Carpet Cleaning Tips:
Proper cleaning is the best way to extend the life of your carpet. Dirt is abrasive, like sandpaper. Every time you step on the carpet, you grind dirt into the fibers, making tiny cuts in your carpet that cause it to wear out faster. Remember the following three rules, and enjoy like-new carpet for longer:
The single most important thing you can do is vacuum regularly and thoroughly. Tests have shown it usually takes a full seven passes with a vacuum cleaner to clean all the loose dirt out of the carpet. A lightweight, upright vacuum cleaner is usually the easiest to use. To be effective, it must have strong suction and have some sort of vibrator to loosen the dirt.
Eliminate Stains Immediately
The next most important factor in good carpet care is to clean up stains as quickly as possible. The longer a stain sits there, the harder it is to remove. Make sure you use the right cleaning materials or you may make the situation worse.
Clean Your Carpet Regularly
Finally, you need to have your carpet cleaned regularly, once every 12 to 18 months. You should also have them cleaned after any event such as remodeling or holiday parties. The sooner you remove dirt, the better.
Upholstery Care Tips:
Consumers tend to invest a lot of money in their home furnishings and spend a lot of time enjoying them.
It is important to have upholstered furniture cleaned often, dirt and oils from every day use can break down fibers in fabric and cause them to fade, look bad and wear out sooner. Fabrics also hold on to odors so cleaning them can help the entire home smell and feel fresher.
It is important to use a service professional trained in the proper use of equipment, cleaning chemicals and methods to clean upholstery and protect your valuable furnishings. Ongoing education, training and certification means service professionals stay abreast of latest developments in their field, use of best equipment, products and methods.
Furnishings are upholstered with a variety of fabrics and padding. It's important for a service professional to know what they are made of. Some fabrics cannot be cleaned with water and must be dry cleaned. Leather requires its own special treatment. Some silks can only be vacuumed.
