It’s allergy time again!!!

allergy cleaningWhile many of us look forward to Spring arriving,
there are others of us who can’t help but dread the allergies
that go with it. An estimated 1 out of 5
American’s have allergies. The biggest culprits are
pollens, dust, and molds. Of course, you should consult
with your doctor to discuss your options regarding
medications, supplements or diet changes. But, here
are a few tips to supplement what your doctor prescribes:

Spring Cleaning. A clean house with less dust has
fewer allergens and makes for a healthy indoor environment.
At least two times a year it’s good to do a thorough
cleaning of the carpets, upholstery, pillows, mattress
covers, even your window coverings and make
sure your air ducts are kept clean every 3-5 years. I
remember the years when my mother did Spring and
Fall cleaning. We’d haul the mattresses outside and
clean every square inch of our rooms. Not a bad concept
but I’m not sure about taking the mattresses outside.
A good vacuuming would likely do! And save
on your back!

Don’t Be Left Out in the Cold this Holiday Season!

holiday guestsIf you want your carpets to be sparking clean and fresh for your holiday guests, be sure to call us soon.  Many people are focusing on what they are thankful for this time of year…and many are planning parties to celebrate with family and friends.  Which means just about everyone wants their carpets, tile and furniture cleaned before their guests arrive.  Don’t wait until the last minute!

I want to be able to fit you in, and I want to do a quality job for everyone.  The next two months, my appointments fill up fast.  Many people ask me how often they should get their carpets cleaned, and the answer is “it depends on” (do you have kids, pets, etc.?)   But a good rule of thumb is at least every 12-18 months for sure.  Clean carpets means clean indoor air, and it preserves the life of your carpets!

Fall Cleaning

carpet-cleaning-01Hasn’t this been a fabulous fall?  Wow!  As I’m writing this, the temperature outside is 15 degrees above normal  We’re not winter people, so we’d like to see this weather continue until March, and then warm up from there!  Lots of luck on that, right?  I’m sure many of you don’t agree with this, especially if you enjoy all the winter sports and the fun that goes along with them.  That’s not us.  Sometimes I think we were born in the wrong state!!!
For us, 2016 has been a pretty good year overall.  We hope the same is true for you!   It’s hard to believe it’s already time to begin shopping and planning for the holidays.   Where does the time go…?
Just a reminder….we are moving into our busy time now.  If you’re in need of cleaning before or even just after the holidays, be sure to give us a call or email us at your earliest convenience.  That way, we will be able to better meet your timing needs!

Thank you!

When you refer someone new to us, we will thank you with a reward of 10%-20% of their cleaning bill.  You earn 10% on the first three referrals and the fourth one we will give you 20% of their sale.

Does it feel like you’re allergic to just about everything? Even being awake?

“I used to wake up at 4 a.m. and start sneezing, sometimes for 5 hours.  I tried to find out what sort of allergy I had but finally came to the conclusion that it must be an allergy to consciousness.”  – Raymond Chandler, American Writer, 1888-1959

I bet this quote may be very similar to how you feel.  It sometimes feels like we’re allergic to simply being awake.  With springtime upon us, it’s a good time to begin thinking about a few things.

According to The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, 1 in 4 Americans suffer from allergies or asthma.   Wow!  That’s a lot of Americans!!!

According to WebMD, we spend 90% of our time indoors.  And our indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air, depending on factors such as if the residents smoke.

“Many people think that carpets and allergies are a bad combination.  Even some allergists will encourage their patients to remove carpeting in favor of hardwood or tile floors.  However, carpets can actually help to reduce the allergens in your home by trapping them, as long as they are properly cleaned on a regular schedule.”    – www.allergyrelief101.com

Carpets trap indoor allergens like dust mites, mold, mildew, fungus, pollen, pet dander and other pollutants and allergens but when that trap gets full, a professional steam cleaning is needed to remove those allergens from your carpet and your home.  What’s the result?  Relief from allergy symptoms related to those substances.

I often hear how much better my clients feel after they get their carpets cleaned.  Prevention can be the best medicine!  Clean carpets can lead to clean indoor air which most likely will result in relief!  Call us today to get your carpets cleaned!!!

If Flooding Occurs….Don’t Panic!

We’re coming upon that time of year when flooding occurs as the snow melts or we experience heavy rains.  Though we all hope it never happens, it’s a good idea to be informed just in case water damage happens to you.

First, something you should do now to be prepared. Contact your homeowners insurance agent to find out if you  are able to get sump pump failure coverage.  Even if you are not able to purchase flood insurance, you may still be able to get this type of coverage.

Then, be aware when flooding occurs, fast action on your part is key!  Standing water needs to be removed immediately.  Mold will start to grow on a damp surface within 24-48 hours.  We can do water removal and clean up quickly and the cost associated with it is relatively low as compared to the cost of mold remediation if it is not taken care of properly.


Here’s some things to do if you do experience flooding:

  • Contact your insurance company to determine if the damage is covered and take picture of the water damage.
  • Move all photos, paintings, and art objects to a safe, dry location.
  • Remove and prop up wet upholstery and cushions
  • Remove rugs from wet floors and pick up loose items from the floor

And never enter an area with standing water or turn on light fixtures if the ceiling is wet.

Then call me, Joe Greiner, Greiner Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning.  I’ll give you a fair, honest assessment and solution.
