Carpet Cleaning Service Long Beach

One of the most tedious things about spring cleaning your house is having to clean your carpets. They need to be deep cleaned at least once a year or more to maintain proper hygiene. If you need professional carpet cleaning service in Long Beach, A1 Carpet Care would be happy to assist you.

Professional vs. self-cleaning carpets

Though carpets are stylish additions to your floor, they are also one of the hardest to clean. The carpet fibers tend to harbor everything from dust, grime, pet hair to food, and drink stains. To manage this build-up, you should vacuum your carpets a minimum of once a week.

When you vacuum, you should use a powder or liquid carpet cleaning solution before to absorb any dirt or grime, so that it’s easier to vacuum. You have to sprinkle the cleaning powder evenly on your carpet, let it sit for around 10 minutes and vacuum up the clumped dirt particles.

Professional cleaning services use specialized cleaning equipment that blasts out a mixture of hot water and detergent onto the carpet fibers, to help dislodge any hardened dirt or grime. These are then picked up by a high-powered vacuum. If you’re searching for professional carpet cleaning service in Long Beach, give us a call!

How is hot water extraction different from steam cleaning?

Most professional carpet cleaning services use both hot water extraction (blasting detergent and hot water at high pressure) and steam cleaning to deep clean carpets. The main difference is that in steam cleaning, the water has to reach a higher temperature, the boiling point to produce steam. Hot water extraction uses hot water at a lower temperature.

Both these methods are great for deep cleaning carpets and removing stubborn stains. Steam cleaning is particularly useful because the extremely high temperature can kill disease-causing microbes that may be hiding in the carpet. Steam cleaning is better for synthetic fibers, while hot water extraction is better for natural fibers (steam cleaning will damage them).

Top tips for cleaning carpets

People make several mistakes when cleaning carpets, that only make their lives harder. For example, you should never wipe liquid or food stains, because this will rub it even more into the carpet. Instead, you should try blotting the stains.

Plenty of ingenious carpet cleaning hacks are out there that use simple household products. For example, did you know that you could use shaving cream to clean up stains? Apply it to the stain, let it sit for half an hour and then blot away with a dry cloth.

You can clean up chewing gum stuck to the carpet, by placing some ice cubes on it to harden it, which makes it easier to remove. Club soda and vinegar mixtures are also great for removing stains
