Keeping Our Kids Safe and Healthy

As a parent you are always concerned about the health and safety of your children. From that first moment the nurse or doctor placed that precious little one into your arms you knew that you had a big responsibility. BUT, you didn't care. It was a responsibility you gladly accepted.

keeping our kids safe and healthy
Even though they can try your patience at times, you love these little blessings with all your heart and soul. That love causes you to want to protect them at any and all costs. 

Keeping your children safe and healthy is such a dominant thought that you consider almost every aspects of their lives. You go to great lengths to keep your home "child-safe."

For example:

 You Consider the Physical Aspects of Your Home

  • Every toy is carefully considered and examined for safety before you purchase it
  • Safety latches are attached to cabinet doors and drawers
  • Electrical sockets are covered with outlet plugs
  • Anchors are secured to prevent furniture, TVs and ranges from tipping over and harming your child
  • Corner and edge bumpers are added to prevent serious injuries from falls against sharp edges on walls, furniture, and fireplaces
  • Knob covers that prevent a child from easily opening doors are secured and attached
  • Cordless window coverings are installed to lower strangulation risks
These are but a few of the lengths you go to to keep your children safe.

You Also Consider the Medical Needs and Risks

keeping children safe and healthy
  • You will likely talk with other parents about illnesses and prescriptions. You will want to know what they did when their child had a certain illness and how their child reacted to prescribed medications
  • You will make sure you have all the necessary over-the-counter medicines readily-available 
  • You will place all medications out of sight and reach of your child
  • You will have thermometers, bandages, hydrogen-peroxide, alcohol, saline solution, and MANY other medical items on hand
  • Your pediatrician's number will be stored in you phone and written on a card that is attached to the refrigerator 
You Consider the Safety of Household Cleaning Products

  • You carefully read the ingredients of cleaning products 
  • You read informative articles such as this one
  • You watch videos like this one ...

All of the above information is simply the tip of the iceberg of the lengths you will go to in order to keep your precious little one(s) safe and healthy. Beyond this, you will thoroughly check-out playgrounds, pre-schools, daycares, and other such places. 

This is VERY normal and any parent who doesn't consider these items, at least to some degree, is taking unnecessary risks related to their child's health and safety.

We all want safe home, learning, and play environments for our kids. I trust that this post serves as a catalyst for even further research you conduct into keeping your children safe and healthy.

For the Dirty Carpet Hater

Dear Dirty-Carpet Hater,





Honestly, you should indeed be concerned about any company you hire to clean your possessions and investments. Dishonesty has been a trademark of the carpet cleaning industry for decades. The video below reveals the types of scams and dishonesty that pervades the carpet cleaning industry. The video was first aired 20 years ago and NOTHING has changed in the industry since!

carpet cleaning Huntsville Al 

Thousands of honest homeowners, like YOU, have been ripped-off and lied to by countless so-called "professional" carpet and floor cleaners. 

Many people in this group of "ripped-off" homeowners (and I certainly hope that you are not in that group) have wasted hundreds and hundreds of dollars on these unscrupulous types of cleaners. They have literally flushed their hard-earned money right down the toilet!!! 

You deserve much, MUCH better!!!

I'm Tony Guthrie, owner of Kleaneasy Carpet and Floor Cleaning. If I am fortunate enough to earn your trust and business, here's what I will do for you.

1. I will provide you with a fair and honest price over the phone. I will not bait you with a low price to get the job and then change it when I arrive.
2. I will show up on time and within the time window I gave you when we set the cleaning appointment. 

3. I will show up in a clean, professional van and all of my equipment will be clean as well.

4. I will show up clean cut and wearing a professional company uniform. 

5. I will treat you and your home with dignity and respect. 

6. I will lay out rugs and mats at the entrance of your home so as to not bring more dirt into your home.

7. I will need to bring cleaning hoses that are attached to my van into your home SO I  will hang a curtain over the entry door so as to keep your heat or cool air inside your home.

8. I will pre-vacuum the carpets or tile I will be cleaning so as to remove as much dry dirt as possible. 

9.  I will pre-treat all spots and traffic lanes with a heated environmentally safe cleaning solution with a pressure sprayer. I will then agitate the solution deep into the carpet fibers with a carpet rake or rotary scrubber so as to break down and emulsify deep, embedded dirt.

10. I will steam clean the carpets with a truck-mounted cleaning extractor that will remove deeply embedded soil, gunk, allergens, dust mites, etc. 

11. I will place air-blowers on the carpets to help speed-up drying time.

12. I will post-groom the carpets with a carpet rake that will stand carpet fibers up and help the carpet look virtually new (or as new as possible).

13. I will provide you with a professional carpet audit and recommend a cleaning schedule of how frequently you should have your carpets professionally cleaned. I will also share the benefits of carpet protector and provide you with an estimate of the cost (this service is always recommended but is optional!

14. I will leave you with a 60-day spot and stain warranty that says that if any stains return after I leave (not likely) I will return at no cost and try to remove them. 

15. I will explain my full money-back guarantee. 

Why risk getting baited and switched with unscrupulous and 
unprofessional "professional" cleaners?

How to Keep Your Carpets Cleaner After Professional Cleaning

keep carpet clean

Anyone who has carpets (or rugs) wants to keep them clean. Because stains and traffic patterns are so visible we all want them erased from existence. This the primary reason people have their carpets and area rugs professionally cleaned once or twice a  year.

Once the carpets have been professionally cleaned we always want to keep them as clean as possible. Here are a few tips to help keep carpets clean after they have been cleaned professionally.

Make Sure Your Vacuum is Set to the Proper Height

If your vacuum is set to a pile setting that is too low, it can damage the carpet. If the setting is too high it will not pick up most of the dirt. To set your vacuum to the proper height, set the beater bar to its highest level and lower it until the suction starts to move the vacuum forward. Vacuum two or three times per week whether carpets show dirt of not. This keeps "invisible" dirt from accumulating. 

Place Mats Inside and Outside All Entrance Doors

This may seem obvious but I clean in MANY homes that do not have door mats. The dirt and wear is very heavy just inside the door as people walk in with dirt and oils on the bottom of their shoes. Also, moisture from rain on shoes attracts more dirt and makes carpets much dirtier much faster. Placing door mats allows people to wipe their feet and reduce tracked-in dirt significantly. 

Clean Up Spills A.S.A.P.

Stains and spills don’t ordinarily require hiring a professional carpet cleaning service. This is particularly true if you clean them as soon as they happen. The reality is that if you get to a spill as soon as it happens there’s a very good chance you’ll be able to remove it with nothing more than some water and a microfiber cloth. Press a dry microfiber cloth over the spot until most of the moisture and color is absorbed, then blot with a second cloth until the rest is removed.   Be careful not to scrub because it can damage the carpet fibers. 

Develop a Freshen-Up Mindset and Save Money

So often people will call me for cleaning when their carpets or rugs are heavily soiled. Honestly, this isn't the best approach. Heavily soiled carpets are harder to clean, require much more effort, and the costs are significantly higher. If you have a more "maintenance" mindset you can have your carpets cleaned when they are just beginning to show that they require a professional carpet cleaning service. This saves time and money and also extends the life and usage of your carpets. 

I hope these tips have been helpful.

Dealing with Pet Odor

Removing pet odors from a house is something most pet owners have to deal with (at least from time to time). Oftentimes home-owners with pets become "desensitized" to the actual odors within the home and actually do not notice them as much. Visitors, however, often easily notice these smells.

I once had a friend ask me to come over to his house and see if I smelled anything when I walked in the door. He and his wife owned a large dog that lived inside the home with them. My friend's wife was certain there was no "smell" because she couldn't smell it. The house, however, wreaked of the body odor of a large dog. Since they were trying to sell the house I told them they needed to do all they could to get the scent out.

Well, you may not have an issue like the one I just mentioned. Still, here are some ideas for removing pet odors from your home (just in case).

Vacuum Regularly with a High-Quality Vacuum

Obviously vacuuming with a high-powered HEPA vacuum cleaner 2 to 3 times per week will keep allergens down, prevent dirt from getting deep within the carpet fibers, and will remove pet dander and most hair. It is very important for pet owners to possess higher quality vacuums because the suction and cleaning power is greater.

Regularly Replace the Filter on Your HVAC

Change filters regularly in order to capture particles such as hair, dirt and pet dander and to keep your home smelling fresh.

Clean Stains and "Accidents" Quickly

It’s critical to clean pet accidents and stains quickly to prevent them from setting in. Obviously there will be times when you aren't there when the accident first takes place. If you are unsure of what to do to clean up an accident, call me for the steps. I will be happy to walk you through it.

Freshen the Carpet with Baking Soda

Start by vacuuming the carpet thoroughly to remove dust, dirt, dander and hair. Sprinkle baking soda generously over the carpet. Allow the baking soda to sit for a minimum of 30 minutes (the longer the better). Vacuum the carpet to remove the baking soda and any odors.

Brush and Groom Pets Often

Spending a few minutes every other day brushing your pet will reduce the amount of shedding hair in your carpets. This can also be a fun time for you and your pet. My cat loves to be brushed.

Call Me for Deep Cleaning Once a Year

I use the finest hot water extraction system to remove deep embedded dirt, stains and debris in the carpet and furniture. Yearly deep cleaning can ensure that your carpets and upholstery are not housing odor-inducing elements caused by your pets.

I hope these tips have helped.

Carpet Cleaning Huntsville | The White Towel Test


Take The White Towel Test…”

Try this: Try putting a clean white towel on the floor just inside your front door. Walk on it. Track stuff in on it. Let the dog sleep on it. Spill stuff on it…Now hereʼs the question: How long would it last? I mean how long would it stay clean? A month? A week…Couple of days maybe? Hereʼs the point: Your carpet gets just as dirty as that towel does! Except if youʼre like most people, itʼs been a year or more since you last had it cleaned.

Your carpet is just like a big filter in your home. It traps dust, pollen, bacteria… stuff you track in from the street. It traps everything! Itʼs actually designed to. (That’s why homes with carpeting have 27% less dust on average than homes with hard floors.) But what happened to all that dust, pollution, and bacteria? It had to go somewhere…Thatʼs right! Itʼs trapped in your carpet. And now your family is living on it! When you walk across your carpet, you stir this stuff into the air, and your family breathes it. This can complicate asthma, irritate your lungs and can even make some people sick!

“What If Your Carpets Donʼt Look Dirty?”

Studies have shown that if you have an average brown carpet, your carpet can hold up to NINE pounds of dirt in a single square yard (thatʼs an area 3 feet by 3 feet) Nine Pounds!! WITHOUT EVEN LOOKING DIRTY! Itʼs crazy, but most people change the air filter in their car more often than they get a good professional carpet cleaning!

“Donʼt Fall Into The Trap”

Letʼs say you had a suit of clothes that cost $1,000 dollars or more…and they were marked, ʻProfessional Dry Clean Onlyʼ. Is there any way youʼd go down to the local dry cleaners without any training and try and use their equipment to clean it yourself? No Way! Would you let someone else with some equipment…but no training clean your suit?

Sadly, less than 30% of ʻprofessionalʼ carpet cleaners have ever attended any kind of class, read a book, or ever attended even a two-hour seminar on how to clean carpet. They have some carpet cleaning equipment, (some of itʼs good, some of itʼs used and run-down…it depends on the company) but most carpet cleaners havenʼt had any more training than you have! Everything theyʼve learned, theyʼve learned through ʻexperienceʼ and making mistakes on other peopleʼs carpets.

What kind of a plan is that? In fact, most carpet cleaners DO NOT follow the manufacturerʼs recommendations for cleaning and many unknowingly void the carpetʼs warranty. They can overwet the carpet, use too much pressure, too much heat, or use chemicals that are so harsh they damage the fibers. The carpets can look clean when they leave, but within a few days, weeks, or months, the carpets can have real problems. Sometimes these problems canʼt be fixed!
