How to deal with inevitable spills on your carpet…

6 Feb

We’ve all had it happen~

Whether it’s a dropped plate on the way to the dinner table, orange juice spilled at breakfast, those red wine spots from last nights impromptu gathering… accidents do happen, so try not to get too upset. Follow these guidelines, and you have a better chance of getting your carpets looking good again.

Act Immediately!  Today, most carpet available has been treated with a stain-resist treatment.  Many spills can be removed or considerably reduced if immediate action is taken. The longer the delay, the higher the probability of a spill becoming a permanent stain. Remember, staining is influenced by many factors, and no carpet is completely stain proof.

Dab liquids with a dry, white, absorbent cloth or white (no printing) paper towels. It’s important not to use printed or dyed towels for this, especially if you’ve got lighter coloured carpets~ transfer does happen! White terry cloth or microfibre towels are great to have on hand for this purpose.

Blot – Don’t Scrub the area! Scrubbing can cause pile distortion. Continue to use a white cloth or paper towels until the area is completely dry. For semi-solids, gently scrape up with a spoon. Break up and vacuum solids away.

Googling stain treatments can be tempting, but remember that a carpet is a big investment~ in order to keep it looking great for longer, sometimes you just have to call a professional. Some home remedies and ‘tricks’ can actually set the spot, turning it into a permanent stain that can be expensive, or worse still, impossible to remove. Find a reputable Carpet Cleaner in your local area, and ask them for a free, no obligation quote.

Healthier, cleaner Auckland carpets…

Puppy on a clean carpet

Carpets add warmth and comfort to your home, but if they aren’t cared for correctly, they can also add bacteria, mildew and bugs! But there is an easy way to make sure your carpets stay healthy, clean and safe for your family:

  • Have a Professional Carpet Cleaning company clean them for you every 6-8 months~ remembering to look for a company that offers family- and environmentally- safe products, quick drying times, and built in anti microbial protection.
  • Have the carpets protected~ this shouldn’t be too costly, it makes your carpets easier to clean, and can significantly reduce the wear and tear on your carpet.
  • Don’t wait too long if you have a leak or minor flood disaster~ the longer your carpets stay wet, the higher the chances of mould and mildew spores multiplying in your carpets, aggravating allergies, asthma, and damaging prized posessions.
  • If you have pets in your home, keep their flea treatments up to date~ with some of the better treatments, fleas start to die within 3 minutes of application, meaning they are unable to lay eggs in your carpets. Left untreated, fleas can multiply at an alarming rate.

Carpet cleaning for a healthier home…

6 Sep

For a lot of Auckland locals, our Tenancy Agreement states that we must have the carpets cleaned by a professional Auckland carpet cleaner when we vacate the property… and that is the first time we even consider cleaning our carpets.

But did you know that cleaning your carpets can give you a healthier home? It’s true! Choosing the right Carpet Cleaning company in Auckland can allow you the benefits of a healthier home, whilst you’re still living in it. How? Well, the answer to that is threefold:

If your carpet cleaning technician uses a built-in anti-microbial treatment… nasty spores and bacteria are history!

If the method of carpet cleaning is quick drying… there is no chance for mould and mildew to breed in your carpets.

If the Carpet Cleaning company you choose uses safer, environmentally friendly products from a reputable “green” manufacturer… you don’t have nasty, toxic chemicals lurking in the carpets you live on.

Mr Carpet Cleaner is proud to meet all these requirements… make sure the company you choose is, too.
