A clean, stain-free carpet has a bigger impact on getting your home sold than you might think.

According to Bankrate.com, the number one turnoff for buyers when they enter a home is a lack of overall cleanliness, especially the carpeting. Having your carpets professionally cleaned is a simple and inexpensive way to improve buyer appeal and help your home sell quickly for the price you are asking. Here’s why:
Spots. Many homebuyers cannot look past a spots on the carpet. It may raise unwarranted red flags about the overall cleanliness of the home. Professional carpet cleaning can often remove stubborn spots.
Dirt. A professional deep cleaning will bring out the color and like-new beauty of your carpets by extracting debris and grime that gets trapped deep within the fibers. Carpets that look brand new create a positive first impression.
Odors. Carpeting acts like a large filter that traps all kinds of odors, but especially pet odors, which can be a deal-breaker for many homebuyers. Professional carpet cleaning leaves your carpet smelling clean and fresh.
Allergens. Eliminating dust, dirt, allergens, and other pollutants from your carpet is especially important for potential buyers with allergies or sensitivity to dust particles. If they walk through the front door and begin to sneeze or get watery eyes, they’re likely to turn around and leave. Professional carpet cleaning will resolve this problem.
If you are selling your home, don’t let your carpets become a deal-breaker.
