Coronavirus precautions

You wouldn’t go into the summer sun without wearing protection, would You?

We all know the importance of slathering on that summer sun protection, don’t we? But just as you protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, you need to protect one of your home’s most expensive investments from the harmful effects of daily wear and tear!
“What is ‘carpet protection’ anyway?”
When your carpet was new from the factory, each fiber was protected with a product that created a resistance to stains, soil and oil. Just as your sunscreen extends the life and beauty of your skin, this resistance helps extend the life and beauty of your carpet.
Now you can’t find this “protection” at the corner drugstore, but you can get it from your favorite professional Carpet Cleaner. After your cleaning, we can re-apply a factory approved product that will keep your carpet looking and performing as good as new.
Of course, this “protection” requires a little more investment, but it’s a step that should not be skipped.
“How do I know if the ‘carpet protection’ is working?”
You want your carpet to perform as it did when it was new from the factory. But remember nothing makes your carpet “bullet proof.” Just like your sunscreen has limitations, so do the protective products for your carpet. But if a good quality product is applied properly you will have carpet that resists stains (that are promptly attended to) and carpet that resists wear and tear (as long as it’s properly maintained). Besides that’s why we guarantee everything – even the performance of our carpet protection – with a 100 percent money back guarantee.
So don’t go out into the summer heat without your protection and don’t let your carpets “age” prematurely without their protection!

 

Simple, Good, Things

Wisdom from Mother Teresa

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; give the world the best you’ve got
anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; it never was between you and them anyway.
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies. Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier. We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
