Winter is almost here in Castle Rock and as the best carpet cleaners, we know that Colorado Snow doesn’t mean in what it means in a lot of the rest of the country. Our winters are usually pretty tough and the good thing about that is that it makes winter a necessary time to clean your carpets. If you can’t wait for warmer weather so that you can get the smelly, stuffy air out of your home and get it ready for some cleaning, here are some TLC Carpet Care tips for deodorizing your Castle Rock home:
✓ Get Rid Of The Source Of Bacteria
The source of most lingering, nasty odors in your Castle Rock home is in your kitchen. If your home smells a little bad but you’re not sure where the smell is coming from, empty all of your trash cans and garbage disposal first. If you have children, check their rooms for food wrappers. When if you find the source clean it, it may take a while for the room or house to smell better. It’s a good idea to clean kitchen pantry periodically and even sprinkling the bottom with baking soda before you put a plastic trash bag in it.
✓ Vacuum A Lot
A quality vacuum cleaner, especially one with a HEPA filter is the key in keeping your home smelling good. You must vacuum twice a week especially if you have small children or pets. Humans and animals spread bacteria, body oils and hair that is hidden in your carpets. Bacteria survives on this food source poop all over your carpeting, which is what can cause the smells in your carpeting. In addition to weekly vacuuming, you must also have your carpets steam-cleaned at least once a year by TLC Carpet Care in Castle Rock Co, to make sure they smell good and that they’re sanitized.
✓ Open The Windows
Winter in Colorado can have warm days and is a great time to fling open the windows and let the breezes flow through your home. Research has shown that indoor air quality is significantly worse than outdoor air quality so make sure you have lots of fresh air circulating this winter.
✓ Carpet Cleaning For Freshness
Nothing can make a home smell fresher than the smell of a clean carpet. There are many natural scents on the market that employ citrus oils to clean non-porous surfaces and make the whole house smell great. A mild solution of a cleaner with lemon or orange extracts can be used to clean counter tops and floors and bathrooms.
✓ Remove Pet Urine
If you have pets who have accidents in your home, make sure you clean them up as soon as possible. Use as much vinegar and water as possible but not so much that you saturate your carpet. A little vinegar and water will break down the crystals in the urine. Once the area is dry, vacuum it thoroughly.
