Control Carpet Odors Your carpet acts like a giant filter, trapping dirt, dander, hair, and other airborne particles in your home. Unfortunately, your carpet can also trap odors, which is why regular cleanings are so important. In between regular cleanings, here’s how you can do a little odor control at home: Cigarette/Cigar: Tobacco odors are extremely hard to remove, so the best course of action is to keep smoke outside. You cannot keep your carpet deodorized if someone keeps blowing smoke in your home. Burned Food/General Smoke: Sprinkle a little baking soda over the carpet. Use a corn straw broom to gently brush the baking soda into the nap of the carpet. Leave it overnight. Vacuum thoroughly the next morning. Pet Odors: Try to clean up any pet messes (urine, feces, vomit) as quickly as possible. Use a little bit of dish soap and water and a clean white cloth to gently blot and remove as much of the substance as possible. Once the carpet is dry, sprinkle some baking soda over the area, let it sit overnight, and vacuum thoroughly the next day

And Why You Should Too

While many families have packed calendars, getting the carpets cleaned before the kids go back to school is really a great idea. I don’t know about you, but I have trouble fitting things into the schedule every summer, much less getting to those much needed cleaning projects. But, this is one thing I insist on.

One of my main reasons is that summertime can bring out those pet odors . Not to mention that the heat is just the kind of thing that bacteria likes- causing the smell to become unbearable, fast. The folks I use have even told me about how pet stains can get into the carpet, then the padding and right into the flooring if left for too long.

The next thing you know, you could be paying for someone to come out and repair the floor. That in itself is enough to make me want to look into carpet cleaning in Plano, TX. After all, the store bought cleaners work for a short time and then you are looking for it again because really it just masks the problem. Those problems can be taken care of with the odor neutralization.

Stains can also get worse with the heat because they can practically get baked into the carpet. So unless you were planning on decorating around that stain on the living room floor, you best get to it right away. Even just a few little stains can make the rug look filthy.

My biggest reason though is all of the extra dirt. It seems like it comes from everywhere. You would think there were dust storms in every corner of the room. When that extra dirt gets walked on it grinds into the carpet. Sometimes you don’t realize how dingy it has gotten until you get it cleaned and see the huge difference it makes.

It might seem like it takes a long time for the carpets to dry properly and you don’t want wait forever to let the kids go galloping through the house again. But really it makes more sense to do it in the hot summer months when everything is going to dry much faster. Also, you won’t be disturbing the kids later on when they should be doing their homework.

When you chose a company like Jericho Cleaning Services to do your carpet cleaning in Plano, TX, you have the assurance that they will care for both the health of your family and the appearance of your home. The process will be efficient and the carpet will dry quickly.

So seriously, do something to help your family get ready for the summer to be over and get your carpets cleaned this summer. It’s healthy for your family and pets. And it will feel good during the rush of school days to feel like one more thing is done and out of the way. Trust me, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.

It will be time for the kids to head back to school before you know it. Now is the time to take advantage of the opportunity to teach them skills that will help them this year and throughout their lifetime. Most of us keep a list of things we need to get done this year, month, week, day and sometimes hour- often all in our head! For your child (and sometimes us) putting it on paper and into practice helps to see the time and planning needed to get tasks done.

Teach them to keep a Calendar

One of the first introductions should be to time. Have them keep a calendar with daily tasks, chores, assignments, appointments and due dates listed out. Incorporate a to-do list either on the calendar or next to it.

Do the List

The best introduction to a to-do list is to make one with boxes for them to check off things as they get them done. There can be a lot of motivation behind the physical act of checking off the box and feeling that sense of accomplishment.

See What Worked

Keeping track of what needed to be done and what actually got done will help them see what needed to be done first to make everything happen the way it is supposed to. Don’t fret if this does not work the first time. It would be wonderful if something got missed. That experience would teach them to prioritize and how to rearrange things to make something work after the first attempt failed.

Journal It

If they are having trouble completing the tasks on a daily basis it might become necessary to create a time journal so that they can see how they are spending it and where it gets wasted.

On to Bigger Things

This will be crucial because the next step will be to plan for bigger projects in advance. This could be anything from getting their ideas prepared for an in-class presentation to figuring out a better way to organize their desk.

You want to show them how to list the steps that need to be taken along with problems that might come up or any special ideas they want to make sure to include. This breakdown will help them see a larger project not as an insurmountable obstacle but a group of smaller steps that will result in a great accomplishment when complete.

Once they have tackled a project like organizing their desk. It will be easier for them to see how their room could be organized to the way they would feel most comfortable keeping up with things.

When Needed: Ask for Help

One of the best ways to show them what can be done in a short period of time with the proper method is to have it modeled for them. This might be an ideal time to see if Jericho Cleaning Services could offer a hand to give the room a fresh start and show your child what is possible when you give a little attention to everything from top to bottom.

The Holidays are not as far off as you might think. Things just keep creeping up in my household. Before we know it things will finally start cooling off a bit and reminding us that it is time to start getting ready for having guests over.

There are just so many reasons to hire a professional to clean your windows. When you look at them you see right away why it just makes sense. My mother-in-law comes over every year and I swear she keeps a white glove tucked in her back pocket. If there is dirt somewhere- she will find it. Well she has not said a peep about my windows for three years straight and I owe that to getting them done.

If you don’t agree with me after thinking it over than go ahead and get out your spray and squeegee and rags and pail of water or however you happen to do it and knock yourself out. But first consider my reasons.

·      Time:

There is so much to do to get ready for the holidays. You have decorations to get out, people to track down, contacts to make and meals to prepare. Cleaning windows so that they really look good is time consuming, and I don’t really have that kind of time just floating around. Do you?

·      Space:

Now you may be wondering what space has to do with doing windows. Well, to get them as clean as the folks at Jericho Cleaning Services would be getting them, I would have to keep a whole closet full of supplies. And honestly, I really don’t have that much passion for cleaning all of those little grooves and such. Which will bring me to the next reason:

·      Energy:

Cleaning windows requires getting into the track, wiping off bird poo and sticky insects, caked on dirt and spider webs. None of these are my favorite ways to use my energy. Whenever I have house cleaning in Parker, I like the way I get to either relax or focus on other things because I know I can devote my own energy to something that really needs my attention.

·      Price:

Sometimes we like to consider how much our time is worth. When I found out maid cleaning in Parker could be so affordable, windows were one of the first things I asked about.

Attention:

Speaking of attention, that is exactly my very best reason for getting someone else to do my windows. This is what they are good at; they do them on a regular basis. They are going to make sure my windows are done right and pay special attention to all of the little things I would have missed.

So, like I said, get your windows done this fall. Save yourself some hassle and enjoy what the leaves look like through clear and shiny window panes. cleaning service
