Have You Received Bad Carpet Cleaning Advice?

Have You Received Bad Carpet Cleaning Advice?

Everyone has advice for everyone these days – and they post it all over social media, too! Have you received bad advice about carpet cleaning? We at Cincinnati Maintenance are often told things from our Cincinnati area customers that they’ve “heard” or “been told” about their carpets, and some of this advice is just not true! Here are a few examples: “My carpet doesn’t look too dirty, so it does not need a deep, professional cleaning.” Did you know that if you wait for that big stain or spill for a professional cleaning – that if you don’t clean your carpets because they “look fine,”  – you may be risking carpet damage and a shorter lifespan of your carpet investment? Dirt, grime, soil, and pet hair/dander can make its way deep into your carpet fibers, and, while you may not see it if you are vacuuming regularly, this can do damage deep within your carpet. Having a deep, professional cleaning extends the life of your carpets. “Carpet shrinks when you get it professionally cleaned.” Actually, carpet can shrink if it is not properly cleaned by a professional who is trained and uses appropriate equipment and products. When improper cleaning leads to improper drying time, that’s when the threat of shrinkage becomes viable. Cincinnati Maintenance’s technicians are certified, are highly trained, and use a low-moisture method with appropriate, “clean,” “green” products to ensure your carpets are cared for in a manner that produces good, safe results.

Two Reminders to Protect your Floors & Carpet During this Insane Weather!

Two Reminders to Protect your Floors & Carpet During this Insane Weather!

It’s nice, it’s ugly, it’s sunny, it’s rainy, it’s icy, it’s rainy again, it’s sunny, it’s ugly, it’s nice, it’s icy, it’s rainy again. Ugh! Crazy Cincy weather! Here are two important reminders to protect your floors and carpets during this time of ever-changing weather in Cincinnati: Salt, rock salt or other ice-melting compounds are baaaaaad for floors and carpet! Tracked in, it can get ground in to your nice hardwood and it also can really damage carpet and rug fibers. Be SURE to have an mat outside your door as well as one inside to get rid of salt before it gets tracked in. Another note: ice-melting mixtures can be poisonous to pets – so be mindful! Vaccum up any rock salt that gets indoors right away. Mud gets tracked in during this rainy time! Yuck! The best thing to do for mud or clay on your carpet is to scrape up what you can with either a plastic spatula or plastic spoon. Allow the remaining soil to dry and then vacuum it up. Most of the time, this process works. Just keep in mind, you don’t want to force the soil into the carpet any further, so try to avoid smearing or rubbing the dirt when wet. If you have any questions about floor or carpet care or you need our cleaning assistance, Cincinnati Maintenance is just a phone call away – (513)...
Allergy Season is Here – Keeping Your Home Clean Can Help

Allergy Season is Here – Keeping Your Home Clean Can Help

It’s that time of year – sneezing, sneezing, watery eyes, sneezing, sneezing. Did we say sneezing?  Yes, it’s ALLERGY season! There is not much you can do about outdoor allergens, but one way to combat your allergies is by keeping your home clean and your indoor quality at its best! Cincinnati Maintenance can help! Did you know that some people believe that not having any carpet at all reduces allergies in the home? But, other experts say that carpet increases air quality because it traps known allergens and keeps them out of your home’s air. If you do have carpet, keeping it clean is the best way to reduce the annoying sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes of allergies and and could possibly reduce asthma issues as well. Regular vacuuming is your first defense! A consistent deep carpet cleaning once or twice per year is your next best bet to keeping your carpets as clean as possible – and hopefully improve the air you breathe in your own home.
