Spring isn’t the only time to take charge of cleaning your home or office. Autumn brings some of the worst mess, and as the cold weather approaches, you can find yourself surrounded by dirt and grime.
If you have children or pets, you know the struggle of keeping the house clean – especially with sports starting, friends coming over for play-dates all the time, and the mud that autumn rains will bring.
You don’t have to live with the sweat-stains and the dirty cleat-tracks, however. If you notice your furniture is starting to smell or feel unpleasant, there is an easy fix. The Dry Guys do professional, environmentally sensitive cleanings of both your carpet and upholstered furniture, keeping you one step ahead of the mess!
Carpets need to be cleaned at least once a year, but if you have a high-traffic home, you may want to schedule a few touch-ups throughout the year. Many people are hesitant to clean their carpets because of the hassle, but the Dry Guys provide a perfect solution.
With the HOST Dry Extraction System carpet cleaning method, we can efficiently clean your carpets with less mess and 1 teaspoon of moisture (per square foot), leaving your carpets fluffy and dry. No need to move out temporarily or tip-toe around your house until the carpet dries, our process leaves them ready-to-walk on within minutes after the cleaning.
With upholstery, the job is no different. Our specialized dry foam cleaning method removes mud, dirt, grime, and even sweat and skin cells from the fabric of your upholstered furniture, leaving it looking newer and fresh.
Upholstery & Carpet Cleaning Tips
If you’re still worried about the day-to-day cleanliness of your furniture and home, here are a few tips to keeping your upholstery and carpets clean in between professional cleanings:
- Keep spot treatments on hand. Feel free to ask our specialists for recommendations and furniture-safe products, and keep them under the sink in case of accidents. A spilled drink or a pet accident doesn’t have to be the end of the world – if you’re prepared.
- Move your furniture often. Changing the flow of a room can direct traffic and expose cleaner carpet space, so you’re not left with uneven patches by the end of the season. Change is good when it comes to giving rooms fresh looks, but if you don’t mind getting used to a new path in the dark.
- Shoes off at the door. Many foreign countries carry this rule as a traditional courtesy, and for good reason. Taking off your shoes at the door can keep you from tracking dirt into the house, and save you a lot of trouble on muddy or rainy days.
- Throw blankets or couch covers. You don’t have to coat your couch in plastic or dress it in a frumpy slipcover to protect it. A blanket over the back of the couch can protect it from sweaty necks, and crochet covers can keep the arms of your recliner from meeting too many messy hands. It is much easier to wash a blanket over an entire couch, after all.
Don’t settle for sub-par furniture and carpet cleanings. Call the Dry Guys for a thorough evaluation, estimate, and cleaning today, and get a step ahead with a ready-for-fall clean home.
