Don’t Use Over The Counter Carpet Spotters.

Those store bought cleaners tend to leave a residue of detergent that becomes gummy and attracts dirt and soil. But, if you insist on using one please use a very small amount, I’ve seen that stuff turn carpet spots into “dirt magnets” instantly.

Food Spill

It doesn’t matter if it is chocolate, spaghetti sauce or blueberry pie. This is how to remove any food spill from your carpet.

  1. Pick up all the food (if it’s an older spill, gently scrape all the dried food off the surface of the carpet).
  2. Next, put a bit of your hand washing dish detergent into a spray bottle filled with HOT tap water. (Approx 2 drops of detergent to 2 Cups of water.) Then spray (don’t soak) the area and proceed to blot (don’t rub). Use a clean, white, absorbent towel (nothing that could bleed/transfer color).
  3. Continue… Continue reading

Wine Spill

Merlot, Chardonnay, Cab, or Blush? It doesn’t matter what kind of wine, what matters is how you take care of that spot or spill. First, blot and absorb up as much of the spill as you can. Next, get your hand dish washing detergent solution and mix 1 part of this solution to 2 parts hydrogen peroxide.

Thoroughly spray the spill (without over wetting) then place a piece of plastic wrap over the area so the hydrogen peroxide solution can have a chance to do its job. Let it sit like that for approximately 2 hours. Next,… Continue reading

Candle Wax Spills

Many people love to burn candles in the home. They make the home smell good and give a warm inviting atmosphere, but when a hot candle gets knocked over that wax makes for a very tricky spot to clean. First of all, if the spot is fresh, blot up as much of the wax as you can. If it’s an older spot, scrape off as much as you can without doing any damage to the fibers of your carpet. Next, grab your iron and some clean, absorbent towels. WARNING: Your carpet fibers can melt or burn… Continue reading

Urine Mess

This is probably the #1 call I get. If the spot is fresh, cover the area with baking soda (synthetic fibers only) and let the area dry completely. Then vacuum it up. The baking soda pulls the stain out and works amazingly. If the spot is older and already dry, use the same method described for removing the urine.

Encap and The Environment

Six Ways Encapsulation Helps the Environment

1. Less Water Consumption Encapsulation uses less water. Typically, each gallon of water will clean about 300 square feet of carpet. So we are taking less fresh clean drinking water from our environment.   2. Lower Moisture in the Building There’s also less moisture being introduced to the building, and the carpet normally dries in an hour or two. Lowering the moisture threshold in commercial buildings is advantageous to the heath of the indoor environment.   3. No Wastewater Wastewater from carpet cleaning includes contaminants that were removed from the carpet as well as… Continue reading
