We at Cincinnati Maintenance are Thankful….for YOU!

Thank you!

It’s hard to believe it’s already time for Thanksgiving! We at Cincinnati Maintenance have a lot to be thankful for….and we are especially thankful for YOU, our customers!
We have been blessed with a wonderful set of loyal customers and are thankful for the new ones we are meeting every day.
It’s been especially heartening to have some really great reviews left for us throughout the year.  Some of our favorites:

  • Ed and Cincinnati Maintenence are the best carpet cleaners I have ever used. We have dogs and after they were finished all spots of mud and other matter was gone and the carpets smelled fresh and clean, not like chemicals. They are professional and on time and more than fair in pricing.  – Linda
  • Cincinnati Maintenance came out today & did some serious magic on our sectional! Two teenage boys & two mastiffs did their best to make it impossible but no match for these guys. Polite/professional and not too bad on the checkbook – will definitely use them again. – Missy
  • Cincinnati Maintenance and Eddie Susshine are amazing!!! Our dog was very sick and vomited several times on our cream carpet. We could not get the stains out. So we called Eddie and they came right out and had the stains gone with an hour! Carpet looks brand new again! We can’t thank you enough!!! – Mary
  • Eddie and his crew came out and did a fantastic job on our carpets and were ultra professional. Super highly recommend!! – Wally

We humbly thank you and look forward to serving you for years to come. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Should You Clean Before the Holidays….or After?

Should You Clean Before the Holidays....or After?

Have you ever wondered, should I have my carpet and upholstery professionally cleaned before the holidays….or after?
Well, that depends. First of all, are you having guests in for the holidays?  If you have noticeable stains on the carpet…..it would be nice to clean those before your guests arrive.
If you have pets who sometimes have accidents, a professional cleaning can get rid of stains, odors, and even keep your pet from revisiting that old familiar spot – because they no longer smell where they’ve “been” before.
Are your guests going to be bunking on the couch? Yep, go ahead and get that cleaned and fresh-smelling, too.
BUT……if your carpets, rugs and furniture are in good, clean shape, there ARE reasons to wait until AFTER the holidays to have a professional cleaning.
For example, if your guests are bringing small children, you will inevitably have extra spills. Are they bringing pets, as well? Be prepared for an accident or two.
Or, if you’re having the biggest party of the year at your house…..maybe, just maybe, waiting until after your holiday party is the best time for a profesional to get things back to normal again.
Things to think about….you want to get the best bang for your buck.

Cold and Flu Season Is Soon Upon Us!

Cold and Flu Season Is Soon Upon Us!

Cold and flu season is soon upon us! And other nasty bugs abound during this time of year, too.  Did you know the norovirus can live on a carpet’s uncleaned surface for a month or more? Ugh.  Illness is inevitable – kids bring home germs from school, there’s lots of get-togethers and parties for the holidays where you’re around more people, and even more people are out grocery shopping to buy for the holiday feasts — touching those grocery carts. Eww.
No one can completely avoid every illness that goes around, but keeping your business or home as clean as possible clean can sure go a long way in preventative care!
Last January we blogged about how we are frequently asked how often to clean the carpets in businesses such as medical clinics or daycares. Here is our rule of thumb: Certain types of businesses need the carpets cleaned more often than others.  For instance, daycares could benefit from weekly or twice-per-month cleaning because small children are crawling around and constantly put things that have been on the floor in their mouths.  Hopefully no one is putting anything in their mouth that’s been on the doctor’s office floor, but, nevertheless, every one-to-three months is good timing for medical facilities to have a deep floor clean.  During pandemic or a time of especially hard-hitting viruses, obviously more often can only benefit the reduction of germs.
Homeowners may want to consider some extra cleaning during “sickness season,” too.  A couple of tips for the home:

  • An area that is often overlooked is tile and grout.  Those grooves and crevices of tile and grout floors can get really gross and germy, too.  Don’t forget that these areas need deep, professional cleaning, too.
  • If you have someone in your home who suffers from allergies or asthma, vacuum regularly and considering professional cleaning more often. Read more about carpet cleaning versus allergies here.

Cincinnati Maintenance cares about our customers, their homes and their businesses. While we obviously can’t say we prevent illness, professional cleaning can be a powerful tool to help combat it!
