There are many reasons Wisconsinites rejoice when spring comes. There’s the warmer temperatures, outside activities, summer blooms, sun…the list could go on and on. There’s also the spring cleaning, which includes window washing, cleaning quilts and carpet cleaning (for a list of other spring cleaning tasks, read our recent post). Yes, you read that last item right. Spring is an ideal time to rid your carpets of all the winter grime and spring mud. Why? Here are 5 reasons spring is and ideal carpet cleaning time:
The kids aren’t around all day yet. Spring is an ideal time to move all your furniture out of the room you need carpet cleaned, and move it back in before they have to go to bed. Summer carpet cleaning is a bit more logistically challenging because now you have to move the furniture and worry about occupying them (though there are solutions to this challenge too!).
Get rid of the spring mud. Yes, the spring thaw also brings out the spring mud. Carpet cleaning is an ideal way to rid your carpets of the mud and prepare for summer.
You can do fun things this summer without worrying about carpet cleaning. Prompt spring carpet cleaning means one less thing to worry about later.
Warmer temperatures mean you can open the windows during carpet cleaning. It’s a very nice advantage of the warmer spring temperatures.
Say good-bye to pet stains. Did you just get done potty training your puppy? Or do you just want those pet stains gone? A good spring carpet cleaning can rid your home of those winter pet stains.
If you want a deep carpet clean with green carpet cleaners, call Y’s Way Flooring. A professional carpet cleaner can remove more stains than renting a carpet cleaner yourself, and has more expertise and carpet cleaning experience.
Wisconsinites, it’s the time we’ve been waiting for all winter! Our cabin fever is gone because spring is here. The subzero temperatures (hopefully) are gone. With the warmer temperatures of spring comes lots of outdoor time and (drum roll, please)…the much anticipated (or dreaded) spring cleaning. That’s right, it’s time to air out the house and give your home a deep clean that goes beyond your regular vacuuming and house cleaning. So where do you start your spring cleaning? We’ve put together a handy spring cleaning checklist to help you get through your deep spring clean:
After days of sub-zero temperatures and biting Wisconsin cold, we’re ready for spring. (For Wisconsinites that’s any time the temperature hits above freezing.) What we’re not ready for is the mud. The mud that our kids, dog, pets and guests track all over our carpets, laminate, vinyl, tile and wood floors. The muddy footprints and puddles that cause us to leap into action, just short of a panic attack, and scramble to find a towel to clean our very loved floors—or at least floors that we want to stay looking loved for a long, long time (even if we really don’t love that carpet, laminate, vinyl, tile or wood floor). So how do you stay ahead of the mud in your home?
For wood and laminate floors, clean up any mud as soon as you can with a towel, and keep your wood floor clear of any puddles that might damage your wood floors. If you need to use any liquid to clean up a particularly dirty spot, dry the floor as soon as you are done. Sweep up the pebbles and stones often to avoid scratches on your wood and laminate floors.
For carpet, test an area of the carpet with your carpet cleaner for color fastness first. If your carpet cleaner has tested safe, apply the carpet cleaner to the mud and blot gently with a soft cloth working from the outside in. Avoid scrubbing as that might damage the carpet. When done, apply a small amount of water to your cloth and blot again. When the mud is out and the carpet is drying, vacuum the area. Make sure your carpets are professionally carpet cleaned every 12-18 months to keep them looking their best. Check our Facebook page for carpet cleaning discounts.
For vinyl and tile floors, a wet cloth or mop works best. Make sure you get the dirt out of the grout so it doesn’t stain.
