Clean Away Odors, Don’t Just Cover Them.

Odors. They are everywhere. When pleasant, we might call them “scents.” When not-so-pleasant, we might call them malodors.Odors are caused by a variety of sources. Some odors are pleasant, welcoming, such as from a fresh-cut batch of flowers or a nice, home-cooked meal. Others are not pleasant, “malodorous,” such as from an unattended cat litter box or rotting garbage left too long in a trash bin. And when something is malodorous, you must do something about it. Sometimes, the urge is to just cover it up. That can be a very bad idea as odors just keep getting worse and worse and you eventually have a difficult situation to deal with.

You want your home to be neat, clean, and odor-free, except for odors (scents) that you introduce because they are pleasant and welcoming, such as air fresheners, perfumes, scented candles, etc. A rule of thumb is this: When it is clean and dry, there should be no odors.

Your carpet, furniture and other absorbent materials in your home, over time, become soiled and often collect odors. Normal “dusty” odors are part of life between cleaning, and routine chores keep them manageable. Yet odors from urine, feces, body perspiration, and other sources are offensive and must be removed.

There are three principles to follow when it comes to keeping your home clean and odor-free.

Remove the source

When something is deposited, spilled, or has come into contact with a surface, the first step is to remove contamination. This means scraping, rinsing or otherwise removing any odor-causing sources. The sooner you do this, the easier the job will be. An example would be blotting and removing a fresh pet “accident”, as odors will quickly become worse over time.

Clean affected areas

Once the source is removed, there is still some contamination on the surface. A thorough cleaning is important to remove any residual matter that can cause odors. Using hot water is best, if the surface can handle higher temperatures. Some furniture fabrics are heat sensitive, for example.

Deodorize and disinfect

Now it’s time to use odor-removing products, such as an approved deodorizer and/or disinfectant. This should be the final step in odor removal. Follow manufacturer directions exactly, as using too little or too much product can be counter-productive.

And never forget, your favorite cleaning professionals know how to clean and tackle tough odors. Let them do the dirty work. It pays to call a pro!

If You Can Measure It, You Can Improve It

If You Can Measure It, You Can Improve It

Picture

This statement is what CRI’s Seal of Approval (SOA) program is all about. We wanted to know how well vacuums, extractors and cleaning solutions worked to clean carpet, so we developed the carpet industry’s only scientific program to test and measure the effectiveness of cleaning products and equipment. The results help consumers make informed decisions and manufacturers improve their products. So, carpets are cleaner, healthier and last longer. Everyone benefits.

What is Being Tested?

There are seven performance attributes SOA products are evaluated on:

  1. Soil Removal Efficacy: How effective is the product at removing soil?
  2. Resoiling: Does the cleaned sample attract soil at an accelerated rate or not? (solutions and systems)
  3. Residual Moisture: Does the extractor or cleaning system remove most of the moisture that results from a wet cleaning process?
  4. Surface Appearance Change: Does the product leave the carpet minimally changed after multiple cleanings? (vacuums and extractors)
  5. Colorfastness: Does the product cause a color change in the carpet fiber? (solutions and systems)
  6. pH Level: Is the level between 4 and 10 on a pH scale? (solutions and systems)
  7. Optical Brighteners: Does the product contain optical brighteners? None are allowed for SOA certification. (solutions and systems)

Learn How to Submit a Product for Testing

A Little Help from NASA

To make SOA the most advanced test possible, CRI partnered with scientists at NASA. To develop the soil compound used in the testing, hundreds of real-world samples from all over the United States were analyzed. Then, the elements that made up or closely resembled those samples were blended together to create an accurate, measurable and repeatable formula.

Industry-Wide Benefits

The positive effects of the SOA program can be seen at every level of the carpet industry.

Consumers: SOA helps consumers make better purchasing decisions by ensuring that the products they choose will work. So carpets get cleaner and last longer. And consumers get a healthier environment in which to live and work – and a maximum return on their carpet investment.

Carpet Cleaning Manufacturers: By using the test results to see product strengths and weaknesses, manufacturers get a better idea of what they need to improve. That leads to more effective products going to market. For their efforts, the manufacturers gain the added credibility a Seal of Approval label provides.

Carpet Cleaning Professionals: Using Seal of Approval products helps cleaning professionals gain SOA certification. The certification differentiates them against the competition. It also helps them do their jobs better, which means more satisfied customers, more repeat business and better word of mouth.

Carpet: It’s Just Good for You

Healthy Eating in a Healthy Environment

Everyone is concerned about better health. We shop for healthy foods. We take our vitamins. We visit our doctor on a regular basis. We drink filtered water. What we might not appreciate is the value of filtered air.

How do you effectively filter the air in your home? You are right… changing the filters in your furnace system on a regular, scheduled basis. If you wait too long, you know it because the filter is just so darned dirty. It makes a mess when you change it. So you vow to do it more often, and maybe you even put it on your wall calendar so you don’t forget. You might even pick up a better quality filter, such as one that uses HEPA standards.

But what about the biggest filter in your home? Wonder what it is? Just look down… if you have carpet, that’s the filter that often gets ignored. If you don’t have much carpet, odds are you have area rugs covering those hard floors. Those area rugs are filters, too.

Carpet in a home is a protection for you, because it traps all kinds of allergens that can be the bane of asthma sufferers. Carpet is a filter and, like all filters, has to be either changed or cleaned. It’s not practical to change your carpet every year or so (heck, no one could afford that!) but you can — and should — have it cleaned.

Remember, allergens are very light and float in the air, and are respiratory concerns, especially for allergy and asthma sufferers. Carpet helps to keep those particulates to a minimum.

There are many documented studies about how homes and facilities, such as schools, are healthier because of carpet and regular cleaning schedules.

So enjoy your carpet… and have it cleaned by Share Advanced Tile And Carpet Deep Cleaning Services LLC!

How Dangerous is Mold in Your Home?

Everyone wants the safest, healthiest home environment for their families. You would do anything to protect your loved ones from exposure to any substance that could cause them harm.

One of those feared substances is “mold” and with what you have seen in the news in recent years, exposure to harmful or “toxic” mold has affected the health of countless people — folks just like you.

This brings up the all-important question: Just exactly how dangerous is mold in homes?

That’s a tricky question, because there are many types of mold and mold is virtually everywhere. There is probably a little bit in your basement right now. Your shoes when you came home yesterday no doubt brought in a few mold spores. Mold spores can be in breathable space and travel in the air.

When you step outside, you are surrounded by mold. There’s nothing you can do about that. The main concern is usually what’s in the home, not outside, although if you are sensitive to mold you should avoid all damp areas that could promote mold growth, inside and out.

Some people are affected by even the smallest amounts of mold. They may have nasal issues, watery eyes, coughing and other physical reactions. A smaller segment of the population are very sensitive to exposure to mold, having severe reactions that can be life threatening. Others aren’t affected at all, and can be around and/or exposure to all types of molds with no apparent sensitivities.

The CDC has plenty of information for those concerned with mold in homes. One of the issues they raise is keeping moisture out of homes. “Mold will grow in places with a lot of moisture, such as around leaks in roofs, windows, or pipes, or where there has been flooding,” according to the CDC government website.

The issue is twofold if mold is growing in your home. You must clean it up or have it cleaned up, and you must fix the moisture problem. You can do your research on how to fix the problem, but the best solution is, no doubt, getting expert advice from your professional water damage restoration contractor or mold removal or remediation company. Keep your family safe. Call the experts at Share Carpet Tile & Upholstery Cleaning Services. Call or email Ray Today! 484-542-4213

Pale Carpet + Grape Juice = Panic

 

DID YOU KNOW that the devastation of spilling something like grape juice, Kool-Aid and other fruit drinks doesn’t have to be that… devastating?

So you have kids, grandkids, or some other kids come over, and they want something to drink. They surely don’t want water from the tap. That’s pretty boring stuff. They want something fruity, sweet, and with lots of color. Like deep blues, or reds. You know the stuff that can really stain a carpet or piece of furniture.

And the inevitable occurs. The kids enjoy what you give them, but after all, they are kids. So something gets spilled. For some weird reason, this never happens on a hard, tile floor. It happens right on the carpet.

What to do?

Step #1

First of all, don’t panic. Gather your senses and realize this isn’t the end of the world.

Step #2
Start blotting. You want to use white cotton or paper towels, with no print or dyes, and blot – blot – blot! Most of any spotting or staining substance will come right out because the towel you are using is more absorbent than the carpet the drink was spilled on.

Step #3
It may be appropriate, with some coaching from your carpet cleaning pro, to do some spotting. Use a spotting product, like a mild neutral detergent spotter, recommended by your carpet pro. Apply a small amount to the spot and keep blotting. Never scrub. Scrubbing can damage the carpet fibers and you can’t fix that. Keep blotting.

Step #4
Did we say keep blotting? Keep it up! You may need to apply more approved mild detergent spotter. One thing you do not want to do is apply too much moisture, as that gets into the backing of the carpet and into the padding, creating additional problems.

Step #5
Once the spot is gone, it’s time to dry the carpet. How to do this? Keep blotting, of course! But also aim a fan on the spot and let the air current remove more moisture.

Is the spot still there? It may be a stain, very tough to remove. It is definitely now time to call your carpet cleaning pro!

Best case scenario
When anything happens, like spilling grape juice, red wine, mustard or other tough-to-remove substances, call Share Advanced Tile And Carpet Deep Cleaning Services LLC the cleaning professionals. We have what it takes to get the job done right the first time. Make that phone call especially for pet “accidents.” Share Advanced Tile And Carpet Deep Cleaning Services LLC know’s exactly what you need to keep your home spot and stain free!

5 Ridiculous Things Service Companies Do That Drive Everyone Crazy!

“5 Ridiculous Things Service Companies Do That

Drive Everyone Crazy…and How

Share Advanced Carpet Cleaning Services Has Solved This Mess!”

 

What Every Homeowner Should Know Before Calling Any Carpet Cleaner!

1)Wasted Time: “We’ll be there between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.” Have you ever had to wait all day for a service company to show up? Like your time isn’t valuable? Share Advanced Cleaning Services offers 30 minute time frames for our appointments, allowing you to schedule your day around us.

 

2)Worthless Guarantees: Such as — “SATISFACTION IS GUARANTEED!” You hear this all the time. If it was guaranteed then why are there so many horror stories out there? At Share Advanced Tile and Carpet Deep Cleaning Services, we offer The Most Thorough Cleaning Ever, or it’s FREE! We really do stand behind every job we do with our 200% Iron-Clad No-Risk Guarantee. There is absolutely NOTHING more important than your complete and total satisfaction!

 

3) Bait & Switch: Many carpet cleaners advertise super-low prices hoping you call them for service – that’s the bait! Then once they arrive, everything suddenly becomes an additional charge – that’s the switch! At Share Advanced Tile and Carpet Deep Cleaning Services, we offer our exclusive FREE Carpet Audit. This is a professional evaluation of your carpet PLUS you’ll get an exact handwritten “down-to-the-penny” price when we leave on what it will cost to have us clean it for you. Don’t fall victim to the bait & switch con game!

 

4) Telemarketing: There’s nothing more annoying than sitting down for dinner with your family and then being interrupted by an unwelcome pest telling you he’s going to be in your neighborhood with a “special deal”. WE DON’T BELIEVE IN TELEMARKETING! (We hate those guys!) Our clients call us and tell us when they want their carpet cleaned.

 

5) Unsupported Claims: “THIS CLEANING METHOD IS THE BEST.” You’ll read this in almost every ad and hear this from virtually every carpet cleaner. The bottom line: It pays to read your carpet warranty! The manufacturer will tell you which method they prefer and how often they expect you to clean it. The method YOU think is best may NOT be the method that your carpet manufacturer approves… So be very careful when choosing a carpet cleaner— you don’t want to void your warranty!

 

Serving the Lehigh Valley, Bucks and Montgomery Counties. If your carpet and tile has suffered from winter weather-related damages this season, call 484-542-4213 or email Ray today!
