QC Newsletter June 2017 - Helpful Tips for Spills

Here’s some helpful tips for spills!

Dye and Food Stains - Beverages, medicines, cosmetics, foods and other liquids containing dyes should be absorbed first. Then try the liquid dishwashing solution describe in the wine remedy. Blot, repeat and rinse with clear water on a clean, white towel or white paper towel. Dry

Blood - Rinse blood quickly with cool water. Follow with an approved cleaning solution or a mix of ¼ teaspoon clear (non bleach, nonlanolin) dishwashing liquid with one cup cool water. Blot and dry quickly.

Wine - Blot with white towel. Mix ¼ teaspoon clear (non bleach nonlanolin) dishwashing liquid with 1 cup cool water. Blot and dry quickly.

Urine or Vomit - If left unattended it can damage carpet in several ways.  Always clean these up immediately with paper towels. For pet urine, try a solution of one part white vinegar and one part water. Blot with towel, repeat.

QC Newsletter May 2017 - Three Reason to Get Your Carpets Cleaned

Three Reasons to Get Your Carpets Cleaned

1.  Your home will look beautiful!  You can keep an environment your family and friends will enjoy being in.  Your carpet strongly reflects your entire home.  Half of the first impression is based on the appearance of your carpet and floors.  Stain-free carpet leaves a great first impression.

2.  You’ll save money by your carpet lasting longer!  Maintenance is always cheaper that replacement.  Carpet and rug manufacturers recommend professional cleaning at least every 12 months.  In fact, many carpet warranties require IICRC certified professional cleaning at least every 12 -18 months or your warranty is void. Proper cleaning helps carpet last much longer.

3.  You’ll have a healthier home!  The EPA (Environment Protection Agency) recommends homes with children or pets have carpet cleaned every 6-12 months.  Proper cleaning actually  improves the health of your home by removing pollens, mold spores, dander, pollutants and soils.

QC Newsletter May 2017 - The Real Reason Why Your Tile, Grout and Floors Get So Dirty!

The Real Reason Why Your Tile, Grout and Floors  Get So Dirty!

Mopping is the primary problem. Yes, mopping and cleaning should be done regularly but the cleaning has to be done properly.  The biggest mistake is using too much floor cleaner with no rinse.  Believe it or not, too much floor detergent causes a build up that actually makes your floors look dirtier.

Rinse your floor!  Every second or third cleaning, you  should clean your floors with pure water.  Avoid vinegar because vinegar can break down any sealants that may be applied grout or floor.

What about your dirty grout?

Those little lines between your tile can be difficult, if not near impossible to mop thoroughly.  The grout lines dip down below the tile, which causes your mop to never come in contact with the grout.

Using a brush to clean in the grout lines may be required for severe soil build up.  However, brushing each grout line can be VERY time consuming.  One alternative is using a floor machine that’s designed to brush the tile and extract the dirty water.  This can be more beneficial then mopping.

How to Keep Your Tile and Grout Sparkling Clean

The best preventative measure to help your grout clean up easily is to have a professional grout sealer applied.  This is something that “should” be done immediately after installation, however most tile installers don’t do it for you.  The lack of grout sealer and improper grout sealer is a big reason why grout gets so dirty.
