Carpet Cleaning Tools of Yester-year

This Post is about the strange tools that used to be used back in the day..., and the "Facts" behind them, literally, as you'll soon read. 
 The "Carpet Beater" or "Rug Beater", also known by  a few other names, is a housecleaning tool that was in common use until the vacuum cleaner became affordable during the early 20th century
Carpet dusterCarpets, rugs, clothes, cushions, and bedding were hung over a clothesline or railing and the dust and dirt was beaten out of them. Typically made of wood, rattan, cane, wicker, spring steel or coiled wire, antique rug beaters have become very collectible. Its use in cleaning has been largely replaced since the 1950's by the carpet sweeper and then the vacuum cleaner.
 Other uses; In other parts of the world this tool also became quite handy for some parents who not only used it to beat the rugs, but to also discipline their children! Yes, it became "The  Spanker"which always left the tools distinctive pattern on the child's, well uh, behind! Some say this old fashion form of punishment has been extinct since the 1970's. 

The first Vacuum, Daniel Hess; invented a vacuum cleaner in 1860, calling it a carpet sweeper instead of a vacuum cleaner. It had a rotating brush like a traditional carpet sweeper, and also possessed an elaborate bellows mechanism on top of the body to generate suction of dust and dirt. Although he received a patent for his idea in 1860, it is not known if his invention went beyond paper. 

Ives W. Mc'Gaffey,  invention in 1868 was the first manually powered cleaner using vacuum principles, known as the Whirlwind. This piece of equipment was very similar to the appearance of modern vacuum cleaners today, but operated very differently. It consisted of a fan like propeller, driven by an actual crank, attached to the handle, that had to be turned at the same time you're pushing the vacuum across the floor!

FLOOR CLEANINGBack then the Whirlwind sold for $25, which would have been a true luxury product for that time period. It's not certain how successful the vacuum cleaner was since almost all of the Whirlwinds were lost in the Chicago fire of 1871. Today there are merely two of them left, one is in the Hoover Historical Center. The other is owned by a private collector.

Thats a fair point. Despite having a decent vacuum cleaner hanging our thicker rugs on the washing line and using a rug beater still does a great job. In fact its better than our vacuum could ever clean!


seher aniat on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 3:58 AM
"You have provided information about carpet cleaning process in Calla. The first thing any certified carpet cleaner like - carpet cleaning process in Calla must do is vacuum. Dry soil accounts for 80% of the dirt brought into homes. Once we spray the carpet dry dirt gets wet and can be nearly impossible to remove. Think of wet sand on the beach.

When you start up a business there are two key components that you need, a product to sell and someone who's willing to buy it. Carpet cleaning is not rocket science but does require knowledge on general carpet cleaning, stain removal and knowing the limitations of what your equipment can handle.

Sending Bulk Emails: Quick Tips and Tricks for Success Focus: Sending bulk emails Other: Sending bulk emails, Email Sending software, Email Marketing, Send emails without spam So, your business has finally started getting traction. You have started to get mass leads, and even better, you can even talk to them- by simply sending bulk emails. But have you ever launched an email campaign to your subscriber list and got no response? Or have you ever wondered whether your emails were opened or were just marked as spam? Well, we all have emails that we don’t read, ignore, or immediately delete altogether! So there are chances that your email is not even catching your audience eye. As long as you are not a being part of email blast or spam, it’s time that you maximize the potential of your campaigns. According to research by Direct Marketing Association, email campaigns generate an ROI of 4300% and are 40X more effective than Facebook and Twitter combined. Whether you are new to sending bulk emails or are a seasoned pro, this article will walk you through the quick tips and tricks for a winning e-mail campaign. Personalize Your Mass Email Campaigns Personalized emails improve click-through rates and also increase the conversions at a significant pace. Don’t jump on forcing the familiarity with the customer! Instead, send the email that acknowledges the individuality of a subscriber like his purchase history or something that is part of his wish list/cart. For example: placing the customer’s name in your email shows a little importance, but personalizing it according to recipient’s specific details always showcases an extra effort. Also, make sure that you follow the below tips before you start sending bulk emails: • Send mass emails only to your subscriber list as untargeted emails are simply marked as spam. • Be honest about your campaigns. • Whenever you are sending bulk emails, optimize them for all devices so that the users can read the emails according to their convenience. Do Not Understate The Power Of Subject Lines Your subject line should be something that prompts them to click on an email or intrigues them on knowing more. It is the first chance that you can use to connect with your potential customers. When it comes to writing that perfect subject line, make sure you use those 60-70 characters wisely. According to a research, 900 emails were tracked, and it was found that there is no increase in the CTR at the character length of 60 and 70. So, subject lines that come up as most beneficial should lie below 50 characters. “Short, Catchy, and Beneficial”! • Shorter subject lines are less likely to cut-off and hence get a higher response rate from the customer. • Personalize the subject line! Not by adding the brand name, but by adding the email recipient first or the last name. • Don’t include words like Free, Cash, and other trigger words. And never write the subject line in CAPITALS. Focus On The Overall Email Design Even the most promoted email campaigns don’t show effective results if it does not display properly. No matter which email sending software you use or what you are offering, email design will always be of utmost importance.

Send Emails On A Prime Time The prime time for sending bulk emails is from 08:00 PM to midnight. This time block not only gives better open rates but also positively impacts the clicks and sales. Moreover, Saturdays and Sundays also work in favor of the email campaigns. The volume of email sent on weekends and evenings is quite low and allow your messages to stand out. But do not stay at any one-time block. Different time slots work according to the different business and their target audiences. So keep testing and figure out when your target opens the e-mail and responds to it.
