Tips for keeping your carpets clean this holiday season!

The holiday season is great, aren’t they? Catch up with relatives from far and near. Your carpets probably don’t love it, considering the annual wine spills, mud tracks and outside debris which will make its way in. Here’s ways to keep the spills and stains to a minimum:
 
  • Hire an experienced professional such as Spencer's Chem-Dry to apply a protectant on your carpet. What’s the true secret to blasting red wine stains out of your carpet, efficiently and quickly? By finding a professional to apply tough protectant on your carpet, of course! Plan for the holidays (and all sorts of spills and stains associated with your holiday gatherings) with the help of Spencer's Chem-Dry apply a stain resistant treatment to your carpets that includes stain blockers to be sure that soils have nowhere to soak in and will easily be rinsed off your carpets. Contact your local Spencer's Chem-Dry, and allow the professionals to get your most vulnerable and high traffic areas ready to be successful right before the food staining opportunities of this holiday season begin.
  • Notify the guests to leave their shoes at the door. One of many quickest and most effective ways to avoid mud, dirt and bacteria that lives outdoors from getting into your home is by establishing a shoe station at your entrance. With those out-of-state family members that are coming for a visit, inform them (along with a smile) their footwear is safe in your own home-by the front door. Surely they’ll recognize the pride you possess for your carpets, and odds are good, they’ll be more than happy to oblige.
  • If the weather is warm enough, bring the party outdoors! Certain parts of the country are lucky enough to have mild winter weather. If you reside in Texas, Arizona or California, you most likely are one of the few that are able to comfortably host a ‘winter wonderland’ themed party outdoors!

Prepare for the holidays by contacting Spencer's Chem-Dry, the cleaning experts you can rely on! They provide a ‘tough on stains, healthy for your home’ carpet solution and protectant which will help keep the spills and stains away-no matter exactly how many visitors you could have!

How to protect your carpet with the season change

 

 

With the weather turning cooler and leaves are changing color, the autumn months are also bringing rain…and a great deal of it! While it usually is an excellent time for early evening walks and colorful foliage, it's not at all the prettiest time for your carpets! The rainy season often means wet, dirty, and muddy carpets. Not to fret…there are plenty of actions you can take to guard your carpets with the rainy weather that accompanies the autumn season.

Make sure that anyone who enters your home removes their shoes by your entry way. This will alleviate a great deal of dirt and mud from being tracked within your home on people’s shoes. If you have pets, you should also wipe their paws before enabling them to enter your home.

Also, it is advisable to invest in rugs and door mats. By placing door mats at each of the entryways, you are able lower the amount of grime that comes directly into the home. It is a good reminder for guests to wipe their feet. You can place decorative rugs in hallways, entryways, besides other high traffic areas. This is an easy and inexpensive way to protect your carpets from stains. Rugs are much easier to clean and can oftentimes be washed in the washing machine.

Another
root cause of soiling and stains is high humidity. When there's a high level of moisture in the air, it is more likely that soils and stains can set into your carpets. You can avoid this problem by using fans or air-conditioners to reduce the moist air in your home.

Filtration Lines - January 19 2015

Over time, the corners of the carpet along the wall become discolored. These areas are called filtration lines and they are especially prominent on light-colored carpet.

How did I get filtration lines?

It is true that the vacuum cannot reach the edges of the carpet well, but that is only one piece of the problem. Air flow is allowed through the small spaces between the boards and this is impossible to avoid even in the best built homes. Often, underneath walls and doors, air passes through these spaces due to a shift caused by temperature and pressure differences in the home. Any debris that the air may be carrying gets caught in the carpet as it passes through the boards, the carpet acting as a filter. The carpet becomes soiled over time when microscopic dirt, dust, oil, and other debris accumulate as time passes.

How can I get rid of filtration lines?

In order to eliminate the filtration lines, proper equipment is needed. The process required to eliminate the dark edges is one of deep cleaning, agitation, and the correct cleaning solution. The professionals at All Clean Chem-Dry have the correct training to rid your home of the filtration line problem. With our powerful, yet gentle, solution, we are able to break up the dirt, grime, and oils that are locked in the carpet and lift them to the surface where they can be removed permanently. Your home will be able to stay cleaner much longer because we stay away from solutions that will leave behind any dirt attracting residue.

The professionals at All Clean Chem-Dry can be trusted to provide your home or business with the most satisfactory cleaning service in the area. Call now to set up a carpet cleaning appointment with the experts!

The Top 5 Scariest Things Hiding in Your Carpet

Think about this: every day, you walk on your carpet, your pets play on it and your kids crawl on it. Just how safe do you think that is? Just in time for Halloween – or, just after Halloween – we’ve made a list of the 5 scariest things hiding in your carpet that a vacuum cleaner can’t get rid of.

5. Allergens.  If you’re like over half of the population in the United States, you suffer from allergies – and if you don’t, chances are that someone in your family does. Few people know that carpet virtually acts as an allergen storage unit, allowing them to be active in your home all year round and make you continually miserable.

4. Chemicals. You can’t even imagine how many harmful substances are lodged in your carpet fibers – and it doesn’t just happen over time. New carpets typically house formaldehyde, toluene, styrene, acetone and benzene, some of which are even considered to cause cancer by the EPA. Even the new carpet smell that everyone loves is caused by 4-PC, a chemical that is known to cause eye and respiratory problems.

3. Mold. Even though steam cleaning can potentially help your carpet in some ways, mold prevention is not one of them. During the steam cleaning process, gallons of water are dumped on to your carpet, pushing dirt and grime deep down into your padding and creating a breeding ground for mold and bacteria underneath your carpet.

2. Bacteria. If you can believe it, the bottom of your shoes carry more bacteria than a toilet seat. Do you wear your shoes when you’re walking on your carpet? If so, you’re tracking millions of kinds of bacteria, harmful or not, onto your carpet, not to mention what your kids and pets bring into the house on a daily basis. Yikes.

1. Dust Mites.  And you thought spiders were scary! Just look at that thing. There’s no wonder this tops our list of the scariest things living in your carpet. These things are what scientists call cosmopolitan pyroglyphidae, and they live in your carpet and survive on flakes of your skin. Aside from being incredibly creepy, they are a common cause of allergic and asthma symptoms throughout the world and can induce wheezing. Disgusting, huh?

Even though those are pretty scary things to have living in your home, there’s no reason to worry. Chem-Dry uses an all-natural process that is safe for your home and that reduces the risk of mold and bacteria, in addition to the fastest dry times on the market. Give us a call and let us help you get rid of what’s been hiding in your carpet.


 

Clean for the Holidays - October 13 2014

Chem-Dry's innovative solutions offer an unparalleled cleaning experience. We offer fast and effiecient cleaning solutions that will not inconvenience your daily life. The Chem-Dry solution rips the dirt from your carpet and dries in hours. Chem-Dry has set the bar for the carpet cleaning industry. We have created a unique process using millions of carbonating bubbles to bring your carpets back to life.

If you have ever poured a carbonated soda into a glass you have experienced the foundation of what Chem-Dry is. The carbonation in the soda naturally wants to rise to the top, when applied to your carpets the bubbles grab dirt and bring it to the surface to be taken away. Our incredible solutions remove all unwanted particles from your carpet completely, providing you with the most thorough – and the most satisfying clean – available anywhere.

Instead of using a specialized solution and technique, steam cleaners use immense amounts of water and high pressure as the key to their cleaning process. This method drives dirt and moisture down into your carpet, hiding the mess rather than cleaning it, and creates a breeding ground for mold and other bacteria. Because of the excessive water used in this process, your carpets also typically take 1-2 days to dry. Since Chem-Dry uses the least amount of water possible, however, your carpets will be dry within just 1-2 hours. That means in the time it takes for your carpets to dry once after a steam cleaning, they would have dried 24 times if cleaned the Chem-Dry way. That’s effective cleaning provided by Chem-Dry.

We are proud to offer you these amazing services at a price that will fit with your budget. To get the best carpet cleaning available, call us today!


 

Home Remedies - September 10 2014

Even though having your carpets professionally cleaned is quick and helpful, it's also helpful to know when to call the cleaners. Most cleaners will tell you to use their service for every stain or spot, but many of these blemishes will come out using one of several simple home remedies. At Chem-Dry, however, you are our first priority. Here are a few things most carpet cleaning companies won't tell you.

Surprisingly, one of the best solutions to stains and spots is simply hot water and a white towel. Just dampen the stain and blot it with your cloth. If hot water doesn’t work, the next step is to try club soda. Because of its carbonated properties – which is the same principle behind the Chem-Dry solution – club soda also makes an excellent cleaner. Again, just dampen the carpet fiber and blot, checking for any transfer of the stain to your white towel.

If this doesn't provide any results, then it's a job for Chem-Dry. The groundbreaking techniques used by Chem-Dry remove particles from individual fibers and then lift them out of your carpet, making us the best choice for all stain removal. When home remedies don't work, call the professionals at Chem-Dry!
