There are many ways of removing dirt and stains from your carpet, but the key is to find a method that works best for you. For many homeowners, cleaning carpets can be a tedious task. But by following some simple steps, carpet cleaning can be made easier and faster. One important thing to remember is proper maintenance makes cleaning your carpet easier.
Proper maintenance simply refers to vacuuming your carpet at least once a week. This will prevent any type of buildup of dirt and stains which would most likely become harder to take off once they stay there for some time. If you clean your carpet regularly then you do not have to rely on intensive and intrusive cleaning methods, which may eventually damage the condition of your carpet.
Should You Use Plain Soap and Water in Cleaning Carpets?
The answer is no. Plain soap and water are not enough to deeply clean the carpet. Using these ingredients in cleaning is a waste of time as they are unable to remove stains, muck,and odour that have been building up for a long time.
The two main products that are effective for carpet cleaning are carpet powder and carpet shampoo. Each type of product offers advantages and disadvantages. If you do not have a lot of time, carpet powder is a quicker fix when it comes to removing dirt and stain. This is because carpet shampoo requires several hours to dry. If you’re using a powder cleaning product, you usually only need to spread the powder and let it sit on the carpet surface for at least half an hour. The cleaning agent then goes to work during this period and all you need to do is wait. After you allow the product to absorb the odour and soften the stains, you just have to vacuum up the powder along with the dirt.
Carpet Shampoo products are a bit more complicated to use, but it’s not that hard once you get used to it. Most products instruct you to dilute the shampoo with a prescribed amount of water. You need to be careful not to make the carpet too wet as it will only increase the waiting time for it to dry. After applying the shampoo on the surface, you typically need to scrub the stubborn stains with a hard-bristled brush. After it dries, you can then vacuum the carpet as a finishing touch.
Whichever cleaning product you decide to use, the most important thing is that you always read the label and follow instructions carefully. One mistake can cause more problems.
Here's what they say about Tropical Carpet and Tile Cleaning
"I had them come over to my house to get a deep clean before family came into town for the holidays and it looks amazing. They really do a great job. They clean in all the little cracks and seals that most over look. Very friendly and easy to schedule an appointment. I never thought a house could get this clean and the windows were almost too clean because I nearly walked through the sliding door a couple times. If you have animals I would recommend you have them clean because they seriously deep clean the house and you would probably would not know that you have animals.
Julio and Maria were great and worked with my schedule with getting an estimate and scheduling it right away. I will be calling them from now on for all my house cleaning needs."
Our family just bought 10 year old home in Sparks and we called Topical Carpet and Tile Cleaning to clean the carpets and the house prior to us moving in. We had some concerns about the carpet since it was 10 years old and had an odd crunching sound when it was walked on. My wife and I greatly appreciated Julio's honesty when he evaluated our carpets. He told us that they were old, not high quality, the crunch wouldn't go away completely with cleaning, and would probably only last another year or two anyways. He very easily could have just quoted us the carpet cleaning and we never would have known better. Based on his evaluation, we decided to replace the carpets, but we'll absolutely use them for cleaning in the future.
For the house cleaning, Maria quoted a very reasonable price to clean just about everything in the house prior to us moving in. Her crew cleaned all of the cabinets, drawers, drawer rails, knobs, sinks, toilets, showers, floors, inside windows, window tracks, blinds, light fixtures, and I'm sure other things I can't think of right now. They did an excellent job and we couldn't be happier with the results.
