Taking care of cleaning chores around the house is something homeowners have engaged in since houses were invented. Not many people like it but it needs to be done.

However, some specialized tasks, such as removing a spot from a carpet, getting rid of an irritating pet odor from the family dog or trying to find the best cleaning solution for the toughest jobs can actually end up causing more harm than good.

Spot removal
When we find a spot on the carpet, there are two things we tend to do. The first is to put way too much cleaning solution on the spot, saturating it and even getting the padding wet. This just spreads the spot and causes trouble in the future. The second is we tend to scrub way too long and way too hard. This can fray the fibers and you can’t fix that. So when you get a spot, put some solution on a white towel (always use a white towel to avoid color transfer from the towel to the carpet) and blot. Never scrub or rub.

Odor removal
The biggest question when Fido or Fluffy does their thing on the carpet is “How do I get it out?” That’s not always easy unless you get to it right away. Urine will penetrate into the carpet, the padding and even the subfloor, and when it dries, over time it becomes sticky and smelly. Some just temporarily mask the odor with powdered carpet deodorizers. Theses powders or crystals only gums up the carpet and create a residue very difficult to remove. Just like with spot removal, blotting the area quickly is usually the best remedy for the do-it-yourself types.

Using products
When one product works well and you find another one works well, too, the tendency is to mix them. Remember, never mix ammonia and bleach. Both are effective products on their own, but mixed together, they become deadly. Other products on your shelf could, if mixed together, create toxic fumes that can cause harm to your family. Always follow directions.

How can you avoid all these problems and challenges? It’s simple: Call your cleaning professional today. They’ll be right over to save the day.
