5 Things you were told about Carpet Cleaning that are WRONG

5 Things you were told about Carpet Cleaning that are WRONG

Being in the carpet cleaning business for several years I’ve heard quite a number of stories and misconceptions about carpet cleaning.

Even in 2019, this misconceptions and myths still take root in peoples beliefs. That’s so because when we were all kids an authority figure told us these myths which they themselves believed to be true.

They also were told these things when they were kids and that’s how these misconceptions have been passed from mouth to mouth, from generations to generation.

I’m however going to shed some light on some of these carpet cleaning misconceptions.

1. Wait a few years before cleaning a new carpet

Honestly, I have no idea where this started or how it came to be, but the truth is it is false. Waiting a few years before thinking of cleaning your new carpet only does more harm than good. I suppose people intend to preserve the life of the carpet but while they intend to do that, they only put the health of your family at risk.

The dust that settles on the carpet, stains from liquids that spill into the fabrics and other contaminants makes it unhealthy – a perfect breeding ground for germs and allergens. This causes the air in your home to be contaminated by these pollutants which constitutes a health hazard for you and your family.

Carpet cleaning and washing don’t cause the fabrics and patterns to fade, with the right cleaning materials your carpets will survive its entire lifespan and look as good as the day you bought it.

2. Only clean your carpet if it is stained

Over time, carpets accumulate dead skin cells, dust and food fragments. Some carpets hide this better than others, but because they are hard to spot does not mean they are absent.

Waiting for your carpet to be stained is not a good threshold/standard by which you should depend on to make the decision.

Waiting will only give your carpet the chance to further accumulate these filths that not only contaminates the air but cause skin diseases and irritations should your bare skin touch the carpet.

3. Cleaning shrinks the carpet

While this may be true, it depends on the carpet cleaning company you hire for the job. Your carpet will only shrink if the water used is too hot, if it is soaked a long time and if you use the wrong cleaning materials and technique for your carpets.

This is one of the reasons it’s advisable to hire a carpet cleaner that’s an expert in the field. An excellent cleaning company, know the appropriate materials for your carpet type and every other relevant information to prevent your carpet from shrinking.

4. If you have your own machine, you don’t need a professional

Unless you are a professional in the field, you need experts. Having your own machine is great and convenient if removing small stains is what you intend to do.

However, for heavy-duty carpet cleaning, you will need professionals to do the cleaning. Their machines have the power needed to remove tough stains and of course won’t shrink your carpet.

5. Carpet cleaners are all the same, go for the cheapest ones

There are carpet cleaners and there are also carpet cleaners. That you will be able to tell when you actually go for the cheap carpet ones. The quality of service the cheapest ones offer will definitely not be the kind of service you’ll get if you went for the real pro.

Already explained in 3 above, expert carpet cleaners know what to do to prevent your carpet from shrinking sams cant be said and guaranteed for the cheapest carpet cleaners.

Carpet Cleaners: Rotovac or Rug Doctor?



Today we are going to tell you about why our carpet cleaning is better than some others you might have heard of. Let’s start with the name of our carpet cleaning system – Rotovac – remember that name because it will soon be one of your favorite cleaning machines.

How it works

TiredCleaner

It works like this: RUG DOCTOR Rug Dr. and other carpet cleaners like it, are fine carpet cleaners if you need a small area cleaned, or if your carpet, upholstery, or tile is not very dirty.  The problem with scrubbing wand cleaners is that the wand has to be manually pushed back and forth if you really want to get the area clean.  That continuous back and forth movement are exhausting.  Plus, if it is a tough job, you are going to get pretty weary before you get the carpet clean if this type of cleaner can even do the job.

With a manual cleaner, your carpet is still wet when you finish the job, and retains water for a while.  It cannot be adjusted to accommodate different pile heights.  It has one setting only. Finally, these machines just are not designed to do the kind of work we do with ROTOVAC.  If you want to call the wand scrub cleaners a Cadillac, then the Rotovac would have to be called a Lamborghini.

ROTOVAC

The Rotovac is an electric power scrubbing tool. The extreme cleaning jobs that we do would be impossible if we were not using the ROTOVAC.  It is efficient, powerful, easier to use, and gets the job done more quickly and more thoroughly.  It’s the rotary mechanism that makes the cleaning go so much more smoothly.  The rotary brushes are contacting a broader area of carpeting and are cleaning in a circular manner, which produces better cleaning results for you.

The Rotovac can adjust to differing pile heights which not only improves the depth and accuracy of cleaning but also can be adjusted to the correct setting for carpet over pads or commercially glued-down pads. The Rotovac leaves the carpet about 20 X drier than a wand scrub cleaner.  Our normal drying time is 2-6 hours depending on the weather and the barometer.

Rotovac-BnA-floor-big

The thing about it is that you can rent a wand scrubber carpet cleaner at any hardware store or big box home improvement store.  You can get the proper cleaning solution and bring everything home.  Then, you can read the directions and follow them carefully.  As we have said, you will get carpets that aren’t in very bad shape looking better.  But is all that going, getting, paying, solution-buying, reading and doing really worth it, if in the end, you are not going to get a really clean carpet?  Why not let Accents in Cleaning come one time and get the job done?  You won’t believe how much better your home will look, smell, and feel!

4 Annoying Carpet Stains and How to Clean Them Off



They are probably the most annoying 4 of the bunch. Common household items that when they get on the wrong surface (in this case, our carpets), they hold on and never want to let go. No matter how hard you scrub, these culprits prove very resilient.

Gum, lipsticks, shoe and nail polish!

To the ill-advised, they make carpet and home cleaning unnecessarily complicated. But that is about to be a thing of the past. Today we give you insights into the proper cleaning of tough gum, lipsticks, shoes, and nail polish stains. Without further ado, let’s dive right in!

Gum

Gums are really fun, in the mouth. But when they get on surfaces, well, you know it. They can be a real pain. Gums getting on surfaces sometime can’t be avoided especially if you have kids in your home. Other times it could just be adults who accidentally lose control of their mouths and let gum out. Sometimes gum can fall out of a trash can and get pressed into furniture or flooring. Next time gum shows up somewhere it doesn’t belong, try these methods:

  • Ensure the gum is dried and hardened by using a can of compressed air or ice or an ice pack (be sure to keep moisture from ice away from the gum). Take a dull scraper to scrape up and lift off the gum. This can work on carpets as well, just be extra careful to avoid damage to the carpet fibers. Vacuum the area and wash with warm soapy water.
  • Apply extra strength duct tape to the gum and quickly lift the tape, repeat until the gum is removed.
  • Using a microfiber cloth, apply a product like Goo-Gone. Use circular motions and pressure to loosen the gum.

Lipstick Stains

Lipsticks look unbelievably good on the lips – female lips I might add – but not so much on carpets and household furniture. With the way lipsticks are made to stick to the lips for long periods of time, you can see how that will be a problem when it gets on wooden surfaces.

Lipstick from a napkin, a glass tipping onto the carpet, or simply falling asleep on your sofa before removing your makeup can leave embarrassing red marks. Follow these tips to restore your carpet or furniture to its pre-kissed glory.

  • If the lipstick has not dried, apply toothpaste to the area to help remove the stain.
  • If the lipstick has dried, use a plastic knife or a scraper to remove as much as possible.
  • Soak a cloth in ammonia and gently blot at the stain. Remove ammonia from the surface with a clean cloth which has been soaked in water.
  • Spray hairspray onto the stain, let sit for roughly 5 minutes and wipe down the area with a dry, clean cloth.

Unfortunately, lipstick is a very stubborn thing to remove, but Accents in Cleaning can help you remove any and all stains.

Shoe/Nail Polish

Shoe polish can make work boots and dress shoes look amazing. Whether you have a housemate who is in the military or someone who just likes polished shoes, somewhere in your house is bound to end up with a little-spilled shoe polish.

  • Scrape away as much as possible (without damaging the carpet or upholstery) with a scraper or knife.
  • Apply dry-cleaning fluid in a blotting fashion to the stain. Followed by a mixture of ammonia and dish soap applied with a clean paper towel (keeping the clean side on the stain at all times to reduce spreading). Rinse with cool water and blot with a clean, dry towel until dry.
  • Use acetone nail polish remover. That stuff will remove just about anything!
  • Mix a non-bleach laundry detergent with cold water and apply directly to the carpet and scrum.
  • Combine water and ammonia, and scrub the carpet with a clean rag. Rinse with warm water and blot or vacuum dry.e

Though a cliche, it’s important to note that with these stains, a stitch in time saves nine. You want to attack these stains while they’re still young – catch them young, sort of. You’ll save on costs of detergents and time just by simply following these tips.

The Easiest Way to Get Your Carpet Looking New Again

Does your carpet hurt your eyes when you look at them? Do they have several spots on them that just refuse to go despite all you have done to get rid of them?

That’s why you need to have a reputable carpet cleaning company to help you with your carpets. But, there are a few things you need to consider when hiring a carpet cleaning company and the following article will explain that to you. Continue reading for helpful tips! Vacuum your carpeting before you have it cleaned. Vacuum loose soil to avoid spreading stains or making them penetrate deeper into your carpet.

Before cleaning your carpets, a professional should vacuum them. Use a quality vacuum cleaner to get rid of any loose dirt before using water or cleaning products. Using liquid cleaners on the dirty carpet will not produce the desired results, and can create a rather messy situation. Blot up as much liquid as possible before vacuuming the area. You may think carpet cleaners only clean carpets, but they offer more services than that. Upholstery cleaning might also be offered, for example.

Don’t just choose the first carpet cleaning company you consider, but check out several different cleaners first. Research each company online and find customer reviews. Check the BBB or Chamber of Commerce to avoid companies that you won’t be satisfied with. Look over any reviews that customers have left for carpet cleaning companies before hiring them. Make sure you select a company that offers the services you need at a price you can afford.

Avoid using extremely high heat when cleaning carpets. Heat can ruin carpets that are delicate. This is really important when you’re trying to get rid of a stain so there isn’t a permanent mark left behind. The first thing you should do upon purchasing a new carpet is washed it thoroughly. Some carpets contain chemicals used in showrooms to keep their quality intact.

Watch out for cleaning services that advertise by the room or that contact you by phone. These are warning signs as every room is a different size. Square footage needs to be the main factor when determining the price. If the stain on your carpet is very difficult, you should probably hire a professional. Carpet professionals know how to remove stains including blood, wax, wine or other harsh stains.

Wash all new carpets as soon as you bring them home. Some carpets possess chemicals to help preserve their quality. Cleaning the carpet as soon as it is in your home will help you avoid harming pets or members of your family. If you have an animal in your home your carpet will surely need more attention than it would otherwise. Hiring a professional carpet cleaning company is a great way to get any odors and pet hairs out of the carpet for good.

Remember that chemical carpet cleaning agents can expose members of your family to something that is potentially harmful. You should always know what cleaning products that the company is using. Ask the company, before you hire them, what procedures they follow prior to actually cleaning the carpet. Vacuuming should be done before deep cleaning the carpet.

Make sure to carefully read the instructions for an industrial carpet cleaning machine before using it. Take any recommended safety precautions, and only use on the types of fibers or surfaces indicated on the label. The company should be aware of all these things prior to them using the product. With all of the carpet cleaning methods out there, every company might offer a different one. For instance, certain companies specialize in cleaning via absorbent pads.

If you have difficult carpet stains, you might need to think about getting a pro. Professionals have tried and proven methods of removing even the toughest stains that regular household products can’t get rid of. They can do this without harming the carpet which saves you money later on. Cannot stand your carpet’s smell? A carpet cleaner can utilize a simple trick for eliminating this. When you can be certain people will not walk through for a while, sprinkle some baking soda on the carpet.

Invest serious time in vacuuming your home. Thorough vacuuming removes a great deal of dirt. Removing this excess dirt improves the look of your carpet and adds a few years to its life. Taking times to do this is worth it. Got liquid spills on your carpets? If so, then see that they are blotted fast. Dry towels work well in soaking up the majority of the spilled liquid.

Baking Soda for Carpet Cleaning?

TIP! Make sure you read the coupons you want to use. There could be fine print that covers stipulations.

Save money on carpet deodorizer by using plain baking soda. For especially stubborn odors, add lavender oil to your baking soda before sprinkling on the carpet. You can save money when you use baking soda. You can add a little essential oil to baking soda or a spice such as cloves. Don’t choose a company based on their claim about using new technology. The person operating the equipment matters more than the materials alone.

What you have learned in this article should be all you need to know when hiring a carpet cleaner. Do more research on carpet cleaning if needed and do your best to prevent spills and stains. Don’t rush the process, though. It will all be worthwhile once your carpet is spot-free. Investigate to determine that the cleaning company you are interested in has honest people working for them. Most companies take the time to do some background checks on their employees, as well as drug tests.

Hire A Carpet Cleaner the Best Way



We all love clean carpets. This means a clean home. But the stress involved in carpet cleaning is something most people aren’t looking forward to.Unfortunately no one has invented a self-cleaning carpet. Until then you should hire a pro to clean your carpet.What are factors you should consider when looking for a carpet cleaner? The following advice will show you what to look for.

How to Hire A Carpet Cleaner

Look out for these:

1. Vacuum

Always vacuum any carpet before cleaning it. Make use of a good vacuum cleaner in order to eradicate lose dirt prior to applying cleaning solvents or water. You will not get good results if you apply cleaning products on a carpet full of lose dirt. Ask your technician if he will be vacuuming prior to carpet cleaning; if not, make sure you vacuum 30 minutes before he arrives.

2. Know your Carpet Warranty

A company may offer a certain type of stain protection for your carpet, but make sure you read your carpet’s warranty first. If your carpet was pre-treated by the company that made the carpet and you place another treatment over it, it could make your warranty null and void. The chemicals may not be compatible and it can end up costing you a bundle.

3. Research your Carpet Cleaner

Just because a professional uses a well-known product doesn’t mean they are reputable. You need to do some research to make sure they are properly certified. Double check on your own, but also just ask them about their certifications to see what they say.

4. Learn from your Cleaner

Once you’ve had your carpets cleaned, ask the carpet cleaning company for pointers on taking care of your carpets afterward. Most professionals can guide you toward the best stain removers, how long carpets should dry, and a vacuuming schedule. The advice they give you can help keep your carpet looking great for a long time after the cleaning.

5. Explore Cheaper Options

Just using vinegar and warm water makes an excellent carpet cleaning solution. This is much cheaper than cleaning products if you still want good results. The professional should mix an equal amount of vinegar and warm water together. Then, they should pour the mixture over your carpet, scrubbing it with a sponge. All you need to do is take care of surface dirt by vacuuming.  

6. Check for Licensed Carpet Cleaners

Carpet cleaners should be licensed by the IICRC. This certification is globally recognized as the gold standard for carpet cleaners. It is particularly important to contract a cleaner who’s certified when your carpet is under warranty. If there is no certification, the manufacturer may void the warranty on your carpet.

7. Treating a Stain

Red wine that gets spilled on a carpet may leave behind a bad stain. Treating a stain as soon as possible can make it easier to clean. First, place white wine on the red wine to dilute it. Cold water and a cloth that’s absorbent can be used to blot this liquid off of your carpet. Sprinkle salt over the stain, and allow it to absorb the wine for 10 to 15 minutes before vacuuming.

You now have a good understanding of how to go about hiring a carpet cleaning service. It couldn’t be simpler if you just apply the tips found in this article. The right cleaning service can turn back time to restore your carpet. That makes your home look wonderful as well!

They have a fun time running around in the garden, digging up heavens know what and when they get tired, make a beeline for your living room. You know where they are about to go lie, on your precious carpet.

Pet stains are inevitable if you have pets. Then you have to deal with their hair being everywhere. To ice the cake, they pee on your carpet. Just perfect!

What to do in Between Carpet Cleaning Appointments



So you’ve decided to get let professional carpet cleaners clean your carpets for you, that’s a great choice. If you haven’t made up your mind yet, this will give you reasons to let professional cleaners service your carpet. Carpet cleaning is a real daunting task, but with their help, the load is lighter.

Vacuum carpet cleaning

After each carpet cleaning appointment, the cleaner will give you tips on how to maintain your carpets pending the next cleaning appointment. If they don’t, well you have come to the right place. Carpets don’t always stay clean especially when they’re in use, that’s why constant attention is needed to maintain its appearance. There are things you should do and others you should avoid between appointments. They include:

Vacuum Regularly

This seems like the obvious chore, doesn’t it? But it’s sad to say that a lot of people are comfortable not vacuuming their carpets. Vacuuming regularly at least once a day will not just keep your carpet clean and pretty, it will extend the life of your carpet. This simple yet seemingly boring task removes loose dirt from your carpets so they don’t go deep into the fibers of your carpet and turn it gray. Wear and tear will also be reduced to a smaller rate.

Attend to Stains Quickly

As soon as they occur you will want to blot them out immediately. Special emphasis on the blot. That’s right, blot, don’t Scrub. Scrubbing makes the stain worse by spreading it and pushing it deeper into the fabrics if your carpet. Instead, blot the stains out carefully. It may look like you have to blot quickly so the stain doesn’t fall deep into the fibers, but at this point, rushing over it may yield unpleasant results. The key is to be as efficient at it as possible. When blotting use clean water and towels. You may have to teach your kids how to do this in your absence. We know kids love to play and experiment a lot.

Attend to Spills Immediately

It’s probably second nature to you to mop spills as with floors, but with carpets, you have to try a different approach. Mopping is kind of like rubbing and spreading the spill to the surrounding fabrics. Blot the spill instead like you would do stains. You have to do this quickly. A slight hesitation on your part may give rise to bad smell. When your carpet starts giving off these smells, you’ll be embarrassed to invite anyone or host a guest in your home. Be quick in your approach. Remember, ‘a stitch in time saves nine’. Whatever you do try it to mix harsh chemicals together to deal with spills and stains, they could be harmful to your carpet. Contact your carpet cleaner instead.

Don’t Wear Shoes on Your Carpet

If possible, you can prohibit the use of shoes on your carpet. Carpet cleaning is a daunting and time-wasting task – your guests will understand. Moreover, wear and tear will be reduced to a significant degree consequently extending the lifespan of your carpet.

If your home has carpeting, you understand just how dirty they are able to get. If you are concerned with how your carpets look, you will want to get them cleaned. However, what do you need to take into account? The following article can tell you what you need to know.

General Carpet Cleaning

Learn about the reputation of any carpet cleaning company you are considering hiring. There are many companies that are more reputable than others. Ask friends and family members for references, and also check online review sites for information. In this way, you can find a good match in a carpet cleaning professional.

  6. Before using a carpet cleaner, read the instructions. You need to get an idea of what kind of stains the product can remove and find out if you need to mix the product with water first. You need to understand these things ahead of time.
  7. If a stain is really hard to get out on your carpet, think about hiring a professional. Professionals have methods to remove things like blood, red wine, and even wax that home cleaning products cannot remove. This is done in a meticulous way to preserve the integrity of your carpet.
