2017 MAY NEWSLETTER Hello Clients and Friends!   Well I’m back into the swing of things again.  It was nice to get away to some warm weather.  I hope to be wearing shorts again soon. I know everyone is looking forward to the warm weather and enjoying the outdoors! Thank you to those great clients who referred in March and April: Natalie Enns Tasha Slater Heather St. Pierre Kirsey Agne Thank you to the great clients who booked in March and April! The winner for the March Review Draw is: Shannon Pogue! There wasn't a winner for April, so make sure to post one in May! Thank you to those who posted reviews! See you soon! Renée   Buy New or Re-Upholster?   Before you replace a couch, consider re-upholstering it.   Ask yourself these questions:   1. Does it have sentimental value? If it’s an antique or was your grandmother’s, it will be hard to replace.   2. What kinds of springs does it have? Hand-tied springs are a sign of a quality piece.   3. How heavy is it? Heavier furniture tends to be more solidly constructed.   4. How old is it? A lot of furniture made in the last 10 years are not made as well as the older ones.   5. Has it been re-upholstered before? If it has, it has been around for a while and will probably last quite a few more years.   If you really like the piece and it fits well in your house, then that may be the best reason to re-upholster it.     Referrals & Client Rewards   Refer a friend and receive a $15 Tim’s or gas card when they have a cleaning done.  Make sure they mention your name!   All Clients get 10% off their cleanings or 15% off when they clean every 6 months!   Write a review and enter to win a $15 Tim’s or Pioneer gas card!  Facebook, Google or HomeAdvisor.com Scroll to the bottom of the homepage and find the new buttons!   Don’t forget I offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee or I will re-clean it for Free! 519-919-3313 renee@foamfrenzy.com  ...

2017 FEB NEWSLETTER Hello Clients and Friends! Happy New Year!   Hope this year has started off great!  Since the holidays I have been working on eating balanced meals.  Hopefully I can keep it going all year.  Do you have any goals this year? Also, thanks to those who referred the last two months:  Kerry and Lucille St. Pierre, Kathy McCann, Anna Marie Nantais, Tina Vanier, Larry Pickle, Tasha Slater, Bob Hunt, Mark Huggard and Melissa Woodrow! The winner for the December Review Draw is  Kyle McKrow! There wasn’t a winner for January, but thank you to those who posted reviews in December! Renée             Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Preparation   If you are having some cleaning done, here’s how to prepare: Turn your furnace fan on so it runs all day. This will keep the circulation flowing in the house to help dry your carpets quicker. Round up your fans. Direct air flow will dry them much quicker.  Prepare your pets. If you have dogs or cats, be prepared to keep them off the carpet/upholstery until dry.  This is more important if scotchguard is applied.  Arrange for them to be out of the house or keep them locked up for the day.  Vacuum and wash your floors surrounding the carpet. You don’t want to track dirt onto freshly cleaned carpets—the dirt will stick. Please make room in the driveway near the entrance for parking. This makes it easier to bring all the equipment in.       Pick up as much as you can in the rooms being cleaned, especially small items/tables.  The larger furniture can be moved around.                            Keep a sink clear for water access.                                          If you decide on a cleaning package where you will be vacuuming, make sure to get the crevices and room edges with a crevice tool.           Referrals & Rewards     Refer a friend and receive a $15 Tim’s or gas card when they have a cleaning done.  Make sure they mention your name!   All Clients get 10% off their cleanings or 15% off when they clean every 6 months!   Write a review and enter to win a $15 Tim’s or Pioneer gas card!  Facebook, Google or HomeAdvisor.com Scroll to the bottom of the homepage and find the new buttons!   Don’t forget I offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee or I will re-clean it for Free! 519-919-3313 renee@foamfrenzy.com  ...

2016 DEC UPDATE Hello Clients and Friends!   So, I'm skipping the November newsletter and moving onto December, due to a busy month! So, thanks for that! Thank you for another great year. I only have you to thank! I look forward to seeing you all next year. Also, thanks to those who referred the last two months: Vicky Smith, Nadia Ingratta, Michelle Prince, Rachelle Friis, John Brown and Heather Loree! The winner for the October Review Draw is Deborah Bonfiglio! The winner for November is Sassy Dawe! Thank you to those who posted reviews! Remember to take some time off over the holidays and spend some time with those you love. Merry Christmas! Renée             Carpet and Furniture Soil- Prevention for the Holidays   Leave a basket by the door full of slippers, so your guests are welcome to remove their shoes and replace them with slippers. Also, leave a sign nearby saying "Please take off your shoes and wear slippers instead". Place extra mats at doorways for the extra traffic. Vacuum the entrances regularly, so the dirt doesn't get tracked into the rest of the house. Place covers on your furniture if you're expecting young children to be eating or drinking around them. Also, if you're expecting pets that may go on the furniture. If there is a new pet coming into the house, don't leave them unattended, in case they feel the need to mark your house or are not fully trained. Provide trays or extra tables for people to put their drinks or plates on. Roll up your nice area rugs, so you don't have to worry about the extra foot traffic or spills. Keep a bottle of Proxi on hand to easily clean up any food, drink or pet messes that may occur.     Referrals & Rewards   Refer a friend and receive a $15 Tim’s or gas card when they have a cleaning done.  Make sure they mention your name!   All Clients get 10% off their cleanings or 15% off when they clean every 6 months!   Write a review and enter to win a $15 Tim’s or Pioneer gas card!  Facebook, Google or HomeAdvisor.com Scroll to the bottom of the homepage and find the new buttons!   Don’t forget I offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee or I will re-clean it for Free! 519-919-3313 renee@foamfrenzy.com  ...

2016 OCT UPDATE Hello Clients and Friends!   Happy Belated Thanksgiving! I’m definitely thankful for my friends, family and Foam Frenzy clients! What are you thankful for? So, thanks again to my Foam Frenzy clients who booked appointments in September and to those who referred: Tammy Reid, Jane Baldwin and Joanne from Belle River Co-op. Finally, a winner for the Review Draw this month! Thanks Yvette Jackson for posting a review. Happy Halloween and don't forget to have some fun! Renée           Spot Cleaning Tips   1. Urine stains Surface cleaning with a normal cleaner won’t work. You need to pour it, so it gets into the carpet backing or cushion foam. You also need to use a cleaner that will eat up the urine. It needs enzymes to break down the urine stain and smell. More volume = more cleaner. If you have a large dog that peed, then you need to pour more cleaner into the carpet, than for a small dog. 2. Water marks If your upholstered furniture leaves water marks when you clean it, there’s a couple things you can do to help prevent it: Use less moisture when cleaning and rinsing. Try to feather out the moisture on the edges of the spot you have cleaned. Evenly wet the entire area of the cushion so it won’t leave a water mark. If you need help, call Foam Frenzy!     Referrals & Rewards   Refer a friend and receive a $15 Tim’s or gas card when they have a cleaning done.  Make sure they mention your name!   All Clients get 10% off their cleanings or 15% off when they clean every 6 months!   Write a review and enter to win a $15 Tim’s or Pioneer gas card!  Facebook, Google or HomeAdvisor.com Scroll to the bottom of the homepage and find the new buttons!   Don’t forget I offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee or I will re-clean it for Free! 519-919-3313 renee@foamfrenzy.com  ...

2016 SEPT UPDATE Hello Clients and Friends! So, the not-so-humid weather has finally arrived and I’m    loving it.  I’m sure you are too! It does remind me that the cold weather is coming in the near  future, so I’m trying to enjoy the outdoors as much as I can. Thanks again to my Foam Frenzy clients who booked  appointments in August. Also a big thanks to those who referred: Brian Cornies and Tom Brown! There wasn’t any reviews posted in September, so there isn’t a winner!  Maybe next month :) Have a great September—what’s left of it anyway :) Renée         Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Myths Steam cleaning is the most thorough type of cleaning you can use. In reality, the job is usually quick and the carpet and backing gets really wet.  Regular cleaning will remove pet-related stains and smells.  You need to use a cleaner that will eat up the stain and odor or you will just be spreading it around during a regular      cleaning.  This makes it even harder to get them out later. Any stain that is food related or hasn’t been there long should be easy to remove. A lot of foods have natural and artificial dyes in them that do just that - dye things!             Knowing what the stain is will help determine how easy it is to remove. Cotton and other natural materials are best for stain resistance.  They can resist stains well, but when they let them into the material, they are usually impossible to get out. You should wait to clean your carpet the first time because it will never be the same.  Everything needs    maintenance on a regular basis.  If you wait too long, you won’t be able to get it looking the same.       Referrals & Rewards Refer a friend and receive a $15 Tim’s or gas card when they have a cleaning done.  Make sure they mention your name!   All Clients get 10% off their cleanings or 15% off when they clean every 6 months!   Write a review and enter to win a $15 Tim’s or Pioneer gas card!  Facebook, Google or HomeAdvisor.com Scroll to the bottom of the homepage and find the new buttons!   Don’t forget I offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee or I will re-clean it for Free! 519-919-3313 renee@foamfrenzy.com  ...
