Welcome to Daily Kibble's 2011 Holiday Gift Guide
The Dirty Truth About Keeping Carpets Clean
When dirty paws, the occasional upset tummy, and outdoor precipitation get tracked in to your home (on guests’ shoes, or Fido’s paws), the carpet can collect dirt deep down that won’t be removed by vacuuming alone. According to BISSELL’s research, there can be as much as one pound of dirt per square foot in your carpet before it’s even noticed! Yikes! BISSELL’s Lift-Off® Deep Cleaner can rescue your carpets from the mess. With two machines in one, it lets you clean large carpeted areas with the full-size upright cleaner, and then clean harder-to-reach areas like stairs, car interiors, and upholstered furniture with the Lift-Off, portable spot cleaner. With a built-in water heater, dual rotation power brushes, and Surround Suction design (for edge to edge suction), your carpets will be fresh and clean once again.
Share your carpet and upholstery dirty secrets on BISSELL’s Facebook page before December 2, 2011, and you might WIN a Lift-Off® Deep Cleaner for yourself and five friends or family members, as well as a $2500 gift card and a suite of BISSELL Lift-Off products!
