Applying a protectant to carpets and upholstery will protect them from run-ins with spills, stains, and milk-chocolate pants. Seal in carpet quality with today's Groupon: for $75, you get $150 worth of carpet, floor, or upholstery cleaning services from Regency Carpet and Floor Care. For homes located outside of Coweta, Fayette, Henry, and Spalding counties, a $75 travel fee applies.
The floor-fresheners at Regency Carpet and Floor Care relieve tiles and textiles of the dirt, odors, and contaminants left behind by daily traffic and pollution. During a 10-step carpet cleaning ($150–$190 for 500 sq. ft.), the hot hands of pressurized, truck-mounted steam-cleaning equipment massage tired carpets into sanitized bliss without saturating carpet backing, subflooring, or underground lairs. Those with animals can opt for the pet-odor-control treatment ($45/gallon of solution), in which carpet cleaners sniff out soiled spots with detection equipment before spraying suspect areas down with an oxidizing, bacteria-chewing solution. The dirt whispering extends to tile and grout ($1–$1.25/sq. ft.) as well as upholstery ($45–$105), taming even the most temperamental fabrics. Coat grabby grout with a stain-resistant sealant, or dress carpets and upholstery with a layer of 3M Scotchgard to protect against future spills and stains.
