Some of the next steps to take after flooding damages your home.
Not a bad Mediterranean buffet place: you get a fresh baked Adana or Chicken Kebab with your buffet offerings of the usual salads, mezze items, and soups.A fresh basket of pita bread is hand delivered to the table when you sit.The fresh tea is delicious.
Always good for breakfast: I enjoying the meat lovers omelet with crispy hash browns with toast or if I’m especially hungry the biscuit (no gravy).Ice tea is always good here and fresh.
Ordered the Eggs Benedict, comes with home fries and “fruit”: all tasted delicious except for the fact that both of the eggs where in the one English muffin half. It was quite the challenge to slide it back.Yikes!
It was a amazing experience last night, the wait staff and all the managers were very accommodating to our needs , the food was amazing I highly recommend Earl's kitchen thank you!
Pretty disappointing. I've been to other Saravana Bhavans around the world and the Plano location was disappointing. First off, the dosa we ordered was soggy and not crispy... Once we complained, they came back with a crispy one. The potato filling was very bland and with raw onions.. So the after taste was pretty bad. I had the executive thalidomide with different types of rice and that wasn't bad, have the 2 stars. Even the host was really not helping and didn't know what to suggest. It seemed as if she was shocked as we didn't know the subtle differences between their dishes. I wouldn't go back again... Taj grocers' dosa and sambhar was better tasting.
Excellent Dallas SEO agency. Really does go the extra mile to try to get results for clients. Great PPC folks as well.
Relaxing atmosphere, decor is modern yet comfortable, service is personable but not intrusive, prices are just right, and the food is DELICIOUS. Creative menu, great variety, portions are generous and includes items for kids. The owner is on-site and can make recommendations from the menu for your taste as well as from the ample wine selection. The Sunday Brunch menu has more selections. I am definitely going back!
Went on Saturday 1/23/16. Worst service I've EVER experienced in a restaurant. 1000 Words are not near enough to explain. Will never go back there, and wouldn't think of recommending it to anyone else. No Bartender ( & waitresses too young to serve). Ran out of bottled beers after only a few had been served. Taps didn't work. Others sat at bar. They placed a beer order, only to be told that "we don't have that beer. How about one of these bottles ? " BTW: they didn't find this out until they got tired of waiting and finally asked someone why their beer hadn't been served! They left in disgust.When we arrived, the restaurant hadn't made any arrangements. When they finally DID move tables together for our party of 10, it was for only 8 seats! We had to find another table and two more chairs! And we had to move them! No menus were given us: we 'stole' them from other tables where they were unused. Food was marginal at best (and one of our party was too disgusted to even eat!)
First the good: Excellent tasting Chennai style food. Decent ambience for a HSB. Prompt and courteous service.Now the bad: For crying out loud, do they even realize that Plano IS in Texas where everything is oversized when it comes to food? We ordered Ghee Pongal for 7.50 and what we got was quantity that will fill a 5 year old, no more. Mysore Bonda at 3 for 5.99 is a bit pricey but not quite the ripoff Pongal was. Special meals at 11.99 was decent, and good portion, though I had to order an extra plate of rice to finish off all the side dishes. Again guys, do us a favor and increase the portion sizes. It is painful to see your servers apologize for the small portions.The crowd will stop when they leave your premises hungry. Coffee at 3 bucks was authentic south Indian and piping hot. Again a suggestion here... Some people may prefer to add more sugar. So would it hurt to send a packet or two of sugar along?The Ugly: $38 including tax and tips for 2 people sounds excessive. I must say there was nothing left in the plates when we were done.
So it's a diner, and not a chain: the kind your parents or grandparents used to go to when eating out. That's it, no magic, family owned, you either like that format or not.These folks used to be at a dumpier location the last time I dine with them so this location is an improvement.Like many mom-pop diners service may be great or lousy, food is either spot on or misses. This day I went for one of the specialty omelets and enjoyed it, but service was spotty bordering on absent. Oh well.
Mistakes happen, and when it comes to owning a carpet or rug, mistakes usually mean stains. The plush softness of carpet and rugs comes with a price: the time and care required to clean them. Cleaning your carpet or rugs can require some extra work and special techniques that differ from typical hardwood or tile floors. In some cases, you may even need to hire a professional to get the best results.
For minor stains or routine cleaning, it's possible to effectively treat a carpet or rug yourself. If a thorough vacuuming doesn't get rid of dirt in certain areas, here's how to tackle them on your own.
A number of liquids can stain carpet or rug materials, including wine, coffee, nail polish, or blood, to name a few. Depending on what caused the stain, the carpet or rug's material, and how long it's been there, you may need to use different techniques or cleaning supplies to get rid of it. In general, though, keep the following ground rules in mind for stain removal:
Take these steps to remove a stain as soon as possible to prevent drying.
Some stains may come out with little more than water or a mild soap. More serious stains may require a solvent to make removal easier. The best solvent to use depends on what caused the stain.
-Water-soluble stains: These include berries, cola, food dye, jelly, mud, washable ink, or wet paint. Mix a solution of 1/4-teaspoon nonbleach detergent (or white vinegar) with 32 ounces of water.
-Dark water-soluble stains: Chocolate, coffee, mustard, tea, wine, and bodily fluids often stain much more readily than other water-soluble materials and need a different solvent. Use 1 tablespoon of ammonia mixed in 1 cup of water first. If this doesn't work, try combining one part chlorine bleach with five parts water. These solvents may remove color from certain fabrics like wool, so check with the manufacturer for the best cleaning method.
-Oils and waxes: This would include glue, gum, nail polish, and cigarette residue. The best way to clean each of these varies - some may need to be simply scraped off or, if possible, frozen to make it brittle and then chipped away. Most glue can be dissolved and removed using a solvent like rubbing alcohol. Nail polish may also be dissolved using rubbing alcohol or with nail polish remover containing acetone.
Unfortunately, some stains may prove difficult to remove using household products. In any case, vacuuming and spot cleaning may not be enough to get your carpet or rug looking like new again. That's why many homeowners opt to hire a professional carpet cleaning service on a regular basis, around once every 12 to 18 months.
When it comes to heavy-duty carpet cleaning, you have many options to pick from. The two most common methods for cleaning carpets are steam cleaning and dry cleaning.
Steam cleaning is a common method for professional carpet cleaning, but the name is somewhat misleading. Steam-cleaning services use machines that utilize hot (but not boiling) water in combination with a vacuum. The water is heated inside the machine and sometimes mixed with detergent before being sprayed directly onto the carpet. At the same time, a vacuum sucks up the water almost immediately after hitting the fabric. The hot water extracts far more dirt and stains than would be possible by hand.
Cleaning machines using hot water extraction can be purchased or rented for home use, but they aren't always as powerful as what professional cleaning services use. Improperly drying the carpet may also cause bacteria or mold growth. Professional cleaners also employ a number of other methods to pre-treat the carpet and ensure adequate drying. For these reasons, professional carpet cleaning may be preferable to do-it-yourself methods.
Carpets or rugs can also be thoroughly cleaned using a dry-cleaning method. As the name suggests, there is much less water involved in dry cleaning, which means the carpet can be ready to use in less time. Using powerful solvents to break down dirt and stains, dry cleaning puts less physical stress on the carpet, and thus might be better in the long run. However, dry cleaning is usually more expensive than hot-water cleaning services. In addition, the chemicals used to dry clean carpets might irritate pets, people with sensitive skin, or anyone sensitive to strong odors.
Before choosing a professional carpet cleaning service, make sure you will be getting what you paid for by asking the right questions and doing your homework.
Again, there are pros and cons involved in using a hot-water-based cleaning service or dry cleaning. Take into consideration not only cost, but how long the process will take from start to finish, including drying time. Also take note of the material your carpet is made from, and consult the manufacturer if possible to learn about the best ways to clean it. If you or your family is sensitive to any chemicals, be sure to keep this in mind and ask about what chemicals are used.
You can find reviews of most professional carpet-cleaning services online, as well as information about a company's specific process, the chemicals used, and cost. It's also wise to ask friends and family members about services they've used in the past to get a recommendation. Don't always go with the service offering the lowest price, or hire a service who advertises door-to-door or over the phone, unless you have done thorough research on them.
Carpet cleaning services will be entering your home, potentially while you aren't there, so you want to feel comfortable with the business you trust with this responsibility. Ask if the company conducts background checks on employees, as well as if they are insured in your state. Without liability insurance, a mistake that results in damage to your home or furniture may be your responsibility to pay for.
If you've found a carpet-cleaning service you can trust, ask to get a quote. This may involve specifying exactly what services you would like performed, as well as the size of your home's carpeted area. Make sure you understand exactly what is included in a quoted price. Some businesses may charge extra to move furniture, clean stairs, or use special treatment methods. It's also common for businesses to sell customers on products and services they don't need. Don't hesitate to ask questions if any detail about the quote is unclear.
If you instead want to rent or buy a carpet-cleaning machine to use yourself, you have many options to pick from.
Since heavy-duty carpet cleaning isn't a frequent activity for most homeowners, many choose to simply rent one of these machines. Of course, renting is usually much cheaper than owning a machine or hiring a service, which is the biggest advantage in this situation. But not all rental units perform equally, and some might require extra drying time or the use of special solvents that will cost more. There's also the time and effort that goes into carpet cleaning - renting a unit means you must also move furniture yourself and pay close attention to ensure you're operating the unit correctly. Making a mistake could mean damaging your carpet or the unit itself. Also, improperly drying carpet could allow harmful bacteria and mold to grow. Before renting a carpet cleaner, make sure you're up for the task at hand.
Homeowners can purchase carpet cleaners ranging from compact units to full-size industrial-strength machines. Besides price, take note of the features of a unit and compare them to what you most need from a carpet cleaner. Some models specialize in removing allergens from pet hair, while others may work better on tough stains, for example. Another key consideration: Make sure you have room for it. Some carpet cleaners can be bulky and require ample storage space.
Other features you may want to look for in a cleaning unit include:
Make the right choice in carpet cleaners by considering all the options available to you and how they fit into your needs and budget.
