    Thank you for sending such hard working, responsible and meticulous men to do the painting in our house. The crew worked hard and well as a team to complete all of the assigned tasks. Eric's presence was also helpful in making sure we had the right colors, checking on progress and communicating between all involved. We especially appreciated their prompt arrivals, attention to details, clean-up, and consideration of our needs, which included putting up with our big, friendly and nosy lab.

  • Tips For Cleaning Those Carpets

    [caption id="attachment_5337" align="alignleft" width="228" caption="Cleaning The Carpets"]Cleaning[/caption]

    With the dogs running in and out of the house, people spilling food, and wet or muddy boots walking through, your carpets are going to be in need of some cleaning. Here are some tips, courtesy of E-How:

    1. Purchase or rent a wet-cleaner machine also known as a steamer, at a hardware or grocery store. When you rent a machine, the necessary cleaning products are usually included or can be purchased at the rental store.

    2. Vacuum the floor thoroughly.

    3. Spray heavily soiled areas with prespray or traffic-lane cleaner. For really dirty areas, increase the amount of prespray used instead of increasing the amount of carpet shampoo.

    4. Fill the machine's hose or reservoir with hot tap water.

    5. Use the machine and carpet shampoo according to the steamer manufacturer's instructions.

    6. Maximize the amount of water removed from the carpet by making a water-extraction pass with the water spray on, and then again with the spray off. Test the carpet with your hand. If your hand comes away with water droplets, extract again with the spray off; if your hand comes away damp and the carpet feels wrung out, you have extracted correctly.
