Carpet Cleaning: Can I get rid of fleas by cleaning my carpet?

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Will cleaning my carpet get rid of the fleas? Running a carpet cleaning business for over 20 years, I get this question asked a lot and the answer is usually no.

When dealing with a flea infestation, we recommend having a pest exterminator determine the best treatment for killing flees.

Once the fleas are killed than a professional carpet steam cleaning would help remove the dead fleas and eggs. If you have other textiles in the home such as upholstery, drapes, and pet bedding a good upholstery cleaning is recommended as well.

Having your carpet and upholstery cleaned using a steam cleaning process will flush out any dirt, contaminants and dead fleas and remove them from your home.

Carpet Cleaning: How to Remove Dry Paint From Carpet

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

Spilling paint on carpet, especially when you have new carpet can be a very traumatic experience. Hiring a professional carpet cleaner may be an option, but if it is not, knowing the proper procedure and solutions to use can make that ugly spot on your carpet disappear.

Here is a list of items you will need:

  1. Spatula or large spoon.
  2. Wet Dry Vac.
  3. Terry Cloth Towels.
  4. Steam Iron.
  5. Solvent: Any paint oil grease removal product will work fine. Most hardware stores that sell paint will have this. I recommend Pro-Solve Gel and Power Gel by Pro’s Choice.
  6. Please be very careful when using a liquid form of a paint oil or grease removal product. This solution can cause the carpet backing to separate.

If the paint is still wet use this procedure:

  1. Apply Pro Solve Gel to spot. “Pro Solve can be substituted with a paint oil grease removal product”
  2. Gently agitate spot using the edge of spoon.
  3. Apply Power Gel and agitate gently.
  4. Thoroughly extract using Hot Water Extraction. ” A sprayer with hot water and a wet dry vac will work”

If the paint is dry use this procedure:

  1. Apply Pro Solve Gel to wet fibers.”Pro Solve can be substituted with a paint oil grease removal product”
  2. Agitate gently with soft brush or edge of spoon.
  3. Cover  paint stain with clean terry cloth towel.
  4. Apply steam heat form steam iron set at warm temperature for 15 to 30 seconds.
  5. Reapply Pro Solve Gel.
  6. Agitate gently
  7. Apply Power Gel to spot
  8. Gently agitate
  9. Thoroughly extract using hot water extraction. “sprayer with hot water and a wet dry vac will work”

Repeat steps 7 thru 9 if needed

Carpet Cleaning in Lutz, Florida

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.

Carpet Cleaning: How to Select a Professional Carpet Cleaning Firm

If your carpet still looks dirty and dingy after vacuuming then it may be time to have your carpets professionally deep cleaned. Hiring a cleaning firm can be difficult and costly if you don’t know what questions to ask.

When it’s time to hire a carpet cleaning company, asking these questions will help you choose a professional, experienced and reputable company.

  1. How long has your company been in business? This speaks volumes about a company’s experience and reputation.
  2. How long has the technician you plan on sending to my house been with the company? This will also tell you about the experience of the technician
  3. What kind of training or certifications do you provide your cleaning crews before they are allowed to enter customer’s homes? Most reputable companies will require their technicians to obtain certifications.
  4. Do you vacuum the carpet before you clean? Most soil in carpet is insoluble which means water or solvents can’t break them down. The best way to remove this type of soiling is by dry vacuuming
  5. Do you Pre- spray the carpet before you clean? This helps break down the high traffic areas and spots before they clean the carpets.
  6. Does your cleaning process include spotting for any stubborn stains? If this is not included they may charge additional fees for this service.
  7. How long will it take my carpets to dry? This is important because most professional cleaning should only take 6- 8 hours to dry.

By asking these important questions you will be able to tell what kind of experience and reputation the company has and what type of cleaning you can expect. If the company employs these steps in the cleaning process you can expect to have a very clean carpet without any surprises.

Homemade Pet Odor Removal

The best homemade pet odor removal is prevention through good cleaning practices. However, there are some natural homemade pet odor removal procedure when necessary.

Hydrogen Peroxide is one of the best homemade pet odor removal solutions. Depending on the surface or material that you are cleaning, you can use the standard 3% peroxide solution as your new homemade pet odor removal. Or if you are moping a floor, you may want to consider using 1 cup a high mix (35%) with 1 gallon of hot water.

Using H2o2 as a homemade pet odor removal is a great choice because of its disinfectant, anti-bacterial, anti-mold and anti-mildew properties. Secondly, it’s a homemade pet odor removal solution that is non-toxic to people, plants and of course, household pets.

Other common household products that can be used as a homemade pet odor removal solution is dishwashing detergent and vinegar. You can mix a quart of water with several drops of detergent and a couple tablespoons of vinegar to make this nifty homemade pet odor removal mixture.

Apply your new homemade pet odor removal mixture to fresh pet stains. If the pet stain has already dried out, you may be too late.

A third homemade pet odor removal is Borax. Sometimes it will clean a soiled area well, but the best property of this homemade pet odor removal is its ability to remove unpleasant odors.

As always, if your homemade pet odor removal solutions don’t quite do the job, you can always call the pros at National Carpet Cleaning Specialists.

Carpet Cleaning Tampa: What are those black lines around my baseboards?

Friday, October 30th, 2009

Many customers that I have cleaned, have pointed out that the previous cleaner could not remove those black lines around the baseboards and under closed doors? These black lines are between a quarter of an inch to half inch in width and travel down the length on the wall.

This type of soiling is called Soil filtration. Its the airflow contaminants that are trying to pass through a door or the crack in the wall. This contamination is similar to what you find in your air conditioning filter.

As the air passes through the edge of the carpet pile, the microscopic  soiling is deposited there, (hence the term filtration soiling). This build up occurs over a extended period of time and is not noticed until a build up has occurred.

This type of soiling is very 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.

Removing this type of soiling is very difficult and requires special cleaning agents to assist in the process.

To help prevent soil filtration, vacuum and wipe the edges of the carpet on a regular basis.
