With more than 60 years as the dirt authority, the cleaning experts at Stanley Steemer are certified to remove more than 98 percent of dry soil from floors – a rate significantly higher than self-cleaning methods. In fact, in fall of 2011, Stanley Steemer technicians removed more than 56 tons of dirt from American Homes!
I recently took Stanley Steemer up on their offer to be my holiday helper. A day off from cleaning? Yes please!! I was pleasantly surprised to see that Stanley Steemer not only offers carpet cleaning service, but tile and grout, hardwood, air duct, and even furniture cleaning options!
When we moved into our home a little more than 8 years ago we ripped up all the flooring, with the exception of the tile in the foyer, kitchen, and bathrooms. Although I am a bit obsessive about keeping my floors clean, I’ve never been satisfied with the tile, until now!
After booking my appointment, two Stanley Steemer representatives arrived at my door the following day to clean my tile flooring in the foyer and kitchen. Nelson and Jacob explained the process and quickly got to work. I was waiving them off in under an hour. The service was professional, fast, and most importantly successful at getting the dirt and grime out of my tile and grout flooring.
Do you see the color of the grout? Yea, it totally wasn’t that color before. In fact, I am too embarrassed to show you the before pictures! My tile is white again, and the grout is a natural color, instead of a dark yucky brown.
With the exception of a small black mark in one of the grout lines, which Nelson mentioned was probably a deep stain due to red wine, my floors look fabulous! Stanley Steemer’s high pressure tile and grout cleaning removes the deep-down dirt that lies within the pores of the grout lines. For an additional charge they also offer a finishing coat of their clear or color seal to protect your floors from build-up.
To help you see through the dirt that lurks in your home and really make it merry and bright, the experts in the field from Stanley Steemer offer these holiday tips for maintaining a cleaner, healthier home:
With the holidays come the house guests
Reduce the amount of dirt and mud that may get tracked into your home by using indoor and outdoor entrance mats.
Pickup in a flash
Why deny the inevitable? At some point this season you’ll deal with red wine, gravy, pine needles or candle wax drippings on the carpet. Remember to act quickly to clean up any spills or stains; consider keeping a professional spot remover handy at all time or use items commonly found around the home such as white vinegar and baking soda.
Dirt is the ultimate scrooge
Keep up with the high traffic areas in the home, especially during entertaining season, by vacuuming them two to three times a week and the rest of your carpets at least once a week.
Stanley Steemer not only offers residential services, but commercial services as well. And they have you covered with so many different cleaning options! I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome of my floors and am proud to show them off this Christmas. I also received two Stanley Steemer spot removers that safely and effectively remove or improve most common spots including: chocolate, coffee, food stains, grease, inks, pet spots and more.
And guess what! One lucky My Boys and Their Toys reader will win a $100 Stanley Steemer gift certificate, plus two spot removers to help with post holiday clean-up. How awesome is that?!
