Caring For Your Carpets After They Have Been Professionally Cleaned

If you plan to hire a professional carpet cleaning company to clean your carpets then you have made an extremely wise decision. The advantages of using professionals, rather than trying to do it yourself, are that the job gets done quickly, efficiently, and most importantly, it will get done correctly.

One aspect of having clean carpets is that after the carpet cleaning company has completed their work, there is a lot that you can do to keep them looking clean for as long as possible. Some of these actions can also help to prolong the life of your carpets too.

Stick To A Vacuuming Routine

One of the simplest ways to help keep your carpet clean, and to prolong its life is to have a regular vacuuming routine. Ideally, twice a day, but at the very least once every day. The reason is it removes visible dirt, but more importantly, it removes lots of invisible undesirables

This includes small pieces of grit that wear a carpet and cause it to be replaced sooner than it need have been. Vacuuming also helps to remove microscopic things that are harmful to our health such as bacteria, pollen, and other allergens.

How to Spruce Up Your Home for an Open Home

Around half a million homes are bought and sold in Australia every year, which means most people you meet in life will have at least some experience with the property market. According to residential and commercial cleaning experts Gleam Clean, what many people struggle with, however, is the best cleaning and ‘sprucing’ process for an open home. How do you make your property look as attractive as possible to prospective purchasers? Read on to find out.

Focus on the Kitchen and Bathroom

Kitchens and bathrooms can make or break a property deal. They tend to cost the most to renovate, and can dramatically increase or decrease your property value. Therefore, if you’re going to put some effort into cleaning, then don’t skimp on these areas.

Scrub your kitchen from top to bottom, including appliances, and don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty with the oven, too. While it sounds a little cliche, a little bit of baking before the open home can offer an unbeatable aroma for visitors.

In the bathroom, opt for that “less is best” approach. Get rid of the cemetery of empty shampoo bottles in your shower tray, and polish any stainless steel until it’s hotel quality. Get the whole family involved in the cleaning process because, as they say, many hands make light work.

Hiring A Carpet Cleaner

Carpet cleaning companies are not created equal. At first glance, a professional carpet cleaning company may look wonderful by presenting seemingly great deals, professional looking technicians, and cheap prices. But do you know most of these companies are out to milk profits from vulnerable clients?

The professional look of the technician won’t guarantee superior service and cheap prices may lead to mediocre results. So how do you pick the best from the chaff? The following tips will help you sift the good from the bad.

Training and Certification

What type of industrial training do the company’s technicians hold? A credible carpet cleaning company should hire technicians who hold at least a carpet cleaning technician certification by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration), Australia.

This is an illustrious institution in the country and it’s well-known in the cleaning industry. They give extensive hands on carpet cleaning training and all their graduates are rigorously tested.

If the company doesn’t employ IICRC certified technicians look elsewhere.
