Fun Phrase Friday: “For Crying Out Loud”

Happy Friday!
This weeks fun phrase is “For crying out loud!”

Meaning: Oh, for heaven’s sake; what your saying (or doing) is preposterous.

History: The saying is a euphemism (also describable as a minced oath) for “For Christ’s sake!” and seems to have coined, probably in the United States, about 90 years ago.

 

Fun Phrase Friday: Be Of Good Cheer

Happy Friday!!
This weeks fun phrase is ” Be of good cheer”

Meaning: Go well; Don’t worry.

History: The expression appears twice in the New Testament (Matthew 14:27 and John 16:33) both times a statement by Jesus. In Matthew, when the disciples see Jesus walking on the sea, they are frightened. He says, ” Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.” And John records him saying, in his last long talk with the disciples,” Theses things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

The Shower Dilemma

The Shower Dilemma

The job of your shower or bathtub is to keep you and your family clean… yet you might have noticed that the shower or bathtub themselves are in need of attention from time to time.

The problem is a common one. You combine soap residue with hard water and the resulting challenge is a build-up on the walls of the shower, the fixtures and more. It can be an ugly, difficult-to-clean mess! Sometimes, the shower and bath seem to be dirtier than you…

The solution is also a common one, pretty easy to accomplish, if you have the right tools.

A somewhat misleading concoction some think works for cleaning shower stalls and bath fixtures is to mix vinegar with ammonia and add a few other ingredients. The problem with that is the vinegar and ammonia cancel each other out in regards to the acidity and alkalinity of the products. Remember that the “crud” on the tile and tub need acidity to remove them… thus the idea of using a vinegar or acidic solution.

The solution? Create your own cleaning agent using vinegar, a drop of Dawn Dish Soap (or similar product) with super-hot water. You will need a trigger sprayer or small pump-up sprayer. Apply the home-made concoction liberally over all the areas that need to be cleaned. Allow at least 5 minutes of contact time (the more the better) and then rinse.  You may need to repeat the application of the vinegar, dish soap and hot water.

Using vinegar is safe. Don’t use a harsh acid (such as a rust removing product) in place of vinegar. The chemical reaction and resulting residue from using a strong acid can be harmful to your skin or the skin of your family.

Don’t forget that a little elbow grease may be necessary to get the job done right. The soap scum and mineral deposits can be very tough to remove. But with the right amount of cleaning solutions along with your own scrubbing efforts, your shower dilemma will be over.

Of course, for all your cleaning needs, from carpet to upholstery to tile floors and more, call your favorite cleaning pro, A Clean Pro 760-245-5556 !

So Your Carpet Is Smelly…

So Your Carpet Is Smelly…

There are many reasons why a carpet can become smelly, from pet odors to heavy soiling and other causes. However, what some don’t realize is a little water intrusion can cause a big problem with the condition of their carpet, even after it seems the carpet has dried.

Water intrusions can be from many sources. If it is from a toilet (raw sewage), it’s almost always best to discard the carpet and pad and get something new. While doing that, be sure the subfloor is also cleaned and disinfected appropriately, and sealed if necessary. If it is from an overflowing sink or a leaky pipe, the damage can usually be limited so purchasing new flooring isn’t always necessary.

But one of the biggest problems is waiting too long no matter the cause of the water damage in your home.

When you discover a wet carpet or rug, it’s time to get to work. Remove the water with extraction, and get some air movement and ventilation started on removing moisture.

However, here’s the problem. If the carpet isn’t dried really fast, like how professional water damage experts can dry carpet using their specialized tools and equipment, a persistent musty smell can develop. There’s not much a homeowner can do to fix that issue. In the winter months, when humidity is low, you may not notice the odor that much. But when summer arrives, with the higher humidity, those odors will come back with a vengeance.

Even worse, mold can begin to grow. No one wants potentially dangerous mold in their homes!

What’s the best solution? Call A Clean Pro, your water damage pros right away, before real damage sets it. We will be right over to save the day! 760-245-5556!

Fun Phrase Friday: A Little Bird Told Me

Happy Friday!

This weeks phrase is ” A Little Bird told me..”

Meaning: Information was given from a source that will not be revealed.

History: The origin of the thought but not quite the saying comes from The Bible in Ecclesiastes 10:20, “Curse not the king, no, not in thy thought: and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for the bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter. “Brian Melbancke was close to the modern form in Philotimus (1583): ” I had a little bird, that brought me newes of it.”
