Removing pet’s residues is not an easy task and should not definitely be done by spraying antibacterial solution on the carpet and the scrubbing it, this will only get your carpet more stained and will make the problem worse. Furthermore one should always avoid over moisturizing the carpet, as this can only make problem worse by spreading poo in to your underlay and even deeper if way to much water will be used.

Solution: using antibacterial solution, like dettol or equivalent chemical mix it with mater (make sure that your carpet will not discolor under the chemical, You should always test the solution on some carpet sample that will not be visible and you don’t mind having it bit lighter or otherwise not evenly colored.

Once you have the solution done and your carpet testing is showing that carpet will withstand solution you can start working on the stain with solution and sponge that will extract as much poo as you can. Once no more is coming off, simply sprinkle the stain with your solution and then sprinkle it with backing soda (backing soda will absorb much of the chemicals and poo). One this had few hours to dry out, simply vacuum the surface and repeat the process until you are satisfied with results, it will take some time to get tot pristine condition.

Wine cleaning after party

Share Button

Cleaning whine or any other drinks may not be easy task after party, however it should be done immediately after the accident happens as this is essential for the success if you do not want to hire expensive carpet cleaner that may charge you anything from £30 to £40 for single cleaning of stain (that is what I usually charge).  I enjoy working with wine sometimes, as this is easy job to conduct if it is still fresh.

drinks and party

Otherwise it takes for ever to get it out and if carpet is very creamy and  already dry it may prove to be almost impossible to get it removed from carpet.

That is why you should never let it dry before getting it out, best way to get red wine out is to use paper towels to suck it out of the carpet, never ever rub it in to the carpet with any time of sponge or something like that. It will not produce any good results fro you. Using white wine to dissolve your red wine spillage may be beneficial and produce some good results.

Try to avid anybody walking on the area is you are not intending to have it done on the day of accident, walking can only smear the wine all over the carpet and get it dipper in to the underlay and wood work of the carpet.

Booking your domestic cleaner

Share Button

This is something of a problematic manner if you are looking to book someone with very short notice and one can find out that many cleaning companies will charge them extra for this sort of service that is not in regular times or without much notice.

I always recommend my customers to give me enough time, so that I can have my timetable available for their disposal and by this get in best time available for them and suitable for me as well. However sometimes it is not possible, especially after party or some other event that could be requiring immediate cleaning after people making some mess or otherwise you just need your property inspected by your landlord or renting agency that will be coming to your place to see how clean your place is now.

Like you can see at this photo, there was some good party here, and my customer was requiring some immediate cleaning after Halloween if I remember it right. This was rather difficult for me as it was on Saturday. I don’t work on weekends with my carpet cleaning business, because I work in Swansea and this is not finishing until 7 pm at evening. However It was rather big job, with three sets of stairs, which added to some good payoff for the job that at the end I was more then happy to do.

Cleaning Kitchen Tiles

The most important part of cleaning your kitchen floor tiles is making sure spillages and dirt do not have the time to get comfortable. Unfortunately, spillages and dirt are common in kitchens, but you can eliminate any bad stuff by cleaning spills and dirt as soon as possible.  This is a simple enough task with a cloth or mop, hot water, and a special cleaning detergent. It is recommended that you do a spot test with any detergent before using it.  Regular maintenance is especially important. The quickest and most effective cleaning steps you can take are to sweep and vacuum your tiles on a weekly basis.  By sweeping and vacuuming the tiles you will remove any dirt before it embeds itself in the tile or grout.

Cleaning Kitchen Sinks

Regardless of the material your kitchen sink was made of, you must clean it with an all purpose spray on a daily basis. You can make your own spray by combining warm water and mild dishwashing soap. Use a clean cloth to wipe inside the sink and then wipe the sink using a dry cloth, this will prevent soap scum. You should clean your on a daily basis, deep cleaning should be done every one to two weeks. If you would like to give your sink a more thorough clean, try using a non abrasive cleaning product or an-purpose cleaning spray.

Cleaning Kitchen Countertops

Countertops see a lot of food and grime and as this is an area where your food is prepared, it is critically important that it is kept clean. It’s definitely worth cleaning your countertops immediately after they are used, this will catch dirt before it gets a chance to build up. The most effective way to clean a kitchen countertop is to use a mixture of warm water and a mild liquid detergent. In order to prevent bacteria from embedding itself in this area, you must wipe the countertops down with a dry cloth immediately after preparing food.

Cleaning Ovens

When it comes to keeping your oven clean, prevention is the best policy. Prior to cooking, line your oven with aluminum foil. Wipe up any spills immediately after they occur, if you allow the spills to dry they will become harder to clean. To eliminate minor dirt and grime, use a damp cloth and any standard cleaner that has been designed for kitchen appliances. While it may not be practical to clean your oven every day, it’s important that you don’t let months pass without it seeing a cloth. The amount you will need to clean your oven depends on how often you use your oven and the types of food that you cook.  If you are fine with a bit of elbow grease, sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda on the dirty surfaces and add vinegar. Leave it for 45 minutes and then scrub away!

Cleaning the dishwasher

Unfortunately a lot of food and grime comes off your dishes when they get placed in the dishwasher. It can be tricky to get rid of the grime once it has started to build up. The first step is to remove racks and anything else that may block your access to the stains. Using vinegar, water and a sponge, scrub away the stains inside the dishwasher. Be sure to clean the drain thoroughly as debris often gets caught here. You may need to use a sharp tool such as a toothpick to remove the food from the small holes. Using the solution mentioned in step 2, clean the racks and accessories thoroughly. Clean the rubber seal of your dishwasher using a mixture of hot water and half a cup of bleach. It’s important that you do this as the seal can get moldy. When you have followed these steps, run your dishwasher on the highest cycle possible with baking soda, lemon juice, or a specially designed dishwasher cleanser.
