...And Too All a Good Clean Holiday Season

Holiday time means – family get togethers, lots of excitement, hustle and bustle, splishes and splashes, Grandma dropping the turkey leg... but no worries the dog has it on the sofa in the living room.

Dad yelling “get off the couch” as he tries to reach over to grab the bone. Cuddles then climbing onto the coffee table knocking two glasses of wine and a coffee onto the new area rug.

Mom screaming "everybody stop" and yelling her favorite “F” word – "Somebody call Fibermark!!  Nobody touch the spots.  Here is a roll of paper towels, Mark has always said just blot – blot – blot, do not scrub!  Grandma, if you don’t want to lose the hand – stop right there.  Do not pour anything, your just going to make it worse."

Carolyn, her BFF is Googling remedies for what to do.  Again, Mom yelling at Carolyn to stop and grab a roll of towels. "Blot – blot – blot!!  That is all we are doing", as she texts Randy and Mark to make sure they know to come tomorrow morning and make everything like it never happened.

Randy and mark both text back to Carolyn, "you’ve done great!  Please go back to your guests and party and get a  good nights rest.  We will be there early to make sure we leave no trace of your guests."

Not quite a National Lampoon's Christmas movie but pretty darn close to a typical Holiday Season at FibermarkMTC where we have served your cleaning needs since 1963.

Thanks for your business and your trust from all of us here at FibermarkMTC.

If you are going to work on something yourself, at least take our advice…

  1. Do not pour anything on the spot. The goal is to remove the substance or liquid, not add to it.
  2. Do not rub or scrub the spot. You may get the spot out but you may also ruin the nap or distort the texture.
  3. Store bought items frequently cause serious problems, because people automatically pour cleaners onto the spot without removing the substance first.
  4. We recommend a wet / dry vacuum that you should keep in the home for emergencies. This will help remove substances and liquids. We have these vacuums in stock for purchase at our plant. We also have a product we sell to spot your carpets.
  5. When you have the vacuum, you can use it first to vacuum up the liquids and substance. the vacuum will help you avoid the above mentioned difficulties.
  6. If you do not own a wet / dry vacuum, use a large soup spoon and a bowl. Carefully scrape at the carpet to remove any liquid, substance or residue that you can.
  7. Now you are ready to call us for immediate advice on what to do next.
  8. You may not have been able to get everything out, but at the very least our advice may help you avoid ruining your carpets and fabrics
