Giveaway! $100 Gift Certificate for a Stanley Steemer Service!

We have been busier than ever, getting our house in order for the holidays. Our entire home is being repainted, and I've been working hard to sorting through the kids' old toys and clothing so we can donate it. We're organizing and making room for the holidays, and looking forward to starting the new year fresh. 

Painting the living room - freshening up for the holidays and the new year
This past Saturday, two technicians from Stanley Steemer, Joe and Gary, came in to deep clean our sofa. I'm excited to share my service experience with Stanley Steemer and offer you the chance to win a $100 certificate for a Stanley Steemer service, just in time for the holidays! You can enter today via Rafflecopter below!

The particular sofa I had steam cleaned is over 9 years old. It has served our family well, and has been the comfy seat of not one but two babies to toddlers - both Daniel and Chiara (and every mom knows what babies and toddlers can do to a sofa...). Though it has been moved from our living to our family room, our sofa is still the comfy spot for tv watching kids.
Joe and Gary spent about an hour cleaning our sofa, and I was more than surprised to see the finished product. It looks like (just about) new! Customer service was excellent - I booked online and the service technicians came exactly on time and were professional and courteous.
Here are a few facts about Stanley Steemer: 

  • With more than 60 years as the dirt authority, Stanley Steemer cleaning experts are certified to clean not only sofas, but also to remove more than 98 percent of dry soil from floors – a rate significantly higher than self-cleaning methods.
  • Not just for carpet cleaning, Stanley Steemer’s expertise extends to hardwood, tile, air ducts, water damage restoration, and more!
  • Their water extraction process provides a deep-down clean, perfect for cleaning up before or after the holidays
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.
