    "My thanks to Chris and Damon for their nice work on my house. They worked hard, got things done in the time they had predicted, and were polite and professional. Their work was very good- the living room ceiling looks fabulous, as there was quite a bit of water damage before. I am very pleased with the results, exactly what I wanted. Thanks so much."

  • Bet You Never Thought To Clean Your Pillows…Well You Should! Here Are Some Tips

    I never even considered this before, but cleaning your pillows apparently is a very under-rated and healthy thing to do. I always thought cleaning the cases was the only thing to do. However, on this somewhat warmer Saturday, try adding this job to the weekly cleaning list.

    If You Have Down and Fiberfill Pillows...
    Good news! You can wash these kinds of pillows in your washer. For best results, we recommend washing two pillows at a time (to help keep the washer balanced) and using a front or top-loading machine without an agitator.

    Unfortunately, you can't put foam pillows in the washing machine, but if there's a removable cover, you can wash that according to the care instructions on the tag. To remove dust from a foam pillow, vacuum both sides with your vacuum's upholstery tool. If possible, dial down the suction level to make the job a bit easier to do. Or, tumble the pillow in the dryer on the no heat or air-only cycle for 20 minutes. Spot-clean any soiled areas with a cloth dipped in a mild sudsy solution. Rinse with a damp cloth. Allow the pillow to air dry completely before putting it back on the bed.
