With many shop local events going on today, Rick’s Professional Carpet Cleaning would like to reinforce the importance of community participation and purchasing.
As we can usually all agree, online shopping with door to door delivery is very convenient. But, what, if anything, are we sacrificing for this convenience? Is our community stronger by purchasing goods and services from companies outside of our general area?
We, of course, believe in free trade and for consumers to have unlimited choices when purchasing goods and services. We also believe in community, and family. And, though, sometimes something might be a few cents or dollars more in our own community than we can buy online, we believe the purchase of these items from a local retailer does more than a few cents or dollars of good, and not just for the small business owner, but for Our Community as a whole.
From fruits and vegetables, food trucks, hardware stores, roofing companies and yes, even carpet cleaners… you have local choices.
Do we falter ourselves and give in to the quick and easy? Yes, of course. But we should all try to be conscious of our spending habits and do our part to help our community thrive, not just today, but every day!
Happy Holidays everyone!

With Labor Day weekend upon us, we would like to take a moment to say a couple things;
- We wish to thank every hard working Kansan and American, regardless of their vocation. From teachers to janitors, bank employees to construction workers, doctors and nurses, and all of our local aircraft workers; your efforts have helped build a pretty terrific nation. Yes, we have some growing pains, but we will endure.
- We want to thank the small business owner, as well. The rare individual who trades a steady paycheck for what is typically long hours, stress, and headaches of all manners. Yet, they still stride forward. In our opinion, these individuals need all of our support. And it is in all of our best interests to keep the entrepreneurial spirit alive. Remember to shop local when you can, and give these businesses a chance to earn your business. In doing so, you are helping to support the backbone of our country. As a small business owner, Rick would like to say, “We appreciate the honor of earning your business”.
Rick can be reached at (316) 213-1500.

So, why is wearing socks the best practice to help extend the life of your carpet. It’s pretty simple, really. The other two options (Wearing Shoes and going bare foot) have the capacity to reduce the life of your carpet but in different ways
First, wearing shoes is abrasive. The abrasive action causes wear on the carpet strands and fibers. Also, especially in cold weather, shoes that have been worn outside bring in other abrasive particles. Salt and salting chemicals like calcium chloride are very abrasive and also pull moisture from their surroundings. As you can imagine, this is not good for your carpet and other types of flooring such as laminate, hard wood, and tile.
Secondly, going bare footed can release natural oils and lotions onto the carpet. These can create an attractive force for dirt and other small particles.
This is why a pair of soft, comfortable socks is your best choice.
