How Long Will It Take My Newly-Cleaned Carpets To Dry?

February 22, 2018

Yes, I know – when you work from home or are simply AT home, it seems to take an age for carpets to dry. Usually they will be completely bone-dry within 24 hours, but often they are usably dry within 4-6 hours, depending on the type of fibers in your carpet and how absorbent they are.

 

If you simply have to traverse your carpeted expanse before they are dry, use plastic grocery bags tied to your feet to protect your newly-preened flooring. Just take care not to rush about and make sure to hold on to something – plastic on feet can be quite slippy!

 

Your carpet cleaning specialist will be able to give you a more accurate assessment of your grocery-bag-gliding timescale.

Can I Walk On My Just-Cleaned Carpets While They’re Damp?

February 19, 2018

Okay, so you absolutely MUST get to the bathroom. So how do you get across your carpets without upsetting them? Oooo you’re gonna love this solution – it’s easy, cheap AND helps the environment (sort of)!

 

Grocery bags! I kid you not, plastic grocery bags are a godsend for dealing with damp carpets. Put them on over your socks (or even over your shoes if you’re dashing in and dashing out) and tie the handles around your ankles. Leave a clutch of them by your front door so everyone can wear the latest designer fashion footwear around your drip-dry home.

 

Grocery bags are brilliant for this purpose – they work like snowshoes for carpet, distributing your weight somewhat so the carpet doesn’t get compressed in its damp state, while protecting the damp fibers from any dirt on your socks or shoes. Plus you can get around your house! Yay!

One important thing to note if you’re going to try this suggestion – plastic grocery bags are SLIPPY! So make sure you move slowly and hold on to something stable as you move around, especially if you have to get down stairs.

Why Should I Wait Before Walking On My Just-Cleaned Carpets?

February 19, 2018

Well, apart from the obvious (you’ll be plodding around in very damp socks!), there are a couple reasons why it really is worth waiting to walk on your carpets after they’ve just been cleaned.

 

1 – Protects the pile

When your carpets are cleaned, the pile gets washed out and plumped up to its new condition, so your carpet looks lovely and plush again. If you walk on it (especially on the heavy tread areas that take a pile-beating anyway), the damp pile gets flattened back down and may dry that way, which kind of defeats the objective of making it all lovely and fluffy again. You’ve probably seen this happen many times with your laundry – if you leave freshly washed laundry in the machine for long enough for it to dry, you end up with deep creases that even an iron struggles to remove.

 

The simplest solution is just to not walk on your carpets until they’re dry. If you absolutely must traverse them, try to stick to the edges (secret-agent-style), which aren’t usually walked on and so their carpet pile is more resilient than than the more frequently-traversed heavy traffic walkways.

 

2 – Damp fabric holds on to dirt

It’s exactly the same with damp clothes or even your damp kitchen rags – if you get dirt on them, the dirt tends to get wet and clings to the obliging fabric surface. On clothes, this is a relatively easy fix – you just rewash them. But do you really want to go to the trouble of having your carpets rewashed? And then you can’t walk on them for longer, and it’s all just a big, irritating disaster….

 

So how exactly do you get across the epic expanse of carpet while it’s still damp? Next week’s installment in our series will answer that in rip-roaring fashion.

Why Should I Have My Park City Utah Windows Professionally Cleaned In Winter – Remove Insect Infestations

January 18, 2018

It’s only glass, right? We wipe down mirrors and glass table-tops in our home all the time, so why should windows get special treatment, especially in winter? In our six-part guide, you’ll discover the top reasons why you should use a professional to restore your panes to their sparkling selves; yes, even in winter:

 

  1. Removing Insect Infestations

There’s no insects about in winter! I hear you protest. Ah if only…. But the insects have to live somewhere in winter, even if they are (mostly) asleep.

Bees, wasps and hornets like to make themselves comfy around windows and window screens, often building nests behind window shutters or between three-piece storm windows. Ladybugs are also common culprits, parking themselves messily in window channels, making the windows hard to open or close. A professional window cleaner will clear out any of these problems each time they come, keeping your windows spick and span and bug-free. This may also help you come springtime, when returning bees and wasps can’t find their previous haunts and move on to someone else’s window panes.

Why Should I Have My Park City Utah Windows Professionally Cleaned In Winter – Extend The Life of Your Windows

January 10, 2018

It’s only glass, right? We wipe down mirrors and glass table-tops in our home all the time, so why should windows get special treatment, especially in winter? In our six-part guide, you’ll discover the top reasons why you should use a professional to restore your panes to their sparkling selves; yes, even in winter:

 

  1. Extends The Life of Your Windows

Old aluminum screens gradually etch a pattern of deposits on the glass over time, similar to lime deposits in the shower. The etched glass is not only ugly as sin, but it is also more prone to cracks and chips. And the rigors of winter exacerbate the problem, with salt from the roads and minerals from the snow lashing against your windows.

A professional window washer can restore the glass and extend your window’s life with special treatments and tools.

Why Should I Have My Park City Utah Windows Professionally Cleaned In Winter – We Have The Right Tools

December 30, 2017

It’s only glass, right? We wipe down mirrors and glass table-tops in our home all the time, so why should windows get special treatment, especially in winter? In our six-part guide, you’ll discover the top reasons why you should use a professional to restore your panes to their sparkling selves; yes, even in winter:

 

  1. Providing the right window cleaning supplies and tools

Even glass has feelings! Professional window cleaners make sure that the right products are used to clean glass without damaging it. This is especially important in winter when your glass is having to stand up a real lashing from the elements. It needs all the help it can get!

Also, if you have leaded or stained glass, you may be unintentionally damaging it by using an ammonia-based window cleaner. With repeated use, ammonia-based cleaner can lead to clouding of leaded and stained glass windows, and the damage can’t be repaired.

Professional window washers also have the right equipment, such as ladders and telescoping window-washing tools, to safely clean hard-to-reach windows. There’s a reason home-grown window washers prefer to blame black cats walking under ladders for them falling off!

Why Should I Have My Park City Utah Windows Professionally Cleaned In Winter – Find The Real Cause of Spots

December 21, 2017

It’s only glass, right? We wipe down mirrors and glass table-tops in our home all the time, so why should windows get special treatment, especially in winter? In our six-part guide, you’ll discover the top reasons why you should use a professional to restore your panes to their sparkling selves; yes, even in winter:

 

  1. Finding The Real Cause of Spots on Your Windows

Not sure why you keep getting strange spots on your glass? It’s possible your mulch could be the culprit. And no, I’m not joking.

Cheap mulches are often infested with a fungus called Shotgun Fungus. You just can’t make this stuff up. When it’s all grown-up, the fungus shoots out black spores that glue themselves to glass and vinyl siding and are very hard to remove completely. Who knew? We did, that’s who! And winter’s nastiness can make a bad problem worse by freezing the fungus to your window panes, making them not only look nasty but etching the gristle into your glass.

A professional window-cleaning service can pinpoint the root cause of the problem, and give you suggestions for preventing the icky spots in the future.

Why Should I Have My Park City Utah Windows Professionally Cleaned In Winter – We Can Spot Problems Early

In our six-part guide, you’ll discover the top reasons why you should use a professional to restore your panes to their sparkling selves; yes, even in Winter:

 

  1. Spotting Problems Early

A professional window washer can identify problems like ill-fitting window screens, sashes that are painted shut, wood rot on windowsills, or otherwise damaged windows. And many of these issues get much, much worse during the harsh weather conditions of Winter.

Finding these issues early can often save you big bucks later on, and could even save your life. Yes, I know this sounds rather dramatic, but what if your house is on fire and your only exit is through a window that won’t open? A professional window cleaner will likely find these issues early enough to make a difference if disaster ever strikes.
