Featured carpet cleaning service area: Egg Harbor Township

Great Egg Harbor got its name from Dutch explorer Cornelius Jacobsen Mey. In 1614, Mey came upon the inlet to the Great Egg Harbor River. The meadows were so covered with shorebird and waterfowl eggs that he called it "Eieren Haven" (Egg Harbor).

The first residents of what would become Egg Harbor Township were the Lenni Lenape Native Americans, who would spend their summers on the elevated land around the cedar swamp that is now Bargaintown Lake, as well as along the banks of Patcong Creek, where they made use of the abundant fish, shellfish, wild berries, and bird's eggs in the area and collected shells that could be carved to make wampum.

Great Egg Harbor was originally part of Gloucester County. In 1694 a law was passed that read "forasmuch as there are families settled upon the Egg Harbor, and of right ought to be under some jurisdiction, be it enacted by the authority aforesaid that the inhabitants of the said Egg Harbor shall and do belong to the jurisdiction of Gloucester."

In 1710, by an Act of the Legislature, legal boundaries of Gloucester County were set from the Delaware River, along the Burlington County line to the sea and back up the Great Egg Harbor River to the Delaware River. At that time Great Egg Harbor encompassed all of present-day Atlantic County. In 1837, Atlantic County was set apart from Gloucester County and the Townships were Egg Harbor, Galloway, Hamilton and Weymouth.

Since 1837, ten municipalities have separated from the original Egg Harbor Township, including Atlantic City (1854), Absecon (1872), South Atlantic City (now Margate) (1885), Somers Point (1886), Pleasantville (1888), Linwood (1889), Longport (1898), Brigantine (1903), Ventnor (1903) and Northfield (1905).

The 177th Fighter Wing is located at the Atlantic City International Airport, Egg Harbor Township, NJ. The wing has been at this location since 1958.

South NJ Craigslist? How can you trust who you hire: 5 tips

There are a million ways to find someone to do a service for you. But how can you be sure that you won't be stuck with problems afterwards? You want to find not just a carpet cleaning service that is priced right and who does a good job, you want to find a carpet cleaner in South New Jersey you can trust. Here are some tips for locating a reliable contractor for any service but especially for someone who is going to come inside your home. Don't be the next victim of a Craigslist scam! Protect your pets, your family and your things by choosing the right carpet and tile service company.

1. Ask friends who they recommend

Today this is easier than ever. With social networking the huge advantage is that you can quickly ask many people who they use. We mainly use Google+ and Twitter for our recommendations.

2. Are they insured and licensed?

This may seem like a no brainer but many today will run a carpet cleaning route with nothing more than a residential Home Depot carpet cleaner in the back of their truck. This is not going to get your carpets clean and without the proper water extraction it will also leave your carpet wet and damaged. He might be a nice guy but if something goes wrong and he doesn't use the right chemicals, he could do more damage than good to your carpets, rugs and furniture as well. Make sure that they are insured for peace of mind!

3. Are they locally and nationally certified?

Use someone who can be verified by a third party organization. We are a member of the IICRC and The Clean Trust. This will keep you clear of scammers and will also help to make sure you have someone safe working in your home.

4. Do they show up when they say they will?

We want to pick someone we can rely on. While things come up for everyone no matter how hard they try to be reliable. Ask: Is it the norm or the exception that they are there when they said they would be? This can signal a reliable quality company vs the alternative. 

5. Do other professionals recommend them?

Use someone others have used and trust. Don't use an unknown guy or company. 

Use someone others have used and trust. Don't use an unknown guy or company. 

We get calls all the time from customers that tell us someone else in the industry recommended they talk to us. We are flattered and love this. It really is one of the best signs that a company is trustworthy. Why? Because whoever recommended you just put their reputation on the line. They wouldn't do this unless they were sure you could be trusted.

Is Your Carpet Dirtier Than A Toilet Seat? YES!

Carpet is a great choice for your home but like anything it needs to be cleaned regularly. It adds warmth, comfort and feels good on bare feet. But because of all the traffic it encounters, it tends to get pretty dirty over time. In fact, according to Men's Health, it's a germ hotspot and can be 4,000 times dirtier than your toilet seat -- ew! "Rugs are botanical and zoological parks," microbiologist Dr. Philip Tierno told the magazine, and mentioned that they can have many different organisms living in them. 

So what's the best way to clean a carpet? Well, Men's Health suggests hiring a professional once a year for a deep steam-cleaning. But weekly maintenance is super important as well. TLC's How Stuff Works recommends vacuuming regularly and applying soil retardants and baking soda to the surface.

We knew this wall-to-wall textile could end up spotty, but we had no idea there could be so many creepy crawlers lingering in the fibers. So be sure to pay extra attention to your rugs this weekend if you're doing some spring cleaning. 

For more information, head on over to Men's Health and TLC. And be sure to contact Foggs today if you haven't had your carpets cleaned in a while. 

In the meantime check out these tips!

Wall-to wall carpeting is virtually impossible to clean thoroughly, but here are some tips to help:

  1. Encourage family members to remove shoes upon entrance into the home. Pesticides, pollutants and dirt come indoors on shoes and are tracked onto carpets. If going shoeless is not acceptable to family members, suggest that they wear house shoes (that don’t go outside), slippers or socks. 

  2. Vacuum two or more times per week. Frequent vacuuming helps reduce the level of dust mites, which trigger asthma and allergy attacks. It also means getting rid of surface dirt on carpets before it has a chance to get ground in. A vacuum cleaner with strong suction, rotating brushes and a HEPA filter, so the dirt and dust won’t get blown back out in the exhaust, is best. Go back and forth over the same spot several times, especially in high traffic areas, to get all of the dirt and dust!

  3. Clean up spills on carpets immediately to prevent stains. Soak up liquid spills by covering them with clean white (or light-colored) towels or paper towels. Scrape sticky substances off carpets with a spatula or spoon. Don’t rub the spill. That will damage carpet fibers and make the stain spread. To clean the stain, mix 1 cup warm water and 1/2 teaspoon mild liquid soap, such as dishwashing liquid or fine fabric detergent. Apply a small amount, blot by pressing a clean white towel into the carpet and lift. Then repeat the process until the stain is removed. Don’t scrub. Be patient. After stain is removed, rinse the area with a solution a few teaspoons of white vinegar to one cup water and blot with another clean towel. 

  4. Use baking soda to remove odor from carpets. Carpet deodorizers and fresheners often contain fragrances that merely mask the smell. Baking soda soaks up the odor. Just sprinkle baking soda over the surface of the carpet. Let it stand for 15 – 30 minutes. Then vacuum. 

  5. Ventilate well during and after carpet cleaning. To speed drying time and prevent mold growth, keep windows open and use fans. Avoid carpet cleaning on humid or damp days.
