Back to school. For most parents it marks a glorious celebration. You are no longer in charge of keeping those adoring miniature copies of you entertained. The pressure is off and one can finally put their feet up and relax. Summer time brings summer activities for our little ones. But even with hot temperatures, children go outside. They play in the pool or sprinklers if a pool is not available. Parks are a common hang out and all that dirt, mud, and grime has found its way into your beautiful home. You realize now that you have your free time back and the house is yours again. You decide a good cleaning will mark the occasion. From top bottom you get your home sparkling clean. You just sit and stare at the marvelous beauty you see before your eyes. You even pampered yourself and called upon a skilled specialist from Steam Green Carpet Cleaning to get those carpets cleaned and sanitized from the summer mess. But wait! The kids eventually come home from school, and though you are filled with joy you remember what occurred over the summer to call upon the carpet warriors. Rest assured we can give you help and tips to keep those carpets looking spontaneous guest ready.

Steam Green Carpet Cleaning has prepared the following carpet cleaning tips:

Shoe Organizers – We are going to start with shoes. Shoes are great expression of our personalities, and many of us love shoes to go with every outfit. The larger a family, the greater abundance of shoes we collect. Naturally walking through asphalt, playgrounds, classrooms, hallways, and even buses, those shoes are mustering up, in a word, filth. You don’t want that dirt, black grime, and muck all over your freshly cleaned carpets. Get a shoe organizer pronto. Wherever you choose to store their shoes, a shoe organizer is a great way to start keeping the germ infestation at bay. Sometimes even letting children personalize their shoes cubby can encourage them to take ownership and keep their shoes where they belong.
Door Mats and Rugs – Obvious to most and oblivious to some. Your kids will be getting into a new routine with back to school, and getting a door mat or even a new one if the older one is looking like it has seen better days, is a good way to set a new rule of wiping as much crud off as possible before entering your home. Having an area rug where they first enter is also a good idea as it can help compile that last bit of dirt off as they walk through.
Carpet Cleaning Chores – Light chores for young and old are a wonderful habit and tool into helping keeping the home clean, teaching reasonability and gives kids pride in their home. Rewarding kids after chores are done can keep them motivated too. Vacuuming regularly keeps carpets fresh, especially if you have a furry friend living with you. By keeping pet hair and dander up you’re not only keeping carpets sparkling, but helping out anyone with allergies.

Nothing can get you up and moving in the morning like that first cup of Joe. But despite our best efforts it’s inevitable that at some point while we are relaxing with that nice hot cup of brew, spills are going to happen. Being a seasoned coffee drinking you are probably used to the familiar brown ring-shaped stains sometimes left behind on newspapers, coffee tables, kitchen counters and occasionally your carpets and area rugs. Newspapers can be thrown out and a quick wipe with kitchen cleaner and a paper towel takes care of the counter top, but what about treating a coffee stain on carpet? The professional carpet cleaning specialists at Steam Green Carpet Cleaning recommend acting quickly or the stain will soak into the carpet fibers and dry, setting and becoming much harder to treat. A quick but thorough clean is especially important if the coffee contained added milk or cream which can spoil causing odor and bacteria if left untreated. At Steam Green Carpet Cleaning, cleaning carpets is our specialty. Our steam clean carpet shampooing removes unhealthy dirt, bacteria, dust, pollutants and contaminants.

Steam Green Carpet Cleaning recommends the following coffee stain removal cleaning tips to help you maintain your carpet’s condition until our next scheduled visit.

Absorb the stain – The first step to cleaning any kind of liquid spill is absorb as much moisture as possible by blotting the stain, you may need to do this several times. The blotting action also helps keep the stain from spreading.
Blot up the moisture – Flush the area with a small amount of clean, cool water. Quickly blot up as much of the liquid as possible. Re-apply the clean water and continue to blot. Be patient and don’t saturate the area.
Clean – Fill a glass bowl with two cups of lukewarm water, add ¼ cup of lemon juice and a squirt of liquid dish detergent, stir gently to mix, and then moisten a clean household sponge with the cleaning solution. Squeeze and apply a small amount of solution to the stained carpet. Rub gently beginning at the outside of the stain and working towards the center. Continue until the entire stain is covered with the cleaning solution.
Rinse – Rinse with a small amount of clear, cool water in a spray bottle and blot up the excess moisture immediately. Remove as must moisture as possible and allow to air dry
Vinegar – For set in coffee stains vinegar has amazing cleaning powers. Use 1 part water to 3 parts white vinegar. Moisten a household sponge with the vinegar solution and dab onto the stain. For stubborn stains, leave the solution on overnight.

Your hardwood floors were the best investment when it came to the interior of your home. Hardwood floors are such a great way to tie all the rooms together and give a beautiful look to your house. They are usually a great and sturdy option that can last a long time and are a good choice for pets and kids. There are moments when your floors can start to look dull and discolored. Do you need to have them replaced? Can they be fixed? You can only clean them so many times before it just isn’t getting them looking good anymore. The best choice is to just have a professional come out and refinish the wood that you have. If you choose this option it will save you money instead of replacing them and can bring them back to looking new.

Steam Green Carpet Cleaners came up with some things you should know before having your floor refinished:

– One of the things that you need to know is that you will need to move your furniture out for the duration of the refinishing process. This means any area that you are having done you will need to have the furniture moved out and you wont have easy access to it during the work. This can be somewhat inconvenient so plan accordingly when you have time set to stay with a friend or use their kitchen etc if needed.
– The next thing is to make sure that you know what you are getting. Part of the process is when the floors are stripped and sanded down. This is needed to clean off all the clear coating and color that is already on the floors. When this happens is can cause a significant amount of dust to settle so be ready. When you hire Steam Green Carpet Cleaning, we will clean up the dust as we go.
– You also need to be prepared to pick a color. It is always best when refinishing a wood floor to use a color that is similar to what you had currently. This will help the new stain to set in nicely and have a less likelihood that it will look spotty.
– After the floors are done you can move your items back and start to enjoy you newly freshened up floors.

Clients Testimonials

We didnt have the funds to buy new carpet so we thought we would try them. They were able to get the pet smell out and they even were able to get oil paint from my 2 year old out of an upstairs bedroom carpet. Would use again.
