Carpet Cleaning: Fruit Punch Removal in Wesley Chapel, Valrico, Brandon and Palm Harbor Florida

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

While I was Cleaning Carpet today I came across a home that had fruit punch stains all over the carpet. Unfortunately cleaning the carpets alone did not remove the stains.

After explaining to the client why the cleaning alone did not remove the dye stain I reccomended a product called RedZone.

After I dried the area that I cleaned, I applied part A of the cleaning solution and then equal parts of part B. I used an iron with low heat over a wet cotton towel to help accelerate the chemical which took the red right out of the stain.

The customer was amazed and very thankful since she felt the landlord would  return her $1900.00 deposit.

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

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.

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.

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.
