• 3 Vacuuming Tricks for Busy Moms

    vacuuming-tips

    Are you sick of housecleaning and vacuuming and trying to keep it all together? If you're a busy mom, you know how important it is to make the most of your time with efficiency, multitasking, and timesaving tricks. Although vacuuming is necessary, there are some tricks you can use to make it more effective while it takes less of your time. Here are three of them:

    Trick #1: Ditch the Broom

    Are you sweeping the hard floors in your home and vacuuming the carpets and rugs? Ditch the broom and use your vacuum for all of it. You’ll get up more of the small dust and dirt, and you’ll be able to get rid of a whole cleaning step.

    Trick #2: Take Advantage of the Attachments

    If you're like a lot of people, you ditch the handheld attachments in favor of the back and forth of the vacuum cleaner. But you can save a lot of time with general cleaning by utilizing the handheld pieces. You can get around the carpet and floor edges, get the dust off window blinds and curtains, clean vents, and get the junk out of the furniture that gets sucked into the vortex of the cushions.

    Trick #3: Professional Cleaning Makes the Job Easier

    Vacuuming dirty carpets is no easy task. Having your flooring professionally cleaned at least once a year can make vacuuming that much easier. It gets out the deep down dirt and debris, along with the pollutants, pet hair, and dander that makes your carpet hard to maintain.

    Vacuuming shouldn't be a nightmare, and with a few tricks, you can make it easier. For carpet cleaning that can make vacuuming a snap, talk to our team at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners today.

  • 3 Benefits of Adding Carpet Cleaning to Your Back-to-School To-Do List

    carpet-cleaning

    Is there a perfect time of year for carpet cleaning? Everyone has an argument for a time that is better than another, but we're here to argue for adding it to your back-to-school to-do list. Here are three benefits of lining up the timing with the start of the new school year:

    Benefit #1: Get the Summer Dirt Out of the House!

    With kids home for summer break, the carpets in your house are getting an extra workout. More traffic in and out, more kids coming and going, and the dirt and mud of the summer fun come in with them. When they head back to class, it's the perfect time to clean up the summer dirt and get your house for a new season.

    Benefit #2: Get Ready for Fall and the Change of Seasons

    Nothing feels better than starting a new season with a clean slate, and that clean slate should include your home. Spring cleaning is good, but fall cleaning gets you set up for the season ahead and the holidays that follow, leaving your home looking and feeling great. It helps ensure everyone can relax and settle into the new routine that comes with a new school year.

    Benefit #3: Eliminate the Pollutants before Winter

    Winter is cold and flu season anyway, but don't forget about all the pollutants your carpets can be hiding. Bacteria, mold, and pollen are just a few of the things hiding deep down in the fibers of your flooring. Getting them out and getting your house clean can help keep everyone healthy as kids head back to classrooms full of germs.

    It's important to have your carpets cleaned at least once a year, and back-to-school is the perfect opportunity to get it on your to-do list. For carpet cleaning you can count on any time of year, contact our pros at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners.

  • 2 At-Home Cleaning Tips for Leather Furniture

    leather-furniture-cleaning

    Do you have leather furniture you really love? If you do, then you know what an investment it is, and you want it to last as long as possible. It's not as hard as it seems to keep it clean and help give it a good, long life. Here are two simple tips for at-home cleaning you can do regularly:

    Break Out the Vacuum

    The vacuum is your friend when it comes to your leather furniture. The key is to use a soft brush attachment so you don't scratch the material. Regular vacuuming can help keep the dust and dirt off the surface and out of the crevices. It's the dust and dirt that can work its way into the leather and cause it to age and break down prematurely.

    Mix Up a Simple Cleaner

    Leather furniture is great because it doesn’t absorb liquids and crumbs the way upholstery does, but it still needs some regular cleaning. You can mix up a simple solution of water and white vinegar, which is mild enough not to damage the leather, but is a natural cleaner and can take off some of the surface buildup and spills that might get on your furniture. Use a soft cloth and rub gently to remove spots and dirt.

    It’s easy to do basic maintenance on your leather furniture to keep it clean and looking good, but it’s just as important to have it professionally cleaned once a year as well. Professionals can get out the deep down dirt and protect the leather itself so that you can enjoy it for years to come.

    For professional leather furniture cleaning to keep your investment looking great, contact our expert team at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners.

  • 3 Tile Cleaning Tips We Love

    tile-cleaning-tips

    Have you tried to get your tile looking bright and clean, to no avail? That's because cleaning tile and the grout in between can be a struggle and a challenge. What are some tile cleaning tips you can use? Take a look at three we love:

    Tip #1: Vacuum and Sweep

    The first step to clean tile is vacuuming and sweeping regularly. Sweeping can get the big stuff up, and vacuuming can help rid the floor of the small particles of dirt and dust that work their way down into the grout and make it look dirty.

    Tip #2: Mop It Up, Regularly

    Mopping is important to keeping your floors clean and protecting the tile. Use something mild, like a vinegar and water solution, and a soft mop as often as necessary to make sure you don't have spills and stains that can discolor the tile and the grout. It will help keep your house clean and make it easier to maintain the tile.

    Tip #3: Don’t Forget Professional Cleaning

    Lots of homeowners plan to have their carpets cleaned professionally at least once a year, but don't forget that your tile needs expert care, too. Everyday maintenance is critical, but professional cleaning can get the grout lines clean, shine and polish the surface of the tile, and protect it from abuse over time.

    One way to keep your tile looking great is to take care of it daily with simple cleaning steps. But professional cleaning is the way to make it shine to keep it looking like new. For tile cleaning you can count on, contact our team of experts at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners today.

  • 4 Benefits of Home Pressure Washing This Summer

    pressure-washing

    Pressure washing is just for cars and sidewalks, right? Wrong! Did you know you can pressure wash the outside of your home? It might be time to consider it. Here are four benefits you might not have considered for your home exterior:

    Benefit #1: Prep the Patio for Summer

    During the winter, the weather can take a toll on your patio or deck. It can leave behind dirt, dead leaves and mold. Pressure washing can get rid of the gunk that's built up, leaving it looking like new and ready for summer parties and spending time outdoors.

    Benefit #2: Spiff up Those Driveways and Sidewalks

    Pressure washing is for sidewalks…and driveways! And a little pressure washing can make a huge difference in how your driveway and walkways look, giving an instant boost to your home’s curb appeal.

    Benefit #3: You Don’t Have to Do the Gutter Cleaning This Spring

    No one likes to get on a ladder or the roof to clean the gutters. Instead, let the pros come in and use pressure washing to clean the roof and gutters, get the winter mess out, and leave them ready for the summer rains. It can keep you off the ladder and leave the gutters wide open to do their job.

    Benefit #4: Pressure Wash Instead of Paint

    If your house is looking dingy and you think you might need to start saving for new paint, start with some pressure washing first. You will be pleasantly surprised how different your house will look once the dirt and dust wash away and the house looks clean and bright.

    Is your house ready for summer? Get it clean and looking great with pressure washing from our team at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners.
