Carpet Restretching, a Cost Effective and Efficient Alternative to Replacement

November 8, 2011

Very soon pumpkins will be lining walkways, leaves will turn shades of brown, red, yellow, and then wreaths will begin to adorn the front doors of countless homes across America. The holiday season, like autumn’s nudge and winter’s push, will soon be upon us. While entertaining friends and family can be a wonderfully fulfilling time of year, it is also inevitably busy and stressful. A portion of the stress can be directly tied to presentation. Not only are hosts and hostesses showcasing their food, family, and hospitality, they are also opening their homes to the scrutiny of friends, family, and acquaintances alike. Thus those minor knicks on furniture and frayed carpet edges become glaring calls to attention, escalating anxiety and dampening holiday spirits.

What is a homeowner to do? Replacing your carpet may not only be out the question due to budgetary constraints, especially during the holiday season, but also not available within the allotted time frame. Besides, replacing flooring is a major household decision, cost, and time commitment.

A very practical alternative to getting your carpeted areas looking like new is restretching. It is not only economical but can also be easily fit into anyone’s busy schedule. Thus, when your carpeted areas begin to look bubbled, worn, or torn, call the professionals at Premium Carpet and Upholstery for a free estimate.

How Did that Happen? Soil Filtration Lines, those Black Marks on Otherwise Healthy Carpet

November 8, 2011

Let’s face it, black lines on anything are never attractive. Whether it is a stray printing mark on a perfectly structured portion of text, a mascara smudge under the eye after a long day, or your child’s attempt to measure his/her own height using a Sharpie and your family room wall, the resulting feeling of glaring imperfection and frustration is the same despite the variety of the circumstance.  Your carpet is no exception to this rule and since it is often the first thing that family members and guests see, it can be an even larger source of discomfort when random marks appear.

No matter how clean your carpet may be or how meticulous you are about its care, soil filtration lines can happen. Occurring more often in colder climates, these bands of soil are normally found along walls, under doors that have been kept closed for an extended period of time, and the skirting of furniture, to name just a few possible locations.  The problem is that this is not just dirt collecting near hard surfaces but rather a compilation of oily soil molecules that are extremely small, making them difficult to remove. To make matters worse, they have also become electrically charged, effectively bonding them to the carpet fibers. Thus, getting rid of these lines can be difficult to say the least due to their location and stubbornness of the molecules. Moreover, the longer home or business owners wait to address the issue, the more difficult it becomes to remove the soil since it continues to build-up.

Soil filtration lines can occur no matter the type of home, business, or facility; what matters is the indoor air quality and its construction. As air is heated, it rises, carrying with it and collecting pollutants. The warm air then seeks out cooler surfaces such as an outside wall or colder room. As it moves toward the cooler surfaces, it will push its way through (under doors) and “clean itself”. The carpet acts as a filter for this polluted air and the result is a build up these oily soils on your carpet.

Alas, what is a home or business owner to do? Keeping the furnace off during the cold winter months is not an option and neither is leaving unattractive, downright unpleasant looking marks on otherwise perfectly good, healthy carpeting. While removing the stains may be difficult, it can be achieved with professional products and an expert cleaning plan of action that includes a pretreatment. This is an aggressive soiling that warrants an equally aggressive cleaning procedure.

 

Let the well-trained experts at Premium conquer your soil filtration lines before winter! Remember, one key to insure the longevity and health of your carpeted surfaces is consistent, professional cleaning. Have the PremiumPROs come out today for a free estimate and start the upcoming fall season off right by not adding to your existing filtration line problem.

Cooler Weather Means Less Outdoor Activity

November 8, 2011

The changing color of the leaves and briskness of the mornings signals more than the change of the season. This also suggests the movement of bodies from outside to inside. Children will no longer be playing for hours in the cul-de-sac, down the street at the park, or in the backyard. Instead, most will have to entertain themselves within the confines of the home and your carpeted surfaces or on the area rugs strategically placed throughout the home.After school, students will find their comfortable chair or couch, have a snack, and think about doing homework.

Your upholstery will love them for it! With all of this increased traffic, it is clear to see why upkeep becomes more and more difficult as the seasons change. To ensure the best results and longevity for your carpeted surfaces, area rugs, and upholstery throughout the long fall and winter months, invest in your home and begin a regimen of cleaning that will truly benefit you and your family.

Upholstery Cleaning: Making Sure your Furniture Stays in Tip Top Shape

September 26, 2011

After work, play, or school most residents head straight for one comforting place – their couch. This piece of the home environment is not only used daily but by several family members and for a variety of uses. It is not just the place where home inhabitants sit to visit or watch television any longer, it has become the lounging site for children and teenagers playing video games and snacking, entire families eating meals, and often a pet’s personal domain. The upholstery may be manufactured to withstand these everyday uses but like other household structures, it is imperative that they be cleaned regularly to sustain their integrity and overall beauty. In order to do this and keep that favorite couch looking like a wonderful addition to your living room rather than a battered and soiled fixture, regular vacuuming as well as cleaning is necessary. Regular vacuuming can increase the longevity of your furnishing by up to 40% and regular maintenance is imperative to remove dirt and stains that will build up over time if not addressed, becoming nearly impossible to remove. Thus, let the Premium Pro expert help you maintain the beauty of your home furnishings by cleaning these everyday fixtures. Contact Premium Carpet Cleaning and Upholstery today at 970-482-2350 for an appointment and free estimate or visit us at:  www.premiumcarpetandupholstery.com.
