Grout cleaning Tampa: Removing sealer haze

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Sealer haze: Natural stone and grout surfaces can only hold a certain amount of sealer.

If excess sealer is left on the surface and it dries it could cause a smooth, silky white haze.

Sealer haze on the surface of tile and stone surfaces will wear off during normal foot traffic. Sealer haze on grout lines can be cleaned using a towel soaked with fresh sealer. This will dissolve the excess and can be wiped away.

In extreme conditions using a high ph tile and grout cleaner and a rotary scrubber can speed up the process of removal.

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. We know many reputable Melbourne cleaning services should anyone need to be pointed in the direction of good cleaning professionals.

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 Cleaning: Pet odor and Stain removal in Valrico and Brandon Florida

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Are you looking for a Professional Carpet Cleaner ,  pet odor and stain removal in the Valrico and Riverview area call 813-435-1331

Today we were cleaning carpets in Valrico, Florida 33594 and came across carpet that was stained with pet urine. The Carpets had severe pet odor and pet stain contamination.

In order to remove pet odor and pet stains you must first remove the pet contamination from the carpet, carpet pad, and sub floor.

We were able to remove the odor from the carpet using a product called “OSR” which combines the power of natural oxygen with biological power of odor modification to destroy odorous materials without leaving strong artificial fragrances behind.

There are many choices you can use to treat pet odor and hiring an experienced cleaner can discuss these options with you.

Here is a brief description of the primary odor control chemistries in use today:

1. Biological agents: often referred to and enzymes, eliminate odors by metabolizing (eating) the odorous material.

2. Pairing agents: eliminate odors by bonding to the odor molecule. Thereby altering the shape of the odorous molecule so the olfactory senses no longer recognize the odor.

3. Molecular encapsulation: utilizes multiple bonding mechanisms to pull the odorous molecule into the active molecule and thereby absorb the odor much like a sponge absorbing moisture.

4. Physical encapsulation: occurs when a film-forming agent engulfs the odorous substance and physically prevents the release of odor.

5. Molecular cleaving (oxidation): reactions that chemically change (break apart) the odorous molecule and combine with it to form different substances.

6. Odor modification: based on the zwaardemaker conjugates theory where two different odors will cancel each other out. In odor control, fragrances are formulated that cancel out the most common odors encountered such as urine, feces, and mold.

7. Emulsification: acid based products designed to dissolve urine salts and neutralize ammonia and suspend the contamination so it can be rinsed away.

8. Masking agents: simply provide a pleasant fragrance that mutes the malodor so as to make it more tolerable.

Water Extraction in Tampa, Florida 33625

Sunday, December 19th, 2010

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

visit us on the web: www.NationalClean.com

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.
