 The carpet in a home is a significant investment that may be hard to keep clean. There are pet accidents, spilled drinks, stains, and dirt. High-traffic areas look dingy and become dirty quickly.

 Wall-to-wall carpet in a home can be both a blessing and a curse. Carpet creates warmth and ambiance. It gives freedom to roam the room sockless. Tile and wood floors have an effect that visually opens a room, making it seem larger than it is. Carpets give a room a vibrant life and increase the comfort level, particularly on cold, winter days. They will quickly lose their charm if not given regular attention and maintenance. Like anything of value, you get more use out of something that is properly maintained. When it comes to rugs, the common recommendation is to use a professional service like Agara Rug Cleaning NYC, They have the know-how and facilities to keep your rugs in great shape.
