After some searching, we found this cabin style dog house on the Weather King’s website. The company that makes these spectacular dog houses is called J.C. Metal Building Sales. They first started by creating storage sheds, barns and lofted cabins. The are stationed in Deland, Florida and now make some of the best dog houses you could create. Each house can be customized with energy saving materials, AC, and other amenities.

Another great find from the world renowned artists at Beyond the Crate is the Georgetown dog house. The home is modeled after the homes in Georgetown. The amenities in this house are running water, heat, air conditioning, and lights. This one is slightly cheaper than other models with its price tag starting at only ,000.

Everyone knows this heiress gets exactly what she wants, including the most extravagant dog house for her many pups. The dogs reside in a two-story Italian style villa completed with roof tiles and wrought iron railings on the second-floor balcony. Inside you’ll find multiple dog beds, food and water stations, heat and air conditioning. Outside they have their own little fenced in yard complete with a tree to do their business. Money is certainly not something Paris worries about, which is probably why this dog mansion cost 5,000, she spared no expense.

#1 – Living in Luxury
Each and every one of these dog houses is luxurious and pricey beyond compare. This dog house, however, takes the cake as being the most expensive dog house in the world. It was commissioned by a surgeon in England back in the beginning of 2008. It is for her two Great Danes and costs just over 7,000. It includes everything you could image from sheepskin-lined, temperature-controlled beds, a 52-inch plasma screen tv, a 0,000 sound system to automatic dispensers, a saline treatment spa bath, and a retina scanner to keep out the common riff-raff.

Choosing a Professional Carpet Cleaner:

*Securing a reputable Carpet Cleaning Professional:

Nearly every household and business has carpeting in one or more of the rooms. Therefore, it is important to make sure the carpets are kept clean and fresh looking at all times. Therefore, it is important to choose a professional carpet cleaner that provides the kind of service you expect from a reputable professional.

It is very important to choose a professional carpet cleaner before you agree to have any cleaning work done within the home or office or both. Sometimes simple referrals can help you find a true professional that takes great pride in their work. Therefore, if a close friend or family member recommends a carpet cleaner make sure you meet with the person before you allow them to perform their services.

You can get a pretty good idea about a person as well as their business practices by simply meeting them and discussing the issue at hand. In addition, most reputable companies do have web sites. It may be helpful to check the web site for any comments or testimonials from satisfied customers.

Make certain the carpet cleaner completely explains their cleaning process. In addition, feel free to ask questions about the cleaning process, detergents used, environmental issues etc. Many people today are concerned about the use of harmful chemical cleaning agents. Therefore, make sure the carpet cleaner uses environmentally safe detergents and cleaners on your carpets.

Sometimes carpet cleaners will offer specials to new customers. For example, sometimes cleaners will clean one room at regular price and give discounted rates for additional rooms within the home or office.

Reputable carpet cleaners will move furniture into another room while cleaning the carpet. Furniture and accessories should be put back in their original place before the cleaner leaves for the day.

Therefore, there are a number of things to consider before securing a professional carpet cleaner. Checking out the background of a company can be done quite easily. In addition, word of mouth referrals or testimonials are a good way to verify customer feedback. Of course, many reputable companies are a member of the BBB (Better Business Bureau). You can make a simple call to the BBB any time during business hours. Some carpet cleaning services may even provide customers with before and after photos of their previous work.

Once the initial carpet cleaning job is completed, you can basically see for yourself if the person did a professional job. After the carpets dry they should be virtually spotless. If you are satisfied with the job then it is probably safe to say you found yourself a new carpet cleaning professional for the future.

Finally, carpet cleaning especially within the home should probably be done at least once every six months. Much of this depends upon how dirty the carpets may get. If children or pets are present within the home, more than likely the carpets will need to be cleaned more frequently.

Your carpet cleaner should provide exceptional cleaning service at reasonable cost. In addition, make certain your carpet cleaner is using allergen free and environmentally safe agents to clean your carpet. Many carpet cleaners offer “Scotchguard” to keep your carpets looking cleaner longer.
