Cleaning Tips

Keeping carpets looking and feeling new is not only a house beauty essential and a health need, but also an economy drive. Maintaining a carpet is less expensive than replacing a carpet that is stained and beyond repair. There are many methods of carpet cleaning, but we have some useful carpet cleaning tips especially for you.

Carpet Cleaning

If you can't have a red carpet welcome, a clean carpet welcome is one of the nicest welcomes anyone can have. Whether you are a guest or just coming back to your own home after a tiring day, carpets have to be cleaned.

  • Vacuum your carpet at least twice a week.
  • Place a mat or rug near doorways or entrances. These absorb dirt and moisture.
  • Don't mix cleaning solutions. Mixing them can create chemicals, such as ammonia, and can damage your rug or carpet.

Pet Stain Removal

  • Use a clean, white, and absorbent cloth to remove the excrement. Blot it. Don't rub it.
  • Put a small amount of liquid detergent on the cloth. Rub the area firmly to get rid of the stain.
  • Mix ½ cup of white vinegar with 1 quart of warm water.
  • Slowly pour the mixture onto the stain.
  • Allow the area to dry.

The important fact to keep in mind is that you must declare a war on the stain as soon as it occurs to properly defend your carpet. If you use a commercial carpet cleaning solution follow instructions carefully. If you have kids and pets clean the carpet every three months, if you don't, cleaning once a year will do. Use gloves and goggles while cleaning with chemical cleaners.

Rug Cleaning

  • Vacuum both sides of your rug.
  • Use a mild liquid soap or rug shampoo. Use either a non-shedding sponge or soft and long brush to brush the pile in linear motion. Wet the nap with the solution.
  • Scrub gently.
  • Thoroughly rinse the rug with running water.
  • Squeeze excess water from both sides.
  • Dry the rug thoroughly by laying it flat. After the nap has dried, turn the rug over and let it dry.
  • Gently brush or lightly vacuum if the pile feels stiff.

Your rug can be the biggest sufferer after a party or a special meal. Red wine and food stains can be removed using club soda or peroxide dissolved in water. Peroxide is a powerful chemical, so test for color fading in an inconspicuous part of the rug before application to the stain. Break cleaner does a wonderful job on food stains. Wax stains from the decorative candles should be frozen or melted with a warm iron to remove the stain.

Auto Interior Cleaning

  • Use a microfiber cloth to wipe down hard surfaces.
  • Use a crevice tool to vacuum up the dirt or food particles.
  • Use an air compressor to blow dirt out of the hard-to-reach areas.
  • Use a floor brush or vacuum cleaner to get up dirt.

Tile and Grout Cleaning

Let the professionals handle this if you aim for spotless result. But here are some tips if you want to do this job.

  • Use a damp cloth to wipe the area.
  • Pour baking soda over the grout. Let it set for a few minutes.
  • Scrub the area, using a toothbrush. It will get all the dirt off.
