NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — To celebrate pets and educate consumers on the health risks associated with pet dander and urine in the home, Chem-Dry, the world’s largest carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning service, has launched its newest promotion, the “Paw-Parazzi” Giveaway! The Facebook photo-sharing contest encourages pet lovers to share a funny or unique photo of their pet in their favorite spot in the home along with an explanation of why a professional carpet and upholstery cleaning is important in eliminating bacteria and odors from pet accidents and maintaining a healthy home.
