Hiring a Professional Carpet Cleaner Hiring a carpet cleaner can take a load off your mind, as a homeowner you have a lot of up keep for your home. Having one last task can take a load off your mind. You mow the lawn, dust and do minor repairs. If you have carpeting, then you vacuum it weekly if not more, but to really keep it deep cleaned you should get a good professional cleaning every 3-4 months. The question then becomes, “How do you find a good carpet cleaning service?” If you are hiring a Carpet Cleaner in Windsor ON area, here are some things you should know to aid you in your search for Carpet Cleaning Services. Why Should I Have My Carpets Professionally Cleaned? Hiring a carpet cleaner can help protect the health of your family. According to the EPA, a dirty carpet can retain all sorts of pollutants. Those pollutants can then get into the air through regular use such as walking across it and even vacuuming. A good deep cleaning can also get rid of dust mites and help prevent mold growth. Decide On A Budget Once you decide on hiring a carpet cleaner, you should set a budget for the service. Also decide if you are only hiring a carpet cleaner or if you would also like furniture cleaning services as this will affect how much you spend. Having a ball park figure in mind can help you narrow down the list of which carpet cleaning services you can choose from. You would hate to decide on one company only to find out you can not afford their service or that you can not afford the services you want. Most companies should have a website which can be found through a regular internet search. Avoid the Cheapest Option Just because one company offers the least expensive service, does not mean that they are the best. It could mean that they skimp on quality. They could be offering you a bait and switch routine. It could also be their way of getting a foot in the door. Once they arrive they will identify other problems that need to be fixed. It will be worth your time to check reviews to find out what you are getting. Check Customer Reviews There are many service directory websites that will offer ratings of the companies that are listed in their directory. One or two bad reviews may be balanced out by 100 good reviews, but if 60% of reviews are not favorable, that says something about the company.

Last Minute Spring Cleaning Tips in Essex County Ontario Spring was beautiful this year in Windsor & Essex County, Ontario, and it’s finally time for summer fun to begin! If you’re running late on spring cleaning projects, it’s not too late. I’m here to share some great carpet and upholstery cleaning tips that will help you to get and keep your carpets and upholstery clean and fresh. Six Furniture and Carpet Cleaning Tips Windsor  Vacuum Regularly It’s so important to stay on top of cleaning your carpets and upholstery because regular vacuuming will prevent them from becoming unnecessarily soiled, oily and stained. If you hit the floor running and vacuum your carpets and upholstery daily or bi-weekly, you will protect your home from dust, dirt and mold.  Set Your Vacuum to the Right Height Be sure to set your vacuum at the right height because if it is too low, it will damage the carpet and the vacuum’s roller brush. If the vacuum is set too high, it will bypass much of the dirt, and your vacuum cleaning will be unsuccessful. To configure the correct height for the vacuum cleaner, raise the vacuum to its highest setting and turn it on. Now, lower the vacuum level until you feel it being propelled slightly forward.  Use a Clean Vacuum Bag or Filter Each time you vacuum, check to be sure that the bag is no more than three-quarters full. Replace or wash the filter every three months if you have a bagless vacuum, and always empty the vacuum after cleaning the carpets and upholstery in each room.  Use an Appropriate Vacuuming Speed To a properly pick up the dirt and soil, operate the vacuum at the appropriate speed. For example, you can quickly pass over low traffic areas, and make multiple, slow passes over high-traffic areas. Making just two slow passes over ground-in dirt is far more efficient than making multiple quick passes over the same area.  Place Mats Inside and Outside of Each Entrance Using mats inside and outside of your home is very helpful and will keep your carpets from becoming soiled. Coarsely textured mats should be placed outside of each of your home’s entrances. Course mats will remove excess soil before the shoes touch the interior carpeting. Water absorbent mats should be located inside of each door because these mats will collect the moisture and any mud from wet shoes.  Treat and Clean up All Spills and Stains Quickly Spills on your carpet or upholstered furniture should be cleaned up immediately. If there are solid foods on top of the surface, remove them with a spoon or a knife working from the middle of the...
