the risk of wicking (dirt rising to the surface), so your carpet won't revert back to its old disgusting self. Best of all, Absolute Carpet Care comes to you, so instead of peeling off your carpet, or airlifting your house, just check the map to make sure you are inside their service boundaries.
If you've been decorating your house to match the mottled brown that you assume is your carpet color, Absolute Carpet Care will help you realize your error and answer any questions you might have, including "How do you make candles?," "You're not my mom, are you?," and "I know that's a bowl of jelly."
Note: Absolute Carpet Cleaning considers a standard room to be 150 sqft., larger rooms will be calculated as 2.

Your Carpeting, Brought to You by TV
Home carpeting was long associated with European aristocracy until it first gained acceptance from American homes thanks to the ground-breaking television program All In The Family, starring Carroll O’Conner as lovable bigot Archie Bunker. The show broke numerous taboos involving racism, homophobia, and floor coverings. The Bunkers were the first TV family to proudly display a carpeted floor, and carpets slowly started making their way into our homes.
The Bunkers’ carpets, like their opinions on the delicate social issues of the day, were no mere set dressing, and often became the focus of popular episodes. For instance, more Americans watched the 1978 episode “My Carpet For My Country,” in which Meathead tries to stop the Vietnam War, than were alive at the time. Thanks to All In The Family, carpets today are just as common in homes as the sound of a flushing toilet on network TV.
