Is Carpet Protection Really Worth the Money?

 

Many homeowners spend considerable time comparing carpet samples and researching different types of carpeting and padding before making a new flooring decision. Depending on the type and quality of carpet that you choose for your home, you can reasonably expect it to provide you with up to ten years of use or much longer in some cases. During this period of time, you understandably want it to look its best. Carpet protection is sold with some carpets as an add-on, and you can choose to continue to add carpet protection to your flooring every year or two for ongoing protection. However, is this extra expense really worth paying? A closer review of carpet protection can help you to make a decision that is best for your home.

What Carpet Protection Does

Before you can determine if carpet protection is a smart add-on for your flooring, you need to understand what it does. This is a special treatment for your carpet fibers that prevents them from absorbing liquids that are spilled onto the floor. It also reduces the likelihood of dirt and other elements getting ground into the fibers, and this is a particularly problematic issue that for high-traffic areas. More than that, carpet protection can also be used to protect the flooring from UV damage, such as fading and other issues. Be aware, however, that carpet protection is not ideal for all types of carpeting. For example, if you choose polyester carpeting, the protectant offers minimal benefits at best.

How Carpet Protection Affects Your Warranty

If you are thinking about adding carpet protection to newly installed carpeting, it is beneficial to read the fine print on your warranty. Some warranties require specific types of carpet protection in order for the warranty remain valid. If your warranty has this clause, it may be most advantageous to add carpet protection. If the warranty does not have this requirement, the selection of carpet protection is at your discretion.

The Cost of Carpet Protection

The cost can vary by provider, product, and by location. Generally you can expect a quality protectant to cost between 15 to 20 cents per square foot. This is a very affordable price for the protection that it provides. However, you also should be aware that not all protectants are the same. There are many types of protectants on the market and results vary. We only recommend using the very best fiber protection to bring you the best value.

Now that you know more about the benefits and costs of carpet protection, it is wise to explore the factors related to protecting your specific carpet. At True North Clean, we can help you to determine what type of carpet you have and what type of protectant will work best, if any. We can also provide you with a quote for applying the protectant.

If your carpeting is already stained and dingy, we provide complete restorative cleaning to bring your carpet beautifully back to life. Contact True North Clean today for all of your carpet care and maintenance needs.

If you are looking to restore the health, luster and beauty of your carpet and upholstery, or you are just concerned about your carpet’s health in general, now is the time to do something about it.

15 Helpful House Cleaning Tips for This Spring!

 

Spring cleaning your home is an excellent way to keep it well-organized and looking great! It can also improve the overall health of you and your loved ones, and help you feel great after a long winter.

As you get started on your project, use this guide for ideas on having your best Spring Clean ever!

1.) Before you start cleaning, go through each room to remove unnecessary items that are no longer needed or wanted. While taking this step, return items that have migrated throughout the home to their proper location.

2.) Walls – Remove all superficial signs of dirt and grime from the walls and trim using a damp cloth & mild cleaner. Remember to show your cabinets, doors and other built-in features some love as well.

3.) If you have pets, spend time removing pet hair from each room. A smart way to do this is to put on rubber gloves and to run your gloved hands over all surfaces. You can also grab a lint roller for great results.

4.) Clean the front patio area. Sweeping followed by power washing is usually effective, but take time to clean or to replace your front door mat for thoroughness.

5.) Your upholstery can become stained, and may absorb dust, dander and other small particles over the months and years. Clean the upholstery with a vacuum. Follow this up with a professional upholstery cleaning service.

6.) If you have wood floors, spring cleaning is a time to give them extra care and attention. Depending on the type and condition of your floors, you may want to seal or wax the hardwood to keep it looking great.

7.) Focus on the ceiling by removing dust and grime from various fixtures. This includes the light fixtures, air vents and even fire alarm features. In some cases, you may need to wipe them clean with a cloth rather than simply dusting them. While you are focused on the ceiling, remove cobwebs from the corners.

8.) Move furniture. Spring cleaning is when you should move your furniture out of the way to vacuum. Vacuum the entire surface area of each room. Get help moving furniture as needed. This will help remove dust & allergen build up. Especially in bedrooms.

9.) After vacuuming the carpet, schedule deep cleaning service. Professional carpet cleaning services can remove carpet stains and odors, and extract dirt, pollen’s, bacteria and other soild that you cannot remove with your vacuum.

10.) While spring cleaning the kitchen, open the refrigerator door and clean inside. Remove all food from it in order to clean it as thoroughly as possible. Pull the fridge away from the wall to remove dust and debris from this area.

11.) Your range and oven likewise need to be cleaned at this time. There are many cleaning products that are designed specifically for this purpose. Show love to the interior of the oven, the cooktop and all exterior surfaces.

12.) Remember that your dishwasher can clean more than just dishes. For example, hard plastic toys may be placed in the dishwasher to clean them. However, you may not want to use the heated dry cycle for toy-cleaning activities.

13.) Steam your microwave – You may wipe down your microwave regularly, but spring cleaning is a time to deep clean this appliance. Use a solution that is half water and half vinegar. Place this solution in a microwave safe dish, and turn the microwave on until steam develops. This may take as long as ten minutes in some cases. Simply wipe the moisture away for excellent results.

14.) Extra clean for bed linens – Your bedding may be washed weekly, but it requires deep cleaning from time to time as well. Place your bed linens in the washer with a good dose of Oxy Clean. This can brighten your bedding and remove lingering odors.

15.) Deep cleaning the bathroom is also essential. Bleach works wonders on mold. For limescale that has accumulated, use white vinegar or a good lime remover to break down this tough material so that you can more easily scrub it off.

While spring cleaning can be exhausting, the end result is awesome! Remember that you can recruit the help of family members or roommates to enjoy faster results.

If you are looking to restore the health, luster and beauty of your carpet and upholstery, or you are just concerned about your carpet’s health in general, now is the time to do something about it.

Do Your Air Ducts Really Need to Be Professionally Cleaned?

Plus: 6 Tips to Maintain Great Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality is a primary concern for many homeowners throughout the year, but it can be an even more pressing concern during the winter months. After all, when it is chilly outside, you and your loved ones may spend more time indoors with doors and windows tightly closed. Re-circulated air can grow increasingly dirty. The inside of your air ducts begin to build up with layers of dust, pollen’s, mold spores & bacteria.

Most homes have never had their air ducts cleaned. The build up we see is amazing, and honestly, toxic. Having your air ducts professionally cleaned every 2 years is an excellent idea to improve indoor air quality. We hear and read many stories where people suffering with allergies get tremendous relief after the ducts in their home are professionally cleaned. In addition, You can also follow these 6 tips to enjoy better indoor air quality:

1.) Keep Your Air Filter Clean

Depending on the type of air filter in your home, it should be cleaned or replaced monthly. The air filter is responsible for trapping dirt and other particulates that are circulating in your air through the HVAC system. The filter must be clean in order to effectively do its job.

2.) Choose the Right Filter

You may think that all air filters are the same, but this is not the case Choose a HEPA filter that has E1 or E2 MERV rating, which indicates that it removes the smallest particles from the air. Filters should be replaced or cleaned (if cleanable) every 30 days.

3.) Use a Humidifier

An effective home humidifying system can also improve indoor air quality. During winter months when you run the heater constantly, the home can become overly dry, and this can affect breathing, your skin and more. Choose a humidifier that is large enough for your entire home. Ideally, the humidifier air filter will also use mechano-electret media for further air purification.

4.) Install an Air Purifier

While an air filter may do its job to remove particulates from the air, an air purifier can produce enhanced results in this area. It can remove dust, pet dander, pollen and other particulates so that you and your loved ones can breathe easier. It can even remove some germs that could cause illness.

5.) Add More Live Plants

House plants are often viewed as being purely decorative, but they actually have health benefits. Depending on the plant species, they can remove carbon dioxide, carcinogens, ammonia, formaldehyde and more from the air. Consider using English Ivy, Peace Lily, Lady Palm and other species in your home. House plants can also help increase humidity levels during those dry winter & summer months.

6.) Clean Your Home Regularly

Dust and other debris can accumulate on your furnishings and floors. Regular cleaning through weekly dusting and vacuuming will help you to remove a substantial amount of particulates form your home. Take the additional step of scheduling professional truck mounted hot water extraction cleaning for carpets and upholstery once or twice per year. Bedding also needs to be cleaned at least once per week to remove particulates and dust mites. Because mold is common in the bathroom, remember to clean the bathroom weekly with an anti-mildew cleaner. However, the cleaner should be all-natural and free of harsh chemicals. Your kitchen should also be cleaned after each meal.

True North Clean is the company to contact for professional air duct cleaning, and we can also assist with hot water extraction cleaning of your carpeting, rugs, and upholstery. If your home has not received these services recently, now is the time to schedule the cleaning services needed to improve indoor air quality in your home!

4 Helpful Tips to Prevent Dirt from Entering Your Home

 

If you feel like your home is constantly dirty regardless of how frequently you clean it, you are not alone! You may have just dusted your living room furniture yesterday, and it may already be covered by a thin layer of dust. Floors, counters and other surfaces are equally difficult to keep clean. You may not realize it, but you can dramatically reduce your cleaning tasks and keep your home cleaner for longer periods of time when you take proactive steps to minimize the amount of dirt that enters your home. These steps can help you tackle the dirt problem in your home.

 

Tip #1: Choose Your Doormats & Walk Off Mats Wisely

Doormats can be placed both inside and outside of your exterior doors at all entrances, including the garage door. They give you a place to dust the dirt and debris off before you enter the home. An outdoor doormat ideally will be made out of rubber, and it may even have a wire rack feature for getting mud off of your shoes. Indoor doormats should have a no-slip vinyl or rubber under-layer. Ensure that the doormats are wide & long enough to accommodate a typical person’s stride. Remember to clean & vacuum the dirt off of your doormats frequently.

 

Tip #2: Change Your Air Filters & Clean Your Air Ducts

Any dust and debris that enters your home will circulate through the space via your HVAC system. The purpose of your air filter is to capture this debris so that less material spreads. Cleaning or replacing air filters at least once every 30-45 days ensures that they work properly. Invest in quality, high micron filtration air filters. Air ducts can also become contaminated with dust, debris, pollens, bacteria, and many other toxins with regular use. These toxins should be removed so that it does not filter into your rooms when the HVAC system runs. Have your HVAC duct sustem professionally cleaned every 2-3 years. Also be sure dust off your ceiling fan blades periodically.

 

Tip #3: Have a No-Shoe Rule

Adopting a no-shoe rule for your home is a smart idea. Shoes can be taken off and left near the door so that any debris on them will not spread throughout the home. When you think about all of the gross surfaces that your shoes have touched, such as public bathroom floors and dirty parking lots, it is a no-brainer to kick off your shoes before entering the house.

 

Tip #4: Grooming & Steps with Your Pets

Pets may be furry members of the family, but they often do not get groomed as frequently as they need to. Brush them outside every day or two to remove pet dander, extra hair and other debris. Remember to wipe their feet and dry them off before they come into the house. Bathing them on a regular basis is also helpful.

 

These steps can dramatically reduce the amount of dirt and other debris that circulates throughout your home. However, regular vacuuming and mopping are still necessary to keep your home as clean as possible. Because debris can get ground into your carpeting, professional carpeting cleaning once or twice per year is also beneficial. If it has been a while since your last deep carpet cleaning service or if you have problematic stains and odors, contact True North for assistance.

5 Sure Tips to Prevent your Carpet from Making You Sick

 

Carpeting is one of the most popular flooring options, and many homes have carpeting in at least a few rooms. This flooring material has a soft texture that is pleasant to walk across. Its texture and color add aesthetic appeal to your space, buffers noise to create a relaxing ambiance, and acts as a filter to trap dust, dirt, pollen’s, mold, and allergens from floating in your homes air.

However, the fibers in your carpet can become overflowing with these allergens, dirt, mold and more. These particles can cause everything from allergies and asthma to skin problems and other health issues. In addition, they can cause unpleasant smells that negatively impact your home’s ambiance.

By following these five tips, you can keep your carpeting as clean as possible, and reduce the likelihood that your floor may cause health issues.

1. Use Walk Off Rugs at All Entrances

A doormat or walk off rug is more than a welcoming feature that invites your house guests inside the home. It also collects dirt, allergens and more from shoes, preventing these particles from getting on or in your carpeting. Place walk off rugs at each exterior doorway. It may also be helpful to institute a no-shoes policy in your home.

2. Vacuum Carpeting Regularly

Vacuuming will not remove all particulates from your floor, but it can remove many of them. When you vacuum at least twice each week, you can prevent superficial particles from being ground into the carpeting. This can help you to keep the carpet cleaner over time. If possible, use a vacuum that has a HEPA filter. If you have pets indoors, vacuum more frequently.

3. Clean and Dry Spills Quickly

When any type of liquid spills onto your floor, the liquid can seep through the carpeting and into the padding underneath. This could cause bacterial and mold growth if not cleaned and dried quickly. Examples: aquarium leaks, plumbing leaks, pet accidents, tub or sink overflows, large drink spills, etc. Always soak up all moisture as needed with towels (white if possible to prevent any color bleeding into the carpet), and clean these areas thoroughly as soon as possible.

4. Schedule Professional Cleaning Service

Even with your best effort to keep your carpet clean, some dirt, bacteria and other particles will become embedded in your carpet fibers. Professional carpet cleaning uses more advanced methods to deep clean your carpet, such as hot water extraction. In addition, less water is used than what you may use with a do-it-yourself approach. This means carpeting dries faster, which can eliminate the concern about mold growth. Professional cleaning should be completed at least twice per year.

5. Replace Carpeting Periodically

Your regular cleaning effort as well as professional cleaning services will help you to keep your carpet as clean as possible. However, you will still need to replace carpeting periodically for maximum cleanliness. If you have been nursing an old, worn out carpeting for months or years, replacing it can improve how healthy your home environment is. If you are unsure if your carpet can be restored or needs to be replaced, call us and we’ll give you a free in home carpet assessment.

Dirty carpeting can make you and your loved ones sick in various ways. Keeping your flooring as clean as possible through your own efforts is important. However, you also need professional cleaning regularly. If it has been more than six months since your carpeting was professionally cleaned, contact True North Cleaning to schedule deep cleaning!

5 Important Things to Prepare Before Your Carpet Cleaner Arrives

 

At True North Clean, our conscientious and skilled carpet experts are committed to helping you improve the health, cleanliness, and overall appearance of your carpets through our proven services. However, you understandably want to enjoy the maximum benefit possible from our service with minimal disruption to your regular routine and daily home life experience. Follow these helpful tips to prepare for the arrival of our carpet cleaning team and enjoy a great carpet cleaning  experience!

1. Clear Your Carpeted Areas

Our carpet cleaning experts will clear away some of the items on your floor, but you should take steps to remove fragile or precious items on your own before we arrive. Large or heavy objects, such as beds and sofa, are not usually moved out of the way by our team unless you specifically request us to do so. However, there may be an additional charge for this. If you want to keep costs to a minimum while ensuring that your entire carpet is thoroughly cleaned, you may consider clearing all items from the carpet to prepare for our arrival.

2. Vacuum Carpet Areas to Be Cleaned

We include a very thorough commercial pre-vacuuming of your carpets. However, if you take a few minutes to vacuum the superficial dirt and debris from the floor, our carpet cleaning experts will be able to spend more time and energy deep cleaning the carpet rather than removing superficial dirt that can easily be removed with a household vacuum.

3. Plan for Your Pets

Our cleaning team at True North Clean will need complete access to all carpeted areas of your home that you want to be cleaned. Pets can easily get in the way or even slow the cleaning team down. Regardless of the type of pets that you have, it is best to remove them from your carpeted spaces and to keep them away from the cleaning team while we are working. One idea is to keep them in the backyard or garage until the cleaners have left and your carpeting has completely dried.

4. Prepare Your Family

During and after the deep cleaning treatment, your carpeting will be damp and will take some time to air dry. Ideally, you and your family should stay off of the carpeting during the treatment and afterwards until it is completely dry. It may be helpful to arrange for most of your family to be outside the home for a few hours while our cleaning team works as well as while the carpeting dries.

5. Make Room in Your Driveway

In order to deep clean your carpeting, our expert cleaners will need to use hot water extraction equipment that is mounted to our work vehicle. It is best if we are able to park as close to your front door as possible, and this area is usually in the driveway. This helps protect our vehicle from damage or theft, and may also promote safety because our hoses will not be running over a sidewalk or public walkway.

 

Deep cleaning your carpets at least once per year is a great way for you to improve indoor air quality, health, the appearance of your carpets, and to remove odors in your home. Our team at True North Clean is dedicated to impressing you with reliable, efficient service and fabulous results. If you are tired of looking at dingy carpeting or have noticed an unpleasant smell throughout your home, scheduling carpet cleaning service with our team is an excellent idea. Contact our office today to set up service at a time that is convenient for you.

If you are looking to restore the health, luster and beauty of your carpet and upholstery, or you are just concerned about your carpet’s health in general, now is the time to do something about it.

Different Types of Carpet & How Well They Clean

 

Many think that all carpet is more or less the same, but the reality is, there are several different materials that are commonly used to make carpeting found in homes today.

The material used in the carpeting can affect your overall purchase, installation cost, the material’s softness, and how well it wears (longevity). More than that, it can affect how easy the material is to care for, clean, and what cleaning processes you should use for the best results.

To help you better care for your carpet based on the type of carpeting you have, here is a closer look at the more common materials used in carpeting today:

Wool

Wool is one of the more expensive types of carpeting, so it is not commonly found in most homes. If you have high-end wool carpeting in your home, take extra steps to ensure that you hire the right professional carpet cleaner to clean it. Otherwise, you risk permanently damaging your fine carpet. Wool generally cleans very well, but is very sensitive to many cleaning solutions. Be sure to vacuum frequently, avoid pet accidents, heavy soiling, wine & colored drink spills, and have a quality stain protection professionally applied after cleaning. To spot wool, be sure to use a PH balanced spotter specifically designed for wool and be careful not to over “scrub” a spot that can cause fiber distortion. Be sure to only use a professional carpet cleaning company that is very experienced and skilled in wool carpet cleaning. The same goes for high end wool rugs.

Olefin

Olefin, which is also known as polypropylene, is used in many home and business applications because of it’s affordability. Olefin is often found as a “continuous loop” pile (sometimes called Berber in larger loops). Looped pile construction/weave reduces signs of wear and does not show dirt as easily as some other carpet types. All carpet fiber types can be found in “Berber” weaves. However, loop pile carpeting’s main drawback is that the tight loops can snag and pull. Olefin is a type of plastics and repels water based drinks & soils, but attracts oils based soils. Because olefin is a solid fiber, and dyed while in liquid form, it has no dye ports to absorb most stains. Therefore is naturally stain resistant. However, olefin attracts oils and can be stained by heavy grease or oil, can friction burn (melts at low temperature), and does not wear well. The pile tends to crush or “wear off” thus showing traffic patterns fairly quickly, especially in cut pile (non-looped) carpets.  Olefin should be cleaned using cleaning solutions and methods recommended for olefin or original spots & soil will re-occur. Because olefin repels moisture (rather than absorb), water & spills tend to run through to the backing quickly. The fiber needs to be thoroughly pre-conditioned and hot water extraction rinsed, but being very careful not to over wet the carpet.

Nylon

Nylon fiber was originally created to synthetically replicate wool, at a lower cost. Nylon does a great job of this and is affordable, thus being a very desirable carpeting material. Because of this, nylon is one one of the better carpet construction fibers in most cases and commonly found in homes and businesses. Nylon contains dye ports similar to wool, and is dyed after being made into a fiber. Because of this, drinks and liquids with dyes in them (red, orange, etc.) when spilled, can “dye” (stain) nylon. Most nylon carpets today are treated with a stain protection that helps seal the dye ports making the carpet very stain resistant. Nylon tends to wear very well, better than olefin and polyester in most cases. Nylon cleans up very well in most cases and truck mounted hot water extraction is the recommended method. PH balanced preconditioners and spotter need to be used to prevent damage to the stain protective coatings. After cleaning, it is best to re-apply a quality stain protection specifically formulated for nylon.

Polyester

Polyester is increasingly popular in homes today, but this material does not typically wear well. It can easily show wear from traffic patterns within a year or two. More than that, it is not easily cleaned, and you may not be able to professional clean it as easily as you can clean other types of carpeting. This means that you may need to replace polyester carpeting more frequently than you would need to replace some of the other materials. If you have polyester carpeting, use professional cleaning services to ensure the best results and to promote long-lasting use as much as possible.

The Conclusion

As you can see, the type of carpeting that you install in your home will affect how easily dirt shows as well as how easily the carpeting can be cleaned. The last thing you want is to damage your carpeting by using incorrect carpet cleaning products or methods. Because of this, it is wise to always use a professional, IICRC C…

Why Your Indoor Air Quality May Be Worse Than Outdoors

 

The issue of outdoor air quality is widely publicized, and many people are rightfully concerned about pollution from vehicles, manufacturing and more in the air they breathe. Air pollution is damaging the environment and affecting the health of many people around the world.

You may think that the air inside your home would be safer for you and your loved ones to breathe, but this is not actually the case. In fact, your indoor air may even more polluted than outdoor air. With a closer look at what may be happening in your home, you can learn what steps you need to take to improve your home environment.

What Are Common Indoor Air Pollutants?

Air filters in your HVAC system are designed to capture many indoor air pollutants, and this includes pet dander, bacteria, dirt, pollen, dust and more. However, air filters do not capture all of these particles. You may also have pollutants from air fresheners, cleaning products, furnishings, tobacco smoke, cooking activities, building materials & paints, pollutants tracked in on your shoes, dust mite waste material, mold & mildew, and many others that these air filters cannot remove. Some of these pollutants may fill the air, and others may may accumulate in your carpeting and other surfaces. When these surfaces are disturbed, they can fly into the air once again.

How Can They Build Up?

New particulates may be introduced into the indoor environment regularly, and they can become trapped in your home. Many newly constructed or recently renovated homes today are airtight for energy efficiency. This means that unhealthy gases and particles cannot leave the space, and they may actually accumulate in greater numbers over time. Opening windows and doors (screened) periodically for several hours at a time may help to clear away some of the indoor air pollution, but this may not be the only step you need to take to improve the quality of the air you breathe in your home. Pollen, bacteria, pet dander, dust mite waste material & toxins also accumulate in your carpet & upholstery over time.

What Are the Effects of Indoor Air Pollution?

Indoor air pollution can affect your health and well-being. Most notably, indoor pollution can result in breathing issues, allergy’s, skin and eye irritation, and more.

Tips to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Invest in a quality air filtration system. If you have a central air system, use HEPA filtration air filters. Change monthly.

Ensure that your HVAC system is allowing a healthy humidity level so mold & mildew is not encouraged to grow in your home.

Invest in a really good HEPA filtration vacuum. Vacuum carpets, rugs, upholstery, drapes, and hard floors.

Vacuum frequently. At least 2-3 times per week. 3-5 times per week (or more) if you have pets.

Don’t smoke indoors

Test your home for radon, especially if you have a basement

Consider going to fragrance free “green” cleaners

Have your carpets & upholstery professionally cleaned using truck mounted hot water rinse extraction. Many toxins build up in your carpet & fabrics and can only be removed with a powerful extraction process. Have this type of cleaning done at least once per year. 2-3 times per year if you have pets.

If you are looking to restore the health, luster and beauty of your carpet and upholstery, or you are just concerned about your carpet’s health in general, now is the time to do something about it.
