It is time for Spring cleaning
It’s still Winter, but just for one more week so it is time to clean up all the dust mites, animal hair, dust, body dander and any other unseen critters that might have been lurking in your indoor environment over the last several months. Clean for you and your children’s health and to keep your carpet looking its best.
Allison’s Professional Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning has been cleaning carpet and upholstery for over 30 years in Roswell. Harry Allison feels that people are looking for reasonable prices, good workmanship and trustworthiness.
Now is the time to call Allison’s Professional Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning so they can schedule your Spring carpet cleaning.
With the economy the way it is, it really makes sense to take care of your carpets. A clean carpet will last a lot longer than a dirty one will and, with money tight, it only makes economical sense “to clean instead of replace.” Regular carpet maintenance will add to the longevity of your carpet investment. Overall cleaning should be often enough that the carpet is not allowed to become excessively soiled.
Professional carpet cleaners will help keep your carpet fresher, brighter and newer looking longer. Allison’s equipment employs the latest technology, both [auth] from a cleaning performance and safety perspective.
The carpet mills say…
When communicating with carpet mills regarding cleaning frequency, there is a distinction between what is required to comply with the warranty and ideals of how often they would prefer carpet to be cleaned.
A statement from Shaw says this: “Our requirement is that carpet be cleaned at least once every two years in order to maintain warranties. Ideally, a carpet should be cleaned every 12 to 18 months, depending on the family and home.”
Many manufacturers provide extensive information on -commercial carpet cleaning. The Total Solution Carpet Care Guide from Beaulieu Commercial states that ” … carpet must be proactively maintained before soiling becomes noticeable.”
The guide goes on to explain that carpet cleaning includes preventive maintenance through the use of walk-off mats, daily spot and spill cleanup, vacuuming daily or even more often. It suggests interim cleaning frequency ranging from weekly to twice a year and deep cleaning from quarterly to “only when required.”
Why do we need heat when cleaning carpet?
Heat is recognized by professional cleaners as an integral part of the process of cleaning. Many truckmount manufacturers use heat specifications as a major marketing message to sell their equipment because carpet cleaners know that high heat makes cleaning easier and faster.
Commercial carpet cleaning
Commercial carpet is a unique animal. It’s not like the fluffy stuff in Mrs. Jones’ living room, installed over a squishy eight-pound pad. Mrs. Jones’ carpet has plenty of airflow, making it ideal to clean with hot water extraction.
By comparison, commercial carpet is normally glued directly to the floor, without padding. Typically, the tufts of fiber are densely packed together to the point that it would be hard to separate the tuft bundles with a scalpel. Since the tufts of fiber are crammed together and the carpet is glued to the floor, there is minimal airflow, making it a real challenge to achieve consistent results with hot water extraction. Proper encapsulation cleaning can greatly reduce the potential for wicking.
The encapsulation process is changing the landscape when it comes to commercial carpet care. Ask Allison’s Professional Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning for more information.
Tile and Grout Cleaning
Allison’s Professional Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning now offers expert tile cleaning with their new Hydro-Force SX•12 tile and grout cleaner. Routine care and cleaning of tile and grout involves many decisions about what to use and how to use it.
Another important element of tile and stone care has to do with identifying the extent of cleaning needed. There’s a significant difference between routine cleaning and something that goes beyond the average job. Routine cleaning has to do with removing everyday dirt.
In addition to creating poor aesthetics, dirt particles can scratch the flooring surface. That’s why routine tile and stone care starts with dusting or dry mopping regularly to remove dirt particles.
For routine cleaning, it’s important to not only know what to use, but what to avoid. To this day, some cleaning professionals mistakenly believe that it’s OK to use products like vinegar, bleach, ammonia and general purpose cleaners or abrasive cleansers on tile and stone flooring. Those products should be avoided because they can erode stone, grout and some types of tile, and can strip sealers, leaving an unprotected surface susceptible to staining.
Instead of using general-purpose products for routine cleaning, it’s important to use pH-neutral cleaners specifically formulated for tile or stone. Recommended for daily use, these products are chemically balanced to effectively remove a variety of material without damaging the tile or stone. Some are available as a wipe for easy cleaning of tile counter tops and other relatively small areas. Regular use of these cleaners prevents a buildup of dirt, scum and other deposits that can compromise the floor’s natural beauty. These products also require no rinsing.
For routine cleaning of porous natural stone and grout joints, an ideal product is one that cleans and seals in the same application. This advanced technology removes dirt and adds a water- and oil-repellent sealer that protects the surface from staining and makes it easier to keep clean.
The light sealer also helps extend the protection achieved when the tile or stone is originally sealed.
