Carpet Cleaning Tips in Huntington Beach
Tips on maintaining your carpets in the winter months
1-2 times per week vacuum with an effect device. Vacuum regularly and even more often depending on the traffic in your home and if you also have family pets. Focus your attention on the high traffic areas of your home. If your time is limited a Roomba is also a good option to make sure your floors are being regularly maintained.
Place clean mats at both the front and back doors of your home and replace them regularly. This will insure you are not tracking outside elements inside your home.
It is a good idea to keep vinegar and baking soda on hand for unexpected emergency spills. Clean up stains right away. The longer they remain in the carpet the more of a chance they will become permanent. This 50/50/50 mixture of vinegar, baking soda and hot water can be found by going on google. Always be sure to check with your carpet manufacture first to ensure it is safe to use on your type of carpet. Also remember when cleaning up a spill or stain to blot the area with a clean towel and remember not to rub the stain further into the carpet.
Get your carpets professionally cleaned at least once the fall/winter months to get rid of debris, dirt, bacteria, viruses, grime, dust mites and allergens. It is best to use a truck mounted system. Coastal Breeze Carpet Care uses a powerful truck mounted hot water extraction system and the temperature of our machines get well over 220 degrees!
Make sure to have your family pets bathe more regularly to ensure the outside elements stay where they belong- outside!
