Now that the kids are back in school… have you looked down lately?
Regardless of whether or not you have school age children, August and September tend to be busy for us all. And now that the dust of summer is settling…let’s take a look down.
“What exactly am I looking for?” Hopefully nothing. Let’s face it, if your carpets look dirty – time has gotten away from you, and your carpet needs our TLC right now! (Call 920-393-4062) But if your carpet doesn’t even look dirty then you are doing a good job in preserving its appearance and longevity.
But that doesn’t mean you can put off your cleaning…
After all, it’s what you don’t see that harms you and your carpet. Fine soils are distributed into your carpet every day and over time these wear and break down the fibers, eventually causing the “worn” traffic lanes you see in so many homes today. Also, invisible to the eyes are the pollutants, dust mites, and other harmful things that are trapped in your carpet everyday. Every time you or your family walks across the carpet these pollutants get redistributed into your indoor air and pollute it. That’s one of the reasons indoor air is more polluted than outdoor air.
But don’t worry, there is a solution to all of this…Just pick up the phone and call us at 920-393-4062. We’ll work with your schedule and before you know it no more allergens, no more dust mites, no more soils, no more spots. Just fresh, clean, healthy carpet. And every time you look down you can feel good about what you don’t see. If you call before September 30, 2021, you can save 10 percent off main living spaces, 15 percent off whole house, 33 percent off Scotchgard™ Carpet Protection. We look forward to hearing from you.
Call 920-393-4062 today.
Do you know someone who has kids starting back to school soon? If they have never used us, we will give them a FREE room of carpet cleaning in your name! (up to 200 sq. ft. of carpet, new clients only) P.S. We will send youa $10 Gift Certificate for your referral… So THANKS in advance!!
Monuments to 9/11 around the world
September 11 marks the 20th anniversary of the terror attacks on America. There have been many wonderful monuments erected in the United States. Additionally, beautiful monuments have been built around the world, including the following:
9/11 Living Memorial Plaza Ramot, Jerusalem. This monument measures 30 feet and has been partially forged with recovered steel from the twin towers. Inscribed on the surrounding plaques are the names of those killed in the attacks.
Memory and Light Padua, Italy. The “Memory and Light” monument was designed by Daniel Libekind, the architect who created the master plan for reconstructing at ground zero. Italy marked the 9/11 attacks with a new glass and steel memorial that incorporates a twisted steel beam from the World Trade Center.
Since 9/11 at the Queen Elizabeth II Olympic Park, London. Boris Johnson unveiled a sculpture by US artist Miya Ando entitled “Since 9/11,” which uses steel taken from the World Trade Center. The piece was commissioned by a UK-based charity to help educate Londoners about the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
World Trade Center Artefact Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Steel fragment recovered from World Trade Center, gifted from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to the Military Museums in Calgary, Alberta, honors the victims of 9/11.
Flooring Q & A with Joel J: doggone muddy paw prints!
Q: Combine a rainy day, a muddy garden, a curious dog and carpeting and you’ll have our problem. Is there a way to get the muddy paw prints out of the carpeting?
A: Yes! This is the best way we’ve found: First, dry the mud. Mud is very annoying to deal with but when it dries and becomes dirt it is much easier to remove. In the summer, it helps to turn on the air conditioning. For fall and winter, turn up the heat. If you have any ceiling or portable fans, they will help too. Patience is important. When the mud dries to dirt, a vacuum will remove it easily. If it’s still wet, you’re going to have a bigger mess. Vacuum thoroughly and slowly. This should remove about 90 percent of soiling. For any dirt still in the carpeting use a light cleaning solution (spray bottle with a tablespoon of dish detergent). Spray and dab area with a clean white rag until gone.
Joel says: Remember, spots and stains can be tricky, and certain cleaners can cause permanent damage. Call Jensen’s anytime for a free quote if you’d like us to take a look.
