SOA Service Providers: Superior Cleaning And Service
To maintain the peak performance and beauty of carpet, the Carpet and Rug Institute recommends periodic professional cleaning. The Carpet and Rug Institute also recommends the use of Seal of Approval products, and is proud to recognize those service providers who utilize Seal of Approval products.
Carpet cleaning professionals who use Seal of Approval solutions in conjunction with Seal of Approval equipment are eligible to be recognized as Seal of Approval service providers.
Hiring Seal of Approval service providers is the best way to ensure that your carpet is being cleaned with quality products. Not all carpet cleaning products clean equally well and some may even damage carpet fibers. Using Seal of Approval service providers also is the best way to make sure your residential or commercial carpet warranties are being met since many major carpet manufacturers require or strongly recommend the use of Seal of Approval products.
