How To Dry a Wool Rug After Steam Carpet Cleaning

Posted on by admin

We love to try “do it yourself” projects, and although there is nothing wrong with trying to be self sufficient or stretching your dollar  we have to be prepared for the possibility that our first ventures may not come out the way we had imagined. Let us look at carpet cleaning, there are now quite a number of carpet cleaning steam devices that promise to “deep” clean carpets. The challenge is that these devices wet the carpets and aside from sucking some of the moisture out it does not really thoroughly dry the carpeting. Carpets made of Wool have the potential to become more over wet than other carpets because it readily absorbs more water. Because it retains more water it also dries more slowly so one needs to help it dry faster to avoid mold growing in it.

First the rug needs to be hung outside for it to dry quicker. Hang the rug from a rope that is securely tied just like in a clothesline. Take a stick and beat the rug so that the excess moisture is shaken and released from it. First take care of one side and then transfer to the other side, repeat this until no more water is dripping from the rug. Leave the rug hanging on the rope and exposed to the sun. Do not hang the rug outside if it is raining or snowing. If it starts to rain then hang it inside but be sure to rotate it after several hours. Once the rug is thoroughly dried beat the rug again to work out any stiffness that hanging caused.

Relationship between Price and Quality

Posted on by admin

Contrary to what most people think, when looking into hiring a professional carpet cleaning company to work for you, there is no apparent proof that the more you pay the better the service you’ll get.

According to a study done in Marin County, CA by Consumers’ Checkbook, you have to choose carefully to be able to get both a cleaner carpet and value for money. It all boils down to experience and expertise and not the price tag on their services. You just have to do your research.

“One of the things Consumers’ Checkbook finds very often is that there’s no relationship between price and quality. And that is certainly true among carpet cleaning firms,” Robert Krughoff from Consumers’ Checkbook said.

One example of a company who scores high on both quality of service and price is North Bay Carpet Cleaning. One of 64 Bay Area companies, North Bay Carpet Cleaning serves much of Marin County. Their experienced technicians, who have been in the business for many years, know exactly where to find the hard spots and how to treat them.

Good quality professional carpet cleaners charge by the type of carpet that you have and by the square foot. Be cautious of carpet cleaning companies who charge by the room and those who sell various add-on items like deodorizers and soil protectors that doesn’t seem to work anyways.

So when you are looking for the right carpet cleaning company to treat your carpets, don’t just go for the highest priced service provider you can find. Put in mind that there is no relationship between price and quality. Look for experience, good referrals, and expertise.

Bissell Enters Carpet Cleaner Rental Market

Bissell Enters Carpet Cleaner Rental Market

Posted on by admin

So it seems that Bissell is getting into the rental business. I just read that they plan on setting up areas that will rent their Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine and its accompanying products. Apparently of the 800 stores they plan on launching in several hundred of them will be Lowe’s. Bissell will be charging $24.99 a day for rentals plus the cost of chemicals and any other attachments that may be needed.

One of Bissell’s main competitors will be the Rug Doctor, whom Bissell believes they will have a leg up on. They say that their machine is faster and easier to use than other similar units. The Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine has rotating Dirtlifter brushes that rotate backwards and forwards and a DryAire function that heats the carpet to help speed up drying times. The units also have a removable tank for clean and waste water. The pricing and the kiosk set up will be similar to that of Rug Doctor. But it appears that the main difference could possibly be in the cost of buying one of the units. Bissell plans on selling their Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine for around $400 while the Rug Doctor unit starts out around $600.

Bissell believes that they can become the leader in the carpet cleaner rental market. They feel that even though the market may be a bit slow now, it still has the potential to hit several hundred million dollars in sales annually. This is apparently enough motivation for them to branch out with this addition to their business.
