Like staring into a pond or reading the phone book, following muddy footsteps on the living-room carpet can help you find yourself. Clean up after this pivotal moment with today's Groupon: for $99, you get carpet cleaning for three rooms—up to 600 square feet total—from Zipco (a $199 value).
Zipco’s certified filth-fighters employ the latest technology and carpet-safe cleaning products to restore sullied floor hairs to their former glory. Value carpet-cleaning services begin with a pre-inspection that identifies stains and high-traffic areas before a HEPA-filter vacuum rakes foot prairies, freeing them of soil accumulated during rugby-team sleepovers. Then, technicians pre-spot and precondition floors with natural solutions and run a hot-water, high-pressure, low-volume extractor to separate matted fibers and allow detergents to saturate carpets and uproot entrenched dirt. Following that, fabric softener neutralizes cleaning-product residues and a high-velocity air mover puffs across damp floors to minimize drying time. Carpet-scrubbers finish up with a postinspection, willing to redo services to ensure customer satisfaction and successful removal of stains and contaminants that transformed the family hamster into Godzilla.
