Read Tips and Tricks of the Trade

Winter is glorious, especially in beautiful Park City, Heber, Draper and Utah in general. But our winters can be harsh, with the dry air, salt, and general precipitation. Even though windows are designed to protect us tender earthlings inside from the forces of nature outside, they need good care and maintenance to keep them in tip-top shape so they can do their job well.

 

Now is the time to book your thorough Fall window cleaning, to clear your panes of any summer debris and detritus that could scratch or etch into them during the winter. Call the professionals at BCS Cleaning Utah today at 801 561 1730 to book your total window treatment. We’ll have you sparkling and winter-ready in a jiffy!

It happened. You tried the memory foam/glass of red wine bouncing test malarkey, and disaster struck. The memory foam wasn’t quite as non-bouncy as you were led to believe, or your bounce got a little out of control and you ended up bouncing ON the wine glass. First of all, ouch. Second, oh dear, there’s red wine all over my beautiful (read: expensive) memory foam mattress. Help!

Have no fear – follow our simple three-step guide to getting your mattress clean and white again in a jiffy. And if the mattress stubbornly refuses to hand over its new red wine partnership (I probably wouldn’t either, given the choice), give the experts at BCS Cleaning Utah a call at 801 561 1730. We’ll have your mattress spotless again pronto.

 

Step One

Cover the stained area with club soda and gently work it in.

 

Step Two

Sprinkle the entire area liberally with ordinary table salt and let it rest for a few hours. As the salt dries it will absorb the moisture (the red wine) from the surrounding area and lift the stain from the mattress or affected surface.

 

Step Three

Vacuum the salt from the mattress and you should be ship-shape and Bristol fashion once more.

Ahhh, the blissful, cloud-like luxury of a good memory foam mattress. And the troubling uncertainty about how the clean the thing. Aaaand then total disaster strikes and someone manages to throw up on your beautiful mattress. Disaster indeed? Havoc? Total destruction? Not necessarily – the key with a memory foam mattress is to act quickly. Follow our easy five-step guide and you’ll have your mattress in pristine condition again in no time.

 

And if you’re still having problems, give the Utah and Park City cleaning experts at BCS a call at 801 561 1730 – we’ll have you spit-spot in no time!

 

You’ll need:

  • 1 roll of paper towels
  • 1 box of baking soda. It doesn’t have to be a new box. The one that’s been keeping the freezer fresh for the past couple of months will work just fine. Just take a sniff to make sure that it smells better than what’s on the bed now.
  • 1 bottle of white vinegar
  • 1 large bowl
  • A vacuum with an upholstery attachment

 

Step 1) Fill half the bowl with vinegar and fill the other half with water.

Step 2) Gently dab up the liquid mess with the paper towel. Carefully remove any sheets and mattress covers for laundering later. Press firmly with fresh towels to absorb more liquid. Do not squeeze or twist the foam.

Step 3) Wet a paper towel with the vinegar/water solution and dab it where the vomit was. Press gently, then immediately use a fresh dry towel to mop it up. Keep this up until you’ve covered the entire stained area.

Step 4) Pour the whole box of baking soda onto the stain. Yes, the whole box. Spread it out so that you get a generous layer that extends a couple of inches beyond the stain(s).

Step 5) Let the baking soda sit there for a couple of hours. Then vacuum it up.

 

And hey presto! Order has been restored. Or, if it hasn’t quite, give the experts at BCS Cleaning Utah a call at 801 561 1730.

Ahhh, the blissful, cloud-like luxury of a good memory foam mattress. And the troubling uncertainty about how the clean the thing. Have no fear – our four-step guide is here! And if you’re still having problems, give the Utah and Park City cleaning experts at BCS a call at 801 561 1730 – we’ll have you spit-spot in no time!

 

1 Vacuum Your Memory Foam Mattress Thoroughly

Use a hand-held or regular vacuum with a brush attachment. This will help to remove extra lint or dirt and will enable you really get in the cracks and remove any dust buildup.

 

2 Treat With Homemade Solution

Fill a spray bottle with 1/2 cup fabric cleaner and 1 cup water. Shake well to make sure that the cleaner is completely mixed with the water before you start spraying. Place the mattress or mattress topper in your bathtub or on a tarp near an outdoor water source. Spray the memory foam mattress with your cleaning solution until it is completely covered, front and back. Let the mattress sit for 30 to 45 minutes. Rinse off the mattress in the shower or with a hose.

 

3 Second Treatment

Empty, rinse out and refill your spray bottle with 1/4 cup vinegar and 3/4 cup water. Shake well to combine. Spray the vinegar solution all over your memory foam mattress. Rinse the mattress again, getting all of the solution out. Clear out excess water by gently pressing on the mattress. Be careful to not twist or fold the mattress as that may cause permanent damage or warping.

 

4 Dry the Mattress Completely

Use a small fan or hair dryer to get the drying process going. Leave the mattress outside or in a well-ventilated area to dry. It may take a couple days to fully dry. You can use the hair dryer or fan every few hours to help speed the drying process along.

I've used other local franchise companies in the past and the attention to detail was always lacking. BCS's attention to detail is consistently good, they show up when they say and their service is much more personal than the larger franchises. Happy with their job everytime.
