THE BOOK

Not only is our founder an entrepreneur, she’s also a best-selling author. In 2013, Gabler released her autobiography, which chronicles her rise to prominence from shattering the glass ceiling in the male-dominated halls of Wall Street to establishing the luxury linen market in the US. And thanks to her business savvy and trademark sophistication, she has also become a sought-after speaker. True to form, Gabler weaves one interesting story after another.

Thirty-Five Years in Business

Fabric Protection and Cleaning

When I was 30 years old I started FiberCare Inc., not because I always wanted to be in business but because I didn’t want to teach, I didn’t want to look for a job, and I loved the fabric protection and service business.

Here it is 35 years later and we are still going strong with a high end cleaning business added on.

I could toot my own horn saying most businesses fail in the early years, or even brag that even with a Master’s degree I had never had a business class. I didn’t even know which was net and which was gross, to my Father’s chagrin. So, what was the secret to creating a long lasting business?

The first thing is obvious, hard work. I worked hard during the week and spent the weekends doing paperwork with no computer just a calculator and a few friends doing secretarial duties.

The second thing, was customer service, I offer/ offered a terrific product and caring for my customer was always most important. The third thing was integrity.

I learned quickly that everyday in business is an integrity test. Would I give this designer a bigger referral fee just because my competitor would? Would I give this customer a discount because they were trying to intimidate me by losing a big job if I didn’t ? Would I allow a furniture store to use my company’s good name (FiberCare) but charge inflated prices?

These morality questions weighed hard on me the first months in business, I didn’t like it that everyday I had to deal with these emotional dilemmas. So I made a decision. Integrity is black and white, just like the truth. I would ALWAYS take the high road, my company would always have integrity. I would not be intimidated by the very rich, I would not have my arm twisted by the powerful furniture stores and I will not be threatened by fear or blackmailed by what someone will write on the Internet.

So, thank you to my clients, my designers, my friends, my trusted employees and Patrick, who have all contributed to 35 great years of taking excellent care of your fine furnishings. I have a computer now, I don’t work all weekend anymore but integrity, that hasn’t changed. It’s still black and white.

Sincerely,
Joan Friedman

Upholstery Cleaning Tips

 

The Cleaning Company

The best way to clean is with water. If your fabric can be wet cleaned that is how we will clean it. First we will vacuum, then we will pre-spray spots to loosen that particular type of stain. Then we will spray the entire piece of furniture with a live enzyme that has a soil releasing agent, then we will rinse the furniture with a special additive. This additive “invites” or “attracts” the soil to it, taking or transferring the soil from your furniture into itself and out of your fabric. The rinse water is not recycled, and your furniture is left nearly dry.

Home Cleaning Tips – Eliminating Odors, Deep Carpet Cleaning and a More Powerful Vacuum Cleaner

Cleaning Windows - Home Improvement

Do you need to eliminate odors from your furniture? Using carpet and upholstery deodorizers with baking soda is one of the best ways to get rid of unpleasant odors. You can even use plain baking soda in some cases, since it can trap the invisible molecules that cause the odors.

One of the best ways to give your carpet a deep cleaning is to steam clean it. This is also known as hot water extraction and involves using a mixture of hot water and detergent to remove dirt and debris from your carpets.

When you purchase your sofa or chair, ask the retailer for an extra set of arm covers. That way, you always have a set available when it is time to clean the ones in use.

Did you know window blinds can help you save money on your utility bill? In the summer, direct sunlight on windows forces your cooling system to work harder. Blinds can lower the temperature in your home by blocking sunlight.

When you change your vacuum cleaner’s bag, take a minute to look inside for loose carpet fibers. If you see clumps of the material, your cleaner is not cleaning deeply enough. Consider changing to a more powerful vacuum cleaner.

5 House Cleaning Tips – Leather Furniture, New Rugs, Sun Damaged Carpets

Leather Sofa Stain Cleaning

One of the easiest ways to maintain your leather furniture is to keep it out of direct sunlight, since this can dry the leather and cause it to crack eventually. You can also use covers or throws to protect your leather from dirt and dust.

Sun can damage carpet. If you have carpet that receives full sun for the majority of the day, consider installing draperies or sheers to help lessen the impact. Window tinting will also help prevent fading.

Once you have brought your new rug home, read the manufacturer’s instructions carefully for recommendations on cleaning spills and spots, and what cleaning fluids to avoid. Some cleaners may stain or attract dirt.

When you vacuum your carpet, take a few extra minutes to vacuum your upholstered furniture. Remove the pads and vacuum them, and then vacuum the bed of the chairs and sofas. Use the crevice attachment to clean in the creases.

Did you know that harmful bacteria and viruses such as MRSA, Sars, Avian Flu, E. coli, and Salmonella can actually accumulate on your blinds? Regular professional cleanings of your blinds can help increase the overall healthiness of your living space.
