Area Rug General Care & Maintenance Guide

Area Rug General Care Guide

Vacuuming:
Most of today’s vacuums are designed for high-powered suction on hard surfaces and wall-to-wall carpet. Because of this, they are often too aggressive for use on rugs at a normal setting. Upright or canister vacuums that don’t include a beater bar are the best choice, but a standard vacuum on a low power setting will work.

Coat Drive for the Lexington Salvation Army

While I do love cleaning carpet and creating a great service experience for my customer,s I also believe it is important to teach my children to be of service to others and that we should leave this world in better shape than we found it.

 

During the week it seemed that channel 18 and 27 news was on a non-stop loop asking for donations of winter clothing for the Lexington Salvation Army. With so many cold spells hitting Central Kentucky so quickly the Lexington Salvation Army was quickly running out of jackets and warm winter clothing. After checking Facebook and other social media outlets it didn’t take long to realize the problem wasn’t a lack of coats but a lack of transportation. Many of our Lexington residents had donations to give but no way to get them to the people who needed them most.

We spent our weekend running all over Lexington, Nicholasville, and Georgetown collecting clothing from donors. It was a great way to spend the weekend with the kids, even if it was a little cold. I think it made the boys and I appreciate what we had just a little more. The girls, on the other hand, I can’t vouch for. They were bundled up in the warm cozy house taking phone calls and keeping the van running efficiently. In conclusion, it was a huge win not only for me as a parent but for the Lexington Salvation Army. We were able to collect almost 400 coats for the people who needed them most and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank You For Your Support!
