Traffic at kidney shape roundabout

Quinton from Milson

Has anyone else experienced the major traffic backing up on both Gilespie and Tremaine coming into town? Its like our city exploded with traffic. I think the council might need to think of alternative traffic management there as they constantly need to patch holes there too.

So, you’ve finally chosen that fabulous wallpaper to showcase your style but how do you best look after it to keep it looking fresh and clean?

Many a foreign object can flick onto the surface of the wallpapers in your home that can range from food to crayon to fly spray, the list goes on. Like any textile, wallpapers do need a little bit of love every now and then, a regular wipe down with a clean cloth should keep dust and marks at bay however there are times when there may be the need for a more deeper clean.

To better understand how to care for your wallcoverings we need to first understand the different types of wallpaper on the market and their cleaning durability. The main three classifications are:

1. Washable: Coated papers (light weight vinyl) would fall under this category. A mild detergent and water can be used to occasionally wipe surface of wallcovering. Not suitable for high traffic areas due to light cleaning and inability to remove stains or contaminants without damage.

2. Scrubbable: Generally heavy vinyl’s, these types of wallcoverings are suited to higher traffic areas as they can withstand scrubbing to remove stains and dirt more effectively.

3. Spongeable: The most delicate of the three methods with wall coverings primarily used for decorative effect (uncoated). Best maintained by using a dry clean sponge/eraser or with a lightly dampened cloth and avoiding heavy water use.

She was turning right on Tremaine Avenue in a black Mazda Axela (near Kruzin Kustoms) and a white work Van ran into the back of her flipping her car around 180 deg. The driver stopped and took her details but she didn't get his. If you are the owner of the vehicle than ran into my daughter last Saturday of if you witnessed the accident could you please get in touch. Because my daughter is only 17yr the insurance excess is prohibitive. We are hoping the owner of the white van will come forward. Many thanks

How to Fix a Carpet Dent from Heavy Furniture

It’s a moment of horror – moving a piece of furniture and realizing what it’s done to the carpet. In fact, some people even refuse to move their furniture around because they don’t know how to get rid of the carpet dents that the heavy pieces have left. Luckily, there is a fix!

The only things you’ll need are ice cubes, and a vacuum or hairbrush.
1. Place an ice cube on the dent. If the dent is large or long, use extra ice cubes as needed
2. Allow the ice cubes to melt.
3. Once the ice cubes have melted, the carpet will fluff back up.
4. After the area has dried, vacuum over the dents or gently use a hairbrush to further fluff the carpet if needed.

Additional Tips:
Moving furniture a few inches at regular intervals can help prevent carpet dents from becoming severe. Every couple months, scoot the couch or other heavy items a couple inches to one side and fluff up the dents. If this is done, the dent can often be fluffed simply with your fingers; no water necessary.

Scraping a coin over the dent can also work to fluff it up if your fingers alone aren’t getting the pile back up.

Another method of fluffing the carpet is to use a spray mister to slightly wet the dent, then use a hair dryer on warm or cool air (holding it several inches away from the carpet) to dry the area while gently fluffing up the pile with your fingers or a hairbrush.

Another method of fluffing the carpet is to use steam. Hold a clothing or upholstery steamer several inches above the carpet and quickly blast the dent with steam. Let the dent cool, then use your fingers or a hairbrush to fluff it up. However, most carpets are nylon, and nylon can melt easily, so it’s best to test the steam on a small hidden area first, such as in the corner of a closet, to see how the carpet fibres react to the heat. Again, be sure to hold the steamer several inches away from the carpet when applying the steam.
