How often should you clean area rugs?

If carpet cleaning is something you are not afraid to invest time in, then you are on the right track. There is no way to keep the environment in your home clean and fresh without busting out the vacuum cleaner and removing the accumulated dust from your rugs and carpets.

You are probably wondering how often you should clean area rugs. According to professionals, there are many factors to consider in that regard, so there is no straightforward answer. Check to see if the manufacturer of your rug has some recommended cleaning times.

If not, consider the following to determine this period yourself:

  • Area Rugs CleaningVacuuming times – if your carpets and rugs only experience light soiling, then vacuuming once a week is more than enough to keep them in good shape. However, if you live with your family and there is high foot traffic in the area, you may need to up that time to two. Then there is also the pet factor. If you have pets in the home, it is wise to clean rugs and carpets at least twice a week. Anyone suffering from pet allergies might find the need to clean even 3-4 times per week. For a large home with many people, children and pets around, you can consider daily hoovering, to be sure no spoils lurk in the fibres.
  • Stain/spot cleaning – the general rule is that a stain on the rug should be removed as soon as you notice it. The more you wait, the worse it becomes, as it can set in and become impossible to clean. Make sure you adopt the right technique, which is blotting – applying pressure onto the stained area with a clean cloth/towel, to transfer the stain from the fibres.
  • Professional cleaning – having your rugs cleaned by professionals is a sure way to prolong their life and make sure there are no harmful bacteria, pests and allergens lurking inside the fibres. If you live alone, you can call the pros once every 12 months, or even less often, depending on how much time you spend at home. If you live with others, it is wise to consider professional cleaning every 6-12 months. For large families, experts recommend having the rugs and carpeted areas of the home deep cleaned by pros every 3-4 months.
  • Rotation of rugs – though technically it is not cleaning, rotating your rugs to even out the wear they experience is a great idea. Experts recommend doing so every six months. This way you will prolong the beautiful look of the rug and keep it in top shape for longer. In addition to rotating your rug, you should also learn to rotate the vacuuming pattern. Go in lines and then do a second run in columns to pick up the most dust and debris from the area.

Now that you know how often you should clean all rugs and carpets of your home, you are one step closer to maintaining a healthy environment.

8 unexpected ways to use your vacuum cleaner

A vacuum cleaner is undoubtedly your best friend when it comes to any form of carpet cleaning. Whether you have a big or small area to cover with it, the machine is always at the ready, prepared to remove dust and other contaminants from the fibres.

However, you should know that a vacuum cleaner is much more versatile than that. It is a tool to use around your home in various ways. Some of them you may have never considered, while others are pretty straightforward.

Here is a quick list for inspiration:

Use The Most Of Your Vacuum Cleaner

  • Deodorise your home – if you saturate a cotton ball with your preferred essential oil and drop it into the bag or canister of your vacuum cleaner, you will soon enough feel its refreshing fragrance. As air courses through the machine, the scent will be released inside the room. This is a great way to deodorise the place.
  • Keep allergens at bay – when the weather is warm enough, you will find that windowsills and doors have become a hotspot for pollen. You can use the vacuum cleaner’s brush to clear the windowsills and the door track before that pollen makes its way inside your home. You can also clean the window screens this way.
  • Remove fleas – did you know that you don’t have to buy chemicals to get rid of fleas. According to many studies, vacuuming the area kills over 90% of them. Do a thorough run on all carpets and rugs you suspect are infested.
  • Icing out dents on the carpet – if you keep heavy furniture on the carpet for prolonged periods of time, you will find that there are dents in the fibres. To fix this, place ice cubes there and let them melt. Vacuum the moisture and notice how the carpet returns its shape to normal.
  • Remove crumbs – some crumbs are easy to catch – those on the dinner table and under it, for example. However, there are certain areas that crumbs end up into, which are very difficult to reach by hand. In that case, use the crevice attachment.
  • Vacuum Cleaning TipsClean the washing machine’s lint screen – cleaning this one part of your washing machine is very important, or else it could get damaged. Use the brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner to clean the lint screen. Conclude by attaching the crevice tool and removing any leftovers in the lint cavity.
  • Remove stuck crumbs from the keyboard – crumbs stuck under keyboard buttons are just part of the nasties you can find there, especially if you eat food while on the PC. Use the crevice tool and run it across the keyboard several times. For further cleaning service, dip a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol and brush between keys.
  • Cleaning kitchen appliances – to keep your fridge in top shape, you should clean it on the inside and the outside. Using the vacuum cleaner for such a task is a smart thing to do.

As you can see, there are plenty of uses your vacuum cleaner possess. It is up to you to make extra use of this carpet cleaning tool.

5 tips for taking care of your vacuum

The vacuum cleaner is largely in charge of keeping your carpet free from dust and a whole lot of other annoying allergens. This workhorse of your household sees its fair share of carpet cleaning over time, and it only makes sense for you to care and attend to it. You will do well to think of your vacuum cleaner as an investment. As such, it needs to be preserved for as long as possible.

You can do your part in that regard by minding a few important tips:

  • Vacuuming TipsEmpty the bag often enough – one of the most important things you can do in regards to keeping your vacuum in good shape is to empty the bag often enough. Don’t wait till it is all the way full, but empty it when it is 2/3 full. Any more than that and the vacuum cleaner will simply not work properly. Even worse, you will find that instead of picking up dust and debris, the vacuum cleaner is returning it in to the room, just because there is no more space left in the bag.
  • Empty the bin often enough – for vacuum cleaner models that come with no bag; you need also be mindful of how full the bin is. A lot of these vacuums have a clear container for you to see just how full it is. Even though there may be some space available, the consensus among carpet cleaners is that the bin should be cleaned after each use of the vacuum.
  • Inspect the filters and hoses – most of the advanced model vacuum cleaners come with filters attached to help purify the air. Their role is to catch the particles that could otherwise end up indoors. If your cleaner has a filter, best make sure you clean it and replace it periodically. Rinse plastic filters and give paper and fabric ones a good shake. It is essential to keep a filter clean, especially a HEPA one. If you don’t do that, you could be making the air indoors worse.Carpet Cleaning Services
  • Check the hose – at times the vacuum cleaner may snatch onto some small objects, such as toy parts and socks. You can usually tell when that is the case when you notice the vacuum cleaner is just not working right. Peep into the hole to see if there is any obstruction visible. If you see anything, stick a hook in there to remove it.
  • Take it for repairs – at times you may feel like the vacuum cleaner is not in its best shape. Instead of throwing it in the trash, you can take it for repairs. It may be only a small problem that needs to be looked into. In any case, you should always do this if you feel like the cleaner is not performing at its best.

All of these tips are meant to teach you how to take care of your vacuum cleaner. Thanks to them, you can perform better carpet cleaning service at home.

The most common carpet cleaning methods used by companies

So you have decided to hire a professional carpet cleaning company, as vacuuming alone doesn’t cut it. One thing you will immediately notice is that you have plenty of options. Companies nowadays are armed with advanced tools and have developed methods that can get your carpet to a perfectly clean state. However, the means of accomplishing this are different. Make sure you consult with the company on what type of carpet cleaning is best suitable for your carpet.

Only then can you reap the rewards of such service in full:

  • The most common carpet cleaning methods used by companiesCarpet shampooing – shampooing is a method that was more popular in the past than it is now. When encapsulation became a viable cleaning method, shampooing took a step back, though companies still use it. It is essential for the company using this method to be an experienced one. That is because sometimes of the wet foam left behind. Not only does this take longer to dry, but also becomes sticky in time, mostly contributing to a heavily soiled carpet. Ideally, there will be little to no foam left behind after your carpet’s cleaned.
  • Encapsulation – the method of foam encapsulation utilises synthetic detergents that later crystalise into powder as they dry. In the process, loosened dirt particles within the carpet fibres get encapsulated into the powder as it is applied. After that, the process concludes with vacuuming of the solution. As a result, the carpet dries faster. There is also less residue left on the mat, which makes it an eco-friendly cleaning option. It is an excellent pick for medium-soiled rugs but may struggle against heavily-soiled carpets.
  • Hot water extraction – also referred to as steam carpet cleaning, this method is probably the most well-known. The cleaning process involves some type of cleaning agent applied on soiled surface. The carpet is then agitated with a brush and rinsed. Once the cleaning solution has settled, the carpet is washed with the aid of specialized equipment and left to dry. There is some downtime associated with getting your carpet cleaned this way, as you won’t be able to use it right away. However, it is still a much-preferred method for cleaning.Carpet Cleaning Services London
  • Dry carpet cleaning – one of the latest developed methods for carpet sanitation is dry carpet cleaning. It uses some cleaning compound or powder, applied to the bottom part with the aid of a counter-rotating brush. As the carpet fibre opens up, the mixture settles inside, essentially acting as a microsponge. The result is that the dissolved dirt gets absorbed and can, later on, be easily removed.
  • Bonnet cleaning – this is the go-to method when quick surface cleaning is the goal. Carpet bonneting mainly addresses the top part of the carpet fibre with a motorised machine and some cleaning solution. It is a popular way of cleaning carpets in hotels, as it provides a quick fix for heavy traffic areas.

Each of these carpet cleaning methods has advantages and disadvantages. Pick the one you think will be of most use for your place.

Top carpet cleaning methods used by companies

You may feel like carpet cleaning is the most important action to take in order to preserve your carpet at home and you are right. With proper care, a rug can last much more than when you leave it to fend for itself.

You may even want to resort to booking a professional carpet cleaning service, because of the specialised solution and the time it saves. However, not all services they offer are the same. Every company employs different methods so you should keep that in mind.

Here is what you can expect from professionals:

Top carpet cleaning methods used by companies

  • Hot water extraction – you will also find this referred to as steam carpet cleaning. In essence, this method uses hot water to agitate carpet fibres and remove the dirt that is on them. The technique usually requires a specific solution to be used on soiled surfaces, which is then brushed and rinsed off. Since the method involves moisture, the carpet must be left to dry before it can be used again. You need to keep this downtime of drying in mind, especially if you are using this service for your office. In that sense, it is a good idea to utilise such a method in the later afternoon, so that you can use it again in the morning after it has had enough time to dry out.
  • Shampooing – shampooing carpets has become somewhat of an outdated method, now that there are more efficient ways of sanitation. The main issue many people have with it is that the carpet is left with plenty of wet foam within the fibres, which takes an extra-long time to dry out. That is not the only drawback – the residue becomes somewhat sticky afterwards since no rinse takes place. You may want to consider this cleaning method only when no other alternative is available.
  • Encapsulation – foam encapsulation features synthetic detergents, which crystalise into foam form when they dry. The dirt particles within the fibres are encapsulated into the powder solution, which is then vacuumed/brushed when it dries out. This carpet cleaning method is the successor of carpet shampooing. The amount of chemical residue on the carpet is minimal, therefore ranking this method as a reliable, eco-friendly option.
  • Bonnet CleaningBonnet cleaning – this method is used when the surface part of the carpet requires more cleaning. It is performed with a motorised machine with a spinning pad and a cleaning solution to deal with the dirt and spoils on the carpet surface. Bonnet cleaning is a fantastic way of cleaning very high-traffic areas, such as hotels and carpeted offices. There is not much moisture involved so that the areas can be used immediately. The thing to consider with this method is that it will leave deeply ingrained spoils inside the carpet, which means you will likely need to follow up with another form of cleaning.
  • Dry carpet cleaning – features specific compound, which is applied to the bottom part of the carpet with a specialised machine. This mixture is typically made of some biodegradable material, which works the same way as a micro-sponge to absorb dissolved dirt.

Each of these carpet cleaning methods can be used to restore your carpet to a great condition. It is up to you to decide which one serves you best. You can consult with a cleaning company and then make an informed decision.

Carpet Cleaning TipsMaintaining your carpet clean and fresh at all times is necessary to ensure the piece lasts long enough. Usually, a carpet can last for good ten years, but if you ignore cleaning, that period is no longer than five. You wouldn’t want to buy a new carpet in just a few years’ time, do you?

Undoubtedly, stains present the biggest threat to your carpet. No matter how careful you are and how much you try, sooner or later an accident will strike. You can take the right steps to remove the stain that guarantees a positive outcome.

Here is what to do when faced with 4 common stains at home:

  • Pet stains – if you have included a new pet to the family members, you must be ready to face a few accidents. It takes time to properly train your four-legged companion to do their business where they should and not on the carpet. In the meantime, do your best to protect the carpet. The sooner you react in case of a pet stain, the better. If the stain is wet, blot up excess liquid. Don’t scrub and smear, as that will only spread the stain. If the stain has dried on the fibres, you must first moisten it. It is best to use a specific carpet cleaning product for this purpose. To deal with the odour, you can mix one part vinegar with one part warm water. Spray on the stain, let it sit a few minutes and then blot. A mix of hydrogen peroxide with mild dishwashing detergent works too.
  • Coffee stains – a brown spot on the carpet is not a pleasant thing to see. Approach such stain as usual, by blotting the area with a clean cloth. Common Carpet StainsIf the liquid is too much, replace the cloth often to avoid spreading the stain further. Next, apply a mix of water, vinegar and dish washing detergent, rinse with water and repeat if necessary. If your carpet is a Polypropylene type, it may respond well to a mix of bleach and water.
  • Ink stains – ink stains are tricky to remove. A quick response is almost a must; otherwise, the chances of removal are slim. What you need to do is dampen a cloth with isopropyl alcohol and dab the stained area. Don’t rub and scrub, as that will only spread the stain. Show a little persistence, as ink is not easy to clean.
  • Blood stains – there is usually a lot of unrest and stress associated with blood stains, but the reality is that they aren’t that tough to handle. You just have to remember to use cold water, as warm temperatures coagulate blood and make it nearly impossible to clean. Mix two teaspoons of grease-fighting detergent in a spritz bottle and apply. Blot with a clean cloth and see if you need to apply the mix again.

Now that you know how to treat the most common stains, you should feel better about your carpet and more readily face any emergencies.

How to best prepare your carpets for a professional clean

It is true that staying on top of your carpet cleaning needs can be troublesome at times. You may not have the time to address cleaning properly. Then, even if you do, vacuuming tends to leave some dust and dirt behind, which accumulates within the fibres. Resorting to a professional carpet cleaning firm is the way to go.

You may think that you can just welcome the cleaners in your home and be done with it. However, there are specific steps you must take to ensure the most of such visit. They will save you time, prevent any delays and accidents and also make the work of the experts easier. This will, in turn, benefit the outcome of the cleaning service.

Here is what you should do before the cleaners arrive:

  • Remove clutter – professional carpet cleaners utilise some gear and tools to get the job done. Hoses and cords will be strewn across the room. And it means items on the floor will get in the way and pose a hazard. Shoes, bags, vases, plants and such are best kept out of the way. Move all of that in a place cleaning technicians will not work in to ensure they have an easy time manoeuvring around the room with carpet.
  • Vacuum clean – while some companies do not require that you vacuum before they come, it is a good thing to do. That way you will remove the top layer of dust, leaving the particles within the fibres of the carpet vulnerable to the steam cleaner. It will make the outcome of the carpet cleaning service even better.
  • Remove furniture – if there is any area of your carpet that stands under furniture, it is recommended to remove it. Carpet cleaners are not licensed to displace any furniture items; they will only clean the carpet surface that is unobstructed. For this reason, you should move tables, chairs and even the sofa, if it stands on top of the carpet. That way the carpet will receive a thorough clean, which you will be able to feel.
  • Protect the corners – the experts are going to pull cords and hoses across the room. At times, these items are going to rub against the corners of the baseboards throughout the room. To avoid unwanted black marks caused by the friction, you can use painter’s tape where hoses and cords are going to rub. The corners and the base of the stairs are particularly vulnerable, so focus your taping efforts on them.
  • Keep pets away – to not cause stress to your pets; you should keep them contained in a room the service is not going to take place in. Ideally, you want to stay out of the home for the duration of the clean, to avoid causing them great discomfort. The loud noise of the carpet cleaning service can easily frighten dogs, cats and birds.

These steps are relatively easy to take, but they make a significant difference in the quality of service you are provided. Do invest some effort to prepare your home for the cleaners’ arrival and you will not be disappointed by the outcome.

How to Make The Most Of Vacuuming

While several available cleaning solutions can get rid of dust mites and annoying allergens from your home, not many of them compare to the simple act of vacuuming. A vacuum cleaner is one of the most important tools in regards to carpet cleaning and sanitation.

There are multiple types of vacuum cleaners, some more expensive than others. However, it doesn’t matter what appliance you use, if you don’t use it properly. You need the right carpet cleaning technique to make the most of the vacuuming.

Here are few tips that you can use to clean like a pro:

  • Be a little preventive – even the best appliance is powerless against all of the dust and dirt that ends up inside your home on a daily basis. You have to be a little preventive about it. For instance, limit shoes inside the home: everyone that enters is expected to take their shoes off at the door. Place a mat in front so that people can wipe their feet. You will be surprised how much of a difference such measures make.
  • It is not enough to vacuum once – no vacuum is powerful enough to lift off all of the ingrained dirt, dust, pet hairs that end up on the carpet. You will need to go over some areas multiple times to ensure they are clean. Also, vacuum from various directions, this will ensure the spoils are collected from all sides.
  • Don’t clean with the bag full – you need to be more regular at changing the vacuum bag or emptying the canister if your vacuum doesn’t use a bag. Otherwise, you will just not be doing a very good job at cleaning the floors. Always keep an eye on how full the bag is and replace it when it gets about three-quarters of its volume full. 
  • Carpet Cleaning Service In LondonTreat stains on the spot – vacuum cleaners do not remove set stains. To deal with a stain, you should treat it immediately as it occurs. Acquire an effective spot cleaner for your type of carpet and use it to minimise the damage or call in the professional carpet cleaners.
  • Vacuum under furniture – the fact that furniture covers a large area of the carpet doesn’t mean that area is safe from dust and dirt. It doesn’t have to be every time you vacuum, but once every few months you should move furniture around to get the dust under it. It is a hard job, but there is no other way to clean carpets and floors properly.
  • Use the right setting – pretty much every vacuum cleaner out there has different settings, which you can adjust according to the surface you want to clean. A shaggy carpet requires a different approach to a hardwood floor for instance.

As you can see, vacuuming isn’t a no-brainer task you should get done within zero time. Instead, it should be a job you want to be good at because it determines the cleanliness of your home. The tips mentioned above can help you improve your vacuuming skills.

5 benefits of getting your carpets professionally cleaned

If you want to stay on top of your cleaning duties, you have to invest some time in vacuuming every single week. This most basic form of carpet cleaning ensures that a good amount of dust and dirt is removed and that the carpet looks in decent shape. It is, however, not enough.

Carpets require more care than just vacuuming. Every carpet and rug accumulates some dirt and solid particles within the fibres, which even the most powerful vacuum cleaners cannot deal with. For this reason, it is a good idea to resort to professional carpet cleaning service. With the latest equipment and proven methods, experts can truly restore your carpet.

But that is just one of all benefits that such services present:

  • 5 benefits of getting your carpets professionally cleanedSave time and effort – vacuum cleaning is not exactly an effortless chore, which you can deal with in 5 minutes. Instead of wasting all that time and effort every single week, you can have professionals deal with the job instead. That way you won’t need to worry about the spoils present on your carpet and how to clean them. You can then spend your time however you wish and forget about one annoying chore, which needs to be addressed on a regular basis.
  • ‘Healthy’ carpets – one of the most important reasons to hire professionals for your carpet cleaning needs is to ensure there are no dangerous allergens lurking within the pile. Thanks to specialised gear and the effective method of steam cleaning, your carpets can be perfectly sanitised and restored to flawless condition. No longer will you cough and sneeze upon entering a room with a carpet that triggers your allergies. You will also have peace of mind seeing your children play on the carpet, as you know it is as clean as it can ever be.
  • Prolong the life of your carpet – another notable benefit of hiring experts for your carpet cleaning needs is that they can ensure perfect care for the item. Whether it is your everyday area rug or a very expensive carpet – professionals know how to treat them accordingly. Your carpeting will receive top level care and thus last much longer than if you leave it without such aid throughout the years.
  • carpet cleaningKeep stains at bay – carpet cleaners will not just address stains on your carpet – both old and new ones – but they can also ensure that the item is protected against future stains. You can ask for a special procedure called scotch guarding, which uses a solution for carpet protection. Any stains that occur afterwards can be cleaned with ease.
  • Prevent mould/mildew growth – mould and mildew growth is a serious issue, which can affect your health negatively. This is often an issue with humidity, especially if your home has been flooded. It causes mould and mildew spores to grow. Thorough carpet cleaning through utilising professional gear can eliminate the spores and restore your carpet.

As you can see, there is every reason to resort to professional carpet cleaning service. Search for a local company and make the call – your carpets will thank you big time.

keep carpet clean longer

If you have just bought a new carpet, you deserve to be congratulated. Carpets can really enhance the looks of any room, as they are often considered focal points of the interior. One thing you must not forget is that carpet cleaning and maintenance is needed to ensure the new purchase stays in top shape.

As far as carpet cleaning is concerned, you probably know the basics. However, what you may use to expand your knowledge with is some extra info on how to actually keep your carpet clean for longer. The following tips are specifically aimed to help you with this:

  • Regular vacuuming – one of the simplest ways to ensure your carpet doesn’t accumulate a large portion of dust and other solid particles is to vacuum it regularly. Get yourself a good vacuum cleaner and invest 30 minutes to get the dust out of your carpets every two weeks. In case your carpets see increased traffic most of the time, you should vacuum every week. If you skip this task, it won’t be long before your carpets look shabby and pale.
  • Don’t let stains linger – stains are a carpet’s worst enemy, but they aren’t that much of a threat if you handle them quickly. Whatever the stains is – wine, food, blood, mud, ink – there is always a solution that works well. Sure, some stains are tough and may take several attempts, but you should always try to deal with the problem immediately. Remember that the longer you leave a stain on the carpet, the less chance you have of actually cleaning it later, even with the help of professional carpet cleaners. Educate yourself online what works against the different types of stains and act in time should an accident occur.
