Walked on. Stomped on. Run on. Your carpet needs help!

March 11, 2011 • Business, Local Business Review

The Ruiz family, Christian and Alyssa (on top!) and Socorro and Victor, would like to thank all their repeat clients, especially those who refer people to Pro Steamer. With their “Roswell Daily Special” you can get your whole house (up to 900 sq. ft.) of carpet cleaned for only $299.00!

Good news, bad news…..

Today’s quality carpet is designed to last a long time.

Generally speaking, a good quality carpet will “ugly out” before it wears out.

Think about this, since carpet is on the floor, getting walked on, spilled on and, on a day to day basis, family members not only drag in dirt, [auth] but pollutants and allergens.

If your home is about average, then you have about two million dust mites living with you, producing forty thousand dead bodies and forty million piles of feces every day.

The good news is that your carpet acts as a filter and traps all these unhealthy nuisances so you and your loved ones don’t breathe them over and over again.

Carpet is designed to hide dirt and resist stains and cleaning your carpet on a regular basis, every 8-10 months, will not only protect your investment but keep your indoor environment healthier.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized the need for regular carpet cleaning (see table.)

The EPA also recommends steam-cleaning (rinse & extraction) as the most thorough process to effectively dissolve and remove hazardous pollutants from your carpet.

Shaw Industries, the world’s leading carpet manufacturer, also recommends this method exclusively to safely clean and restore carpeting, including stain resist.

Follow your carpet manufacturer’s recommendations to avoid losing your warranty.

What benefits do YOU get with professional steam cleaning vs. a do-it-yourself job?

There is more to clean than just removing some of the surface soil.

Imagine what it would feel like to wiggle your toes down into soft, fluffy yarns once again.

Professional steam cleaning can bring your carpet back to life!

That means your carpet will not only be fluffier, but it will last longer too.

“I can’t fix everything, but at least I’ll tell you up front what I can do,” says Victor Ruiz, owner of Pro Steamer.

“We offer free, no obligation carpet inspections for your convenience.”

A truck mount steam cleaning will give you the most thorough cleaning because it heats water to between 220 to 240 degrees F. – and hotter water also means less cleaning agents!

Any cleaning method will get “some” results, but if you want to remove germs, bacteria, pollen, dirt, pet dander and millions of dust mites without chemical or soap residue, then you want to choose professional steam cleaning.

This preferred cleaning leaves carpet damp to the touch on average six hours, longer for heavily soiled carpets, but there are ways to speed up the drying time.

But think about this: What would you rather have, the cleanest, fluffiest carpet, or the fastest drying?

You love the look and feel of your carpet.

So, how do you protect your carpet and keep it looking like new for years to come?

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) offers the following tips to prolong the beauty and life of your carpet:

•  Keep walkways and entries clean.

•  Use walk-off mats at all entrances.

•  Vacuum regularly: at least twice a week.

•  Treat spills immediately.

•  Have carpet professionally cleaned annually: Light colored carpet may require more frequent professional cleanings.

What To Do When Water Damage Occurs

Broken pipes, leaky appliances and heavy rainstorms can teach an unexpected lesson on the destructive power of water. A little knowledge about what to do, combined with quick action, can help salvage your home and personal items. In most cases, only a professional can repair water-damaged flooring and furnishings.

The IICRC recommends the following actions to minimize damage while waiting for help to arrive:

∆  Stop the source!

∆  Increase airflow with open windows, fans and heating and air conditioning systems.

∆  Open doors, drawers, cupboards and closets to maintain optimal air circulation and promote drying.

∆  Move furnishings out of wet areas or protect furniture legs from absorption and damage with triple-folded aluminum foil.
