carpet cleanCarpet cleaning, having your carpets cleaned? Here are a few tips to make it easy for everyone.

  1. Move furniture
  2. Remove fragile and valuable items
  3. Inspect the carpets
  4. Keep away your children and pets
  5. Let your carpets dry

Move furniture

To get the most out of your carpet cleaning it is best to move out as much furniture as possible. Make sure to take away the small furniture such as dining room chairs, plants and magazine racks. You can place these items another room that isn’t going to be cleaned or outside under the patio.

Also pin up full length curtains or draperies at least 10 cm off the floor. Make sure to pin up any skirts on upholstered furniture that may touch the carpet.

Heavy items like bookcases can be left as the carpet under them won’t be cleaned.

Remove fragile items

If you are worried about anything that is particularly fragile move it and put it somewhere safe. At Country Life Carpet Care we take the utmost care when cleaning your home but occasionally accidents can happen, so reduce your stress and put that precious item away.

Inspect the carpets

Inspection on your carpet and take note of any major stains or areas of wear. You can point these areas out when giving your carpet cleaner a tour. For stains we can treat these areas first.

Keep away your children and pets

For safety and everyone’s peace of mind, keep your children and pets in a place where they can’t disturb the cleaning.

Let your carpets dry before walking on them

Your carpet cleaner will advise you on how long your carpets will  take to dry and when you can put your furniture back. Let the carpet dry overnight, make sure to tell everyone not to step on it. Or if you can’t avoid walking across your newly cleaned carpets then ask some shoe coverings from your cleaner.

Reasons why carpet steam cleaning is more hygienic

carpetWant to keep your home safe and hygienic for the family? Steam cleaning will make your carpets clean and healthy for everyone!  A clean house starts from the floor up.

3 reasons why steam cleaning is hygienic:

  1. Superheated steam
  2. No chemicals
  3. Antibacterial

Superheated steam

Steam is your best choice of hygienic cleaner to break down grime, or any particles in your carpets. Steam cleaners use high temperatures, great to kill 99.99% of bacteria in your home leaving surfaces sterilised and free of any allergens that may cause sickness to you and your beloved pets.

Steam cleaners combined with a professional industrial vacuum cleaner will get right to the base of your carpet and remove all the dirt, grime and bugs that are hiding in there. A household vacuum cleaner no matter how good it is, just isn’t strong enough to get to the base of your carpet.

No chemicals

Steam is natural, which means it is safe and hygienic for all your family members, guests and even your pets. Using only clean water, steam leaves no toxic residues and effectively fights bacteria creating a powerful cleaning force.

Steam is widely used in the hospital industry providing a high level of sanitation while being quick and easy. Great to save you time.

Want to stay healthy while saving money? Steam can give you highest standard of hygiene without any harsh chemicals or extensive cleaning routines.

Antibacterial

Getting rid of allergies? Steam cleaners are best to kill allergens and dust mites that are multiplying in hard to reach places such as fabrics and the base of your carpets.

Steam penetrates deep into surfaces killing microorganisms which can then be removed by vacuuming. Antibacterial cleaning usually requires powerful chemical agents but this is not necessary in steam cleaning. With steam alone, microorganisms are destroyed instantly with no need for abrasive cleaning products.

No chemicals, no danger and no allergies.

Carpet cleaning basics – things you might not know?

Clean carpets by Country Life Carpet Cleaning (CLCC)Do you really know how to keep your carpet clean? You might be surprised how many ways are there to clean dirt from your carpets.

Here are some of the basic things to apply that you can do everyday or as often as needed to keep your carpet clean:

  1. Sweep
  2. Vacuum
  3. Shampoo
  4. Steam Cleaners

Sweep

Use a broom, yes good old fashion sweeping. You won’t believe that broom can flawlessly clean your carpet just like cleaning hardwood or tile flooring. Remember to choose regular broom not a hard deck broom when cleaning your carpet. Regular broom can give you more control while you are sweeping the dirt away, great workout too. Remember to finish the job off and pick up the piles of dirt and dust before you go so that it is not returned to you carpet.

Vacuum

Vacuuming your carpet at least once a week is an effective way to remove dirt from your carpet. Always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations as each vacuum cleaner has its own settings for different types of carpets.

Shampoo

Use shampoo cleaners to clean your carpet, as they are available to buy or rent on an hourly or daily basis. Always follow the directions that come with the machine to avoid ending up with some sticky residue that will damage your carpet over time. Make sure you don’t over wet your carpet or leave it wet, otherwise your carpet may rot.

Steam Cleaners

Save money and have your carpet steam cleaned once a year. Steam cleaning will extend the life of your carpet by removing the build-up of dirt from your carpet that regular vacuuming just can’t reach. By having your carpets steam cleaned once a year you won’t have to replace them as often due to wear caused by dirt rubbing on the base of your carpet. Steam cleaning uses water  and no harsh residue will be left.

Rugs will need more regular vacuuming than your carpet and can we taken outside and given a good shake as needed to remove any further dirt being trampled through your home.

Dry carpets

If you have wet or dry vacuum avoid getting carpets too wet. Over wetting your carpet can cause damage, discolouration and reduce the life of your carpet.Remember carpets are fast absorbers so always be careful when handling any liquid substance to avoid accidental spilling of liquid onto the carpets.

How to get rid of carpet dents

carpet dentWinter is almost here! With nothing much to do on a cold wet day, you could turn your attention to tidying up your house. The first thing you might like to do change the position of your furniture. Placing furniture in a different area can change the entire look of your home. Standing back admiring how go the new layout looks and you see IT!

Carpet dents!

What should you do now?

Dealing with carpet dents

If your furniture sits atop your carpet, chances are, it has caused a dent onto your carpet especially if it has been there for quite a long time. Dents are much like holes – they take up space in your carpet, only, they are imitating the furniture’s bottom that used to sit on there. They don’t harm your carpet but they aren’t very nice looking at all.

Get rid of carpet dents immediately

When you move your furniture from its original position, carpet dents are inevitable but it doesn’t mean that you can’t get rid of it. Here are 2 effective ways on how to get rid of carpet dents on your own:

Use water

Fill a spray bottle with water and lightly spray it over the dents. Use a blow dryer, set it on the hottest setting possible (do a test patch from behind the door to check it first).

DON’T USE THE HOTTEST SETTING if you have synthetic carpet. Blow some hot air on the moistened area. The heat will help the wool of your carpet rebound. Don’t forget to fluff up the carpet fibre with your fingers.

Use ice cubes

Use ice cubes in each indentation. Let it melt away. Wait for 12 hours and blot up the wet areas. Use the edge of the spoon to lift up the carpet fibre back to its original state. You can also use a hot iron. Place a cloth on the area; place the iron several inches above the cloth for 1 minute. DON’T LET THE IRON TOUCH THE CARPET, it will burn your carpet. Brush up the fibre using a coin or the edge of the spoon.

There, like magic, carpet dents is gone!

Having your carpet steam cleaned is also a great way to remove the deals from your carpet and as an added bonus you get a lovely clean carpet too. Contact Country Life Carpet Care. We offer cleaning services such as carpet carpeting, tiles, upholstery and even mattress cleaning too. Ring us now, free quote.

  2. Remove your shoes and put on your slippers
  3. Vacuum up any dirt immediately when you see it

These tips can help you save your carpet this winter. However, if you need to get your carpets cleaned or have a really bad stain don’t wait, call a professionally carpet cleaner now. The quicker you get stains dealt with then you will reduce the risk of the stain damaging your carpet.

Keeping your carpet clean during winter can be a real headache.  With the children playing inside and the pets staying all day indoor, keeping your home clean can be a tough job. However, when it comes to keeping your carpet clean, these winter tips will help to alleviate some of your housekeeping headaches.
