TIP OF THE MONTH

CARPET CARE
General Care:
The best way to ensure your carpet's longest life is to vacuum regularly, even if it doesn't look dirty! Weekly vacuuming is recommended for normal traffic, and at least twice a week for heavy traffic areas (hallways, stairs, exterior entry ways).

Professional Cleaning:
No matter how often you vacuum, heavy duty cleaning is required at least once every 18 months to maintain most carpet warranties. Only use qualified and trained professionals (We recommend Carpet Care Plus) and retain your receipts for proof of maintenance.

Spot Removal:
Please use our floor care charts as a guide in order to determine the best method to remove your carpet's particular stain. Please ask our floor care consultants about the best spot removal procedures and ask for a floor care chart.

MESSAGE FROM THE OWNER

INSPIRING.....CORPORATE CITIZENSHIP

We aspire to be a great corporate citizen by playing a leading role in influencing the community agenda, supporting the volunteer efforts of our associates and investing in the communities in which we live and serve. I encourage everyone to support a local community organization(s), whether it is a donation of time, business partnership or monetary. Collaborating is a great way to give back to the community as well as learn about various organizations and how they benefit and serve our community.

This month I would like to introduce you to two local community organizations that
A&H Flooring, LLC proudly supports:
  • The Metro-East Down Syndrome Alliance, an organization that consists of families and friends living in St. Clair County who care about someone with Down Syndrome and want to share in that experience. The Alliance meets on a monthly basis to talk as well as share ideas on creating awareness of Down Syndrome. They are associated with the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis.
  • Parent Teach Organization for Exceptional Children (PTOEC) consists of approximately 120 members and supports individuals with intellectual disabilities. PTOEC has partnerships with the Special Olympics and area schools. Their mission is to provide planned recreational activities as well as socialization and instructional opportunities for intellectually impaired individuals. Most recently, the group held a fundraising event that involved a mouse race. The room was full of fun and laughter, everyone cheering on their favorite mouse. The winning mouse earned his cheese, while friends and family earned the best prize of all, seeing smiles on faces and supporting a great cause!

What is Down Syndrome?
Down syndrome is a genetic condition that causes delays in physical and intellectual development resulting from the presence of an extra chromosome - individuals with Down syndrome have 47 instead of the usual 46. The presence of the additional genetic material alters development and causes characteristics that are associated with Down syndrome - including low muscle tone, small stature, an upward slant to the eyes and a single deep crease across the center of the palm.
