Avid coffee drinkers have a tendency to reach for the warm soothing and stimulating cup of a fresh brew in the morning and throughout the day. Some need their cup of coffee first thing in the morning to get the day started, or two cups, or three cups, the more frequently you reach for a warm rich coffee indulgence, only increases the likelihood of it spilling on the carpet. Treating fresh coffee spills can prevent stubborn stains from developing so, taking a moment to treat the coffee spot is essential as soon as it happens. Not only can an unsightly stain occur, but the creamers and milk can create some unpleasant odors if it sits. Today, we at Carpet Care 2000 would like to take the opportunity to share a few steps that will help get the coffee stain out of your carpet.

How to Get Coffee Spills Out of Carpet

1) Promptly blot the coffee spill. A fresh spill should immediately be treated by first using white paper towels or dry cloths to blot the excess moisture. Start the process by blotting the outer edges of the spill and work your way towards the center to prevent it from expanding outward. If the coffee spot is dry, lightly dampen it with water, them blot the excess moisture as you would if it were fresh.
2) Mix the carpet cleaning solution ingredients. Mix together 2 cups warm water (not hot), 1 cup of white vinegar, and 1 tsp of liquid dish soap. A spray bottle will help you better apply the solution, but a bowl or bucket will suffice. Either mist the inflicted area moderately or treat a clean cloth with the solution and blot the stain. Be sure that you use a dry cloth in between applications to avoid over saturation.
3) Never scrub or rub, only blot to treat the spill. When treating any spills, spots, or stains on carpets, it is crucial you never use scrubbing or rubbing techniques; only blot. Scrubbing and rubbing will only make the mess worse by spreading it out and pushing it deeper in the carpet. Not only can the carpet be affected, but so can the carpet padding and subfloor. If you need to work the solution into the fibers, simply use your fingers to work it in.
4) Should the stain persist. In some cases, you may notice the coffee only lightens instead of removes, you can make a paste adding a few drops of water to baking soda at a time. Apply the paste to the stain until it is dry and vacuum it up. Any light coffee residue and attached odors should be cleared.

Marble is one of the most desirable natural stones used in many home and even commercial buildings. However, it is also one of the softest and easiest types of natural stone to stain and erode. This is why it is important to know how to properly care for marble. Today Carpet Care 2000 will share how to clean the various stains on marble and how to make your own homemade poultice or marble stain remover.

Marble Stain Remover Supplies

Basic Supplies:
Mineral Water
White Absorbent Mineral
Liquid Solvent
Bowl, Spatula, and Spoon/Glass or Plastic
Plastic Wrap and Masking Tape
All marble poultices are made from white absorbent material and some kind of liquid solvent. Some white absorbent material can be white cotton balls, paper towels, cleaning cloths, or even baking soda. White flour may also be used. The liquid solvent will vary depending on the type of stain you’re removing. The stain will first need to be identified. Afterward you can then use the best and proper stain removing method.

Identifying Stains on Marble

Rust Stains – Rust stains are easily identified, with an obvious copper or brownish color and often in the shape of a metallic item. Rust stains are most common in bathrooms or on countertops or areas with high moisture exposure. Unfortunately, rust is also one of the most difficult types of stain to remove from marble. The best solvent for a rust stain is a commercial liquid rust stain remover.
Organic Stains – Organic based stains are stains that may have occurred from foods, and liquids or even hand soaps, lotions and plant matter. Organic stains may vary in color depending on the source. However the color will be similar to the source of the stain. The best solvent for organic stains is 6% hydrogen peroxide.
Oil Based Stains – Oil based stains become very dark in color. In many cases food, drinks, or other solvents high in oil will leave behind a pinkish-brown or dark brown color. The best solvent for oil based stains is acetone or mineral spirits.
Ink Stains – Ink stains from pens, markers and even red wines. Ink stains will leave behind the pigment of the ink onto the marble. Ink stains are easily identified. The best solvent for inks is 6% hydrogen peroxide or ammonia.

Making a Marble Poultice

The first step to making your own poultice is to get a bowl and add one cup of the recommended solvent for the stain you’re removing. Then combine baking soda with the solvent until it forms a paste similar to the consistency of peanut butter. Before applying the mixture, wipe the area clean with a clean cloth. Use the mineral water to dampen the cloth. The mineral water that is poured onto the marble allows the cleaning mixture to penetrate deeper. Next, apply the mixture. Since it is a paste, make sure to cover the stain with the paste about ¼ to ½ of an inch in height. Make sure there are no air pockets in the paste. Cover the paste with plastic wrap and use the masking tape to hold down the edges so it seals the paste in. Keep the paste on top of the stain until the paste completely dries and hardens. This may take 48 hours. To remove the paste, pour water over the top of the poultice to soften it and then use a wooden or plastic spatula to scrape the paste off of the marble. Next wipe the surface clean with plain water.

In most cases, it only takes one application. In a few scenarios, you may need to repeat the process if the stain isn’t fully removed. Taking care of marble takes diligence. If your marble has been stained and you prefer professionals to clean and care for your marble, then contact Carpet Care 2000.

Whether you are purchasing carpet for your brand new home or replacing carpet in a home you have owned for years, you are hoping to pick out a carpet that will last for a decade. Unfortunately most consumers do not have much knowledge on the carpet buying process. Carpet Care 2000 has compiled a list of tips for homeowners who are currently in the market for some new carpet.

Memory Foam, Flat Rubber or Other Carpet Padding

Underneath the carpet that you install in your home there is a padding that will impact the feel of your carpet more than you imagine. Carpet padding provides support and extra cushioning for the carpet. If you choose inadequate padding you will definitely feel the weight of that decision on your feet and knees. Thin padding can make it feel like you are walking around on concrete and cause unnecessary pain to your feet and knees. Carpet padding will also help insulate your home and absorb sound. Quality carpet padding also helps prevent deterioration of the carpet fibers and backing. Carpet manufacturers will recommend carpet padding that will match the carpet that you select.

What Are the Different Styles of Carpet?

Shopping for carpets can be an overwhelming experience! Searching online for carpet types will provide you with a list of carpet options that can make your head spin. Do you want Saxony, velvet, frieze, shag, Axminster, berber, ribbed, plush, wool, silk, cotton, linen, Sisal, jute, coir, sea grass, paper, polyester, Olefin, or nylon? Each style has its own unique pros and cons. What you choose is truly a matter of personal choice. Make sure that you do your research prior to selecting your carpet to ensure that your purchase best suits the needs of your family.

Carpet Price

Most consumers are not lucky enough to have an unlimited amount of funds to use on their carpet purchase. Since staying on budget is a factor, you will want to make sure that you get the biggest bang for your buck. Stain-resistant carpet is frequently one of the more expensive carpeting options. If your carpet is going to be placed in a heavy traffic area you may want to consider purchasing stain-resistant carpet.

Carpet Colors & Pattern Trends

When you walk into a carpeting store you are immediately faced with hundreds of carpet color and pattern choices. You will want to take some carpet samples home with you to make sure that they match the feel of the rest of your room. What you like in the store is not always what you like the best in your home.

Carpet Weight

Carpet weight is one of the terms that you will hear thrown around when you begin your carpet shopping process. Many consumers get set on wanting a carpet with the highest weight. While weight is one of the factors to consider, there are other elements to consider as well. The twist and density of the carpet will affect what weight the carpet should be. Don’t assume that the higher the carpet weight, the better the carpet.

Installation Cost

Once you have selected your carpet you will need to select an installer. Installing carpet is a skill that most homeowners do not possess. Carefully selecting a professional carpet installation company will be an important part of your process. If your carpet is not correctly installed your carpet can not only look terrible, it can also not wear the way that it was intended.

After your carpet is installed you will want to make sure that you maintain it properly. Frequently vacuuming your carpet is an absolute must. In addition to vacuuming, you will want to have your carpet professionally cleaned at least once a year and even more if you have pets, allergy sufferers or many people living in the home. Carpet Care 2000 would love to help you take care your new purchase so that we can help make sure that your carpet lasts as long as expected. Contact us today!

Your darling children are home for the summer – hooray! Having extra time to spend with your children during the summer months is an opportunity to create magical memories that you and your children will cherish forever. Summer vacations, extra playdates, playing board games, making crafts, watching movies, cooking together, and more will bring smiles to your children’s faces. For most families not every summer moment is magical though. Extra messes on your carpet are bound to happen when your kids are home all summer long. Of the different types of stains that may find their way onto your carpet, make-up stains can be some of the most overwhelming to know what to do with. So what can you do if you find yourself needing to remove make-up from your carpet?

How to Remove Lipstick from Carpet

The ingredients in lipstick, including grease and bright coloring, make it exceptionally hard to get out of your carpet. First gather a white cloth, rubbing alcohol or paint remover, cleaning gloves, water, and detergent. Next you will want to make sure you remove excess lipstick from the carpet. Put your cleaning gloves on. Then soak the white cloth in the rubbing alcohol or paint remover and squeeze off any excess. You do not want your white cloth to be soaked completely in the liquid. Take the cloth and slowly, but firmly dab it on the lipstick stain from the outside to the inside. Make sure that you do not rub the stain. Keep dabbing until the lipstick is all gone. Once the lipstick is gone you will need to remove the alcohol or paint remover from the carpet. Mix the water with some detergent. Dab the detergent mixture onto the area to remove the alcohol or paint remover. You will want to make sure that no one steps on the area until the carpet is dry.

Removing Liquid Foundation Spills on Carpet

Just like lipstick, liquid foundation can be hard to remove because of the grease inside of the cosmetic. We recommend gathering a white cloth, 3% hydrogen peroxide, a spray bottle with water in it, cleaning gloves, and an iron. Use a white cloth to absorb the excess foundation from the carpet. Get a clean white cloth, soak a section of the cloth in hydrogen peroxide, and squeeze off the excess. Gently dab the stain with this soaked white cloth. Dab the carpet until the stain is fully removed. Once the stain is gone, use a spray bottle of water to dissolve the hydrogen peroxide on the carpet. Once the cleaning process is complete, make sure that no one steps on the carpet until it is dry. If your stain does not come up with the above method, you will want to try this. Pour some of the hydrogen peroxide directly onto the stain. Get a damp white cloth and cover the area where you just poured the hydrogen peroxide. Place a hot iron the top of the cloth and wait for a few minutes. Remove the iron and your stain should be gone.

How to Get Eyeliner & Mascara Marks Out of Carpet

Though the dark stains caused from eyeliner and mascara can seem like they may be impossible to remove, they are actually some of the easiest make-up stains to remove. Get a cup of warm water, ordinary cleaning liquid, and a white cleaning cloth ready. Wet the cloth with your warm water and squeeze the excess water out of the cloth. Dab the cloth carefully but firmly on the stain. Continue dabbing until the stain is removed. Gently rinse the soap residue off of the carpet with warm water once the stain is removed.

There are some areas of your home that need special attention when you are cleaning them. The dust in your house has special sprays to keep it at bay. The windows are best cleaned with the special blue streak free cleaner. The same goes for trying to keep your carpets clean too. They are a huge part of the house and after being used and walked on so often they need to be cleaned properly. The cleaning does not always look the same depending on the problem you are up against. If you have mud you want to let it dry before you take to cleaning. If you have almost any other stain you need to work as soon as you can to get it cleaned out. This is also true when you are dealing with water on your carpet. The water can actually leave stains on the carpet from the sediment that is left in the water. There are also secondary problems when your carpet is soaked with water and that is mold and mildew growth. They can cause a health problem for you and your family members. There are some common ways that your carpets can end up being soaked or damp.

Carpet Care 2000 Lists Some of the Causes of Water Damage & Restoration Tips

Leaking Pipes: When you think about how much water you use in your house it might not surprise you that a leaking pipe can be the reason for your carpets to become wet. The water can come from a pipe that is under a sink or in a wall that is bringing water to many areas of your home. Sometimes they are hidden enough that it can be hard to even figure out where it is coming from. Once the pipe starts to leak it can soak through your home including the carpets. The great thing is that the water that is dripping out is called clean water and is coming from the main source and is not full of any extra contaminants. You can have these types of carpe water damage cleaned.
Leaky Roof: The next problem that people come across is when the roof has a leak. Your roof should be there to block out any debris and other weather related elements from getting in your house. The water from snow or rain should be able to make its way off the roof and into the gutters. When there is roof damage you will notice a leak inside the house. The water can be dripping right on the carpet without you really even noticing. You will of course need to have your roof repaired but also your carpet cleaned from the water that has dripped on.
Faulty Appliances: Some of the pipes that is bringing water into your home is going to the appliances. There are several appliances that could have a leak such as the water heater, dishwasher. Ice maker, fridge and the washing machine. When they go out or are not installed properly the water can start to burst out and soak the floors that are within reach. This can be tile, wood and even your carpet. You want to shut off the water and get to cleaning right away.

Owning a cat can make life fun. They’re cute and provide us with hours of enjoyment, but they can damage our carpets. They can claw at it and have accidents on it. The clawing behavior is normal and not something they do to make you mad. Cat urine isn’t that different than the urine of other animals. The reason it smells so bad is that it usually goes unnoticed. The longer it sits, the more it will smell as the bacteria in the urine decomposes. It smells like ammonia and because cats also eliminate powerful hormones when they pee, it smells worse. The odor needs to be neutralized, otherwise they will do it again. You need to try to prevent these problems from happening before they start.

How to Protect Carpet from Cats

1. Have the right number of litter boxes to prevent cat urine stains on carpet. A rule of thumb for cats and litter boxes is to have one more litter box than the number of cats you have. If you have two cats, you need to have three litter boxes. If you have a cat that is using one spot of your carpet to pee, then place a litter box over that spot. This will save your carpets if they are territorial with their urination.
2. Use scratching posts to deter cats from damaging carpet. Cats aren’t scratching to annoy you, they’re satisfying a need. If you discover that your cat is using your carpet to sharpen their nails, you’ll know they like and you can take steps to prevent it. Make or purchase a carpeted cat tower that is in a wide enough space, so it will redirect your cat to it rather than your carpet. You need to remember that scratching is normal, you just need to give them an appropriate place to do it.
3. Play with your cats. Many cats will misbehave if they are bored or are angry with you. Play with your cat daily and make sure their litter boxes are clean. Keeping your cat entertained along with a clean place to go to the bathroom will make it less likely they will damage your carpets.
4. Use cat deterrents. Positive reinforcement is the best way to train your cat, but if they continue to scratch or go to the bathroom on your carpets, you may need to use deterrents. You can use a spray bottle with water to spray your cat when you see inappropriate behavior or a deterrent spray to keep them away from a certain area. You can also try to place tin foil over the areas they are damaging. They won’t like the sound it makes when they step on it.

Problems with Online Carpet Cleaning Recommendations

The first problem with online carpet cleaning searches is the lack of knowledge and training that many bloggers or self-proclaimed do it your experts have about carpet care. With so many different carpets on the market, carpet is complex and expensive. Carpet can be made from wool, artificial viscose, nylon, and more. Consulting a carpet care professional, like Carpet Care 2000, is your best bet for getting stains out effectively without damaging your carpet. If you do look for carpet cleaning tips online, ignore the following carpet cleaning tips.

Cleaning Carpet with Vinegar & Baking Soda is a Bad Idea

When you search online for natural cleaning solutions, vinegar frequently comes up as a cleaning solution. According to The Journal of Environmental Health, vinegar is one of the least effective solutions for removing dirt or soil when tested against other natural cleaning solutions. What’s even worse is that frequently online tips recommend mixing vinegar with baking soda or hydrogen peroxide. Mixing vinegar with baking soda creates a foamy paste that will then also need to be removed from carpet. Hydrogen peroxide and vinegar create an acid that is toxic and can cause skin irritation or respiratory problems.

Ammonia Can Damage Wool Carpets

Ammonia is a toxic liquid that can be harmful to your carpet, pets, and children. Large amounts of ammonia used in an unventilated room will create chemical fumes that could cause hard to your pets and children. Wool and some synthetic materials will be damaged by the use of ammonia.

Hairspray Can Stain Carpet

Ironically, googling hairspray and carpet will you lead to articles that suggest using hairspray to get rid of carpet stains and how to remove hairspray stains from your carpet. Consequently it doesn’t seem wise to use hairspray, which stains your carpet, to remove other stains on your carpet. Hairspray contains different chemicals and ingredients that could cause permanent damage to your carpet.

Dish Soap Attracts More Dirt on Carpet

Dish soap is an excellent cleaning agent. It is known to remove grease, grime, and food from your dishes. Do it yourself tips also recommend using dish soap to remove stains from your clothes as well. While dish soap works extremely well on those surfaces, it is safe only on surfaces that can then be cleansed of the dish soap.

Indoor allergies plague more than 40 million Americans. 25 million Americans struggle with asthma. Unfortunately they frequently suffer within the walls of their own homes. For many years it has been speculated that in order to keep your allergy and asthma symptoms under control in your house you need to remove all carpet from your home. Due to the advancement in carpet cleaning technology and equipment, that is a false belief. Properly and effectively cleaning the carpet in your home can help your loved ones decrease their health problems relating to indoor allergies.

Dust Mite Allergy Treatment

One of the most frequent indoor allergies is a dust allergy. Dust allergies can be triggered by pets, cockroaches, pollen, mold and dust mites. Dust mites are microscopic organisms that feed off of house dust and moisture in the air. People who suffer with dust mite allergies find that they struggle the most with them in their very own homes. Vacuuming, sweeping, and dusting stir up dust mites. After performing these simple household chores their symptoms will frequently worsen. Dust allergy symptoms include sneezing; runny or stuffy nose; red, itchy or teary eyes, wheezing, coughing, tightness in the chest and shortness of breath; and itching.

Steam Cleaning Removes Dust Mites

When allergy symptoms become too much to bear, many people will go visit an allergist. An allergist can help identify what you are allergic to, give shots, and prescribe medications. Many doctors also recommend changes to your home. One of the changes they frequently recommend is getting rid of the dust in your house as much as possible. One of the best ways to do that is by having your carpets steam cleaned every three months.
Why would they recommend steam cleaning instead of cleaning your carpets with chemicals? When chemicals are used on your carpet you may have an allergic reaction to the chemicals that they used. If you are already suffering from allergies, this may not be worth risking whether or not the chemicals will trigger you into an allergic reaction or asthmatic attack.

Why is Steam Carpet Cleaning the Best Method?

Why do we here at Carpet Care 2000 recommend steam cleaning? Vacuuming and dry carpet cleaning only clean the surface of your carpet. They do make your carpet look clean, but they don’t get to the hard to reach dirt that has become embedded in your carpet fibers. Plus steam cleaning is the carpet cleaning method that is recommended by most carpet manufacturers for the longevity of your carpet. The chemicals used with other carpet cleaning methods can break down the natural protective layers of your carpet making it more vulnerable to general wear and tear. In addition to all of those amazing reasons, steam cleaning can provide extra relief for allergy sufferers.
