Simple Home Cleaning Tips

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, May 31, 2018 @ 02:13 PM

Crumbs on the kitchen counter, dust on the TV, gunk in the bathroom sink — We can't stand our houses when they are a mess. But the thought of spending an entire day cleaning it from top to bottom sends me running to the sofa for a nap. After all, in a week, it's just going to get dirty again.

Here are three simple home cleaning steps to help curb those nagging feelings:

Set cleaning to auto or leave it to the professionals

Make friends with the latest effort-saving cleaning tools and products, such as robotic vacuum cleaners and floor washers, and self-cleaning cat boxes, which rake cat poop into cartridges that you replace every week or so. An automatic shower cleaner spiffs up your shower at the touch of a button, and self-cleaning toilet bowl cleaners scrub your toilet every time you flush. We also suggest calling in a professional to help with your cleaning needs, like your rugs, carpets, upholstery and tile & grout.

Sweat the small stuff & zap the dirt fast

Clean drips as soon as they occur, before they dry or soak into surfaces or carpet & rugs. When you spill on your range top or carpet, quickly run a damp sponge over the (hot) surface - before it stains. Dust often so it doesn't have a chance to build up and harden in corners and crevices.

Pick a focus room & clean in short bursts

Spend another 10 minutes cleaning one room. Clean a different room every day, so eventually your whole house gets attention. Look at the top, middle and bottom of the room, and pretend you're seeing it for the first time. Tackle the tasks you don't always get to, like removing cobwebs and dusting plants.

When the Iconic New York Steak House – Sparks needs to restore the carpet in it’s very busy restaurant they turn to Rug Renovating. We recently did a restoration cleaning to what was an extremely solid carpet. We sent a six man crew early on a Sunday morning and by 2:00 pm we were done and out of the facility so they could open for their dinner crowd.

Rug & Carpet Soiling and Soil Management

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Fri, Apr 28, 2017 @ 10:58 AM

Clients ask us how they can keep their rugs and carpets cleaner between professional cleanings. Here are some ideas that can help. Soil can be defined simply as unwanted matter that is foreign to the construction of the textile floor covering. Most tracked-in soils are insoluble which means that they cannot be removed by cleaning with detergent and water. The best way to deal with this type of soil is to not allow it to enter the home, or capture it inside entrances using matts, area rugs and other types of items.

It is also very important to keep the outside your home as clean as possible. Sidewalks, porches, driveways, steps and landings, all outside your home, should be kept clean and free of dirt and soil. This can be accomplished by sweeping, power washing, air blower, hose rinsing etc, all the areas regularly.

Walk off matts and outdoor matts are your first line of defense. These are usually made of rough and tough fabrics designed to remove snow, mud, sand and dirt from the bottom of shoes.

Next are the interior mats, rugs and runners that are more decorative and match or compliment the look of your home and take the brunt of soil after the outside barriers.

Studies show that you need approximately 4 – 6 steps on outdoor and indoor matting and rugs to remove the dirt and soil from the bottom of shoes. That equates to about 8 to 12 feet.

Both the interior and exterior matts, rugs and carpets need thorough and consistent cleaning and vacuuming. The outside matts can be vacuumed and can usually be washed and hung to dry by the homeowner. The interior matts, area rugs and runners need constant vacuuming and are usually professionally cleaned by Rug Renovating in our cleaning facility and returned to the home. Remember, if you keep the dirt and soil out of your home you will not have to clean it out!!
