(Over 65% Of The Replacement Cost Shown Above)

Important Note: With proper maintenance your carpet can often stay looking good for 90% of the total time it’s in service. However, without proper maintenance it would be typical for the carpet to stay looking good for only 30% of the time it’s in service. This means the aesthetic life of your carpet can usually double and sometimes triple with the implementation of a sound preventative maintenance program
