Professional Carpet and Floor Cleaning Will Wash Away the Remnants of Summer

Professional Carpet and Floor Cleaning Will Wash Away the Remnants of Summer

The calendar has turned to September and the kids are back in school. For the first time in a long time, the house is going to be empty and quiet for several hours a day. Sounds like a good time to have your carpets and flooring professionally cleaned!

“When you have kids and they have friends over all summer long, your flooring throughout the house can take a real beating,” said Edmund Bedient, owner of Clear Choice Cleaning Services in West Seneca and the father of five active children. “Add a pet or pets into the mix and you’re only adding to the problem. So take advantage of the school days and have your carpets and floors professionally cleaned, especially with the holidays right around the corner!”

A sparkling clean home is also extremely important if you are considering putting your house on the market at any time in the near future.
