You might not want to hear that you should vacuum more regularly, but unfortunately there is no way around it. Many carpet problems—including odors and discoloration—happen because dust, dirt, and other particles are ground in deep within your carpet’s fibers. The best way to prevent that from happening is to remove the dust and dirt while it is still on the surface of your carpet, and before it becomes deeply embedded.
It causes abrasion wear and destroys the high tech properties that were built into the carpet fibers. Remember to change the bag when ¾ full, remember to spend more time on the high traffic areas. Carpets don’t wear out they ugly out. You can also do yourself a favor by investing in a newer, high quality vacuum instead of trying to do the job with a run-down older model. The better care you take of your carpet on a day to day basis, the less often that we will have to visit!
If you own a carpet, you are guaranteed to have to deal with spot cleaning at some point. Even if you have taken all possible preventive measures, accidental spots and stains will happen. The most important thing to remember when you are dealing with spots and stains is that you should not panic. There are many methods that are effective in removing even a terrible looking spot.
What is also important is that you start to clean the spot as quickly as is possible after the accident has occurred. Generally speaking, you never want to rub or scrub a spot on your carpet. That will just push the spot deeper into the carpet, and make it bigger.
Instead, you need to blot the spot, placing an absorbent paper towel over the spot to suck up the material as much as possible. Remember, no spot remover will work on all spots and for pet stains you need a specific enzyme based pet stain remover.
If that doesn’t work to completely remove the spot, and you are stuck for a solution, please call CCS at 905-819-0462—we can help you start treating the spot right away.
If you use a store-bought cleaner to try to treat a stain on your carpet, please make sure that you test a small, hidden area of your carpet with the cleaner and wait for it to dry before you apply the cleaner to your entire carpet. If the cleaner is made by a reputable manufacturer, then its label should tell you to do the same thing. Far too often, though, we have seen homeowners try to treat one small stain, and end up damaging the color of their carpet. If you ever have any doubt about how to treat a stain on your carpet, just give us a call. Please call Carpet Cleaning Solution for the best carpet cleaning services all throughout the GTA.
Studies have shown that regular steam cleaning along with proper vacuuming maintenance will improve indoor air quality. Carpet can be wrongly blamed for contributing to asthma and allergies. Studies have shown that carpet is better at trapping allergens than hard surface, such as tile or hardwood, because carpet fibers catch particles and allergens that fall to floor. When allergens are trapped in the carpet, they cannot circulate in the air for you to breathe. Proper cleaning with a good quality vacuum effectively sucks up the dirt and dust from the carpet, locks it in the machine and keeps it out of the air.
You may want to consider a vacuum with a Hepa filter which removes 99.99% of dust from its exhaust.
A misperception is that people with asthma and allergies should avoid carpet in the home. But much of today's carpet is made from harmless materials found in clothing and other everyday fabrics, such as polyester, nylon and olefin fibers, which don't trouble most people.
