Fabric Protection that Really Works

DID YOU KNOW that one of the best ‘feel good’ experiences you can enjoy is having freshly cleaned carpet or furniture?

This is not good!

The Myth of the Vacuum

You would be hard-pressed not to find this noisy, electrical, and often-underused mechanical device in any home, apartment or business.

What is it? The vacuum cleaner. You know, that silent sentinel in your closet that comes to life when you plug it in and push the power button, and it buzzes all over the carpet as you chase it around the house.

How To Remove Nail Polish From Carpet

The job of nail polish is to go onto the appropriate surface (fingernails, toenails) and stick.

The problem is when nail polish gets onto unintended surfaces, especially on carpets, upholstery, or clothing. It can be nearly impossible to remove. Aggressive efforts on your part, rubbing or scrubbing, and using harsh chemicals can damage the surface while the nail polish still lingers.

Area Rug General Care & Maintenance Guide

Area Rug General Care Guide

Most of today’s vacuums are designed for high-powered suction on hard surfaces and wall-to-wall carpets. Because of this, they are often too aggressive for use on rugs in a normal setting. Upright or canister vacuums that don’t include a beater bar are the best choice, but a standard vacuum on a low-power setting will work.

5 Easy Things You Should Do Before Your Carpet Cleaner Arrives

You’re getting your carpets cleaned! Congratulations on making the smart decision to hire a professional carpet cleaner to improve the look, smell, feel, and longevity of your carpets.

Once your carpet cleaner arrives at your home, they’ll be doing all of the work. But, there are 5 easy things you can do before they get there to ensure the most efficient and effective cleaning for your carpets.

1. Clear Your Carpeted Areas

The first thing that you should do is clear the carpeted area as much as possible. Things like lamps, plants, tables, and chairs all cover the areas of the carpet that need cleaning. The more of your carpet that is clear, the more your technician will be able to clean.

Your carpet cleaner will let you know in advance what types of furniture they move. They’ll also let you know whether or not they charge an extra fee for moving heavy items such as beds, couches, or televisions.

In addition to clearing as much as you can (or waiting for your carpet cleaner to do it if it’s included in their service), you should also remove any extremely fragile items from the carpeted area. Your carpet cleaner will take great care throughout your home. But, if you have a place to stow fragile pieces, it’s a smart precaution to take.

2. Inspect Your Carpets

Once you’ve cleared the carpeted areas, you should do your own inspection of your carpet. Your carpet cleaner will inspect your carpet when they arrive at your home. But, it’s extremely useful for you to do your own inspection first.

Take a walk around, and look closely. Pay special attention to the areas that were hidden by furniture. Note the locations of the spots and stains. Even better, if you can remember what caused the stain, note that too. Also, take note of the high-traffic areas on your carpet and the traffic pattern in your home.

Now that you’ve inspected your carpet yourself, you are prepared to give your carpet cleaner a tour. You’ll be able to show them the spots and stains so they’re sure to treat them. You’ll also be able to explain which areas of your home get the most traffic.

Your pre-inspection increases the efficiency of your carpet cleaning because you can quickly familiarize your carpet cleaner with the unique challenges of your carpet.

3. Plan for Your Pets

Your pets are part of your family. Let your carpet cleaner know in advance that you have furry children. That way your cleaner can come prepared with the proper solutions for treating pet-related soils. They might even bring a treat for Fido or Kitty too.

Once your carpet cleaner meets and greets your friendly pets, you’ll need to keep your pets out of the carpeted areas until after the carpets are fully dry. Set your pets up in a non-carpeted area of your house. Make sure they have access to food, water, and the outdoors. Borrow gates from friends and neighbors if necessary. Or, consider asking a friend or family member to take your pets on a brief play date.

4. Make Room in Your Driveway

It’s very helpful if your carpet cleaner can park their van in your driveway. Their hot water extraction machine is mounted in their truck. By parking in your driveway, their truck and all of their equipment are as close as possible to your house. Parking in your driveway also allows your cleaner to keep their hoses on your property instead of on the sidewalk or in your neighbor’s yard. And, their equipment is surely safe from theft in your driveway as well.

5. Prepare Your Family

When your carpet cleaner is done with their service, your carpets will still be a little bit moist. While your cleaner is in your home, they will have worked hard to extract most of the water from your carpets. They’ll also have placed fans strategically throughout your home to speed up the drying of your carpet. But, your carpets will still need a little bit of time to completely air dry. Your technician will let you know how much additional time you will have to wait. They’ll also let you know what you can do on your own to increase airflow around your carpets and encourage fast drying.

You should make a plan in advance for how you and your family (and your pets) will stay off of your carpets until they are fully dry. Make sure the laptop is in the kitchen instead of the living room. Plan a family date night out to dinner and to the movies. And if you can’t avoid walking on your newly cleaned carpets, ask your cleaner for some shoe coverings (booties).
