    cleaning-high-traffic-areas

    What to do with all that dirt on your carpet after the holidays.

    Were you the host with the most over the holiday, leaving you with lots of great memories, and a dirty carpet? Don't fret! There are some easy ways for dealing with high traffic areas in your home after company leaves. Take a look at these three tips:

    Tip #1: Do Vacuum

    If you can, vacuum high traffic areas daily during the holidays. Everyone is trying to spend as much time as possible with family, so don't go crazy and do the whole house. Just take a minute and do a quick sweep where people walk and gather the most. It will make a big difference in how much dirt works its way down in the fibers of your carpet over the course of the holidays.

    Tip #2: Don’t DIY Cleaning

    It's tempting to want to get out some carpet cleaner and start scrubbing those traffic marks, but don't do it. It's easy to get the carpet too wet, which can damage the carpet and the padding, or to use too much cleaning product, which can leave a residue that attracts more dirt over time.

    Tip #3: Cleaning After the Holidays is A-Okay

    While many people choose to have their floors professionally cleaned before the holidays to prep for guests, it's okay to have them cleaned after the holidays instead. Lots of people in and out can leave a trail through the high traffic areas in your home, especially if it's wet outside and they're dragging in the dirt and mud. Have the pros in after the holidays to get your home back to being clean.

    Don't ignore the high-traffic areas in your home after company leaves, because it won't get any better on its own. Contact our team of pros at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners to get your dirty carpet back in shape after company leaves.

  • 3 Vacuuming Tips to Help You Prepare for Thanksgiving

    vacuuming-tips

    Thanksgiving is coming, are your vacuuming skills up to the task?

    If you're cleaning your house and prepping for Thanksgiving, make sure vacuuming is on your list. Here are three vacuuming tips you can use to help you prepare for the holidays.

    Tip #1: Getting It Done Early

    Vacuuming is probably part of your routine weekly cleaning, but if you're hosting family and friends for Thanksgiving, it's good to plan for heavy cleaning. Vacuum your whole house thoroughly a week or two ahead of time to make sure you get most of the dust and dirt up, even in areas where people won't gather.

    Tip #2: Focus on High Traffic Areas

    Everyone runs short on time around the holidays, especially if you're hosting your family for turkey day. Instead of trying to do a deep clean at the last minute, focus your vacuum on areas that get the most use and traffic. This usually includes the front hall, bathroom, living room, dining room, and kitchen. If you have time, do a quick once-over in the bedrooms, but if not, just close the doors.

    Tip #3: Plan Ahead with the Pros

    If your carpet is less than pristine, plan ahead and have your carpets and flooring professionally cleaned a few weeks before the holidays hit. It can get you ahead of the game with your cleaning, get out any stains or deep down dirt, and make your house look, feel, and smell great, just in time for the festivities.

    Vacuuming is essential to keep your carpets clean, but professional cleaning is vital to getting your home ready for the holidays. Contact our team at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners to get your pre-Thanksgiving appointment on the books.

    Feeling like your furniture could be a little less odiferous?

    We all know that feeling when you sit down in a chair or on the couch to relax and you end up trying to figure out what that odor could be. No one wants stinky furniture. Here are two foolproof tips for getting lingering odors out of furniture.

    Tip #1: Pick the Right Upholstery Cleaner

    There are plenty of professional carpet and upholstery cleaners out there who are more than happy to take your money and do a mediocre job. The trick is to find professionals who know how to perform a deep cleaning. Anyone can clean the surface of your upholstery with nicely scented products, and it may feel like you got a good deal, at first. Once that fragrance wears off, you'll realize that your furniture is still dirty and that it still smells less than good. Picking a reliable cleaning company with the right tools and products will ensure your furniture is clean and deodorized.

    Tip #2: Skip the Home Remedies

    There are lots of common causes for odors that could be lingering in your furniture. It could be cooking smells, pet odors, or even bacteria and mold. It's critical to make sure that deep cleaning gets those pesky contaminants out of the fabric and padding in your furniture. Doing it incorrectly could not only cause the smell to stick around, but it will start to damage your furniture and make it look bad in addition to smelling bad. Skip the home remedies and go straight for the pros with the big guns.

    Instead of living with smelly furniture, make a quick call. Get the right team out to your house to get it cleaned and deodorized for a real difference in how your home looks and smells. Contact our expert team at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners to get the lingering odors out of your furniture.

  • 3 Ways Mattress Cleaning Could Help Relieve Your Fall Allergies

    mattress-cleaning

    Could mattress cleaning give you a better night’s sleep?

    Most people spend about one-third of their lives in bed, and if you haven’t had your mattress professionally cleaned, you’re not making the most of that time. Why? Because your mattress is a hotspot for fall allergies. Here are 3 ways mattress cleaning could help give you relief from allergens:

    Number One: Dust Mites

    Dust mites are among the most common allergens to show up in mattresses, and you’re not alone. This happens to everyone. It’s unavoidable. And you would never know they were there if you had to try to see them, but they can wreak havoc on your respiratory system and cause allergy symptoms that range from subtle to full-blown misery. Professional cleaning can rid your bed of these pesky microscopic creatures.

    Number Two: Pollen

    Pollen is still in the air this time of year, and it can come into your home on your shoes and clothes and in your hair and on your skin, and then it gets into your bed. Pollen can cause horrible allergy symptoms in those that are sensitive to it, so get it out of your mattress with regular cleaning.

    Number Three: Mold and Mildew

    If you get into bed after taking a shower, or you go to sleep with wet hair, or if you, like most people, sweat when you sleep and you don’t have your mattress professionally cleaned, you could be sleeping with mold and mildew. When your mattress gets damp and isn’t allowed to dry completely, due to sheets and blankets and pillows that are piled on top, you risk being exposed to this allergen that can cause more than just a little irritation.

    Allergens do not make good bedfellows. Contact our expert team at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners to schedule your mattress cleaning today.
