Before and After Photos of the Week

March 19, 2014 1 comment

Ready for another round of Before & After photos? Of course you are!

This week, we’re featuring the great work of Clean Cut Carpet Cleaning in Australia, who were called in to take care of a hallway that had seen better days. Chris from Clean Cut wrote this on Facebook:

The Bat signal was shone in the dark skies over Melton today. Dropping everything and rushing to the scene of the crime I found this sad and abused young carpet. He had aspirations to be a good shag, but alas, this little carpet is destined to remain a rental quality sisal. That still doesn’t excuse the torture he’s been forced to endure though!


He wasn’t kidding! This poor carpet has definitely been abused. Let’s see how it looks after a visit from the “Batmobile.”


Holy hamburgers, Batman! Those stains sure took a beating!

Here’s what Chris had to say about the job, after the fact:

It was a close one but this young carpet will live to serve another tenant. I spoke to his young rug after the ordeal and she was just thankful that her mat was ok, and that their 3 little off cuts wouldn’t be without a father. She was quoted as saying “Thank you, Batman! When life walks all over you, it’s good to know that someone is there to save the day!”

Brilliant work, Chris, and thanks for sharing!

Friday Funnies: More Cleaning Memes

November 8, 2013 1 comment

We made it through another week! Well, maybe that’s not a major accomplishment, but it definitely calls for some celebration. Here are some goofy cleaning-themed “memes” to help make your Friday a little sillier:


Dear Father, the floor might not seem gross from the distance at which you normally observe it, but I must say if you take a peek from MY height you may be surprised by its filth. Sincerely, ~Baby.


“Yes, some of our clients are Fortune 500 companies and our services come highly recommended by many successful local businesses. What’s that? Oh, don’t mind that – we spilled paint on the floor two years ago and just decided to leave it that way.”

It’s the Return of the Dog Jedi!

Ah yes, of course the cat put that hairball in the corner to contribute to the room’s ambiance

Why is “dogs playing poker” such a well-known painting? Dogs have the worst poker faces!

Friday Funnies: Cleaning-Themed Memes For Your Social Media

To celebrate a long week of hard work, here are some funny pictures you can share with your followers!

Taking Some Mud Inside

The perfect example of “kid logic.” We’re having so much fun with this, why not take it inside where it’s warm? Good thing there are professional carpet cleaners in the area!

Beautiful Dust Mite

This is the stuff that nightmares are made of! Dust mites look like disembodied hands with pointy fingers and creepy hairs.. and a crab-claw for a head… okay, enough of that. As terrifying as it is, hopefully this image will get your clients thinking about how long it’s been since the last time they hired a cleaning service!

Dueling Pets

Ah yes, the eternal “stain blame” game.

Rearranged Furniture

Consider this classic post-party cleanup tactic officially foiled. Try again, kiddos!

Have a great weekend, folks, and make sure to get your quota of R&R.

It’s Friday once again, which means that it’s the perfect time for a laugh. We have been making “memes” like these for a few weeks now to share on Facebook – if you want more, check out ServiceMonster’s page and share them with your friends!



Personally, I would much rather see the cat clean out its own litter box, or – better yet – learn to use the toilet. What do you think?


How often do you get called from folks who tried some DIY cleaning technique they read about on Pinterest? If only people would take the time to ask a professional, they could save themselves some money and avoid a big hassle!

That’s all for this week: have a great weekend everyone!

Friday Funnies: Dogs

At the end of a long week spent working “like a dog,” it feels good to take a moment to reflect on the goofy side of life.

Here are some cleaning-themed images featuring crazy canine behavior for your enjoyment:

Free Window Washing

We admire the enthusiasm, Rover, but you should stick to hole-digging.


Be careful of the static electricity – it will fry your brain!

Sweeping Dog

Good boy! Now it’s time to learn how to use the truck-mounted carpet cleaner.

Have a great weekend everyone!
