5 Great Reasons To Clean Your Carpet & Upholstery This Spring

Posted on Updated on

With the early onset of spring this year, dust and pollen will leave your home in desperate need of a seasonal overhaul. Spring cleaning may not be on your mind, but we have a few tips to help make cleaning a ~~~Breeze.

  1. Springing into Cleaning

Try to start in the smallest room or area and work your way through the rest of your home. This will not cause you any over exhaustion, especially by working through a little at a time. Before you know it, you’ve cleaned your home from top to bottom. Starting with organizing your paperwork to thoroughly cleaning your furnishings.

In no time, your home will look and smell Lemonny Freshh!!

  1. Keeping Those Allergens at Baycarpet_bacteria1

The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology states that Seasonal allergies
affect over 35 million people in the United States. Outdoor air pollutants are definitely carried into your home by you, your family or your friends. These air pollutants contain pollens, fungus, bacteria, air pollution, cigarette smoke, car exhaust and hundreds of other chemicals. These pollutants are carried in by you or family members and usually end up in the carpeting of your home.

 

One way to stop those grimy pollutants from coming into your home is to have everyone take their shoes off at the door. I know that it’s a pain to do, but you will be extending the life of your carpet.

Which is more important? Your family and friend’s feelings OR your investment, and your family’s health.

I like the second answer myself.

  1. People & Pets: Protecting Your Carpeting

The American Pet Products & Manufacturers Association also states that the United States is home to some 68 million dog owners and 73 million cat owners. That’s a lot of love—and a lot of carpet stains. Accidents on carpet require quick cleanup to remove bacteria and odor.

We are here to help with that!!

  1.  Keeping Your Indoor Environment Healthy

As much as 90 percent of our time is spent inside, especially during colder weather. So far, the Environmental Protection Agency estimates the air inside homes is 2-5 times more polluted than the outside air. Yuck!!!

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) recommends following these tips to help you to maintain a healthy indoor environment for you and your family:

  • Maintain a humidity level below 60 percent. Higher humidity creates an environment for mold growth and produces allergens.
  • Vacuum regularly. Your carpet and fabric furniture can hold dust and particle soil, mold spores and other harmful allergens.
  • Have your furniture cleaned professionally once a year by an IICRC-certified firm to ensure the use of proper extraction procedures, to make certain that soil is not just redistributed, but removed.
  1. To Keep Your Carpet Looking Its Best

Your carpet can last a very long time if it is properly maintained and cared for. The fact is…. That if you clean your carpets frequently, especially when traffic lanes first start to appear, they will last longer, look better, and protect your family’s health. Awesome!!

One more great tip during spring is to get out and enjoy the weather. The National Park Service announced their first peak bloom prediction at a press conference on the morning of March 1. They predict that the cherry blossoms will reach peak bloom between March 14 and 17, 2017. According to, the National Park Service, this is the earliest peak bloom on record since March 15, 1990.

Wow! That’s Extraordinary!

Peak bloom usually happens around the last week of March to the first week of April.

Well…. Not this year!

I wonder what will happen next……Extinct animals coming back?J

Anyway…. Get out and enjoy this year’s Cherry Blossom Festival. Check out the great events happening in Washington, D.C. celebrating this year’s cherry blossoms here.

Quick Tip: Pet Stain Remover

Posted on Updated on

Making your own homemade pet stain removers is simple and will usually require only simple, natural ingredients that you can find in your kitchen cupboard.Pet Odor Removal

Baking Soda:

This is nature’s deodorizer and is harmless for your family and the environment. It can be used in different ways depending on the surface you’re treating.

  •    For machine-washable items, throw an entire box of baking soda into the washing machine with the affected items and run a normal load. Air-dry the laundry. If you can still smell urine, wash the items again with an enzymatic cleaner.

 

  •   For carpet or upholstery that can be laundered, liberally sprinkle baking soda over the area and allow it to soak up as much moisture as possible. Vacuum remaining soda thoroughly then treat with one of the other options listed below.

Vinegar:

After thoroughly blotting the stain and/or applying baking soda as above, mix warm water and vinegar in a 1:1 ratio. Then apply with a rag in a blotting fashion or with a spray bottle. Place something heavy on the stain and allow it to soak up. Repeat if necessary.

Undiluted vinegar can also be used to wash urine off of hardwood floors – wash area, rinse with warm water, and dry immediately.

 

After you’ve tried these remedies and you can still smell the odor, call a professional. The’ll take care of it for you.

Need A Mattress Cleaning????

Posted on Updated on

How many times have you seen the cleaning lady at the hotel remove comforters? It’s pretty rare.
Anything you don’t see on the cart – isn’t changed between guests.lens11907821_1278102604gross-hotel-mattress

If you really want to get sick – look at this mattress.
Speaking of the mattress, when was the last time that your mattress was cleaned???

For many of you it’s been never. Just to let you know, if you have allergies or just your basic scratchy throat and itchy nose in the morning, it could be due to your mattress.

Just like you wash your clothes and hair regularly, your mattress should be cared for in the same manner. That’s if you want to extend its life and YOURS!

If you’re still undecided on cleaning your mattress just think of this. In this picture you can see why it needs to be cleaned. What about the things you can’t see, like Dust mites.

These little bugs are virtually microscopic. Every home has dust mites. They feed on human skin flakes and are found in mattresses, pillows, carpets, upholstered furniture, bed-covers, clothes, stuffed toys and fabric and fabric-covered items. Body parts and feces from dust mites can trigger asthma in individuals with allergic reactions to dust mites, and exposure to dust mites can cause asthma in children who have not previously exhibited asthma symptoms.

Regular house dust may contain asthma triggers. When you are treating your house for dust mites, try these simple steps as well.

~Remove dust often with a damp cloth.
~Vacuum carpet and fabric-covered furniture to reduce dust build-up.
~Using vacuums with high efficiency filters or central vacuums may be helpful.
~People with asthma or allergies should leave the area being vacuumed.

No place is safe from allergens no matter where you go. Even if you don’t have allergies, call a professional to clean your mattress on a regular basis. And because it is fair to say that we spend a significant proportion of time in contact with our mattress, this is particularly important.

Many of us, especially children and babies will often wake up with a runny nose, watery eyes, headache or other typical allergy symptoms? In many cases these symptoms are caused by Dust Mites that feed on the dead skin cells we shed while we sleep. These creatures are prevalent in mattresses because of the amount of time we spend sleeping on them.

A professional can clean the mattresses in your home and also treat them with an Anti-Allergen Post Spray Treatment. This treatment de-natures dust mite allergens to prevent you from suffering so severely.

After they clean the mattresses in your home it is important to encase them in allergy relief bed-covers to keep them nice and clean as well as keeping Dust Mites and allergens at bay.
Also if you find out that you or someone in your home suffers from allergies, here are some actions to take on a regular basis.

~Cover mattresses and pillows with dust proof (“allergen-impermeable”) zippered covers.
~Wash bedding (sheets, blankets and bed-covers) once per week in hot water.
~Choose washable stuffed toys, wash them often in hot water and dry them thoroughly.
~Keep stuffed toys off beds.
~Maintain low indoor humidity, ideally between 30-50% relative humidity. Humidity levels can be measured by hygrometers which are available at local hardware stores.

When you’ve decided to have your mattress cleaned, call the professionals. Especially certified cleaning technicians that can handle a job like this. The best mattress cleaners in Northern Virginia will help you to achieve a clean and healthy home.
