Groupon Carpet Cleaning:

With Christmas almost upon I am being solicited by Groupon almost hourly. I must admit I have saved money using Groupon and will probably continue using it in 2019. While having a little down time this week I began scanning the Groupon ads looking for those last minute Christmas deals that some of us are famous for - yes I am a last minute shopper. One of the ads on Groupon was from one of my competitors for carpet cleaning. The ad was $54 for whole house up to 1,200 square feet. 

If you aren't aware how Groupon works from the vendor said let me explain it to you before discussing my competitor's ad. Of the $54 you pay Groupon the vendor will get half, in the case $27 dollars and Groupon will get one half or $27. The vendor will get his money in three installments. $9 will be paid out in about (1) week of purchasing, the second $9 will be paid out in (2) months, and the third $9 will be paid out in (4) months. This $54 Groupon is actually cheaper than renting a rug doctor, buying the chemicals, and doing the work yourself, or is it?

One of the things I first noticed about this ad is that they DO NOT tell you what steps they are going to take to clean your carpets ONLY what steps they will NOT take. The things they will not do for the $54 is clean stairs, clean more than 1,200 square feet, treat stains (ie: pet stains), apply carpet protectant, apply deodorizer, or apply pre-spray. If you did not know "pre-spray" is the cleaning solution (ie: soap). They state in their ad that they will not be using a cleaning solution. If they are not going to apply pre-spray then what are they cleaning the carpet with? I hope this is a typo on the Groupon or the vendor. Also according to the two leading carpet manufactures Mohawk and Shaw carpet protectant should be re-applied after every cleaning. Carpet Protectant should NOT. Carpet Protectant extends the life of your carpet and prevents stains from permanently setting into the fibres.

There is an old saying, "If it looks to good to be true it probably is," Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Residue From Camp Fire:

If you live in Northern California you have recently experienced a very horrific event called the Northern California Camp Fire. This forrest fire which was started as the result of an electrical fire from a PG&E (Pacific Gas & Electric) transformer and NOT an actual camp fire devestated the small town of Paradise, California. Almost all of the homes, offices, businesses, schools, etc. were literally burned to the ground. The flames came roaring down the mountains aided by 50mph winds that cost the lives of over 80 individuals. Needless to say our heart felt thoughts and prayers goes out to those who were affected by this fire.

Because Sacramento Valley is lower than Paradise in elevation and looks much like a bowl from satellite photos the Sacramento Valley became filled with the smoke from a fire that is over 80 miles away. Our air became very hazardous to say the least. Schools closed, offices, businesses, and sporting events were put on hold because the air was thick from the smoke. The air was so thick from the smoke that it almost blocked out the sun. Now that we have had several inches of rain in Northern California our air quality has cleared up and we are breathing much easier. Recently I took an inventory of my own home and noticed that my whol house filter was filled with debris, and my furniture and fixtures were covered with the remnant from the Camp Fire. Because of this I would suggest the following steps for cleaner air in your home:

1). Replace your whole house filter EVERY month for the next three months. There is residue smoke and dust from the Camp Fire in your duct work and vents that will eventually get captured by your whole house filter. You should see an improvement every month with less and less debris in the filter. Continue this step until you feel you can wait (90) days to replace your filter.

2). Dust thoroughly every inch of your house including figurines, ceiling fans, silk plants, furniture, books, etc.

3). Wash ALL of your bedding and towels.

4). Vacuum the carpets at least once per week using a HEPA filtration vacuum. Kohl's is currently selling a Shark HEPA vacuum for $199.00 and it is a very good vacuum with a very good price point. You will be amazed on how well this vacuum works.

5). Open your house up and let some fresh air in. Now that the air is clean again let your home breath. Get a breeze blowing through your home.

6). If you can financially afford it get your carpets and upholstery professionally cleaned using a service, like ours, that uses HOT WATER EXTRACTION (steam cleaning). This is the ONLY method approved by the carpet manufactures Mohawk & Shaw. A quality cleaner can remove over 95% of the pollutants from your carpet.

I hope this has been helpful. If you have questions please give me a call at (916) 525-2456 or email me below.

Sincerely,

Michael Hull - Owner
