Carpets Seen Better Days? Excellent Tips For Hiring A Carpet Cleaning Company!

460548769
Have you ever made a mistake when cleaning your own carpets? Perhaps you have hired a bad company to do it for you in the past. Whatever the case may be, this time around you want to get it right. Continue reading to learn more about finding a competent carpet cleaning service.

You need to make sure your carpet can withstand the carpet cleaner’s chemicals and machinery. It’s essential that your cleaning company test your carpet for steadfastness. Silk and wool rugs may get damaged during the cleaning process. If you don’t feel up to cleaning your carpet, why not hire a pro?

If a carpet cleaning company quotes you a price simply based on the number of rooms in your house, be aware that they might not be completely on the up and up. Houses vary greatly in size. Your living room could be substantially smaller (or bigger) than someone else’s room. Therefore, most reputable companies will give you a price based on your square footage.

Make sure any company you hire to clean your carpets is insured. Accidents can and do happen. For this reason, you want to make sure your home and belongings are covered in case something unexpected happens. Most legitimate companies are insured, but it never hurts to ask and make sure.

You need to try a trial and error method to find the company that suits your needs. There are different types of products available for different types of carpets. If you find a product that workers out well for you, stick with it for as long as you can.

You don’t want to suffer through paying extra money just to fix mistakes made by a carpet cleaning service that doesn’t get the job done. Instead, you want to get everything done the first time at the right price. Remember everything you’ve read so that you can make the right decision.


Our Spring Cleaning List – Starting With Your A/C

186275869
Spring cleaning makes things so fresh. Besides the usual closet clean out and window wash, the air conditioning system also requires a routine inspection.

Here’s Our List For Spring Cleaning:

-Before the season starts, check the air system. The filters in the air conditioner should be changed each month if one is using a fiberglass filter. Other filters, such as a Hepa filter can last up to six months if it is routinely vacuumed.

-Air conditioners have a drainage opening at the bottom of the unit under the evaporator fins. Use something small to clear the opening to ensure it is unblocked.

-Dehumidifiers also need attention. Remove the outer housing and allow it to dry completely before using a vacuum cleaner on all surfaces and gaps.

-Bathroom fans should be turned off before removing the outer cover to wash in warm, soapy water. Wipe the fan blades and if necessary, use a toothbrush to clean them. Reassemble when everything is dry.

-Flappers on toilets are inexpensive to replace, but costly water bills will mount if a worn one allows water to run. Check them yearly and replace before they leak.

-Faucet handles corrode with rust if not attended first. Remove and scrub inside.

186320358-At least twice a year, clean carbon monoxide and smoke detectors. Dust, vacuum inside and replace the batteries. A good way to remember to do it is when the time changes.

-Have a household sized charged fire extinguisher available.

-Check all the windows to be certain they close and open properly. If they need weather stripping, do it before the weather changes.

-Caulk outdoors in the spring or fall.

-Take window screens outside to clean in the spring and fall. Rub with kerosene then wash with soap and water and allow to dry.

-If there are any small holes in screens make repairs with a toothpick and household cement. (Not on plastic.) If there is a larger hole or tear, use masking tape to hold one side while you apply the cement on the other side. Reverse the application when it has set.

-Clean and repair gutters.

-Rake soil close to the foundation to build up a retention against erosion and water leakage.

It will not be difficult to prevent expensive repairs and unpleasant surprises when applying maintenance at the right times of the year.
