    "I am writing to compliment your employees on a job well done. Bob was very responsive in returning phone calls from the initial contact we made to get preliminary estimates to finish our basement. The foreman was at our house almost every day for two-and-a-half weeks. His work was excellent. He finished everything on or ahead of schedule, left all of the work areas clean, and finished all of the small details to complete the job entirely. Due to the timeliness and quality of their work, we were able to enjoy our finished basement prior to the Thanksgiving holiday as promised."

  • Clean Your Oven The Right Way



    Ovens are one of the most used tools in your home. Mrs. Clean is here to give us some tips and advice when it comes to keeping your oven clean.

    You know the signs... Black smoke and the stench of burned food when you are baking.

    Burned sugars, like those from baking pies and such are the worst, both in the awful smell and in the difficulty to remove.

    All the baked-on black stuff is called carbon and it can be hard to remove. Here's the best cleaning tips that I know of to get your oven clean.

    Safety Precautions:

    Oven cleaners are, by nature, quite harsh. If you’re going to clean your oven, always wear a strong pair of rubber gloves. When spraying caustic chemicals, eye protection is a must. Avoid breathing oven cleaner fumes. Your body will thank you later!

    An important note: if you have a greasy or extra large spill in your oven, wipe as much of the grease out as possible before attempting to clean the oven with chemicals or even the self clean option.

    Extra large pieces of food and debris should removed before cleaning the oven. Both self cleaning and spray on oven cleaners will be able to do a much better job for you.

    The self-clean feature raises the temperature to extremely high levels that can start a grease fire even without a flame. Not to mention a large amount of foul-smelling smoke from the burning grease.

    If your oven bottom is completely covered in food waste and grease, the cleaning chemicals will not be able to penetrate all the way through.
