Do you have carpeting in some or all of your home? Are you trying to decide whether to hire a company to clean your carpets or whether you should attempt the job yourself? Here are some of the most important reasons why you should leave it to the professionals: Your carpet warranty: If you installed your carpet within the last year, you probably want to make sure that the warranty is still valid in case any issues arise. Manufacturers may specify that their warranty is only good if you have a professional carpet cleaning done every year. The manufacturer may not care if you cleaned it yourself, only whether or not a professional also did any cleaning. By performing the prescribed carpet maintenance, you’ll be able to keep your warranty intact for as long as possible. Pet odors: Pet odors and stains are notoriously difficult to remove. Chances are, you may already have tried several methods of removal. A professional carpet cleaning service may have access to stronger and more efficient cleaning solutions than you can find in an ordinary store. A pet stain that you’ve been fighting with for weeks or months may vanish completely after just one professional carpet cleaning.  They have professional-quality equipment: In addition to having access to a wider variety of carpet cleaning materials, they’ll also have access to better quality of equipment. Many carpet cleaners will use truck-mounted equipment, which is able to generate more heat and more suction than any rented or purchased home equipment. This better equipment means that they’ll be able to power through stains that could take multiple passes of a rented carpet cleaner to remove. As a result, not only will they be able to do the job better, they’ll also be able to complete the job in less time. They have more skill: Have you ever accidentally ruined an article of clothing, instead of removing the stain that you were working on? Not only does a professional carpet cleaning service have better chemicals and tools available to them, they’ll also have the knowledge and training to use them without damaging your carpeting. This means that whether you have an area rug made out of cotton or wool or just modern synthetic carpeting, they’ll be able to get out the accumulated grass and dirt stains.  Having your carpets professionally cleaned is a good choice for anyone with a busy lifestyle or who simply wants to have their carpets look like new again. Even if you have no pets and your carpet is no longer under warranty, your carpeting will look better than it has in a long time if you have it professionally cleaned.

Posted by on 10:18 pm in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Steps To Take Before Building A Fence

You may need a fence for many reasons: to keep your children safe, to keep your pets restrained, or to keep your swimming pool legal. Although some people choose to install fencing themselves, a contractor is often a better option. No matter who does the work, you will need to do some research before construction begins in order to make certain your new fence is legal. Restrictions  If your property is subject to municipality or neighborhood restrictions, you need to check to see what type of fence you are allowed to erect. Often, there will be restrictions on height and on the type of materials you can use. Many areas will restrict front fences to four feet and back and side yard fences to six to eight feet. If you want to use barbed wire or an electric fence, you will probably be out of luck. Most areas will not allow those materials to be used. In some instances, you will be required to keep the “pretty” side of the fence turned toward public spaces. Although it is your property, you will have to play nice with the neighborhood. Surveying Before you build a fence, you will also need to determine your property line. Even if you and your neighbors have an understanding about where that line is, you will need a survey to get a building permit and to protect yourself legally. If you are over the boundary line at all, your neighbor can usually force you to tear down your fence. Some neighborhood associations may require you to have the fence inside of instead of on the property line. Remember too, that your contractors are not responsible for discovering these rules. You must be aware of the restrictions and give them that information.  Contractors Experts recommend hiring a contractor that is licensed through the state for any significant work. Also, you can expect to pay somewhere between $32 – $48 per hour for a contractor’s services. Since you expect your fence to last for years, the investment is worth it. Plus, it adds resale value to your home while making it more secure.  Before building a fence, be sure to do your research. Check local ordinances and have a survey done. Also, search for a qualified and licensed contractor to do the work. Cutting corners on quality will only bring you short-term savings and long-term grief. A properly-done fence adds curb appeal to your home while making it safer and more private. Contact a company like Arizona Surveying and Mapping for more...
