A Dang Good Blog

A Dang Good Blog

A Dang Good Cleaning Blog of Advice, Hacks, Tips, Snippets and more…

Introduction

In naming this Cleaning Blog: “A Dang Good Blog" we don’t mean to be presumptuous. It is meant in a lighthearted and tongue-in-cheek way.

“Dang Good” is simply in keeping with our business name. Nevertheless, we seriously hope in time, this blog will well and truly live up to its name.

This Blog is written by Karen Norman. She is Co-Owner of Dang Good Carpet and Furnace Cleaning. To find out more about her, visit our About Page.

Types of Posts

In this Dang Good Blog, we will post the following:

  • Dang Good News – We want to keep you updated on our latest news. At the same time, we hope to shed some light on our philosophy, vision and passion for our business. In addition, we will try to bring you some insights into the business of cleaning.
  • Cleaning Tips and Cleaning Hacks – We hope to provide you with some helpful cleaning tips and tricks for your home and garden. We will include tips not just about Carpets, Upholstery, Furnaces, and Ducts but all sorts of other valuable cleaning hacks. For example, we’ll try to get into some stain removal tips. We will also take a look at area rugs.
  • Other Hacks – We will also include other practical and interesting household and organization hacks. Hopefully, they will help enhance the enjoyment of your home and give you the tools needed to be effective doing your household chores.
  • Snippets of Information – This will include some fun and occasionally informative insights such as National Hug a Tree Day, as some call it or National Beer Day – a favourite for many. My favourite national day is National Wine Day observed in May each year. We do not have a post about that at the time of writing but expect to see one eventually.
  • And of course… all things pertaining to a Carpet CleaningFurnace and Duct Cleaning, Tile Cleaning and a Window Cleaning Business. Not the least of which would include information about ways to eliminate dust,  improve indoor air quality and sanitize your home.

As time goes on, our blog categories may change. For example, we have found a strong connection between pets, carpets, and stains. So naturally, Pets as a category is likely to get added very soon.

We hope to make our blog fun and informative and (obviously) Dang Good. We sure hope you will enjoy it. If you have suggestions (polite ones, please), let us know. If it is congruent with what we are about, we will do our best to include the topic.

Did You Know...

  1. The word: “Blog” is short for “Weblog.” It’s an Online Journal of sorts. A Journal is an excellent way for us to keep you informed about the progress of our Carpet, Furnace and Window Cleaning Business.
  2. A couple of interesting Cleaning Blogs, if just for the name alone, are:
    A Slob Comes Clean
    A Bowl Full of Lemons
  3. We have a Facebook Group called Dang Good Cleaning Hacks and Organizing Hacks.
  4. We have a Pinterest Board called: Dang Good Clean: Cleaning Hacks & Organizing Hacks.
  5. We have an X (Twitter) Community called: Dang Good Cleaning Hacks

Feel free to share our Dang Good Blog.
