3 Top Tips For Cleaning Dog Drool Saliva From Sofa

August 26, 2021

No one tells you when you adopt a dog quite how messy they’re going to be. And anyone who grew up watching Beethoven knows that dog drool can be a serious gross-out. Obedience and cuddles and soft brown eyes are lovely, but they don’t quite eliminate the horror of finding a nice puddle of doggy drool staining your sofa. 

Saliva and drool can be fiddly to deal with because it is a protein-based stain that may also contain tiny bits of food. That particularly lovely combo requires more specialist attention than you might think.

At BCS, we’re experts at handling the unadvertised horrors of canine yucky saliva stains from your sofa. Here’s our 3-step drool attack process:

1 Combine half a cup of hydrogen peroxide (3%) with one teaspoon of ammonia. Apply to the stain with a clean, dry cloth, taking care not to soak the sofa fabric. Be sure to test the solution in an inconspicuous area first.

2 Allow to sit for 30 minutes, then blot with clean paper towels.

3 Apply cool water to the area, then absorb the liquid and dry the area by applying repeated pressure to a thick pad of paper towels over the area. 

If after employing these suggestions you’re still struggling with saliva stains, or if the stains are older and seem to be set in the couch, call BCS today at 801 561 1730. We’ll have your sofa set to rights in a jiffy.

Top Tips For Deodorizing Carpet

August 12, 2021

Carpets can be both beautiful and functional, but with their abundance of absorbent fibers, they can also soak up undesirable smells. Follow our quick, green process to remove nasty stinkies from your lovely soft carpets.

You will need:

½ cup baking soda

½ cup borax 

1 tspn ground spices (Cinnamon is a great option to try on dark carpets – DO NOT USE on light-colored carpets as it may stain; essential oils may be used instead) 

Mix the ingredients in a bowl and store in a dry, well-ventilated place in an airtight container. Sprinkle the mix on stinky carpet and leave it on for at least 30 minutes. The baking soda is a powerful smell absorber, especially of pet smells. 

Vacuum thoroughly after thirty minutes and you will be left with just the delicious scent of warm spices.

If you’d like to have your carpets deep-cleaned as well as deodorized, give the professionals at BCS Cleaning Utah a call today at 801 561 1730 to schedule your carpet deep-clean.

How To Clean Windows After A Storm

August 4, 2021

Summer storms are wonderful. They bring much-needed water to the Salt Lake Valley and Park City.

They also leave their mark with much-unwanted water spots all over your formerly-pristine windows. The swirling desert dust and aggressive squalls quickly ruin your lovely clean, leaving them covered in grime and spots.

So how can you restore your windows to their pre-rain sparkle?

If your windows were recently cleaned, a quick once-over with a damp microfiber cloth and a few sprays of equal parts white vinegar and water should remove the storm residue quickly and easily.

If your windows were already in need of some love, or all that wiping sounds too much like hard work, it’s probably time to call in the pros.

BCS Cleaning Utah have been keeping the Salt Lake Valley’s windows and carpets sparkling clean since summer storm immemorial.

Our crew are professional, experienced, friendly, fast and thorough. And we love making your windows all fresh and sparkly again!

If your windows need a post-storm attention, give BCS a call today at 801 561 1730.
