Carpet Cleaning

Carpet cleaning by Stanley Window Care is one of the many services we specialize in. We clean your carpet with only organic materials that are safe for your little ones and furry friends.
Carpets are a staple in every home and why shouldn't they be? Carpeting adds vibrancy to a room and can even help create specific moods or atmospheres in the rooms they are a part of. Because carpets are so important many people go to great lengths to keep them clean; all to varying degrees of success. Most people, at the very least, vacuum their carpets on a regular basis and pick up after themselves and their children. Others will take things a step further and use retail brand carpet sprays and a brush to remove spots and stains. On occasion, people will rent a carpet shampooer from their local retail or home improvement store. While all of the aforementioned measures are great in terms of effort not all of them will keep carpets as clean as they should be nor will some of them restore a carpet to its original vibrancy. Moreover, being that there are many different types of carpeting, the do-it-yourselfer may inadvertently damage their carpets by misusing tools, utilizing the wrong ones, or by applying improper cleaning solutions.

If one aims to clean their carpets thoroughly there is of course the option of hiring a professional carpet cleaner. Going this route takes the burden and responsibility associated with this work off the shoulders of the homeowner and places it on the shoulders of those with the experience and tools to do the job efficiently, quickly, and thoroughly. For those who can not afford to hire a professional carpet cleaner and those who simply prefer to do the work themselves, there are a few things to watch out for and be mindful of.

Do Your Homework

When someone decides to give their carpets a thorough cleaning it behooves them to do their homework. By using the internet a person can easily find out how to clean their carpets properly and without damaging them. Such persons should find out what type of carpet they are going to be working with, what type of tools work best on that carpet, and which cleaning solutions are safe. There is also plenty of information on how to clean a carpet properly and it is usually presented in a step by step break down.

The Carpet Cleaning Process

The carpet cleaning process isn't necessarily complicated but if the job is done using proper steps the results will be fantastic.

  • Applying Suction – The carpet cleaning process should always begin with a thorough vacuuming. Standard retail bought vacuums work fine but a high end vacuum will coax stubborn debris out of its resting place before removing it.
  • Pre-Cleaning Spray – Before rigorous cleaning can begin in earnest, a stain loosening cleaning solution needs to be sprayed over carpeting in its entirety. This solution will not only break stains up so that they can be removed but will also dissolve the waxy buildup that grows on carpets over time. Once applied this solution need to sit for no more than 15 minutes before the real cleaning can begin.
  • A Good Scrubbing – Once the aforementioned solution has had time to absorb into a carpet and do it's job, a hot water shampooing unit should be used in order to remove any and all debris during this part of the process. Homeowners should be wary however as the units available for rent at retail stores aren't all that effective in scrubbing nor sucking up debris. Consider spending a few extra dollars and rent an industrial strength Rotovac designed for this very purpose.
  • Post Cleaning Solution – This step in the carpet cleaning process is near impossible to do without a Rotovac or reasonable facsimile. During this process these high powered units lay down a protective solution that keeps carpets from incurring damage and becoming overly filthy. This solutions protects carpets for about six months and is also stain and spill prohibitive.

  • Air Dry – The final step in the carpet cleaning process is of course its drying out. During the hours following a thorough carpet cleaning it's imperative that no foot see fresh carpet. Wet carpet is a conduit for debris so keep everyone and everything clear. The amount of time it takes for a carpet to dry out will depend largely on what time of year its cleaned and whether or not there are fans running at the time. Professionals often use large fans to facilitate quick drying. Carpets without the assistance of fans normally dry out anywhere from within a few hours to an entire day. Homeowners can run their own fans and open windows to help the process along. If someone must walk over freshly cleaned carpet remember to wear booties over shoes and bare feet.

The Professional Alternative

Cleaning carpet thoroughly is an arduous task at it's easiest and is rather time consuming as well. It is for these reasons that many people opt to hire professional carpet cleaners as an alternative to doing the job themselves. Hiring a pro to tackle this job allows persons to do something much more fun with their free time and ensures that they get the end results they want. These services are surprisingly affordable and especially so when you juxtapose them with the time and money it takes to do the work yourself. Additionally most professionals offer free quotes and even on site estimates without obligation.

Awnings add character, luster, and value to any home that they are a part of. Their great beauty and fantastic designs belie a problem that all awnings have however. This being the fact that all awnings must be kept clean if they are to retain the high level of beauty and value they are associated with. Awnings are often thought of as high maintenance because they often reside under or near trees and bushes. Foliage attracts pests and can also drop a great deal of debris onto awnings that then dirty them up and even damage them after just short periods of time. The good news here is that awnings aren't overly difficult to clean. By cleaning them yourself or by hiring a professional on a regular basis you'll positively affect the longevity of your awnings and keep them looking great for longer periods of time. More to the point, cleaning them with regularity staves off the need for thorough deep cleanings and repairs.

As Simple As It Gets

Professional awning cleaners recommend that owners rinse their awnings off with water once a month. Home and business owners that do this will remove the majority of the dirt, debris, and pests that gather on their awnings. Running water prohibits dirt from embedding itself in the fabric of an awning which means fewer or no stains at all to worry about. It will also keep pollen and plant matter from building up. Best of all...rinsing them off 12 times a year negates the need for fabric replacement and any sort of repair.

A Couple Of Additional Measures

Those whom live in climates where extreme weather is the norm will want to go the extra mile for their awnings when engaging in monthly cleanings. One of the most important aspects of an awning is it's fabric. This fabric should be removed and washed in household washing machine and then air dried for maximum effect. Washing machines are great at removing stains yet gentle enough to leave awning fabric intact. Conversely, awning fabrics should never be dry cleaned nor put into industrial washing machines lest they be damaged.

Home and business owners can also use a ladder and a light scrubbing brush to remove both loose and caked in debris from their awnings and without too much trouble either. A mild dish washing soap, without detergent, will also be helpful in removing light stains as well as some obstinate debris. By applying this soap mixed with water to awning fabric and allowing to sit 10 minutes before scrubbing, individuals will save themselves a great deal of time and hassle.

Calling In The Professionals

Though the monthly rinsing of awnings keeps problems to a minimum and keeps them looking sharp year round, there will eventually come a time where awnings need more than running water to keep them healthy. While homeowners certainly hire professional awning cleaners so that they don't have to do any of the recommend rinsing themselves, awnings should be seen by and receive a deep cleaning from a professional on a biannual basis. This twice a year visit from a local pro will address all the small issues that build up over the course of the year. Left neglected these small issue become noticeable over time and are notoriously tough to fix. When professional awning services are used in conjunction with routine do-it-yourself maintenance, awnings can be kept in such a healthy state that they last for decades without issue.

Hiring A Professional Commercial Window Cleaner

Orange County Commercial Window Cleaning Experts at Stanley Window Care want to help keep your building looking clean. We have all the proper equipment to reach high windows and have more than 15 years experience in window cleaning. We service the entire Orange County CA and will always have a manager on site.
Today's business world is not only fast and always evolving but it's extremely competitive as well. If there was ever a time when 'you only get one chance to make a first impression” it's now. With so many companies vying for the attention of your potential customers, you can ill afford to make a tepid or even poor first impression. While there is a lot that goes into impressing would be clients one of the most important is a clean and professional office environment. One of the most overlooked aspects of a clean working space is a building's windows. This oversight is usually a byproduct of simply not wanting to do the work and other times not having the time and/or tools to do the job. For those whom own or work in multiple storied buildings there's also the issue of safety. Climbing ladders while working with water and cleaning solutions can be a dangerous job and one that results in injury.

So what then is a business owner or manager supposed to do to ensure that their windows remain in a pristine state? It is quite impractical for the owners of a business to do the work themselves and insurance reasons alone will prevent the work from being done by employees who were hired to do another job. This is where the practicality of hiring a professional Orange County window cleaner comes into clear view. Hiring such professionals takes the burden off the shoulders of people whom aren't trained in the work and places it on persons who bring experience and industrial grade tools to the job.

Why Hire A Professional Window Cleaner?

A business owner and those who own commercial structures hire professional window cleaners for a variety of reasons.

  • Impeccable Results – Professional window cleaners are put through rigorous training long before they are sent out to a job site. This training ensures a high quality of work and teaches window cleaners how to care for a building as if it where their own. All of this leads to the type of results that only professionals can produce. These persons will leave windows looking like new and can even restore their original luster and shine. Furthermore, windows this clean are conducive to higher employee moral and a higher level of productivity.
  • The Right Tools For The Right Job – Whereas the do-it-yourselfer might use a retail cleaning solution, a simple cloth, and a cheap squeegee, a professional window cleaner brings with them state of the art cleaning solutions, tools, and the knowledge needed to use them efficiently. The pros always provide their own miscellaneous tools such as ladders, disposal bags, etc.
  • Safety – It might not be immediately obvious but window cleaning can be a dangerous job. Sure, windows at ground level aren't all that difficult to clean nor are those just above that but once extension poles, hoses, ladders and the like all come into the picture, the risk of falls, slips, bruises, cuts, and even broken bones rises exponentially. When you hire a professional to clean your windows your risk of injury falls to zero and professionals rarely, if ever, get hurt.
  • Saving Time – The act of cleaning windows is a time consuming one. Laypersons whom take this task upon themselves will spend days trying to clean their workspace. Professional window cleaners however can complete both the exterior and interior of windows in a matter of hours...not days. Business owners and managers have...well businesses to run. They should not be responsible for the cleanliness and maintenance of the building they occupy.
  • Insurance And Lawsuits – Businesses do not carry the type of insurance that covers window work for employees that were hired to do something else. Any business or building owner who might consider asking employees to wash their buildings windows must not only be prepared for a backlash but potential lawsuits as well. Professional window cleaners are licensed, bonded, and carry workman's compensation insurance so that their clients nor your employees are never responsible for damages and/or injuries.
  • Keep Tenants Happy – Those whom lease spaces in commercial buildings for work shouldn't have to pay for maintenance themselves. This is something landlords and management companies have paid for. Its come to be expected in the modern world and it is a great way to instill confidence in tenants...and keep them in your building for years to come.

So Many To Choose From

With so many professional window cleaning firms and individuals to choose from, finding the right one for your commercial building can be quite the daunting task. In decades past one had only the Yellow Pages and word of mouth to rely on when considering a firm. These days however the internet is with you everywhere you go. Never hire a professional without first using the internet to read reviews, speak with other customers (past and present), and without interviewing the firm you're interested in. Following the aforementioned suggestions will help you weed out the less reputable companies and find one that fits both your needs and budget.
