Even if you are good at keeping your carpet clean yourself, a regular steam-cleaning has its benefits.  Steam cleaning your carpet cleans it more thoroughly than many other methods, like cleaning by hand.  It also kills bacteria that are residing in the carpet fibers.  This will eliminate carpet odors.


Do not suffer from dirty carpets anymore.  Regardless of how damaged it is, you can avoid replacing the carpet entirely by getting it cleaned.  Use the advice in this article, and hire a professional to clean your carpet, not replace it.
