I'm all over the map today with deals from carpet cleaning to milk. Let's start with a good deal offered by the Strib on carpet cleaning. A lot of carpet cleaners offer similar deals, but few rate as highly as CarpetClean. For $85.50 (regularly $171) you get three areas cleaned. CarpetClean is check rated for superior quality and reasonable prices by Twin Cities Consumers' Checkbook. In fact, 91 percent of CC's customers surveyed rated the company's performance "superior." The deal runs through Sunday, and the cleaning must be completed by Nov. 30. This is a good time of year to schedule a carpet cleaning when the humidity is lower and carpets dry faster.
