An excerpt from the book "The Cat in the Hat"

The Cat in the Hat is a mischievous character who creates chaos and mess wherever he goes, but he also values cleaning up his mess and making things right again. He’s right– it is essential to maintain a clean and organized home and workplace. For almost 20 years, we’ve use our very own ‘Thing 1’—Tools, and ‘Thing 2’ – Expertise, to keep client spaces in tip-top shape. Now, let’s start from the beginning and work our way down through our 5 key service areas.

Air Duct Cleaning

Regular air duct maintenance offers improved indoor air quality at your home or office. Air ducts accumulate dust, dirt, pollen, and other contaminants over time, which can circulate throughout your space and cause allergies, respiratory issues, and other health problems. By removing these harmful pollutants, air duct cleaning can help you breathe easier and promote a healthier environment. We use Rotobrush aiR+ equipment to scrub walls and eliminate settled dust, spores, and particles.

Drapery & Window Treatment Cleaning

We care for all types of window treatments, from luxurious curtains and delicate sheers to structured blinds and heavy blackouts. Our process allows us to clean them right from where they hang – no cumbersome removal and re-installment. Plus, our eco-friendly solvents guarantee fabrics remain as fresh and gentle as the environment itself. Our exceptional results have even earned us the status of preferred cleaner for Hunter Douglas.

Upholstery Cleaning

At Rugsies, we aim to clean every fabric surface, whether it’s sofas, chairs, mattresses, pool tables, lampshades, or any other upholstered pieces you may have. Our services include deep cleaning, stain removal, and fabric protection, all done through eco-friendly processes that prioritize minimal drying time and maximum green protection and safety.

Tile & Grout Cleaning

At Rugsies, we offer comprehensive services that cover every nook and cranny of your space, including your tile and grout. Using our preferred HOST equipment, we gently work eco-friendly solutions into even the hardest-to-reach crevices to effectively eliminate dirt and stains and polish surfaces as we go. Our approach results in impeccably clean and environmentally safe spaces.

Rug & Carpet Cleaning

As our name reflects, our expertise lies in area rugs and wall-to-wall carpeting. We utilize the HOST Dry Extraction Cleaning System to dissolve and absorb soil, leaving your walking surfaces soft and clean. And because our eco-friendly process requires minimal liquid, your carpets are nearly instantaneously dry. Our cleaning services are also ideal for delicate pieces, including handmade, Persian, Oriental, and silk area rugs.

At Rugsies, we are committed to providing environmentally-friendly services and solutions while using an approach that ensures the ultimate convenience for our clients and their families. Contact us today. 

Clean Homes and A Smiling Planet: The Rugsies’ Guide to Green Cleaning

As the world becomes more environmentally aware, Rugsies is stepping up and doing its part in reducing our impact on the planet. Being an eco-friendly carpet cleaner means using sustainable methods and products, minimizing waste, and being mindful of the energy we use.

Here’s how we go the extra mile to protect the environment:

  1. Using green products. Not only are these cleaners better for the environment, they’re also safer for you and your family. Made from natural, biodegradable ingredients and free of harsh chemicals, our products work just as well as traditional cleaning products. When used to clean carpets, rugs, upholstery, and window treatments, they remove dirt and stains and leave behind a fresh and safe living environment.
  2. Implementing eco-friendly processes. We’ve implemented water-saving methods in all of our cleaning processes. We know every drop counts, which is why we use water efficiently – using a low-flow hose, adjusting the water pressure, and reusing clean water.
  3. Investing in Green Seal Certified equipment. We’re committed to providing high-quality cleaning services while minimizing our environmental footprint. That’s why we use top-of-the-line, energy-efficient technologies like the HOST Dry Extraction Cleaning System, a safe and effective eco-friendly floor cleaning system made from 100% plant-based resources. Not only does it save energy and reduce our carbon footprint, but it also helps us get the job done faster, so our clients can quickly return to their daily routines.

At Rugsies, we’re constantly striving to be more environmentally responsible in our operations. We feel obligated to be good stewards of the environment, and we take that responsibility seriously. So, we’re always on the lookout for new ways to reduce our impact on the planet. There’s always room for improvement, and we’re committed to continuously seeking new and innovative ways to be more sustainable.

The Importance of Keeping a Clean Business: Why Sanitation Matters for the Productivity of Your Business

It’s no secret that a clean business is a productive business. In fact, companies are forced to shut down every day because of their inability to keep up with sanitation demands. The Abbott Nutrition plant in Michigan is a prime example – forced to close down because of “egregiously unsanitary” conditions. That closure initiated a baby formula shortage and increased prices of available formula, demonstrating the power of cleaning to maintain business continuity. The lesson here is that a dirty workplace can have far-reaching effects.

The unfortunate events at the Abbott Nutrition plant should serve as a reminder that proper sanitation is essential for businesses to remain productive and successful. Consider the following factors when planning your commercial cleaning services budget:

  1. Health and Safety Regulations: Companies must meet specific health and safety regulations to stay open for business. Businesses must keep up with these standards or risk facing costly fines—or worse, business closure.
  2. Employee Health: Employees need to feel safe and comfortable to be productive at work, and a clean workspace is essential for this. Studies have shown that a dirty environment affects employees’ mental states, reducing motivation and productivity.
  3. Customer Experience: Customers will form an opinion of a business based on its physical appearance. A clean environment conveys a sense of professionalism and trustworthiness, which leads to customer retention and loyalty.
  4. Consult your cleaning service: A reliable and professional cleaning service will be able to provide the best advice for how much and what kind of cleaning services you need, based on the size and type of your business.
  5. Think long-term: Investing in a quality cleaning service now could save you money and hassle later. Preventative maintenance is always the best way to ensure your business will remain clean and productive for years to come.

Businesses need to consider commercial cleaning services as an investment in their future success – not just an expense. Keeping your workplace clean and up-to-date with health and safety regulations will help ensure the well-being of employees and customers and improve productivity. And the Rugsies team can be an essential partner in keeping your business competitive – both now and in the future.

Should You Take Your Shoes Off Before Entering a Home?

In many cultures, taking your shoes off before entering a home is customary. The practice is part respect and part cleanliness since some cultures also sit on the floor to eat. And while most people don’t dine at low tables in the US, there are still plenty of reasons why you might want to adopt this tradition.

When was the last time you paid attention to a city sidewalk? They’re filthy! We track all sorts of gross things in our homes on the bottoms of our shoes without realizing it. And it’s not just grass clippings from the garden; you can easily track drug-resistant pathogens, cancer-causing toxins from asphalt road residue, and hospital-associated infectious germs by wearing shoes indoors.

Even if you live in a rural area or take care to only step on clean surfaces, there’s still pollen and other irritants. These irritants can cause problems for people with allergies or asthma.

Taking your shoes off before entering a home is not difficult to get used to, especially with these easy tips.

Create a designated place to put your shoes when you enter the home. This could be a specific corner near the front door, a decorative storage basket, or just a simple mat. Having a designated spot will help you remember to take your shoes off and make it easier to find them when you’re ready to leave.

If you don’t like walking barefoot, keep a pair of slippers or comfortable shoes near the door that you only wear indoors. You should also consider having spare slip-resistant socks or flip-flops for your guests to use while they’re in your home.

If you’re a guest in someone’s home, you may want to err on the side of caution and take your off your shoes. It’s better to be safe than sorry, and your hosts will appreciate your consideration.

Of course, floors will inevitably get dirty, even in the cleanest of homes. So, give Rugsies a call and schedule a professional cleaning today. A clean floor is always the best way to go!
