5 Vacuuming Tips

Vacuuming can get repetitive and boring at some point. Don’t allow this to get to you. Your carpets ought to be vacuumed at least once per week. This can help to help keep the dust and dirt out of them. Here are a few vacuuming tips which will be useful!

vacuum1. Dust it Off! Before you start vacuuming, dust your living space from the top-down. What this means is to start dusting your ceiling fan and then work your way down to the baseboards.

2. Move it! Make sure that small items are picked up off the floor. Don’t be lazy and attempt to vacuum around them! Also, look for small pieces that may be on the floor, like bobby pins or screws. This could damage your vacuum and who wants to fix that or purchase a new one? Not us!

3. Work Backwards. Begin in the back corner of the room and work your way out from the room. This also applies to stairs, start at the very top and work down.

4. Check the bag often. Bags really should be changed after they are half-full. The vacuum becomes less efficient as the bag starts to fill up. It can also begin to leave a smell in your house if your bag becomes too full.

5. Once per week. Make sure that you are vacuuming all of your carpeted areas at least one time a week. Even when you don’t ever go into your living room, make sure your vacuum it!

Follow these simple actions and your carpets will thank you for sure. If you wish to treat your carpets right, vacuum them a few times a week! We all know that sometimes you might forget and your carpets may look somewhat dingy, but we can help.

Save Your Carpets and Upholstery with Protectant

It might seem like a no brainer of why you should clean your carpets and rugs, but here are just a couple of explanations why! On a daily basis you walk, lie down, and play with your kids on your carpets and couches. Regardless of the occasional mud and dirt you lug in, your intent is the same: the cleaner your carpets are, the healthier your home is going to be. This is the same for the upholstery items too! We know that couches and chairs are very pricey; however they are well worth the cost that should last you for years. Let us show you the way to keep your furniture looking its best using our amazing Chem-Dry fabric protector.protectant

Consider What You’re Working With

Over the months you could overlook cleaning the couches and chairs or else you might just think they don't really need a cleaning. Many people make the mistake of ignoring the upkeep needs of their furniture because they don’t think it needs to be cleaned. Alternatively, they spot clean and vacuum their carpets, and commit to regularly Chem-Dry cleanings for their flooring. But what happens to your microfiber couch cushions after that spaghetti stain sets in? How clean can your favorite lounge chair really be when months (or possibly even years) of pet hair, dirt and food stains have accumulated and set in?

The Functionality of Fabric Protectant

Just as your carpet is an investment, so is your loveseat, couch and reclining chair. Do you remember when individuals would cover their couches with plastic to protect them? Nowadays, you will find there's a much better approach to offer protection to your furniture than awkward, sticky plastic. Whether you’re more likely to dropping your coffee cup onto your upholstery every now and then, or simply just tracking in dirt from the outdoors, protectant will help you keep those unwanted stains and spots away. Our solution helps to prevent stains from seeping into the fibers of your carpet and upholstery fibers. This protectant helps stains from becoming permanent in your upholstery. Our Protectant allows a few more seconds for you to grab that towel and get the stain up a little better. In the long run, it saves you money, by easily allowing you to eradicate stains whenever you spill or stain your furniture.

Protect Your Furniture From Tough Stains

While there are several easy do-it-yourself fabric protectant solutions on the market, getting it done right the first time-by knowledgeable professionals-can provide you with the peace and mind of clean, stain resistant furniture once and for all! Chem-Dry’s fabric protectant is easy, simple and effective. By using a tough, stain resistant solution which is easy on the environment, your upholstery will stay cleaner longer.

Home Cleaning with 5 Natural Products

A lot of people don't realize the harsh chemicals and toxins that are in your cleaning supplies. Some are so harsh that they recommend avoiding contact with skin and eyes, which is scary! Using your own natural green cleaning products will give your house an eco-friendly cleaning that's powerful as well as gentle. This list of cleaning products doesn't contain toxic vapors and harsh chemicals. Listed here are five naturally organic products that can be found in just about any home that do a great job of cleaning minus the chemicals. We have rounded them up in a list for you along with the best way to clean with them!cleaning with natural products

5- Vinegar

Vinegar is a great cleaning product that works well in the kitchen removing grease, but it also works great in bathrooms as well. Vinegar is known to breakdown grease build up. Grease from cooking gets caked on stovetop, countertops and tables, but have no fear, vinegar is here! White vinegar is a strong cleaning agent due to its antibacterial effect and acidic nature. Research performed in Japan learned that the bactericidal effects of vinegar was enhanced as the solution's temperature increased, therefore emphasizing the benefit of using warm, natural cleaning solutions.

4- Salt

It can be used to clean kitchen utensils and even clearing drains. When combined with baking soda, it can cut through grease too. It can also whiten discolored cutting boards if used with cool water as an everyday scrub as well as remove burn spots around dishware edges and stains from delicate chinaware. You didn't think that this cooking seasoning would help with cleaning, now did you!?

3- Lemon Juice

For those who look at the ingredients used in cleaners you will see there is lemon in a number of them. Well there's a reason for the lemon juice! Lemon juice can destroy mold and can breakdown grease as well. That isn't all; lemon juice also won't leave behind streaks in your appliances and on your shower. Researchers in Nebraska took a closer look at lemon oil's power to reduce the growth of mold by applying a coat of vinegar and lemon juice to roast beef. The study illustrated the prevention of mold spore germination and development. Combine natural lemon juice and vinegar and/or olive oil to produce a tough cleaning solution that leaves a natural-smelling scent behind in the room.

2- Cream of Tarter

Cream of tartar is a by-product as a result of the winemaking process. When wine is made, a powder develops inside the wine barrels while fermenting. This powder stems from tartaric acid, which naturally occurs during winemaking. It's left behind in the barrels and then later can be used for baking. Cream of tartar can be used for a variety of household cleaning tasks such as cleaning bathtub tile, removing rust stains, renewing scratched dishes, and cleaning the gunk off your toaster. To eliminate rust follow these steps:

  1. Mix equal part cream of tarter, salt and water to create a paste.
  2. Rub paste on rusted pan or other item.
  3. Let dry.
  4. Polish with soft rag.

1- Baking Soda

Baking soda is a natural deodorizer while offering an abrasive quality that outperforms other toxic, powdered commercial cleansers. Use it on a variety of surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom to effectively eliminate stains as well as clean grimy ovens inside. Also, adding salt to baking soda gives it an extra boost of scrubbing power!

Many of these cleaning products may be found in your own home. These 5 products don't leave behind chemicals or harmful toxins for you and your family. But when it involves cleaning your carpet, upholstery and tile, call Chem-Dry. We use a Green Certified solution to clean your carpets and upholstery. Natural carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning agents are far better for both you and the environment. Consider using Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning by Warren to support the health of your family.

Maintaining Your Rugs 

Many individuals decide to cover high traffic parts of their carpet with throw rugs to protect the look of the carpet. Nevertheless, how can you protect the rugs from wear and tear? Although it may seem a impossible task, there are actually some great methods for keeping your rugs looking their finest. With the proper care and attention, you can maintain the look of your rugs in the high traffic areas.

area rug on floor

Pick the Best Rug

Deciding on the best color for your area rug is a great idea, but just be sure you also think about the material that it's made from. You want to opt for a material that is durable and sturdy. Particularly high traffic areas, the rug you decide on can make a huge difference in just how long it's going to last. Nylon and wool carpets can be good choices, as they provide a very durable material that can withstand heavy traffic from your family and pets.

Vacuuming is Necessary 

Frequent vacuuming is a crucial part of caring for your rugs and carpet, particularly in high traffic areas. Vacuuming really helps to lift the debris out of the carpet fiber before it settles in and damages the rug. So, the more traffic an area endures, the more often it needs to be vacuumed. This might even mean vacuuming everyday to help keep dirt and soil to a minimum.

Plan In Advance

Protect your rugs by minimizing the amount of moisture and dirt which comes in. Place walk-in doormats by doors, ensuring that family and guests wipe off their shoes or take them off. This easy precautionary method may be an extremely effective way to help keep your rugs clean. If you can, you may even consider removing your shoes by the entry way to keep any dirt from getting into the house.

Act Immediately 

Areas that are subject to lots of traffic may also be more likely to experience spills and accidents. Act quickly in case a spill happens on your rug. If required, use stain or spot remover such as Chem-Dry’s World Famous Spot Remover to the affected area. The faster you take action, the more unlikely that the spill will soak into the rug and leave a stain. It is also good to have a professional protectant applied to your rugs as well to make clean up a whole lot easier.

1. Put together a “Drop Space”

cleaning carpets back to schooolWhether you have a mud room, garage or entry way, come up with a designated spot or basket for your kids to place all their sports gear into as soon as they return home from all of their practices. This educates them to put things away in an tidy fashion. This helps if you are late to practice and can’t seem to find one cleat or that one baseball glove. You'll know that it is there and also you won’t be asking your kids hundreds of times where they left it. It will keep your stressful days more enjoyable to have all your kid’s stuff in one space. And your carpets will remain looking fresh without all of the dirt and grim being pulled all around them.

2. Make Your Kids Help

We all know that some children feel qualified to receive everything and here is a way to ease them into the real life and help in your home too. Maintaining a clean, tidy house must be a family affair. So don’t bear the responsibility of the sweeping, mopping, vacuuming the carpets and dusting without help? Delegating small tasks to each member of your family is usually a win/win, as it allows the kids to grasp responsibility along with what being a team player is all about! Your young ones will appreciate you more, as they realize how hard it really is to keep the house looking in good shape.

3. Prepare for Tomorrow

Our last tip is to try to have your kids prepare for the following day after dinner and homework are completed. Make them map out their next outfit down to the shoes. Ensure all of their sports gear is prepared to go and absolutely nothing is missing. This takes the anxiety level of morning hours way down and it helps you are aware that your kids have everything they need for the next day. Also, as they won’t be running in and out of the house to get overlooked items it will save your carpet from more dirt and grim.

We understand this can be a demanding time and we here at Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning by Warren wish to help you and your loved ones. Call today to really get your carpets cleaned by our professionals and you'll be glad that you did. Happy Back to School!

Summer Cleaning Schedule

Regardless of whether you live with your significant other, or you run a busy household of kids and pets, it’s challenging to keep your place clean. The truth is, it can seem like a hopeless feat with beds which need to be made, floors that need to be mopped and dishes that ought to be done! Exactly why are you doing all the work yourself? Show your children to place some pride in their personal belongings and living space. Here’s how to do it in a few quick and simple steps-no ‘period of adjustment’ required.

Toddlers Can Clean Too

It is never to early to give your children responsibilities. Even if it just picking up one toy or shutting a drawer. No matter how quiet and serene or loud and hectic your house may be, the same rule applies: if you have a heathy home, you have a happy home. When you've got toddlers to clean up after, bedrooms can get messy and shared living spaces (living room, dining room, common area) can look like a disaster. Do you have a toddler who impersonates the Tasmania devil? Great! Use it to your benefit! Teach them to be accountable for one small chore, such as tidying up their bed or putting away their toys after having fun with them. Just implementing a ‘one small chore’ rule on a daily basis, and you’ll notice the time it saves you.

Have a Reward System

Whatever age you may be, everyone could use a reason to stay on track. Head to your local school supply store and buy some markers, stickers and a large sheet of cardboard or whiteboard or print this chart for each one of your family members. On Sunday make a list of the chores each week that you needs to be done before play time or hanging out with friends. Just be sure to keep the chores age appropriate. In the end, you want each child to feel good about themselves, not frustrated because the task at hand is too challenging to complete. Together, think of a reward for a week’s worth of chores accomplished. Would your kids like to head out to their favorite ice cream shoppe? Or, would everyone enjoy a round of miniature golf? Or, a night at the park with the whole family? Implement an incentive that will motivate your family to do a great job taking care of their personal belongings, and you’ll have a family that cleans together, sticks together, and makes happy memories, together! 

All this cleaning with keep your house looking clean and fresh, but when you want a really deep clean, call Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning by Warren to clean your carpets and upholstery items!

Summertime FUN!

It is summer and the youngsters are out of school, which means lots and lots of messes. Being artistic is a talent, but when your child draws his latest masterpiece on your carpets, it can be a detriment. Some stains take time and effort to remove from carpets fibers, although some are relatively easy. If you have the occasional paint spill from your child’s artwork project, here’s some good news: paint is easier to remove than many other stains and spills out there. Here’s how to fix those paint and crayon spills to help make your carpets like new again:getting out paint in your carpet

Tricks for Treating Wet Paint

The overall principle for do-it-yourself stain removal is never to scrub, but to soak up its moisture (and with as much patience as possible!) The same approach comes into play when your child has scribbled their “artwork” on your beautiful living room carpet. Witnessing the splatter of a palate of finger paints can work you into a craze, but instead, run to the paper towels and calmly begin soaking up the maximum amount of paint as you can. Many people make the mistake of ‘blotting’ paint or another substance that has started to soak into their carpets fibers. This process can actually make things worse; instead, lay dry paper towels over the wet paint and give it a couple of seconds to soak up as much liquid as possible. Repeat until there’s no more moisture left. At this point, you’ll have removed the majority of the paint. What’s left will be some dry paint. Leave the remaining steps until the next morning!

How to Remove Dry Paint

There are numerous options you have to remove dry paint, and both require a razor or knife. Choose nail polish remover or WD-40-both work well as a ‘quick fix’ and get the job done until your professional cleaners can come in and thoroughly clean your carpet stains and spills.

wet paint in carpet• If you’re using nail polish remover…this do-it-yourself remedy is quick and fool proof. Lather up your nail polish brush into the solution and start to apply it onto your carpet. Working with a simple brushing motion (similar to how you’d brush nail color onto your nails) dab it with a fresh coat every other minute or so. The color of the paint will start to fade, and once it does, you can start to dab the affected region with some cold water and a rag. Vacuum your carpet as a last step, and if the stain hasn’t gone away, contact your trustworthy cleaning professional to discuss stain removal options.

• If you’re using WD-40…consider it a smart tool to have on hand in order to remove dried paint from the fibers of your carpet. It comes in the form of a spray lubricant and is excellent at breaking down certain spills such as paint. Generously spray the affected region of your carpet with WD-40 and let it sit for up to 25 minutes. Take a rag, and scrub the paint until you begin to see it come off in bits and pieces onto your rag. Scrub vigorously, and continue to do so until it’s come off on both sides of your rag, leaving very little residue on your carpet. Thoroughly vacuum your carpet, and if a stain persists, contact your local Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning by Warren professional to effectively get the job done for you.

Happy, healthy and clean carpets are what you deserve…despite how cute that little Picasso of yours may be as he paints them to his heart’s content!

Are you Ready for 2015?

Below are cleaning tips that will help to keep your home extra clean in 2015:

1. Use door mats and small area rugs in your entry way. Where ever there is a door from the outside, there needs to be a place for people to wipe the bottom of their shoes off. If you can prevent the traffic areas from getting more dirt and grim, the cleaner your home will look.

2. Sanitize the touchy areas of your home. Those doorknobs, light switches and fridge door handle, get a lot of use during the day. Make sure that you are sanitizing these items at least once a week, if not more. Keeping a bottle of hand sanitizer by the door and make those who enter wash up. Kick those germs before they even enter your home!

3. Have a “landing place” for when you get home. Set up an area by your door for items coming into your home everyday. Instead of setting your coat on a chair and the mail on the counter, have a designated area with table and hooks for it all when you walk in. This will help keep items in one place and you will always know where your keys are at!

Follow these 3 easy steps and you will find yourself in a cleaner and healthier home. We hope that you and your family have a wonderful 2015!

Chem-Dry Vs. Steam Cleaning

 

If you want your carpets cleaned so well that they look like new, at an affordable price, by honest trained professionals, with quality products and cleaning solutions then you've made the right choice. We have harnessed the power of carbonation to restore your carpets to  that "brand new" look and feel.

All of us have poured a carbonated drink into a glass and watched as the carbonation rose to the top. The natural "lifting" properties, allow these bubbles to rise to the top easily. Using that same theory, we have mastered the use of carbonation to penetrate deep into your carpets, using millions of effervescent bubbles to blast and lift dirt and grime from the individual fibers. The carbonated method blasts these unwanted particles to the top level of your carpet, where they are safely extracted using our proprietary hot water extraction. With our proprietary solution obliterating tough stains in it path, we can remove all grime from your carpets completely, giving your home the most satisfying and thorough treatment possible.

This is compared to steam cleaning where gallons of water are harsh soaps are dumped into your carpets. This approach presses dirt and moisture down into your carpet, hiding the mess rather than cleaning it, and creates a breeding ground for mold and other bacteria. With all that extra water they dumped most carpets won't be dry for days. Now compare that to the Chem-Dry clean that will leave your clean carpets dry in just 1-2 hours since we use just a fraction of the moisture. Life is busy, and we can get your carpets clean almost 24 times faster than the competition. Once you experience comfort done the Chem-Dry way you'll never go back.

Don't worry, with all these superior services, we can still offer them at a price to fit any budget. Call today to learn more about how we can give your carpets and upholstery the best clean available today!
