With Upholstery Cleaning, Cherry Hill Homes Save Money

Allbrite0404It might seem counter intuitive that hiring a professional upholstery cleaning service would be the most cost-effective way to deal with dirt and grime on your favorite pieces of furniture, but it’s important to realize that there are several advantages to calling in the pros instead of taking on problem fabrics on your own.

When they think about upholstery cleaning, Mount Laurel homeowners often feel they can tackle the small problems themselves — a stain in a favorite chair, for example, or a dingier-than-usual cast to their draperies. But more often than not, home kits for these problems can cost nearly as much as having a professional cleaning service come into your home to do the job — and, in the long run, are far less likely to address the problem.

Home upholstery cleaning kits tend to, of necessity, focus on cleaning dirt and grime from the surface of the fabric itself, rather than any deep-down ground-in soil that might be present. The reason for this is that the typical homeowner isn’t expected to have the steam equipment and high-pressure extraction devices standard in most professional upholstery cleaners’ “toolbelt” — and, without that equipment, there’s zero chance that the clean you see will be thorough.

Cleaning only the surface means that not only is the stain still “in there,” it’s going to be causing problems such as premature wear and failure of the fabric itself — a clean you can see is one thing, but one that you know goes deep inside will help ensure your favorite chairs will be around for years to come.

Furniture Cleaning: Medford Homeowners Ensure The Longevity Of Their Assets

ALLBRITE1204Whether you’ve just moved into your first apartment or have settled into what you hope will be your last house, the furniture you’ve chosen for your home isn’t just there for show or comfort — it reflects the sort of person you’ve become over your lifetime. We understand that emotional tie to furniture can run deep — and that’s why we recommend you take care of that furniture by getting it professionally cleaned.

You don’t buy furniture expecting it to fall apart quickly, but if you don’t take care of it, it won’t be around as long as you’d like. Ground-in dirt can damage upholstery the same way it wears on fibers in carpet, gradually but inexorably making the fabric weaker and weaker until it’s likely to tear from even the slightest stress. The biggest benefit of upholstery cleaning Medford homeowners can realize is the extension of the life of that fabric — meaning the furniture can provide you with comfort and function for years longer.

There’s only so much surface cleanings and home vacuum cleaners can accomplish; our highly-trained and experienced upholstery cleaners bring state-of-the-art equipment to bear on ground-in grime and grease, bringing your furniture back to near-new condition and making your entire home feel — and smell — cleaner. There’s nothing quite like a clean house, and professional furniture cleaning can amplify that effect and bring it to every room in your home — and every seat a guest might choose to take.

If you’d like to find out why we’ve become the professional furniture cleaning experts Medford homeowners recommend most to their friends and family, please contact us today. We look forward to hearing from you and finding ways to help you protect your furniture well into the future!

Tile and Grout Cleaning: Like-New Results

ALLBRITE0904Whether you’ve got tile installed in a kitchen, bathroom, or anywhere on the floor of your home, you know by now that it’s a durable choice and has many advantages. One of the disadvantages, as you’ve almost certainly also discovered, is that light-colored grout that looks fantastic the day it was installed has a tendency to attract stains and dark spots — and that taking on the task of tile and grout cleaning in your home is a daunting proposition. If you’ve spent a few hours on your hands and knees with a toothbrush scrubbing away at grimy-looking grout, trying increasingly toxic hardware-store cleaning brews in an effort to get that white back, you may have begun to believe the only way to restore that bright white grout finish is to completely replace the tile.

The good news is, our professional tile and grout cleaning service gets you off your knees and takes care of that drab, graying look by cleaning in ways you never thought possible. After a deep-cleansing high-pressure hot water treatment, our careful and considerate staff begin to draw all the suspended dirt and soil particles back out of the tile and grout, leaving behind grout that’s as bright as the day you put it in. After we use professional-strength equipment to thoroughly remove all the water, our proprietary grout sealing compound it laid down, to help protect the newly-cleaned areas from even the harshest of staining agents. Once that compound dries, we gently buff out the affected area and thoroughly inspect our coverage — and if we need to do it again to endure every inch is thoroughly protected, we’ll keep going until the job is perfect and you get to enjoy a floor just like new!

So don’t replace your tile — contact us for a professional tile and grout cleaning today!

Protecting Your Investment with Upholstery Cleaning

ALLBRITE0903When you buy furniture like chairs or a couch, you expect them to last. But just like your carpet, your upholstery can be cheated out of years of its life when neglected. That’s why the first step in protecting your furniture should be investing in regular professional furniture cleaning — to extend the life of your furniture, and help prevent the long-term damage caused by not cleaning.

Look around your home — your furniture probably represents the biggest single outlay of funds involved in turning a house into a home. Choosing a professional upholstery cleaning company to take care of your furniture cleaning needs is an important part of caring for your investment, making it last longer. Much like carpet, the upholstery on furniture collects dirt and grime deep inside the fibers of the fabric involved, working its way into every crack and every crevice — and gradually, cumulatively causing more and more wear on those fibers, until a tear or other damage is almost guaranteed.

Removing that ground-in dirt and grime doesn’t just make furniture look and smell better — which of course it does. More importantly, it extends the life of that furniture, and allows homeowners to enjoy their investment longer. For your furniture to look its best year after year, there’s nothing as effective as deep furniture cleaning, performed by the same company you trust to maintain the look, feel and durability of your carpets. Let our highly-skilled and highly-experienced upholstery cleaning staff tackle everything from broad cleaning of dingy couches to stubborn stains on armchairs, knowing you’ve put your furniture investment into the hands of seasoned professionals.

Showing Off Your Home? Carpet Cleaning Is Just the Beginning

Lazy DogIf you’re getting ready to showcase your home to new people — whether you’re preparing the home for a real estate sales showing, offering the space as a rental, hosting the biggest party of the year or just preparing for the first visit from the in-laws — you need to put your best foot forward. And perhaps you’ve taken the usual steps already; you’ve picked up the clutter, you’ve run the vacuum around the house, you’ve scrubbed a few sinks and toilets and you’ve mowed the front lawn.

Furniture Cleaning Wraps Up a Clean Home

FurnitureCleaningOK, so you let the cat get up on the sofa from time to time; and sometimes the dog… when he’s wet. The kids drop a few crumbs here and there, spill the odd soda or two; and the last time you had company, there was a pretty big accident with the food…

Your furniture takes a lot of abuse; fortunately, we offer a furniture cleaning service that shows your appreciation and protects your investment at the same time! Our upholstery and furniture cleaning specialists use a state-of-the-art hot water extraction cleaning process that penetrates deep into fabric, then gets pulled back out — leaving behind a deep-down clean that you’d be hard pressed to duplicate.

Furniture, especially in high traffic areas of your home like your living room, kitchen or kids’ rooms, will gradually start to look and feel dingy, no matter how many times you dust and vacuum. Dirt and grime can compound the issues of wear over the years, prematurely making your furniture look old. The ground-in dirt also weakens the fibers of the fabric, increasing the likelihood of rips and tears no matter how careful you might be.

After your floors, the next step for a clean, beautiful home is our comprehensive furniture cleaning service. Rather than cart your chairs and sofas somewhere else to be cleaned — or lug around heavy and much less effective in-home rental furniture cleaning devices — we recommend thorough furniture cleaning as part of a periodic carpet cleaning.

The furniture in a home reflects the people who live there; make sure the first impression you give visitors is a clean, bright and fresh one! For information about furniture cleaning, carpet cleaning or any of the cleaning services we provide, please contact us today!

Do I Need Professional Upholstery Cleaning?

upholstery-cleaning-pictureIf you’re considering whether or not you need professional help with some upholstery cleaning on some of your dirty furniture, it’s important to consider that while there are lots of messes you can take care of on your own, there’s definitely a clear line where it’s time to call in the upholstery cleaning experts.

Perhaps the single biggest reason you should consider having professionals handle your upholstery cleaning needs is time. While there are many home solutions to upholstery cleaning, and many sorts of furniture fabric dirt and stains that can easily be addressed with store-bought products, they will take time from your schedule if you plan on using them. A significant advantage of professional upholstery cleaning companies is that they can take care of your furniture while you’re doing something else.

Another issue to consider with regard to home upholstery cleaning products is that using them will typically void any warranty you might have on your furniture. It’s worth checking with the manufacturer (or whoever sold you the furniture) to make sure, but often in order to maintain the validity of the warranty, certified and professional upholstery cleaning companies need to do the cleaning work.

Home care upholstery cleaning products also may seem like a bargain, until you find out how much you’ll really need to keep your furniture fabrics looking clean and new. Professional upholstery cleaning services buy their cleaning products, obviously, in bulk and at a significant discount as a result. Buying the same products piecemeal, which is how homeowners are forced to purchase them, may not yield the sort of upholstery cleaning savings you might hope for.

Finally, professional upholstery cleaning companies do exceptional work on big jobs. You might be less comfortable tackling a whole-couch cleaning than a small stain on one arm. For the larger messes, it’s probably best to use a professional upholstery cleaning service.

MAINTAINING YOUR HOME

maintain homeWe at AllBrite Floors are constantly striving to emphasize the importance of regular carpet cleaning, furniture cleaning, as well as tile and grout cleaning.

Besides improving the general feel and look of your home, these cleaning routines can extend the life of your flooring and furniture while improving the health of your family by preventing nasty bacteria from settling in.

We understand you’re not going to need residential carpet cleaning service every week, but there are still things you can be doing within your own home to keep all your flooring well maintained along with your furniture.

  • Using welcome mats – Welcome mats act as a barrier between your floor and the dirt people (and pets) unknowingly track into it. If they capture just a fraction of the bacteria that is carried in, they are well worth their (relatively low cost) investment.
  • Vacuuming and mopping regularly and well – Pay attention to those hard to reach areas. Use your vacuum extensions when carpet cleaning – and do not neglect your tiles. Ensuring that you are vacuuming on a weekly basis can extend the life of your carpets and tiles alike, and provide you with much cleaner floors and a much nicer home. Make sure to focus on the areas that are often overlooked; tile, grout, and furniture cleaning.
  • Semi regular commercial carpet cleaning – Have a professional come in once or twice a year, or rent a steam cleaner to ensure your carpets get the deep carpet cleaning they need. Make sure you get the necessary accessories to clean your furniture as well – the more regularly you keep up this habit, the less you will have to worry about the general wear and tear that can affect your home.
  • Don’t forget about the furniture! Too many people get so focused on the carpets, they leave out the hardwood. Or so focused on the tile and grout cleaning – they forget about the furniture. We sit on it, we stand on it, we use it every day – but how often do we indulge in furniture cleaning? Thorough furniture cleaning should be part of every home maintenance routine.

These are just a few tips to help get you started. The bottom line is not to leave anything out. Carpet, tile and grout as well as furniture cleaning should all be a part of a good home maintenance routine that will extend the life of your property and the value of your home.

carpet-steam-cleaningKeeping a clean floor seems like one of the easiest household chores to ignore. If it “looks fine”, we all too often assume that it is fine, this could not be further from the truth when dealing with carpets.

All floors are capable of housing dirt of any kind (if you don’t believe us, see our article on the bacteria that hide in your floors). Carpets however, are a special type of flooring that too often keep dirt locked in at its root layer, although the surface may appear to be fresh and clean.

This not only means bad news for your health, it may also mean bad news for your pocketbook. Why? Dirt badly affects carpet, it can not only make the floor look dirty but also wear it out faster. This is because for every little bit of carpet you have laid down, there can be a lot of dirt weighing into the amount of wear and tear that goes on along with the added pressure that regularly occurs over its surface.

The more wear and tear that occurs, the more often you will have to replace your carpeting, a costly and time consuming process.

How do you prevent this? With regular carpet cleaning. This can be as simple as vacuuming regularly, adding a mat to the front door, and insisting people remove their shoes… For extra measure, from time to time it also helps to have a thorough steam cleaning done, furniture cleaning, and having professionals come in to restore your existing carpet.

The carpet is the life of the room. When you try to sell a house, one of the first things people notice is how well taken care of the house looks – and the carpet plays a major part. Since most people do not want to replace their carpets entirely every five years, the best advice we can provide is to develop a carpet cleaning routine and stick to it – it will extend the life of your carpet.

Do yourself a favour and indulge in regular carpet cleaning maintenance, it will surely save you more money than it costs.
