CARE & MAINTENANCE
WE SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY
It’s important to keep your floor at the right temperature and humidity. If you are comfortable, it is likely that it is right for the floor.
Temperatures should stay between 60-80 degrees Fahrenheit and relative humidities should hover around 35 – 50%. And don’t forget doormats…they’ll help collect dirt so no one has to endure dirty floors while being offered an excellent service.
Area rugs are the perfect solution for protecting your new floor from traffic, spills and other hazards that tend to come with a busy household. You’ll find different materials available like wool, cotton, nylon etc., but rubber backed area rugs should be avoided because they can cause staining around sink drains due to moisture retention – plus it will also slide around on hardwood floors without non-slip pads! If you want carpet feel choose instead an indoor-outdoor type felt pad (without metal parts) which provides cushioning under furniture legs while preventing scratches on the surface of the floor.
Rolling heavy objects across a surface can cause damage so take care when moving them around in order to prevent any accidents. Doing routine maintenance by vacuuming weekly is important for keeping everything clean; however, do not use the machine with an upright-style nozzle (e.g., “beater bar”), which can leave scratches in some hardwood floors and linoleum designs – it’s best to choose one that has bristles instead of brushes on the end. The best way to clean a laminate floor is with Basic Coatings Squeaky Clean or Bona Hardwood cleaner. These products will get the stubborn stains off your floors and keep them looking new.
Here are a few tips to keep your carpet looking good for years.
- Don’t track dirt inside
- Use good quality carpet pad
- Occasionally move heavy furniture
- Reduce exposure to direct sunlight
- Regularly clean area rugs
The right vacuum can be the key to a successful carpet cleaning. Use it in tandem with your favorite household cleaner and know-how for best results!
If you need a spot removal solvent, use one that is approved by The Carpet and Rug Institute of America. Apply several drops to a clean white cloth and blot the carpet in an inconspicuous area for quick results! If any change of color occurs on your rug after applying, consult with a professional cleaner immediately. Should stains remain even when cleaned, dampen tufts in the stained area with 3% hydrogen peroxide until it turns into foam or bubbles; this means then bacteria are being killed off which will leave no residual odor left behind once dried out again.
This is especially true with carpets where there might already be some wear and tear like burnt areas which will become even worse over time by continuing down the same path instead of taking care immediately.
If you want to get rid of those pesky dents in your carpet, put a coin on the dent and then use light pressure with it. You can also try using an electric hair dryer or a steam iron but be careful not to touch the fabric because that could damage it! If you are experiencing water damage from flooding for example, talk with professional cleaners who will know how best to dry out each section individually.
