But don’t take my word for it…


You’ve heard me say it in sunny summer, and it’s worth saying again in gray winter: Clean your carpets regularly. Frequent professional cleaning has many benefits which are not limited to keeping your home looking great. As LeVar Burton always says on Reading Rainbow, “But don’t take my word for it!” Check this out: I stumbled upon this article from Cleanlink this morning which offers up the top ten reasons to have your carpets professionally cleaned year round, and I highly recommend it to anyone who needs a professional cleaning right now, in the cold clutches of winter but is considering putting it off until Spring for fear of Mother Nature.

Don’t fret! A professional carpet cleaning technician should come prepared for winter. Expect them to arrive with walk-off mats to clean their boots and door-blocks to keep your warm air (and pets) in while keeping Old Man Winter out.

Entryway carpets get the most abuse this time of year, and if you’re considering a cleaning, this is where I’d recommend you focus. Remember, carpet cleaning does not have to be a massive, all inclusive, expensive affair. Randy’s Carpet Care has a $60 minimum charge, and this may be all it takes to freshen up your entry and protect it from the damaging effects of mud, salt, and sand that inevitably gets tracked in.

You can’t live without these things, but you don’t know their story…

In the world of invention and innovation, the gents tend to get the lion’s share of public recognition. This is certainly true for innovators of household products, even products that are staples and household names. For example, we’ve all heard of William Procter and James Gamble, but show of hands: Who’s heard of Annie Murray? Mrs. Murray was the wife of an early investor in the failing Electro-Alkaline Company in 1916. Their chief product, Clorox Bleach, had up to that point been used by industry and the military (who, no joke, used it to clean battlefield wounds). Annie saw it’s potential as a household cleaner.

ANNIE: We should market liquid bleach to housewives. The money will… uh… Pour in.

MR MURRAY: You’re crazy. That’s the worst idea since plastic.

ANNIE: Watch this.
