Who We Are

We have over 25 years of experience in the cleaning industry. Candice Reid, our editor and top contributor, is a homemaker, retired business owner, and our cleaning expert. She decided to create Carpet Obsession as a way to give consumers an in-depth look at how the leading cleaning appliances really work, while educating them on the features that really matter.

Tired of wasting money on appliances that don’t work, we teamed up to help our site visitors find the products that deliver the cleaning power they need.

So, we’ve made it our mission to test the leading models on the market, to give our site visitors unbiased reviews of how each appliance really performs and whether or not each model offers the type of cleaning power the manufacturer claims it does.

Product Testers

Our team of product testers strive to give you the truth, while educating you on what features really matter based on appliance type, to show you how to choose a product that will make a difference in your home, whether you have pets, allergies, or you want a cleaning appliance that can really help you get a handle on the mess at home.

At Carpet Obsession, we’re here to help you keep a cleaner home.
