Why It's Important to Have a Pro Clean Your Carpet

Why It’s Important to Have a Pro Clean Your Carpet

Congratulations!  You purchased the car of your dreams!

Now let’s fast forward 3 years and all of a sudden your engine is acting funny.  It’s misfiring, running rough, making a ticking noise. So you take it to the service station inside the dealership. They take a look at it and start to do a tuneup to diagnose the problem. When they undo the oil plug, it pours out thick, black sewage.

The service tech comes up to you and asks, “When was the last time you had your oil changed?”

You respond, “Oil changed?  Why would I do that?”

The service tech shakes their head and says, “Without an oil change it breaks down after 10,000 miles and doesn’t lubricate the pistons properly.  We have to replace your engine.  Oh, and by the way, you’ll have to pay the whole bill because you did not change the oil when you were supposed to.”

Many people don’t realize that there are many other investments in our lives that require regular maintenance. Whether it’s your lawnmower, your oven, or your carpet.

Yes, your carpet needs regular maintenance for it to properly perform up to its potential. Like a car, it does have wear and tear that happens on a regular basis.  It takes abuse from dirt, spills, pets, and children.

Most carpet brands feature an excellent warranty that is provided to you by the manufacturer.  The companies do stand by these warranties under one condition… that you stand by your end of the bargain.  Just like an oil change for a car, a carpet needs to be cleaned  every 18 months, which is considered the industry standard.  Otherwise, the warranty could be voided.


Nebraska Furniture Mart has partnered with a leading national provider of specialty insurance, Fortegra, to help with keeping your warranties in effect.

The Fortegra Total Service Premium Plan provides you with 2 professional carpet cleanings and 2 stain removal treatments over a 3 year period.  If the stain is unable to be removed to your satisfaction, they contribute $500 toward the replacement and $300 towards the labor.

It will add peace of mind to your new investment, protect your warranty, and extend the life of your carpet. Your friends might even ask if you just got new carpet again!
