    My husband and I are extremely pleased with Reilly! You team, Bruce and David, are masters. They came each day when they said they would and worked diligently, and I was pleasantly surprised that they were quiet and didn't listen to radios. Bruce is a jewel; he was so patient with me and explained answers to all of my questions."

  • 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.
