Five Star Customer Reviews for Koshgarian Rug Cleaners

“Would refer Koshgarian to everyone! It was easy making an appointment for upholstery cleaning. When the crew came, they were very professional and went over my “wish list” for items to be cleaned. Upon going over the list, it was determined that I had not listed a few pieces of furniture. They wrote in the items that were not originally on my agenda and when the billing came, they were priced exactly what I was quoted at the time of cleaning. We will call them again next year!”

Firstly, carpet cleaning can improve the appearance of your home. It can also extend the life of your carpet. But perhaps, most importantly, a vital and valuable benefit from the process is improving you and your family’s health.

According to the American Lung Association, if members of your household suffer from conditions that can affect their breathing, such as snoring or asthma, it’s especially crucial that you vacuum your carpets at least three times a week.

Beyond vacuuming regularly, you may also benefit from having your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year. If you’re not fully convinced of the benefits of professional carpet cleaning, consider the following top three ways the process leads to a healthier home:

carpet cleaning

1. Carpet cleaning eliminates trapped pollutants.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a dirty carpet can retain several sources of indoor air pollutants, including pet dander, cockroach allergens, lead, particle pollution, and everyday dirt and dust. Toxic airborne gases can adhere to these particles and also get trapped within the carpet.

Therefore, these toxic gases can be released through everyday activities. During activities such as vacuuming and walking across the carpet, which can cause them to contaminate the air in your home. Professional carpet cleaning services kills these bacteria through special shampooing formulas and can remove deeply trapped pollutants with high-powered vacuums.

2. Carpet cleaning can clear out dust mite infestations.

Many homes have dust mite infestations, yet most homeowners aren’t aware of the infestation, because the creatures are microscopic. Dust mites themselves aren’t allergens, but they often leave behind feces and body fragments which are.

Because of the microscopic size of these particles, they can easily be inhaled when the area is disturbed, which can exacerbate allergies. Many professional carpet cleaning companies utilize a technique known as steam cleaning when performing carpet maintenance work. Steam cleaning exposes your carpet to high temperatures that dust mites can’t survive.

3. Carpet cleaning can help prevent mold growth.

Especially in areas with high humidity levels, dirty carpets are at a high risk of developing mold growth when exposed to moisture. In precipitous weather, moisture frequently gets tracked into the home and can sink deep in the carpet fibers if not dried and vacuumed immediately.

Having your carpet cleaned regularly can prevent mold and mildew growth. This is because professional carpet cleaners have high-powered drying tools that annihilate moisture. By eliminating moisture, you can prevent mold growth that can be harmful to your health if ignored for too long.

Happy New Year! We hope you have had a fabulous holiday, spending lots of quality time with friends and family. And now that it’s the beginning of the year, you have a clean slate and a clean home! Whatever your resolutions are for this year, be sure one of them is to keep your home as tidy and clean as you have always wanted it to be. This is your chance to get ahead of things and stay on top of cleaning so that you have a house that you love coming home to.

The #1 item that will help you keep your home clean and sanitized is to have your carpet, rug and upholstery professional cleaned. Your tile and granite most likely also need some much-needed attention. Having the basics covered will motivate you and your family to keep the house picked up year round.

Here are a few rules to help you tame the clutter in your house:

Rule 1: When in doubt, throw it out.
Rule 2: Use it or lose it.
Rule 3: Efficiency counts, so store things accordingly.

Relax. A cleaning routine needn’t consume your life – or even a big chunk of your time in 2019. Keeping the big items in your house clean will help keep the rest neat and tidy.

With holiday entertaining in mind, we thought the following tips may be of interest to you.  It seems that when food and beverages are served, spills on your carpet and rugs often follow.  If you’ve dealt with the resulting spots – during or after a holiday gathering – you’re in good company.  Our top three holiday spills and cures are listed below.

Spill #3 – Gravy

People often ask:

How does gravy get on the floor anyway?

Doesn’t everyone pay attention when passing the gravy boat?

Gravy somehow finds its way to your carpet and area rugs, and gravy has edged out whipped cream to make it onto our list of holiday spills.

Spill #2 – Coffee

Coffee and “holiday party jostles” go together like cream and sugar, so coffee drips are almost expected.  We have two cures for coffee spills, one for coffee and one for coffee with cream.

Spill #1 – Red Wine

Between making toasts, friendly hugs and general high spirits, spilling wine seems to be a part of every good holiday get-together.  Red wine can leave a permanent stain on textiles, caused by both naturally occurring color and added dyes. (White wine spills are just as common … they just don’t become obvious until they become sticky and darker as they start attracting soil.)

Knowing what to do can help alleviate your holiday gathering “carpet spill stress”.   Here’s what you need to know:

Gravy

Gravy and whipped cream spills share similarities in how they are handled:

– Spills with a heavier consistency like creams, butter or gravy can sit on top of the fiber for a short time before soaking into the carpet nap.  If the spill is still on the nap and not in the nap, work from the edge to the center using a dull knife, spoon or spatula to get under the goo and remove it before it sinks in.
– Keep transferring what you pick up to a container or disposable towel.  Removing semi-solids in this way will make removal of what’s left a lot simpler.
– Apply warm water.  At this point making the last of the spilled residue thinner makes it easier to remove.
– Blot up the warm water and residual gravy using absorbent paper or cotton towels.

– If any residue remains, mix a mild detergent solution:  ½ teaspoon liquid dishwashing detergent in one cup of warm water.
– Apply the mild detergent solution.
– Blot until you no longer detect a transfer of moisture.
– Apply warm water to rinse.
– Blot.

At this point you may want to fold a pad of whitepaper or cotton towels and place them over the spill, then add weight.  Change absorbent pad as necessary. Just make sure the weight will not transfer color to the carpet as water is drawn into the toweling.

If the gravy has dried, use the same dull-edged tool to break the residue up and vacuum.  Sticky residue can be treated starting with the addition of a mild detergent solution.

Coffee

– Blot until there is no more liquid being absorbed into white, absorbent paper or cotton towels.
– If coffee color remains, apply warm water.
– Blot up the warm water using paper or cotton towels.
– If color remains, use the detergent solution noted above (½ teaspoon liquid dishwashing detergent in one cup of warm water).
– Blot until you no longer detect a transfer of color and moisture.
– If color remains, mix 1/3 cup of white vinegar with 2/3 cup of water to make a mild acidic solution.  The acid solution can work to make the stain less visible.
– Apply the mild acid solution.
– Blot.

If the coffee contains cream it may be necessary to apply a protein-dissolving enzyme.  Enzyme products are available at most supermarkets; make sure the product is appropriate for the fiber content of your carpet.  Apply the enzyme product, blot, apply water to rinse, and blot again.

Red Wine

– As with coffee, blot the spill to remove as much liquid as possible.
– Skip applying water and go right to applying the detergent solution.
– Blot, apply water, and blot again.
– If the stain remains, mix 1 tablespoon of household ammonia with a 1/2 cup of warm water.  Ammonia can help release coffee dyes from the carpet fiber.
– Apply the ammonia solution to the coffee stained area.
– Blot with white absorbent paper or cotton towels until you no longer detect a transfer of color and moisture.
– Apply the mild acid solution (1/3 cup of white vinegar with 2/3 cup of water) and blot.  The acid solution can work to make the stain less visible.
– Apply clear water and blot.

Heard the online tip about getting red wine out using white wine? It can work, as wine contains acetic acid.  Wine is just a lot more expensive than white vinegar.

Additional tips for all carpet/rug spot removal:

– For removing spills on any rug or carpet, remove as much of the spill as possible before adding water or cleaning solutions. For these stains and those that have sat for a while, professional help will be needed. Call us today or visit our website at www.koshgarianrugcleaners.com.
– With all stain removal, think blot, don’t rub.  Rubbing a spot can distort the fiber, so even if you get the spill out you could be left with a texture-distorted, fuzzy area.
– A small trigger sprayer can be used to apply any of these solutions and will help control the amount of liquid being applied to your carpet.
– If you happen to have a wet-vac or home carpet spotting machine, you can use it in place of blotting.  Most of these machines are more efficient at putting water down than they are at picking water up, so spend more time using the vacuum than adding water.

Rugs of all sorts are perfect for living room and dining room areas and several other areas of your home. Heirloom Oriental and Area rugs add warmth, color and heaps of comfort to the floors of your home for you and your family. Therefore, small ones make great entryway décor. Ones for the bathroom provide comfort to the feet as you get cleaned up. The places and uses you can have for area rugs within the home are endless. Rugs can collect dirt, odors, allergens, and discolorations from the ongoing foot traffic it endures day in and day out. Rug cleaning is essential.

Frequent vacuuming and spot treatment is helpful. However, it is imperative to have a skilled technician do comprehensive maintenance every now and then. The more foot-traffic it is exposed to, the more often it will need a good cleaning. Hiring professional rug cleaners for a rug cleaning is the best way to help get them clean and looking almost brand new.

Best of all, receiving area rug cleaning services will help the rugs last longer so the constant need to buy new ones does not need to occur, which will keep money in your pocket for other things needed for your beautiful home.

Your rugs, whether hand-knotted, family heirlooms or modern accent pieces – are representative of your style and your home. They are an investment and require proper care. Call today to schedule an appointment!

Tips for your Fall To-Do List: You probably give your home a deep clean in the spring, but you should also show it some love at the beginning of fall. Here’s where to start:

fall to-do list

1. Perform a pantry audit.

First, remove all the cans and boxes from the shelves, and vacuum away any lingering dust or crumbs (a lot can build up in a few months!). Then, inspect each item, tossing anything that is expired or past its prime. Consult this shelf-life chart as a helpful guide and part of your fall to-do list.

2. Test smoke detectors and clean vents/ducts.

You already know to put fresh batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors (doing it on the days you change the clocks for Daylight Saving Time is an easy way to remember). If any are more than 10 years old, replace them. But you also need to clean your dryer vents & air ducts, since dust that accumulates can cause them to underperform or start a house fire!

3. Flip your mattress.

When you turn back your clocks, turn your mattress over, too. If you can’t flip it because it has a pillowtop, rotate it 180 degrees to prevent body impressions form causing certain spots to slump. Sprinkle the mattress with baking soda to neutralize odors, and then vacuum it up.

4. Clean your rugs and carpet.

Get a jump on holiday party season by giving your rugs and carpeting a good scrub. We recommend getting a professional cleaning once a year to keep up.

5. Vacuum all upholstered surfaces.

You think your couch is clean until you plop on it, and a haze of dust appears around you. Give sofas and chairs a good vacuuming, making sure to hit both sides of the cushions, the back, sides, arms, and even the platform underneath the cushions. We also recommend getting a professional upholstery cleaning once a year.
