We already knew the answers that the poll would provide but we made the calls anyway. Our question was very simple. "If two cleaning services submitted a price quote to clean your home or business and the prices were roughly the same price, and one company was certified and the other company was not would you pick the certified cleaning company or the non certified company?" Ask yourself the same question. The results: 187 potential customers picked the certified company. Don`t wait till your potential client asks you for a certification. Turn in your company education and training certificates with all estimates and proposals.

    An afternoon explosion in the small town of Allen, Neb. is leaving the community shaken up Thursday evening. Crews on the scene say a flash fire from a chemical explosion sent two people to the hospital.


    Investigators say two elderly people were just cleaning the bathroom inside Allen's former Village Inn, soon to be a new bar and restaurants when an explosion ripped through the room, sending both people to the hospital.


    "You never think in a small town like this it's going to happen, I mean what is there to explode?" said Connie Roberts, a teacher in Allen, Neb.


    But around 5 p.m. Thursday, an explosion at the former Village Inn rocked the small community of Allen, all from two people inside, cleaning.


    "Cleaning in the bathroom with chemicals, which caused the explosion," said Sara Kumm, Allen, NE EMT Rescue Captain.


    Allen Fire Chief Rod Strivens says an elderly man and woman inside quickly extinguished the flames from the flash fire caused by the explosion. Officials say there was minimal damage to the building, but the explosion sent both to the hospital. One person was taken to the hospital via life flight.


    "You just try to do whatever you can to help the guy as soon as you can," said Rod Strivens, Allen, NE Fire Chief.

    INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — If you have kids, experts say “buyers beware” of purchasing certain types of cleaning products, especially ones that children may think are their favorite food or drink.

    Dr. Mowry is a poison control specialist at Indiana University Health Methodist. He said their office in Indianapolis receives at least 2,000 calls of concern a year. Parents are usually on the other end of the phone wondering what to do if their child ingests an alcohol-based product.

    “It’s better to be safe than sorry by calling our toll-free number when in doubt,” said Dr. Mowry.

    Steve Price, a seasoned child care veteran of 32 years, agrees. Price overlooks more than 150 kids at Kidscape Childcare and Learning Center. Their roster is full with infants and children up to age 12.

    Price said he’s watched sanitation products go into the wrong hands. He recommends keeping them completely out of reach from children to avoid disaster.

    “I’ve seen them lick their hands, rub their eye and then scream in pain,” said Steve Price with Kidscape Childcare and Learning Center.

    This unfortunately happens one too many times according to Dr. Mowry, who often monitors the Poison Control Hotline.

    Spring gets all the credit as the season for cleaning. After being cooped up for months, the ritual makes sense. But fall cleaning can be just as important as spring cleaning. Take some time to tidy your home and your finances so you can enter winter with a fresh space and fresh mind. Here are some tips to help guide your fall cleaning below.

    fall cleaning spring cleaning

    Ditch the Clutter

    Summer can be a busy time and even if you went through your home in the spring, you might have accumulated more things you don’t need. This can also be a good time to re-evaluate summer items that you didn’t use all summer long. If you plan to just store them for another year, it might be time to get rid of them.

    It’s a good idea to evaluate what you have and separate them into categories. There are the items you want to keep, those you want to sell, those you want to give away or donate and those you want to throw away.

    Try doing an exchange with friends if you are looking for new-to-you items to replace the ones you are getting rid of. You could host a garage sale if you have enough stuff and you are looking to make some money. There may even be less competition for buyers than in the spring.

    You could also turn to online sales sites like eBay, Craigslist, Facebook and others. For the items you’ve designated to donate, or those that don’t sell, you can look to a local church or community center, the Salvation Army or Goodwill. It turns out your fall cleaning can even help you make a profit or receive tax breaks.

    The annual flu season is headed our way. So is the annual flu vaccine.

    But will this year's shot be more effective than last year's version, when an unexpectedly strong strain of flu walloped thousands of Californians?

    "We think it's better this year but won't know for certain until the flu season begins," said Dr. Erica Pan, Alameda County deputy health officer.

    Flu season typically runs from October through May, but in the Bay Area, peak season hits in January and February.

    Experts say the strength of the vaccine all comes down to how well manufacturers -- which work months in advance to produce shots -- predict the strains of flu that will hit us.

    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Tom Frieden receives a flu shot from nurse B.K. Morris during an event about flu vaccinations,

    Three kinds of viruses commonly circulate among people today, according to the Centers for Disease Control: two types of influenza A, H1N1 and H3N2, and influenza B viruses. The CDC said all of the 2015-16 vaccines will protect against those three viruses, and so far, health officials say, they appear to be on target.

    Dr. Scott Morrow, San Mateo County's health officer said flu vaccine predictions start early every year based on what kind of flu strains are hitting people in the Southern Hemisphere during their flu season, which is the opposite of ours.

    Manufacturers try to determine if the same flu strains will make their way to us in the Northern Hemisphere. Last year, Morrow said, "their guess was not as great as it could have been.''

     South Central Inc., a division of New York-based ABM Industries Inc. (NYSE: ABM), will cut approximately 260 Houston jobs due to the loss of a janitorial services contract.

    The company’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport worksite, 2800 N. Terminal Road, will close, and the jobs will be cut on Oct. 31, according to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification letter sent to the Texas Workforce Commission.

    ABM Janitorial Services – South Central Inc., a division of New York-based ABM Industries Inc. (NYSE: ABM), will cut approximately 260 Houston jobs due to the loss of a janitorial services contract at George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

    The employees do not have union representation, nor do they have bumping rights, meaning more senior employees cannot take the jobs of those with less seniority.

    ABM Industries is a building maintenance firm with a market value of $1.7 billion, according to StreetAuthority. Janitorial services account for about half of the company’s more than $5 billion in annual revenue, and ABM’s janitorial services market share is about five times that of its closest competitor, according to StreetAuthority.

    As of Oct. 31, 2014, the ABM Industries had about 118,000 employees companywide, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

    Penobscot County Jail

    BANGOR, Maine — There was a thick layer of dust on the air intake units at Penobscot County Jail, so about 40 inmates were shipped to other facilities earlier this week to allow cleaners access to the ducts blocked by bars, Sheriff Troy Morton said Friday.

    “It was filthy,” the sheriff said of the air cleaning units that were installed about 25 years ago. “It needed to be done.”

    There were no health problems reported before the cleaning, Morton said. The project started Monday, and several inmates have already returned, Morton said. The inmates were sent to Cumberland County Jail or Somerset County Jail.

    “We sent a friendly note to local [police departments] and the courts to let them know,” Morton said.

    Jail officials didn’t want local police or the court system to be caught off guard, in case they were looking for a specific person at the jail for interviews or for court, the sheriff said.

    “It’s an everyday battle,” Morton said, referring to the fact the overcrowded jail in Bangor typically boards out inmates on a daily basis.

    The jail has a listed capacity of 156 inmates, with an average daily population of 177 and typically boarding out 56 inmates at other facilities, officials said earlier this year.

    With the 40 displaced by the air duct cleaning project, the total boarded out Thursday was 90, the sheriff said.

    Jail officials also are taking advantage of the fact the cells are empty and are painting and cleaning them, Morton said. The paint and supplies cost around $3,500, he said, adding he didn’t know the expense of the duct cleaning work.

    “The labor is being done by inmates and supervised by our staff,” the sheriff said.

    A total of 16 inmates spent a portion of Friday cleaning and applying paint to the walls, Morton said.

    Photo - There is no getting around it. You can put it off as much as you want, but eventually you will have to clean. Why not have the best products on hand to make the job easier? Here are seven products that will change the way you look at cleaning. (Alexander Raths, © )

    There is nothing like having a clean house. It can make the difference between a stressful home or a peaceful one. Here are seven miraculous cleaning products that will change your life and make your home and family life that much better.

    1. A good vacuum

    I hated my carpet. We had only lived in our home three years and we already needed to replace the carpets. They were dingy, flat and definitely not something you wanted your kids playing on. Then, something came into my life that was a complete game changer. I got a new vacuum. I had a nice vacuum before; it’s a vacuum, and all it needs to do is suck up the gunk on the floor, right? WRONG. I discovered the powers of a Dyson Vacuum. This vacuum worked wonders on my carpets. They look brand new again. I vacuumed the day before with my old vacuum and it was shocking to hear and see just how much my Dyson picked up off the floor just a day later. My carpet is soft, clean and inviting now. Trust me, it is well worth the money spent. I spent more buying vacuum after vacuum before. Having a good vacuum changes everything.

    You can find Dyson products at any big retail store that sellss vacuums as well as by visiting You may also consider another great vacuum found

    2. Bar Keepers Friend

    This should really be named Bar Keepers BEST Friend. Seriously, this stuff is fantastic! I can't think of an area of my home I haven't used it on. You can use it anywhere, from outdoors right into your kitchen. I fell in love with this product when I was struggling with hard water stains on my glass shower. A friend recommended it to me, and as a last resort I gave it a shot. I was immediately hooked. After using it, you couldn't even tell there was glass there. It was perfect! It works great in the kitchen to shine up stainless steel sinks and even cookware.

    Bar Keepers Friend can be found at all retail stores. Visit www.barkeepersfriend.comfor more information.

    3. Mr. Clean Magic Eraser

    I bet I am not the only parent out there that has walked into a room to discover it newly redecorated with toddler artwork all over the walls. I don't panic anymore. I know that the Magic Eraser will get it off. I use this product on my walls way more than I should admit. It is also great for getting scuff marks off baseboards and for cleaning up dingy blinds. I have even used it to spruce up tennis shoes before handing them down to my next son. I always make sure to have one on hand. You never know when you will need it.
