Getting Carpet Cleaning Into Gear For Christmas

Getting Carpet Cleaning Into Gear For Christmas

With so many things happening throughout the summer season, it can get to the point where the summer holidays are running into the autumn break and then up shoots Christmas and the new year.  We all like to have folk around over these festive days – nothing better than a crowd round for lunch, followed by games and fun with the children romping around on the floor.   It’s not such fun though when the little romper and his clothese are…

Hotel Cleaning Left Much To Be Desired

Hotel Cleaning Left Much To Be Desired

One of my daughters has been nvited to several weddings this year.  It’s really nice to be wanted and liked enough for these very happy occasions, but the cost on the wallet is rather steep.  Six weddings in one season does rather notch it up to another level.    One of the things that must be taken into account when accepting all these invites is how much will each hotel room be and what will you get for your money.  Two…

Charity Homing Scheme Relies On Professional Cleaning

I was out with a social group on an afternoon jolly  out recently.   Instead of the old bingo and card games in the hall, the lat July meeting is always a visit out.  We attended a very specialist charity site in a tiny wee village near here.   The purpose of the village is to provide shelter, work and retraining for life for several homeless and vulnerable men.   The work they have to do is mixed from essential tasks in the…

Rar Open House Follows Very Rare Clean Through

Out in the country – the real country with hardly any houses between the villages and you have to drive from one field to another, there are some grand houses that really have stood the test of time well.  Apart from the occasional batch of visitors at the height of summer, there are generally very few folk to take much notice of what’s been hapenning in these parts of late!   Well a great surprise hit us all recently when one…

Party Food Mayhem Calls For Professioal Carpet Care

Party Food Mayhem Calls For Professioal Carpet Care

There is quite an extended family attached to the house behind mine.  As everyone is so jolly polite to each other, I’m assuming some are half siblings and step families.  There was a massive party there least month.  Masses of food and drink seemed to be piled high on trestle tables under the gazebos and I was amazed how many folk had managed to squeeze into the back garden.  I heard the aftermath too – much cussing and swearing emitted…

Clean Curtains and Blinds for a Healthy Home

Clean Curtains and Blinds for a Healthy Home

One of the parts of our homes which we often forget to keep clean is our curtains and blinds.  This can be because they are seen as a fixture of the house, rather than a piece of furniture.  Also, because they are often quite large and bulky, it can be difficult to know how to clean them! Curtains can often be washed in normal washing machines, depending on the fabric.  Check if there is a cleaning label on your curtains…
