Is Your Carpet Ready For Those Holiday Parties?

  • Shoes track in most of the dust and dirt.  This buildup can create foul odors and trigger asthma attacks.  For starters, position doormats at entrances, ask visitors to take off their shoes and make vacuuming part of your weekly routine.
  • Invest in a quality vacuum cleaner that has a green label called High-Efficiency Particular Air, which keeps dirt in the bag.  Add 1/4 cup of baking soda to the bag when it is half full.
  • When liquids or other messes hit the carpet, act quickly with a solution of clear hand soap or white vinegar and water.  Gently blot the spill from the edge to the center with a towel.  Rubbing cements a stain and causes matting.  Blot until the carpet is completely dry.carpet cleaning 2
  • Professional cleaning will extend the life of carpets.  The Environmental Protection Agency recommends a professional cleaning at least twice a year and even more frequently if you have pets or small children.

Maybe you are tired of carpet and it is time to move up to all tile or hardwood floors.  Before you decide to make those renovations to your current home, call me at 239-601-3174 and find out the true value of your home in this excellent real estate market in Naples Florida.  Maybe your home is worth more than you thought and you can move up to that home with the hardwood floors and tile!  You won’t know unless you call.  I look forward to hearing from you and helping you decide on the best options for you.

Remember, it is always toasty in Naples and you deserve your piece of Naples sunshine and clean carpets!
