Tips for Carpet Cleaning

Ever wondered health professionals do it?

We have fantastic track record when it comes to the cleaning, maintenance and cleaning up of carpet so check out some of our tips on how the pros do it.

How to ensure that you get lasting value and a long life from your carpets

Vacuum the carpet regularly with a good quality vacuum cleaner that has a rotating brush and a good filter. This will help reduce the buildup of oil as well as removing a lot of dust and gunk.

  • Examine the carpet before using any cleaner. Some carpet are quite sensitive to certain asset types of cleaners so it is important to check if your carpet is sensitive, otherwise the wrong cleaner could act as a bleach making the staying you are trying to remove the least of your problems.
  • Don’t you strong spotting agents in less necessary, and always neutralise the pH balance of a high alkaline cleaner after its use.
  • If you need to use a spotting agent, start with the mildest and slowly work towards the harsher cleaners.
  • Don’t brush the spot to clean it, the correct method is to rub it towards the middle and then compress using a cloth to soak up.
  • Be careful with detergents. Don’t increase the quantity beyond what is recommended because it won’t boost the efficiency of the cleaner. What actually happens is it will leave a residue which will be hard to remove with a vacuum cleaner. It’s this residue that will end up being sticky, and so it will attract more dust and lead to dirtier carpets faster than ever before.
  • Don’t use too much water. Using too much water can cause all sorts of problems including carpet shrinkage, warping, adhesion problems and colour changes.
  • Make sure the carpet is a dry within 12 hours of cleaning. Carpet that is slow to dry builds up mould and mildew, they smell and the smell tends to hang around a long time. So use a good ventilation, central heating or air conditioning to help dry carpets fast.
  • For some reason, people seem to spill a lot of chocolate milk on carpet. We have found the best product to remove this is called “simple green” (it’s non-toxic and we think it works great).

Taking care of your carpets will help make sure that the carpet last for a lot longer. Cleaning your carpet is something that should happen regularly, especially vacuuming. So how often you need to clean the carpet will depend on how much where it sees, the season and the weather and more.

Cleaning Shower Doors

A shower door adds to the beauty of your bathroom, however, with all that moisture and humidity, they also tend to get pretty dirty. If you don’t clean them atleast once a week, they become dull and dirty. Don’t want that happening right? Time to start cleaning shower doors! GSR’s cleaning team is back once more with some helpful cleaning tips for you.

There are recommended ways to clean glass shower doors that will maintain its sparkle and shine.

Use Ajax Professional Ultra Bathroom Cleaner:

The best recommended product for cleaning shower doors is Ajax Professional Ultra Bathroom Cleaner. Comet has developed a spray on a liquid that is non-abrasive and is especially used for glass, vinyl, and metal components of a shower door. It is a liquid spray that is easy to apply and wipe off, however, you need to give the product time to work, especially if soap scum (a heavy buildup that comes from the talc in bar soap) is to be removed from the shower door.

P.S – If you want to avoid the formation of soap scum because of the soap bars, then it’s better to use liquid soaps. Safe and easy to store.

Remove Excess Moisture from the Shower 

Another important cleaning technique for shower doors is to squeegee after showering. It removes excess moisture from the shower and avoids water spots that can be difficult and almost impossible to remove. A plastic squeegee is a shower door’s best friend, and should be included in any bathroom cleaning kit.Do not use the metal squeegee as that could damage the shower glass and create scratches.

Clean the Shower Door Weekly

A shower door should be cleaned weekly to maintain optimum cleanliness and shine. Frequent cleanings and use of the squeegee will reduce the need for heavy cleaning and scrubbing. The longer you keep a shower door uncleaned, the tougher it will be on you. So, in order to keep your shower door looking as good as new, maintain the cleaning routine and use recommended cleaning products.

It’s not enough to just build a beautiful bathroom. You need to maintain it and keep it clean and sparkly because this is the place where you find the most relaxation. It should be germ free, mold-free and grime-free!
