There are four seasons in a year…if you get sick when the seasons change…it might not be the climate that’s causing the illness!
The most efficient way to stay clean and healthy is to hire professional restoration companies or cleaning companies. Be sure they use eco-friendly products on all of your surfaces, so there’s no risky residue or toxic debris left behind.
For the Die Hard DYI’ers
If you have plenty of free time or LOVE to clean (like us), and want to take care of the cleaning process yourself, turn on some Beastie Boys because it’s bound to get a little bit TRICKY! Here are some of the methods used by the best restoration companies and cleaning companies.
Put on a dust mask and BEFORE cleaning heavily soiled spots or areas in carpets, blow dry them or, as professionals like to say, to spoil them. This step helps you remove a good deal of dust and dirt particles impregnated in fabrics. In the heavy traffic area, where you travel more often, you need to run the vacuum cleaner in north, south, east, and west directions to better absorb impurities and to get all of the damaged loose fibers removed.
Once you have finished vacuuming, find all of the areas that still show damage from stains. Spray them with ice cold clean water and let the fabric soak for a few minutes.
Wipe excess water with a clean cloth and use solutions that are suitable for the given type of stains; look for products with citrus or eco-friendly elements instead of toxic chemicals.
After the substance that stained your carpet has been soaked, rub the light area with a brush or a microfiber cloth. Now you’re disintegrating the mess! Be patient and repeat these steps instead of trying to rub harder or using harsher products.
A half-water , half-vinegar solution is ideal for cleaning carpets stained with chocolate, coffee, tea, milk, juice, or wine. After applying the solution, break the stain, then wipe the area with a CLEAN dry cloth.
Carpet shampoo is fairly easy to find in any store. It engages the carpet fiber and dissolves the dirt, neutralizing unpleasant odors after a few treatments. Don’t be alarmed if there’s excess foam. Be patient, let it subside for a few minutes, and then continue shampooing.
This is also sold in almost every grocery store or convenience store. After the carpet has been shampooed, sprinkle this powder on the carpet and let it rest for at least half an hour. All you have to do next is vacuum. Basically, the borax and bicarbonate particles only absorb the dirt from the carpet. Microscopic impurities are removed and you will also revitalize the color of the carpet and eliminate unpleasant odors.
How long does all this take?
Patience young butterflies (and bees). The entire process usually takes a couple of hours per room because you need adequate time between steps to let the products and fibers flex and rest. It’s ideal to ventilate the rooms while cleaning as well. The debris has to evacuate somewhere – your lungs don’t need that problem!
For very small carpets, rugs, and doormats it can take as little as 30 to 45 minutes. If you have fancy pants rugs, proceed with extreme caution! You can damage the fibers beyond repair.
Set sail to bacteria from dirt, debris, chemicals, and toxins by deep cleaning at least twice per year. We recommend syncing with the 4 seasons to stay clean and healthy. Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t real, living, breathing, and breeding!

How to Identify Mold
Mold is a fungus that grows from moisture. It is usually first noticed as tiny black spots in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and basements. It can grow in any area of your home or business because there’s hidden plumbing behind the walls. Thermal imaging inspections are highly beneficial in detecting hidden risks that can’t be seen with the naked eye.
A moldy surface is NOT the same as a dirty one. To test for mold, simply apply a FEW drops of cleaning bleach on the moldy area. If it lightens after a few minutes then it’s almost always mold. If the mildew or yeast looking area remains dark, it is probably just deep dirt stains that can be cleaned with several sessions of deep cleaning.
How to Get Rid of Mold
Mold can destroy the integrity of walls, floors, ceilings, carpet, vents, appliances, rugs, frames, and many other items in your home or business. Left untreated, it can be harmful to health. Mold can cause allergic reactions to skin, sneezing problem, as well as irritating odors.
