01 Sep Fall is Furniture Cleaning Time
Furniture Cleaning in Leesburg
Giving your house a spruce-up isn’t just for spring. As the fresh, crisp air of fall approaches, why not give your house a chance to shine?
Fall is the perfect time to freshen up your home. You can open the windows to let the air in. Dust and pollen levels are lower. If you have kids, they’re heading back to school instead of tracking dirt into the house all day. You’ll also feel great when the holidays arrive and your house is already clean and bright, ready for parties and visitors.
Leave it to Carpet Keepers
Upholstered sofas and chairs are prone to many kinds of stains. Pets can leave dander on them, people sometimes put their dirty shoes on them, dust mites invade them, and our bodies leave oil and sweat on them. These might be invisible stains but they affect your home’s cleanliness and your family’s health.
Carpet Keepers’ patented PureScience method gets down deep in the fabric. We begin with a thorough, professional vacuuming and then use our safe, non-toxic formula to completely destroy old stains, smells, pet accidents, germs, toxins, and allergens.
PureScience is the only method that kills and removes dust mites from your carpets and upholstery. Dust mites are a contributor to asthma and other health problems, so getting rid of these little pests should be at the top of your fall cleaning list.
You might think you’re saving money if you try to clean your upholstered furniture yourself. That’s a bad idea for several reasons.
You’ll probably use the wrong product. Most upholstery and carpet cleaners that you can buy in the store just don’t provide the true, lasting clean that professional cleaning does.
They are full of dangerous chemicals. In most cases, they simply mask odors with a strong perfume rather than removing them. And finally, they can actually make stains worse by driving them deeper into the fabric.
Don’t take chances with your home’s health or your family’s safety. Only PureScience uses clean, nontoxic ingredients that are safe for people (or pets) with allergies, asthma, and chemical sensitivities.
Leather and Vinyl
Contrary to what many people think, you can clean leather upholstery with soap and water. The trick here is to use only pure soap with no detergents. Wipe a warm solution of soapy suds along the leather and use a damp, clean cloth to remove the soap. You can also use special leather conditioners to keep it lustrous.
You can clean vinyl the same way. Some people suggest using a mix of baking soda and warm water to remove tough stains. Don’t use household cleaners, oils, waxes or bleach to clean vinyl.
Down-filled furniture requires special care. Begin by removing the cushions and pillow covers and washing them separately. Use your washing machine’s gentlest cycle or wash them by hand in the bathtub. As they’re drying, wash the cushions the same way. It’s best to air-dry down items in the sun but if that isn’t possible, use your dryer’s delicate setting.
Get the Smell Out
If your furniture cleaning involves washing pillow covers and throws, get an assist from Mother Nature by hanging them to dry outside. Sunlight is a natural disinfectant and deodorizer.
Smells in your house come from many different things. Pet accidents, food and drink spills, chemical air fresheners, cooking odors and many other parts of daily living can all contribute to smells in your home.
With PureScience, Carpet Keepers can remove all those sources of bad smells. Our method doesn’t just cover odors. It erases them at the root so they don’t come back.
Refreshed and Ready
A new season is a great time to get your house revived and refreshed. With Carpet Keepers’ help, you can greet fall with a home that looks and smells like new. Clean furniture and carpets last longer, look better and keep your family safer, so call Carpet Keepers and schedule a consultation. You’ll be ready for fall in no time.
