Cleaning your carpets?? Things you should know...

  • For the finest clean, move the furniture to the centre of the room. Clean the outer limits first, move the furniture back in place and then clean the center of the room. To get best results, remove all the furniture from the room until the carpet dries are fully.
  • Use a normal dry vacuum cleaner and vacuum the section you want to clean to remove loose dirt.
  • Pre-treat the affected areas with the appropriate cleaning products.
  • For generally soiled carpets, rug machines are designed such that they deep clean and remove all the dirt in one cleaning pass. 
  • Avoid over-wetting the carpet. Don't run the machine over heavily soiled spots more than twice – especially for multi-level/looped carpets as they hold more liquid. If additional cleaning is desired, allow carpets to dry before attempting to re-clean heavily soiled areas. 
  • You should pull through nearly two-third tank of dirty water for each tank of clean water used, depending on the type of carpet you have.
  • Open the windows and doors for faster drying. 
  • To prevent stains on the carpet, place aluminum foil under the legs of the furniture, if you intend replacing the furniture before the carpet is completely dry.

Fire damage Restoration

The fire, smoke and water damage that typically follow a fire will not be fun to have to tend to, however since most of us cannot buy a professional cleaner and take care of these things for us, we generally have to do this on our own. A lot of us that have to deal with this at some point in our existence ordinarily ad-lib, but if you educate yourself prior to attempting to begin this necessary household improvement plan, you can make it fine.

The first thing that you need to do is make sure that it will be okay to go back into the home after the fire is gone. Speak with the fire marshal and ask him or her if the residence is safe. If you see puddles of water still in your residence since the fire crew has gone away, turn the electrical power in the entire home off to prevent being electrocuted.

All pools of water must be removed right away, because mold can begin to cultivate as little as 24 hours after your fire is over. It is necessary to get started as quickly as practicable where puddles of water are included. The windows and doors of the house need to be opened to let the air and remaining smoke in the household to be released. Removing the scent of soot away the residence is never easy, but this can really aid you. If there is no breeze that day, you can use fans to help blow the air outside the home may assist.

Pets should not let back inside the house. All birds that were in the home should be shown to the vet, since they are particularly sensitive to changes in their living conditions.
Everything inside the residence that is wet from the fire hose has to be taken out and let to dry, however you should try to keep those things away from direct sun, since this can stain certain items.

All food items that might have been unsealed during the fire need to be disposed of, since those items might be tainted.
Clean the leaves of the plants you own and get rid of the smoke residue. Soot on plant leaves can destroy them.
The ceilings and walls will possibly need to be repainted, since most of smoke damage cannot be cleaned up.

Any furniture inside the house that did not get drenched by the fire crew will likely have ash on it and you do not want to sit upon or rub on these. Treat it with the vacuum cleaner attachment without any bristles, since bristles and brushes will only drive it further into the carpet. This should also apply to the carpet.
