Benefits of carpet cleaning According to a report by the American Lung Association, dust accumulation in carpet and rugs can adversely affect members of your household who suffer from conditions that can affect their breathing, such as snoring or asthma. If you're not fully convinced of the benefits of carpet cleaning, consider the following top three ways the process leads to a healthier home: 1. Carpet cleaning eliminates trapped pollutants According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a dirty carpet can retain several sources of indoor air pollutants, including pet dander, cockroach allergens, lead, particle pollution and everyday dirt and dust. Toxic airborne gases can adhere to these particles and also get trapped within the carpet. These toxic gases can be released through everyday activities such as vacuuming and walking across the carpet, which can cause them to contaminate the air in your home. Professional carpet cleaning services kill these bacteria through special carpet shampoo formulas and can remove deeply trapped pollutants with high-powered vacuums. 2. Carpet cleaning can clear out dust mite infestations Many homes have dust mite infestations, yet most homeowners aren't aware of the infestation because the creatures are microscopic. Dust mites themselves aren't allergens, but they often leave behind feces and body fragments which are. Because of the microscopic size of these particles, they can easily be inhaled when the area is disturbed, which can exacerbate allergies. Many professional carpet cleaners use a technique known as steam cleaning when performing carpet maintenance work, which exposes your carpet to high temperatures that dust mites can't survive. 3. Carpet cleaning can help prevent mold growth Especially in areas with high humidity levels, dirty carpets are at a high risk of developing mold growth when exposed to moisture. In precipitous weather, moisture frequently gets tracked into the home and can sink deep in the carpet fibers if not dried and vacuumed immediately. Having your carpet cleaned regularly can prevent mold and mildew growth, because professional carpet cleaners have high-powered drying tools that annihilate moisture.

ARE WE CERTIFIED? YES WE ARE!! Why use a certified technician? At the IICRC, they believe that the best way to maintain a cleaner and healthier home is to augment your regular cleaning and vacuuming with periodic visits from an experienced certified professional. For those tasks that require a specialist — such as carpet and upholstery cleaning, stain removal, and maintenance of wood and tile floors — only a certified technician will deliver the results you can trust.
There are many services out there that claim they are experts at sanitizing flooring, but the companies that have a carpet cleaning certification are the ones that can back up that claim. It would be a bad idea to hire a driver without a driver’s license. It would be a bad idea to hire a team of cle...

Carpet Cleaning Tips for Stubborn Stains Need help with carpet cleaning and stain removal? Here's how to get out everything from bleach to chocolate, blood and red wine. Not all stains are created equal, so when it comes to carpet cleaning, how do you deal with the worst of the worst? If you've got a seriously stubborn stain or are afraid of doing more harm than good to your carpet, you always have the option of hiring a professional carpet cleaner. But here are some DIY tips on how to clean carpet that can help you tackle everything from bleach and red wine to blood and even nail police and pet urine smell using store-bought cleaning supplies or homemade carpet cleaner. Red wine, grape juice and coffee These two stains are generally considered the worst of the worst by carpet care experts, as they're both acidic and have deep colors, making them almost impossible to remove if they're not immediately caught. If you see the stain happen or find it still wet, pour club soda or water over the affected area and blot it up with a cloth. Do not rub or grind in the stain; blot the stain until it no longer remains. If the stain is still there after the carpet dries, use borax or baking soda paste in combination with cold water. Candle wax Candle wax can easily work its way into carpet fibers and create a slippery, oily mess. If the wax is still hot when spilled, be careful cleaning it up. Use an ice cube or ice pack to freeze whatever is left over. Once frozen, the wax will clump together and you should be able to pick most of it out. Motor oil Hopefully you don't have too many motor oil spills in your living room, but if this or another oil product ends up on your carpet, start by blotting up as much of it as you can. Next, use shaving cream on the stain, and be sure to work the cream into the stain thoroughly using a brush. While for most stains you want to avoid rubbing to prevent further contamination, the oil in these products lets them spread quickly throughout a carpet's fibers, and you want to make sure as much shaving cream as possible is worked into the stain. Make sure to use a shaving cream without added moistuizers because they can add oil to the carpet. For more serious, oil-based stains, you may want to consult a professional carpet cleaner. Your type of carpet — Berber carpet, thick or thin frieze, natural or synthetic — will determine how aggressive you can be in stain removal and whether you need to call in outside help. Other oils or grease If you spill something oily or greasy, blot away the excess quickly with a clean paper towel. Sprinkle salt or baking soda on stain and leave it overnight. Later, vacuum the salt or baking soda off of the stain area. Blood Blood is thick and organic, which means it can easily stain your carpet. Remove as much as you can with a spoon or cloth and use an enzyme-based laundry detergent to break the blood down. If the stain is already dry when you find it, apply hydrogen peroxide directly, let it soak in and blot with water. Urine Even the mot well-behaved dog or cat may want to leave their mark. If you have a pet urine stain, absorb as much as you can with an unprinted paper or cloth towel. Follow up with a solution that’s half white vinegar and half water. Finish off the process with a solution that’s one-half teaspoon of clear, non-bleach detergent mixed with 32 ounces of water. Rinse the area and blot it dry one final time. Ink Whether it's pen or marker, is ink usually intended to be permanent, so getting an ink stain can be one of the most challenging carpet cleaning tasks you could face. The key is to immediately blot the area with a clean, white cloth soaked in rubbing alcohol. Don't pour the rubbing alcohol directly into the ink stain, since that can cause it to spread. Be sure to blot, don't rub, which can also cause the stain to spread. If you're concerned about whether your carpet is color fast, test a small area first with the rubbing alcohol. Nail polish A little nail polish remover on a white rag or cloth can do the trick when it comes to removing nail polish, but test your carpet's color fastness in a less noticeable spot before tackling a big stain. Soda Soda stains require immediate action due to their high acidic content. The acid loosens the fibers of the carpet and allows the stain to quickly settle in for a long stay. Clean these spots immediately by absorbing all of the liquid with a heavy towel. Follow by scrubbing the area thoroughly with a mixture of dish soap and water. Gum There are few messes worse than a piece of chewing gum getting stuck in the carpet. Make it a little less of a sticky situation by using a piece of ice to freeze the chewing gum before trying to remove it. "Shatter" the frozen gum gently with a hammer or other blunt object. Then ise a vacuum to remove the pieces before the gum has time to reset. Dirt or mud Dirt, grime and mud are some of the most common stains found in carpets, and fortunately, they are usually the easiest to remove. Allow the mud or dirt to dry thoroughly before you try to clean the spot. Scrubbing the stain while it’s still wet can drive it deeper into the carpet. Once the stain is dry, you can use a vacuum to remove the dirt. Then use a damp terry cloth to scrub the area. Allow the area to dry once more and then vacuum again. Fruit punch, Kool-aid or ketchup It's easy to spill food and drinks, and it's even worse when the stain is a dark color. To get rid of stains left by fruit juice, fruit punch, Kool-aid or ketchup, blot much of the substance as you can as fast as you can. Then mix warm water with dish soap, dampen a clean cloth and press the cloth against the stain for 15 seconds. Let it sit. Mix one cup of white vinegar with two cups of water, dampen the cloth and press it against the stain for 15 seconds. Let it sit for 15 minutes, then blot with a clean dry towel. Lipstick Had a mishap with your favorite lipstick? To remove lipstick stains, gently place petroleum jelly on the smudge, then mix a teaspoon of dish soap with one cup of warm water. Blot the smudge gently with the cleaning solution, then scrape the petroleum jelly off with a knife. Although you'll never be able to keep your carpet entirely stain free, even the stains listed above aren't impossible to defeat. By using the right tools and cleaning supplies, as well as dealing with a stain as soon as it happens, you can limit the damage done to your carpet and prevent permanent discoloration. If these remedies don’t seem to be working, don’t waste time trying to continuously remove the stain. Know when it's time to give up on the household options and contact a highly rated professional carpet cleaner or cleaning services.

How to Get Wax Out of Carpet If you spilled wax on your carpet, don't panic. There's a do-it-yourself carpet cleaning method that will allow you to get wax out of carpet and area rugs. Here are some quick, easy steps to remove candle wax from carpet fibers with as little hassle and damage as possible: 1. Let the wax cool Allow spilled wax to cool so that it hardens and becomes easier to remove. Attempting to remove hot liquid wax from carpet fibers can actually spread it further around or deeper into the carpet fibers. Although it may seem like a good idea to try to get wax out of the carpet while it is still in liquid form, it is much easier to allow it to cool and harden into a solid. 2. Remove large chunks of wax You can use a piece of silverware like a fork, spoon or knife to remove larger pieces of the wax from your carpet. Be careful not to use sharp knives, as they can damage the carpet fibers. Also, be sure not dig too deeply into the carpet fibers while attempting to remove the wax, as you may damage the carpet's backing. 3. Vacuum up loose pieces of wax Use a vacuum cleaner to vacuum up any remaining loose pieces of wax that are around the area. 4. Get an iron and a brown paper bag Get a brown paper bag and place it over any remaining wax trapped in the carpet. Make sure that the brown paper bag is covering the entire wax spill. Next, plug in a clothes iron and turn the heat to a low setting. Once the iron warms up, run it across the paper bag, being careful not to apply too much pressure, as the combination of heat and pressure can damage the carpet. (layers of paper towels and a hair dryer work in a pinch) 5. Repeat as necessary Lift the bag up from the carpet and you should see a dark stain from where the wax has attached to it. Look over the carpet to see if there is still wax on the fibers. If there's still wax on the carpet, you may need to repeat this process a few more times. Get a new paper bag and repeat the procedure in order to remove the excess wax from your carpet. Once all of the wax has been removed from the carpet, use a vacuum to clean the surface one last time. 6. Call a carpet cleaner If the stain or damage from spilled candle wax is too extensive for this DIY solution, you're likely better off calling a professional carpet cleaner. From applying industry methods to removing the wax to possibly replacing the damaged carpet area itself, a well qualified carpet cleaning company will likely have the skills, training and experience to renew your carpet.

4 Things You Should Never Use to Clean Carpet By Erika Herman Oops! It’s easy to reach for a home remedy when something stains your carpet … but that’s not always the best choice. There are books that tell you to “Eat This, Not That!” The same idea applies to your home’s carpet: There are things you should and shouldn’t use to clean your carpet. Protect your expensive investment by knowing the four things that should never go on your carpet. 1. Bleach While it’s a great whitener for your dirty socks, bleach generally is a no-no on carpet. The problem with bleach is that it strips things of their color, and this is true for carpet as well. So if you have a large stain on your dark carpet, bleach is not the way to go. 2. White wine Although white wine can be used to neutralize a red wine stain, there are better methods for removing red wine from your carpet. (Besides, do you really want to waste a good glass of white wine on cleaning carpets?) 3. Abrasive cleansers You may think that the more you scrub, the cleaner things will be. But that’s not true for carpet. Carpet fibers can fray and tear if you vigorously use an abrasive cleanser or cleaning utensil for stain removal. 4. Laundry detergent Caring for your clothes and caring for your carpet are two different things. Although laundry detergent can get dirt out of many materials, it could create a soapy mess on your carpet that will be hard to remove.
