Top Indicators It’s Time to Get Your Carpet Cleaned

You know it’s time to get your carpets cleaned when you experience these telltale signs.  Basically, these signs are your carpets speaking to you directly about their cleanliness!

Top 7 Indicators It’s Time For A Deep Clean:

  1. AAAAHHHH-CHOOO! tends to be a common theme in your house lately.  Your family and guests are sneezing more and more when they are in your house.  Why?  Your carpet is trapping allergens!  Professional strength cleaning will help to power out allergens and irritants
  2. You are playing the game “What’s That Smell?” more often than you would like to.  Dirty carpeting can hold on to odors.  When that happens, it is hard to get rid of the odors.  A professional carpet cleaning can help to refresh and deodorize your home.
  3. Your carpeting has more traffic patterns than the Veteran’s Expressway.  There seems to be a dark trail of foot traffic meandering through your home.  This means dirt and grime is present in your carpet’s fibers.
  4. Stains a plenty!  Do you see more spots and stains than you remember?  Even after you have done almost everything to remove them?  It’s time to call in the professionals to work on what just won’t come out.
  5. What color is that anyway?  Is it getting more an more difficult to recognize your carpet’s original color even after multiple attempts of vacuuming?  Another telltale sign that dirt has invaded carpet fibers. It’s gotten in so deep that standard household machines can no longer to the trick. 
  6. Is it time to re-name your carpet Matt?  You know what we’re talking about.  The fibers are no longer long and fluffy, but, short and, well, matted!  Don’t ignore the matted finish.  Call in the professionals before its too late!  The more your fibers stay matted, the more damage is done.
  7. Mold and mildew is present.  It has been a hot and rainy summer so far in Tampa!  These types of conditions are the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew.  Don’t let that happen to your carpet.  Ask us how we can help prevent damage caused by mold and mildew.

Don’t Fall Victim to These Top Carpet Cleaning Mistakes

Our homes are one of our BIGGEST investments and if well maintained, they will last a lifetime and can even create a legacy!  In this month’s blog post, we will explore the top carpet cleaning mistakes and how to avoid them so you get the BEST performance out of your carpeting.

Mistake #1

Over-Shampooing.  This is a common mistake made by Do-It-Yourselfers.  This one mistake can result in shampoo buildup and residue.  This residue can actually attract dirt, making the carpeting look even dirtier.  Solution:  Contact a professional to get the job done.

Mistake #2

Over wetting carpet.  Another common mistake made by Do-It-Yourselfers.  When a carpet is over-wet, several things can happen including creating a breeding ground for mold and mildew and causing the carpet to shrink and lift from the floor. 

Mistake #3

Staining.  In some cases stains can be caused by the furniture when it is returned to the carpeting without a protective layer. 

Mistake #4

Furniture damage can occur if the furniture is not removed from the room prior to cleaning and if foam blocks or foil backed cardboard squares are not used to protect the furniture during the final drying stage.

The best way to protect your carpet and get the best results is to contact a professional.  Curious about how we can help you have the best looking carpet?  Give us a call and we will give you a FREE quote.  Call us today:  727-364-5158 or learn more on our website: www.CompleteCareSystems.com

Tips and Tricks: Upholstery Cleaning

Image

Upholstery cleaning is something that Complete Care Systems loves to do! It is one of the major things that keeps your home happy and healthy. Why is that you ask? Well here are four reasons why this is one of the best things you could do for your home.

1. Appearance of your furniture. Nobody wants their upholstery to look dingy, gross, or worn down. The dirt in your upholstery makes your furniture look awful. Upholstery cleaning keeps your furniture looking nicer for a longer period of time, especially if it is new.

2. Extended wear on your furniture. Most people I know cannot afford to buy new furniture all the time, nor do they want to. Upholstery cleaning can help with the wear on your furniture by taking out all of the dirt and grime; making your furniture hold up through all of life’s adventures.

3. Family’s health. We love talking about how to be healthy in the comfort of your home! What stinks is that if you do not clean your upholstery your family’s health could be at risk. Think about what you do on your couch. From eating to sitting on it after a workout; your upholstery has a lot of bacteria in it from our everyday lives, which could cause your family to become sick. Did you ever think your kids could be getting sick from you and not from their friends? Yea, we didn’t either,

4.Good air quality. We all have excuses for why our air isn’t the cleanest. “We don’t have time to pay attention or the money for the machines” is something I always hear. Well did you know upholstery cleaning could help with the air quality in your home? Mold, dust, mildew, and even other allergens can live in your dirty upholstery. Getting it cleaned at least once a year can help your family breathe better.

As you can see upholstery cleaning has a lot of benefits to make your home happy and healthy. Call Complete Care Systems for all of your upholstery cleaning needs!
