Cleaning my carpets

Choosing a carpet cleaning company is never easy and this weekend I had the decision to choose one because there was a stain that even I couldn’t get out of the rug.  Yes that is right even after 40 years of cleaning there was a stain that I had to call in a cleaning company to take care of.  This kind of hurt my pride a bit as a grandmother I really like being the one who is able to take care of all these kind of problems.  Oh well at least they did a good job. I’ve had the misfortune in the past of shady companies run by guys who look like they aren’t very honest.

carpet cleaning tipsone tip that I would give anyone reading this is to really do your homework on the company that you hire because they will be in your home and see all your possessions.  My friend Gale had hired a plumber over in Augusta GA one time and she suspects that they had taken the job just so that they could case the joint.  She was unfortuantely robbed of everything she owns.  The thiefs were never caught but they suspect that it was those shady plumbers.

I think that if you can do it yourself that it is better to take care of the stain yourself.  You can do this in a few ways.  One is to use baking soda or toothpaste on the stain and then let it sit for awhile.  This will make it so that the chemicals seep in and do their thing.  When you come back it should be ok to get rid of the residue.
