Cozy Up on a Clean Couchlady reading on couch

Fall is here, which means that you will be spending much more time indoors! Make sure that your home is healthy, safe place for your family to be and relax in. When your home is clean, your mind can rest at ease and you can get to other important things. One way to help ensure that your home is clean and healthy is by deodorizing and sanitizing the upholstery in your home. Not only will this help to extend the life of your furniture, but it will leave your home smelling fresh and clean. Upholstered furniture traps bacteria and allergens much like carpet does. Many people forget or get too lazy and forget to vacuum their carpet. We admit, it is much more time consuming to vacuum upholstery than carpet! This is mainly due to the fact that people are unsure of how to safely and properly clean their upholstery.

Sanitize Your Furniture

Like carpet, it is important to have your upholstery cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis. This will help to improve and maintain the look of the furniture, while also eliminating the bacteria and germs that are present in the fibers. While there are many products out there on the market for cleaning upholstery, it is best to leave this type of cleaning up to the professionals. Such trained professionals will have a knowledge of what types of products to use on each type of upholstery, leaving you feeling confident that your furniture will not be ruined. In addition, they have special tools and machinery that are effective at cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing various types of upholstery. We also offer Pet Urine Odor Removal and Dust Mite Anti-Allergen, so ask your local Chem-Dry technician today! Try our powerful sanitizer, to help keep your home free of bacteria and germs!

Help from Professionals

Imagine being able to curl up on your sofa with your family or relax in your favorite chair, knowing that the upholstery is clean, fresh, and sanitized. With the help of a trained professional, this is possible. Make sure that you get your upholstery cleaned at least twice a year, along with your carpets! This is an excellent way to protect your investments, as well as the health of your home.

Call Chem-Dry of Coeur d’Alene for all your upholstery cleaning and sanitizing needs at 208-777-4116 or 208-265-4601!

5 Vacuuming Tips for Carpets

Vacuuming can become repetitive and boring after some time, but don’t let this get to you. Your carpets need to be vacuumed at least once a week. It will help to help keep the dust and dirt out of them. Below are a few vacuuming tips that will be useful!

vacuum1. Dust it Off! Before you begin vacuuming, dust your room from the top-down. What this means is to start dusting your ceiling fan and then work your way all the way down to the baseboards.

2. Move it! Make sure that small items are picked up off the floor. Don’t be lazy and try to vacuum around them! Also, check for small pieces which may be on the floor, like bobby pins or screws. This may damage your vacuum and who wants to fix that or buy a brand new one? Not us!

3. Work Backwards. Start in the back corner of the room and work your way out from the room. This also goes for stairs, start at the top and work down.

4. Check the bag often. Bags should be changed once they are half-full. The vacuum becomes less efficient as the bag begins to fill up. It may also start to leave a smell in your house if the bag becomes too full.

5. Once each week. Be sure that you are vacuuming all your carpeted areas at least one time per week. Even when you don’t ever go into your living room, ensure that your vacuum it! Stick to these easy steps and your carpets will be grateful for sure.

If you wish to treat your carpets right, vacuum them a couple of times a week! We know that sometimes you might forget and your carpets may look a little dingy, but we can help.

Call Chem-Dry to professional clean your carpets when the vacuuming just won’t do!

Over the months you may forget about cleaning the couches and chairs or maybe you might just think they don't need a cleaning. Well, you're wrong!

Home Cleaning with 5 Natural Products

Most people don't realize the harsh chemicals and toxins that are in your cleaning supplies. Some are so harsh that they recommend avoiding contact with skin and eyes, which is scary! Using your own natural green cleaning products will offer your house an eco-friendly cleaning that's powerful as well as gentle. However, this list of cleaning products doesn’t consist of toxic vapors and harsh chemicals. Here are five naturally organic products that may be found in nearly every home that do a fantastic job of cleaning without the chemicals. We have rounded them up in a list for you together with the best way to clean with them!natural cleaning tips

5- Vinegar

Vinegar is a great cleaning product that works well in the kitchen removing grease, but it also works great in bathrooms as well. Vinegar is known to breakdown grease build-up. Grease from cooking gets caked on stovetop, countertops and tables but have no fear, vinegar is here! White vinegar is a strong cleaning agent due to its antibacterial effect and acidic nature. Research conducted in Japan learned that the bactericidal effects of vinegar was enhanced as the solution's temperature increased, therefore emphasizing the benefit of using warm, natural cleaning solutions.

4- Salt

You can use it for cleaning kitchen utensils and even clearing drains. When coupled with baking soda, it can easily cut through grease too. It can also whiten discolored cutting boards if used with cool water as an everyday scrub as well as remove burn marks around dishware edges and stains from delicate chinaware. You didn't imagine that this cooking seasoning would help with cleaning, now did you!?

3- Lemon Juice

For those who look at the ingredients found in cleaners you will note there is lemon in a number of them. Well there is a reason behind the lemon juice! Lemon juice can eliminate mold and can breakdown grease as well. That is not all, lemon juice also won't leave behind streaks in your appliances and on your shower. Researchers in Nebraska took a close look at lemon oil's ability to reduce the growth of mold by applying a coat of vinegar and lemon juice to roast beef. The study illustrated the prevention of mold spore germination and development. Combine natural lemon juice and vinegar and/or olive oil to produce a tough cleaning solution that leaves a natural-smelling scent behind in the room.

2- Cream of Tarter

Cream of tartar is a by-product as a result of the winemaking process. Inside the barrels of wine, there is a white powder that is made while it is fermenting. This powder stems from tartaric acid, which naturally occurs during winemaking. It's left behind in the barrels and then later can be used for baking. Cream of tartar can be used for a variety of household cleaning tasks such as cleaning bathtub tile, removing rust stains, renewing scratched dishes, and cleaning the gunk off your toaster. To remove rust follow these steps:

  1. Mix equal part cream of tarter, salt and water to create a paste.
  2. Rub paste on rusted pan or other item.
  3. Let dry.
  4. Polish with soft rag.

1- Baking Soda

Baking soda is a natural deodorizer while offering an abrasive quality that outperforms other toxic, powdered commercial cleansers. Apply it to a variety of surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom to effectively eliminate stains and even clean grimy ovens inside. Need an extra cleaning boost? Mix baking soda and salt with a little water to enhance that scrubbing power!

All of these cleaning products can be found in your home. These 5 products don't leave behind chemicals or harmful toxins for you and your family. But when it comes to cleaning your carpet, upholstery and tile, call Chem-Dry of Coeur d'Alene. Chem-Dry is all about healthy living and cleaning, that is why a lot of our products are Green Certified! Natural carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning agents are far better for both you and the environment. Consider using Chem-Dry to support the health of your family.

Maintaining Your Rugs

Lots of people choose to cover high traffic parts of their carpet with throw rugs to protect the look of the carpet. Nonetheless, how do you protect the rugs from wear and tear? Even though it may seem a hopeless task, you will find some good tips for keeping your rugs looking their very best. With the proper attention and care, you can maintain the look of your rugs in the high traffic areas.

Pick the Best Rug

Picking the right color for your area rug is a great idea, but make sure that you also think about the material that it's made out of. You want to decide on a material that is definitely durable and sturdy. Particularly high traffic areas, the rug you choose can make a big difference in just how long it will last. Nylon and wool carpets may be good choices, because they offer a very durable material that may withstand heavy traffic from your family and pets.

Plan In Advance cda area rug blog post

Protect your rugs by limiting the amount of moisture and dirt which comes in. Place walk-in doormats by doors, being sure that family and guests wipe off their shoes or remove them. This easy precautionary method can be a very efficient way to help keep your rugs clean. If you can, you may even consider removing your shoes by the front door to keep any soil from getting into the house.

Vacuuming is Extremely Important

Frequent vacuuming is a crucial part of caring for your rugs and carpet, specifically in high traffic areas. Vacuuming really helps to lift the debris out of the carpet fiber before it settles in and damages the rug. So, the more traffic an area endures, the more often it needs to be vacuumed. This can even mean vacuuming everyday to help keep dirt and soil to a minimum.

Take Immediate Action

Places that are subject to lots of traffic may also be more likely to experience spills and accidents. Act immediately if the spill happens on your rug. If needed, apply stain or spot remover such as Chem-Dry’s World Famous Spot Remover to the impacted area. The faster you take action, the less likely the spill will soak into the rug and leave a stain. It is also good to have a professional protectant applied to your rugs as well to make clean up so much easier.

Call Chem-Dry of Coeur d'Alene for all your area rug cleaning needs at (208) 777-4116! You'll be glad that you did.

PURT

All of us love our families. Regardless of that, there are things they do that annoy us. Certain people have the common "noisy eater" in their family. Other people have parents that volunteer them for each opportunity available. Brothers and sisters can be overprotective, "clothes stealers", "secret tellers", and "cool kid wanna-be's". Pets are awesome. They're there when we need them. They bring joy to our homes. Irrespective of how they can be man's best friend, though, there's one thing they do from time to time that really can give us a stressful time. Let's be truthful, they're messy. Whether it's slobbering, tracking in mud and dirt, or having an "accident", they can make that home of ours a little bit dirtier than it should be.

Fortunately, Chem-Dry of Coeur d'Alene has the solution to any and all pet-related marks. It's not only tricky to manage a pet accident when it's occurred, occasionally the hardest part is recognizing where former incidents may have happened. Chem-Dry has discovered a way to discover the pet mishaps in your home and eliminating them (together with the smell) from your home by using our revolutionary cleaning product called P.U.R.T. (Pet Urine Removal Treatment). This product will contact the cource of odors and immediately begin a chemical reaction that, in turn, will literally destroy urine odor.

Here's how the P.U.R.T. process works:

  • A trained professional will find the odor source using a black light or penetrating moisture meter and determine the best plan of attack.
  • In worst cases they may need to pull up carpet for further inspection. If necessary padding will be replaced.
  • If necessary technicians will apply an odor blocking resin to the sub-floor.
  • After all prep work is complete, the area is rinsed with our deep cleaning carbonating cleaning solution. Any liquid or loose urine crystals are then extracted using hot water.
  • Next, we apply our proprietary cleaning product, P.U.R.T., generously to tack strip, sub-floor, baseboards and the carpet backing.
  • Over the next 24 - 36 hours, P.U.R.T. will go to work breaking down all the odor causing elements, leaving no odor remnants behind for a fresh smelling, healthy clean. The odors will be gone for good.
