Carpets are found in nearly every home and office as they reduce noise levels significantly. No matter how hard you try, eventually the carpet will become a victim of spills, drips and accidental dirt. However, by implementing these carpet cleaning tips your carpet will look its best for longer in between that essential professional clean.
When liquid is spilled onto the carpet blot it up with a soft towel, cloth or paper. But be sure to blot from the outside towards the centre so the stain doesn’t spread.
Never rub the carpet as this can break the fibres and spread the dirt.
An air-conditioning unit that is functioning well can save you a lot of discomfort in hot and cold weather. Just like a car, these units need to be serviced regularly to get the best bang for your buck and ensure they last as long as they are meant to. Major servicing should only be done by a professional. In between this, you can clean out the filters and make sure there are no grass stems, bushes or any other rubbish growing up around the external part.
Cleaning the filters is not difficult; it is reaching up to them that is the hardest part. Use a safe ladder and always wear shoes that fit well, not house slippers when you get on the ladder.
With an increasing number of people moving into country areas on small acreage, there comes a need for training about caring for the animals they have on their hobby farm. Even though it’s a hobby, such a farm really needs some type of security fencing to keep the stock safe from wandering onto the road.
This doesn’t have to be the same kind that you would find in the city. The kind of fence for a hobby farm would depend on what kind of animals were kept. 4-5 strands of barbed wire will keep cattle in, but horses would be likely to injure themselves on it because of their flighty nature. They tend to kick out when frightened and if they do it near the barbed wire it could result in nasty cuts.
