Revitalize your grout and tile with ease - Tips

January 15, 2017

Need your tile and grout cleaned?  Leave it to the professionals, let us do all the hard work.  Stay Clean will clean and rejuvenate your tile and grout by using eco-friendly products in combination with  a powerful truck mount system making your tile and grout look great again! 


For a homemade spot remover try Dawn dishwashing detergent mixed with hydrogen peroxide. Mix one to one. Use very sparingly and rinse well. 

If you want your light coloured carpets to look better longer try vacuuming regularly (twice a week) and wear white socks. Why not dark coloured socks you ask? The fabric from dark socks transfers on to the carpet giving it the appearance of having dirty carpet but in reality it is the fabric from the dark socks.

Three Reasons People Don't Get Their Carpet Cleaned

1. It Gets dirty faster.

    This is a possibility if the cleaner you hire leaves too much soap residue in  carpet. It will leave the carpet with a sticky film and dirt will be attracted to it. Image going to the sink to wash your hands and not rinsing them off well.

2.  Can Afford It.

     Vacuuming regularly will definitely help but it is imperative to  clean your carpet regularly to rid them of the sweat, embedded dirty, and grit that will take years off of the life of the carpet. it is cheaper to clean than replace.

3. I don't want them to change the price at the door.

Here is why you Hesitate

   You have a fear of the unknown. You have probably heard about some horror story from one of your friends having a bad experience getting their upholstery or carpets cleaned and you don't want to be another victim. I get it.  When you call a carpet cleaning company ask a lot of questions like: what type of equipment do you use; what type of chemicals do you use; experience; referrals; free estimates; can you do a spot? You don't want to come across as cynical but you are a paying customer and the company you call is supposed provide you with a professional service and they should be able to answer all of your questions to your satisfaction.  if the company doesn't not provide truck mounted cleaning I would move on. Being a carpet cleaner for  the past 17 years I have hands on experience with a portable and a truck mounted machine. Without hesitation i would always choose a company that services carpet with a truck mount: it is more powerful; hotter water; higher water pressure; and better vacuum.  

How long do I have to wait before I walk on the carpet after it has been cleaned?

     You can walk on the carpet right after it has been cleaned with clean shoes on stocking feet.

Buyers are sold on clean carpets

When it comes time to sell your house, it’s natural to relive the memories you’ve made there - that time breakfast in bed toppled to the floor, the months you spent puppy training, bub's painting project that didn’t quite stay on the page. Life’s messy, and many of the memories we make in our homes spell wear and tear for our poor old carpets. While potential buyers understand this, they’re also far more likely to buy a home with fresh clean carpets. Here’s why:

A clean slate

A new home represents a fresh start for a family, and newly-cleaned carpets are the perfect way to present a blank canvas to potential buyers. The feel, look and smell of clean carpets let potential buyers know that the home is ready to move into, creating not only a welcoming feeling but a sense of urgency, too!

A healthy home

If you’ve ever let your vacuuming slide for a few days, you’ll know just how much dust and dirt can accumulate in a short period of time. In order to avoid putting off a potential buyer with odours - or worse, allergies and asthma - it’s essential to put your best rug forward.

Vacuuming isn’t enough

When we live with a carpet day in, day out, we tend to forget what colour it once was - until we move furniture, and it comes flooding back! A professional carpet clean can work wonders to restore your floors to their former glory, helping them to appear more evenly coloured and worn, and feel more plush, projecting a greater sense of value.

Investing in the services of a quality, professional carpet cleaner when you’re moving home will bring cleanliness and luxury to your home, ensuring potential buyers can see themselves enjoying many years of their own thrills - and spills - there.
