You may know that scratches, burns, and water stains can all affect the appearance of your hardwood floors, but have you ever considered how sunlight changes the color? Especially during the summer months, when the sun is shining brightly and your windows are open, these rays can take a toll on both your wooden floors and carpeting. One of the most apparent signs of sun damage is uneven coloring in either your hardwood or carpeting.
Sunlight damages your floor as it passes through the windows into your home, so one of the best ways to avoid damage is by installing sheer drapes. If you enjoy having natural sunlight in your house, you don’t need to keep the drapes closed every minute of the day. Instead just be sure to close your drapes when no one is at home like during the day when you are at work.

Hardwood floors are one of the oldest building materials used to enhance the appearance of homes. However, this natural floor surface is vulnerable to scrapes, scratches, and dents, especially in high-traffic areas. Luckily, homeowners can repair most of this damage simply by sanding, smoothing, and refinishing the surface.
Moving furniture and having a pet in your home can both lead to scratches in your hardwood floor. The treatment for this kind of damage will depend on the size and depth of the scratch. For minor scratches, you can restore the appearance of your wooden flooring by filling in the area with a crayon of the same shade. For more serious scratches you will need to remove the wax from the damaged area and fill in the deep scratch with putty. Once the putty dries, you can sand and reseal the floor.
Just like your wooden coffee table forms a ring when exposed to the water of a beverage, your wooden floors can also develop water stains. If you notice a water spill, you should immediately wipe it up before it gets the chance to settle into your wooden floors. To remove water stains, you need to remove all of the wax and finish from the area so that you can rub away the stain with a steel wool pad and liquid floor wax.
It may seem unlikely, but burns can be quite common in hardwood flooring. Anything from a lit cigarette to a warm cookies sheet can cause a burn mark to appear on your hardwood flooring. If you do notice a minor burn mark, you can sand it away and wipe the area clean before refinishing your flooring. More serious burns may require you to replace a portion of your hardwood flooring.

Your home’s air can be full of natural contaminants that exacerbate allergies. From pet dander to pollen and pests, keeping these allergens under control is the key to better health for you and your family. Hiring a professional cleaning service to flush out air ducts and clean carpets or rugs can make a large difference in your health and comfort within the walls of your own home.
Dust mites are the most common allergen found within the home, causing reactions in almost half of children who suffer from asthma. These microscopic organisms accumulate in humid, dusty areas of your home, so regular dusting and vacuuming are a must. If you have asthma, more severe dust mite allergies, or simply don’t have the time to maintain a dust-free home, a regular cleaning service can provide much-needed assistance.
Pollen enters your home through windows, vents, and doors. It may be tracked in on your clothing, shoes, or even your pet’s feet and fur. Once inside, pollen circulates throughout your home via your heating and cooling system, making it difficult for those with allergies to find relief indoors. Scheduling a professional cleaning of your air ducts once a year can prevent buildup and recirculation of pollen within your home.
Pet dander is comprised of microscopic flakes of dead skin that are shed naturally. This common allergen accumulates in your home if you have a dog, cat, or other animal. Because dander is small and lightweight, it can circulate throughout your home like dust or pollen. Regular cleaning of your home, carpets, and forced air systems can prevent dander from becoming a problem for those with pet allergies.
