Fun Facts Friday

Hi, and Happy Friday everyone! We had an idea to start a Fun Facts Friday every Friday morning on our Facebook page. We will answer this question by the end of the day that same Friday.

Each week, we will feature a question asked here on the website,  or on the Facebook page. We would love to answer your questions about kitchen hood cleaning, pressure washing or concrete cleaning.

We will also update this post each week, to show the previous asked questions. We can’t wait to hear your questions!
