Carpet cleaning tips,
machines, rugs, tips, best way to clean your carpets.
The most important thing to do is vacuum as often
as possible, at least twice a week. This will prevent dry soil from really
wearing down your carpet prematurely. Use clean walk off mats at all entry’s.
Keep your area rugs and hard surfaces clean as they can be a source of dirt for
your clean carpet. Try to not wear shoes, especially outdoor footwear on the
carpet as this brings in all the contaminants from outside like asphalt sealant,
oils, dirt and bacteria, etc.. Wear white socks or go bare feet instead. If you
must clean a spot use as little spotter as possible applied to a white terry
cloth towel (not directly to the carpet) then slowly work from outside in on
your stain. Once gone, dampen clean area on towel with warm water and try to
wipe (rinse) the spotter out of the spotted area to rid the carpet of residue so
not to attract dirt a short time later. Stay off spotted area till dry.
Never try to clean your carpets with plug in the wall store bought or rented
portable equipment. These machines are very weak and leave so much cleaning
residue that your carpets will be dirtier in a few weeks then what you started
with. Also the cannot dry carpets properly so that also is very damaging for
your carpets. The worst carpets we see are do it yourself and dry cleaned
carpets as both leave a lot of residue which attract dirt extremely fast. Call
us for our carpet cleaning services every 6-12 months and apply our Green Sealed
Approved protector to your high used areas and your wonderful investment will
last a very long time.
A common question we get from our clients after their tile and stone floors have
been restored by our service. We recommend to thoroughly vacuum hard surfaces
often and before mopping for sure. Try not to use cleaners that would leave a
residue on floors because they accelerate the re-soiling process dramatically.
Instead, we recommend just hot mopping or use a steam mop of any sort instead.
These leave no residue and clean the surface well. As a added bonus they also
wont break down the seal we may have applied as do harsh cleaning chemicals.
Please never use bleach or harsh chemicals as they will strip the sealers and
badly wear down and pit your grout. Call us for our tile and grout cleaning
services and to re-seal your Tile/Stone and grout every 2 years or so for a long
lasting, beautiful hard surface for many years to come. Thanks for stopping by.
I will be posting helpful tips from time to time so be sure to check back.
