Fabric Protection that Really Works (Accurate Care Services, Inc)
DID YOU KNOW that one of the best ‘feel good’ experiences you can enjoy is having freshly-cleaned carpet or furniture?

And one of the most frustrating experiences you won’t enjoy is when, within just a few days, something like red wine, coffee or tea is spilled on that freshly-cleaned carpet or furniture.

This is not good!

So you feverishly apply all kinds of household cleaning products and scrub in desperation. That spot does look a little better but it is still there. You have an important appointment so you give up. When coming home a few hours later… it has grown! (This is another mystery and you might want to ask your carpet cleaning pro why this happens.)

All of this drama could have been avoided if you had asked for fabric protection when you had your carpet or furniture cleaned. You know, like Scotchgard or Teflon or some of the other products available to consumers.

Yes, fabric protection does cost a little bit more but… it’s worth it!

 

How does it work? (Accurate Care Services, Carpet Cleaning)

Fabric protection is quite a mystery to many, but basically what it does is act as a kind of invisible shield that repels most substances that are spilled.

You might compare this to waxing a car. You are providing protection to your paint job by applying an invisible shield, and you know it is working because you can see water beading up on the surface.

Carpet and furniture fabrics need the same type of protection.

Besides the obvious immediate benefit of cleaning up fresh spills, you can rest assured that a protected carpet or piece of furniture is going to last longer because when something is clean, it performs better and increases the lifetime of the fabric.

This doesn’t mean you can skip regular cleaning. Anything that is dirty will wear out prematurely. Fabric protection enhances a good cleaning. It’s an added step that you want for your carpet and furniture in your home.

So you want peace of mind? The next time you have your carpet or furniture cleaned, ask for protection. You will like it… and so will your carpet and furniture.

Keep ‘Em Fresh!

June 13th, 2015 • By: Joseph Roman Blog, Carpet Cleaning, Cleaning

Fresh is always best, right? And that’s especially true of something special and valuable in your home — fresh, cut flowers.

Flowers make a great gift and everyone enjoys them. What’s frustrating is how quickly they begin to wilt and look tired and… then they look more like weeds than flowers.

There are a lot of tips and tricks you can try to keep flowers fresh longer. No scientific evidence, but easy things you can try at home.

You know those little packets of powder that comes with fresh cut flowers? The little packet your florist includes for free? It’s basically sugar – so if you don’t have some of those packets, just dump in a tablespoon or so of white sugar. The powdered sugar variety might be best since it will dissolve easier in water. Even cut flowers need a little nourishment, and who doesn’t like sugar?

Keeping the water acidic is also a tip some pros endorse. Acidity is vital to plant growth, so adding an ounce or two of white vinegar might make those flowers look their best longer.

The Clorox company recommends ¼ teaspoon of bleach for each vase of flowers, saying the bleach disinfects and keeps the water clear and free of that smelly slime we all experience after a few days on the counter.

Another way to make flowers look better longer is kind of cheating. Some florists say to use hairspray on the underside of the petals and leaves. Obviously, this keeps them from drooping too much.

No matter which tip, trick or urban legend you use for your flowers, the best advice is simple: Change the water in the vase daily, and enjoy those fresh, cut flowers as long as you can!

Why clean your carpets, and how to choose a carpet cleaner

October 24th, 2010 • By: Joseph Roman Blog, Carpet Cleaning, Cleaning, Fire Restoration, News, Odor Control, Restoration, Water Extraction

Your carpet is one of the most important and biggest investments in your home. It is important to make sure to preserve it by keeping it clean and doing maintenance on a regular basis. Vacuuming will only help so much, by removing dirt and dust which is not enough if you want to get what’s worth out of your carpets.

Clean carpets will last longer when properly maintained. Dirt is an abrasive and will ruin your carpeting. Every step you take the soil in your carpets grinds it into the fibers. This can permanently damage your carpet, and wear it out quicker. You should get your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year to make sure that the microorganisms found in your carpet are removed. If you have children and/or pets in your home then you should have your carpets cleaned every six months.  Appearance is another reason to keep your carpets maintained properly. A clean floor makes everything look better. When you have guest over you don’t want to present them with a dirty floor. Also a clean floor shows people that you care about your home and its appearance.

One of the most important reasons to have and keep your carpets cleaned it for the health of you and yours. Health professionals sometimes recommend that allergy and asthma patients remove carpets from their homes. But those recommendations are generally based on faulty assumptions. In fact, clean, dry, well maintained carpets actually improved air quality. Carpets are like a trap for air borne particles grounded through natural gravity. Professional test labs have studied and their findings show that walking on hard surfaces distributed more particles then carpet, simply because particles are locked down into the carpet and hard floor surfaces let the particles go air borne which results in going into the breathing zones.

How to choose a carpet cleaner. When deciding on a carpet cleaning company to clean your carpets there are a few important questions you should ask yourself and the company before you hire them.

The professionalism of the company

The companies previous customers

The companies protection policies

The cleaning process

The workmanship guarantee

Ask the company if they and the employees are IICRC certified, then ask them to tell you a little about it, for example “what exactly is the IICRC?” If they do not respond with an intelligent answer there is a good chance that company is not certified. Also the companies’ previous customers are a good source to get information on the company. You may review there testimonials on their website, or look for any bad reports online.

Is carpet in schools safe for the children?

Many people have questioned if the carpeting in schools is safe or could it be an aid to the respiratory problems, allergies, and asthma some children are developing. Although all of these concerns have come to be unproved, the question is still at large. Recently the HICPAC( Healthcare infection control practices advisory) have found that carpets in schools improve indoor air quality because it captures and holds dirt, contaminants and allergens would become airborne if there was no carpets in the schools. In the late 80’s carpets were banned from schools in Sweden. The asthma rates escalated. However whether carpets should be in schools or not is a highly sensitive topic to discuss.  Every opinion should be based on Facts, and studies.

Benefits of carpeting in schools

Carpeting reduces slip and falls

Less glare, therefore improved sight

Reduces noise

Enhances comfort, walking on cushion rather than hard floor reduces fatigue in the legs.

Both hard surface floors and carpeted floors have their advantages and dis-advantages for schools. Hard surface floors can provide an easy surface to clean up spills, but some chemical cleaners can cause asthma symptoms, and any reused bucket water can cause assist in air quality problems.

Carpet that is properly installed and maintained can last up to 10 years longer than a hard surface floor. A “life cycle cost analysis for floor covering in school facilities” conducted by the IICRC, found that carpet is 65% less expensive to maintain than hard floor surfaces.
