Tampa Upholstery Cleaning Company Shares Tips for Removing Ink from Leather Couch

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

I recently spoke to one of my Brandon carpet cleaning clients who is the proud parent of a high-energy youngster. She called me in a panic because he had accidentally stained her leather couch with ink from a ballpoint pen.

She wanted to try to remove the stain before having me come out.

If you ever need to remove ink from a leather sofa, time is of the essence. A stain is easier to remove right after it happens because leather is porous.

One of the best ways to remove ink spots from a leather couch is to use undiluted rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab. Before you apply any cleaning product to a leather couch, try it on a part of the couch that is not visible to make sure that it will not discolor the leather.

When you’re ready to start removing the stain, the steps are simple:

•    Moisten the swab with alcohol and lightly rub it over the ink stain to transfer the ink to the swab.

•    Repeat until the ink stain is gone.

•    Wipe the area with a damp cloth to rinse away any remaining alcohol.

•    The alcohol will dry the leather, so you may want to use the leather conditioner recommended by the couch’s maker to restore the leather.

If the ink stain does not come out, call a professional upholstery cleaning company.

National Cleaning Specialists cleans carpets, tile, wood floors, and upholstery throughout Tampa Bay. With more than 20 years experience, our technicians have the spot removal know how to make your leather couch look like new.

Wood floor cleaning and refinishing: Removing Quick Shine Floor Finish from your hardwood floors

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Removing Holloway’s Quick Shine, Orange Glo, or many other wood floor care products can be a very tough, costly and fustrating job if you don’t know what you are doing.

National Cleaning Specialist of Tampa Bay can remove and restore wood floors. For removal of wood floor cleaners and floor finish call 813-435-1331 serving Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Brandon, Valrico, Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Lutz Florida areas.

We recently had a customer hire us to clean and remove the product ” Quick Shine Floor Finish and Orange Glow from her new laminate floors which had caused an uneven and blotchy sheen. We were able to remove the product and clean her laminate floors following these steps

Products needed:

• Spray bottle (optional)

• Scotch-Brite abrasive pad (green scrub pad with yellow sponge-NOT an SOS, Brillo or steel wool pad)

• Soft towels

• New and well rinsed sponge mop OR terrycloth mop

• Rubber/latex gloves and safety goggles (recommended to prevent eye/skin irritation when handling IFT)

Process

It’s best to begin with a test section in an inconspicuous area (i.e. behind a door). We recommend working in

small sections as you complete this process. Complete all steps before moving onto another section of the

floor.

1. Apply a SMALL amount of the IFT solution to a section of the floor. Use a spray bottle to mist the floor

or squirt a small amount and spread it with a soft cloth. Apply only enough cleaner to wet the floor.

2. Use the abrasive pad and scrub the area. This should remove the wax buildup.

3. After scrubbing the area, wipe the section with a water dampened cloth.

4. The final step is to apply Squeaky Cleaner with a microfiber mop. No water rinse is necessary after this

cleaner is applied. Wipe/mop the floor until it is dry – do not leave the floor wet.

If this is successful in removing the contaminant, proceed with the rest of the floor, following all steps. You may

need to repeat steps 1 & 2 more than once.

If you are not successful in removing the contaminant with this process, you need to remove the remaining

product by abrading the floor (screening or sanding). It is recommended to hire a professional flooring

contractor if abrasion techniques are required.

Carpet Cleaning Wesley Chapel: Ink Stain Removal

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

While cleaning carpet in Wesley Chapel, Florida today, we ran across a carpet that had several ink stains. The customer had rented a carpet cleaning machine which had made the ink stain spread into several large areas.

The first step we used in removing the carpet stain was to apply a product called Stain Zone. This was done around the spot which will help prevent the ink stain from spreading.

We then used a specialty spotter like P.I.G. to blot and remove as much as the color pigment as possible. We had to do this several times and went through two towels.

Once this was done we followed with All Solve to rinse the solvent from the carpet. We also applied a neutral carpet spotter to help remove the stain.

Once we went through these steps, we then rinsed the carpet with our Truck Mounted Hot Water Extraction process. The customer was very pleased with the results.

Deep Clean your Carpet Today! 813-435-1331

Visit us at Deep Clean your Carpets today serving Lutz, Wesley Chapel, Brandon, Valrico, and all of Tampa Bay

Today we cleaned carpets and tile in lutz, Florida 33558. We encountered soil filtration lines around the baseboards and several coffee stains.

If you have light colored carpet, you may have experienced these dark lines that appear on the carpet. This soiling is called filtration soiling because it comes from air passing through the carpet as it is attempting to get through the crack between the carpet and the baseboard or under a closed door. As the air passes through the edge of the carpet pile, this microscopic soiling is deposited there.

This occurs over a significant period of time and is not noticed until a build up has occurred.

This type of soiling is difficult to remove because the soil particles are so fine that they penetrate deep into the carpet pile, sometimes into the backing of the carpet.

Can it be removed? Sometimes. With special products, time and effort, reasonable results can sometimes be achieved.

To help prevent filtration soiling, vacuum and wipe the edges of the carpeting on a regular basis. Be careful around the tack strip on the edge of the carpeting, it could nick your fingers!

If you are in need of this type of Cleaning we have special products to remove these types of stains.

For 24 hour water extraction for your home or business in the Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Brandon and St. Petersburg areas

Please call 813-435-1331

This morning one of my clients in the Citrus Park area of Tampa, Florida needed water extracted from their carpets. The toilet overflowed  and caused their carpets to become soaked with water.

This may not seemed to be a big deal to the home owner but several problems could have ac cured if they did not act quickly especially since it happened on the second floor.

Besides of having standing water, homeowners should be aware of ceiling damage since the sub floor could leak to the first floor, mold and odor issues, and electrical.

When You Encounter Water Damage:

Turn off the water source – If you cannot determine the source of the water leak, then turn off the water at the water meter.

Be aware of electrical currents throughout the building. If flooding exists, do not use any electrical appliances.

Take steps to remove as much excess water from your floors until National Floor Care Specialist arrives.

Pay attention to possible sagging ceilings which could soften down and possible collapse on top of you.

Save any valuables by moving them out of the water. If the furniture is too heavy try placing aluminum foil below the legs for easier maneuverability.

Lift the bottom of floor length drapes off the floor to avoid further damage from the water.

Does Your Wood Floor Need to be Recoated or Refinished?

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

A complete refinishing may be necessary

National Cleaning Specialist of Tampa Bay recommends if areas of your floor have been worn down to the bare wood, if the floor has deep stains or color differences in the wood, if there’s chipping or peeling, or if your floor cannot be re coated due to factors discussed above, you’ll have to do a complete refinish.

If these signs are not readily apparent,you can use this simple test to determine what care your floors need:

Take this simple test

Find a high traffic area where the finish is likely to be the most worn, and pour a tablespoon of water onto the floor.

If the water beads up and you can wipe it without a trace, the finish is still working and you don’t need to do anything just yet.

If the water slowly soaks into the wood floor, creating a moderately darkish spot, the floor is partially worn. You may be able to get away with a recoating. Consult your wood flooring contractor for the best course of action.

If the water immediately disappears into the wood leaving an obvious dark spot, it’s time to refinish the floor.

For routine cleaning of wood floors by sweeping and vacuuming along with use of Squeaky Cleaner will maintain the floor’s original appearance.
