How Do I Clean & Remove Tortoise Turtle Reptile Pee Urine From Carpets?

September 17, 2020

Turtles are adorable with their ancient, wise little faces and slow shuffle. Until their little leggies can’t get them to the turtle bathroom in time and they pee on your carpet. Nice. Before screaming bloody murder and making a dash for the hills, here’s the lowdown on getting that mess up off your carpet.

Plan A

1 Blot (never rub – this just pushes it in further) to absorb as much of the liquid as possible

2 Cover the area with a generous sprinkling of baking soda. Baking soda (bicarbonate of soda is its fancy name) is a miracle product, and it’s worth investing in a Costco-sized crate of the stuff for multiple stain-related emergencies. 

3 Allow the baking soda to sit on the stain for at least an hour before vacuuming it up.

Plan B

If you’re still left with more reptilian DNA on your carpet than you’d like, mix together a half cup of hydrogen peroxide (3 percent) and one teaspoon of ammonia (use a clothes peg for your nose); apply to the affected area with a rag, leave it to do its thing for thirty minutes, then blot dry. 

Plan C

For a final rescue remedy, saturate the area with club soda (the fizzy will help loosen and lift any leftover discoloration) and blot dry again. 

If you’re still in dire straits and the above hasn’t quite rescued you from turtle tinkle, give the experts at BCS a call at 801 561 1730. Our professionals will have your carpets spick and span in a jiffy!

How Do I Clean & Remove Tortoise Turtle Reptile Poop Feces From Carpets?

September 10, 2020

Turtles are adorable with their ancient, wise little faces, slow shuffle and centenarian skin. Until their little leggies can’t get them to the turtle bathroom in time and they relieve themselves on your carpet. Splendid. Before screaming bloody murder and making a dash for the hills, here’s the lowdown on getting that mess up off your carpet.

1 Pick up as much of the solid mess as you can with paper towels.

2 Spray on a solution of one part white vinegar to two parts cool water with a clean spray bottle. 

3 Blot and allow to dry. This will disinfect and de-smelly the area. 

4 If there is a stain left, use a carpet spot-treatment to endeavor to get the last of it up.

If you’re still in dire straits and the above hasn’t quite relieved the situation (pardon the pun!), give the experts at BCS a call at 801 561 1730. Our professionals will have your carpets spick and span in a jiffy!

How Do I Clean Dog Hair From My Sofa Couch?

September 3, 2020

Dogs are lovely. If they’re trained well, have a nice disposition, don’t drool too much and don’t bite you. But a big downside to canine cohabitation is, well, all that FUR. It may be hair-etical to complain about but that doggone hair just gets EVERYWHERE – blankets, couches, carpets, bedding – not to mention frequently up one’s nose (very tickly).  

If your sofa is riddled with pokey little dog hairs and you’re at your wit’s end trying to eradicate them, have no fear – BCS is here! Follow our simple strategy for eliminating dog hair from couches in a jiffy:

1 Suck up any clumps of fur with a hand vacuum. It’s much easier to man-handle (or woman-handle, as the case may be #feminism) than a full-size vacuum and will help you easily reach into corners.

2 If your dog has a favorite spot on the sofa, run a squeegee or damp rubber glove over the surface to collect the fur and then discard the resulting pile of fluff. 

3 If there are still stubborn cling-ons, use a sticky lint roller over the surface to remove the last vestiges of caninehood. 

4 Consider training Fido in the dark arts of self-fur-maintenance (invest in a doggy hairbrush).

If you’re still struggling to get a grip on in-grown hairs (in the couch, that is), give the professionals at BCS a call. We have gotten to grips with canine fluffdom throughout the Salt Lake Valley and beyond, and will have your sofa restored to its former fibers in no time. Call us today at 801 561 1730.

How Do I Clean & Remove Cat Feline Hairball Stains From Carpet?

August 27, 2020

Oh, the joys of cat ownership! (Although the cat in question might object that it’s more a case of ‘human ownership’ #felinism). Purrs and cuddles and squinty-eyed loving looks are lovely, but they don’t quite eliminate the irritation of finding a conveniently-situated furball coughed up on your carpet…. And the resulting stain duly deposited below. 

At BCS, we’ve been mitigating the unadvertised horrors of feline ownership for our clients for over thirty years. Here’s the lowdown on how to remove pesky furball stains from carpet:

1 Remove the hairball using a piece of paper towel and discard. 

2 Create a solution of one part plain white vinegar and two parts water. Spray liberally over the affected area.

3 Blot dry using clean paper towels.

If after employing this very complicated method you’re still struggling with furball stains, or if the stains are older and seem to be set in the carpet, call BCS today at 801 561 1730. We’ll have your carpet set to rights in a jiffy.

How Do I Clean & Remove Cat Feline Hair From My Sofa Couch?

August 20, 2020

Cats are lovely. If they’re litter-trained, have trimmed claws, a nice disposition, don’t hate all humans and don’t spontaneously claw your face off in a fit of pique. But a big downside to having a feline in the family is, well, FUR. It may be hair-etical (sorry, I couldn’t resist!) to complain about but the hair and excess fluff just gets EVERYWHERE – blankets, couches, carpets, bedding – not to mention frequently up one’s nose (frightfully tickly).  

If your sofa is riddled with pokey little kitty hairs that like to attach themselves all over your clothes and you’re at your wit’s end trying to eradicate them, have no fear – BCS is here! Follow our simple strategy for eliminating dog hair from couches in a jiffy:

1 Suck up any clumps of fur with a hand vacuum. It’s much easier to man-handle (or woman-handle, as the case may be #feminism) than a full-size vacuum and will help you easily reach into corners.

2 If your kitty has a favorite spot on the sofa, run a squeegee or damp rubber glove over the surface to collect the fur and then discard the resulting pile of fluff. 

3 If there are still stubborn cling-ons, use a sticky lint roller over the surface to remove the last vestiges of feline fluffitude. 

4 Consider investing in the dark arts of fur-maintenance (buy a special kitty furbrush). Regular use can remove loose hairs before they have a chance to float off and lie in wait of your nostrils.

If you’re still struggling to get a grip on in-grown hairs (in the couch, that is), give the carpet and fabric-cleaning professionals at BCS a call. We have gotten to grips with feline fluffdom throughout the Salt Lake Valley and beyond, and will have your sofa restored to its former fibers in no time. Call us today at 801 561 1730.

How To Clean & Remove Dust Hair Crumbs From Sofas

July 23, 2020

Sofas are most people’s happy place. They’re snuggly, cosy, soft and comforting, all of which makes them an almost-immediate go-to when you get home from work (or to work from!). But the consequently plentiful breakfasts, lunches, snacks and snuggles-with-chips result in a sprawl of dust, hair, crumbs and general microscopic detritus that accumulates to fill your sofa with itchies and pokies at the most inopportune moments. But have no fear – BCS Cleaning Utah is here with two easy-peasy suggestions that will have your sofa up to snuff in a jiffy. 

1 Sticky lint rollers are one of the most versatile tools in your entire house. Keep one within arm’s reach of your sofa to quickly swipe over the surface of the sofa – grabbing hair and crumbs alike from the cushion surfaces and restoring your sofa to its former cuddlesome glory in the process.

2 Microfiber cloths are a similarly genius (and vastly underused) product. Grab a clean, dry microfiber cloth, get your hand wet and swipe it across the surface of the cloth. Whisk this across the surface of your couch and underneath the cushions for easy and effective hair removal. It really is kind of a miracle solution for hair removal.

And there you have it! Two smashing tips from the Utah kings of house cleaning – BCS Cleaning Utah. Give us a call today at 801 561 1730 to schedule your next through couch and carpet cleaning.

How To Keep Exterior Outside Windows Looking Good

July 14, 2020

Just had your windows cleaned and want to keep them looking sparkly-fresh for longer? 

Follow our simple guide to learn how to easily keep your windows looking all professionally glittery for longer. 

In this article, we’ll show you how to have the outside face of your windows back to peerless sparkledom within an hour. 

1 Make your own cleaning solution. 

For the outsides of your windows, you’ll need a stronger cleaning solution than for the insides. Rubbing alcohol and Castille soap are your friends for the task, and the combination will help you power through your windows in a jiffy. Mix together 4 tbspns Castille soap, 4 tbspns rubbing alcohol and 1/2 gallon warm water.

2 Use the right amount of product.

Most people make the mistake of over saturating a surface with cleaning solution. When you apply the product too liberally, you end up spending much more time wiping off the excess rather than actually cleaning. Using the sponge side of a double-sided squeegee, apply the solution to your window panes (do not oversaturate). A great sneaky tip to catch excess dirty water run-off is to roll up a towel and place it at the base of the window to catch drips as you wipe down the windows with the squeegee’s rubber edge. Work from left to right, top to bottom; try to keep the squeegee in constant contact with the window surface – this will help avoid squeegee-imprints. Wipe down with a soft dry microfiber cloth to remove any errant drips or streaks. 

When your willpower and stamina for touchups are exhausted, call the professionals at BCS Cleaning Utah at 801 561 1730 to schedule your professional window cleaning treatment. We’ll bring out the big guns to have your windows looking professionally fabulous in no time.
