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.

Reasons why carpet steam cleaning is more hygienic

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.

5 cleaning tips to make sure you get your rental bond back

Country Life Carpet CareMoving house? The last thing to think about is the cleaning when you’re moving house but to get your bond back you need to.

Here are 5 tips,

  1. Check your condition report and be honest about any damage
  2. Understand your obligations
  3. Get professional cleaning services – especially your carpets
  4. Do other cleaning yourself
  5. Vacate by the due date and Return all keys

Check your condition report and be honest about any damage

Find your inspection report that you got from the property manager as you enter the house to assess the condition of the house. Take the report for each room and note the difference from the original report.

Be honest in noting the damages as some may fall under the category of ‘fair wear and tear’. Handle everything with care to make sure anything that is counted “fair” will not be charged to you.

Understand your obligations

Provide the correct notice that is required to end your lease agreement as it is noted under the Tenancy Act. Never break the lease,always provide enough notice to avoid ending up having to pay costs which will be taken from your bond.

Pay your outstanding bills such as power payments as it is your obligation to clear all your charges upon vacating the house.

Get professional cleaning services – especially your carpets

carpet cleaningIf the property is furnished then consider getting upholstery and mattress cleaning. Clean the carpets, tiles, any flooring by using steam cleaners for carpets and grout cleaners for tiles. Call in the professional and give the receipt to your property manager.

Call Country Life Carpet Care we are professional carpet cleaners and floorcleaners, ask for a free quote.

Do other cleaning yourself

Doa bit of elbow grease during your spare time with some cleaning materials to bring the properties back to their conditions. Assess your checklist to identify which areas need to be cleaned.

Always keep the house clean even the areas you seldom use as this can help you prevent exerting much effort when you are about to leave the house. All furniture pieces should be free of dust as well as vents of air conditioners and heaters to avoid damages.

Make sure you remember to clean the oven too. Work on one room at a time and when you are done move onto the next.

Vacate by the due date and Return all keys

Vacate by the correct date or you will be charged extra for overstaying your lease. Make sure to give all keys back and any other items such as garage remote controls and doorbell functionalities by the agreed date.

Violating the rules may cause the owner to have to replace the locks which you would be charged for. If you lost any items or key then tell the property manager as usually this will only be a small charge.

  2. Keep the floor dry
  3. Vacuum carpet regularly

Keep your area dry by using clean cloth to absorb any water. When it is wet outside remove your shoes before coming in and leave the rain outside.

Vacuum carpet daily

Prevent dirt and grit becoming embedded in your carpet by regularly vacuuming the carpets. Dirt can scratch wood and vinyl floors so remove it as soon as you see it.Vacuuming your carpets will also remove allergens and make your home fresher this winter! Getting your carpets steam cleaned annually will make sure they are in tiptop condition and protect your investment.

Treat spills

Wipe up spills instantly by using paper towel to remove the excess liquid and then use only water to clean up the surface completely. Never use harsh cleaners or bleach as this may set the stain and make your problem worse.
