May in Cincinnati is off to a soggy start with rain totals so far double the usual amount. While this may be good for those who just planted tomatoes in their gardens, it presents a couple of challenges for keeping carpet and upholstery clean.

DIY Carpet Cleaning SolutionCleaning Mud from Carpets and Upholstery

While we love our kids and pets, they can be dirt magnets that track mud onto our floors and furniture. (Of course, responsible adults would NEVER forget to wipe their feet!) If you find yourself with some of the great outdoors tracked into your home or apartment, refer to our carpet cleaning instructions to the right or download the instructions here.

Water Damage Cleanup and Restoration

With torrential rains comes the possibility of leaks and flooding.  Small leaks from your roof or gutter can lead to water stains, peeling paint, and sagging ceilings while larger leaks soil carpet and promote mold growth. One of the keys to minimizing damage is to act quickly, as the CDC recommends. Our guide, How to Handle a Water Damage Emergency, offers tips on everything from dealing with insurance companies to removing excess water and preventing mold.
