Freshen the Carpets WHILE You Vacuum

Want a nice fresh scent added to your carpet while vacuuming? Here are a few tips on how to achieve it...

  • Add a fabric softener sheet the bag or cannister of your vacuum cleaner.
  • Add a few drops of natural essential oil or even a spray of perfume to the vacuum cleaner bag or cannister! Yes, people might look at you funny if they see you spraying your vacuum with perfume, but just ignore them. They're probably judgmental types anyway.
  • Sprinkle some baking soda liberally on the carpets before you vacuum, and then let the baking soda sit and do its natural odor removing work for about fifteen minutes or so. When you vacuum as usual you'll suck away dirt and muck - and a lot of nasty pet or smoke odors!

I also like to put dried lavender flowers in with the baking soda -- I keep a big shaker of it... then I sprinkle on the carpet and let sit as suggested, and then vacuum it up. This works very well, and eliminates the need to put scent in the bag, as the flowers do the job when you vacuum them up~

That's a lovely idea. I just adore lavender, don't you?

This sounds like a pretty cool tip, but does it still work with newer bag less vacuums. I know you mentioned putting it in your canister but with HEPA filters and allergy and asthma friendly vacuums not much escapes them anymore.

Also is there any chance that adding extra elements to my cleaner my void my warranty?

Maid Service Atlanta - Amazon Cleaning said...

The way to get to the heart of the problem is better technology. Here is our press release regarding HEPA, a newer green wave that makes a lot of sense. The owners of Amazon Cleaning have decided to become Green Cleaning compliant by end of January 2009. A key centerpiece to new corporate
strategy is to become HEPA compliant. HEPA stands for high efficiency particulate air and is a vital policy change that will prevent cross contamination from customer to customer household.
Atlanta House Cleaning has evolved over the past 20 years from necessity and lack of dependable labor. As a result, the service is hit or miss and majority of maid services in Atlanta are not well run. As a result Amazon Cleaning decided to strive for a much higher operational tempo and service standards since its inception. Instead of taking company profits,
they are continually reinvested with one single focus, customer retention. So far that strategy has paid off with continual customer growth and employee retention. Regarding Green Cleaning, the word on the street is it is not effective as older traditional cleaning agents. Based on customer feedback, nothing could be further from the truth. The upside of HEPA and Green Compliance are, 99.7 % dust and particle capture per residential cleaning. Reduced chemicals impacting children, pets and adults. Along with the obvious environmentally friendly byproduct. To be fair to Atlanta House Cleaning client base, Gomes Cleaning will still offer traditional cleaning agents. However, based on initial customer feedback, we anticipate the industry will be moving toward higher green energy standards. Lastly, HEPA compliance is not cheap. Many of the vacuum units cost over $500.00 to put into the field. The filters are also significantly more expensive. Because of this, the trend will be slow as many cleaning companies have chosen to not put the customers health first but instead go for the most profitability they can. Atlanta House Cleaning has chosen to invest in the future and banking on increased quality will lead to longer term customer base and growth.
