3 tips for cleaning your home this summer holidays

home cleaning by CLCCWhether you are going on a family trip or just stay at home for the holiday, chances are, this is the time of the year when we need our homes to be clean. With entertaining, children at home, friends dropping in and all the other great things that happen in the holiday to keep us busy, your home often suffers. Keeping your home clean can become more difficult than usual.

While you can’t prevent the occasional mess and disorder, here are some tips you can follow to get things back on track and resume your normal routine for the next year.

Put in the work early

You might excuse yourself not to clean your home because you are busy for the holiday but it’s important to keep the level of tidiness inside your home at a manageable level. Simple stuff like putting away things after you use them, storing things where they should be, will help you manage your workload later.

Have your carpets professionally cleaned

You might be able to vacuum your carpet regularly but this doesn’t deep clean your carpet or remove deep seated bacteria and dirt. The kids are in the house and they might track in more dirt than normal onto your carpet, not to mention food stains! Call in the professionals and let them clean your carpet. Besides, it is recommended to deep clean your carpet once or twice a year.

Have your upholstery professionally cleaned

If there is a time of the year when your upholstery needs a thorough cleaning, it is during summer. The daily wear and tear and the burden of the holiday will allow your upholstery to look old. Make it look like new again by hiring a professional cleaner.

If the grout reside was not remove after the tiles were laid your tiles will never look really clean. If you grout has not been sealed it can also trap dirt making it hard for you to wash the dirt away as when the tile is dry, the cycle continues all over again.

Here are some things to avoid to make sure your tiles look the best for as long as they can. Remember that some tile cleaning mistakes can cause irreversible damage, read on to avoid these mistakes.

Common tile cleaning mistakes you should know!

  1. Excessive scrubbing

Excessive scrubbing, scrubbing too much will wreck the surface of your tiles over time. You may think that the harder you scrub on your tile floor, the better the result will be. This is a big mistake! When you scrub too much, you can damage your tile floor in the process creating cracks and scratches in your tiles and ruin your grout.

Mistake 2.

Too much cleaner. The more products you use on your tile floor, the more you then have to remove it again. More cleaner means cleaner floor doesn’t mean a cleaner floor it means more work for you. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and only use the recommended amount – plus, it will save you money too!

Mistake 3.

Using the wrong product. Before you start using a cleaner, read the instructions and make sure it is the right cleaner for your type of tiles. Test the cleaner in a small patch behind a door, sink or toilet to make sure it doesn’t damage or harm your tile flooring. At Country Life Carpet Care we recommend a neutral cleaner, contact us for more details.

Mistake 4.

Not acting quickly. The longer you let the dirt, stain or damage sit on your tile floors, the harder these problems will be to fix. Act quickly on stains and damage so you can spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying your tile floor.

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.

Useful tips in cleaning your upholstery

sofaYour furniture upholstery looks tired and a little shabby but buying new furniture isn’t in your budget. Satisfy your needs by following the 3 tips then the result will make you smile.

3 great helpful tips in cleaning your upholstery:

  1. Apply scotch guard
  2. Know the furniture cleaning codes
  3. Spot stains

Apply scotch guard

Scotch guard your fabric to make it stain resistant. Check to see if your fabric has been scotch guarded or do you need an after sale scotch guard to be applied. Scotch guard is a water-repelling protectant and a wise investment perfect to save you time and money.

Make sure to wait your upholstery completely dry and as clean as possiblebefore spraying it with scotch guard. Wear a face mask and a pair of rubber gloves to protect your skin and prevent inhaling aerosol spray. Shake the can well then spray it around the upholstery covering the entire surfaces. Wait at least 8 hours or so before sitting or touching the furniture.

Know the furniture cleaning codes

Learn the furniture cleaning codes as this can help you know what type of cleaning method you will use. Below are the most common furniture codes:

W:  Your furniture can be cleaned with water.

S: A furniture cleaning solvent can be applied to clean your item.

SW: Both solvent and water can be used for cleaning.

X: No using of either solvent or water to the item but a soft brush instead. Your item need to be dry cleaned to take deep stains.

Spot stains

Never spray it directly with water or leave a water ring that is hard to clean. First thing to do is scrape excess food off by using a dull edge then dampen a towel to work it to the stain. Do it repeatedly until the stain is removed. Remember to test new methods that are appropriate for your item as some will require different care. When testing do it on the bottom at the back if it will be not seen or sometimes under your furniture will have the same fabric you can test on.

Useful tips in cleaning your upholstery

Need help cleaning your upholstery, especially before scotch guarding? A really good clean can breathe new life into your beloved furniture piece.
