How Often Should I Have My Carpet Cleaned?

Vacuuming your carpets isn’t enough. There will soon come a time where you will want to consider having your carpet professionally cleaned to help keep your home spotless and allergen free and to extend the life of your carpet. Just how often should you have your carpet cleaned? Here’s a rough guide for your home.

The Average Carpet
It really depends on factors like the amount of foot traffic your carpet receives and where that carpet is laid, but on average you should look at getting the carpet cleaned every 12-18 months. This helps to lift all the dirt that gets into the fibers that vacuuming just doesn’t manage. You’ll also brighten some of the darker patches.
If your carpet is in a second home and rarely used, then cleaning can be less frequent. Just bear in mind that while there’s no foot traffic, dust will settle within the fibers.
That being said, if your carpet receives daily foot traffic and sees mud and dirt dragged in, you may want to consider cleaning more frequently.

Cleaning for Families
Families will find their carpet needs cleaning more frequently. You should consider professional carpet cleaning  every 6-12 months, instead. Your children are more likely to drag mud and dirt in or can spill drinks frequently.
Those who have pets should also consider cleaning every six months or so. The pet hairs will get stuck in the fibers and can cause some allergens. There will likely also be dirt and urine accidents that seep into the fibers.

Do you have both kids and pets? Consider cleaning every two or three months. This will help to eliminate pet problems and keep your children safe. You know they love to pick up anything from the floor and put it in their mouths!

So as you can see there is no one set rule for how often you should have your carpet cleaned but keeping these variables in mind mainly how much your carpet is used and your particular family members, and making sure you do not wait too long in between cleans will help keep your carpet investment longer and your home a healthier place to live for you and your family.

Room Deodorizers – Are They a Good Thing?

As an owner of a professional carpet cleaning company here in Tulsa, Oklahoma we are in many residential homes through out the day after receiving calls from a concerned homeowner who's family dog or cat has been urinating on the carpet. One of the most common occurrences we encounter is the use of room deodorizers in one form or another. Often times I will leave from a home and still smell the scent that gets trapped in my sinuses for hours. Yes, room deodorizers leave a pleasant smell and aroma in the air but exactly what is in them and what are we breathing, are they safe?

So that leads to the question; Room deodorizers - are they a good thing?

According to the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) in their publication, Protect Your Family from the Hidden Hazards in Air Fresheners  many of these products contain phthalates (pronounced thal-ates)—hazardous chemicals known to cause hormonal abnormalities, birth defects, and reproductive problems. NRDC’s independent testing of 14 common air fresheners, none of which listed phthalates as an ingredient, uncovered these chemicals in 86 percent (12 of 14) of the products tested, including those advertised as “allnatural” or “unscented.” 

They go on to say; There is a clear need for closer monitoring of the types of chemicals manufacturers are allowed to put into air fresheners—and for consumers to be provided with better information about what is in the products they do purchase. 

Not all room deodorizers are bad, but you should try to be more informed about the products you buy. There are several natural air deodorizers on the shelves today that are not harmful. 

More consumers are leaning toward natural living after experiencing health issues or loss of a family member leading them to educate themselves in a cleaner healthier life style. Many who have become aware of the dangers of chemicals and toxic additives that are not being regulated by the production companies are now turning to more natural alternatives such as the use of an essential oil diffuser or residential ozone machine to help eliminate odors in their homes. These alternative choices not only leave the air smelling clean and fresh but also have many health benefits as well.

If you own an indoor pet and you are dealing with odor in your home you will want to know that pet urine after 72 hours goes through a chemical process and eventually turns into a gas which is what you are smelling after these toxins reach the air and enter into your breathing zone. Not only does this bacteria produce a bad odor that permeates  through out the rest of your home but it is potentially dangerous for your health as well. Masking the odor with an air freshener is only masking the problem and can possibly be adding to the dangers of breathing in particles that are not safe for you or your family. 

When it comes to pet urine odor and bacteria in your carpet or upholstery you will want to call in a professional who deals with those kinds of situations on a regular basis. Carpet Renovations is one such company that you can confide in that has the experience and know how, using pet urine neutralizers, low pH rinsing solutions, truck mounted steam carpet extraction systems, and pet urine enzymes. Carpet Renovations has over 30 years experience with the latest developments on pet odor removal and will put their know how to work for you, leaving you with a cleaner healthier home.

Just How Clean is Your Sofa?

Maybe you have a house full of kids with a pet or two or more running in, out and about. Or, maybe it’s just an adult or two in the house that entertains family and friends frequently. Either way, you know that your upholstered furniture is getting used and probably getting more than just a little dirty.

No matter how careful everyone is, furniture collects dust, food crumbs, germs, pollen, and stains and gets a blemish or two from accidents. But there is no need to toss out that furniture and buy all new! You can have it professionally cleaned and get it looking like the day you first bought it.

By having it professionally cleaned, you’ll not only renew the feel and look of your old furniture, but you’ll give your furniture an extension of life, too. Next to your home and your vehicle, your furniture is probably one of the next biggest investments you’ll ever make. With that being said, you want to get the most that you can out of your purchase.

So, what can a professional company do that you can’t? Well, at a company like Carpet Renovations, they have powerful truck mounted steam cleaning equipment and trained technicians who have cleaned all kinds of upholstered furnishings many times over. They will analyze the pieces you want to be cleaned, then determine the best method to get it cleaned in the best way possible for you.

In many cases, they use a hot-water extraction method that is highly effective in cleaning deep down, as well as getting the surface cleaned. They also use professional grade cleaning agents that have been specially formulated to clean upholstered furniture safely, but powerful enough to give you the best- looking furniture possible.

Clean upholstered furniture doesn’t just look better, but it improves indoor allergens in your home by getting rid of the dirt, dust and other bacteria, and germ infested pollutants that collect in between the cushions and in the cracks and crevices. It also will lengthen the life of your furniture so that you will get the most from your investment.

After a good deep and thorough cleaning, a professional upholstery cleaning service will sanitize your furniture just as they do with their carpet cleaning process. They will then apply a fabric protector that is invisible to you but will keep dirt, dust and spills at bay, allowing your furniture to stay clean longer.

Carpet Renovations offers an upholstery cleaning, sanitizing, and protection package that is guaranteed to get your home furnishings back to looking their absolute best and with the added protection you will be able to keep it that way a whole lot easier.
