TechCleanChair-1Here at John’s Chem-Dry of Whatcom County, we know that you have worked hard on your home. You’ve invested in furniture, decorative rugs, all in order to create a peaceful and welcoming environment for your family and friends to enjoy. No one wants to replace the furniture and ambiance they have worked so hard to create. For this reason, we have compiled a few tips to help you maintain your household furniture and avoid stains and spots before they happen!

#1: MAINTAIN A ROUTINE VACUUMING SCHEDULE

Vacuuming is a great way to keep a clean home in between professional cleanings. If built-up dirt is allowed to remain on the carpet, it easily becomes embedded in the fabric and will be much more difficult to remove.

By maintaining a routine vacuuming schedule you will be able to get rid of the hair, dirt, and allergens that can affect your family’s physical health. If possible, we recommend daily vacuuming, but it may vary depending on the traffic to your home. Overall, by following this tip you will be able to preserve your carpet and furniture and save money in the long run.

#2: IMPLEMENT A “NO SHOES” RULE

Dirty shoes are one of the easiest ways for dirt and grime to enter your home. If you wear shoes inside your home, stains are inevitable. By simply removing your shoes before entering your home you can dramatically reduce the amount of stains you will encounter.

#3: PROTECT AGAINST STAINS WITH CARPET PROTECTANT

Carpet protectant is the revolutionary solution that temporarily shields your carpet fibers from stains, spots, and wear and tear. It works to reduce the effects of stains and can dramatically increase the life of your carpet and furniture. Most carpets are sold with a mild protectant on it, but it doesn’t last long. We recommend getting protectant reapplied at least every six months.

Whether you need to get rid of some nasty stains or need a re-application of carpet protectant, the professionals at John’s Chem-Dry of Whatcom County are only a phone call away. If you are ready to prolong the life of your furniture and carpet, give us a call. We will treat your carpets like they are our own!
