QC Blast January 2019 - Is Your Upholster Really Clean?

Is Your Upholstery Really Clean? Take the Test!

If you want to find how much soil is actually on your upholstery that “looks” clean, simply take a white terry cloth towel and put it over the end of your vacuum attachment hose.

 Turn the vacuum on (be sure that you don’t let the vacuum suck up the towel). Gently massage the fabric with the cloth. If you have a round dark spot that’s soil embedded in the fabric.  Give us a call because it time to clean your upholstery! 

QC Blast January 2019 - New Addition?

New Addition?

Did you get a new addition for Christmas?   No I’m not talking about a new baby....  Well, human baby that is! I’m talking about a new PUPPY!

As wonderful as having a new puppy is, it   can come with it’s own set of challenges. So here are some tips to help you out when puppy puddles are putting you in a particular predicament!

First of all, if you have a puppy that is prone to urinate on the carpet, take a quick walk through your home each day when you get home. The quicker you get to a pet stain the better.

To clean a urine spot: Try Biokleen Bac-out (green product located at Fred Meyer, Target, Thriftway), sprtiz on, let sit for 30 minutes and blot off with a white damp cloth.

QC Newsletter November 2018 - Benefits of Carpet and Rugs

Benefits of Carpet and Rugs

Improves Indoor Air Quality

New carpet is the lowest VOC-emitting  flooring choice available. It actually acts as a passive air filter, trapping dust, pollen and other particles.  Removing them from the breathing zone. Studies have shown that people with asthma and allergy problems have seen symptoms improve with carpet.

Provides Warmth and Comfort

Carpet provides actual thermal resistance,  or R-value. In colder climates or seasons, it retains warm air longer, an energy conservation benefit. Carpet also provides a comfortable place to sit, play or work and gives a room an overall warmer feeling.

Softens Slips and Falls

Carpet is ideal for cushioning our footsteps, reducing slips, falls and minimizing injuries when falls do occur. Carpet provides safety protection for the whole family, but especially for toddlers and older individuals.

Reduces Noise

Big screen TVs, speaker phones, computers and modern sound systems make our homes noisy places. Carpet helps absorb these sounds. Adding a cushion pad beneath your carpet reduces noise even further. Carpet also works as a sound barrier between floors by helping to block sound transmission to rooms below. Also, carpet on stairs helps mask the sound of constant foot traffic.

QC Newsletter November 2018 - Four Steps For Proper Carpet Care

Four Steps For Proper Carpet Care

Carpet cleaning is just like exercise! If you get into a routine and keep it up, you will see great    results and feel better for it. Products that rate highly on CRI’s Seal of Approval (SOA) program  are your assurance that you will clean correctly the first time. 

Here are four simple steps to keep your carpet clean and looking great:​
Vacuum high traffic areas daily and everywhere according to a vacuuming schedule, using a Seal of Approval-certified vacuum.  Clean spots and spills quickly with products that do not damage the carpet or cause it to resoil quicker.  Professionally deep clean your carpets every 12 to 18 months to remove embedded dirt and grime.  Stop dirt at the door by using mats outside and inside.  Also, taking your shoes off when you enter the house and changing your air filters will reduce airborne dust particles.

The Seal of Approval Program
CRI wants vacuums, extractors, cleaning systems and cleaning products to be as effective as  possible. The Seal of Approval program is the only one in the industry that scientifically measures cleaning efficacy. The results help consumers make informed decisions, and manufacturers improve their products. So carpets are cleaner, healthier and last longer.

​Basic Rug Care
Rugs deserve the same care as wall-to-wall carpet and, in some cases, require special attention.

Washing rugs — If your rug is small and the label says “machine washable,” shake the rug outside first and then put it in the washing machine at the recommended temperature. Use warm water  (90 to 105 degrees) and a mild detergent. Tumble your rug dry at the lowest heat setting.

Beating larger rugs — If your larger rug is easy to pick up, shake it outside first; then put it over a clothesline and beat it. Next, take the rug inside and vacuum it. Many carpet cleaning professionals have rug cleaning expertise as well, but, if the label says dry clean only, do not attempt to clean it! Take it to a professional!

Vacuuming area rugs — Area rugs with fringe require special technique. Use gentle suction and start from the center of the carpet, vacuuming toward the fringe and being careful not to catch the strands in the beater bar. Lift the carpet edge to vacuum beneath the fringe.

Caring for Oriental, Turkish or Persian rugs — Clean imported rugs according to your carpet manufacturer’s specifications or bring in a professional cleaning service. Be gentle with fringe. For heirloom-type rugs, you need professionals.
