Top 10 Carpet Cleaning Secrets from the Pros

To breathe easier throughout the New Year, while maintaining your carpet investment, here are Fresh Start's Top 10 Carpet Cleaning Secrets from the Pros. Call (609) 479-4622 Today!

Without regular cleaning, your carpet’s can house dust, dirt, allergens, bacteria, grime, and everything else that catches a ride into your home on the bottom of your shoes. To breathe easier throughout the New Year, while maintaining your carpet investment, here are the Top 10 Carpet Cleaning Secrets from the Pros.

  1. Always blot, never rub! Always dab stains with a cleaning solution and a clean cloth, paper towel, or sponge; rubbing stains damages carpet fibers. Blotting uses light pressure to soak up stains and be sure to blot from the outside of the stain inward to avoid spreading it.

  1. Club soda works from beer to wine stains. Apply club soda to a clean cloth and blot the spot until gone. If that doesn’t work, mix 1-part white vinegar and 1-part water in a spray bottle, spray it on the stain, and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Then press a clean sponge onto the area to soak up the solution and stain; repeat as needed. When the stain’s gone, rinse with warm water, and use your hand to brush the carpet strands into their natural direction. Finally, lay white paper towels over the area, and weigh them down with something heavy, like a phone book to absorb the dampness for about a day until the carpet dries.

  1. Shaving cream removes nearly any stain. Apply shaving cream to the stain, let it sit for 30 minutes, blot with a dry white cloth, then spray the area with 1-part vinegar mixed with 1-part water, and wipe the solution and stain away with a cloth.

  1. Ice cubes and gum. Grab ice cubes to freeze the gum for about 30 seconds. When frozen solid, use a spoon to lift it, then cut the carpet strands as close to the gum as possible; cutting a small amount shouldn’t be noticeable.

  1. Dishwashing detergent and grease. Add a drop or 2 of grease-fighting dish detergent to a cup of water in a spray bottle, spray the stain, and blot; repeat as needed.

  1. Heating candle wax away. Place a white cloth over your iron, put the iron on the wax to warm it, then scrape off the wax with a butter knife.  After that, lay a paper towel on the area, and iron it, so the remaining wax can bind to the paper; repeat as needed.  Please note: only iron for 30-second increments to avoid burning the carpet, and only use white cloths or paper towels to avoid color transfer.      

  1. Hydrogen peroxide for blood stains. First, loosen dried blood with water mixed with a mild detergent, and scrape off as much as you can. Apply hydrogen peroxide directly to the stain – which will immediately foam – dab the hydrogen peroxide with towels to remove the stain and dry the carpet.

  1. Organic pet odor and stain removal. Saturate the pet stain with white vinegar, without leaving it soggy. Generously sprinkle baking soda over the soaked stain, wait for 1 to 2 days for the vinegar to dry, scoop up the remaining baking soda, and vacuum to leave your carpet fresh and clean without scrubbing.

  1. Crushed candy. Scrape with a butter knife, then use a sponge to apply water mixed with a mild soap to remove all the sugar, then blot dry with a cloth or towel.

  1. Invest in 2 steam cleanings a year. Professionally cleaning your carpet keeps it looking fresh and new. Steam cleaning uses a solution under pressure injected deep into the carpet to the backing, that’s then extracted, along with all dirt and debris. The water and steam penetrate carpet fibers, loosening embedded soil, and removing oil and grease deposits.

Keep Carpets Clean Throughout The Holidays

The holiday season is a time of family, friends, and festivities; which also means a lot of traffic on your carpets. Taking a proactive approach now will make your holiday carpet cleaning easier. Fresh Start Carpet Cleaning is a phone call away to refresh your carpets.

The holiday season is a time of family, friends, and festivities; which also means a lot of traffic on your carpets. Taking a proactive approach now will make your holiday carpet cleaning easier. Always vacuum once a week with a good vacuum cleaner to prevent dirt and crumbs from building up, and to spot stains faster. The most essential and basic rule for keeping your carpets clean is cleaning spills as soon as they happen.

 

From ground-in candy canes to melted fudge, most stains can be cleaned with the following technique. Before you begin, remember not to oversaturate stains, as this just makes a small spot bigger; and never rub stains, as this can damage your carpet’s texture. To get started, remove as much stain material as possible. If it’s dry, vacuum it first. If it’s semi-solid, scrape or scoop it up with a spoon or dull knife. If it’s liquid, blot it up. Next, blot the stain with cool water, and blot dry. Then make a foam using 1/4 teaspoon liquid dishwashing soap in a cup of warm water and apply it to the stain with a sponge or soft brush in a wiping motion toward the center of the spot; starting in the center will spread the stain. When the stain clears, blot the area with cool water, and blot dry. For cranberry sauce, gravy, or eggnog stains – mix vinegar, water, and detergent, and blot until gone. 

 

Pet stain removal and pet odor removal from carpets can be a challenging task, but here’s a simple process. Start by saturating the pet stain with white vinegar without leaving it soggy. Next, generously sprinkle baking soda over the soaked stain. Wait for 1 to 2 days for the vinegar to completely dry. Then scoop up the remaining baking soda, and vacuum. This will leave your carpet fresh and clean, without scrubbing.

   

Remember: having your carpets professionally cleaned twice a year helps them last longer. Professional cleaning with the application of a protective carpet guard ensures that spilled wine at your New Year’s Eve party will come up easily, and water tracked in from snow won’t be absorbed.

May Your Days (and Your Carpets) Be Merry and Bright

Why you should get your carpets professionally cleaned for the holidays

Hey New Jersey! No matter how excited you are for the holidays, getting your house ready for all those parties and out of town guests can feel overwhelming. But as tempting as it might seem in all the chaos of cookie baking, gift buying, and event planning, deep cleaning your carpet is not something you want to ignore this season.

Why is professional carpet cleaning essential? Carpet makes your house and your feet feel cozy, but it also provides a cozy home for a laundry list of bacteria, allergens, dust particles, grime buildup, and more! Not the holiday guests you invited over? We didn’t think so! In a season where colds and viruses are already prevalent in a chilly climate like New Jersey, it doesn’t help anyone stay well to keep germs lodged in the spaces you inhabit every day! But what a lot of homeowners don’t realize is that simply vacuuming your carpet doesn’t fully remove these unwanted and unhealthy particles and germs.

So how can you keep the upcoming days merry and bright for your family and your guests? We have a simple, convenient, and very affordable solution! From November 11 – 18, we’re offering a special discount on our carpet cleaning services in honor of Veteran’s Day. Our prices are already the best around, and now you can enjoy 15% off on keeping your home fresh and your friends and family healthy!

If the naughty list of germs and particle buildup wasn’t bad enough, there are a lot more reasons to schedule professional carpet cleaning before the holidays hit.

 

  • Dirt, pet odors, and who knows what else get trapped in carpets, and no amount of pumpkin spice scented candles can mask a musty carpet vibe. Thankfully, our expert cleaning methods get to the bottom of these odors and stains!
  • As the holidays get closer, your house becomes more and more likely to be covered in luggage, packaging, gifts, wrapping paper, boxes to be mailed, feasting ingredients, and those piles of laundry you haven’t gotten around to. This festive clutter makes it hard to access your floors for the deep cleaning they require.
  • Just look at your calendar! Better to get one more important thing out of the way now so that you can breathe that much easier (literally, thanks to our professional dust and allergen zapping cleaning powers!)
  • Get on the nice list with your friends and relatives. No matter how much they love you, no one wants to celebrate or sleep in a house filled with pet odors, pet stains, germs, and pesky allergens!

 

So, make your to-do list and check it twice, but make sure that professional carpet cleaning before the holidays is somewhere at the top! And give yourself an early Christmas present by taking advantage of our limited time 15% off discount on cleaning services, good until November 18th! Call to schedule your recipe for a happy holiday today! 609-505-1624

Want deep Upholstery and Carpet Cleaning for the Holidays? There’s a discount for that!

From floors and entryways to couches and chairs, carpet and upholstery are household staples that we interact with every day. Often, they are what makes a house really feel like home – we all love the feeling of sinking our feet into our favorite rug when we wake up in the mornings or snuggling up on the couch to watch TV after a long day at work. Well-maintained carpet and upholstery also play a big part in making guests feel comfortable in your home as well. Unfortunately, when it comes to proper care and cleaning, carpets and upholstery are often some of the most neglected parts of our homes!

Constant traffic, plus continual contact with dirt, pet odors, and stains mean that carpets and upholstery need to be cleaned much more often than you might think. But cleaning carpets and upholstery isn’t as simple as a DIY recipe. Common household cleaners can damage most fabrics used for upholstery. And even if they don’t, because each fabric and material is different, a quick wipe down doesn’t do the trick. The buildup of dirt and stains will damage the carpet and upholstery over time. Vacuuming doesn’t do as deep a cleaning job as you might think on your carpets, and the size and delicate materials of your rugs mean you can’t just throw them in the wash. And we haven’t even gotten to your antique padded dining chairs! Don’t risk damaging your heirlooms and investments with common sprays or soaps!

So, keeping your carpets and upholstery properly cleaned is easier said than done… or is it?

At Fresh Start Carpet Cleaning, we’re proud to offer top-of-the-line convenience, professionalism, and industry knowledge to help keep your home fresh! And we believe that professional carpet and upholstery cleaning should be accessible and affordable, which is why we’re offering a 15% discount for our cleaning services in honor of Veteran’s Day! From November 9th – 18th, enjoy 15% off on services that make it easy to keep your home clean and your family healthy.

Hiring a professional carpet and upholstery cleaning service means that you can have the peace of mind that comes with keeping your home fresh while at the same time knowing that we take expert care of your home furnishings, flooring, and furniture. Our experience with all kinds of materials means that we have the perfect solution for any fabric – from that brand new carpet to your Grandmother’s heirloom antique sofa.

And because we always keep your family’s wellbeing in mind, we use cleaning products that are safe for both children and pets! Whether you need pet stain removals, pet odor removals, or just a deep cleaning and freshening up before out of town guests storm your house for the holidays, we’re here for you!

From Cherry Hill to Burlington, Willingboro to Bucks County, we’re the caring and convenient carpet and upholstery cleaning solution! We always offer free estimates, so don’t hesitate to call us today at 609-505-1624 or contact us online!

Home (Carpet Cleaning) for the Holidays!

8 Reasons Why You Should Have Your Carpets Professionally Cleaned Before Winter

There’s no place like home for the holidays…unless your house is filled with dirty carpets! Even if your floors don’t look dirty, there are many reasons why professionally cleaning your carpets now will help make your winter season delightful, especially in a sometimes-frightful climate like New Jersey.

There’s no place like home for the holidays…unless your house is filled with dirty carpets! Even if your floors don’t look dirty, there are many reasons why professionally cleaning your carpets now will help make your winter season delightful, especially in a sometimes-frightful climate like New Jersey.

  1. Winter is coming! And as New Jersey’s snow, wind, and sub-twenty temperatures close in, you’ll be closing your windows and doors and trying to keep them closed. This traps heat but also traps all those dirt particles, germs, and allergens from summer.
  2. Germs are always on the naughty list. With kids off on winter break, guests traipsing in from all around the country, and that holiday party that you still need to plan, it’s important to keep your home a sanitation wonderland. Infectious organisms grow more easily in dirty carpet, and flu season is bad enough without making your home a breeding ground for germs! Plus, who wants to be sick for “the most wonderful time of the year?”
  3. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire is more the home aroma you’re going for, right? Unfortunately, the musty smells that waft through the house from your dirty carpet are more the “bah, humbug” type of vibe.
  4. Live long and proper. This can apply to both you and your carpets with the help of a professional cleaning service like Fresh Start. Many DIY cleaning solutions actually wear down your carpet or don’t properly remove dirt. Get a clean slate for all those cozy winter nights-in.
  5. The schedule is packed! And we don’t just mean holiday parties. Professional cleaning services here in New Jersey book fast during the holidays, so don’t wait for the night before Christmas to give your out of town guests a clean house to visit.
  6. Hot chocolate out of control. Rockin’ around the Christmas tree can lead to some not-so festive spills and carpet stains if you’re not careful (which your guests and kids won’t be). The dirtier your carpet is, the more likely it is for stains to become permanent. And no one put that on their Christmas list!
  7. Less inconvenience. It might seem counter-intuitive with all that slush happening outside, but carpets will actually dry faster once the humidity drops in the winter. This means less time playing tip-toe hopscotch just to get from the living room to the kitchen.
  8. Peace on Earth. Professionally cleaning your carpets just gives an overall airy and relaxing feel to your home, providing you with the haven you need in the frenzy of the holidays and unpleasant weather.

So, don’t wait to make clean carpets your New Year’s Resolution. Give you, your family, and your guests an early gift this year! Schedule your professional carpet cleaning with the carpet cleaning elves themselves: Fresh Start Carpet Cleaning (609) 505-1624

The Process of Water Damage Restoration

Whether you own a home or a business, water damage can disrupt your schedule, your budget, the function of your property, and your peace of mind. What steps can you take to prevent water damage from wreaking havoc? Understanding the common culprits of water damage can help prevent both its causes and effects.Whether you own a home or a business, water damage can disrupt your schedule, your budget, the function of your property, and your peace of mind. What steps can you take to prevent water damage from wreaking havoc? Understanding the common culprits of water damage can help prevent both its causes and effects. Be aware of these common damage sources that can lead to anything from minor damage to devastating repercussions:

  • Flooding
  • Heavy snow and melting snow
  • Heavy rain
  • Leaky dishwashers
  • Clogged toilets
  • Broken pipes
  • Broken dishwasher hoses
  • Overflowing washing machines
  • Leaky roofs
  • Plumbing leaks
  • Foundation cracks

Although many people think of water damage restoration as the immediate rush of drain buckets, mopping up, and shutting off pipes, the effects of water damage don’t stop after the visible chaos is gone. There are many reasons why professional restoration is needed to help avoid additional problems and costs down the road:

  • Property loss: Untreated water damage doesn’t just impact the structure of your building, but can also destroy upholstery, electronics, appliances, plumbing, priceless personal heirlooms and keepsakes, invaluable business records, and much more.
  • Health risks: Any water damage left untreated can very easily lead to mold and fungi growth. Natural flood water can also carry hazardous contaminants like bacteria, toxic waste, chemical pollutants, and sewage. If not properly treated, these dangers can linger even after the water is dry.
  • Mold and fungi: Lack of an adequate cleanup process creates an inviting territory for mold and fungi spores, which spread and develop quickly. Mold and fungi growth not only lead to more costly damages but also puts your family or customers at risk of potential health problems.
  • Weak structure: Through both mold growth and water absorption, water damage also causes weak floors and walls, posing a serious safety risk in addition to health concerns.
  • Insects: Mold and fungus won’t be the only thing growing in the wake of untreated water damage. Stagnant water and even water that has been left untreated to dry into the structure of your property both create an ideal habitat for insects to lay eggs. Mold grows in similar conditions and emits an odor that further attracts insects.
  • Compromised electrical system: Any electrical wiring or fuse box that has been exposed to water poses a major safety hazard and should always be inspected by professionals before attempting to use.
  • Home value depreciation: Real estate appraisals can detect past untreated water damage and will decrease the value of your home and the chances of selling.
  • Lingering odors: Whether it’s in a home, a workplace, or a business, no one likes those musty, rotting smells.

When you call a professional water damage restoration service, you can ensure that your bases are covered from inspection to drying, to completely cleaned up.

At Fresh Start Carpet Cleaning, we stay with you every step of the way through the restoration process so that water damage feels like it never happened. Click here for a FREE quote or call our 24/7 emergency response team at (609) 505-1624.
