If any of these things are applicable to you then listen up. While most homes can be cleaned or freshened up by you, there are times where it is best to bring in the professional. 80% of home owners say that the cleanliness of a home determined by how clean their floors are yet only 15% have their carpets cleaned yearly. So I ask you again, how clean is your home?

Most home remedies can mask or provide a temporary solution to the issue however they will come back. It does not eliminate the hazard and so it remains while you think the problem has been solved.
