Stain Removal on Linens

 

stain removalLinens can instantly enhance a room by adding warmth, color, texture and an element of style. But keeping those sheets, towels, duvets, comforters and blankets in pristine condition can be a Herculean task.

Whether they come from coffee, wine, food, make-up or even blood, stains don’t have to mean the end of the line for your favorite linens. Time, patience and a commitment to taking care of your linens are all you need to save them from the rag bag (or the trash).

Bed Bugs Make Bad Travel Buddies

bed bug protectionHotels are bed bug hives.

Okay, so this description is going to sound unflattering to those who work in the hospitality industry.  But for pest control professionals, it’s difficult to view hotels the way the rest of society sees hotels. After all, hotels solicit the services of pest control professionals more than most people would guess (or care to know).

While some hotels don’t clean enough or educate their staff about spotting bed bugs, most establishments have bed bug problems because of factors outside of their control. Simply put, hotels can’t search their guests’ luggage, find out their cleaning habits, or examine individual articles of clothing, all of which are prime causes of bed bug outbreaks.
