One of the hardest odours or smells to get rid of in your home is tobacco smoke odour. The reason for this is it gets inundated in your walls, floors, carpets, upholstery and ceiling as well as into any cracks for crevices.

Pet Safe Carpet Cleaning Services, Ottawa, Ontario

Our four-legged friends are truly part of the family. But just as they are cute, cuddly and affectionate… they also can cause a lot of grief when they have “accidents” on our carpets.

When these situations arrive, it is really important to call a professional carpet cleaning service in Ottawa that specializes in Odour control and pet stain removal. The Ottawa Home Services Group are experts in Cat urine and dog urine removal.

Pet urine and feces, as well as vomit contain blood borne pathogens that if not treated will rapidly grow bacteria in your carpets. This bacteria will fester and cause odors that are NOT treatable with store bought enzymes.

They must be dealt with by a professional using the right products, procedures and with the training in order to achieve the results that you will be expecting.

Pet Safe Carpet Cleaning Is Our Specialty

Dogs and Cats are very sensitive to harsh chemicals that many carpet cleaners use in the Ottawa area. Ammonia and strong solvents can cause your pets grief and make them ill. With OHSG,  we use completely non-toxic cleaning solutions that are still equally as effective as the harsher non-green products that the majority of steam cleaning services Ottawa has working within its city.

Our products smell fresh, light and clean. You will love the refreshed look and smell to your rooms and furniture. Our method to furniture cleaning and upholstery cleaning is a combination of encapsulation and steam cleaning.

This allows your furniture and upholstery to be very deeply cleaned and at the same time, not being completely soaking wet.  This means a lower moisture cleaning than steam cleaning alone, and faster drying time.

Hoarding in Ottawa is a very common occurrence, in fact it is a statistic that on average 5% percent of the population actually has one form of hoarding issue varying in different stages.

Your Dream Home is a reality, with OHSG the top ottawa general contractors

Home renovations are exciting. Here are some great tips on how to get exactly what you want, and how to relay that information properly to your contractor.

First step is to decide what you want, color scheme, and of course your budget. This can give you the framework for what is realistic.

The next Step is to contact a minimum of 3 Ottawa General Contractors and compare services and prices. Please note, it is very important when comparing prices to compare apples to apples. It is easy to have a lower price, if the quality of the product, for instance granite or quartz is of lower quality, different colors, and different cut. This will make a huge difference in the final pricing.

The final step is to agree to the plan, and to sign an agreement to get started. Most contractors will ask for a deposit to start work and secure that things are agreed upon. For most jobs over 1000 a normal deposit is 40%

Ottawa Kitchen Renovations

 

Communication is the key to success, establish the best method to get updates and who your contact person is.

When work is being done in your home, it’s always exciting to see the progress and know how things are coming along. The problem with some companies simply put “the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing”. This can lead to frustration and overall lower customer experience.

With the Ottawa Home Services Group, we believe in making the whole process as transparent as possible for you the client. Our administration staff is here to serve you daily and will receive updates daily on all of the projects and can supply you with information either by email or phone.

 

Choosing a higher quality product sometimes may seem like you are paying more, but in the long run you will save money and be a lot happier.

There’s a saying…

 “It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money—that is all.  When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot—it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”

This is also very true when dealing with any service related business like Ottawa home renovations, bathroom renovations, kitchen renovations or granite countertops. You always have a lowest bidder, but in almost every case you get what you pay for.

Ottawa general contractors

 

But I do want to stop here and make a strong distinction between the Ottawa Home Services Group and our competitors. We do have a distinct advantage in our pricing, especially in the Ottawa Granite field because we are suppliers not just installers.  Our granite comes from Brazil, and has the most beautiful colors and is by far the highest quality.

Because of our huge resources, we can do anything under our own roof which saves you the client money and time. We don’t outsource, so our quality control is much higher. So rather than deal with several different Ottawa general contactors

Another is to look along carpets where the walls meet the floor, if you notice a black line along the edge as well as under doors this is filtration soiling and is another sign that you may need duct cleaning.

Do you know what are in your ducts?

 

Usually the first step is to have your air ducts inspected and cleaned by a reputable Ottawa duct cleaning service like Ottawa Home Services Group. Including in our duct cleaning is an inspection of your furnace and HVAC system along with some great suggestions on how to make things a lot better in the home, regarding air filtration and air flow.

Another very important thing is to change your furnace filter regularly. This is something so many people overlook, but the results are very apparent. If you keep your filters clean, you keep your duct work clean. This in turn will result in much more efficient air flow, a reduction on electricity and heating costs, and will be less stress on your HVAC systems overall.  This way you save money and your family’s health all in one step.

Ottawa GRANITE countertops and Quartz Countertops

Click here for more information on Granite and Stone products

 Here are some tips on how to choose the most exquisite Ottawa Granite countertops, as well as quartz and other popular stone materials.

 

When viewing and searching out Ottawa Granite countertops, there is an abundance of different supplier and installers. So how does one choose the best place to find quality  granite countertop in Ottawa?

First things first, not all granite is created equal. Depending on where it comes from, there will be a variance of the mineral composition that will result in different colors, quality and desirability.  Brazil is notably one of the best places in the world for producing the most desirable and beautiful granite. Many countries ship granite back to their factories so they can process and finish it. Even granite producing countries buy granite from Brazil. Here at the Ottawa Home Services Group we use Brazilian granite for our kitchen countertops and our bathroom counters. We want to give one the best, and we start by working with the best. Our polishing process is so fine that you don’t even need to re-seal it every year like some of the lower quality granite from China.

It’s important to note that the cut, thickness of the slab and quality of the stone makes a big difference in the final cost of the countertop. If you are comparing prices, you really have to compare equal quality products in order to really see what kind of value you are actually getting for your  dollar. This will make it a lot easier to compare when searching for Ottawa granite countertops.

Shown below is a quick video clip of a granite countertop being cut.
