First things first: Most other carpet cleaning companies charge less. But Tim Petzold, the sole proprietor and operator of Aegis, truly makes it worth the money. He uses the hot water-extraction method of cleaning (not shampoo), which leaves carpet less prone to re-attracting dirt. He leaves a bottle of spot remover for the customer. He even keeps his knowledge of carpet and upholstery care continually updated! Besides, you gotta love a guy who says in his print ads to call him anytime, even in the evenings: "I'm probably reading some exciting report on pet urine."
