Cut the wicks on your Yankee Candles!

You may find this story hard to believe!  We had a customer recently that had just turned on her heating unit for the first time earlier this season.  When we arrived to clean, we found a black soot on much of her furniture, ceiling, lamp shades, and window sills. She had no idea what had happened or when.  After calling a specialist to check her duct system and heating unit, it was found that it was from burning her Yankee candles too long and from not cutting off the mushroom top wicks! She was on a daily basis lighting her candles without cutting the wicks, starting around 3pm and did not put them out until she would get ready for bed.  After time, it caused a build up in her heating system and when she turned on the heat for the first time of the season, it all blew out!
Leason learned....cut your wicks before lighting your candles, and they should not burn for no longer than 2 to 3 hours.


After much research, we have found that Orange Glo Hardwood Floor Cleaner in the green bottle is not good for hardwood floors as they promise!  It leaves a tremendous residue behind that will eventually build up to a dull white haze!  We are researching further to find a way to have this residue completely removed.  About 2 years ago, this product was recommended to everyone for a great shine to your hardwood floors.  Now, I recommend you THROW IT OUT!

Does your pet hair get spread around when you mop?

Here is a little tip for those of you that have a lot of pet hair on your floors.
Before you start any type of cleaning that would cause you to get water or cleaning products on the floor, you should start off with a quick vacuuming.  It is easier when it comes to mopping if you get the hair up before it gets stuck to the floor from liquids!  A hairy mop is a nightmare to really clean your floors, and will drive me crazy spreading hair all over the floor and never being able to get it up!  It may take a few extra minutes to vacuum once before you wipe things onto the floor and then vacuum again.  Believe me, that few extra minutes saves time in the long run when it comes to mopping!

Tile Grout Cleaning the Old Fashion Way

Of course you could hire a well known big business to come to your home with their expensive machinery and be in and out in a quick manner; and charge you and outrageous price! If you are not worried about money then this may be your best option.
Then there is the Coole Cleaners way!  It may be old fashioned to get down on your hands and knees, but we do not use expensive equiptment. We use a bleach based product, a grout bristle brush and a little elbow grease. It successfully leaves your grout looking like new, and the price is half of the big business prices!

Glogged Drain?

The Turbo Snake that you have seen on TV really works.  I used it to unglogg a customers bathroom sink and it did the job!  You can find them at the Dollar General stores for I think $10.
