How To Clean A Furnished Room Of Carpet

When cleaning carpet, Brighthouse Chem-Dry utilizes an innovative method of carpet and area rug cleaning called Hot Carbonating Extraction or “HCE”.

HCE is recognized as one of the safest and best ways to clean carpet.

Hardwood floor refinishing in Tampa: Restore and refurbish wood floors

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Hardwood floor refinishing can be a very dusty and messy process if you don’t choose the right floor refinishing process, but is important for people wanting to improve their house and prepare it for sale, and if you want to improve even more, you see this 5 improvements to boost your home’s value. So, you should explore your floor refinishing options first. When comes to restoring or refurbishing your wood floors you have three main services you can choose from.

  1. Cleaning: This process will remove contaminants from your wood floors such Orange Glo or Rejuvenate floor Cleaner you can contact Gold Coast pressure cleaning. While this process will make a big difference in appearance, it will not remove any scratches�
    As it ages, hardwood flooring can get scratched and dull, humblerise.com. But unlike other types of flooring, hardwood flooring can make a comeback. All you have to do is refinish it.
    Hardwood flooring can take 10 to 12 complete sanding and refinishing jobs during its lifetime. Engineered wood flooring can be refinished once of twice, depending on the thickness of the hardwood veneer.
    A word of caution for DIYers: You’ll save money by doing your own wood floor refinishing, but mistakes show up big time. The chief challenge is handling a drum sander — a heavy piece of equipment you get from a tool rental store. Properly handled, it’s a marvel. But linger too long in one spot and you’ll carve a divot that’ll stare back at you for years.

    DIY Floor Refinishing

    Hardwood floor refinishing is dusty and noisy. Always wear a good dust mask or respirator, ear protection, and goggles. Seal doorways off doorways with plastic sheeting and turn off forced-air HVAC to keep dust from circulating throughout your house.
    There are two levels of refinishing hardwood floors.
    Buffing is the easiest . If scratches and wear are only on the surface finish and the wood underneath is in good shape, you can restore the topcoat by buffing, a process also called screening.
    You’ll need to rent a floor buffing tool with a series of screen grits to restore the luster to your floor’s topcoat. A buffing tool is much less aggressive than a drum sander and easier to use. Sweep and vacuum up any dust between each grit.
    Refinish your floors with either low-VOC water based finish or polyurethane floor finish (about $60 per gallon).
    Note that hardwood floors that have been waxed or cleaned with an oil soap can’t be buffed unless you first remove any residue. Otherwise, you’ll get a blotchy finish. Use mineral spirits or a wax remover to take off any old wax or oil soap before beginning.
    Sanding and refinishing hardwood floors gives you the chance to completely restore old, damaged flooring according to the London office cleaners, It also gives you the chance to change the color of your hardwood flooring with stain.
    Rent a drum sander and a progression of grits — 40 grit, 60 grit, and finish up with 100-grit. Remove baseboards. While sanding, keep the sander moving to prevent gouging the flooring. You won’t be able to get too close to your walls, so remove the remaining finish along the edges with a hand-held orbital sander.
    After you’ve sanded down to bare wood, fill any cracks with color-matched wood filler. Apply the stain and allow to dry thoroughly before applying two to three coats of finish.

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.

Why Should You Use a Home Cleaning Service? 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. Using a home earning service ensures a healthy living environment for your family , make sure to check out the website and find the services https://www.housecleaningpeterborough.com.

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. The floor finish also showed its traces on the kitchen door, and so, the expertise of a hinged aluminium door replacement company was highly palpable. 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. We know many reputable Melbourne cleaning services should anyone need to be pointed in the direction of good cleaning professionals. Study the Interstate Removalist Quotes prior to moving to a new place to discover excellent service at reasonable prices.

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.

Carpet and Floor Cleaning in Lutz, Florida and Atlanta

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

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. Platinum explains that correct execution of carpet cleaning involves the right chemicals, we encountered soil filtration lines around the baseboards and several coffee stains.

Just take a moment to think about all the things that hide deep down in the fiber of your carpet. While it is quite easy to notice a fault in your sliding door and contact 24hr-sliding-door-repair.com day or night to come and fix it but the dust, dirt, allergens, bacteria, pet and human hair, grime, and  many other things which reside in your carpet is almost impossible to trace yet very harmful to health. If you still want a reason as to why is it important to regularly clean your carpet? Read below to find the benefits of regularly cleaning your carpets.
In case you didn’t know, according to Albrite Commercial Cleaners, which is the top cleaning company in UK ” The carpet fibers act as a filter, eventually collecting much of the dust and allergens that float around in the air. As the months pass, these allergy-inducing particles can build-up in the carpet fibers. If allowed to accumulate, these particles will become airborne again whenever someone walks across the carpet, this is the main reason why in these cases you would need to call in the killeen carpet cleaning company”. Only a thorough cleaning can remove these allergens to restore a healthy living environment. Plus, if allergies are chronic, frequent cleanings are often necessary to help alleviate recurring symptoms.

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? Yes but its not easy, I suggest to contact commercial cleaners on trustdale.com; 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!

Hardwood Floor Cleaning

Cleaning wood floors can be be a difficult job if you don’t have the proper tools or cleaning solutions. There are a lot of products on the market and while some products may produce a shine today, they may cause a build up over time.
Our wood floor cleaning process aggressively scrubs the flooring to remove a build up of dirt and contaminants, leaving your floors clean and residue free.
Once the floor is cleaned a optional Hardwood Floor refinisher can be applied for a uniform satin or gloss sheen.

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.

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

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. We also work with a recycling system, one option is bin hire Sydney they offer the best waste management service in Sydney, can be trusted with the removal of wastes from your homes and offices, so we can manage the furniture you don’t use or want, we work with Be Equipment for the recycling machinery so we will take care of yours !
