The 7 Insider Secrets To Keeping Your Carpets Looking Perfect This Christmas And New Year

 1. Coloured Patch On The Carpet!

This is one of the most common problems I get asked to deal with every year!  It’s normally caused by crepe paper or wrapping paper that is used to decorate the base of the tree or from presents at the base of the tree.  As the Royal Forestry Society recommend to keep watering natural trees to keep them green and help to reduce the rate they drop their needles, this means sometimes a little water is spilt on the paper and it releases the dye from the paper onto the carpet. This will usually result in what we call a permanent dye transfer – as more often than not the dye from the paper will have changed to colour of the carpet for good. So to stop this from happening - simply ensure that the tree is placed on a plastic tray, and then place this on a plastic sheet large enough to allow for all your presents too.   If you feel the plastic is too ugly and may not be hidden by the presents try placing an off cut of carpet over the plastic sheet (this also stops the problem of finding needles six month later!)

 

2. Relatives Spilling Drinks!

If Uncle Tom accidentally spills his drink on to the carpet, as with any drink spill the last thing you want to do is say ‘OH Don’t worry I’ll sort it out later’ just so you don’t make Uncle feel awful! If you do leave it till later it could be a problem to remove. Deal with it there and then, grab some kitchen towel and absorb the spillage into the towel. 

Always blot - don’t rub as rubbing could damage the fibres. You may need a detergent solution (a little water in bowl with just a few drops of washing-up liquid in it) – apply to area with clean cloth and tamper in (pat with brush).  Next with a little fresh water in a hand sprayer, spray onto the area - just rinse and blot dry with kitchen towel.  

 

3. Do You Find Chocolate Finger Prints?

Children of ‘all-ages’ love chocolate – and no Christmas would be the same without too much of it.  Nevertheless, chocolate can be tricky to get out – so try to use smaller sweets with individual wrappers on them – anything to stop hot fingers from becoming in contact with the chocolate.   

If you do find a chocolate stain scrape off a much as you can with a blunt knife. Use a detergent solution, starting at the outer edge and tamper with a small brush (by raising it and letting it fall under it's own weight) and blotting dry.  If the stain is still there repeat then flush with fresh water and blot dry.  Should the stain still be visible follow with Ammonia solution (a tablespoon of household ammonia solution to a cup of water).  Tamper into stain, rinse and blot dry.

 

4. Christmas Dinner Still In The Carpet?

Christmas dinner is probably the biggest and most important meal of the year.  Often it’s shared with more friends and relatives around the one table then you’ve seen all year – so there’s bound to be a few little accidents.  

Always carry food to the table on trays and if you have young children try protecting the carpet under the table by laying something over it first.  Again a plastic sheet, or an off cut of carpet will help to protect the carpet so you can enjoy the meal – whatever the little darlings may throw on it.  

Should something be trodden into the carpet then you will need to scrape up the majority using something like a blunt knife, be careful not to damage the pile by scrapping too hard. Use a detergent solution to apply over area using a damp towel blot the area until nothing more is transferred to the cloth. 

If the food contains some form of oil like brandy butter, cream - even gravy you may find the stain is still noticeable - so follow with an Ammonia solution (a tablespoon of household ammonia solution to a cup of water).  Tamper into stain, rinse and blot dry.

 

5. Dirty Patches On The Upholstery!

Christmas usually sees festive trays of nuts and crisps in bowls placed in various places. And dare I say it? The patches are often from those hands that seem to wipe themselves clean on the side of furniture after tackling a bowl of nuts or crisps! 

Well the oil residues from these delights will soon attract soils onto the fabrics.  Its amazing just how much residue can be found and what a difference it can make in re-soiling your carpets and upholstery.  

You can try to offer more ‘dry’ alternative to regular salted peanuts.   And apart from giving your guest a ‘wet-wipe’ every time they eat something – the only alternative is to use a clean, damp, lint free cloth (like a terry towel) and wipe the arms, seats and sides of your upholstery after your guests have gone.  

 

6. We Didn’t Like To Say No To Smokers!

What about those who smoke?  When it’s not possible to stop everyone smoking in the house you have two problems.  Firstly, the mess from the cigarette – the ash or even burns. Secondly, the smoke! Obviously when you have a house full you won’t be able to have your eyes everywhere, so make sure you have enough ashtrays around which will encourage everyone to use them.  If you do get a burn in the carpet it’s not the end of the world – we can ‘re-tuft’ most makes of carpet and leave you with an invisible repair.    For the smoke – it goes without saying to have all the rooms well ventilated.  

There are two natural ways to help attack smells like smoke.   The first is bowls of water – the second is burning candles.  Or put them together and have - bowls of scented floating candles!  

Candles are great in the kitchen to help remove cooking odours too.   If you do use candles I recommended you are very careful not to spill the liquid wax and never leave lighted candles unattended   

 

7.  Candle Wax In The Carpet Fibres!

During darker nights and festive fun we use more candlelight. Whilst the candles can be therapeutic, romantic, cosy and even sweet smelling they can also be a nightmare when the molten liquid falls to the floor and embeds itself into your carpet.

One way to remove wax from the carpet is to break up the hardened surface with a blunt instrument obviously being careful not to damage the fibres and remove loose pieces, next your going to need some brown paper and an iron. Lay the brown paper over the wax and as you apply the tip end of a warm iron to the area start to drag the paper out with your other hand.  This will soak up the warmed wax as you go.  Keep repeating this until the wax is gone. Remember that some fabrics will melt under a HOT iron so test in an inconspicuous area first. There may be a little residue left, which will need attention using a solvent such as nail varnish remover on a cotton pad to blot it off.

Cleaning Leather Upholstery In Five Easy Steps

Homeowners invest a lot to ensure that their homes will look good. They invest in furniture to complete the comfortable feel of their homes. In order for the furniture to last long, it is important to give it the proper cleaning and maintenance it deserves.

Upholstered furniture is among our favourite. This is because we can choose the different colours we want that will go well with our interior. This makes it essential to learn how to clean upholstery. Keeping the furniture clean will help increase its life. In addition, you will be safe from dust and other forms of dirt from the furniture.

Cleaning your upholstery is not that difficult. Here are some tips to help you out:

1.Vacuum it as often as you vacuum your carpet. This will prevent the dust from setting deeper in the upholstery. It will make your monthly deep cleaning routine easier as well.

2.Remove all removable cushions when cleaning. See to it that you vacuum all its side, from the back to the front, and under the cushion. You can use a handheld brush with gentle ends to loosen the dirt from within. Vacuum it right away so that the dirt would not spread.

3.Clean spills and visible dirt immediately. Do not wait for the liquid spills to dry. Just like in carpets, blot as much of the liquid as you can. The longer the spill stays on your upholstery, the more difficult it is to clean. The moisture from the liquid can also damage the fabrics that is why blotting as much of the liquid off is ideal.

4.Test commercial upholstery cleaner before using it on the furniture. Keep in mind that cleaners contain harsh chemicals. Test them first in the unnoticeable portions of the upholstery. Observe if there is any discoloration or fading. Keep in mind that there are different types of materials; cleaning leather upholstery requires different cleaner compared with ordinary fabrics. If there is discoloration or fading, stop using the cleaner.

5.Always use soft clean cloth when removing the stain. This will ensure that you will not damage your upholstery. You can also be sure that you are not transferring more dirt to the upholstery than you are removing it.

You do not have to do thorough cleaning on your upholstery every day. Just vacuum it at least twice a week and schedule a deep cleaning once in every two months. Just make sure that you remove the stain as soon as you see it. This will make it easier.

Cleaning your upholstery is not as difficult as it may seem. Just see to it that you have the right cleaner and the basic knowledge to deal with the furniture.

Useful information when investing in a rug

There are a few basics you should know about rugs. Once you understand how to identify what makes a rug valuable, you’ll have a greater chance at purchasing a better rug.

Rug fibers usually consist of wool in most mid to upper end rugs. High-end rugs may also have silk. Synthetic fibers such as acrylic, polyester, nylon, and olefin (polypropylene) can be found in more economical rugs. Cotton, sea grass, and sisal rugs are often moderate rugs. Your most stain resistant rugs will contain synthetic fibers, but won’t feel as soft and luxurious. All other natural fiber rugs are susceptible to staining if spots aren’t cleaned immediately.What do you look for in a rug? Quality of wool, type of dye, and knots. Simply because a rug is expensive, doesn’t mean it has good dyes or is constructed well. Make sure you know what it is and shop around first. Above all, be extra cautious about purchasing a rug outside the United States.The quality of a wool fiber depends largely on the type of dye used. Fine wool is vegetable dyed with fruits, roots, and plants. Cheaper wools and nylons can be dyed with synthetic dyes.

A rug should always be tested for colourfastness by taking a damp white cloth and gently rubbing it into the fiber. If any color transfers on the cloth, the dyes are unstable. Also look closely at the fiber to check the integrity. Make sure it isn’t unraveling. Very fine wool fibers can often look as soft as silk even to an experienced rug professional.The construction of a rug is also a key factor. To determine if the rug is handmade, turn it upside down and look at the back. If you cannot see the pattern as clearly as on the face, the rug is not handmade. If the rug passes this first test, look at the fringe. The fringe should be an extension of the yarn inside the rug and should not look like it was sewed on separately. Many rugs that claim to be hand stitched are stitched by hand with a machine. You can expect to pay at least £250 for a small 3×4 hand made rug.

 BEWARE of rugs with cloth backings. These rugs have something to hide. The cloth is covering either flaws in a handmade rug or even worse, glue that is holding the backing together. Glued backings have a tendency to get torn when the rug is moved or cleaned. If you are looking for an alternative to a handmade rug, you might look at a Karastan. These wool rugs closely resemble hand made rugs, are cheaper in price, and rarely have the problems associated with cheaper wool rugs. If you aren’t ready to invest several thousand pounds in a rug, these will be your best bet. Ask the right questions. Educate yourself. Good luck in finding your perfect rug.

Knowledge will save you money! Cowboys will steal your money!

Professional cleaning of a carpet on a regular basis will extend its life expectancy considerably, in addition to keeping it hygienic and looking good. Not cleaning the carpet correctly, or even not cleaning it at all, will reduce its life expectancy significantly.

Unqualified cleaners may use unsuitable cleaning procedures, and detergent residue may be left within the carpet fibres. This detergent residue will act as a magnet for any dirt, resulting in your carpet getting dirtier quicker than it ever was before it was cleaned.

Provided that suitable cleaning methods are used, this problem will not occur. Fully trained members of the National Carpet Cleaners Association will normally clean a carpet using an appropriate detergent and follow this with a rinse to make sure that no residues remain. This procedure will guarantee that your carpet does not turn into a dirt magnet afterwards.

We at Clean It are fully trained members of the National Carpet Cleaners Association ( NCCA ) and have been member for the last 4 years. Your carpets are save in our hands!...

THE COMPANY THAT OFFERS THE LOWEST PRICE IS THE COMPANY YOU SHOULD HIRE?

Price is important, but never should be the only basis for deciding who to hire! Here are two important points to consider.

Point 1: The price you see offered may not be for the services you want performed. Before you select a company, decide what you want to accomplish. If you want the technician to remove only some of the dirt, you can choose from hundreds of companies that offer low price, poor equipment and limited knowledge.
On the other hand, if you want your carpet thoroughly cleaned – if you want to remove the harmful dirt, bacteria, pollens, chemicals and tobacco residues – then you need to hire a company that uses a hot water extractor mounted in a van. This is the only way to assure that your carpet remains healthy and free from dirt, disease-causing bacteria, and harmful chemicals.
So, remember, the price you see offered may not be for the services you want performed.

CLEAN IS NOT AN EXACT SCIENCE, BUT RATHER, UP TO THE INTERPRETATION OF EACH PERSON.

Point#2: The price you see advertised may not be the price you pay!

Many homeowners have learned that the low price they saw advertised was not the amount they were charged.

BAIT AND SWITCH is the term used to identify those who use fraudulent advertising, just to get their foot in the door. You probably know someone who has learned the hard way. Some carpet cleaner offered a cheap price – usually between £10 and £15 per room – and then pressured them into paying a lot more. This amounts to breaking the law.
As in all businesses and professions, the carpet cleaning industry has its share of bad apples. I take no pleasure in telling you this, but some are unethical and, sadly, a few are dishonest. By their misleading advertising and false promises, they cast a dark shadow on our entire industry.
Then you’ll find other carpet cleaners, professionals like me, who work hard to earn your trust and respect.
As a way of improving our profession, I’ve dedicated my business to educating the public. The only way you can make an intelligent decision is to have all the facts you need. This is why I’ve written this message.

In addition to being one of the best TEXTILE CLEANING TECHNICIANS in North Wales and the North West, I have exhausted every technical course available to achieve the most prestigious designation in our industry. Therefore, in addition to cleaning carpet, I am happy to provide for my clients a wealth of information when choosing to buy new carpet.

Mistakes People Make When They are Cleaning uPVC Windows And Doors.

Mistakes can be made when cleaning your uPVC windows and doors that can range from the slightly annoying to very costly. This article hopes to help you to avoid these errors and help keep your windows gleaming and in good repair.

Cleaning uPVC windows and doors is not a particularly difficult task. uPVC is a durable product which has a pretty good lifespan if it is cared for at reasonably intervals and it has to be said that uPVC doors and windows require considerably less maintenance than say, their timber counterparts. However people are prone to making some mistakes when cleaning their uPVC windows and doors and these mistake can be costly. In this article I will discuss with you the most common mistakes that experts come across with regard to the cleaning of uPVC doors and windows.

1. Using the wrong cleaning agents on their uPVC doors and windows..

It is important when cleaning uPVC windows and doors not to use products that may damage the uPVC. Non-abrasive and non-corrosive cleaning products are the most suitable and one tip that some experts recommend is a soft wet cloth such as a baby wipe. uPVC can scratch easily and even using a dry hard cloth can cause surface marks on the frame. Use warm water and soap to give your frames a soft clean ad they will look well for many years.

2. Attempting to paint uPVC Doors and windows.

uPVC has come a long way with respect to the choice of colors that are now available. Not too long ago, white was the color of most uPVC windows and doors. Now they are available in many colors and even with wood grain effect. It should be possible to select a color for your windows that you do not tire of over the course of its lifetime. This is important because you cannot paint over uPVC as a product and therefore whatever colour that you do choose will have to be the color that the windows and doors remain until you choose to change them.

3. Scratching uPVC door and window frames.

As has been already mentioned uPVC is a hard wearing material, but it does scratch and can be marked easily by a sharp object. If this were to happen with a timber window, you could simply fill and sand the damaged area and repaint. However with uPVC this is not an option and so repairing a scratch can be difficult. Smaller damage can be removed or disguised by using special uPVC repairer, but the large the damaged area, the more difficult it is to carry out a good repair job. One tip is to remove items of jewelry before carrying out any repair or maintenance work on your uPVC windows.

4. Not carrying out regular maintenance on the moving parts of the frames.

uPVC windows and doors do benefit from regular inspection and lubrication of moving parts in the framework. Any metal parts will operate better if they are lubricated and a mild lubricant followed by an application of light grease will help the metal parts in your windows to be weather resistant. Regular inspection will also help bring attention to any loose parts that may need to be tightened or replaced. Some people perhaps consider uPVC windows and doors to be absolutely maintenance free. While they need less maintenance than other types of doors and windows, it certainly does help to keep and eye on their condition.

So when it comes to cleaning upvc windows and doors, do not over look regular maintenance, avoid harsh cleaning products and do not paint your uPVC windows and doors they should reward you by being fairly trouble free for the duration of the time that you have them in your home.

Ceramic tile and grout cleaning.

One of the main reasons so many homeowners choose ceramic tile over other surface materials is because of its durability, low maintenance, and tile is very easy to clean. Tile is clearly easier to maintain than natural stone, granite, or marble tiles. Below we outline some of the dos and donts for maintaining ceramic tile like new for years to come.

Easy cleaning Dos:

  •  You should clean your tile with a damp sponge (for a shower) or sponge mop (for a floor), using a small amount of soapless detergent in warm water.
  •  If you use a cleaner, make sure it's neutral - non-acidic and non-alkaline. Where dirt is more concentrated, use a cleaner made specifically for ceramic tile.
  •  Vacuum glazed floor tiles regularly to remove dirt and other gritty particles, then damp mop or sponge with an all-purpose, non oil-based cleaner.

 

Easy cleaning Donts:

  •  You should not use soap on tile. It leaves a film which dulls the surface and promotes mildew.

 

  •  You should not use an acid or ammonia-based cleaner, because it could affect the color of the grout.

 

  •  You should not use steel wool pads or any abrasive on tile or stone. These materials can scratch or dull the surface. Any loose particles of steel left on the grout will cause rust stains.

 

Grout cleaning tips

While there are many ideas and theories on the best way to clean grout, many experts hold the opinion that the best way to maintain the long lasting color and properties of your grout is to use the specialty based cleaners made specifically for this purpose. Ceramic tile experts agree that the absolute best way to clean grout is to apply the specialty cleaner and then vacuum ("shop vac") up the dirty water or solution.

This lifts the dirt off the joint and doesnt spread any dirty water or solution over the grout if one were to simply wipe it up with a dry cloth. Follow by applying rinse water and vacuum that water up as well. This lifts off any remaining solution that still may be on the ceramic tile and/or grout.

 

Be careful who you choose to clean your carpets.

Springtime is a time when most people give their homes a thorough cleaning. If you plan to clean your carpet this season, you may want to give careful thought to who will be doing the job. Is it a do-it-yourself project or is it best left to a professional?

If you are seeking a professional carpet cleaning service, be sure to do your homework. With so many choices and advertised prices that run the gamut, you want to be sure you are getting your money’s worth.

  • To find a reputable company, ask around. Ask your family, friends and neighbors who they use to clean their carpets and who they would recommend to others.
  • Price does matter. The lowest price is not always the best price. While no one wants to be overcharged, extremely low prices should also set off warning signals. Companies that advertise very low prices may be practicing what is called “bait” advertising. Once the workers arrive in your home, they quickly suggest a more expensive treatment for the cleaning. Ask exactly what is included in the price and be sure to get it in writing before the crew begins any work.
  • Find out what you get for your money. Just as pricing can differ from company to company, so can the services included in the price and what the company considers “extras.” What type of cleaning agent does the company use and exactly how does it work? Will the cleaning company move furniture and return it to its original location? If so, is there an extra charge for this service? What about pre-treating spots and heavily soiled areas? Are there extra charges for high traffic areas? What if you are not happy with the cleaning? Is your satisfaction guaranteed?
  • Inquire about the company’s employees. After all, these are the people who will be coming into your home. Find out if the company uses its own employees or do they sub-contract the job out to other companies? Are they bonded and insured? Who is responsible if the crew damages the carpet or other items in your home?
  • Find out what care is required after the cleaning. How long will it take to dry? What kind of ventilation is needed? Can you get a written guarantee?

Facebook works for Clean It carpet cleaners!

Currently Facebook boasts somewhere in excess of 400 million users and growing. You’ve probably heard this line by now, but If it were a country it would be the third largest in the world behind China and India only. There’s a pretty good bet that some members of your ideal target customer reside in and visit Facebook land, but the trick is to find them, its not hard!

My name is Dan the owner of Clean It carpet, upholstery and leather cleaners in North Wales, UK. I have been using Facebook for 4 years, at first I was only using it as a personal profile to keep intouch with all my friends all over the world, then I realised how it started working for my carpet cleaning business as people living locally to myself started to find out what I do. I developed a Facebook group for people that I had done work for and fans to join and since I was into business networking with local businesses they started to join my group aswell. After a while I was getting enquiries for carpet cleaning and it was working quite good.  Other local businesses started doing their own groups and we where adding each other.

Last year I started my own Facebook fan page,, similar to a Facebook group but more straight forward and less ” in your face “.  One of the great things about a Facebook fan page is I can add the link from my Facebook fan page to my website which takes people straight through from my website to my Facebook fan page and if they are on Facebook they add my Facebook fan page, which keeps them in contact with me, so they can hear about any special offers or news updates that I have which in the long run gets me more work!  Currently I get 1 to 2 enquiries a week off Facebook and I have not even tried using the paid for advertising that they offer.  I think I will try that this evening and I will keep you posted.

The only disadvantage is, Facebook takes alot of your time but if you enjoy doing it and you can keep intouch with your customers and friends at the same time its ACE!

Professional carpet cleaning is Worth Every Penny

 

Choosing a Carpet Cleaning Service

Eventually everyone is in need of a professional carpet cleaning service. Even if you stain guard your carpet after installation, regularly vacuum and remove spots as they appear, your carpet will need an annual deep clean. While you can steam clean yourself, it can be an arduous task and, more importantly, it can be ineffective and even unsafe if done improperly. So with the regularity offered to window washing and gutter cleaning, it is always a good idea to call in a professional cleaning service to deep clean your carpets.

Dangers of a Bad Steam Clean
When hiring a carpet cleaning service, or deciding whether you should do it yourself, it is always good to know the downside. This can include ruined padding or flooring, mold problems, and stained carpets. Proper drying is tricky, and professional carpet cleaning companies use industrial fans to dry carpets. These can be expensive to rent if you are doing it yourself. If you do not have access to this kind of equipment, be sure you have a good alternative or you will end up with mold problems that far exceed stained and dirty carpets. Mold and damage aside, the real danger in steam cleaning yourself, or hiring a sub-par company, is that some of the chemicals used in steam cleaning are hazardous to your lungs, can irritate skin and cause asthmatic reactions. Carpet cleaning service professionals wear masks, gloves, and, when using particular chemical products, ask residents to stay out of the house that night. This means that if you choose to do it yourself, do your research with extreme care.

Choosing a Carpet Cleaning Professional
More often than not it is the right move to hire a professional. A carpet cleaning company should be able to readily tell you what chemicals they use and what the dangers and benefits are of each. Do not choose a company that quotes you over the phone, or by the room rather than square foot, rather than coming to give you an estimate after inspecting your home. Different methods and chemicals should be used for different problems. Similarly, be wary of companies that solicit by canvassing your neighborhood. Like anything else, it is important to obtain recommendations rather than call the first name you see in the phone book, but if you do not have such recommendations, always ask for references. This can save you a lot of pain and headache in the long run. Finally, in pricing, be sure to ask whether the service includes moving your furniture for you.

For many reasons, a professional carpet cleaning company is a good investment. A deep clean lengthens the life of your carpets, makes your home healthier, and keeps you from taking on a task that is often more involved than most do it yourself projects. While regular vacuuming and cleaning will work for day to day and week to week home cleaning, it is a good idea to schedule a regular professional cleaning. Many people do this once a year, in the spring, summer or fall when windows and doors can be opened do help the drying process. If you do this, you will find that you extend the life of your carpet and make your home a more enjoyable, beautiful place.
