Caring for Your Home’s Carpet
Regular vacuuming is perhaps the easiest and most dependable method for prolonging the life of your carpet.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when you’re vacuuming at home or shopping for a new vacuum:
- Choose a vacuum cleaner with dual motors, one for suction and the other for the beater bar that loosens dirt. Canister vacuums and ‘electric brooms’ don’t have a beater bar.
- Make sure your vacuum cleaner has adjustable and rotating brushes that can loosen ground-in soil, and a strong enough airflow to penetrate to the backing.
- Make sure the filtration bag is enclosed and adequately limits particles from recirculating into the air.
Carpet Cleaning Emergencies
If you have a cleaning emergency such as pest waste, vomit or a nasty spill, just give us a call! We can talk you through many situations and follow up with Raleigh carpet cleaning services as soon as possible. If you can not reach us immediately consider the following steps as applicable.
Cleaning Pet Waste or Vomit Out of Carpet
These are the number one causes for an emergency situation. Try the following on synthetic carpet, area rug or wool rug.
- Blot up all you can (do not rub it in!).
- Liberally apply WHITE vinegar.
- Blot up all you can (again, do not rub).
- Apply 3/4-1 inch covering of table salt over the area to an inch past the effected area.
- Let stand for 24-48 hours until salt is completely dry.
- Remove salt with a shop vac or spatula.
- Give the area a final, thorough vacuuming with a normal vacuum.
