National Puppy Day

National Puppy Day

National Puppy Day is celebrated on March 23rd. It was created in 2006 by Colleen Paige and is celebrated every year in support of Puppy Adoption. It also gives attention to the aversion of puppy mills as well as simply setting aside a day to honour our loyal, little friends.

Puppies are so cute and lovable yet they don’t come without a few hazards to our carpets on occasion.

Please keep Dang Good Carpet and Furnace Cleaning in mind when you are potty training your new pup. Puppies can take several months to be house trained. That can really take a toll on your carpets. We can black-light your carpet to show you just where your fur ball has left their mark and we can use products to sanitize and deodorize the carpet too.

Duct Cleaning Benefits

Furnaces play an integral role in life in Canada and are critical for keeping our homes at a comfortable temperature over the harsh winter months. While the technology that powers your furnace is relatively simple, it does have to be regularly cleaned to ensure it’s operating safely and efficiently.

Here at Dang Good Carpet and Furnace Cleaning, we’re proud to provide expert furnace duct cleaning in Calgary that’s specifically designed to help keep your furnace in top notch condition. Read on to learn more about the key benefits of enlisting the services of professional duct cleaners in Calgary, Airdrie, Chestermere and the surrounding areas.

A Healthy Living Environment

The most important advantage of using a furnace duct cleaning service in Calgary is that it can create a healthier living environment for you and your family. Over time, dust, dirt and other irritants can accumulate in the ducts of your furnace, which may circulate around your home as the furnace pushes out hot air. These contaminants can include bacteria, dander, pollen and other potentially harmful toxins, which could pose a health risk if left to go unchecked.

Cheaper Utility Bills

Looking beyond the health aspect, regularly cleaning your furnace can also help you keep the power bill low. How? Well, as dust and grime build up and starts to clog the duct, the furnace is unable to produce a strong airflow, which ultimately impacts its overall efficiency and in turn may increase your energy consumption. Using a furnace duct cleaning service in Airdrie ensures your furnace is operating at maximum efficiency and can help keep your electricity bills low.

 

Keep Your Furnace Running Safely

While most reputable name brand furnaces will run for years and years without issue, the fact remains that the parts are always subject to wear and tear and will eventually break down. The build up of dirt on electronic switches and other furnace components may accelerate this process, which could lead to expensive repairs further down the track. Removing contaminants from the duct of your furnace helps keep your furnace in good condition and reduces the risk of bigger issues developing.

More Comfortable Temperatures

Finally, using a duct cleaner in Calgary to remove dirt from your furnace’s conduits allows your furnace to function more efficiently. This means your furnace is better able to produce the heat needed to keep your home at a comfortable temperature and create a cozy environment over the chilly Canadian winter.

If you require a professional furnace duct cleaning service in Airdrie, Calgary or any of the surrounding areas, we’d love to hear from you. With a strong focus on results and unrivaled customer satisfaction, our expert technicians use a state of the art suction system that has been carefully engineered to remove as much debris as possible from the ducts of your furnace. To book a clean or to learn more about our services, give the friendly team a call today on 403-984-3680.

Spring Cleaning Hacks for Your Carpet

Four Carpet Cleaning Tips

Spring is right around the corner, bringing with it warmer weather, longer days and the perfect opportunity to give your house a good spring cleaning.

It goes without saying that this will probably involve a thorough scrub down of your kitchen and bathroom, but remember to pay special attention to your carpets, too. Taking a proactive approach to carpet maintenance can help keep them looking beautiful for years to come while improving the overall hygiene of your home.

Dang Good is seen as one of the leading carpet cleaning companies in Calgary, we’re well versed in what it takes to keep carpets in pristine condition. Here are four of our favorite carpet cleaning hacks:

1. Use Baking Soda to Remove Stains

Baking soda is renowned for being able to clean a variety of surfaces and carpet is no exception. While it isn’t quite as powerful at removing stains as steam cleaning in Airdrie, baking soda is reasonably effective at combating blemishes and discolorations. Simply sprinkle some baking soda over the stained area, mist it with some hot water and allow it to sit damp overnight. In the morning, vacuum the baking soda up and the stain should be gone!

2. Pick Up Pet Hair With a Squeegee

We couldn’t live without our pets, but there’s no denying that our four-legged friends are not great for our carpets. If your vacuum cleaner struggles to pick up the pet hair lodged in your carpet, it might be time to try a completely different type of cleaning tool: a squeegee. Give the squeegee a good rinse to remove any existing grime, run it along the carpet and watch as it effortlessly pulls the hair from the carpet.

3. Embrace the Lint Roller

It’s no secret that lint rollers are great for removing loose fibres from your clothes, but you may not be aware that they can also be used to cleanse your carpet to a level that most commercial vacuum cleaners can’t compete with. Do keep in mind that it takes a fair bit of time and effort to lint roll your carpet (particularly if it’s a big area), so in some cases it may be easier to opt for professional carpet cleaning in Calgary.

4. Fluff Your Carpet With Ice

If your furniture has been resting on the same spot for a while, the carpet has probably developed unsightly dents. The good news is that this is reversible. Place an ice cube in the dent, allow it to completely melt and then use a soft towel to gently blot up the water. Place the towel over the dent and run an iron across the towel until the carpet is nearly dry. Finally, let the carpet air dry and manually fluff up the fibres using your hands.

DIY methods are a great way to keep your carpets healthy, but for best results, you should call in the experts.

Dishwasher Cleaning Hack

Simple Dishwasher Cleaning Solution

You would think that if Dishwashers clean dishes then surely they would essentially clean themselves. Unfortunately that is often not the case. Unfortunately Grime and Scale build up which can affect the efficiency of your Dishwasher. There is a cheap solution however.

When you have a recipe that calls for lemon juice, don’t throw away that lemon peel. Instead, add it to the dishwasher with those dirty dishes. The citric acid in the fruit naturally cleans the dishwasher, helping to dissolve scum and built up soap residue. It will also help disinfect and will leave a fresh clean scent. You could put the lemon on the top shelve or the cutlery compartment as long as it is away for the heating element.

How to Clean a Coffee Grinder

When obviously, you can’t put an Electric Coffee Grinder in the Dishwasher and it’s risky to clean those sharp blades by hand, grind up some uncooked rice. It will help with lingering smells.

Then clean it by grinding 15ml of Baking Soda. Follow that with a good but careful wipe. You should end up with a Coffee Grinder looking as good as the day you bought it.

Some other uses for your Grinder besides Coffee

  • Breadcrumbs – Make breadcrumbs by adding some slices of bread
  • Powered Sugar – Grind up Granulated Sugar to make Icing Sugar
  • Flaxseed – Buy and Store Flaxseed whole and then grind them as needed
  • Homemade Flour – Grind Almonds for Almond Flour or use other nuts for a variety of healthy flour options
  • Herbs – Dry out those herbs from the garden and then grind them for use in various recipes
  • Paper Confetti – Add some small sheets of colored paper and be ready for the next wedding invite.
