5 Holidays Gifts Perfect for YOU!

holiday home giftsSometimes we feel like we need a holiday to recover from the holidays. All the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, shopping, wrapping, tree decorating…by the time the holiday parties are done, it feels like we need a reward for all the effort we put into the holidays. If you’re feeling tapped out, and are looking for the perfect after-holiday gift, we’ve got one of these suggestions:

Carpet cleaning

Tired of scrubbing all the soda and wine spills off the carpet from your holiday parties? Schedule a carpet cleaning after all the holiday gatherings are done. You’ll have clean carpets without having to lift a finger, and a chance to relax in a clean house.

Updated kitchen

You’ve been cooking in your outdated kitchen all holiday season, so why not go into the New Year with a kitchen you look forward to cooking in next year? Look into updated kitchen counter tops and a backsplash that gives your kitchen the finishing touch you’ve been dreaming of.

Man cave

Add flooring, if needed, and blinds so you can see the TV. Need a break from home projects after preparing your home for the holidays? Contact the professionals to install blinds so you can enjoy your new man space.

Easy to clean floors

For one of our customers, the last holiday season with carpet in their dining room was one holiday season too many. They were tired of the jello stains from their young children, and sick of trying to keep it clean. If you can identify with their plight, and have a hard-to-clean floor of your own, it may be time to investigate a new, easier-to-clean for your home. We’d suggest laminate, wood or luxury vinyl floors which are MUCH easier to clean in high traffic areas. If you want to save money on labor, look into a DIY flooring option.

Family room

After the holidays, it’s easy to get cabin fever once it becomes clear that the cold weather and snow isn’t going away any time soon. That’s why winter is an ideal time to finish your basement (find out what floors can be installed in a basement here), so your whole family can enjoy the gift that keeps giving: a hangout room.

If you have any questions about flooring (or backsplash options) or want to schedule a carpet cleaning appointment, contact us. We’ll help you make your holiday even jollier so you can feel rewarded for all that effort.

10 Reasons Why Carpet Cleaning is the Ultimate Gift

Kids_carpetIt’s not another sweater. The ultimate gift for that person in your life who has everything is not in a department store on Black Friday. When racking your mind for gift ideas, give that gift recipient the gift that is next to godliness—cleaning—without lifting a finger.  Doesn’t sound very sentimental, does it? To the contrary, giving the gift of carpet cleaning is the ultimate gift, and for very good reason:

  1. You can get rid of all those holiday gathering spills. The family may be gone but the spills remain. Say thank you to your family or friends for hosting the family get together by helping them clean up afterward (without having to actually, ahem, clean).
  2. It’s way more affordable than you think. You won’t have to take out a second mortgage to pay for this gift, while still being able to make an impact on their whole house.
  3. Your new homeowner appreciates the chance to get rid of the last owner’s grime. If your gift recipient is a new homeowner, help them get a clean start in their new house.
  4. There are only so many sweaters you can give. This is the gift for that person in your life that has everything—or the person that thinks that cleanliness is next to godliness.
  5. It’s cheaper than new carpets. Is your gift recipient on a budget? Give them the feel of luxurious new carpets without paying for replacement.
  6. Your Christmas present, a puppy, is done potty training! Now it’s time to get rid of the accidents you had to endure to achieve that milestone.
  7. The gift of no allergy-related sneezing is the gift that keeps giving. Have a cat lover on your list who’s allergic to cats and doesn’t want to give them up? Here’s your answer.
  8. For busy families, a clean house is a luxury that feels like a gift. If you have a young family on your list that can’t keep up with house cleaning, help them out.
  9. For the OCD cleaner, this is the ultimate gift. We know a woman who gave her husband a mop for the holidays, and he loved it. This is the same kind of sentiment.
  10. Santa says your gift recipient has been extra good this year.

To clarify: don’t buy your gift recipient a carpet cleaner, or rent one at the local hardware store. Give them a real, deep carpet clean that they don’t have to lift a finger to do. Contact Y’s Way, a local carpet cleaner with experience and a good track record. That’s a holiday gift we all can appreciate.
