Is Asheville a Green City?

The city of Asheville in North Carolina is known for being one of the healthiest and best places to live in the US.  So what makes this city so healthy? Well for one it is located near the mountains and is home to a lot of spiritual artists and other green oriented people.  There are many different yoga places, vegan restaurants, health stores, and other cool things.  The vibe in asheville is laid back and friendly which makes it a great place in general for anyone to stay. We will go over some reasons why we think this is a good place for people that like to be healthy.

Invest in the Healthy Initiative

Asheville was selected by the reinvestment fund and the Robert Wood Johnson foundation to participate in a brand new health initiative.  It’s aim is to improve health and income in low income neighborhoods and will be implemented in around 4-0 cities across the country.  It was chosen out of roughly 180 teams that applied for the initiative. This goes to show just how the government and the people view the city of asheville.

Businesses In Asheville

There are many different types of businesses in Asheville and they all try to do their part to keep the city environmentally friendly.  Trades are notorious for being unhealthy and wasting resources, etc.  However Asheville plumbing companies for example have gotten a lot better at caring and being good to the environment.

Overall the city of Asheville definitely deserves its title as one of the healthiest cities in the states.  We highly recommend that you check it out and maybe you will end up staying for a while.

We Got Our Carpets Cleaned at Our NC Office

Recently at out North Carolina office there was a bit of an accident after a staff party.  The carpets ended up getting stained very badly when a bunch of wine was spilled all over them.  Luckily we hired a professional carpet cleaner and the stains were removed quite easily.

The company that we hired was a good and got the job done quickly.  They does carpet cleaning in Huntersville, Mooresville and Davidson NC mainly.  So if you are in need of those services then we can highly recommend him.

Before we hired a professional we had attempted to take care of it ourselves but it didn’t work out.  We just didn’t have the correct tools and equipment so it actually ended up getting worse when we smeared the stain instead of blotting it like we should have.


A great tip that we learned was to vacuum waaay more often than we had been.  Apparently it is optimal to vacuum at least 3 times a week or more in high traffic areas.  We had been doing once a month maybe so lesson learned there.  Also placing welcome mats is another thing that should be done to give people some incentive to wipe off their dirty shoes.  And finally a sign asking people to remove their shoes is something that gives a bit of extra insurance as well.

If you happen to take action quickly you actually can get a stain out of carpet as well.  What you need to do is blot it, not smear with vinegar or club soda and that will usually work.

Heres a cool video with some more tips if you ever find yourself in the situation of needing to clean your carpets.
