Get your Home Clean with Stanley Steemer for the Holidays ( Review & Give Away)

If you’re a reader of mine you probably know one of my biggest complaints is my gross carpeting. It seems like I am wishing out loud for hardwoods more often than not.  Between the dogs and the kids, keeping the carpets clean is a battle I can’t win. If there is one thing that bothers me above anything else is dirty carpets and dirty walls. To me the whole house can be spic and span, but if the walls or carpets are dirty, the house still looks blah!

I’m usually thrilled for the holidays to be upon us but this year I have been dreading their arrival for one reason, embarrassment. Yup, I am embarrassed for my holiday company to see my dirty rugs. As you may have seen in some previous posts I have been sharing with your some DIY home improvements for the holidays and things have been moving along quite well, but I still had the issue of my carpets. That is until Stanley Steemer came along and turned my frown upside-down! I got a chance to sample their cleaning services just in time for the holidays –yay!

Stanley Steemer has over 60 years experience as the dirt authority, Stanley Steemer cleaning experts are certified to remove more than 98 percent of dry soil from floors – a rate significantly higher than self-cleaning methods, which obviously weren't working for me. Their water extraction process provides a deep-down clean, I can't achieve on my own.

 Now the hardest part of this post is going to be showing you all my before pictures, but this is really a visual review that you need to see, so here it goes… gulp!

Muddy paw prints


And more dirty prints

Can't forget the dogs favorite pee spot!
Pretty gross, I know.


Setting up a cleaning with Stanley Steemer was simple and I was able to schedule right online. I asked for a cleaning, of course, with protection to try and make it easier to clean the mud from the dogs paws in the future, and of course a deodorizing for the pet mess. 

They arrived on Saturday in a 4 hour window and got straight to work. We had to remove any electronics and knick knacks but they took care of moving everything else. The worker did warn me that with my carpets being so bad, he might not be able to get everything out, which I under stood completely. It only took about 15 minutes for the living room and hall to be complete and Stanley Steemer to be on their way.






So what do you think?

Much better, right! There was one spot they couldn’t remove, but overall it looked 100% better. After it dried it looked a little more dingy, but with how messy the rug was I thought it looked beautiful compared with the before. Oh, and the house smelled great. My husband thought I was crazy because I actually got down on my hands and knees to smell the carpet - something I wouldn't have dared do before.

Keep your home clean for the holidays with Stanley Steemer, who also want to make sure we all can maintain the a cleaner, healthier home, by offering these holiday tips for you and I:

With the holidays come the house guests

Reduce the amount of dirt and mud that may get tracked into your home by using indoor and outdoor entrance mats.

Pickup in a flash

Why deny the inevitable? At some point this season you’ll deal with red wine, gravy, pine needles or candle wax drippings on the carpet. Remember to act quickly to clean up any spills or stains; consider keeping a professional spot remover handy at all time or use items commonly found around the home such as white vinegar and baking soda.


Dirt is the ultimate scrooge

Keep up with the high traffic areas in the home, especially during entertaining season, by vacuuming them two to three times a week and the rest of your carpets at least once a week.

Find Stanley Steemer promotions and schedule your own cleaning just in time for the holidays at www.stanleysteemer.com. And don't forget they do more than just carpets. Stanley Steemer’s expertise extends to hardwood, tile, air ducts, water damage restoration, and more!
