What is the best way to clean carpets - vapor vs. chemical

What is the best way to clean carpets - vapor vs. chemical


Often we are asked by customers "We have allergies. What is the best way to clean the carpet?"


Carpet cleaning - the best way to clean carpets with steam or chemicals? Both of these are ongoing debates. There are many supporters and critics of each method. The only way to make the right choice for your home is to investigate both methods and find out what they offer. Then you can make decisions based on information about the best way to clean your carpet.


Steam cleaning is known as deep cleansing. That's because this is the only carpet cleaning method that can remove at least 97 percent of the dirt and bacteria from the carpet. This is also the only method that can reach all the way to the lowest layer, or "stack", from your carpet to clean it thoroughly. This makes it the best method for dealing with soil or stubborn stains.


Following is one of the considerations for steam cleaning using water that is heated to very high temperatures; this can take longer for the carpet to dry after treatment. Depending on how good the cleaning extraction system is and how thick the carpet is. In this case it takes 45 minutes to several hours. In some cases, we have seen where the carpet is still damp the next day. If you need access to your room quickly, then you might want to consider using another cleaning method.


Chemical cleaning, as the name implies, involves using a chemical solution to remove dirt from your carpet. Some of these solutions are called "dry" shampoo, even though the term is used easily. They are not, in fact, completely dry but they use far less water than steam cleaning. This means that the carpet that is chemically cleaned generally dries faster because less moisture evaporates after cleaning.


As with steam cleaning, drying time is not the only consideration to apply when considering the subject of carpet cleaning. Because chemical solutions only work on the top layer of the carpet, they are almost completely ineffective in treating deep stains. Also, there is a tendency for some chemical residues to be left on your carpet, which means you and your family can be exposed to these chemicals. Make sure you fully understand what chemicals they use.


For individuals who care about the use of chemicals, steam cleaning can be a better choice.


The method you choose depends on your specific needs and your concerns when using chemicals. Arguments can be made for sides, steam or chemicals. Costs can vary too, so that's another factor that you need to consider. Either way, if you choose a reliable product or service you can be sure of getting good results. Ask your friends and neighbors which carpet cleaning services they use. That is the best way to find professional carpet cleaners.


The steam process carpet cleaners we use here in the office use steam processes and environmentally friendly cleaning solutions. When it's finished, the carpet doesn't just look good, he can tell you how much water he uses and how much he recovers. There are different ways for cleaning, for mild cleaning we will use a steam cleaner that works well for small areas but we do not recommend doing a large carpet area.
Your carpet can make a strong first impression in your home or office, so make sure you treat it properly and keep it clean. Research and find out whether steam or chemical cleaning is the right choice for you. In the end, you will be able to enjoy the clean carpet and that is the best cleaning carpet.

YOUR HOUSE SMELLS MUSTY???

We have no doubts about your cleaning skills, but undetected mold can pose a real health risk, especially for elderly people compared to young people, because their bodies cannot stand as younger people and usually they may have other medical problems that interfere with.


Robert Young Carpet Care would like to share some ways to remove mold.


Here are the tools and materials you need to clean your house from moss forever:
First of all when you want to remove mold stains, provide white vinegar first. It can be used safely and can be applied to almost any surface: bathroom and tile fixtures, clothes, furniture, painted surfaces, plastic curtains, and more. To remove heavy moss, use more doses. For mild stains, dilute with the same amount of water. You can also prevent mold from forming on the bottom of the carpet and rugs by spraying white vinegar from a spray bottle. Did you know that there are more than 90 uses of vinegar (white apple cider vinegar or) which can cleanse more than just mildew.


To clean furniture:
You need Ammonia. The trick is: Clean the moss / mildew from wood furniture with a mixture of 1 cup of ammonia, 1/2 cup of vinegar, 1/4 cup of baking soda, and 1 gallon of water. Rinse thoroughly and use an old cloth towel to absorb excessive moisture. (This same combination can clean the painted outer surface.)


To remove the moss / mildew from rattan furniture, wash with a solution of 2 tablespoons of ammonia in 1 gallon of water. Use used toothbrushes to get into hard-to-reach bends and turns. Rinse well and allow air to dry. Important safety notes before you use ammonia at any part of your home: Make sure you use it in a well-ventilated area, always use rubber gloves, and never combine ammonia and bleach.


To clean shower curtains:
Don't throw dirty or moldy shower or liner curtains. Try cleaning it in your washing machine with two bath towels (to prevent the plastic curtain from wrapping the washing machine in a soft setting). Add 1/2 cup of baking soda to your detergent during the washing cycle and 1/2 cup vinegar during the flushing cycle. Before the engine enters the spin cycle, remove the curtain and let it dry; do not place it in a dryer.


Chlorine is another option for getting rid of mold in your bathroom. Wash - along with a few bath towels - in warm water with 1/2 cup of chlorine bleach and 1/4 cup detergent. Let the washing machine run for a few minutes before loading. Insert the bathroom curtain and towel in the dryer at the lowest temperature setting for 10 minutes, then immediately dry. Clean the mold mat from your rubber by soaking it in a 1/8 cup chlorine bleach solution in 1 gallon of water for 3-4 hours. Rinse thoroughly. (Here's how you clean the bathroom.)


To clean the fabric:
To remove mold from the upholstery and other fabric, soak the sponge in a solution of 1/2 borax cup dissolved in 2 cups of hot water, and rub it into the affected area. Let it soak for a few hours until the stain disappears, then rinse well. For the same effect on clothing, soak the clothes in a solution of 2 cups of borax and 2 liters of water. Borax can also make other boring jobs easier.


To clean your bathroom:
The smell of mold and mildew everywhere is the enemy of the bathroom. For that we use: a bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide. Do not mix with water, but immediately by pouring peroxide into the disturbing area. Clean up. Mold and mildew will go away.
To remove mold and mildew between your bathroom tiles, mix the same parts of chlorine bleach and water in a spray bottle, and spray over the nat. Leave for 15 minutes, and then scrub with a stiff brush and rinse. You can also do this just to make your grout look whiter.


To clean outdoor stains:
Bleach can get mildew and other stains off unpainted cement, patio stones, or stucco. Mix a solution of 1 cup chlorine bleach in 2 gallons of water. Scrub vigorously with a stiff or wire brush and rinse. If any stains remain, scrub again using 1/2 cup washing soda (this is sodium carbonate, not baking soda) dissolved in 2 gallons of warm water. While you’re cleaning, you may want to consider giving your patio a makeover.


To clean paint surfaces:
For painted surfaces and siding, bleach is your answer, again. Make a solution of 1/4 cup chlorine bleach in 2 cups of water and apply with a brush to mildewed areas. Let the solution set for 15 minutes, then rinse. Repeat as necessary. Check out these other smart uses for bleach around the house.


To clean clothing:
Wash mildew out of washable fabrics. Wet the mildewed area and rub in some powdered detergent. Then wash the garment in the hottest water setting permitted by the clothing manufacturer using 1/2 cup chlorine bleach. If the garment can’t be washed in hot water and bleach, soak it in a solution of 1/4 cup oxygen bleach (labeled “all fabric”) in 1 gallon warm water for 30 minutes before washing.


If you’re short on chlorine, make a paste of lemon juice and salt and rub it on the affected area. Then, dry the clothes in sunlight. Repeat the process until the stain is gone. This works well for rust stains on clothes too. (Here’s why you always need lemons in your house.)


To clean hard to reach spots:
There are always hard-to-reach spots in the bathroom, usually around the fixtures, where mildew may breed in the grout between tiles. Forget about becoming a contortionist to return the sparkle to those areas. Soak a few cotton balls in bleach and place them in those difficult spots. Leave them to work their magic for a few hours. When you remove them, you’ll find your job has been done. Finish by rinsing with a warm-water wash.

The Easy Maintenance For Natural Wool Carpet and Rugs

Having the nicest natural wool carpet and rugs are one of the investments. However, there is no one carpet and rugs that last forever or 100% without stains. But with regular care you can add to your carpet and rug's validity period.


Both carpet and rugs that is properly treated increases the interior appearance and atmosphere. To protect investment on both and to make their life longer, it is important to clean them regularly and in the futures, rather than wait until they are very dirty and dull.


Maintaining the beauty of the wool carpet and rugs are very easy - in fact, it is much easier than most people think. Wool fibers are unique and have a complex structure that releases soil up to 25% easier than synthetic fiber carpets and rugs. Because basically, the natural resistance of wool fibers gives you time to do something because of a liquid spill. Wool and rugs can hold liquid bit longer, before seeping deeper.


There are three basic steps to protect your infestation:
1) Vacuum regularly
2) Clean spills immediately
3) Clean with hot water extraction (for residential use, every one or two years)


The cleaning method varies depending on fiber, the most important thing you can do for your carpet as well as rugs is to vacuum them frequently and thoroughly, especially in the high traffic areas. Vacuum not only lasts long their life, but also improves the appearance.


After your carpet or rugs is placed, lightly vacuum often in the first week to remove surface lint, dust and feathers. After that continue to vacuum thoroughly at least weekly and more often at high traffic area. This will remove soil and sand before working under the surface of the pile where it is much harder to remove and can make them become ugly, fade in appearance. For areas affected by light, it is only three times vacuum. While for very dirty areas five to seven times the vacuum is needed. Suction dust first towards the direction of the natural pile of lifting piles helps to remove dirt and sand, but it cannot reduce webbing. When finishing, vacuum in the direction of the lying stack to achieve a uniform finish.


To clean the carpet and rugs effectively, use only the proper quality of the vacuum cleaner. Vacuums equipped with a micro filter system ensure fine particles (such as dust mites’ allergens) removed and remain in the bag collection (especially important if you are sensitive in dust). A vacuum with a rotating brush that shakes the stack and loosens the best ground for a low piece of carpet pile. To prevent excessive fuzzing, turn off the brush, or replace the head when sucking in a loop of piles, pieces / circles of piles or barber rugs.


Make sure the vacuum is kept in good mechanical condition and the brush is cleaned and replaced when worn.


Check and adjust the height of the beater regularly to ensure the carpet or rugs does not experience severe damage. Change or empty the dust collection bags often and replace filters as suggested by the manufacturer.

HOW DO I REMOVE COFFEE OR STAINS FROM MY LIGHT COLORED WALL TO WALL CARPET?

This is a question we get asked quite often as it is a very common problem.

First an explanation. Coffee or tea are very acidic by nature. This means that they tend to leave a light brown or yellow spot if left to dry.

What you will need are two things. A small bottle of white vinegear and a clean white towl or rag. Open the vingear and soak one end of your towl with the white vinegear.only use white vinegear.

Wipe the vinegear over the entire spot and overlapp a little over the edges . You can wipe in a up and down moation or a circular one whatever works best for you. Make sure to cover the entire spot and take a finger and touch part of the spot to make sure it is moist. It should be moist but not too wet.then wait about 5 minutes for the vinegear to neutralize the spot.make sure you have a fan or some airflow(open a window) to vent the vinegear odor. You will see the spot gradually get lighter and lighter. Magic hugh. The final step fold your towl in quarters and place a dry portion of it directly over the spot. Take your entire body weight and step on the towl to remove as much excess moisture as possible. Repeat untill the spot is nearly dry. This should remove the spot completely. If not wait till the spot is dry and repeat the process. Usually twice is sufficient if it does not come out the first time. Great job well done-coffee or tea spots are easily removed.
