How to Care for Your Marble Tile Flooring

How to Care for Your Marble Tile Flooring
Marble comes in a variety of colors and patterns, and has quickly become a favorite for shower stalls, counter tops and tile flooring. Caring for your marble tile flooring is essential to keep it shiny, clean, and protected from damages. Here are some tips for marble tile cleaning to help protect your flooring.


Clean Daily
Marble can end up dirty very quickly. The best thing to do is clean the tiles on a daily basis, using just gentle soapy water. If you use harsh chemicals, you will scratch and damage the top of the tiles. The only time you can use something stronger is if it is specifically designed for marble.
Use a soft mop when cleaning the flooring. This helps to avoid scratches and scuff marks.
Before you use the soapy water, brush up all the dirt on the floor. This prevents any abrasive materials getting stuck in the mop.


Seal the Marble
When you first get your marble, you need to make sure it is sealed. This will help to repel water and you’ll see it bead. While cleaning your marble tile, keep an eye on how the water reacts. When it stops beading and starts soaking into the tile, you’ll need to get the marble sealed again. This helps to protect the underside and will keep your tile flat.


Use Gentle Stain Treatments
Sometimes marble stains, so you always wipe up any spills as quickly as possible to prevent staining. When you spot a stain, use a gentle treatment that has no ammonia in it. Bleaching treatments will damage the surface of the marble, and may destroy the warranty!
When cleaning your marble tile, make sure you check the treatments you’re using. Soapy liquid is usually the best option for cleaning.

 

Professional Cleaning & Polishing
Over a period of time soil and abrasions may accumulate to where a regular cleaning may not get your marble flooring as clean & shiny as you like, so if your marble starts to loose it’s luster you will want to contact a professional marble tile cleaning expert to perform a deeper clean and possibly a polish to restore it back to its original beauty.

How Often Should I Have My Carpet Cleaned?

 

How Often Should I Have My Carpet Cleaned?

Vacuuming your carpets isn’t enough. There will soon come a time where you will want to consider having your carpet professionally cleaned to help keep your home spotless and allergen free and to extend the life of your carpet. Just how often should you have your carpet cleaned? Here’s a rough guide for your home.

The Average Carpet
It really depends on factors like the amount of foot traffic your carpet receives and where that carpet is laid, but on average you should look at getting the carpet cleaned every 12-18 months. This helps to lift all the dirt that gets into the fibers that vacuuming just doesn’t manage. You’ll also brighten some of the darker patches.
If your carpet is in a second home and rarely used, then cleaning can be less frequent. Just bear in mind that while there’s no foot traffic, dust will settle within the fibers.
That being said, if your carpet receives daily foot traffic and sees mud and dirt dragged in, you may want to consider cleaning more frequently.

Cleaning for Families
Families will find their carpet needs cleaning more frequently. You should consider professional carpet cleaning  every 6-12 months, instead. Your children are more likely to drag mud and dirt in or can spill drinks frequently.
Those who have pets should also consider cleaning every six months or so. The pet hairs will get stuck in the fibers and can cause some allergens. There will likely also be dirt and urine accidents that seep into the fibers.

Do you have both kids and pets? Consider cleaning every two or three months. This will help to eliminate pet problems and keep your children safe. You know they love to pick up anything from the floor and put it in their mouths!

So as you can see there is no one set rule for how often you should have your carpet cleaned but keeping these variables in mind mainly how much your carpet is used and your particular family members, and making sure you do not wait too long in between cleans will help keep your carpet investment longer and your home a healthier place to live for you and your family.

What is the best carpet for pets?

                                                                                    

 

LifeGuard Carpet By Shaw is your best choice for carpet 

What is the best carpet for pets is one of the most common questions I have run into in my 30 years of operating a local carpet cleaning company. Hi my name is Paul Dixon Owner of Carpet Renovations, Inc. serving the Tulsa & Broken Arrow Oklahoma Communities with our top of the line carpet cleaning service including pet odor removal and pet damage restoration services. Up until now I have not ran into a carpet that I could honestly recommend to my customers that would assure them if there dog, cat, or other family pet member urinated on it over an extended period of time that we as a professional carpet cleaning company could get the pet urine out. We have been quite successful in helping pet owners with this problem for years but up until now a 100% successful pet odor removal has not been possible with a cleaning alone. We have had to resort to extensive pet damage restoration which would include pad cushion removal, sealing subflooring, and enzyme treatments. These processes work well but can be very expensive to the pet owner. 

What makes Pet Urine in carpet so hard to get out?

From a professional point of view getting pet urine out of carpet is not that difficult. Use a Urine Stain Neutralizing Pretreat along with a low pH rinsing solution and a deep steam cleaning will eliminate the pet urine from the carpet. Where the trouble comes from is the pet urine that is trapped past the face fibers and into the carpet backing and often even down into the carpet cushion. Pet urine gets trapped underneath in the carpet backing and after a cleaning it will continue to keep working its way back to the surface through the carpet fibers, this process is known as "wicking" in the carpet industry.

Why does a pet barrier carpet pad not solve the problem?

When the pet barrier pads became available to the consumer I thought terrific, finally something to help the homeowners not have to replace their carpet padding after pet urine contamination has made its way into the cushion. While this did improvement the problem somewhat it just simply did not resolve the issue completely. Why? Because pet urine still penetrated past the carpet fibers, into the carpet backing and now gets trapped between the carpet backing and top surface of the impenetrable pet barrier padding. Still leaving the issue of pet urine being trapped underneath in the backing and  wicking its way back through the carpet fibers leaving recurring stains and odors even after having the carpet cleaned by a professional.

What makes the new LifeGuard Carpet by Shaw different?

LifeGuard Carpet has truly found the answer for the pet owner whose pets continue to have those nasty little accidents on the carpet. The company used two techniques while engineering this pet proof carpet, the first being a patented stain and soil resistant protection that has been put into the carpet fiber making it very stain resistant and liquid resistant. The second being the backing itself. This is the true secret to their impenetrable carpet. The backing has been patented and made out of Thermoplastic. This new backing is so impenetrable that it has even been put through the ultimate test, a swimming pool was made out of it, filled up and that's right, not a drop of water made its way through. 

Finally, as a carpet cleaning company if we service a customer that has purchased this type of carpet all we will be dealing with is getting the pet urine contamination out of the carpet fibers themselves and guess what, we can do that! If you are looking for a really good carpet and you have pets, we highly recommend LifeGuard Carpet by Shaw

Keep That Sun Off Your New Carpeting!

Summer is here and you got that much-anticipated bonus or income tax refund and bought brand new carpeting for your home!  It is clean and crisp and looking good! And you’re worrying about foot traffic and spills staining that new carpeting.  But are you worried about that sunshine?

Now that Summer is here, the sunshine is starting to peak through more and more every day. And while carpet will fade and change color over time, you can keep it lasting longer by keeping those sun rays off.

The carpeting industry refers to it as sun rot, which is the result of sun exposure. This will start that fading as soon as that carpet gets any natural light. Facts you may not realize about your carpeting and the sun:

  • Approximately 40% of carpet fading is from ultraviolet light
  • Approximately 25% of carpet fading is from solar heat and visible light
  • Approximately 10% of carpet fading is from artificial lighting, heat, humidity, and poor dye

With Ultraviolet radiation accounting for the largest percentage of fading, it is a must to protect your carpet from UV light year round no matter what part of the country you live in. Just about the biggest threat for carpet fading comes from the glass doors and windows that are facing southwest.

However, in a six-month period, carpet that isn’t protected from direct, unfiltered sunlight will have noticeable fading. Keep direct sunlight off of your carpet. Using blinds, curtains, and shades, closing them as needed.

Is Your Carpeting Making Your Fur Babies Sick?

                                                                                

Did you know that your carpeting could contain canine bacteria? Many people think that it is canines that cause bacteria and disease, which they can, but there may be bacteria residing in your carpet that can make your family pet sick.

First, let’s take a look at the different canine diseases and illnesses:

  • Distemper
  • Hepatitis
  • Kennel Cough
  • Rabies

In addition to these things, there are the Ascarids, Fleas, Heart Worms, Roundworms, and Tapeworms. And they could be living in your home’s carpet. Your home maintenance and the hygiene of your home can have a lot to do with these diseases and illnesses having access to the furry family members.

Your household’s hygiene plays a big part of keeping distemper, a viral disease that causes catarrh, coughing, and fever in dogs. Today, there isn’t a cure for this contagious disease, other than being clean and keeping your pet clean. Distemper is transmitted through pet fecal and urine. So getting you carpet professionally deep cleaned on a regular basis is important to your pet.

And Kennel Cough, the upper respiratory infection that is transmitted to dogs through airborne droplets from coughing and sneezing. When you or anyone, including your pets cough or sneeze, they leave agents behind to spread and contaminate surfaces including your carpet.

Rabies is a viral infection that affects a dog’s brain gray matter is transmitted by infected animal’s saliva. We all know that a dog bite is serious, especially if they are infected with this disease. But did you know it can also be transmitted from an infected animal that licks your carpeting, furniture or anything else?

Keep your home clean and get that professional deep down carpet cleaning that will get those diseases and illness out of there. Including the internal and external parasites like Fleas, heart Worms, and Tapeworms.

Which Type of Carpet Stays Cleaner Longer?

So, what color of carpeting do you have in your home? What type of carpeting is it? Nylon, polyester or a wool carpet? When it comes to cleaning it and keeping it clean, the color is only part of the equation. What it is made from is the other part.

The chemical compound of your home’s carpet is not what determines if your carpet will ever get dirty. It is going to get dirty, especially if you have kids and pets. What the chemical compound does affect are the wear and tear. Depending on the chemical compound, carpeting wears differently.

For instance, let’s look at Olefin carpet. It is pretty much a plastic carpet that is rigid and doesn’t have any flexibility. Then, there is nylon carpet, which is a synthetic carpet. It is a flexible type of material and wears better than the Olefin.

Now, let’s look at the dirt and soil issues of carpeting. Regardless of what compound the carpet is made of, Olefin or nylon, if you’re going to buy a light colored carpet, it is going to get dirty and look worn out. Light colored carpet should only be used in low traffic areas.

The active household’s best choice is a Berber carpet or a short loop carpeting.These wear better, and as long as you don’t buy a light color, it won’t show dirt as bad. A neutral tan or a speckled frieze is a good choice. They clean easily for those daily accidents, and when it comes to professional cleaning, they are great.

2. After the wax has become frozen use a tool such as a screw driver or blunt instrument of choice and chip away as much wax from the carpet as possible being careful not to damage the carpet fibers.

3. Remove all the chipped pieces of wax from the area and vacuum the area thoroughly.

4. Next place a paper towel over the area and using a regular clothes iron with the setting on low (no steam) lightly iron over the paper towel in a circular motion. Usually just about 20 seconds at a time.

What can Wetness do to Your Home?

Simply because your home isn’t on the coastline or near a body of water like a creek, lake, or river, doesn’t mean you’ll never experience water damage of some type. Anyone can have a bathtub or sink overflow, a washing machine overflow or even a water heater burst.

When any of that happens, it is important to get it cleaned up and dried out as fast as possible. Water Damage of any type can lead to destruction and will ruin everything it comes in contact with, especially the furniture and the walls, the carpeting, and carpet padding.   When water is left to stand, it seeps into baseboards and up the walls. It will weaken your home’s structure.  If the water leakage is happening on an upper floor or the attic, there is the risk of the ceiling getting water-logged and spreading debris, dust, and insulation all into the lower level living space.

To minimize the damage to your home’s interior and your personal items, it is important to eliminate all the humidity and moisture immediately. Any equipment that generates heat like computers and televisions will increase the humidity, making mold and mildew grow faster.

Once mold and mildew form, severe respiratory problems are likely with the allergens that are produced. Family members will be prone to rashes, red eyes, and runny noses as well as sneezing. Anyone with breathing problems like asthma will suffer.

If you experience any flooding in your home, don’t hesitate and call a professional company that can remove the water and dry your home out quickly.  The sooner you act, the better for your home’s structure and everyone inside.

Room Deodorizers – Are They a Good Thing?

As an owner of a professional carpet cleaning company here in Tulsa, Oklahoma we are in many residential homes through out the day after receiving calls from a concerned homeowner who's family dog or cat has been urinating on the carpet. One of the most common occurrences we encounter is the use of room deodorizers in one form or another. Often times I will leave from a home and still smell the scent that gets trapped in my sinuses for hours. Yes, room deodorizers leave a pleasant smell and aroma in the air but exactly what is in them and what are we breathing, are they safe?

So that leads to the question; Room deodorizers - are they a good thing?

According to the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) in their publication, Protect Your Family from the Hidden Hazards in Air Fresheners  many of these products contain phthalates (pronounced thal-ates)—hazardous chemicals known to cause hormonal abnormalities, birth defects, and reproductive problems. NRDC’s independent testing of 14 common air fresheners, none of which listed phthalates as an ingredient, uncovered these chemicals in 86 percent (12 of 14) of the products tested, including those advertised as “allnatural” or “unscented.” 

They go on to say; There is a clear need for closer monitoring of the types of chemicals manufacturers are allowed to put into air fresheners—and for consumers to be provided with better information about what is in the products they do purchase. 

Not all room deodorizers are bad, but you should try to be more informed about the products you buy. There are several natural air deodorizers on the shelves today that are not harmful. 

More consumers are leaning toward natural living after experiencing health issues or loss of a family member leading them to educate themselves in a cleaner healthier life style. Many who have become aware of the dangers of chemicals and toxic additives that are not being regulated by the production companies are now turning to more natural alternatives such as the use of an essential oil diffuser or residential ozone machine to help eliminate odors in their homes. These alternative choices not only leave the air smelling clean and fresh but also have many health benefits as well.

If you own an indoor pet and you are dealing with odor in your home you will want to know that pet urine after 72 hours goes through a chemical process and eventually turns into a gas which is what you are smelling after these toxins reach the air and enter into your breathing zone. Not only does this bacteria produce a bad odor that permeates  through out the rest of your home but it is potentially dangerous for your health as well. Masking the odor with an air freshener is only masking the problem and can possibly be adding to the dangers of breathing in particles that are not safe for you or your family. 

When it comes to pet urine odor and bacteria in your carpet or upholstery you will want to call in a professional who deals with those kinds of situations on a regular basis. Carpet Renovations is one such company that you can confide in that has the experience and know how, using pet urine neutralizers, low pH rinsing solutions, truck mounted steam carpet extraction systems, and pet urine enzymes. Carpet Renovations has over 30 years experience with the latest developments on pet odor removal and will put their know how to work for you, leaving you with a cleaner healthier home.

If Bigger is Better, Then Thicker Carpet Must be, Too!

If you are looking for plush, rich carpeting for your home, then yes, thick carpet is what you should get. Thick plush carpet is great for living areas, a game room or even your master bedroom. However, for a dense and durable carpet, then thick carpeting is not your best choice. Areas such as hallways or a room that has a lot of traffic would not be the best place for the newer style of thick carpeting. For density, you want each inch to have more yarn, and that will give you longer durability. How much carpet fiber is defined per inch on the carpet density and face weight, and both of these aspects play an important role when it comes to determining the durability of carpet.

Dense carpeting has the appearance of not looking as aged and worn. When there is a lot of carpet fibers, it makes it stronger. If you’re looking for durability, look for carpeting with a face weight of more than sixty ounces. However, if you are confused by the two numbers, just refer to the density numbers which are more standardized.

Keep in mind that thicker carpet is difficult to clean, and a dense carpet fiber count makes for a perfect trap for allergens, debris, and dirt. Thus, from the cleaning aspect, high traffic areas are not where you want to install thick carpeting.

Carpet with longer yarns and thicker carpets are more prone to matting, much like dogs with longer hair. This is why businesses with a lot of foot traffic will go with extremely dense carpeting. In a residential use, though, you can go with a happy medium density. A tightly curled and wavy carpet is very durable because of the tight twist every 7 to 9 inches.

A great choice for the highly sought after and much desired thick carpet that is now available to consumers would be perfect as an area rug in a main living room, game room, or favorite hobby room. Using this type of carpet as an area rug enables the homeowner to rotate the carpet from time to time to keep traffic patterns from developing in main walk areas. 

When it comes to thick carpet it is sure to be very comfortable and beautiful for any area it is put in but remember do choose wisely on the location you choose.

10 Things we like to do in Tulsa

One of the things that the owner and crew at Carpet Renovations like about being in the Tulsa area as a business and as residents are all the activities that are going on all the time. T-Town is a booming city now and a great part of the industrious part of Oklahoma. It still has that small town charm and feel that people are looking for and it still offers some of the big city lifestyles, too.

Take a look at what you can enjoy while living or visiting Tulsa, Oklahoma:

1. River Parks: The Oklahoma we see today was acquired by the U.S. in 1803 from France as part of the Louisiana Purchase. It became known as where the Trail of Tears ended when the U.S. forced Native Americans to leave their home in the eastern and southern states.

Today, the River Parks in Oklahoma are where you’ll enjoy more than 800 acres of land along the Arkansas River that features a trail system that weaves through open lawns with tree-lined picnic areas. Dotted with bronze wildlife sculptures and colored by the native trees and wildflowers, here are where many public events are held with an amphitheater and a floating stage. Enhancements are being made to the park area, and visitors will soon experience something new.

2.Oklahoma Aquarium: The Oklahoma Aquarium was recently opened in 2003 and provides 72,000-square-feet of exhibits that include a coral reef, invertebrates, Ozark habitats, sharks and Oklahoma species.

3. Restaurants: There are many restaurants in and around Tulsa that the residents and visitors alike both enjoy. These are three favorites of the crew at Carpet Renovations:

Speedy Gonzales: Some of the best Mexican cuisine in the state.
Fish Daddy’s Seafood Grill House: A bar and eatery that serves some of the best Cajun specialties and fish.
Olive Garden: One of many major chain restaurants in the area with the best Italian food.

4. Bike at Turkey Mountain Red Trail and Tulsa River Park: One of Tulsa’s most beautiful nature areas is this 300-acre of wilderness that stretches along the west bank of the river. With lots of woods, dirt trails, ponds and more, this is one of the city’s most popular areas for biking, hiking, skating, walking and more.

5. Hike at Red Bud Valley: There is nothing more peaceful than a hike or walk in Redbud Valley Nature Preserve. Beauty among a rugged scenery that is alive with animals and plants that are native to northeastern Oklahoma.

Meet the owners of Carpet Renovations, Inc.

Welcome and thank you so much for coming to our blog to meet us! Our names are Paul and Rose Dixon Owners of Carpet Renovations, Inc.

It has been a pleasure for us to serve the Greater Tulsa & Broken Arrow, Oklahoma Area. We have really been thrilled operating our carpet cleaning business in our new Broken Arrow Location! So much so we recently moved our residence to Broken Arrow having previously lived in Claremore, Oklahoma.

We are currently attending church at Sheridan Christian Center and looking forward to becoming active members within the church possibly serving in the Children's Ministry and Evangelism Areas. We will keep you posted on how that is coming along whereas we just started attending this marvelous church just a few months ago and looking where the most need and best fit for us will be.

Other things we enjoy doing is visiting Costa Rica where we are currently as I am writing this article. We visit mainly to see family but we also very much enjoy the beautiful ocean beaches and rain forests along with the very interesting and fascinating experiences of the market shopping in down town central San Jose! Of course this is just common place for my wife Rose but a whole new experience for me. We very much enjoy spending time with our children and grandchildren who also live here in the Tulsa area so we get to see them quite frequently and cherish every moment spent with them.

As we strive to be and become one of the leading carpet cleaning companies in our area we try not to lose focus on the fact that it is a privilege to be doing what we are doing. It is people such as yourselves and of course our return customers that allow us to keep serving and growing the business as we are pursuing our dreams. We love setting goals and accomplishing them as we add new and creative ideas to the business; new equipment, products, and hiring some of the best employees a company can have.

Our goal with what we want to accomplish throughout the day as business owners is to be a blessing to everyone we come in contact with and to offer one of the best carpet cleaning experiences that one can have. We do this by providing the best equipment and training to our technicians and passing on the desire to them to be a blessing to each and every customer. Our aim is to completely satisfy and wow our clients with a great job and to add to their day an extra touch of enjoyment.

Now that you have met us and know a little about ourselves we truly look forward to hearing from you and making your acquaintance also. Again, Thank you so much for this opportunity to share a little of our lives with you and to learn a little about our purposes and enjoyments of life we have to share.

~ Paul & Rose

The Makings of A Successful Business

A BUSINESS PLAN

As with anything a business needs direction. Much like a road map that defines your destination you will need to make your business plan clear and direct. Put your plan in writing, set your goals, and daily pursue them. As your business grows you will want to reevaluate and continue adding to them as you move forward accomplishing your dreams.

FINANCIAL PLANNING

Financial planning is the fuel to getting you where you want to go. Start with a budget and just as you did with your business plan put it in writing. Some may want to take a small business loan while others will start with a small attainable investment and grow the business as their profits come in. Either you choose put your ideas on paper and set goals for your financial success.

MARKETING

Marketing your business is key to your success; you will want to spend time, money, and effort getting the word out. You should spend an ample amount of time each day making connections whether it is face to face or online marketing. Your connections will become a valuable asset for getting you where you want to go.

BUILDING A TEAM

This is beyond a doubt one of your most important decisions for your business. It is very important that you not only know HOW you do what you do but WHY you do what you do. Surround yourself with other successful people as you pick your team and invest time with them sharing your vision regularly. Empower your team for success by giving them clear direction and purpose. Appreciation for the individuals you associate is the winning key so let them know how important they are to the success of the business. Set your key associates in positions of influence letting them know you are interested in their thoughts and ideas.

CONTINUALLY IMPROVE

Start with developing a system that works. Systematic procedures for others to follow that are proven successful are the cornerstone to all successful businesses. After developing a successful system continue to improve it on a regular basis as your knowledge and finances grow. Continued education in your area of expertise for yourself and your team coupled with the latest and most effective tools of your trade are a powerful combination that will give you the momentum you need to make your business a great one.

Carpet Renovations New Broken Arrow Location

It all began with a dream, the owners of Carpet Renovations, Inc. Paul & Rose Dixon had considered for years a building of their own. At first the thought was to look for a house that had a large shop add-on but then changed to building an office/warehouse with one side to occupy and one side to lease. The young entrepreneurs applied for an SBA government loan and set out to pursue their dream. The complete process took the couple about a year and now Carpet Renovations, Inc. has a new home centrally located in the city of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma just off the corner of 91st Street & Aspen.

The couple had quite a challenge finding a small spot of land still available in the Broken Arrow area but as they persevered they soon located and purchased the perfect .6 acre lot just behind a few store fronts. The owner Ken Dobbins had seen an ad Paul had posted looking for a small piece of property in Broken Arrow to build on. It turns out Ken had been saving the lot for over 20 years with the thought he would build again but never did. The Dixon's then contacted The Boyd Group and had their dream put on paper and shortly after accepted by the City of Broken Arrow and the work began.

Paul & Rose found it to be a very pleasant and successful experience as they took on the role of General Contractor for their very first time. Paul stated they were so pleased to find that each of the contractors they had hired not only performed their work skillfully but with integrity and in a timely manner. He also said very few problems arose, which is uncommon in almost any building project. Even the City of Broken Arrow greeted them with open arms and was excited about the project coming to their community and Jim, the Broken Arrow Building Inspector, was an absolute joy to work with.

The new Broken Arrow Carpet Renovations Building is a 4200 sq. ft Lucas Metal Building with two large overhead garage doors going to the warehouse sections, two tiled front offices and bathrooms, and is climate controlled both in the office and warehouse areas. The building parking consists of a concrete parking lot with 8 parking spaces and 1 handicap parking. It is nicely landscaped with rock and evergreen trees and has a fully enclosed 16x16 ft. fenced area containing an 8 cubic ft. dumpster. The project was completed and approved for occupancy on June 25th, 2014.

Carpet Renovations main services are: Carpet Cleaning & Repair, Tile and Grout Cleaning, Air Duct Cleaning, & Water Damage Restoration. Other services provided include: Mattress and Upholstery Cleaning, Dryer Vent Cleaning, Allergy Relief Treatments, Pet Damage Restoration, and Odor Control

Angels Unaware

Many will agree with me as we go through our everyday lives, days go by while people seem to just come and go with few leaving much of an impression. Then there comes along a very special someone that after our time with them is spent it leaves us thinking, that person was such an angel! Well, this little article is about a very special lady and her name is Gladys.

It was a typically cold and wintry day my wife and I was called out on a small water damage job where we met Gladys who greeted us at the door with her caring smile and her faithful companion Penny in her arms. It was a real joy getting to know her for the short time we were there.

Gladys is 93 years old and a retired school teacher of 30 years. Marrying at the early age of 20 her husband was soon called off to war just two years later. He fought and sadly was killed in the war never to be reunited with his young bride again. She had lost her only true love in World War II, choosing never to remarry. Gladys then became a school teacher where she served others with her love and kindness for many years. She said being a school teacher came easy to her as she chose to focus on each student’s strong points and help develop them. Every year she still gets over 300+ Christmas cards from her former students.

As we were leaving she impressed my wife Rose and I with one more memorable comment, she said “the only thing that really matters in life is your love that you have for others”. As we look back at our conversation and the idea that this woman has spent her whole life unselfishly helping others it brings a scripture to mind. Hebrews 13:2 - Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. What a joy to work for such a beautiful person.

The Grinch Cleaned Out Carpet Renovations' Christmas Decorations

The holiday times are busy for everyone. There's the food shopping, present shopping and decorating. Businesses and homes all deck the halls and decorate the yards. Taking the kids to see Santa to share their list of wants with him. Then there is The Grinch.

Yes Cindy Lou, there really is a Grinch. Sadly, there are many of them around the country this time of year. Just like many businesses in the area, Carpet Renovations had placed a few Christmas decorations in the small yard of their business. A Frosty the Snowman, lighted presents and few other light up decorations.

Monday night December 8, 2014 a Grinch driving a minivan relieved Carpet Renovations from their outdoor decorations. It isn't the monetary value that they got away with that is the issue here. It is the spirit of Christmas they put a dent in for the team and business owners of Carpet Renovations. As reported on News 6 Tuesday night, Frosty won't return this year. However, the team at Carpet Renovations won't let that Grinch clean our Christmas Spirit out completely!

Its business as usual with us, carpet cleaning and repair, tile cleaning plus much more. If the cold weather is keeping your dog in the house and accidents happen, we are the company that specializes in pet odor and stain removal. Get your house freshened up for the holidays soon.

When you get a chance please take a look at the raw footage we uploaded on YouTube, and if you recognize anyone please contact us or the Broken Arrow police department. Click Here to see the video.
