Effective Tile and Grout Cleaning

Effective Tile and Grout Cleaning

Professional tile and grout cleaning can enhance the beauty and hygiene of your floor.  If you have ever tried to clean your tile and grout yourself then you know how much of a pain it can be especially without the right tools.

A professional will have tools that you don't such as a truck mounted cleaning unit that can supply constant hot water and extract it at the same time.  They will also have specially designed tile cleaning attachments for these units that spray water and extract it at the same time.   This way the drying time is minimal and the amount of soil extracted is maximized. 

So the next time you are in need of a tile and grout cleaning, check into the benefits of having it professionally done.  This may cost you a little more than doing it yourself but the results and time you save will be well worth the small investment.

Why Clean Carpet is Better for Allergy Sufferers

There are many myths in the carpet cleaning industry.  One of them is that having a hard surface floor is better for allergy sufferers than carpet.  There have been numerous studies over the years showing that carpet, especially clean carpet is better for the occupants of an indoor space.

Having clean carpet in a space helps to trap dust, debris and other irritants and keeps them from coming up into your breathing zone.  The same dust, debris, and irritants on a hard surface floor will get disturbed easily and fly up into your breathing zone.  The key to this is having clean carpet though.  This can be accomplished with regular vacuuming, which would generally be about twice a week, followed by periodic professional carpet cleaning.  If you have large areas of hard surface flooring I would suggest some large area rugs.  This will help trap some of the allergens before they get to your breathing zone.  Then periodically take your area rug in to be professionally cleaned by a knowledgeable rug cleaner.

These are just a few tips to help you enjoy your indoor space more.
