Trip Guide: Dallas Design District
When you think of Dallas, you think of shopping. And when you think of shopping in Dallas, you think of the sleek storefronts of Highland Park Village and the groomed grounds at NorthPark Center. I’m all for glitz, but when I want to sate my itch for the finer things in life, I head to the Design District, that scuffed-up pocket bookended by the Trinity River and Interstate 35 just northwest of downtown…
How to Make Your Bedroom A Relaxing Retreat

To keep carpets looking nice, Paul Iskyan, owner of Rug Renovating, suggests taking off your shoes when you get home… but leave your socks on because walking around in bare feet leaves natural oils that attract dirt.
Try to vacuum every day and use a top-load vacuum, so the dirt falls inward, and HEPA filters. Change the filters often, so you don’t blow pollutants back into the air.
For less-trafficked areas, you can get away with cleaning the carpets once or twice a year, and every 18 months for a bedroom.
For higher-traffic areas, the most often you’d need to bring in professionals would be three or four times a year, although once you see that your carpet’s dirty, you probably should have it cleaned for health reasons.

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.
