DIY Tricks from the experts
Its no secret that the majority of carpet cleaning companies use chemicals when cleaning carpets. The chemical residues left after the cleaning has been performed accumulates over time and the end result is a film coating the individual carpet fibers. This chemical residue can even attract and combine with dirt and grime causing carpets to become dirty again even more quickly. People with allergies are usually extra sensitive to this chemical residue and they are the ones that suffer the most. In this blog post, we have compiled some tips for green conscious San Diegans and hope that the information provided offers insight into some effective green cleaning techniques used by responsible professionals. Steam Cleaning Steam cleaning without chemical additives is the best and most effective way to loosen deep embedded grime hiding deep within your carpet. Hot steam works by loosening and breaking apart dirt and grime so that a vacuum can suck up the remaining particles. It is important to either have a very high powered wet vacuum or to hire a professional with a truck mounted vacuum system. Truck mounted carpet cleaning systems provide the most powerful suction available and when combined with a steam cleaning approach, there simply is no better way to clean carpets. Dry vacuuming Vacuuming your carpet regularly can prevent the buildup of dust, dirt, grime and other foreign debris. Good vacuums filter all of the air that is released back out into the room. One easy way to know if your vacuum needs to be replaced is if you can smell a peculiar aroma as you are vacuuming. This smell that comes out of the vacuum is essentially particles of fine dust that would have been removed by a better filter. The best vacuums are able to pull the most dirt out of the carpet and release pure air back into the room because of their quality filters. Vinegar The use of vinegar to spot treat stains is a very effective and little known secret that can work wonders on your carpet. Start out by using a solution of half vinegar and half water and apply it to stains. Next, wait a few minutes for the solution to soak in and once the solution has had plenty of time to soak in, remove it by dabbing it with a damp sponge soaked in soap and water.
