We all love our pets, but do you know what they bring into your home?

Saliva:  A dog has at Least 20 species of bacteria in its mouth. All of these bacteria are left behind when your pet slobbers on your upholstery, rugs and carpets.

Pet waste:  There are 20 million fecal coliform bacteria in a single gram of pet waste - urine or feces!  These bacteria remain on carpets and rugs even after you clean up the waste.                                             

Dander:  An estimated 30 million Americans are allergic to animals with pet dander being the main cause!  Simply vacuuming may not get rid of all of the allergens.

Dirt:  Studies show that dirt carries many different forms of bacteria and a square foot of carpet can harbor up to 1 pound of dirt!  Our cleaning system will deep clean your carpets and rugs, removing the places bacteria can hide.

The EPA recommends that homes with pets have their rugs and carpets professionally cleaned every 3 to 6 months for the most effective cleaning and removal of pet hair, odors, dander, and dirt or soil.
