Fight Noise with Noise

Like a modern girl, living in an apartment down town, I can certainly claim that traffic noise as well as midnight trash pick ups, hissing radiator, car alarms, and etc., are my worst enemies at night. However, being able to sleep through all that is not always easy, unless I am so tired that once I get into bed I am dead to the world for at least 8 hours.

Never the less experts at cleaning in Fitzroy North swear by these devises, and claim that even your pet will be calmed by them. Take your dog, for example, it is far more sensitive towards sudden street noises (the sharpened senses, and all…), and it can’t help but leap to check every sign of disturbance, right? With one of those machines the chances of being waken up...
