Effective Carpet Cleaning For Stain Removal
  • Carpet Absorbent Technique
  • This technique is ideal for cleaning carpets that
    have organic dirt and other materials that can be
    dissolved in water. When cleaning the carpet with
    this technique the normal procedure involves
    making sure water that contains solvents is
    sprayed on the stained spot on the carpet. The
    carpet then soaks up the sprayed water and also
    dissolves the stain, then a thorough vacuuming of
    the spot is done to remove the stains. This is
    arguably one of the easiest and most effective
    means of cleaning carpets.
  • The Bonnet Technique
  • This cleaning technique is most suited for the
    removal of stubborn stains from the carpet. The
    technique involves the use of special
    biodegradable detergents and a rotating brush to
    scrub off strains and dirt from affected areas of
    a carpet. This technique is also very effective
    and requires a minimal amount of water.

Effective Carpet Cleaning For Stain Removal
  • The Shampooing Technique
  • This technique involves the use of either a wet
    shampoo or aerosol foam shampoo. When using wet
    shampoo the carpet is usually soaked in a shampoo
    solution, then thoroughly vacuumed and dry
    afterward. And in the end, you get nothing but a
    sparkling result. On the other hand, the aerosol
    foam shampoo method involves the spraying of the
    shampoo on the carpet, then the solution is given
    time to dry, then vacuumed afterward to remove
    the dirt. Bear in mind that, shampoos such as
    ammonia-based shampoo often leaves a foul smell
    afterward when used for carpet cleaning.
  • The Steam Cleaning Technique
  • This technique is actually the most common carpet
    cleaning technique today. It simply involves the
    thorough vacuuming of the carpet with the aim of
    removing solid dirt materials. Then afterward hot
    steamy water is used to the remove the stains
    that are found on the carpet. However in most
    cases, when applying hot steamy water to the
    carpet, detergents are added and left for about
    15-30 minutes in order to properly absorb and
    dissolve the stains thereby making it easy for
    the stains to be removed. However, the downside
    of this technique is the fact that it takes
    considerable time for the carpet to dry.

Professional Carpet Cleaning VS DIY
  • DIY Carpet Cleaning
  • When you undertake a DIY carpet cleaning what
    usually goes down is the normal carpet vacuuming
    and removal of stains with the aid of DIY stain
    removal products that you can get at local
    stores.
  • Carpet vacuuming especially when it's done
    regularly could be very helpful in the
    maintenance and longevity of the carpet. This
    exercise gets rid of accumulated dust, dirt
    particles and microorganism that are present in
    the carpet, thereby not only keeping the carpet
    in a good state but also improving the quality of
    air in the home.
  • When removing stains from the carpet with
    chemical-based stain removal products, it's
    advised that you observe caution so as not to
    damage the carpet. Most of these chemical based
    stain removal products are very powerful. This is
    why on these products pack and body you will
    often find instruction for its use always written
    in clear terms.

Professional Carpet Cleaning VS DIY
  • Professional Carpet Cleaning
  • Meanwhile unlike the DIY approach to carpet
    cleaning, professional carpet cleaners devout
    lots of time, money and research in order to come
    up with carpet cleaning procedures that would
    produce safe and excellent results. In addition,
    professional carpet cleaning outfits have on
    their payroll, personnel that is well trained in
    the use of high-end materials, products, and
    technology. Furthermore, this personnel boast of
    several years of professional experience and have
    dealt with numerous and severe cases of stain
    removals and general carpet cleaning.
  • So when it comes to pricing of professional
    carpet cleaning, it most times depends on the
    nature of the carpet that is to be cleaned.
    That's to say, when confronted with a heavily
    stain carpet the cost of cleaning the carpet is
    expected to be higher than a normal dirty carpet.
    This is because more manpower, high-end stain
    removals, and chemical will be used to clean the
    heavily stained carpet.

Caulking Windows
  • Why should you caulk your windows?
  • Having gaps in your windows is a very a bad
    feature that could cause lots of harm to your
    home. This is due to the fact that these gaps
    make your home vulnerable to leaks and moisture
    which are detrimental to the safety of your
    structure.
  • Another great reason for caulking windows is that
    it helps you save money on energy bills. How?
    With those gaps in your window, the heating of
    your home is always sabotaged because these heats
    escape through the gaps in your window leaving
    you with an insufficient heat and also an
    exorbitant energy bill. So by caulking windows,
    these gaps are sealed, energy is retained, well
    utilized and the bills are lowered too.
  • When is the ideal time for caulking windows?
  • The ideal time for caulking windows should during
    the warm weather months. This is because during
    this period the mid-range temperature that is
    usually above 40 degrees makes the caulking more
    adhesive. Another reason why caulking windows
    during the warmer weather is ideal is the fact
    that, the process of caulking windows demands
    that you the windows stay open till the job is
    complete. And if you choose to caulk your windows
    during cold weather months, it wont be ideal to
    leave your windows open, as it will expose
    occupants to not only the cold weather but also
    causes a great deal of discomfort.

Where Do I Need to Caulk Windows?
  • Basically, window caulking depends largely on the
    kind of siding and frames you choose to install.
    Therefore if you have a window frame like vinyl,
    chances are, it will most likely hold tight the
    glass than the wood frames. So for vinyl siding,
    all you need is applying a small amount of
    painters caulk on the edges exactly at the point
    where the glass connects your window frame.
    Although this only serves aesthetic purposes.
  • However, in a situation where you have a wood
    siding and also wish to install a wood-framed
    window, you are expected to carry out a thorough
    filling of the gaps with a clear silicone caulk
    in order to prevent leaks and moisture
    penetration through the window.
  • Where are the places to avoid during window
    caulking?
  • The windows weep hole is one of those places you
    should look out for when window caulking. The
    window's weep hole is the small hole that is
    found at the bottom of the exterior frame in
    vinyl windows. This hole is there to serve as a
    vital exit for moisture found behind the window.
  • The point in the window where the trim meets the
    siding is another vital area to avoid when
    caulking your window especially in cases where
    the trim flush against the siding.
