Summer cleaning tips that will give your home a fresh look!

New York Carpet Cleaning, Inc. is excited to start the new season with these summer cleaning tips to make your home even homier and beautiful for the new season! And in no time, after you're done with all your summer cleaning, you will be ready to enjoy the summer relaxing with fruit and refreshing drinks!

It's a good idea to start the hot season with clean carpets so call your local carpet cleaning company to give you a fresh start.

We always like to recycle old items and get some ideas of how to best utilize them and convert them to masterpieces. It's not only great for the environment but will also save you some money! But if you can't recycle these old items, you might want to sell them. Kids love garage sales, so why not let your kids organize, prepare and help with the garage sale. You not only clean out your closets, but you will also be making a little extra cash.

Embrace the summer with incorporating brighter decorations in your home. Remove anything that evolves heat, such as heavy drapes, rugs, fire logs, etc. Replace those with beautiful fresh flowers, candles, and lightweight mats. Put winter away!

Paint: Summer is a great opportunity for projects to update your door trims, windows, picnic table, deck, or any other piece of furniture that may need a fresh coat of paint. If you have the time and your rooms might need it, paint them with bright and light colors. You'll be amazed to see what a fresh paint job does for a minimal amount of cash and in no time at all!

Clean your grill: A good idea to clean your grill while it is still warm. Scrub those grates with a wire brush. If you have a bigger mess than most, then take the grate off the grill and place it in a ventilated area. Use rubber gloves to protect your hands, then spray the grates with an oven cleaner. That will melt down the sticky grime.

Clean the washing machine: most washing machines have a foul odor during summer time, especially in high humidity areas. To get rid of that smell, run an empty load using hot water and detergent. Once the washing machine is complete, keep the door open to let it dry thoroughly.

Clean your dryer vent: Many old dryers are the cause of home fires. It's a good idea to clean your dryer vent if you haven't cleaned in a year or two. First, unplug the dryer. If you have a gas dryer, shut off the gas. Pull the dryer out a bit, just to the extension of your vent hose. Loosen the vent clamp on the back of the dryer with a screwdriver. Slide the vent off the dryer, then reach as far as you can into the hole and also into the vent tubing and pull out all the lint and build up. You may need a vacuum cleaner to vacuum around thoroughly as well. After this is completed, slide the clamp back on. If you can do this yourself, remove the vent on the outside and clean that as well.  Have a great summer!

5 Myths About Carpet Installation

Even if stories about magic carpets have become a thing of the past, our society as a whole still produces a surprising number of myths about carpeting. Take the five popular myths about carpet installation below, for instance—all of them are unequivocally false, yet if you walk into a room full of hardwood floor enthusiasts, you'll be sure to hear at least one of them espoused like the gospel truth...

1. Carpet installation is expensive—flooring is cheaper.

In reality, carpeting is one of the most affordable floor covering solutions. It's cheaper to install than hardwood flooring, but like hardwood flooring, it can last decades when properly cared for. Likewise, while there are some flooring options which may be cheaper than carpet installation in the short term, they are generally quite flimsy and will wear out quickly; when you factor in the cost of replacing a cheap floor every 5 years, carpeting still works out to be the more affordable option.

2. Having carpet installed means you'll have to endure years of tiring daily maintenance.

People are often warned against carpet installation for residential spaces because, according to the naysayers, carpet is simply “too much work” to clean and maintain vs. flooring. In reality, however, unless you have a penchant for 70's style shag carpeting, you'll find that carpet is a lot easier to look after than, for instance, hardwood. After all, you only have to vacuum carpet weekly and have it steam cleaned once a year—you don't have to sweep it, polish it, wax it, buff it, then strip its coating every few years and have a complete replacement put down...

3. Carpet installation for commercial spaces is frowned upon because carpets trigger asthma/allergies/harbor bacteria.

Wrong again: Carpeting helps to trap airborne particles like dust and pollen to that they aren't circulating in the air and therefore getting inhaled by everyone who passes by. Only extremely dirty carpets pose any threat to people with allergies, asthma, or weakened immune systems; as commercial buildings are always professionally cleaned regularly, there is no reason to avoid installing carpeting in them. Carpet also offers a number of benefits for commercial buildings, such as noise reduction and greater insulation (resulting in lower energy costs).

4. You shouldn't install carpet because it's bad for the environment.

Like most home furnishings today, carpet can be manufactured from “green” materials. And, due to the insulation benefits mentioned above, having carpet installed in your home or office can reduce how much energy your family or business needs to use—which is good for the environment.

5. Underlay thickness doesn't really matter.

When having carpet installed, it's important to remember that the underlay supports the carpet, just like your house's foundation supports your home. Always choose the correct underlay quality and grade for your needs, even if it costs slightly more.

Not convinced yet? Talk to a certified carpet installation specialist about any questions or concerns you have—you might debunk another common carpet myth in the process. +Lowe's Home Improvement

 4 Easy Ways to Remove Wrinkles from Your Drapes or Curtains:

We all know that drapes and curtains could be very costly, and many homeowners invest in luxury curtains and fabrics because they want their home to look beautiful and luxurious. However, when you do not want to invest a lot of money on your window coverings, there is always the online buying option. These drapes and curtains usually come in a tight packing and too often badly wrinkled, even if they are “wrinkle-free” material. Those creases will stay even after you hang your new drapes. Fabrics such as polyester, nylon or Lycra will not need ironing, but nobody really uses these materials for window coverings. Here we give you some tips to easily removing those wrinkles from your new drapes and curtains.

It's always a good idea to read the label on the drapes and curtains to learn how to best treat the fabric. If it says on the label to dry clean, then it is highly recommended to take it to a professional drapery service for best drapes and curtains wrinkle removal or professional drapes and curtains cleaning. Otherwise, just apply water for a faster wrinkle removal.

1. Washing machine and dryer – first, use a gentle cycle, short cycle to wash the drapes. Remove drapes or curtains from washing machine and place them in the dryer. Set the dryer for a cool or permanent press cycle. A good idea to add small towels so the curtains won't bunch together and wrinkle.

2. Dryer – You can also put the drapes and curtains inside the dryer (without washing them first) with a wet or damp towel using a delicate or permanent press cycle.

3. Fabric Steamer – After installing the drapes and curtains on a rod, fill fabric steamer with water. After the water gets heated, slowly move the fabric steamer over the drapes. Best to work from bottom to top. Repeat process if necessary. If you still see wrinkles, steam from the underside of the fabric. Do not place the nozzle of the steamer directly on delicate fabrics such as velvet or silk.

4. Iron – Use low setting to iron away the wrinkles. However, for more stubborn wrinkles, use a cloth over the fabric side of the drapes or curtains if you need to use a high setting. You could also spray water over the fabric and gently iron on low setting to smooth out the wrinkles. +Home Decor

Most Common Mistakes of Vacuuming Your Carpets:

Vacuuming is one of the most basic and essential household chores. It keeps your house clean, and free of harmful allergy-causing bacteria. However, as important as the process of vacuuming your house is, if it is not done properly it may become a useless exercise all together. Exactly what qualifies as a mistake when you vacuum? Here you will find the most common mistakes to avoid when vacuuming your home:

Do not vacuum in a rush: Vacuuming is not a 100-meter dash. You should slow down when vacuuming. The vacuum works by a suction process, therefore, it is important to take your time when going back and forth with the vacuum. Cover all the areas of your carpet while vacuuming slowly to allow the vacuum cleaner to suck up all the dirt. If you vacuum slowly, the brush of the vacuum will agitate the carpet’s fibers properly.

Prepare the room before vacuuming: There are certain objects that should not be vacuumed, such as pieces of glass, pins, coins, etc. Make sure the floor is clear of such items, because they can ruin your vacuum cleaner.

Don’t wait until the bag is full: Makers of the vacuum cleaner advise that vacuum cleaners work best when the bag is half full with dirt. It is important to ensure that you empty your vacuum cleaner often, because if you vacuum when the bag is full, it loses its vacuuming efficiency.

Using the wrong attachment with your vacuum cleaner: Most vacuum cleaners come with various attachments. For example, when cleaning in tight spots, the Crevice tool is the most appropriate attachment to use because of its fitted angled tip.

Vacuuming in every direction: This is the most common and frequent mistake. When vacuuming, particularly a rug, the best cleaning experience is achieved when you vacuum in both directions (back and forth). This allows the vacuum cleaner to pick up all the dirt lodged into the deep fibers of your carpet or rug.

Adjust the height of the vacuum: For more efficient vacuuming, it is highly recommended to adjust your vacuum's height as you move the vacuum cleaner from the rug to hardwood floors! Some vacuums are automated. If yours is not automated, be sure to make the appropriate adjustments.

Now you are well on your way to getting the best vacuuming experience, and your house will thank you for it!

The Importance of Mattress Cleaning to Your Health:

Ever tried sleeping on a bed without a mattress? Or have you ever slept on the floor with just a carpet cushioning the hard effect of the floor on your body? Mattresses are those fluffy, comfy things we sleep on that makes our nights soft, relaxed, and help us wake up without feeling like we just had a 5-mile run while we were asleep.

However, though everyone agrees that mattresses are essential to life, good health, and comfort, mattresses are usually the most neglected of household items when it comes to keeping them clean. We erroneously assume that using clean beddings (bedsheets, duvets, etc.) and changing them ever so often equates to having a clean mattress, but this is usually not the case. Mattresses still retain most of the body oils and skin extracts that come off our bodies when we sleep. Apart from all of these mentioned, why then is it important to clean our mattresses?

To stay healthy and allergy-free

When we sleep, which the average human does for about 8 hours every day, we shed dead skin cells from our body coupled with a lot of sweat. These dead skin cells are fed on by dust mites which thrive in areas of warmth and moisture –which our bodies produce a good amount of during sleep– and the sweat stays on our mattresses breeding germs, bacteria, fungi, etc.

These bacteria are responsible as causative and/or agents for allergies such as asthma, eczema, rhinitis, etc.

To maintain a good and quality indoor air

During sleep, it is not uncommon for our bodies to turn this way and that. However, what happens when we do this is that dust and other air-polluting materials get put up into the air and we breathe these in while we sleep. These materials have been known to be the cause of common, mild ailments such as throat itching, eye soreness, and other more serious respiratory health issues such as respiratory congestion etc.

So, now that you know why you should clean your mattress, how can you clean it and how often should this be done?

Though there are professional cleaning services who specialize in mattress cleaning, you can clean your mattress yourself by using your traditional vacuum cleaner to remove the dust and other dirt. However, you should make sure to thoroughly wash your mattress at least twice a year to ensure the best, healthy, and most hygienic sleeping experience your body deserves. #mattresscleaning

How to Recycle Your Old Carpet

Rolls of old carpeting resting by the curb are a familiar sight during the summer “renovation season,” but they shouldn't be; every year, a staggering five billion pounds of carpet is needlessly deposited in American landfills. This is especially problematic because the vast majority of carpets are made out of artificial materials that do not easily biodegrade; the waste from old carpets, therefore, builds up over time, putting a progressively greater burden on the planet.

Fortunately, the American government has partnered with various industries to create the Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE), an organization which aims to promote the recycling of old carpets. In the past, carpets were difficult to recycle owing to their complex construction, but CARE has stepped in to form a national network of recyclers that have the knowledge and equipment needed to turn old carpet into raw materials. These materials can then be used to manufacture a variety of everyday products.

There are a few caveats to be aware of when seeking CARE's services, however: One, CARE is not yet well-established and as such, its recycling program may be not available in your area; two, CARE is not free. Depending on where you are located, you can expect to pay from 5 to 25 cents per pound of carpet when enlisting CARE's recycling services.

Alternatives To CARE

If CARE is not available in your area or you cannot afford to hire their services, don't give up; there are other ways to recycle old carpets efficiently:

1. Contact individual carpet companies in your area to see if they will take your old carpet off your hands. Some carpet companies offer carpeting lines that contain recycled material; as such, they may be willing to let you ship your old carpets to them free of charge. Ask your local carpet dealer for advice on which companies near you offer this service.

2. Donate your old carpet to charity. If your carpet is still in “like new” condition, you may be able to donate it to a charity that specializes in providing low-income housing, such as Habitat For Humanity. Old, worn carpet typically cannot be donated to charity due to health concerns, but you may find a willing taker on a “give away” service like Freecycle.

3. Find ways to reuse some or all of the carpet. Reusing is ultimately superior to recycling from an environmental perspective as it requires no energy use and produces no emissions. You can reuse some or all of your old carpet by cutting it up and using it to create pads for kitchen chairs and heavy pieces of furniture, mats for high traffic areas (e.g. sheds, gardens, and workshops), bedding for pets, insulation, and scrubbing pads.

Remember, we only have one planet, so it's essential that we do everything we can to protect it. By recycling your carpet—however, you choose to do so—you will be keeping a great deal of harmful waste out of American landfills. +Recyclebank

The Benefits of Organic Carpet Cleaning: Why You Should “Go Green”?

While many people are aware of the health risks posed by having a dirty carpet, too few of us realize the potential dangers—both to ourselves, our pets, and the environment—posed by conventional carpet cleaning techniques. As such, organic carpet cleaning has yet to become the “default” choice for those who are seeking carpet cleaning services or attempting to clean their own carpets.

If you're unfamiliar with the benefits of organic carpet cleaning, it's a good idea to do some research and come up to speed, particularly if you have pets or children in the house. Green carpet cleaning carries all of the following advantages:

It's safer. While conventional carpet cleaning techniques are usually safe if employed by a professional carpet cleaner, many traditional at-home carpet care products like dry carpet cleaners are surprisingly toxic. Most dry carpet cleaning products and liquid stain removers contain chemicals like perchloroethylene, which is known to cause nausea, dizziness, fatigue, and possible damage to the liver and kidneys, and naphthalene, a substance manufactured from coal tar. Naphthalene causes damage to the central nervous system and is a known carcinogen.

It's important to be aware that because some of these chemicals stay embedded in the carpet long after the dry cleaner is vacuumed up, children and pets (who spend more time in contact with the carpet than adults and who are more vulnerable to poisoning) are placed at risk of significant illness.

Green carpet cleaners, on the other hand, are made of purely organic substances and do not carry any serious health risks.

It's better for the environment. The toxic chemicals in conventional carpet cleaners inevitably end up in the waterways of the world, where they slowly accumulate, contaminating both fragile natural habitats and clean drinking water supplies. Green cleaning products lack these harmful effects on the environment as they are biodegradable and non-toxic. Green carpet cleaning processes also use less water, which places less demand on the world's dwindling supply of fresh water.

Green carpet cleaning is more convenient. If you're used to conventional carpet cleaners, switching over to green cleaners can raise questions, namely, “Will gentle, green products still be able to clean thoroughly?”

If you have such concerns, you'll be happy to know that not only do green carpet cleaners efficiently get rid of bacteria, allergens, and dirt. They are also easier to use. Since organic carpet cleaning methods require less water, carpets dry quicker than any other method. Meaning, that you will no longer have to wait over 24 hours to walk on your freshly-washed carpet; instead, you'll be able to use your carpet again after just one hour.

Green cleaners extend the life of your carpet. Organic carpet cleaning techniques extend the lifespan of carpeting both by preventing mold growth and by preserving the color and texture of carpet fiber. Green carpet cleaning methods do not soak carpets with water, so the moist environment mold spores need to thrive in never forms. Additionally, because organic carpet cleaners are free of harsh chemicals, they do not cause carpets to fade.

If you have any questions or concerns about green carpet cleaning not addressed above, contact a professional carpet cleaning service for more information. You'll soon discover that most people who “go green” have only one regret—that they didn't do so sooner.  +Organic Consumers Association

Stain Remover Techniques That Will Impress Your Family:

Stains have always been a frustrating issue, especially when it's on your favorite blouse or your new carpet. So what do we do when a drop of ketchup lands on your new jacket or when your favorite pen is leaking in your pocket? Don't get rid of these clothes just yet. We have some awesome tips for you on how to remove the toughest stains from your favorite clothes, fabrics, and carpets. Tackle these stains with confidence and most importantly, right away so they won't set in into the fibers for too long. So first thing first, you must soak or pre-treat the stains as soon as possible with one tablespoon of enzyme laundry detergent and two cups of water for twenty minutes. Rinse thoroughly. It's a good idea to test a hidden area of the fabric first to make sure the product you use doesn't damage the garment. Try using an enzyme detergent to break down the proteins, which are specifically designed to lift out the stains.

Chocolate: Wait until it's completely hard before you remove it. Use colorless dish-washing liquid and water. Blot using a white cloth. For chocolate milk stain, use a few drops of ammonia. For the dark chocolate stain, use two tablespoons white vinegar (for color fabrics) or hydrogen peroxide (for white fabric).

Red Wine and Fruit Juice: Apply one tablespoon of salt over the stain, and let the salt absorb the wine. Then soak the fabric in the enzyme laundry detergent and water mixture overnight. If you're not home to do this, then use club soda to try and remove some of the stains right away.

Coffee: First, spray the spot with stain remover and let it sit for fifteen minutes. Then wash the garment in warm water using the enzyme detergent mixture. You can also use liquid dish-washing detergent with hot water. For coffee with milk, it's best to use an oil solvent stain remover.

Grass: Spray the soiled spot with stain remover, and rub the fabric with an old toothbrush to get the product deep into the fibers. You may use white vinegar with water or ammonia to remove the rest of the stain if it's still there. Another method to use for Grass stains is Methylated spirits or denatured alcohol.

Crayons: Use a product that is made for sticky materials, and let it work for 15 minutes. Then rub it in and try to remove the stain. You may also use liquid dish-washing detergent with warm water.

Blood: Spray stain remover on the spot and let it soak for ten minutes, then rub the fabric together. Rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary. You may also use Hydrogen peroxide on white and light-colored fabrics. Another method is to soak the garment in a saline solution (two tablespoons salt for every quart of cold water).

Ketchup and Other Tomato-Based liquids: Always a good idea to immediately rinse under cold water. And when you're able, soak the fabric in warm water and apply dishwashing soap, then rub the spot gently to try and work out the stains. For stubborn stains, use methylated spirits. Another excellent method is to spray stain remover and let it soak for 15 minutes. Use white vinegar with water to remove the rest. +Good Housekeeping

Great Idea Tip: Protect Your Carpets And Fabrics with Scotchgard Protection

Carpets have a shiny, sometimes glossy-look to them. Their glossy look comes from the synthetic fibers they are made of which includes polypropylene, polyester, or nylon. They come in different colors and thicknesses as some are lighter than others. The word “carpet” is usually interchanged with the word “rug” though a carpet covers the entire floor surface of a house while a rug usually covers just a single room.

But, enough of the definitions and technical stuff. Carpets are life savers! Their glossy nature and composition makes them ideal for houses that have abundance of kids or pets as they help to make cleaning easy and usually do not allow for downward penetration of liquids to the floorboard or tiles beneath.

However, even though carpets come with a natural liquid repellent surface, this, usually, is not 100% protective, particularly when it comes to other stains. Carpets, therefore, also still need some form of additional layer covering to protect them. This is where the Scotchgard protection comes in.

ScotchgardTM Protection is produced by the 3M Company in the US and is widely acknowledged to be a very effective and efficient carpet and fabric protector. Scotchgard protection comes in an aerosol (can) and is applied by spraying on the required surface. What makes its application absolutely interesting is that you can do it yourself so come on and let me show the very simple steps on how to use it.

Step 1: Preparation
You need to make sure that your carpet is clean before applying Scotchgard so as to avoid anything being trapped beneath. You can do this by vacuuming your carpet first to rid it of dust and other unwanted dirt. You also need to make sure that metals or any floor fittings with metallic surfaces are covered using tape that would not leave any sticky residue after removal.

Step 2: Ventilation
You need to make sure that your room is well ventilated as Scotchgard leaves a slight chemical odor in its wake but this is easily dispelled with proper aeration and cross ventilation.

Step 3: Application
On the back of the Scotchgard can are instruction for its application. You should spray your carpet and fabric twice for maximum effectiveness. Also, to get the best experience, let your carpet or fabric get dry in between coats.

Scotchgard can also be used on other items such as bags or purses made of fabric. Follow the above steps and your Scotchgard-treated carpet, bag or even purse is now able to fully repel liquids and other stains! +Scotchgard™ Brand

How to Clean Your Home After Water Damage And Avoid Mold?

It no secret that water can cause a lot of damage. Not only it ruins our carpets and furniture, but also because of the rapid mold and bacteria growth. Water damage could be from a source which may include water, fire, storm, etc. 90% of home or business owners must have experienced damages caused by water. Once an establishment has sustained this kind of damage, it becomes imperative that a cleanup or water damage restoration process should be initiated immediately. It becomes extremely necessary to treat the matter as an emergency situation.

There are three categories of water damages: Category one, clean water with sources from broken devices and pour out of the sink. Category two, contaminated water with sources from broken toilets and sump pumps. Category three, it’s otherwise known as black water and the sources sewage, etc.

Mold is very dangerous and toxic for people, with breathing problems in particular. But it will definitely cause a big risk to healthy people. Flood in the home that caused by sewage is the most dangerous. That is why it is very important to stop mold and bacteria growth. You have about 24 to 36 hours to work with. We have found this helpful guide written by Rebecca Morley, executive director of the National Center for Healthy Housing: Creating a Healthy Home. #waterdamagerestoration

An excellent carpet cleaning experience. The worker was on-time, and true to the estimate given over phone. They were thorough, and easy to communicate with. The carpets and rugs look great. I will certainly hire them again.

Two men arrived on time to give the estimate, introduced themselves and shook hands. Nice presentation! We agreed upon a price--a fair price--and I picked date and time for delivery. Two different men arrived exactly when they said they would (within a two hour window) and laid the rugs which had been cleaned beautifully. A thoroughly pleasant experience; I recommend them based on my experience.

We had 12x20 wall-to-wall carpeting that badly needed cleaning, and two old recliners that had wear marks and stains. The two men who came were amiable and did a terrific cleaning job on the items. The price was very fair. Service all-around was prompt and accommodating.

(This may be my 2nd review - I responded to an earlier email) Anyway, I will say more or less the same thing again, which is that the entire experience was professional. The employees were on time, polite, careful with my furniture and belongings. I had never had carpet cleaning done before so wasn't sure what to expect. It was actually simpler than I thought it would be, and most important of all, my carpets look terrific!

With two dogs and three two kids our carpets needed cleaning! I had tried to take the stains out myself but no luck. I called New York Caret Cleaning and made an appointment. I had great experience with the company. They are very reliable! After they were done cleaning, my carpets looked incredible. the stains were removed beautifully. I was very pleased.
