    How to clean carpeted areas and upholstery in Bell county

    For “new” stains (those that are still wet):

    • Soak up as much of the urine as possible with a combination of newspaper and paper towels. The more fresh urine you can remove before it dries, especially from carpet, the easier it will be to remove the odor. Place a thick layer of paper towels on the wet spot, and cover that with a thick layer of newspaper. If possible, put newspaper under the soiled area as well. Stand on this padding for about a minute. Remove the padding, and repeat the process until the area is barely damp.
    • If possible, put the fresh, urine-soaked paper towel in the area where it belongs—your cat’s litter box or your dog’s designated outdoor “bathroom area.” This will help remind your pet that eliminating isn’t a “bad” behavior as long as it’s done in the right place.
    • Rinse the “accident zone” thoroughly with clean, cool water. After rinsing, remove as much of the water as possible by blotting or by using a wet vac.

    For stains that have already set:

    • Consider renting an extractor or wet vac to remove all traces of heavy stains in carpeting (get one from a local hardware store). This machine works much like a vacuum cleaner and is efficient and economical. Extracting/wet vac machines do the best job of forcing clean water through your carpet and then forcing the dirty water back out. When you use these machines or cleaners, carefully follow the instructions. Don’t use any chemicals with these machines; they work much better with plain water.
    • Use a high-quality pet odor neutralizer once the area is really clean (available at pet supply stores). Be sure to read and follow the cleaner’s directions for use, including testing the cleaner on a small, hidden portion of fabric first to be sure it doesn’t stain.
    • Try any good carpet stain remover if the area still looks stained after it’s completely dry from extracting and neutralizing.
    • Avoid using steam cleanersto clean urine odors from carpet or upholstery. The heat will permanently set the stain and the odor by bonding the protein into any man-made fibers.
    • Avoid using cleaning chemicals, especially those with strong odors such as ammonia or vinegar. From your pet’s perspective, these don’t effectively eliminate or cover the urine odor and may actually encourage your pet to reinforce the urine scent mark in that area.
    • Neutralizing cleaners won’t work until you’ve rinsed every trace of the old cleaner from the carpet if you’ve previously used cleaners or chemicals of any kind on the area. Even if you haven’t used chemicals recently, any trace of a non-protein-based substance will weaken the effect of the enzymatic cleaner. The cleaner will use up its “energy” on the old cleaners, instead of on the protein stains you want removed.
    • Your job will be more difficult if urine has soaked down into the padding underneath your carpet. In some cases, you may need to take the drastic step of removing and replacing that portion of the carpet and padding.

    Carpet cleaning is important to maintaining the overall comfort and monetary value of a property. Any type of flooring is an investment for the property owner. Keeping the investment in the best shape takes a professional, but without proper certification, the consumer cannot be guaranteed of proper education and training on updated techniques used in maintaining the value of the flooring.

    There are health concerns that can arise from any unsanitary environment, and it can be surprising to learn what survives in and under the flooring. Allergens that are left behind can lead to serious health problems for family members and even household pets. Proper techniques can reduce or eliminate allergens in the environment, improving the health of the occupants.

    Great strides have been made in technologies used in carpet-care. Today there are only a few basic wet and dry methodologies accepted by the industry leaders. Ensuring consistently high standards means understanding how the certifying body works to guarantee better results at lower costs.

    Pristine carpet cleaning in Killeen Tx is a full service carpet, upholstery, tile and grout cleaning company that uses the Rotovac to clean carpets. Sometimes vacuuming just is not enough to get the job done, and the assistance of a rug cleaning specialist such as Pristine carpet cleaning Killeen Tx is necessary. Carpet can muffle sound, prevent slipping and collect the soil and debris that would otherwise get tracked through the house. Maintaining its durability through thorough tidying is a way to ensure long lasting usefulness.

    Finding someone reliable to perform a professional cleaning is not difficult when one knows what to look for. When searching for a reputable business to trust, it is important to look for one that has been operating for a number of years. This is not to say that a new business is incapable of providing quality work, but someone with a history in the field is far more likely to have the necessary skills. Obtaining information on a business that has been around for years will be easier, because they’ve had the opportunity to be critiqued by more customers. Online recommendations are helpful when deciding on a rug cleaning service, because they provide proof of excellent customer service and a job that has been satisfactorily done. While not necessary, picking a business that specializes in more than cleaning has its benefits. A company that is well versed in restoration and repair has a clear idea of how the rug should look, as well as how it is made, and all of that knowledge can be applied when inspecting and treating it. A professional business is also more likely to have the machines, soap solutions and techniques that result in a complete laundering.

    A professional rug cleaning such as Pristine Carpet Cleaning LLC Killeen serves the purpose of removing stains, dirt, odors and allergens. There are a few different methods of achieving this, but the most common is composed of a few steps. First, remove items that are small and fragile from pieces of furniture that will need to be moved. A crew will do all the heavy lifting, but can operate more quickly and efficiently without clutter. A pre-inspection will reveal if there are any permanent stains and allow the employees to determine rug construction and materials. Jute, a natural fiber that used to be employed as a backing is known to shrink when wet, so an inspection is an important part of the process. A thorough vacuuming of the area will then be done to remove debris. Afterwards, a pre-spray and spot treatment will be applied before a machine-mounted hot water extraction is performed.  The hot water extraction sprays water that has its heat and pressure carefully regulated to prevent floor coverings from getting sopping wet. This method flushes the carpet with a diluted cleaning agent that removes bonded dirt and grit. The hot water extraction machine sucks up the water immediately after spraying it, and this is performed front to back. Afterwards, there is a post-spot treatment to tend to any trouble spots. Then the floor covering is raked to encourage faster drying and to be more aesthetically pleasing. Call Pristine Carpet Cleaning LLC today to schedule your professional carpet cleaning appointment or visit us at www.pristinehomecarpet.com

    Having your carpets professionally cleaned is seen as a burden by most homeowners when it ought to be looked at a necessary, regular maintenance task. Not only does employing a carpet shampooer such as Pristine Carpet Cleaning LLC in Killeen Tx once a year as a maintenance priority make your carpets look pretty, it comes with a long list of other valuable benefits as well.

    Extend the Life of Your Carpets
    Remember, a carpet cleaning doesn’t just improve the appearance of your carpets, it drastically extends their life as well. All that dirt and grime doesn’t just look bad, it wears and tears at your carpet fibers over the years. Furthermore, the more it works its way into your carpet, the more damage it’s going to do. By scheduling a carpet cleaning once a year, you can rest easy that damaging dirt and debris buildup will be kept to a minimum. In fact, many new carpet manufacturers require regular cleanings if you want your warranty to remain valid. They’ve caught on as well. The cleaner your carpet stays, the less they’ll have to pay out for carpeting that doesn’t live up their bidding.

    Improve the Health of Your Family.
    The other often overlooked aspect of regularly calling in a carpet shampooer is the hidden health benefits. 90% of the dust in your home is shedded human skin, and parasites like dust mites live in paradise in a home that neglects picking up their primary food source. Other pests, such as bed bugs and fleas also have a harder time taking root in the face of regular visits by a carpet shampooer. Besides that, carpet cleanings are integral to keeping up the proper ventilation in your home. Much of that ventilation occurs through air circulating through the base of your walls, and a dirty carpet seriously impedes that important flow. Regular, deep cleanings keep those avenues open and can make a big difference if you or a family member suffers from allergies or is inflicted with asthma.

  5. Pet odor removal carpet cleaning Killeen

    October 30, 2014

    If you have pet odor or pet urine issues please call Pristine Carpet Cleaning Killeen. For many dog and cat owners, pet odor removal from carpets is an unfortunate fact of life. Puppies and kittens have a tendency to mess up flooring quite a bit before they are properly trained, and by the time they’re going outside or in the litter box, the floor may resemble a warzone. There are, however, a few ways a homeowner can wipe out the smells and stains that animals leave behind. In some cases, a professional may be needed to handle a particularly difficult and soiled situation.

    The first thing to do when attempting pet odor removal is to locate the problem area on the carpet. This is often easier said than done, as dark flooring can make the area practically invisible. If finding the spot is too hard to do with the naked eye, illuminate the area with a black light. This type of bulb will highlight areas where Fluffy or Spot have been doing their business and will make give a starting spot when it comes to tackling the problem. Another way to track down soiled spots is to watch how other animals track through the home. If there are multiple dogs or cats in the house, they will stop and thoroughly investigate and sniff any area where other animals have evacuated.  Cleaning these spots thoroughly can mitigate the problem.

    Carpet cleaning Killeen Tx. It’s important to fix the issue as soon as it is detected, for a couple of reasons. Animals have a tendency to use the bathroom where they detect the scent of urine or feces, so the problem could snowball and training the pup or kitten will be that much more difficult. Pet odor removal must also be done immediately because if the soiled patch of carpet is allowed to sit for too long, it will require more dramatic methods to get rid of it. If the animals are allowed to soil the flooring for weeks at a time, and the fabric is not cleaned thoroughly every time, the carpet may need to be replaced, which is significantly more expensive and obnoxious than dealing with the issue in the first place.

    The best way to approach pet odor removal is to clean from the outside of the stain in. Starting from the center may push the stain out further and deeper into the flooring. Scrub inward with a bristle brush and paper towels. Use the paper towels to absorb liquid, and don’t scrub with them, as they may tear and get intertwined with carpet fibers.

    Pristine carpet cleaning Killeen Tx. Natural pet odor removal substances include vinegar, baking soda, rubbing alcohol, lemon or club soda. Rubbing alcohol can be applied directly to the area and blotted up once it sits for a few minutes. Vinegar, baking soda or lemon juice mixed with water can also be applied this way. If the problem is more widespread or doesn’t respond to these gentle methods, consider purchasing an enzyme solution from the pet store. Professional carpet cleaning Killeen Tx. These solutions digest the proteins found in dog and cat urine and fecal matter.

    However, even that is often not enough to neutralize the problem, especially with more potent feline urine. If the smell remains after a few attempts to clean it, hire a professional to sanitize the flooring. This is a solution that is cost effective and quick, and will leave the carpet immaculate.

    IMG_173980210539185If a business wants to look professional, it needs professionals to keep everything pristine, and this is where commercial carpet cleaning services come in. While they share many techniques with their residential counterparts, an outfit that specifically targets companies has to approach the sanitizing process a little differently. Pristine carpet cleaning Killeen Tx www.pristinehomecarpet.com

    In most cases, when a residential service is called out to a property, it’s a one-time thing. The workers get in, take care of the floors that need help and head out. There’s a little more to it with a commercial carpet cleaning service, as these businesses focus on maintenance. This maintenance is required, because the fabrics found in professional settings usually handle much more foot traffic than residential floors. This increased foot traffic soils the fabric quickly, and regular intervention is needed to keep things from getting unhealthy.

    While a sanitizing company may inspect a home’s fabrics before getting started, it is pretty much standard operating procedure with a commercial carpet cleaning outfit. Floorings found in professional settings are often better at hiding soiled areas, and because there is more room to cover, it’s not always clear where the highest traffic zones are located. A thorough check will spot what areas need the most help. These problem zones are usually around entryways, bottlenecks and doorways. Pristine carpet cleaning Killeen handles all of those high traffic areas.

    Once a detailed layout of the building is put together, and the points of concern are flagged, the maintenance can begin. This can be broken down into three schedules of treatment: preventative, daily and intermittent. This detailed plan is not something that’s usually done for houses or apartments, as these buildings don’t bring in as much debris and sediment.

    Great strides have been made in technologies used in carpet-care. Today there are only a few basic wet and dry methodologies accepted by the industry leaders. Ensuring consistently high standards means understanding how the certifying body works to guarantee better results at lower costs.

    Proper maintenance begins with regular vacuuming using a high-powered machine. Over time normal wear and tear leads to a dull, soiled appearance. Proper maintenance by the occupants can help keep the flooring looking good, but there comes a time when a certified technician has to be called to get to the really deep grime a normal household vacuum can miss.

    A carpet cleaning technician should always be trained and educated in proper techniques. The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is the accepted industry leader in floor maintenance and restoration. The non-profit organization ensures technicians remain competitive and that consumers receive better service.

    For businesses, getting certified helps build the competitive edge and grow a successful business. A higher level of commitment and competency is displayed with the CleanTrust logo. The most updated technologies and techniques are available to the professional. Hiring a company that doesn’t take the certification process seriously is not good enough. It takes dedication and experience to earn the trust of the consumer, and proper training and education will ensure that the job is done well.

    ANSI accreditation has been vital to the reputation of any organization. Being the industry leader when it comes to carpet cleaning certification has not been easy. Only the most modern methods will suffice. In conjunction with the American Home Furnishings Alliance the IICRC has also been proven reliable in producing Furniture Care Codes necessary for high quality upholstery care.

    The consumer can trust that a registered logo comes with certain responsibilities. Continuing education guarantees a certified technician is updated on the latest methods in high quality carpet cleaning and care. All technicians have to carry the proper amount of liability insurance, and the logo is a promise of high integrity and honesty.

    While regular maintenance is beneficial to the healthfulness and attractiveness of a home or office, a certified technician is necessary to take care of the really deep jobs regular vacuuming misses. Pristine Carpet Cleaning LLC Killeen TX. www.pristinehomecarpet.com
