Cleaning Habits to Stop

window cleaning Jacksonville, FLWhen it comes to house cleaning, Jacksonville, FL residents have very high standards! Therefore, it may surprise you to learn that many of us – even those most comfortable with household chores – are probably doing some of our tasks incorrectly, or out of order. Here are some cleaning habits that you need to change.

All-Natural and Organic

We’ve all heard that it’s better for the environment if we use organic cleaners in place of chemicals. However, this doesn’t mean that just because something is all-natural that it’s ideal for cleaning, or for cleaning a specific item. Case in point, vinegar and lemon juice are both organic but they are also very acidic. To avoid ruining the finish on certain types of stone, keep lemon juice and vinegar away from the following: marble, travertine, limestone and onyx. Your cleaning products (natural or man-made) should be appropriately paired with your project.

5 Signs Your Upholstered Furniture Needs To Be Professionally Cleaned

Posted by Josh Kennedy

upholstery cleaning Jacksonville, FLEveryone loves the look and smell of a clean home, especially regarding furniture. Deciding when is the right time to clean you furnishings is a personal choice based on individual preferences. Certain types of furniture really absorb odor and pet dander, even if it's not covered in dog hair. Allergens can also collect and irritate certain individuals if upholstery is not properly maintained in a routine manner. Below is a list of five signs that you should get your upholstery cleaning done by a professional service in Jacksonville, Florida.

Fuzzy Furniture                               

Generally speaking, if you own a dog or two and your armchair has become as furry as a grizzly bear, you're probably overdue for a cleaning. Vacuums don't easily strip off pet hair, especially regarding loose dog hair. A little is always left behind each time you try to clean your furniture. Also, since dogs that shed commonly lie on furniture, removing the hair only leaves the furniture with a dirty appearance.  

Lint brushes are great for peeling off lint and pet hair, but, as with a vacuum, the brush won't nab everything. Even if you used a combination of both a vacuum and a lint brush, there will still be some surviving pet hair (and of course all of the dirt and bacteria you won't be able to see), which is why you should invest in a professional upholstery cleaning service.

What Not to Do When Treating Upholstered Furniture Stains

upholstery_cleaningLast night’s dinner party was a great success, but now it’s time for upholstery cleaning in Jacksonville, FL. The superb spaghetti sauce has stained the upholstery, along with the vintage burgundy wine on the carpet. Many stain removers use a combination of chemical strategies to either remove the stains entirely or camouflage them. There isn’t one single method to remove stains, but they can be made worse. Much worse. The following are eleven stain removal blunders to avoid when it comes to upholstered furniture cleaning in Jacksonville, FL unless you plan on replacing your upholstery entirely.

1.  Postponing                         

Acting quickly to remove a stain can prevent it from being absorbed by the upholstery fibers or seeping through to the underlying padding. Stains are more difficult to remove if they are allowed to dry and set. If possible, act quickly when there is a spill; the quicker the reaction time, the greater the chance of removing the stain completely.

Household Cleaning Products

bigstock-A-Bucket-with-Cleaning-Supplie-26419163 Many of the modern-day household cleaning products in the market today are toxic compounds that not only harm the environment, but also bring about all manner of health problems by aggravating diseases such as allergies, bronchitis, sinusitis, asthma and many more. The US National Center for Health Statistics estimates that 1/3 of the American population suffers from the health conditions mentioned above; it’s therefore absolutely imperative that we find healthier alternatives for our home-cleaning compounds.

Luckily for us, our increased consciousness of how we interact with our environment and the highly popular Green Movement have led to the development of safer cleaning products that do not damage our environment or cause health complications.
