KickAs Carpet Cleaner In A Can

Our new Spray Foam "KickAss Carpet Cleaner In A Can" will be here in a few weeks. 
We use this stuff all the time to maintain the carpet in our showroom. We intentionally installed regular residential inexpensive carpet in our store about 4 or 5 years ago just so we could show customers how to properly maintain their carpets. For the last five years we have been using encapsulating dry foam carpet cleaner to keep the nap lifted, remove soil, keep them smelling fresh and looking great. In my opinion (In this business for 30 Years . Own Two vacuum Cleaner stores and a Professional Carpet Cleaning Company with Thousands of satisfied customers) It is, without a doubt, the most cost effective, best way to keep the carpet clean and looking great!
Takes about 10 Minutes and less than $10 to get an entire room of carpet looking great and smelling fresh!

Check out these pictures - can you tell which section we just cleaned with a Can of KickAss carpet Cleaner?

What To Look For In A Vacuum Cleaner

Posted by John Gregory on Sat, Apr 30, 2011 @ 12:04 PM

 

Want to Make Sure You're Getting the Best Value?

Of course you do. Look - you'll be vacuuming your home for years to come. Shouldn't you get a vacuum that will last? Shouldn't you buy one that will save you money in the long run?

We think so. That's why we've assembled five tips for evaluating a vacuum purchase. 

1. How Well Does it Clean?

All vacuums are not created equal. Does yours really get the dirt and dust out? Make sure to ask your salesperson just how well it gets the dirt out of your carpet, and the grunge off your floor.

2. How Easy is it to Use?

The vacuum you buy should be tailored to your needs. It should be easy to use for every task you need to accomplish.

For example, do you need to clean multiple types of surfaces? Or maybe you need to clean cobwebs off the ceiling? If so, make sure you get something flexible enough to adapt to every surface.

It's all about making sure a vacuum does what you need it to do.

3. How Long Will it Last?

You'll be vacuuming for years to come. Why throw away your money on a vacuum you'll have to replace in 18 months? Shouldn't you have a vacuum that's covered by a great warranty? One that will clean well for years?

Make sure to ask your salesperson how well a vacuum will be cleaning in a few years. If he's not sure, maybe you're not shopping at the right place.

Ask about the warranty, too. Is one available? Does the vacuum need to be shipped somewhere just to get repaired?

If so, maybe you should reconsider your purchase. We offer a great warranty on all of our products. We keep every part you can think of right here on hand, and we service all of our vacuums on the premises. That means you have less downtime and less cost. We'll even loan you one of our own vacuums until we have yours repaired and working like new!

Try to get that kind of service from a department store.


4. Does it Make The Air in Your Home Cleaner or Dirtier?

Air quality is a major health concern, especially in homes with children or senior citizens. And your vacuum could be contributing to the problem.

Make sure to ask your salesperson - "Does the dirt stay in the machine?" Listen for an answer that includes HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arrest) filters. These filters must pass a test that certifies them to remove 99.97% of potentially hazardous particles from the air. Without HEPA filters, you can't be sure how much dust your vacuum is just blowing back out into the air you breathe.

If your salesperson doesn't talk about HEPA filters, maybe you should get a second opinion.


5. Where Should You Purchase It?

No vacuum is indestructible. Make sure to buy yours from a shop that can service it and supply it with the parts you need, even years down the road.

That's the kind of service that we're proud to provide. We have our own experienced repair staff who will work on your vacuum right in our service department. We make sure they have all the parts and tools they need to get the job done right and in a timely manner.

We make sure to keep replacement parts for years down the line. All to make certain that no matter how long ago you bought your vacuum, we can make it run like new.

You won't get that from a "big box" store. That's the kind of service you'll only get from a dedicated local vacuum shop.
