Removing Spots From Your Carpeting In SW Florida

Specialized Spot Extraction Technique

 

On average, Tru-Clean Carpet & Tile Care cleans close to 80 homes per week, and the first thing our technicians ask the client is “are there any spots that are bothering you or seem to come back after you’ve had your carpets professionally cleaned?

Inevitably, the majority of our clients will say that a particular spot keeps coming back or that their previous carpet cleaner told them that a spot is “permanent.”

First, let’s address the two reasons why spots keep returning after your carpeting has been professionally cleaned.

Reason 1: Wicking

Many times, the cause of the spot has seeped into the backing of the carpet. This is common with pet urine, beverages, and anything that is spilled in “volume.”

When something has spilled on your carpeting in a large quantity, the liquids penetrate the carpet backing and reside in the padding where they dry and remain dormant until reenergized with steam cleaning.

When cleaning your carpeting, steam is injected deep in the pile thereby moistening the underlying cause of spots returning.  As the carpeting starts to dry, these residues will rise to the top of the carpet fibers within a week or so, and once again, you have the same spots you had before the cleaning.

When the carpet is cleaned it looks good, when it dries the spots and traffic areas come back.

Reason 2:  Re-soiling

Re-soiling is caused by a sticky residue that has been left behind. The residue may be from the spot itself, a spotting agent the client used in an attempt to remove the stain or the cleaning solution the carpet cleaner used when your carpets were last cleaned.

Some common residue causes are over-the-counter carpet cleaners purchased at the grocery store. Avoid using these cleaners altogether. If you have to use one or you use dishwashing detergent, use as little as possible and rinse with water thoroughly.

Other residue causes would be oily spots. Duct tape residue, body oils, lotions, etc. If all of the oily residues are not removed, they will attract soil as the carpet is walked on. Even a quality professional cleaning may not remove all oily residue the first time.

SPECIAL NOTE: Cheap carpet cleaners use the cheap products that are ineffective at removing deep-set soils and oily residues.  If you’ve ever hired a carpet “cleaner” because they were the cheapest you could find, chances are, spots appeared after “cleaning,” residues from the detergent used were left behind, the carpet fibers were stiff, and the carpeting resoiled rapidly.

Tru-Clean Carpet & Tile Care’s technicians are trained to ask clients what concerns them about their carpeting and then tailor a custom cleaning around those concerns.

In instances where spots keep returning, our technician will use specialty spotting agents designed to force contaminates that are deep set in the carpet and padding to release where they can be removed by a specialized extraction tool.  We guarantee spot removal and if a spot returns within 14 days of our cleaning, we will return at no extra charge.

Why did my previous carpet cleaner say a “spot was permanent” and your technician was able to remove it?

The answer is simple; they lacked experience, tenacity, and probably certification or specialized training.

Recently we were contacted by a new client and asked to clean her carpeting.  When our technician arrived and was performing a walk-thru to access the carpet needs, the client advised him to “ignore that Kool-Aid stain; my previous carpet cleaner said it is permanent.”

After a few minutes, our technician was able to eradicate the Kool-Aid spot and the client was beyond pleased.  Since the previous carpet cleaner worked for a large national firm, she asked why they would tell her something that wasn’t true.  The answer is Experience!  Their technician didn’t have the training, specialized tools, or proper spotting agents necessary to perform the spot removal.

Carpet Cleaning – Pet Urine Treatment Throughout SW Florida

Pet Urine In Carpeting As Seen With Xenon Lighting

Pet urine can cause permanent damage to your floors and fabrics. It can also create an unhealthy indoor environment.

The warm acid state of urine offers a perfect breeding ground for bacteria, which will begin to flourish almost immediately upon deposit. In this original acid state, the urine begins to oxidize and react with the carpet or another textile to create a color change, which will become permanent if the urine is not treated immediately.

Some of this color change can be attributed to the strong ammonia that forms as urine passes through bacterial and chemical evolution. If left for days or weeks, depending on the fabric or floor type, urine salts and acids will change the dye structure, therefore causing permanent staining. Even if the soluble deposits are removed, the damage to the dye structure may already be done.

The Best Cleaning Agents for Urine and Other Biological Matter

Enzymes are the best cleaning agent for urine, vomit, and feces. Enzymes are the only cleaning agent that digests harmful bacteria. For the best results use an enzyme spotter after you have rinsed the carpet, especially if the spot is not a fresh one.

WARNING:  Many over the counter pet odor and/or stain removers contain oxidizers and can cause color loss.  If your carpet is new, such color loss can void the warranty.

Products To Avoid

Try to stay away from products with high pH such as ammonia, Resolve, and oxygen bleaches. These products will leave the carpet with a residue and in a high pH state, which will enable the carpet to attract dirt like a magnet. In some instances, the use of the wrong product can cause the urine stain to be permanent. Please call Tru-Clean Carpet & Tile Care first if you are not sure about a product you may want to try.

How Tru-Clean Carpet & Tile Care Treats Urine and Odor In Carpeting

  • When presented with a urine issue, our technician will check the carpeting, mattress or upholstery with a Xenon light designed to cause organic matter to “fluoresce” or glow.              The discovery of organic matter will allow us to determine how severe the problem is and the correct amount of enzymes to use to eliminate salts, biological matter, and off-gassing.
  • Once the urine deposits are located, the technician will treat these areas with a product designed to lift the salts and address any staining present.
  • We will then mix the appropriate amount of enzymes and flood the affected areas in sufficient quantity so that the enzymes will penetrate the carpet backing and underlying padding.
  • We will allow the enzymes sufficient dwell time, usually thirty minutes.
  • Upon completion of the dwell period, the technician will use a specialized tool to extract the enzymes, urine salts and bacteria from the carpeting and padding
  • We will then clean the carpeting as usual
  • The technician will then treat the carpeting once again with enzymes and use a fan to facilitate drying
  • Your carpeting will no longer off-gas and will be urine free

Please note:  Because bacteria is a living organism, and enzymes are designed to consume bacteria, the enzyme treatment will continue to work for a period of 7-14 days until its food source (bacteria) is no longer present.  Enzymes are harmless to pets and infants.

Keep Those Carpets Clean Or Your Mother-in-Law Will Talk About You

If you’re expecting guests this Memorial Day holiday, carpet, tile and upholstery cleaning can be an important step in making sure your home is ready for out of town visitors.

Not only will the whole house look fresh and inviting, but you can also remove dirt and grime before it leads to permanent damage and odor. A professional deep cleaning by Tru-Clean Carpet & Tile Care will also eliminate one more thing from your to-do list, making it easier to tidy up before entertaining guests.

Here are three important reasons to schedule a carpet cleaning service before holiday guests arrive:

  • Improves Sanitation: When guests arrive who have children, they often sit on the floor to play or watch television. If your carpets or tile are dirty or have pet urine issues, kids can pick up germs and allergens that may make them sick. A professional cleaning eliminates these contaminants, improves indoor air quality and reduces the risk of respiratory health problems.
  • Indoor Air Quality: Some guests with allergies may be sensitive to dust mites, pollen, pet dander and other allergens trapped in your carpeting.  Carpeted floor coverings are the largest filters in our home and can trap allergens leading to polluted indoor air quality.  If you have pets in the house, they contribute their fair share of unpleasant odors too. Professional cleaners use steam power to get rid the unwanted scents before guests arrive, ensuring that all they smell is fresh-clean carpeting, tile, and upholstery.
  • Prevents Permanent Staining: The longer a spill or pet urine remains in the carpeting, the increased likelihood of what was once a “spot” has now become a “stain.” The difference between a “spot” and a “stain” is that spots tend to act as a covering agent that can be removed with a thoroughly exhaustive cleaning, whereas a stain removes color, and is often  As an example; if you spill peanut butter on your favorite jeans, this is a “spot” and will remove with a good cleaning.  On the other hand, if you spill bleach, this is a “stain” and will not remove with a cleaning, no matter how hard you try.

Preventative annual carpet cleanings will improve air quality, help prevent permanent staining, and make your home more inviting while preserving your carpet’s warranty and lifespan.

Moreover, one final “good reason” to clean your carpeting before holiday guests arrive, especially if one of those guests is your mother-in-law, is to prevent her from talking about you behind your back about how dirty your home is.  😊

Quality Carpet Cleaning Throughout SW Florida

Everyone wants a great bargain. The rise of online shopping and price comparison websites means that we all get to enjoy the best deals on favorite products, and can secure the lowest prices on our favorite brands with a few keystrokes.

We also enjoy the privilege of returning a product we have purchased online if it does not meet our expectations. Wouldn’t it be nice if home services worked this way too?

Cheap Carpet Cleaners

Many homeowners make the mistake of using a “cheap” carpet cleaning service because they are lured in by the price. Many believe that “a carpet cleaner, is a carpet cleaner is a carpet cleaner” so they give no thought to quality and will call everyone in the phone book to get the “cheapest” price they can find.

When the “cheap” carpet cleaner shows up at their home and delivers a high-pressure sales pitch and substandard cleaning, it is too late for the homeowner, they’ve been HAD!

When it comes to carpet, tile or upholstery cleaning in SW Florida, you will get what you pay for.

High quality or cheap carpet cleaning services?

An excellent carpet cleaning service will use top quality products that gently but effectively treat your carpets without damaging them or leaving a sticky residue to promote re-soiling. This is especially important if you have pets, children or anyone in the home with an allergy.

Cheap products can strip carpets and leave damaging chemical residues and a high pH which is detrimental to fibers.  Cheap cleaning solutions leave behind contaminants that pollute indoor air quality, not to mention skin rashes on babies and pets who may be crawling around on the carpeting.

Professional Carpet Cleaners

A quality carpet cleaning company will employ professionals in the field who can accurately assess the nature of your job and apply the right treatments in a reliable, results-driven way. Carpet, tile and upholstery cleaning is a specialist field and requires an expert touch.

Anybody, no certification necessary, can perform a cheap service.  Cheap carpet cleaning companies could care less if your pets are allergic to their cleaning solutions, and forget about customer service after the sale.

Certification, Industry Recognition and Consumer Advocacy

A quality carpet cleaning company is certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the International Carpet & Rug Institute (CRI).  They will also have high rankings with the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List.

Quality companies will employ experienced-certified technicians, utilize industry leading equipment and safe cleaning solutions, and will maintain liability and workers compensation insurance to protect their clients and employees.

Many “cheap” carpet, tile and upholstery cleaning companies could care less about industry certification, top quality equipment, reviews, or insurance.  For the most part, their clients could care less either, until something goes wrong.

Reviews, Reviews, Reviews

When choosing a contractor to perform work in your home, investigate them by doing a little research online.

VERIFIED reviews can be found on websites maintained by the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List.  Both of these consumer sites are FREE.

It may surprise you to know that anyone can create a fake name and e-mail address and post reviews on websites such as Yelp, Google, Yahoo, etc., and in the service industry, “fake reviews” are prolific.

With Angie’s List and the Better Business Bureau, the identity of the reviewer can be verified along with the review, so individuals who post “fake” reviews stay away from these sites.

Remember, there is no such thing as “cheap” carpet, tile or upholstery cleaning services. You will get what you pay for.

If you want to ‘go cheap’ then brush your carpets and upholstery with a stiff brush and vacuum them regularly to remove dirt and debris. Do this and save up for a professional, thoroughly exhaustive cleaning. You will end up with a far better result overall than risking your home to fly-by-nighters.

Grout Coloring and Sealing. Is It All It’s Cracked Up To Be?

The short answer is, it depends.

When performed by a quality contractor using a quality product there is much value and in many circumstances the absolute best option without question.  A professionally cleaned and applied grout colorant/sealant should be GUARANTEED FOR LIFE!

The problem in SW Florida is some businesses are touting this service yet doing nothing more than ‘painting grout’ with what amounts to house paint or another type of acrylic.  For this reason, these colorants will not last, and that is the reason their durability is not guaranteed to outlive the client.

Quality color sealers repel oil and water-based liquids, which will prevent food and beverage stains. Also, the specially formulated colorants and sealers used at Tru-Clean Carpet & Tile Care contain mildewcides and other agents that inhibit the growth of bacteria and mildew. These mildewcides not only offer health benefits by making your floors more sanitary but can reduce or eliminate the unusual smells you often find with older floors that have absorbed a variety of offensive liquids such as pet urine.

There are aesthetic reasons for choosing color sealing as well. When you have areas where only some of the grout needs replacing, it is virtually impossible to match the color of the new grout to the old grout. Even if you use the identical product and color, aging and wear have already altered the look of your previously installed grout, and the difference is usually noticeable.

Color sealing will provide a consistent look across the board, making all of your grout look new again.

And not just new —color sealing can completely change your grout to virtually any color you choose.  Tru-Clean Carpet & Tile Care can match any of over 100,000 colors.

Are you considering new decor, an updated, fresher look or more contemporary colors? Your existing grout does not need to hold you back or limit your choices. Color sealing is a way to harmonize with and complement remodeling without the expense of regrouting. With color sealing, you can even change from a dark shade to a lighter one or simply match the original color of your original grout.

Sounds great, doesn’t it? Well, it is, but there are a couple of cautions that you need to be aware of.

First of all, grout coloring is not a do-it-yourself project! A proper application that ensures complete protection over the entire surface of your floor is an art that requires training, professional equipment and practice to master.

Secondly, professionals not only have the training, experience, and tools to do the job, but they also have access to a wide variety of professional sealers and are better equipped to select the right color and application that is right for your circumstances.

Finally, not all grout color sealing services are the same. The quality of the product coupled with an application applied by an experienced professional is critical!

Some companies —even some that may surprise you —are using products that are tantamount to house paint. It may look great right after they finish, but within a short time, the paint peels. Not only that, but this type of product does not have the properties of a lifetime color sealer, such as the constant acting mildewcides or true stain prevention assets.

Be sure to do your due diligence, and don’t hesitate to thoroughly question your prospective provider and ask if they are willing to stand behind their services with a lifetime guarantee.  If not, why not?

All tile and grout cleaning and sealing companies are NOT the same.

Our experienced technicians can remove the affected area from your carpet by cutting out the damage and replacing it with another piece of the same carpet.  For the carpet patch, you will need a spare section of the same carpet (if you have leftover carpeting) or we can take a donor patch from a closet or other hidden area.

Carpet Stretching – Re-Stretching – Do you wish that you knew of an easy way to remove the ripples and bumps in your carpet?   Ripples in your carpeting present trip hazards and can be dangerous if not repaired.

There are several reasons why wrinkles occur in carpet, and many variables can be involved. The most common is a faulty installation.

Tru-Clean Carpet & Tile Care uses specialized tools and a power stretcher to stretch even the stiffest of carpets until the excess slack is removed.  We then re-attach your newly repaired carpet to the tack strip and your carpets appearance will be wrinkle-free.

Make That Old Tile Floor Look New Again SW Florida

Grout that has been color sealed

Grout that appears in the joints of most ceramic and porcelain flooring throughout SW Florida is much more vulnerable to problems than the tile itself.

Grout is porous and is primarily sand and a small amount of cement, leaving it susceptible to all sorts of stains. Any spill will be quickly absorbed and can leave behind a permanent stain. Tracked in dirt can also leave behind stains, mold or mildew.

Over time, grout can be damaged to the point where it will no longer clean up to an acceptable appearance.  Exposure to pet urine, improper cleaning agents, drink spills, and everyday traffic can “ugly” grout, and no cleaning in the world can make it look new again.

What can be done?

Professional cleaning and color sealing by Tru-Clean Carpet & Tile Care can restore the beauty of your tile flooring to a better than new appearance and help keep it that way.

If your grout is discolored and stained or, if you wish to change or match the color of your grout, it can be cleaned, colored, and sealed. Recoloring your grout can give the appearance of a whole new floor. Furthermore, color sealing will prevent moisture, dirt, and grime from being absorbed into the grout.

Maintenance is as simple as a routine mopping, and color sealing by Tru-Clean Carpet & Tile Care is GUARANTEED to last for infinity or as long as you own your home, whichever comes first.

Correctly color sealed grout will make your tiled areas look brand new while giving it a look of luxury that is hard to match with any other type of flooring.  Color sealing is affordable, and we can provide thousands of different color choices.

Tru-Clean Carpet & Tile Care is the “cleaner of choice” to many of our areas leading interior designers, floor covering specialists and contractors when it comes to restoring the beauty of tile flooring for a fraction of the cost of replacement.

So Your Home “Stinks” In SW Florida. Now What?

Are you “nose blind” to offensive odors in your home?

It is not just food, cigarette and stale odors that turn guests and potential buyers off when visiting your home.  Pet dander and urine off-gassing are offensive to many people, particularly those with allergies, and having a “stinky home” can reduce the resale value by 29% or more.

In many instances, homeowners are nose blind to offensive odors in their home because there around them all the time.  Similar to a smoker who can not smell cigarette odor in their house, those of us who own pets are no longer sensitive to their dander or little accidents here and there.

Professional stager Tori Toth of Stylish Stagers in New York City is the go-to person many successful realtors turn to when listing a home for sale.  Tori explains that no matter how successful the staging project if the home “stinks” it will not sell for asking price, and in many instances, will sell significantly below what the homeowner has listed.

Regardless if you are getting ready to sell your home or just want to create an inviting space by reducing indoor air pollution and offensive odors, here are a few tips from our realtor friends and Stylish Staging.

Don’t Mask.  Treat

Odor is created by off-gassing bacteria and tar that attaches itself to ceilings, air ducts, walls, carpeting, furniture, and drapes.  Plug in air fresheners, carpet deodorizing powders, air fresheners and the like will only temporarily mask the odor.  The offensive molecules are still there and will rear their ugly scents within 2-3 days.

To efficiently deal with odor and indoor air pollution, you must eliminate the source of the problem.

If your home is not subject to cigarette or offensive cooking odors and if pets have not used the carpeting and furniture as a public toilet, a professional allergen free steam cleaning of the carpeting and upholstery using the appropriate cleaning enzymes will help eliminate most odors.  Professional carpet, tile, and upholstery cleaning companies such as Tru-Clean Carpet & Tile Care have a host of products designed to help eliminate odor.

Ozone Treatment for “STINKY” Homes

If the home smells like cigarettes or has a stale smell, an Ozone treatment coupled with an enzymatic fogging can reverse offensive odor by eliminating the molecules causing the malodor.

Ozone removes odor by destroying the molecules, bacteria, and spores that cause unpleasant smells.

Without getting technical, Ozone is quick to chemically react with particles that it comes into contact with in the air and on surfaces.  Ozone attaches itself to offensive molecules and chemically changes their structure to create a non-offensive molecule the odor is removed.

Tru-Clean Carpet & Tile Care’s Ozone and odor treatment services are relied upon by leading realtors, interior designers, and hotels to rid premises of offensive odors.

Realtors may ask for an Ozone service for homes they have recently listed.  Hotels use Ozone services to rid rooms of cigarette and pet odors, and many homeowners and interior designers will ask for an Ozone treatment for a home has a peculiar smell or just needs to be freshened up.
