Think about it: Most people are not happy with franchises. Would you prefer McDonald’s or a chef-owned restaurant? The key is to think beyond simply name recognition and consider the reputation of the company you are considering to hire.
Your home is more than a commodity: it’s sacred. It’s more than merely a collection of valuables. It includes the items that you have acquired and used to create the experiences and memories of your life. We understand that. It influences how we approach each project. Your valuables will be protected during the course of the work.
The snow is melting and the temperatures are rising. With this warm weather brings signs of spring red wing blackbirds and robins. Spring skiing on the mountain. But with that comes wet and flooded basements from melting snow.
What can we do ?
1) Shovel all snow away from doors and basement windows
2) Look for any standing water near home and unblock and drain ( standing water will seep into the basement through the concrete or cracks in wall and cause damage. )
3) Stop the water from spreading and find the source.
4) Get the area dry quickly anything wet for more then 24 hours makes a chance for mold to grow.
If the job is bigger then you can handle on your own. Feel free to give us a call. We would be happy to help in any way possible even just to answer questions or concerns you may have. Enjoy the warm weather and stay dry.
Our latest project was a house full of smoke and soot residue. The house was rented and the renter started a fire. The problem, they never opened the flue. Hence smoke filled the house and every object had residue.
So we worked up an estimate submitted it to the insurance company. Once approved we were ready to start work. The work entailed cleaning all walls, ceiling, windows and floors. All the contents had to be cleaned and deodorized. From the ceiling fan, couches, mattresses, area rugs, and clothing.
Smoke gets everywhere and on everything so do we. After a full week we completed the project. Even having a ceiling and wall painted.
One of the advantages of hiring a smaller but competent company like Carpenter’s Cleaning Services is the personal touch and organized project. Other companies you get a salesman who gives you reports and when you want to get something done well, they need to talk to management. We offer one on one conversation not with employee but with the owner. Everyday we give updates and we don’t work for the insurance company like many larger companies. We work for the home owner we have your interests at heart. We guarantee our work and stand behind it.

” In The end you should do the right thing even if it is hard “
That is a quote my parents often use to say to me when I was a child and it’s a principle I still live by today. There are those who clean rugs that will say don’t worry about removing rugs we can clean them in your home it’s much easier then rolling them up and sending them out. But is it the right way to clean area or oriental rugs ? The simple answer is No. Why?
It’s a waste of money going over the top of the rug will make it look better, but it’s far from being really clean in fact 90% of allergens and dust are still in the rug.
Just because a company cleans carpets does not mean they have the knowledge or equipment to clean wool rugs. Often times lack of knowledge leads to damaged rugs color bleeding and shrinkage
Also wool rugs need the right cleaning agents ones that are lower PH and carefully made for wool.
Critical steps are skipped when rugs are cleaned in a home one dusting or dry soil removal without this step the homes air quality is not improved. Second is drying wool rugs are tightly knit and dry slow if not cared for properly can cause dry rot or even worse mold.
Rinsing most area or oriental rugs are on wood floors so proper rinsing is not possible and that cause cleaning agents left behind and rapid resoiling.
So don’t waste your money get it done right and by professionals at Carpenter’s Cleaning Services Video Coming soon !

Carpet is a large investment and you have shopped everywhere to get just the right color and design. So over time with the change of seasons in Vermont eventually the carpet needs to be cleaned. So the question is How often should I clean it ?
The reasons for carpet cleaning in Vermont are quite basic. We clean to maintain a healthier environment for ourselves and family or employees. We clean to improve the appearance of the carpet. Plus it extends the life of the carpet.
When we make investments like a car we know we need to maintain it. We change the oil, we give it a tuneup. Hey in Vermont we wash off the salt so it does not rust. If we ignore these basics then our cars life and value decrease. the same principle applies to carpet cleaning if we maintain it with regular cleaning then it will extend the life and value of our investment.
So here are some factors to consider when determining how often you would clean your carpet:
1) What type of carpet ?
2) What amount of traffic ?
3) What type of soiling is involved ?
4) What is the situation in the home or building to control soil ?
5) Are pets in the area ?
6) What appearance level do I want to keep ?
7) What will my budget allow ?
8) How often do I vacuum ?
After thinking about these questions consider the following facts.
All of us would love to have carpet that does not dirty. Unfortunately, all things fall down and your carpet gets the brunt of it. Carpet is amazing in that it can hide soil for some time. So even if it does not look bad it can create a unhealthy environment. This is true at a home or a business.
Cleaning on a regular basis is one of the most important facts. In a home with a family of four the rule of thumb is at least once a year. Also because we live in Vermont we can’t open windows in the middle of winter so we want healthy home with good air quality and a clean carpet will help. Some think that over cleaning of the carpet will shorten the life span of the carpet. Not true, the opposite occurs. When soil left unchecked, it wears away the fibers and breeds contamination. Professional periodic cleaning keeps those contaminates under control.
But beware of unprofessional carpet cleaners because they leave behind more soapy sticky residue that attracts dirt and causes rapid resoiling. That’s why we use a soap free product, all natural, a safer cleaning choice. Cleaning carpets is not a want it should be a must for your family’s health. We have cleaned carpets throughout Lamoille and Chittenden County. Please let our family serve yours.
