- Looks Aren't
carpeting is a technological marvel. It is designed to hide dirt and
boy, does it do a good job! You can pour a pound of potting soil in one
square foot of a quality nylon carpet, rub it in, an IT WILL DISAPPEAR!
That means all of the junk (dander, fumes, pollutants, germs, bacteria,
fleas, etc.) that comes into your house ends up safely hidden in your
Dirt, Sand, and
Grit are Killing it!
would happen if you rubbed sandpaper all over that beautiful clear coat
paint on your car.... what a disaster that would be! Well, each day I
pull pounds of gritty soil out of the base of people's carpets. It's in
yours too! And this gritty soil works on your carpet just like
sandpaper: it scratches the carpet fibers and dulls its appearance.
This is the #1 cause of wear.

of water, soaps and soils in your carpet... in fact it will leave

you have a big, bad spill; etc.... If you do have to use one, though,
we suggest using very hot water only, maybe with a bit of
vinegar added, and if you must - try cutting the detergent
in half and spraying it on ahead of time with a trigger sprayer.

Warranty: Are You Working Without A Net?
Here's what happens
- You wait to long to clean your
- You think you can do it
VOID YOUR WARRANTY! If you have any kind of problem with
you're on your own and the safety of your warranty is gone. The
manufacturer won't even talk to you without proof that you have had it
professionally cleaned at least one time per year (they recommend more

longer you wait to clean your carpet, the more soil becomes permanent.
It locks onto the fibers, and through a process called "oxidation", the
