sweeper or to inhale toxic spores while removing black mold from your

thorough cleaning. You suck up the surface dirt but leave most of it
lurking close to the ground. You’re going to need to steam cleam that carpet once in a while, and instead of renting the equipment call a professional they already have the heavy-duty equipment, so let them come to you!

floors come back to life.

weather and heating season begin, or of course when you notice a buildup of

attempting to do it yourself, stop right there. Do not go near that
chimney with any kind of cleaning apparatus. Contact a chimney sweep.

spending a weekend stuck in your chimney.
