News & Tips
The American Lung Association recently updated its information on carpeting and air quality. Carpets are notorious for trapping dust, allergens, and toxins in their fibers. On the one hand, this is beneficial because those harmful elements can be trapped in the pile and out of the air. But on the other hand, those pollutants can be released into the air at any time from regular traffic and use. The same things are true for all fabric and upholstery, including furniture, curtains, pillows, and mattresses.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), more than 20% of American households rely on a septic system rather than public sewer systems. That's over 60 million people, and about one-third of all new developments are designed with a septic system, making them an important part of the American ecosystem.
Pet stains can be especially difficult to clean, but there are two other factors that need to be considered as well: odor and behavior. After an accident, pets will be drawn to the same area again by the residual odor. This in turn will condition your pet to continue to use that area as its bathroom. Obviously you want to clean the area, but you also want to keep your pet from being attracted to the area.
Upcoming holidays mean family gatherings, parties with friends, and lots and lots of food - which adds up to a lot of kitchen cleanup. And nothing ends up working harder around the holidays than your sink drains and garbage disposals. Here are a few tips to help make your holidays a little bit easier this year.
There are dozens of recipes for homemade cleaners available, some more effective than others.

Carpet stains can be frustratingly difficult to remove. Due to a number of different stain substances and carpet materials, there are different remedies that are recommended to remove carpet stains. The most important first step is to always gently blot the stain with a dry, white towel. Never rub the stain as this can lead to saturation within the carpet fibers and make it more difficult to ever remove the stain entirely.
No matter how adorable your pet appears, even the best of them are prone to accidents. Pet stains and odors can be some of the most challenging messes to clean from carpets. Common tips involve moistening, spritzing, blotting, and using water, vinegar or light detergents. But many times you need something more to clean your carpets or upholstery. Stronger commercial products can offer varying degrees of success, but all of them contain chemicals which can damage your carpet, and worse, can harm your pets or your family. Earthworm® Pet Stain & Odor Eliminator is different.
According to the EPA, over 60 million people in America depend on septic systems to treat their wastewater. And while they tend to be utilized in rural and less populated areas, about one-third of all new developments are still designed with septic systems. Septic systems offer clean water and waste removal that is often more efficient, economical and environmentally friendly than giant water treatment facilities.
Odors from bathroom or kitchen drains can be some of the most unpleasant smells in your home. There can be many causes of these odors, but most of them can be prevented with regular maintenance. A smell like rotten eggs can be caused by bacteria growing on debris within your drain. A dank, musty smell is usually mold that had developed within the drain. If your house smells like sewage, that can indicate blockages in your pipes which are keeping the normal preventions from stopping sewer gases from entering your home. And if you have a garbage disposal, the gradual buildup of food particles, oils, fats, or coffee grounds can be the culprit.
