What You'll Get
A dirty rug is like a guilty conscience—it's always nagging you from the background, and it prevents you from eating off the floor in peace. Expunge lingering crud from your rug with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 toward area-rug and carpet cleaning from Premium Carpet Care on East Olive Road. Rugs can be dropped off between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Premium Carpet Care boasts an Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification and a level of expertise that has it treating rugs worth more than $25,000. The careful cleaners meticulously spruce up rollable flooring with professional rug-cleaning services, welcoming weary rugs made of fine wool, silk, cotton, nylon, and olefin, as well as Persian, Oriental, and handmade rugs. The most odiferous offenders are given a full-service cleaning ($1.50–$4 per sq. ft.)—at the shop, they're first tested for color fastness, then introduced to the RugBadger, which removes all the dry soil that regular vacuums can't hoover up.
Then, like a cherished pet, the rug is gently caressed with soft brushes to loosen any remaining dirt and dust before it slips into a neutral pH-cleaning bath. After its fringes are hand-brushed and washed, the rug is sent to a dehumidified room where a turbo blow dry soaks up any excess moisture.
Rugs that aren't as seriously soiled can get the light-cleaning service ($0.75–$1 per sq. ft.), which is administered either at home or in the shop and consists of the standard pretest, a prespray with an impartial pH cleaning, and a spritz of warm solution that leaves your mobile carpet mostly dry and ready for flying. Rug cleaning usually takes about a week; deodorizing treatments are available for rugs that have become a dog's best friend ($1–$2, depending on severity of smell), and fabric protection can be added at 50% of the total cleaning cost. This Groupon's value can also be applied to Premium Carpet Care's carpet-cleaning services, which start at $85 for an in-home visit. That price covers 250 square feet of grime-removal, with an additional charge of $.24-$.44 per additional square foot, depending on the carpet's material, condition, and proximity to solar flares. Call ahead for a personalized rate estimate. Today's Groupon can also be redeemed for tile and grout cleaning and upholstery cleaning services.
