4 Tips for Professional Cleaning in Austin

Fortunately our flooring throughout our homes lasts for years and years to come, but unfortunately this makes stains (over time) inevitable. You’re probably familiar with this scenario: shattering as a glass of wine tumbles to the floor. The spill splashes everywhere- the carpet, the couch, your clothes… Don’t panic! We’ve got just the tips for you.

 

Don’t Leave Anything Behind

 

The biggest problem homeowners face when they’re dealing with stains is the amount of residue left behind from the initial incident. The best way to avoid lasting stains or anything permanent, is to ensure that nothing is left behind after the spill. If you’re dealing with a solid mess, you can easily pick it up with any utensil, paper towel, bag, or even cloth and then blot away anything that may be remaining.

 

Do NOT Scrub

 

So often we see stains that have been scrubbed further into carpet fibers or grout because of how they were handled initially. It’s extremely important that you never scrub spills or messes because it will only push them further into the flooring -- always, always, always blot away any excess!

 

Use Homemade Cleaner

 

Be sure to use a cleaner that will work with the mess you’re dealing with. Homemade cleaners aren’t always going to do the trick, especially for stains like pet urine. However, a generally good solution to use for most spills or messes is made by combining 1 tsp. dish soap, ¼ tsp. white vinegar, and 4 cups warm water.

For rugs in high traffic areas, it’s best to rotate them periodically. Try doing it once every two to three months. Doing so will help distribute the wear and tear more evenly, which will keep your rug looking more uniform and aesthetically appealing! Rug cleaning plant located at 9901 Burnet Rd.

Avoid Sunny Areas

 

The sun is notorious for causing fading and discoloration in oriental rugs and carpets. To prevent this from happening, rotate your rugs on the regular like we mentioned before, or place them in areas where the sunlight won’t be an issue! You can also hang blinds and shades to help with blocking out the sun.

 

Vacuum, Vacuum, Vacuum

 

We’re sorry to say it, but, you’re not going to get out of this one, friends! Excess traffic can cause the carpet fibers in a rug to become matted down, but vacuuming can help with this! Vacuum once a week to pick up dirt, dust mites, dander, allergens, and more.

 

Utilize Carpet Padding

 

If you place padding underneath your oriental rug, you can help to reduce wrinkling, preserve its shape, and keep it stabilized!
