Your Rug Deserves Some Pampering

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

DID YOU KNOW that a valuable rug in your home is virtually crying out for some comfort? When people start installing more hard floors in homes, the first thing many of them do is cover those floors with soft area rugs. Some of these rugs cost thousands of dollars, and they need their own special protection. A rug pad designed and sized specially for your area rug (or rugs, if you are fortunate enough to have several in your home) is the protection they need and deserve. Why go with […]

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

DID YOU KNOW that the devastation of spilling something like grape juice, cordial and other fruit drinks doesn’t have to be that… devastating? So you have kids, grandkids, or some other kids come over, and they want something to drink. They surely don’t want water from the tap. That’s pretty boring stuff. They want something fruity, sweet, and with lots of colour. Like deep blues, or reds. You know, the stuff that can really stain a carpet or piece of furniture. And the inevitable occurs. The kids enjoy what you give them, […]

Often under specified and misunderstood is a commercial office vacuuming program. If most of the soil in the carpet can be removed by vacuuming, whose responsibility is it to remove that soil?

Cleaning Wool Carpet and Rug: Good News? Or Baaaad?

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

DID YOU KNOW that choosing a wool carpet or rug for your home is both good news… and sometimes bad? The good news is choosing wool, which is a high quality fiber but not really that popular because of the higher price, means your carpet or rug will last longer, look better and retain value. The bad news is choosing wool means you won’t see as much dirt on it, and so you may not vacuum or clean it that often — which means your nice, wool carpet or rug […]

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

It happens all the time in a typical household. You grab a paper towel — or two, or three — to wipe up a mess when something is spilled. That’s what paper towels are for, right? But something else you might have experienced using paper towels is for polishing your nice granite countertop, rubbing and scrubbing but still seeing streaks on the surface. You keep going until you have exhausted not only your stock of paper towels, but your own energy as well. And what about the mirrors and windows […]
