Why are winter rates in effect. Well just a few reasons, it takes longer to bring carpet cleaning equipment and supplies in the home because some home owners don't clean their laneways or walkways and sometimes we have to shovel our way to the front door. Our equipment has a good chance of freezing between our truck and getting to the front door that could cost $ 600 and up to repair. Water lines can freeze, pump motors can freeze, recovery lines can crack. We have to keep the truck running at all times while equipment is in the truck as the equipment could freeze in the truck if we turn it off too long and leave it unattended. Higher chance of slipping and falling due to the customer not cleaning their snow and we can break an arm or a leg.
Have done some great jobs this month for nice people.
Here is a machine that seems popular and is getting great Reviews Check it out. Could be good to have around the house between cleanings.
Did some cleaning for some people just before moving into their new home and they were happy and nice and had no problem paying the going rates. Most people are nice and understand that carpet cleaning is hard work especially as our bodies get older. Thanks to the Great Customers.
To remove a spot, simply blot the spot and try working from the outside in, rinse thoroughly with clean water, then blot again. Never scrub the carpet, or you risk ruining the carpet fibers or letting the spill soak through to the carpet pad. There are several spot removers on the market; before you try one, test it out in an inconspicuous spot to make sure it doesn't discolor your carpet, some are way too soapy so make sure the spot is rinsed out completely. Sticky residue left behind will attract dirt to stick to the carpet.
When you can't get a spot out then it may be classified as a Stain. A spot comes out ..... A stain doesn't.
Small businesses in the area are struggling everywhere and the only people that can help small business is you. The big box stores and government are doing everything they can to kill small business.
The big box stores have gobbled up the small hardware store, and the local paint store, and the appliance store, and the list go's on and on.
So what next, the small businesses have moved to services as an alternative to have a small business and they are becoming all just one or two man operations just to stay alive.

When you buy from a small business you're not helping a C.E.O pay for his third vacation home. You're helping pay his hydro, his water bill's, his taxes, his gas, and heating bill's. You're helping pay to put food on his table, fix his car, or pay his lease payment or rent. Help a small business owner today ! So he can pay his bill's too !
When having your carpets cleaned expect to pay $ 200 dollars or more depending on what you have done. It's a lot of work and people don't realize this.
People will pay for take out food $ 50 to $100 no questions asked or when they go to the garage to fix their car you pay and pay and pay. But the poor carpet cleaner who spends his time and sweat cleaning the carpets at your home you nickle and dime him to death. That's just not right.
2 Rooms and Hallway and another room and set of stairs expect to pay at least $ 200.00 just pay the man !
