Getting ready for Summer!!
Well folks, the New Year is upon us and I think it’s time to start thinking about summer. A little early you say? The snow is still on the ground, and the current warm weather will no doubt be replaced by more snow and cold, you say? Well you are probably right, winter hasn’t let go yet, the snow and cold isn’t going anywhere soon and spring is just wishful thinking at this point in time. So like I said, now is the perfect time to start thinking about summer.
My daughter is getting married in July this year. There are a thousand little items to get finished before the big day. Things like finishing all the little half done renovations around the house. You know, little things that are easy to put off until later, things like painting and installing the baseboards that have been sitting out in the garage for six months, replacing the kitchen tap, etc., etc. Everything around the house has to be done before the end of June as that’s when our family will descend upon Edmonton stay with us until after the wedding. That’s just the house, we have all the other parts of the wedding to help co-ordinate, we still have to put in the garden and do a million other things. It’s only January so I have lots of time, right? Well actually I do, but only if I plan it all out properly.
I don’t know about you, but for me life tends to get in the way a lot, and I found out a long time ago, if I set definite goals, and schedule their completion properly I don’t end up having everything happen at once. Not only that but if you have to rush through getting things done, they tend to get done poorly. That’s why I schedule things to be done by a certain date, or on a certain date. I need my fence re-painted, so it has already been scheduled for May. I would do the same for professional carpet cleaning, if I needed to.
One of the things that can creep up on you is having your carpets cleaned professionally. You walk on them every day and tend to miss the obvious. You know they need professional cleaning, but you tend to forget about them until the last minute, and then it’s a mad scramble to find a professional carpet cleaner that has the time to come and clean before the big day.
We recommend that you book far in advance if you need carpets cleaned. One or two months or more advanced booking is not a problem for us, and you know you have a professional booked. It also gives you time to ask the questions you should ask, to ensure we or anyone else is the right fit for you. Remember, not all companies are created equal, you need to find one that will fix your problems, not increase them.
So remember, it’s not a bad idea to book the painter, or the plumber a couple of months in advance to ensure you can get them, and it’s not a bad idea to book your professional carpet cleaning several months in advance either.
Thanks for listening.
