The Importance of Clean Carpet in the Nursery in Hoffman Estates

Carpeting is a great choice for a nursery. It adds warmth, comfort and style; and it provides a nice, soft place for your baby to crawl on. But carpeting does get dirty.

In fact, if you don’t keep your carpeting clean — especially in a nursery — it can become a hotspot for germs and a harbor for dirt. Are you wondering what can be hidden in your nursery carpeting? Read on.

Dirt

Even if you have a no-shoes policy in your home, dirt finds its way into carpeting from clothing, pets and most any item you bring in from the outside.

Dust

Most people think of dust accumulating on their furniture surfaces. The fact is that once you dust — no matter how carefully — some of the dust can fall on your carpeting.

Dander

If you have pets in your home, you know how much they can shed. Not only dog hair but also their microscopic dander can fall into the carpeting.

Food and drink

Inevitably someone will bring some edibles into the nursery. Food and drink are one of the biggest culprits of carpet stains.

Mold and mildew

If water and dirt get into your carpeting and sit for a period of time, they can create an ideal environment for mold and mildew.

Keeping the carpeting in your home clean is important, and even more so in the nursery. You don’t want your little bundle of joy crawling around on germs. Take the following precautions to keep your nursery carpeting clean:

  • Be sure to vacuum on a regular basis
  • Clean up any spills or stains that may happen right away
  • Try to keep food out of the nursery
  • To keep dirt at a minimum, keep slippers by your entryway door and insist on a no-shoes policy in the nursery
  • You should also have your carpets cleaned on a regular basis Choose a company that specializes in residential carpet cleaning

DIY Carpet Cleaning vs. Professional Carpet Cleaning Services – Highland Park, IL

If you are like many American homeowners, you know that spring is coming up soon and it’s time to think about spring-cleaning. One of the key priorities in spring-cleaning should be your flooring.

Winter brings in slush, sleet and dirt; and most of it winds up beneath our feet. Are you wondering the best route to go when getting your carpets cleaned, whether it’s prudent to hire a professional or try to tackle this task on your own? Here are some pros and cons of both.

Doing it yourself

One of the conveniences of cleaning your own carpeting is being able to do it during your own time. You can decide when it’s best for you to clean your carpets and what rooms you want to clean and when. This gives you some flexibility so you don’t have to get the job done all at once. You may also be the type of person that feels better when they do the job themselves. If you are that type, you may want to consider cleaning your carpets on your own.

Hiring a Pro

One of the benefits of hiring a professional residential carpet cleaning company is that you will get – of course – professionals. You don’t have to worry about moving large pieces of furniture, spending hours on a stubborn stain or questioning whether you are using the right products for your carpeting. It also frees up time for you to do other things around the house by having the pros come in and clean your carpet.

Before you consider hiring any professional carpet cleaning company, be sure they have the experience to get the job done. The Wiz Team has been serving the Highland Park area for more than 18 years.

FABRIC PROTECTION THAT REALLY WORKS – Algonquin, IL

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?

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 applyingan 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.
