We at Bolden’s are lucky to have all of you!
One surface that is often overlooked is flooring.
Floors are the largest reservoir for contaminants. Unfortunately, contaminants do not remain only on the floors – they are tracked throughout homes/businesses on shoes and socks and are spread by purses, backpacks, and pets.
Flooring surfaces are, in fact, high-touch surfaces and need to be included in routine cleaning as well as disinfection and sanitizing methods.
Carpet Cleaning Madness:
Things are starting to heat up during the basketball games as well as in your home. This can mean unintended spills and extra foot traffic on the carpets.
As soon as the games are over, you may not realize how dirty it can become after everyone has left for the night. In minor cases, it is nothing a thorough vacuuming job can’t fix. However, for those that haven’t been cleaned in a while, you may be due for a professional carpet cleaning.
While it is recommended to schedule your appointment after the games are over, here are some signs that you may be overdue:
Multiple Stains –
As our favorite players make their sixth slam dunk in the first ten minutes of the game, things can get heated quickly in the living room. This can result in spilled beer, soda, chips, and even melted cheese!
Of course, this was never intended to happen, but it may be tough to remove those sticky stains from the fibers. This could require a professional carpet cleaning in which the food or drink that has been embedded within the fibers will be completely removed.
Discoloration / Deterioration –
As March Madness can be an exciting time for inviting friends and family over to either relax or go crazy over the games, you can bet there will be some wear and tear on your carpet.
Over time and especially in high traffic lanes, the carpet will start to look deteriorated/discolored or thin in some areas. Common spots can include between your couch and coffee table, on the stairs, and in your entryway, where all shoes are taken off (if they are taken off).
While it may look like you need new carpeting at this point, sometimes a thorough cleaning just might put the life back into your floors.
Last Cleaning Was Over a Year Ago –
Even if it is not that dirty an annual cleaning can actually extend the life of your carpet.
Bolden’s also offers scotchgard to protect it from wear and tear in the future. We are prepared to handle that extra foot traffic!
5 Tips to Maximize Your Smaller Spaces:
We as people are often fascinated with tiny things… Puppies? Adorable. Babies? So cute! Tiny bedrooms/closets? Not so much.
Here are some great ideas to maximize your space in small bedrooms and closets so you can fall in love with your tiny spaces!
Check out the following tips on maximizing the small spaces in your life:
Tip 1: Look up –
Your square footage might not be anything to boast about, but don’t underestimate the power of “up!” Incorporating stacking bins, crates and wall hooks will help you add value to the “vertical” in your bedroom and closet.
Tip 2: Tuck Under –
Clear the dust bunnies! Random misplaced objects likely occupy the space under your bed now, but that’s about to change. Utilize this valuable space with rolling storage bins to stow away seasonal clothing and shoes.
Tip 3: Dress the Door –
Are you getting the most out of your closet and bedroom doors? “Dress” your door for success by adding over-the-door storage systems, such as shoe racks and baskets.
Tip 4: Work the Wall –
Walls aren’t just for décor! Not only can walls serve as useful storage systems, but they can help free up valuable floor space. For example, if you have a short wall inside your closet, hang a towel bar to store scarves. The possibilities are endless!
Tip 5: Mirror, Mirror –
When all else fails, add a mirror! Mirrors can help create the illusion of a larger space.
With these tips and tricks, you will be able to create beautiful and functional bedroom/closet spaces, no matter the size.
After weeks of cold and gloom, a hint of Spring is finally dawning! Let this Spring be the time of plans and projects
