Looking forward into 2017, the big question for Calder Capital and our clients is: will it be a good year for small business mergers and acquisitions or not? Can we expect the positive trend of the last few years to continue, or will changes in politics and economics have a stifling impact on M&A? BizBuySell.com …
After you’ve found a beautiful area rug, and placed it in the perfect spot in your home, you’ll want to make sure you keep it nice so you can enjoy it for many years to come. The best rugs are art, after all, and art deserves to be respected and preserved. So what are some things you can do to maintain your rugs and keep them looking beautiful? Keep the dirt out of your house The best way to protect your rugs from the moisture, dirt, and pollen that will cause them to degrade over time is to limit their exposure to these things. Many cultures have the practice of removing shoes at the door so that dirt cannot be tracked in. In some of these countries that habit is entirely pragmatic since they do not have vacuum cleaners. Beating out a rug can be a huge job, but even in places with modern cleaning machinery, it’s best to stop dirt at the door. Put down a mat, and suggest your family and friends place their shoes on it. If the dirt makes it past the door, however, it’s still not too late. Regular sweeping of your floors will protect your rugs and will help keep pollution and allergens out of your home’s circulating air. Vacuum Most of us should be grateful for vacuum cleaners. They make our lives so much easier and cleaner. Are you vacuuming your rugs enough, though? Embedded dirt is worse for your rugs than surface dirt and harder to get out. Make sure you are vacuuming both the front and the reverse sides of your rugs as both get dirty over time, and work at least a weekly vacuuming into your cleaning schedule for best results. Deep cleaning Sometimes vacuuming just isn’t enough – you need to deep clean. If you have pets, young children prone to spilling sticky drinks, or have large or ground-in stains, you’ll have to either rent a steamer or call a professional. There is definitely a cost difference between the two, so factor in how valuable your rug is before deciding, but any carpet you want to keep for a long time will have to be deep cleaned every 12-18 months. Flip your carpet The traffic patterns of your house will wear a carpet down a certain way, so it’s good to turn the carpet around every 6 months in order to better distribute the wear. Sun can also be another concern. If only a part of a rug is in the sun, the fading will be noticeable over time. Turning it will help minimize fading and keep the whole looking beautiful. All of the above tips are good things to keep in mind if you have made an investment in your floors. Cleaning and vacuuming more often will also help your home environment to be more healthy and free from the dirt and allergens rugs can trap. Keep yourself, your family, and your rugs in better condition with some easy regular maintenance.

Bond Products’ motto has always been “Every hard floor needs a nice area rug.” Rugs are the products we’ve built our business around, and our product line is devoted to maintaining and improving all types of rugs.

As we come to the Christmas season and the end of 2016, it’s natural to look back at what the year held. For Bond Products 2016 was another successful year of creating relationships between great products and great customers. Here are the highlights of new products from our current catalog: Bond Products now offers 10 new cotton binding and serging tape colors. These additional color options bring the total to 60 tape colors for customers to choose from. Bond Products also has new color card inserts available with 70 colors of ¾ & 1-¼ inch widths of both cotton binding and serging tape (1-¼ inch only). As always, our quality cotton tape is woven, dyed, and finished right here in our family’s fifth generation 100+ year old Philadelphia textile mill. Custom dying is also available to match your color samples, so call for minimums and prices if you would like to extend your options. We also debuted our PBL-TXB Zig-Zag Tapestry Portable binder which comes with a tapestry guide and your choice of a narrow folder. This machine does the job of three other machines and is equipped with a zig-zag lockstitch that binds ¾ to 3-inch widths of tape in a single pass or a tapestry blind stitch up to 6-½ inches wide. It has a high lift needle for thick rugs, binds over 10 feet of carpet per minute, and is backed by Bond’s 90-day warranty. Beyond our catalog, it’s been a pleasure to serve both our local and the online carpet community. We opened our doors to people for our 2nd annual Spring Open House in May, offering free labor on portable binder repairs, free instruction and training, trade-in values, and discounts to our customers. We enjoy being able to interact directly with our new and old customers, helping them to get more out of their carpet binders so they can offer more and better services to their own customers. Every year offers unique opportunities and challenges, and 2016 was no different. Some of us will hold fond memories of it, while others are ready to say goodbye already. But for the year’s final days, we at Bond Products hope you have the best of holidays and will spend time with friends and family and celebrate your traditions and your faith with the freedom our forefathers ensured for all of us. With that, here is our Merry Christmas message to you and yours!
