How to get your home ready for carpet cleaning



CUSTOMER PREPARATION FOR CARPET CLEANING SHEET

Thank you for choosing our firm to clean your carpets! We want you to have the best job and experience the least amount of inconvenience. To accomplish this we need your cooperation in doing a little preparation for our cleaning visit:

1. Please do your normal vacuuming 1 – 2 days prior to our arrival, if possible.

2. Please remove
breakable items like tabletop lamps and brick-a-brack from furniture to be moved during the cleaning process. Our liability insurance does not allow us to handle these items or to move furniture with breakables in place.

3. Please remove small pieces of furniture, such as dining room chairs, ottomans and small tables from the areas that you plan to have us clean. Your cooperation helps us do a better job for you.

4. During the pre-cleaning inspection, please call to our technician's attention any cleaning concerns that you may have, particularly those regarding
spots or stains. The cleaning technician assigned to your job is trained in specialized spotting procedures. He or she can evaluate spots and make appropriate recommendations.

5.
China cabinets cannot be moved unless completely empty. The carpeting under large or awkward furniture can often be cleaned by hand if space permits.

6. Please let your family
pets know that our technicians will not bite! We would appreciate mutual consideration!

7. Please secure floor-length draperies on the window sill or drapery rod using coat hangers. This procedure prevents the fabric from directly contacting damp carpets during cleaning and drying of your carpet.

8. We use plastic tabs or foam blocks to
prevent furniture from absorbing moisture and staining damp carpets when items are returned to their normal location during the cleaning process. Please do not remove these protectors until carpets have thoroughly dried.

9. A special note about odors: We do everything possible to reduce or eliminate pet odors. However; due to depth of contamination, 100% success may not be attainable. Also, for several days after cleaning you may notice an elevated odor due to higher humidity levels. We do offer advanced optional levels of odor removal! Please ask your cleaning specialist for more information.

If you have antiques and other furniture that require special handling, please do not hesitate to let us know. Please advise our cleaning specialists of any furniture to be handled that has weak joints or loose parts. If you have any questions about our upcoming service, please give us a call at the number below. We want you to be completely satisfied with every aspect of our work!

Just attended a Webinar about Cleaning for Health in these difficult times

In these difficult times education is key. I just attended a webinar about cleaning and health in these difficult times. Clean environments are important. Dunne Cleaning has been around for over 51 years. We are constantly taking continuing education courses in our industry. We don't sit on our laurels here - thats why we are still here after all these years.

All equipment is sprayed with a disinfectant, sanitizer and virucide after each job. Our employees wear shoe covers and also wear gloves. We value your safety as we have for over 50 years.

Keeping our indoor environment is very important' especially since we are going to spend a greater amount of time there than we had previously expected. We talk all the time about the amount of time spent indoors in our home. Now we are taking that definition to a completely new level with this virus out there. So keeping our home clean is very important.

So what methods of cleaning in these difficult times are being recommended? Hot water extraction method. Why? Most to not all of the VLM (very low moisture) or dry methods do not flush out the carpeting. Rinsing the carpeting with fresh heated water and soap is the best way to get a cleaner environment. The VLM and dry methods do not flush the carpeting. These methods can possibly make your environment less healthy by stirring up the contaminants in your carpeting and not flushing them out. Our tried and true method flushes the carpeting and gives you a healthier home.

Vacuum Cleaner Maintenance

The job of the vacuum cleaner, whether in a home or office, is to pick up dirt, debris, particulate soil, hair, dander, virtually anything that lands on the carpet and must be removed. In the process, your vacuum cleaner eventually ends up needing a little cleaning attention itself.

When you empty the vacuum collection chamber or replace the vacuum bag, all of that dust, dirt, debris, and hair went into the port that contains the beater bar, and then through a hose, and most likely also through a filter or two.

Keep your vacuum cleaner in great working condition with these simple maintenance tips. Keep it safe and anytime you are working on your vacuum, make sure it is unplugged.

The bag or bin
Some vacuums have a chamber or bin that collects the dirt. If you have that type of vacuum, remove it and empty it frequently, even after each use. Wipe it out if you can and if the type warrants it, rinse it out with water and detergent. If you have a vacuum with a bag, keep an eye on how much dirt it is accumulating. It’s best to replace it when about half full, never more than 2/3 full. If your vacuum bag gets too full, the efficiency of the machine is drastically reduced.

The beater bar
Turn the vacuum over and inspect the beater bar and vacuum inlet assembly. This is where things might get a little gross as you have to physically pull and remove all the hair that has rolled up on the beater bar. Wear gloves. Pull the hair off and keep turning the beater bar until it is completely clean. Use scissors or a small, sharp knife if the hair is difficult to remove with just your bare fingers.

The filter(s)
You may need to refer to your owner’s manual for this. Find the filters and inspect according to manufacturer recommendations. Some filters need to be replaced; others can be cleaned. Air must pass through the filters so keep them in good condition. High-efficiency particulate air filters (HEPA) might need more attention than typical filters.

One great way to ensure vacuum cleaner efficiency is to have your favorite cleaning company inspect it the next time they work in your home. Call them today. After all, it pays to call a pro!

Spot and spill removal, is your cleaner up to the test?

Spot and spill removal can be very trying. I didn't say spot and stain, I said spot and spill. Remember the difference between a spot and a stain is that a stain is permanent and cannot be removed. The best way to work on spots and spills during the cleaning process is to wait. Why not scrub the spots before the cleaning process starts? The best way to insure spots come back is to work on the spots, loosen them up with spotter and let them sit or a good while. Understand that spotter loosens up spots, and after it loosens up the spots what happens to the spots? The spots then trickle down the fiber into the backing of the carpeting.

The longer the spotter and the spots sit without being rinsed the deeper the spotter and the spot go into the carpeting. Then when the carpeting is rinsed the spotter and the spot are into the backing and as the carpeting dries the spots reappear.

The best way to work on spots is to work on the spots during the cleaning process and rinse the spots immediately. Rinsing out the spotter and spot means you won't have spots returning. Deep spots and heavy spills can be impacted into the backing and pad below and can return but most spots will not if properly rinsed.

A little spotting knowledge goes a long way. Call a professional for those persistent spots.

Shampoo & Steam or Spray & Steam?

We like to shampoo and steam, a lot of our competitors spray and steam.

What does this mean?

We like to use a rotary shampoo machine to loosen and suspend soil in the carpeting. The shampoo works with a mild agitation, hitting all sides of the fibers. Then the carpeting is steam rinsed.

Our competitors like to pre spray a carpeting - meaning spray a product on top of the carpeting that is supposed to loosen on contact. Then use hot water extraction on the rug.

We believe that shampoo will do a better job of loosening soil and rinses cleaner than a pre spray. The rinse is the secret to long lasting results. Soap left in a carpeting attract dirt and leads to premature soiling.

We also clean furniture, rugs and air ducts. So when your ready to get your carpeting cleaned give us a call. Carpet cleaning page link.

Summer Time means Humidity and Odors

Why is it that odors we didn’t smell in the winter we smell now? Humidity brings out odors in your carpeting from past accidents. Humidity re activates that accident by your pet, child, maybe even some spilt milk. The spill or accident might have been cleaned from the surface but it is still lurking in your padding. The best way to attack this problem is with a professional cleaner. A professional cleaner cannot guarantee odor removal but he has certain methods to work with odor in the padding. I recommend working with a saturation method for odors in the pad. Mind you this is a method for spots not the entire carpeting.

We saturate a spot with an odor neutralizing solution, let the solution set for a little while so the solution settles into the pad, then the pad is extracted with a sub floor extractor to draw out the odor neutralizing solution. We have had good success with this method for odor removal.

If you wouldn't wait 2 years to change your sheets? Why wait so long to clean your carpeting?

You should clean you're carpeting annually. Higher trafficked rooms more frequently. Carpet warrantees specify that the carpet must be cleaned at least once every 18 months or the warrantee is voided. We drop skin, hair, dirt, etc into the carpeting. A cleaning with a rinse is not just recommended for warrantee but also for good health. When your ready give us a call . Carpet cleaning page.

Whats lurking in your carpeting?

They didn't think I could get it clean and I did!

Quality carpet cleaning is hard to find. People are bombarded by flyers on a daily basis and who should I choose? I always say referrals are the best source to finding quality companies. The age of a business can also be a good indicator, longevity is rarely luck or by accident.

In these difficult times make sure you hire a quality company because there is a difference between saving money and wasting money.
