Bed Bugs from the Shelf

My home suffered an infestation of bed bugs last month. The little devils would bite me in my sleep and poop in the bed. I’m lucky that they didn’t give me any diseases. I tried vacuuming them away, but they kept coming back. I washed my sheets, but they still kept coming back. There was nothing I could do to get rid of them, so I had to call for bed bug removal in Brooklyn NY. The professionals were better equipped to deal with the problem than I was, so I left the task of removing the bugs in their capable hands.

While the professionals were getting rid of the bugs, I couldn’t live in my home because of the chemicals used to kill the bugs. I check into a hotel for a week, and it was like taking a vacation. The home away from home had its own pool and gym, which I used every morning before getting a continental breakfast. The chefs really knew how to cook some great french style scrambled eggs. When the maids came to clean the rooms, I left and walked around the city. There were some restaurants that I had been meaning to try, but never got the chance to go to them, so I visited a couple.

The professionals called me at the hotel and told me that the bugs were dead and I could move back into my home. They also told me a surprising thing about an item in my home. Apparently, there as a piece of furniture that the bed bugs were coming from and spread to the rest of the house. It was a book shelf that I had gotten from a local furniture store. I had a funny feeling about that book shelf, but I couldn’t put my finger on it.

Getting a New Kitchen Will Be Great

I try to take good care of everything in my home. But with 9 different rooms, 4 children, a husband and four pets, it is hard to keep everything looking good. I often find that I need to spend more time with family, and I have less time to keep things looking nice for everyone. And they all love when mom keeps things clean and good looking. So after 10 years in a kitchen that was already 25 years old, I asked my husband if we could find a company that does kitchen remodeling in Bergen County NJ to freshen up our kitchen.

I do not ask for much. I am someone who likes to go to thrift stores for my clothing. I find a lot of name brand things there, and no even knows that the nice suit I wore to work cost only $5.00. I do everything that I can to save money. So, I really felt that it was my turn to ask if we could do something that would make me happy.

Originally, my husband said that he would take charge of making changes to our kitchen. But I know him well. He doesn’t walk the walk! He does like to talk a good game, though. So, I told him that I would prefer if we could bring in true professionals who could get the job done in a timely manner and make sure that everything looks professional and nice. He finally relented, and I was elated.

I did price comparisons between different companies. I found one that offers great discounts, depending on what you have done. And they do a lot of things in earthy tones, which is something else that I really liked when I saw their portfolio online. I called and asked them to come help right away.
