September 7, 2017 - Chem-Dry vs. Steam Cleaning

Here at Chem-Dry of Seattle, we do things differently. We take pride in being able to provide a natural, longer lasting carpet cleaning solution than traditional steam cleaning. Our unique Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) method provides you with the best clean possible.

Our HCE process differs drastically from that of steam cleaners, which simply douse your carpet in buckets of hot, soapy water, then attempt to suck it all back out. While this process does temporarily clean your carpets, it also leaves behind a layer of sticky residue which collects dirt quicker, in addition to leaving moisture at the base of your carpet. This excess of moisture causes the carpets to take longer to dry and allows for mold and bacteria to grow.

Tips on keeping your carpets clean this holiday season!

The holiday season is great, aren’t they? You can catch up with relatives from far and near. There’s your daughter’s Christmas recital, also as your son’s holiday play. Who doesn’t love celebratory toasts, tree trimming and in many cases the most significant event of all, the annual holiday party you host? Your carpets probably don’t love it, considering the annual wine spills, mud tracks and outside debris which makes its way in. Here’s the best ways to keep the spills and stains to a minimum:

  • Hire an expert such as Chem-Dry of Seattle to submit an application a protectant on your carpet.Prepare for the holidays (and all the spills and stains which come with your holiday gatherings) by getting Chem-Dry of Seattle to apply a stain resistant treatment to your carpets that has stain blockers so that soils have nowhere to absorb and can be easily rinsed out of your carpets. Get a hold of your local Chem-Dry of Seattle, and allow the professionals to prepare your most vulnerable and high traffic areas to be successful before the food staining opportunities of a holiday season begin.

  • Notify your invited guests to leave their shoes near the door. One quick and simple way to reduce mud, bacteria and dirt that lives outdoors from entering your home is by making a shoe station inside the front door. With those out-of-state family members that come for a visit, tell them (along with a smile) their shoes are safe inside of your home-by the front door. Surely they’ll know the pride you possess for your carpets, and most likely, they’ll be more than delighted to oblige.

  • If weather is warm enough, bring the party outdoors! Certain parts of the country are sufficiently lucky to have mild winter season. If you live in Texas, Arizona or California, you most likely are one of the few able to comfortably host a ‘winter wonderland’ themed party outdoors!

Get prepared forthe holidays by contacting Chem-Dry of Seattle, the cleaning experts you can depend on! They provide a ‘tough on stains, healthy for the home’ carpet solution and protectant that is going tohelp keep the spills and stains away-no matter exactly how many visitors you look forward to!

How to protect your carpet with the season changing

With the weather turning cooler and leaves are changing color, the autumnmonths are also bringing rain…and a great deal of it! While it usually isan excellent time for early evening walks and colorful foliage, it's not at all the prettiest time for your carpets! The rainy season often means wet, dirty, and muddy carpets. Not to fret…there are plenty ofactions you can taketo guard your carpets with the rainy weather that accompanies the autumn season.

Make surethat anyone who enters your home removes their shoes by yourentry way. This will alleviate a great deal of dirt and mud from being tracked within your home on people’s shoes. If you have pets, you should also wipe their paws before enabling them to enter your home.

Also, it is advisable to invest in rugs and door mats. By placing door mats at each of the entryways, you are ablelower the amount of grime that comesdirectly into the home. It is a good reminder for guests to wipe their feet. You can place decorative rugs in hallways, entryways, besides other high traffic areas. This is an easy and inexpensive way to protect your carpets from stains. Rugs aremuch easier to clean and can oftentimes be washed in the washing machine.

root cause of soiling and stains is high humidity. When there's a high level of moisture in the air, it is more likely that soils and stains can set into your carpets. You can avoid this problem by using fans or air-conditioners to reduce the moist air in your home.
