Top Reasons to Have a Professional Clean Your Floors

By Carpet Cleaning
  1. They Know What They are Doing

Houses often have many different types of flooring. Carpet, hardwood, tile, and laminate are just a few examples. A professional will know the best and safest way to clean each type of floor. They will know which solution and technique will work for your individual flooring as well as what will work best for you and your family.

 

  1. Deep Clean

We sweep. We mop. We vacuum. We scrub. But are we really deep cleaning our floors like we should? Think about your day to day life. Everyday we walk on our floors and we bring a little bit of the outside in. What happens? Dirt, grime, and bacteria end up living on our floors. Hiring a professional to come in and do a good deep clean of your floors will benefit, not only the look of the floor but our health as well. The air we breathe will be fresh and clean.

 

  1. Extend The Life

Replacing any type of flooring can be expensive. If you schedule regular professional cleaning, not only will you extend the life of your floors, but  they will continue to look clean and new for the years to come. In the end, this will not only save you money but will keep your whole house looking fresh, not to mention smelling fresh as well.

 

  1. Have More “Me” Time.

Yes, that’s right, you will have more time for you! Often we forget to slow down and just take a break. Why? Because we all lead busy, stressful lives. And when we do finally sit down to drink that cup of coffee or enjoy that glass of wine, we look around the house and think, “I should be cleaning instead.” Having a regular scheduled floor cleaning professional come in and do the dirty work for you, will give you more free time. More free time, equals more “me” time!

 

Proper Care of an Antique Rug

By Carpet Cleaning

Proper Care of an Antique RugAn antique rug needs periodic care to assure lasting beauty and value. By taking a few simple precautions, your older carpet, whether it’s a decades-old vintage rug or a century-old antique carpet, can be preserved in good floor condition to be handed down to the next generation.

 

Here are some helpful tips and techniques to help you keep your antique rug in top shape:

 

Spills

The finest older antique wool rugs were often made from lanolin-rich wool which has amazing stain repellent properties. If a spill is dealt with immediately, it can often be easily blotted up before staining occurs. Use a moist, clean cloth to blot from the edges toward the center of the spill. If soap is needed, use hair shampoo, as the protein of wool is similar to human hair. Do NOT scrub, as this will embed the stain more deeply into the wool. Then elevate the damp area on a short stool or box for quick air drying. Avoid allowing your carpet to sit damp for an extended period of time, as this could possibly rot the cotton foundation.

3 Things To Make Your Carpet Last a Lifetime

By Carpet Cleaning

3 Things To Make Your Carpet Last a LifetimeEveryone loves their carpeting when it’s new, but as it gets older and shabbier, we tend to ignore and even scorn it. So what can you do to stay in love with your carpeting? Here are three things that will help make your carpet last longer and keep the love alive:

 

  1. Stay ahead of the dirt

Did you know that it takes up to 17 steps before the soles of your shoes are clean? Dirt tracked onto a carpet eventually sifts down to the carpet backing and grinds away at the fibers, literally wearing it out. Surface soil also dulls the carpet color by covering it up. Fine grit scratches the carpet fiber, just the way a diamond scratches glass. So after you clean the carpet, the carpet still looks dull and dirty because the fiber surface is distorted.

 

Many cultures remove their shoes when entering a home. This habit really helps keep a carpet looking new. If you want to wear your shoes inside, entry mats also cut down on dirt coming into your home.

 

Even the most diligent homeowner can’t avoid dirt completely, so it’s important to vacuum, vacuum, and vacuum. Start by making sure your vacuum works properly:
