With Daylight Savings starting Sunday and spring around the corner, it's time to start about spring cleaning. This year why not consider a different approach, one that's greener and better from your family and the Earth? Read this story and you may start thinking differently.
Germs & BacteriaFew would disagree with this statement: Germs and bacteria can be really disgusting, especially in the home where they can pose a health threat to your children, family and pets. The statistics are shocking. For example there are an average of more than 500,000 bacteria per square inch found in the home kitchen. What's equally alarming is about 70 percent of all sponges, rags, towels and other cleaning tools are nurturing harmful microbes like E. coli which can cause serious illness. And what about the floors we walk on at home where our kids and pets also play -- and where we sometimes sit on the carpet and read to them?

The 5-Second RuleSpeaking of all those germs and bacteria, I hate to even think about all the microscopic critters that could be lurking on the floor and in the carpet at our house. As KidsHealth points out the infamous 5-Second Rule isn't an old wive's tale. Bacteria is everywhere and can be found living on surfaces of all kinds in your house -- including floors. And, if your child drops food on the floor and then picks it up and eats it, it could make him or her sick.
While the news isn't good that bacteria really is present in all of our houses, there are easy, positive things that you can do to keep it to the absolute bare minimum possible for the well-being of your family.
Dirtiest Carpet in Southern California Challenge

I booked my appointment to have our very challenging dirty carpets cleaned. Shortly after,
an email arrived confirming the date and time window I requested as well as giving me a short checklist of recommended things to do for the best results before the service man got there -- such as clearing the floor areas I wanted cleaned and vacuuming. The customer service didn't stop there, about a half hour before my service technician Eduardo rang my doorbell, he called to let me know he was on his way. And guess what? He arrived at the beginning of the four hour service window I was given when I scheduled my service.

In fact the company's slogan is "The Guys That Drink the Water," and just to make sure I drank it too before my carpets were cleaned.

Dexter of course doesn't talk so he can't tell you his opinion. But, you should have seen my kids' extremely positive reactions when they got home from school after the job was done -- they are teenagers, mind you, and are not afraid to tell you what they really think. They even thought the end result was newsworthy enough to Facebook their older brother who's away at college on the East Coast. Then my happy hubby walks in the door and can't stop raving about how great our rugs now look.
