My last blog compared carpet cleaning chemicals to artificial sweeter. This article I had to share so that you can see the chemical used every day in the name Beauty.

You would find this documented in your warranty information when you buy your carpet. (Most of us never ask for it and as a result never read it. We trust our sales person.) Manufactures definition of deep clean is almost always hot water extraction. (Aka; steam clean) So let’s compare the average chemical used when Steam Cleaning to what’s in our food supply.
