Carpet Renovations

Meet the owners of Carpet Renovations, Inc.

Welcome and thank you so much for coming to our blog to meet us! Our names are Paul and Rose Dixon Owners of Carpet Renovations, Inc.

It has been a pleasure for us to serve the Greater Tulsa & Broken Arrow, Oklahoma Area. We have really been thrilled operating our carpet cleaning business in our new Broken Arrow Location! So much so we recently moved our residence to Broken Arrow having previously lived in Claremore, Oklahoma.

We are currently attending church at Sheridan Christian Center and looking forward to becoming active members within the church possibly serving in the Children's Ministry and Evangelism Areas. We will keep you posted on how that is coming along whereas we just started attending this marvelous church just a few months ago and looking where the most need and best fit for us will be.

Other things we enjoy doing is visiting Costa Rica where we are currently as I am writing this article. We visit mainly to see family but we also very much enjoy the beautiful ocean beaches and rain forests along with the very interesting and fascinating experiences of the market shopping in down town central San Jose! Of course this is just common place for my wife Rose but a whole new experience for me. We very much enjoy spending time with our children and grandchildren who also live here in the Tulsa area so we get to see them quite frequently and cherish every moment spent with them.

As we strive to be and become one of the leading carpet cleaning companies in our area we try not to lose focus on the fact that it is a privilege to be doing what we are doing. It is people such as yourselves and of course our return customers that allow us to keep serving and growing the business as we are pursuing our dreams. We love setting goals and accomplishing them as we add new and creative ideas to the business; new equipment, products, and hiring some of the best employees a company can have.

Our goal with what we want to accomplish throughout the day as business owners is to be a blessing to everyone we come in contact with and to offer one of the best carpet cleaning experiences that one can have. We do this by providing the best equipment and training to our technicians and passing on the desire to them to be a blessing to each and every customer. Our aim is to completely satisfy and wow our clients with a great job and to add to their day an extra touch of enjoyment.

Now that you have met us and know a little about ourselves we truly look forward to hearing from you and making your acquaintance also.

The Heat Transfer - The Professional Carpet Cleaner's Secret Weapon

★★★★★ J. Hudson - Great job. As promised, they called before they came, showed up on time, and did a great job as quickly as possible. Jordan was polite and efficient. Not only did he get the carpets clean, but he got out stains I had long since given up on getting out. Prices were reasonable too.

This was an actual Google+ Review given to our company a few months back by another satisfied customer. There are a few things that make a great carpet cleaning company stand out from the rest. One of them is going the extra step when it comes to stains that do not come out with a professional carpet cleaning. Try this trick that professional carpet cleaning companies use when a stain will not come out with their powerful truck mounted steam cleaning systems. You will be surprised by the results! The Heat Transfer process is easy to do and can be done with items that you already have hanging around in your home. Listed below are the steps to follow the next time you have a stubborn stain to remove.

How to do a Heat Transfer:

Brown Stains: Pet Urine, Coffee, Tea, Red Wine, etc...

Mix one quarter teaspoon of liquid hand dish washing detergent and three tablespoon of white vinegar with two cups of warm water.

Red Stains: Kool-Aid, Gatorade, Red Punch, etc...

Mix one quarter teaspoon of liquid hand dish washing detergent and three tablespoon of ammonia with two cups of warm water.

1. Using a clean white Terri-cloth rag, blot the stain with your prepared solution above until you remove as much of the spill as possible. Make sure you use enough solution for some of it to remain on the carpet fibers but not so much that it over wets the carpet.

2. Rinse out your rag thoroughly then ring it out leaving it slightly damp.

3. Place the rag over the stain

4. Use a common household iron set on medium steam apply pressure to the rag 20 seconds at a time moving it around frequently.

5. Lift the damp rag to check the stain, If some discoloration still remains repeat steps 1-4 until the stain is completely gone.

Note: This process works on new and old stains and is a safe and proven method for stain removal. Should you have any problems removing a colored stain with this method contact your local carpet cleaning specialist.

How to Remove Pet Urine from Carpet

They're cute, cuddly, and absolutely your very best friend, right? But when it comes to their little mess's pet urine in carpet can prove to be one of the more difficult stains to get out. In this short article we will walk you through exactly how to remove those stubborn pet urine stains from your carpet.

1. If the area is still wet you should first absorb the urine from the carpet and pad by placing an absorbent rag or towel over the area and step on it firmly several times until there is no more urine to soak up.

2. Depending on the size of the accident mix a 50/50 mixture of white distilled vinegar and water in a glass or for larger stains, a bowl. Pour the mixture onto the stain making sure you saturate the carpet enough to get the solution deep into the carpet pad below. Pet urine penetrates into the carpet pad so we want the vinegar solution to soak into the pad also. The vinegar is high in acid and will neutralize the alkaline in the pet urine.

3. Allow a dwell time of at least 15 minutes for the solution to completely neutralize the urine.

4. Next, fold a white terri-cloth rag and place on top of the stain. Apply pressure with your hand or step on it firmly to get out as much of the solution as possible. Repeat this step until there is no more moisture transferring onto the rag.

5. To finish the process fold a fresh white rag and place on top of the area then place something heavy on top of the rag and leave overnight.

The above steps should remove the pet urine stain from the carpet and the pad but if the stain is still visible after drying, mist a light mist of 3% concentration hydrogen peroxide onto the area. Do not over wet the carpet; we are now working with the surface fibers only to remove any yellowish staining. Using a clean, white, absorbent cloth blot or wipe the stain from the outside working your way in. Repeat until the stain is gone.

This is a safe and proven method for pet stain removal but if for any reason the pet stain does not come all the way out contact your local carpet cleaning specialist or you may want to read are article How to do a Heat Transfer on carpet.

Tulsa Carpet Cleaning - Frequently Asked Questions

Tulsa Carpet Cleaning - Frequently Asked Questions

If you just had your carpet cleaned or thinking about having your carpet cleaned then this article will answer some of the questions you may have.

After 27 years in the carpet cleaning business the following are a few of the main questions we have been asked after cleaning a home owners carpet.

1. How long will it take for my carpet to dry? Usually between 2 to 4 hours depending on how soiled the carpets are. The more soiled the carpet is, the more solution is needed, the longer the drying time will be. To speed up the drying time, set your thermostat “fan” setting to “on,” turn on all ceiling fans and open window blinds to allow the direct sunlight in. Do not open windows or doors on wet or humid days. This allows outside moisture in and will slow the drying process.

2. Can I walk on the carpet after it has been cleaned? It is best to stay off the carpet until dry, although often times this is not possible. If it is necessary to walk on the carpet after cleaning, ask your carpet technician for a complimentary pair of shoe covers.

3. My carpet is a stain resistant carpet. Is it necessary to reapply a carpet protector? Carpet stain blockers do wear over a period of time. Carpet manufacturers recommend that you reapply a carpet protector each time you have your carpet cleaned. To protect your carpet investment, ask your technician about our Green Guard Carpet Protector.

4. What about stains that keep coming back? There is nothing that any Carpet Cleaning Company can do to prevent stains from reappearing. Stains that keep coming back are a result of spills such as coffee, pop or pet stains that have gone into the backing. The stain “wicks” its way up from the backing, through the carpet fiber and to the surface. If a stain is going to “wick” after cleaning, it will usually do so the following day. If this happens you can call the office at 918-254-4095 or 918-437-1956 to schedule an appointment for a technician to come out and remove the stain with our heat transfer process at a nominal charge.

5. If a stain comes back, how can I remove it myself? You will receive a complimentary bottle of spot cleaner. Mix the following together in a 1 quart size spray bottle. Mixture: 4 cap fulls of spot cleaner, 1 cup white distilled vinegar, then fill the bottle the rest of the way with warm water. Spray mixture on stain. Dampen a white terrycloth rag and wring out. Place dampened rag over stain. Using a household clothes iron on medium setting with steam on, place iron on rag and apply pressure for 20 seconds. Repeat process until stain is gone, rinsing out rag as needed. This process also works great on any future spills or pet stains! Be sure to clean off the bottom of your iron after each use.

6. How often do I need to have my carpet cleaned? Carpet manufacturers require that your carpet be cleaned by a professional using the steam cleaning method every 12 months in order to maintain the warranty. However, some heavily traveled areas such as hallways and other traffic areas may require more frequent cleaning. If you have children or pets, you may need to have your carpet cleaned more often.

I hope this article has helped you with some of the most common questions asked concerning carpet cleaning and what to expect after having your carpets cleaned. If you have any questions that may not have been covered feel free to contact us at out our Tulsa office @ (918) 437-1956 or visit us online @ www.carpetrenovations.com

How to Clean Carpet - Do's & Don'ts

Do's and Don’ts of Carpet Cleaning

There's a lot more to cleaning a carpet properly than most are aware of. In this article you will learn the best method, cleaning products, carpet cleaning tips, and much more. You will learn how to clean your carpet safely and without damage or if you choose to hire a carpet cleaning company you will have the knowledge to keep yourself in the know, making sure your carpets are cleaned correctly.

Do: Use the best method

Over the years carpet cleaning methods have come a long way; I still hear some use the expression "I need my carpets shampooed". Or something like "my carpets are starting to get dirty but I don’t want to clean them because they'll just get dirtier faster!" Shampooing your carpet is no longer a good choice for carpet cleaning and choosing the proper cleaning system is very important. Some systems may leave residues which accelerate re-soiling and defeat the whole purpose of cleaning.

Let’s start with the best method; Shaw industries, one of the leading carpet manufacturers recommends having your carpet cleaned using the hot water extraction system commonly referred to as "steam cleaning". You can rent a cleaning system like this at a local hardware store or hire a company that uses a truck mounted system. Their cleaning equipment has more extraction power than the rental units available to individuals, and the carpet should dry more quickly.

Don’t: Use the wrong cleaning products

I have seen individuals use carpet shampoos, liquid dish soap, and even household bleach. When cleaning the carpet yourself, you will want to find a good carpet pre-treat and carpet rinse. In my opinion the ones you find at the local hardware stores are not as effective as those you may find at a janitorial or carpet cleaning supply company. Yes, most carpet cleaning supply companies the professionals go to will sell to the general public, just be sure to read and follow all instructions on the labels. I would recommend purchasing one that says "Safe for Stain Resistant Carpet". When choosing a pre-treat be sure the pH is not higher than 9. If hiring a carpet cleaning company, make sure they do not use a high alkaline pH cleaner. A high pH cleaning agent cleans the carpet very quick and effectively but will strip your carpet of its stain blockers causing it to re-soil very rapidly. You can never go wrong using an eco-friendly green carpet product. They are very gentle, effective, and safe to use and a great choice for carpet cleaning.

8 Steps to Follow:

1. First, vacuum your carpet thoroughly with a household vacuum cleaner.

2. Mix the pre-treat according to directions in a 1 gallon sprayer then spray on carpet, using a little extra on heavy traffic areas making sure not to over wet the carpet. The pre-treat will loosen embedded soil making it much easier to extract out during the cleaning process.

3. You may also gently brush heavy traffic areas in front of sofas and of course in front of your favorite chair.

4. Next, add your carpet rinse solution to your extraction system and thoroughly extract the pre-treat and loosened soil from the carpet.

5. Make sure to vacuum over the heavy soiled areas several times with just the vacuum to remove as much moisture as possible.

6. Cut small squares of plastic or use Reynolds foil wrap to place under any furniture legs to prevent furniture or rust stains on your carpet.

7. To help your carpet dry faster turn on all ceiling fans and set your thermostat on 76 degrees with the fan switch turned "on" remember to turn it back to "automatic" later.

On cold or rainy days do not open windows, the air indoors will be dryer than that outside and there will be no place for the moisture to go.

8. If possible avoid walking on carpet until dry. Especially when going in and out of the house you wouldn’t want your children or pet to make a mess of your freshly cleaned carpets.

Do: Apply a Carpet Protector

Carpet Manufacturers recommended re-applying a carpet protector after cleaning especially in high traffic areas. Over a period of time carpet can lose its stain resistant qualities causing your carpet to soil more quickly and making it harder to keep clean. A carpet protector will put a "barrier" on your carpet fibers making it easier for you to vacuum up loose tracked in dirt and easily wipe away spills and other misfortunate accidents that may occur. There are several good carpet protectors on the market and can be purchased at your local carpet cleaning supply company along with a grooming brush. Again, I would recommend a Green Eco-friendly carpet protector. Follow mixing instructions, using a 1 gallon sprayer apply an even coat of the protectant to the carpet and then work the product into the carpet pile with a grooming brush.
