For a Deep Clean, Hire a Professional Carpet Cleaner

Even if there are no unsightly stains or spots on the carpet of your new home, chances are that the carpet fibers are still harboring some underlying dirt and dust that isn’t visible to the naked eye. When moving in, this is a great time to start fresh. This means removing any dirt, and of course spots or stains, that may be in the carpet fibers. This level of professional cleaning will not only have your carpet looking great, but it will also give you peace of mind knowing that your home is clean after the previous residents have moved out.

Woodard can clean your shower walls, countertops, and backsplashes, too. Dirt and dust can settle in the grout between the tiles and on the natural stone. Similar to dirt settled into carpet fibers, the grout may not look dirty or some of your natural stones may not shine anymore. However, after a professional cleaning, you may discover that there was a significant amount caked in, even changing the color of the grout and hard surfaces.
