Carpets seem like magnets for stains, don't they? Spilt wine, tea, coffee, paint… these are just some of the mishaps that are bound to happen if you have a carpet. Does getting that stain out of your carpet seem impossible? Here are a few tips to help you out.

It is always best to tackle stains immediately to avoid permanent damage to your carpet. Fresh stains are also easier to remove than old ones. You can use baby wipes to blot up spills from your rug or carpet. They absorb both the liquid and the stain and make great homemade carpet cleaners. 

You should have patience while removing stains as it may take a little extra time, muscle and effort.

Removing a stain can be a pain, especially one that has soaked deep down into soft fibers. So it is best to identify the stain and the time it has taken to settle in. 

Different types of stains require different treatment and solutions. Find the best suitable solution and method as the type of stain impacts how you should remove it. 

You should also reference the specific fabric you're treating to determine the appropriate product, water temperature, and technique to use. For example, if the carpet is made of wool do not use ammonia as a stain remover. Always remember to test for colorfastness.

Most stains require a thorough washing after the treatment and vacuuming until the stain is gone and the carpet is dry. You may have to repeat the process a couple of times to remove all traces of the stain. 

Even if you don't have any mishaps, you should always have your carpet thoroughly cleaned every 12 to 18 months. It is best to avail the services of professional carpet cleaning services.

Tips To Remove Pet Urine Odour

Tips To Remove Pet Urine Odour

Our pets are like family to us. They are the best part of the day when you come home tired from work. Nothing can match the feeling when your pet gets all happy to see you come home and sits to cuddle with you. But with all the cuddling, there are the pet droppings as well, which can give rise to really bad odour making your home smell very bad. Here are some of the tips to make your home feel fresh throughout and keep the bond with your pets unconditionally loving.

Carpeted areas and upholstery
For the stains that have just happened and are fresh, try soaking up the urine as much as possible with a cotton cloth. Place paper towels on the area to soak up the urine, cover it with a newspaper and stand on it for a while to soak up everything. Repeat this procedure till the area is barely damp. If possible, place one of these urine soaked paper towels near your pets designated bathroom area. Since they are attracted to the smell, it could teach them that this is the place for them do their business. Don’t forget to rinse the accident area with cool water and blot it dry.

Paint and wood damage
If the wooden surface of your furniture, walls, baseboard or floor is discoloured, it means that the varnish or paint has reacted with the acids in the urine. It’s best to get a new layer of varnish or paint. While doing so, don’t forget to make sure that the new paint material is safe for pets to avoid any further such incidents.

Finding Older Mess
Sometimes it so happens that the odour is already present but you do not know where the source is. In such times, turn to your natural instincts, follow your nose to find the source. If you have a black light, use it to identify the soiled area and mark it for cleaning.

Avoid Future Accidents
There’s a high chance that your pets will return to the “accident zone” if they can still smell their personal scent. Make sure you properly clean the area to remove any smell which could lead the animal back to the same spot. Try to make this area not so attractive to them and their actual designated potty area extra attractive. Productively cultivate a new habit in your pet’s mind to do its business in this designated area. Normally re-training will take about a week or two.

Classique Chem-Dry is always available for service of any form of pet urine odour removal. Visit our website to know more about services or call us on 1800 213 006 to get a free quote.

Upholstery Cleaning - Doing it the right way!

Upholstery Cleaning

Having your upholstery cleaned regularly is a must for all homeowners. With all the bacteria, dust and other allergens that enter your home, your upholstery can be a source of allergies if not cleaned from time to time. However, it's not just about cleaning it timely but also doing it correctly. Here are a few tips to keep in mind to ensure your upholstery cleaning is a success.

Use the right cleaning solutions
Using the wrong cleaning products won't give you the desired results. Hence it is important to buy appropriate cleaning products for your upholstery after doing considerable research. If you miss this step you could end up staining and damaging your furniture.

Test the cleaning product
Always do a test patch before you use the product on your entire upholstery. With this, you will know if the cleaning product is safe to use or not. If you see no signs of damage then you can go ahead and clean the remaining parts of your upholstery with the same cleaning product.

Never soak in water
One thing you must avoid is soaking your upholstery in water as this could worsen the stain and do substantial damage.

Do not ignore the upholstery material
When it comes to upholstery cleaning there's no one technique fits all. What works for a plush sofa need not work for a leather sofa. So keep in mind the type of material used in your upholstery before you begin the cleaning process.

Clean regularly
Clean every 12 to 18 months to extend the life of your upholstery. Also, vacuum your furniture every 2 weeks especially if you have children and pets at home. And remember to act right away when you spot any stains on your upholstery.

If you're looking for experts to handle the cleaning for you, look no further. Call Classique Chem-Dry on 1800 213 006. We offer professional upholstery cleaning services to revive the beauty of your upholstery/furniture.
