that many of our friends and neighbors either aren’t wearing face protection or are doing so improperly. First, you should put on your face mask when your hands are clean. Don’t wait until you are in a store and have touched a buggy or a door to put on your mask. I put mine one while I am still in my vehicle. When I am wearing a mask at work, I wash my hands thoroughly and then put on my mask. Next, always wash your hands again before removing your mask. If you touch your masks with dirty hands, you have contaminated your mask. This is a critical point because you do not want to contaminate the area that is near your face. Finally, wash your mask regularly to make sure that it is clean and free of germs. Check out this link from the CDC on mask wearing procedure, how to sanitize your mask, and how to make a homemade mask. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html
have that may need to be sanitized when you finish with your essential errands. You may not get out of your car, but if you touch the buttons on an ATM, you have definitely exposed yourself to possible infection. Remember, hand sanitizer and hand washing are your friends.
Finally, make sure that when you are cleaning and disinfecting your home with a disinfectant cleaner that you use the correct chemicals in the proper way. The CDC has published a list of chemicals that are effective in killing the Coronavirus. You can check out that list at the following address https://www.epa.gov/pesticide-registration/list-n-disinfectants-use-against-sars-cov-2. The most critical issue besides using the proper chemical is that you let the chemical dwell (sit) on the surface you are cleaning for the recommended amount of time to actually be effective. If you spray on a recommended chemical and immediately wipe it off, you have really done nothing to fight any virus. You must read the directions of any chemical to determine whether the chemicals need to sit on the surface for a minute, five minutes or even dry on the surface to work.

“hot water extraction or steam cleaning” is the recommended method for carpet cleaning.
You should have your carpets cleaned at least every 12 months depending on the traffic in your home to remove oils and particulates that accelerate soiling. Dry cleaning and other cleaning processes that use harsh chemicals can be damaging to your carpet. Advanced Cleaning Service offers quality carpet cleaning and only uses the hot water extraction method of cleaning.
Avoid the Lowest Cost Option
We all want to save money, but the lowest price option may not be the best choice. Make sure when you are looking at companies that you are aware of two potential issues. First, some companies offer a price that is much lower that all their competitors just to get into your house and sell you on other services. They may use this same trick to get in the door and then tell you that their price only included the very basic of services. Second, the price may be low because the company is paying subpar employees, using old equipment, or planning to rush through your job and move on to the next job. To avoid these issues, check the next three recommendations to make sure that you are getting the best deal not just the lowest price.

discover that when it dried it looked just as dirty as when you started? Why isn’t your back-breaking labor enough to get the dirt off of your floors?
Do you need to simply throw your hands up in disgust or is there a solution to this problem? To get an answer, we must first look at the makeup of tile floors today so we can determine the best way to clean tile floors.
Ceramic Tile Floors
Ceramic tile floors are a bit pricier than most other floor coverings but are also more durable and easier to clean in the long run. Ceramic tile floors do not require daily vacuuming or mopping as other types of floor like Luxury Vinyl Tile floors do to avoid scratching.
The main issues with dirty appearance in ceramic tile floors :
Grout Lines - Grout lines are the concrete mortar that holds the tiles together. Grout by nature is porous and therein lies the issue. If your grout was not installed with sealant included or has not had sealant added to the top of the lines, anything you spill on the floor will seep into the grout and stain it.
If you are unsure if your grout is sealed or not, try this simple trick. Take a TSP of water and pour it onto a grout line on your floor. If the water beads up and sits on top of the grout, your grout is sealed. If the water immediately sinks into the grout, call us at
in the walking paths, around the stove, and around the trashcan? That black is caused by dirt that has gotten into the grout that cannot be removed by mopping alone.
Uneven Crevices - As tile manufacturing has gotten more technologically advanced, so have patterns and designs. Now tile is available with waves not only in color but actually in the tile so that each tile is uneven in areas like a small ripple in the surface of the tile. The problem here is that each ripple is a resting place for dirt. You can get some of this out by scrubbing on your hands and knees – yuck! But eventually, the dirt needs to actually be extracted from the floor area.
If you are cleaning your floors regularly, your grout lines are sealed, and your floor still looks bad, one of two things is happening. First, if you are using too much chemical to clean the floor, the residue can actually attract dirt! Second, you may actually need to have the dirt extracted from all the crevices in the tile. For this, it’s time to call a professional tile cleaning service. Hot water, steam extraction with our truck-mounted units has the heat and the power to extract the grime from your grout lines and flush the dirt from all the cracks and crevices of your tile.
Using a tile and grout cleaning service regularly will keep your investment in your home looking great and allow you more free time. Our certified technicians have the knowledge to diagnose any issues and concerns you have and help you maintain the beauty of your home.

Depending on where you live, pollen can be brought into your carpet fibers at different times of the year. And it affects a great deal of our population. In fact, Healthline estimates that over 60 million people in the U.S. have symptoms of allergic rhinitis. Pollen is one of the main contributors to allergies and we carry it into our homes in many ways - on our shoes, our clothes and our hair. It comes in through open windows and doors and our pets carry it inside.
Vacuum your carpet more frequently during high pollen season. Ask your carpet cleaning company for carpet cleaning specials around high allergy season to get your carpets and upholstery cleaned a second time if someone in your family is an asthma or allergy sufferer.

home. If left unattended, the urine can saturate the carpet and padding and penetrate the subflooring resulting in an issue that is much harder to address. So, how can you remove the pet urine odor from your carpets?
For small pet accidents, try the 5-step procedure below. If you have larger or many stains, consider hiring a professional carpet cleaning company. Commercial carpet cleaners have stronger enzyme cleaners and high-power suction that can remove more urine from your carpets than you can remove on your own.
If you are needing to remove a small pet stain, try these simple steps:
How to quickly remove small pet urine stains:
Step 1: Remove any wet urine from the carpet. If the urine dries, it stains the carpet and increases bacteria growth. To best remove the stain, place a layer of several paper towels or an old towel over the wet area of the carpet. Stand on the paper towels so that the cloth absorbs as much of the pet pee as possible.
Step 2: Create a cleaning solution. Create a vinegar cleaning solution consisting of one-part white vinegar to one-part water. Vinegar neutralizes the ammonia smell of urine without fading carpet fibers, making it a good choice for cleaning and protecting your carpet.
Step 3: Apply the cleaning solution to the carpet. Slowly pour the solution on the stained area of the carpet. The solution needs to reach the lower fibers in the carpet to completely neutralize the area.
Step 4: Let the solution dwell in the carpet and remove liquid. After allowing the carpet to absorb the solution for 15 minutes, use a layer of paper towels or an old towel to soak up the liquid.
Step 5: Apply baking soda. Once the carpet is almost dry, sprinkle a little baking soda on the area to absorb the odor. Allow the baking soda to settle into the carpet fibers overnight, then vacuum the area several times to remove the baking soda.
For multiple spots or recurring issues, turn to a carpet steam cleaner for help.

A good pressure washing is crucial when you want to update the exterior paint on your home, deck or fence. This is because the wash helps remove dirt, mildew and broken down paint residues that keeps fresh coats of paint and stain from adhering to your exterior surface.
Further, pressure washing has some other great benefits to keep in mind.
#1 - Improves Curb Appeal
Every spring, homeowners spend tons of time working on updating their landscaping and decorations, and your home’s exterior siding/brick and fencing being clean should be no exception to the update. Having your paint or stain look new and clean adds to the overall look and feel, and is especially important when it comes time to sell your home.
#2 - Increases Your Home’s Value
According to Consumer Reports*, a good pressure washing along with needed paint touch ups and siding/brick replacements can help increase the value of your home by as much as 2-5%. As mentioned earlier, these updates are crucial when it comes time to sell your home.
#3 - Preventative Maintenance for your Home
Regularly scheduled pressure washings will prevent grime and mildew from breaking down your home’s exterior, causing you to worry less about having to replace rotted wood, chipped paint and premature aging of your home. A professional pressure washing before you paint will also help your new paint job last much longer than if you painted over dirty siding or brick.
#4 - Protects Against Harmful Bacteria
Your home’s exterior surfaces accumulate dirt, grime, mildew and other bacteria that are wise to avoid, as some can be harmful to us. Having a power washing done yearly helps ensure that you are removing these contaminants, keeping you and your pets safe from getting sick.
Did you know you can power wash more than just your home’s exterior?
Power washing works great on:
· Garage Door
· Outdoor Grills
· Driveways and Walkways
· Patios and Decks
· Outdoor Furniture
· Swimming Pools
· Decorative Signs and Statues
While you can rent or purchase your own residential pressure washer, keep in mind that is expensive, time consuming and in some cases dangerous if you aren’t familiar with how to work one. Dangers include using too much pressure or the wrong nozzle causing wrecked surfaces, broken windows and injuries to others or yourself. In addition, residential pressure washers are do not have the same pressure that our commercial units can provide and do not use hot water which increases the cleaning power exponentially.
