Seasonal Cleaning Tip…
The most common holiday accident we hear about is spilled candle wax. Fortunately, candle wax is something you may be able to remove yourself. Use a spoon or dull knife to carefully scrape off as much excess wax as possible. Place a clean plain (print free) brown paper bag over the wax spill on the carpet or upholstery. Place the low dry heated iron on top of the bag. The heat from the iron will start to melt the wax and it will wick up into the paper bag. As the paper bag absorbs the wax, rotate it to clean areas and continue to apply the iron’s low heat until all the wax is absorbed … Read More »

Indoor Air Quality
What I once assumed safe and environmental friendly – just isn’t so. A large portion of day to day cleaners are filled with toxins. Currently there is no universal recognized definition for “cleaning”. With this in mind the public’s awareness of effective cleaning has been hampered. Ask ten people, “What is clean?” and the results may be 10 different definitions for clean. Effective cleaning comes down eliminating harmful germs, bacteria and microorganisms, while the use of environmentally preferable cleaning products is a secondary goal. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and … Read More »
Clean, Healthy Indoor Air

How serious is this issue around air quality and should we really be concerned?? My background has always been in cleaning – from private homes to commercial buildings, carpet cleaning, tile and grout cleaning, upholstery cleaning, not to mention parking lot sweeping. I’ve seen dirt on many different areanas. I think like most people we assume the hype about indoor air quality was all a marketing gimic and it fit the build.

Upholstery Cleaning Tips
What once was the PERFECT piece of furniture that totally set the stage, no longer fills its purpose. Reality set- in as well as the oil from the dogs coat as he rubs along the edge, or the cat hair that clings and impregnates the very fibers, and don’t forget the kids, they’ve left their permanent mark also. Can a home be furnished with family and pet friendly fibers? – you BET. Today’s fibers are more resilient and sturdier then ever. Most fabrics used for upholstery come treated with fabric protector. Not the silver bullet against spills BUT certainly it allows us the … Read More »
