Your Home Probably Isn’t Clean!
Everyone knows that coming home to a clean home is more restful than a messy home, but sometimes we neglect to look past surface clutter to the dirt and grime that is so easy to ignore. For example, the EPA recommends that carpets be deep cleaned at least every six months, but how many of us deep clean carpets even once a year? We know we should, around 84% of Americans believe that having a clean carpet is necessity in a clean home, but still around 22% of Americans believe that their carpets are even dirtier than the toilet seat. After all, a toilet seat is much easier to clean.
