EPA Recommended Cleaning Guidelines

As carpet cleaners in Lewistown, Pennsylvania we are often asked the question “How often do I need to have my carpet cleaned to keep my indoor air quality up to par?” We have been in business here in Lewistown, Pennsylvania for almost thirty years, and we have built our business through honest communication with our customers. When we are asked to respond to questions about the recommended carpet cleaning frequency, we don’t guess or tell you that you need to have your carpet cleaned more often that you really need to. We simply refer to the Environmental Protection Agency’s guidelines.
