What to do about fleas?

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

If fleas have set up residence in your home, what can you do? Let’s face it. Flea infestations aren’t fun. Fleas carry pathogens that can harm humans and pets, such as plague, cat scratch disease, tapeworms, and haemobartonellosis, a parasitic blood disease. Flea larvae in soil can easily be tracked inside your home by your own pets, visiting pets, people, or contaminated items. Once they find their way in, they can easily infest your carpets.

Here are some steps you can take to get rid of fleas.

If you have a pet, use year-round flea treatments to prevent infestations.
Sweep and mop regularly.
Wash pet bedding.
Have your carpets & upholstery professionally cleaned.

*Please note, regular professional carpet cleaning alone is unlikely to eradicate the infestation, because some fleas can survive this process, but it will definitely help.
Vacuum often. Your vacuum is your best line of defense. Don’t just vacuum your carpeting, vacuum upholstery and drapery, too. According to an experiment conducted by Ohio State University, vacuuming effectively kills fleas, eggs, and larvae residing in carpets. If you want to be extra cautious, empty vacuum cleaner canisters or bags into an outside trash receptacle in case any fleas survived the vacuuming process.
Use Borax. More tenacious infestations may require sprinkling Borax into the carpet and along floorboards, working it in with a brush, and leaving it in overnight before vacuuming it up. Test an inconspicuous area first, to make sure this will not discolor your carpets. Borax penetrates the exoskeleton of fleas and dehydrates them. Take care to use goggles, gloves, and a dust mask if you go this route, because although Borax is considered non-toxic, it can still cause eye, skin, and respiratory irritation. After the infestation is resolved, professional carpet cleaning & upholstery cleaning can remove any Borax residue remaining in your carpet. We’d be happy to help if you give us a call.

Five Reasons You Must Have Your Carpets Cleaned

By | Carpet Advice, Uncategorized | No Comments

Carpeting can be a fabulous and practical design element, creating both elegance and coziness at once. However, having carpets cleaned seems to land low on the list of a homeowner’s or building manager’s to-do list. The reality is, carpets are the largest filters in your home or business, collecting dust, dirt, dander, bacteria and allergens.

Indoor air pollutants have been ranked among the top five environmental risks to public health, according to the EPA, and there has been an increase in the number of children with severe allergies and asthma. An EPA study found that the average American spends about 90 percent of their time inside, and dirty carpets could spell trouble.

The Dirty Truths

1. An average of 40 pounds of dust accumulates in a six-room home each year—and a lot of that can end up in carpeting.
2. A known allergen, an estimated 100,000 dust mites can be found in just one square yard of carpet.
3. Cooking grease is easily and invisibly tracked through the home from the kitchen and onto carpets by people and pets—and cannot be vacuumed away.
4. The highly contagious Norovirus has been known to survive on surfaces, such as carpeting, for weeks. Plus, it can become airborne as people walk or play on the carpeting.
5. Vacuuming dirty, neglected carpets can do more harm than good by recirculating nasty germs. A University of Arizona study discovered half of the vacuum cleaner brushes they examined tested positive for fecal bacteria, including 13 percent with E. coli.

The Clean Solutions

1. If you have an old vacuum cleaner (you know if you do), replace it. Your new vacuum should have a HEPA filter to stop the spread of allergens. Some vacuums are now being designed to kill dust mites.
2. Vacuum regularly; daily if you have a pet, otherwise twice a week.
3. Have your carpets cleaned by a professional, reputable carpet and floor cleaning company.
4. Create a schedule with your professional carpet cleaning company to keep you on track. Life is busy—they can send you reminders when it’s time.
5. Place rugs and mats at all entryways to trap some of the grit and dirt before it ends up on your carpeting. (And while it may be uncomfortable to ask visitors to remove their shoes when they enter your home, you could convince your family to do so.)

Let’s face it, carpeting is continuously traipsed on by people and pets with dirty shoes and paws. Carpets that are not regularly cleaned will end up looking the part, and even worse, could make people sick.
