You’d be amazed at just how much upholstery in the United States spends it’s whole life with out a good bath. Studies show that less than 10% ever gets a professional cleaning in it’s life time.

Just imagine wearing the same pair of jeans or a shirt for years and years and not ever washing it…..Some times our favorite recliner is also our bed and lunch room….Yikees!  We eat and fall asleep in our favorite chair. Or maybe one of your four legged Buddies also shares your favorite chair with you…..or maybe, just maybe that favorite piece of furniture has been the “necessary room”  for your pet while you have been away at work….(Naw not my boy dog!….wanna bet?).

Now look at the Sofa or Recliner in your family room or how about those Dining Room chairs your raised your family on?

Isn’t it time to do some laundry?

Carpet cleaning client recommends Hydrogen Peroxide

lens2926272_1235779008Hydrogen_Peroxide_Whiten_Teeth

I really like the carpet cleaning business. One of the reasons is that I meet some really interesting people. Recently I cleaned carpet for Mr. Lindquist, a retired chemist who holds 17 world wide patents. It’s really neat to meet and talk with such amazing people!  He and I started discussing the powers and properties of H2O2, or as it is commonly known, Hydrogen Peroxide. Mr. Lindquist made several observations and I concurred with him that with this one chemical you can clean your teeth, have sparkling dishes emerge from your dishwasher, treat cuts and wounds, plus hundreds of other uses. As a professional, trained carpet cleaner, we use H2O2 to help remove stubborn organic stains such as pet stains, or help in removing odors.

Today is Veterans Day—A day to remember and honor those who  have served our country. While cleaning carpets over the years, I have had the good fortune to meet many people who served in WWII– People who “Flew the Hump” ……Fighter pilots, bomber pilots.   I noticed while carpet cleaning in  Orange City, Florida one gentleman  still displays his leather jacket that was issued to pilots of that era.   My Dad was a crew chief on B 24 Liberators, serving in Italy and the north coast of Africa…..here’s a picture of the B-24.

B24 Liberator

B24 Liberator WWII

My closest cousin John R. Martin of Deland,  served in the Army Air Corps and later the Coast Guard….he was the youngest personnel officer in the military at that time.    One of my best friend’s father, Morris Wender  flew on a B17 as a navigator, where he was injured on a mission.  One of my mentors in the carpet cleaning industry  Mr Bill Bane served in the Marines during WWII.

I loved Air Force ROTC during my college years, but flat feet & eyesight kept me from continuing in the military.  The Vietnam War claimed many of my generation and left many veterans changed forever…hopefully we as a nation will always honor and cherish the men and women who defend our freedom, no matter the political views or opinions about the particular conflict in which they are engaged.

Another War, the Gulf war in 1990 another best friend, Bob Iddings  served in the Air Force on C 130?s and was deployed to the middle east several times–he says he has seen all of tent life that he wants to see– He is now a pilot for Delta and I would hope to have a pilot like him when I am a passenger.

As I think about this, the list continues to grow of cousins and friends who have served in the military during conflict and during peacetime…..doing their jobs so I could go about my life untouched…

My Hat is off to all who serve now and to all the VETERANS who served their country, my country, the greatest country in the world—the USA!!!!

Hugh Downs with Bill Martin, Owner of All Pro Carpet Cleaners, Deland, FL

My wife and I recently attended an industry trade show and workshop in Phoenix, Arizona.  Over five hundred carpet /restoration cleaners from around the world attended.   The video/audio of the  event was also simulcast live over the internet around the world to an even larger number of cleaners who could not attend the event in person.  This event was attended by some of the carpet cleaner industry’s  ”movers and shakers”.  One of the keynote speakers was Hugh Downs.  Mr Downs’ career on TV was very successful as he served  as host of the NBC Today Show and was co-anchor for 20/20 for a number of years.  Mr Downs also is an accomplished musician and sail plane pilot.   Mr Downs recounted one story to the audience about his “most” difficult interview.    Seems he was interview a world renowned religious leader from another country on live TV.  Mr. Downs did his homework and was ready for the interview.    Mr Downs said he asked several  questions and the religious leader would just smile with each question and say nothing, as would the interpreter!   Filming live to network TV stations around the country, Mr. Downs   had to ad lib in order to fill out the allotted time  for the segment with no help from his subject!  After the silent interview, Mr. Downs found out that the religious leader being interviewed did not speak English and brought his own interpreter, but  it seems the night before the interview was to take place the  English-speaking interpreter got sick and so in his place sent his brother to help with the interview.  Of course, you guessed it–the “interpreter” did not speak English either!  Some of you might say what does this have to do with the carpet cleaning business??  The meat of Mr Down’s message to the group of carpet cleaners was that you must always be prepared and hone your skills to meet any challenges you might face in life….be it business or in your personal life.  To always look to the bright side of life and not to focus on the negative.  You could hear a pin drop as Mr Downs spoke…those of you that have heard him speak over the years on TV, you never forget that voice.  After his speech he was greeted by  thunderous applause from the audience.  My take on all of this?  The mind is a valuable thing to waste.  You could feel the energy and positive attitude in the room as Mr Downs spoke.  Everyone who left the room that day felt up- lifted and was inspired to go back to their own life, their own business  as a business owner, as a carpet cleaner, as an office worker in a carpet cleaning business,  as a family member and be the best that they could be in what ever they did in life.  My wife (my business partner) and I felt very fortunate to have met this industry giant of the TV/news world and feel motivated to do our best!
