How Scotchgard® on our carpet and upholstery makes Thanksgiving better at our house

My mom has a love/hate relationship with Thanksgiving. She LOVES having her family over to laugh, tell stories, play games and enjoy a great meal. She HATES having her family over to spill juice on the carpet, gravy on the chair and having to clean all the dishes. We help by doing the dishes and clean up after she and Dad feed us well. But as far as the carpet and upholstery go, I will be honest, I am nervous about going over there. AND, about a week before any big family event at her house, one of us kids will get the frantic call: "I... Read More

They are coming! Sleeping in your bed! Showering in your shower! Spilling on the floor! Don't worry, we have you covered.

5 tips to help your visitors follow your no shoe policy

One reason people don't adopt a no shoe policy is because they don't want to impose it on other people. Some people have medical conditions that may require them to keep their shoes on, while others are more concerned with the condition of their socks, feet or the look of their outfit. Since Denver is a year-round town, with activities that keep us outdoors any day of the year, and therefore tracking in gunk with our shoes, having a no shoe policy is a good idea. If you aren't sure exactly why you should even consider a no shoe... Read More

Why to adopt a No Shoe Policy for clean carpets

Homes with small children, those toddlers and infants that spend most of their time on the floor, are encouraged to adopt a no shoe policy. And it is never too soon. Scientific studies, including those from the EPA, show the dangers that can enter your home from the soles of your shoes. Not only do shoes track in bacteria, they can track in dirt, grime and toxins that can damage your floors and even stay in your carpet. For these reasons, more and more Denver homeowners are using a no shoe policy in their home. So, what's on your... Read More

You dirty dog!

No, we aren't talking about the political campaigns running right now. We are talking about those furry babies that are a big reason for our carpets being SO dirty.

7 Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Tips for Moms

Kids are so cute. And dirty. I sometimes have thought that kids are so darn cute because when they make big messes, we need some reason to extend the level of grace and patience needed to deal with it like an adult. And not the only sometimes OCD adult that we can be. Other than pet stains, kids make the most messes on carpets and upholstery. Whether paints gone awry, muddy footprints, food and drinks or more, kids are walking chaos makers. But, they are so cute and steal our hearts, so we need to deal with the temporary... Read More
