How To Get Blood Stains Out Of Your Carpet In 5 Minutes or Less

October 3rd, 2010

Life Happens! And so do blood stains on the carpet. But you don’t have to live with those embarrassing stains on your carpet. You too can become an expert stain remover in less than 5 minutes with a little help and the right tools. All you need is a towel, some oxidizing red stain remover and some rust stain remover.

Start by applying some of your oxidizing red stain remover over the blood stain. Use a spoon to work the solution in between the fibers and watch it fizz. The fizz is the solution dissolving the blood. Wait a few minutes and the stain will completely disappear. If the blood spot still has a shadow or some brownish color that won’t disappear, use a little rust stain remover to finish the job. Blood has iron in it and the iron can turn to rust on the carpet. Work a little rust stain remover into the fibers with the spoon and watch the stain vanish.

One last tip: I tell my Carpet Cleaning Las Cruces clients that my best advice is to blot the stain. Never rub the spot or you can distort the carpet. Here is a great article I found that offers some more tips on How to Remove Blood Stains From Carpet.

Hope this info is helpful…Emilio

Carpet Cleaners in Las Cruces NM Conquer Stubborn Red Stains

September 13th, 2010

Ever study a red carpet stain carefully? If you look closely you’ll notice that the red color on the affected area is either bright or shiny and looks like the red liquid in a Gatorade bottle or subsequently it looks dull and somewhat dark like wine or old dried up blood. Study these stains a little more and you’ll learn they are removed differently too. For example, most over the counter red stain removal products like Oxyclean for Carpet contain oxidizers that work well on natural or vegetable dyes including red wine stains. Unfortunately, most spills are actually caused by foods that contain artificial or synthetic dyes and these products have very little or no success on removing synthetic stains. This can be very frustrating when embarrassing spots are located in the middle of a room where homeowners can’t simply hide them with a plant or piece of furniture.

Here’s a great article written by Jeff Cross, senior editor for Cleanfax Magazine titled: Remove the Red. Mr. Cross discusses the difference between red stains caused by synthetic dyes versus organic dyes and how to remove each.

I get calls every day in my Las Cruces carpet cleaning business from people that have red stains on their carpet. Some say they were caused by wine spills while others say their red spots were accidental Kool Aid or fruit juice spills. Both are red in color but are removed using completely opposite solutions and techniques. Be sure to consult with a reputable and experienced professional carpet cleaner before attempting to remove a red stain. Using the wrong solutions and techniques can set unwanted color permanently.

Discover why most carpet cleaners in Las Cruces, NM DO NOT guarantee Pet Odor Removal

September 9th, 2010

The answer is simple! They do not understand that pet urine is a complex problem. First… it is invisible and if not completely located, then the smell will persist. Second… it cannot be washed away with soap and water. Adding any moisture (water) to “dog urine or cat urine odors “only makes the smell worse. Third… using enzymes to kill malodors is old technology. Working with enzymes is very messy and can take as long as 72-hours to work.

Here’s a great article titled: Cat Urine Smell. Know Your Enemy and Win the Battle that puts cat urine odors into perspective. The author thoroughly explains what cat urine contains any why it smells.

Luckly, there are better solutions for these embarassing odors. They are quick and 100% reliable when done right. More importantly they allow our Las Cruces Carpet Cleaning service to give clients a 100% guarantee on all our work performed. Our policy is simple, we pride ourselves on offering Las Cruces residents the only “ODOR GONE; OR IT’S FREE! money back guarantee. Every carpet cleaning service in Las Cruces should offer a similar guarantee if they plan to offer consumers this service.

September 2nd, 2010

Indoor pets are a way of life. In fact, my son has a 5 pound Chihuahua he simply adores. But he can’t be there 24-hours a day to ensure “Tiny” doesn’t have an accident. So we too have to deal with the occasional dog urine or cat urine accident.

Embarassing Odors from pet urine in wool rugs can be fixed if the piece is quickly and properly treated. If the urine is not properly treated (or worse, treated with solutions designed to clean wall-to-wall carpet) there can be permanent staining, color loss, fiber damage, and more!

Carpet Cleaners in Las Cruces Reveal Trade Secret

September 1st, 2010

Every wonder what carpet cleaners do to get better results? The answer is simple: they adopt the use of rotary jet extraction tools like the one in this carpet cleaning video. Rotary tools help agitate the carpet like no other tool on the market. It helps break up heavy soil build up and separates yarns so they get cleaned from all four sides. As a bonus, this tool never tires so carpet cleaners in Las Cruces using this tool never become exhausted before the end of the work day. This is important to clients who desire a good quality job.

Consumers in Las Cruces can be confident knowing that one carpet cleaning company provides rotary jet extraction on every job. The results they deliver are the same on every job… EXCELLENT! But BEWARE… 98% of all carpet cleaners in Las Cruces do not use rotary jet extractors. Instead they’ve decided it’s better to leave behind twice a much moisture (soaking wet carpets), twice as much cleaning residues (that lead to rapid resoiling) and remove only half the soil found in dirty carpets.

I Heard: Viscose Rugs and I RAN the other way!

August 30th, 2010

I receive calls everyday from new and repeat clients who call to discuss their rug cleaning needs. They ask about cleaning oriental, persian and afghan area rugs in Las Cruces. Rug cleaning requires special skills, techniques and vast cleaning knowledge from professionals specializing in this craft to be performed safely. Hand woven rugs can vary in cost from very expensive (some as much as a nice mid-size car) to more reasonable priced pieces. There are some local retailers in Las Cruces that offer reasonably priced rugs that look wonderful and if taken care of properly will last a long time.

Consumers should always be weary of discount rug dealers. These rugs are cheaper than the expensive rugs, but be aware that they can have issues with cleaning and service. Before purchasing a rug you should make sure it will pass the test of time. Here is an article, written by Lisa Wagner, on one of the types of Rugs To Run From: Viscose Rugs!

I hope this information provides confidence in choosing a great hand woven oriental, persian or afghan area rug.

Confidential Interview Las Cruces Carpet Cleaners DREAD You’ll Hear

August 27th, 2010

These Las Cruces residents thought they were getting a great deal when they hired a local carpet cleaner recommended by his sister. Little did he know that the man they hired didn’t know how to fix heavily soiled traffic lanes and dark spot on their carpet. And if that isn’t enough, the man convinced them that it was their fault the soil had permanently stained their carpet.

This sort of thing happens all the time. When a technician reaches the end of his or her skill, it becomes easier to blame the carpet rather than to admit they do not know what to do.

Fortunately, it’s easy to spot these shady characters that continiously give the carpet cleaning industry a black eye. Simply ask for a ‘Guarantee’ and see what happens when you mention the “G” word. Take it a step further and ask for a ‘written guarantee’ and see what happens. A technician that does not know what they are doing cannot guarantee their work! It’s that simple.

Las Cruces residents and the couple in this video can rest at ease knowing there is one IICRC Certified Master Textile Cleaner serving our city. It takes years of education/training and experience before anyone is awarded this prestigious title. In order to be awarded this status, they must be certified in carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, color repair, odor repair, carpet repair, water damange restoration, and advanced structural drying (ASD) and have a minimum of 6 years experience in the carpet cleaning industry.

Las Cruces Carpet Cleaning – FiberCare picked up the ball where the other company dropped it and was able to clean the heavily soiled spots and traffic lane believed to be permanent. They’ve set the new standard for carpet cleaners in Las Cruces and more importantly raised the level of quality consumers expect.
