Picking the Best Upholstery Cleaner
Just as many people don't give much thought to carpet cleaning or drapery cleaning, they also don't think much about upholstery cleaning.
What is upholstery cleaning? Well, upholstery cleaning is where you or a professional upholstery cleaning company uses some form of cleaning solvent to clean the entire piece of upholstered furniture.
Upholstered furniture is very decorative. The assorted fabrics and patterns can add color and enhance any room. However you would be amazed at how much use and abuse that favorite armchair or reclining sofa can get when used on a daily basis. If you have pets, and even if you don't allow them to sleep on the sofa, they will jump up on someone's legs. Their lovely dirty paws will slide on to the upholstery and bingo; you have dirt accumulating on that sofa. Then the children will be watching television and also eating cookies and drinking milk. Well, what happens when they spill that milk or brush the cookies off onto the sofa? More ground in dirt. Then after a few months more dirt accumulates and the entire surface of the sofa has a dull sheen to it. That is when you need to consider having that upholstered sofa cleaned.
If you choose to do it yourself, you will need to test the fabric to make sure the solution you are using will not cause the fabric to run. That would make your upholstery cleaning very expensive. After you do that you will need to vacuum your furniture. Then you will have to spot clean or pre-clean the very bad stains. Don't let this sit too long. Wipe it off fairly quickly. Finally you will use a fabric cleaner and clean the furniture according to the directions. Next let it dry thoroughly. You now have clean upholstered furniture.
Different Methods of Cleaning Carpets and Rugs
There are a lot of reasons why people love putting carpets in their homes an even in offices. However, there are also a lot of disadvantages to it. One of which is when it comes to cleaning.
Carpets provide a really good accent to a room. It makes the room look and feel cozy. But when mishandled, a carpet can also destroy the beauty of everything. Just imagine seeing everything in order except for the filthy carpet that you are stepping on.
This is why carpet maintenance is really important. It is best that carpeted floors be cleaned regularly and thoroughly. If there are mishaps which cause the carpet to be stained, this should be addressed immediately.
Carpet stain remover
If the stains are too stubborn for the detergent or vinegar solution, you can use a carpet stain remover. There are now several products in the market. Make sure that it is specifically meant for carpets and check if there are any strong ingredients. Avoid using strong cleansing products like bleach which can cause damage to the carpet while removing the old stain.
Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning
Carpet protectant is extremely important for your carpet, but when talking with most people, I find out that they don't know exactly what it is or what it does. In my years of cleaning, I've met people with almost brand new carpet ask to have carpet protectant applied, and I've also met people who need their carpets cleaned every six months (*raises his hand*) who don't think they have a need for carpet protectant. Both cases were wrong.
Carpet protectant has many names, most of which are brands that you may or may not have heard of. 3M's Scotchgard, DuPont's Teflon, or what ever other name used, normally have the word "protectant" in the name by other manufactures. They all do pretty much the same thing, repel water and resist soiling. Protectant has some great benefits when used as it is designed.
Why every 2 years when new carpet can last up to 5 years or beyond? Think of it as a booster, not the full treatment. The carpet manufacturer is capable of treating the fibers specifically, but carpet cleaning specialists can only topically treat the whole carpet.
