DID YOU KNOW that man’s best friend can actually become your worst nightmare?

That’s right. He’s cuddly, cute and you love him, but sometimes he has a problem with “accidents” and pretty soon, you start to notice the… ummm… odiferous situation in your Bay Area home.

Besides the obvious occasional accident from Fido, his hair can also be an issue. Once he shakes a bit off, it goes into the carpet and furniture and sticks to it all and it can be quite a problem. This may not be noticeable at first if Fido has short hair, but you’ll notice it building up over time.

Then you have the issue of “I want in. I want out. I want in.” You know it… Fido is always on the move and the constant going outside and then back inside brings in all kinds of dirt.

What can you do about all this?

1. Clean messes up quickly. Once you discover an “accident,” it’s important to grab a few paper towels and blot up the mess before it sinks down into the padding of the carpet. A good enzyme deodorizer like you might get from the vet helps with lingering odors, but of course it’s best to have a professional carpet cleaner near you come over to handle these odor challenges. They are best equipped to tackle the accidents that have seeped deeper than the first layer.

2. Brush your dog frequently. A hairy situation can be tamed by brushing your dog often. Loose hair that’s about to go into the carpet and furniture can be easily pulled from Fido with a good grooming brush. And guess what? He probably likes the attention!

3. Use mats. While you may not have the time to wipe off Fido’s muddy paws each time he wants back inside, it is a good idea to place mats inside and outside the door. When Fido want’s back inside, let him beg a little bit on the outside mat because some of that dirt is definitely going to come off.

Do all of this and man’s best friend is going to be a dream to live with, not a nightmare!

Taking care of cleaning chores around the house is something Bay Area homeowners have engaged in since houses were invented. Not much thought goes into it other than it just needs done. Diablo Carpet and Floor Restoration is here to make it easy for you.

However, some specialized tasks, such as removing a spot from a carpet, getting rid of an irritating pet odor from the family dog or trying to find the best cleaning solution for the toughest jobs can actually end up causing more harm than good.

Spot removal

When we find a spot on the carpet, there are two things people tend to do. The first is to put way too much cleaning solution on the spot, saturating it and even getting the padding wet. This just spreads the spot and causes trouble in the future. The second is we tend to scrub way too long and way too hard. This can fray the fibers and you can’t fix that. So when you get a spot, put some solution on a white towel and blot. Never scrub or rub. This is very important. Should the problem persist, contact your Bay Area carpet cleaning specialists at Diablo Carpet and Floor Restoration.

Odor removal

The biggest question when Fido or Fluffy does their thing on the carpet is “How do I get it out?” That’s not always easy unless you get to it right away. Urine will penetrate into the carpet, the padding and even the subfloor, and when it dries, over time it becomes sticky and smelly.

People will sometimes put powdered carpet deodorizers on those spots, which only gums up the carpet and creates a residue very difficult to remove. Like with spot removal, blotting the area quickly is usually the best remedy for the do-it-yourself types. If you are unsure or the issue continues, contact the Bay Area pet stain and pet odor specialists at Diablo Carpet and Floor Restoration.

Using Products

When one product works well and you find another one works well, too, the tendency is to mix them. Remember, never mix ammonia and bleach. Both are effective products on their own, but mixed together, they become deadly. Other products on your shelf could, if mixed together, create toxic fumes that can cause harm to your family. Always follow directions.

How can you avoid all these problems and challenges? It’s simple: Call Diablo Carpet and Floor Restoration today at 925.833.0408. We’ll be right over to save the day.

Spring is the season of new and fresh starts. It is often looked upon as a time to declutter and cleanse your house of all the grub. However, this process can become overwhelming and subject to eternal procrastination. Thus, Diablo Carpet and Floor Restoration has simplified it into a few steps to make the process fun and less daunting.

Organizing the Project

If we sit down and write down every cleaning task we’d like to do, we would have the list that will never die. Instead, we always recommend the rule of 3. This means that you do not need to do everything but stick to the most important. Thus, start with creating a to do list and put the top three items that need to be done in the house. Subsequently, put a list of the top three items in each room in the house beyond those initial ones. A key provision to all of this is that each of these items must be very specific. Do not simply put “Clean the Bedroom”. Specify things like “Organize the Closet” or “Go through all the Toys”. Once you have your detailed list, you should then split up the list among all family members and set two to three weekends to get the job done.

Plan Ahead

While you will do each set of tasks over a period of time, it is important to plan ahead for each weekend of activities. Beyond having the list of what you have to complete this Spring, take the time to break down the tasks needed to do the specific cleaning. For instance, if one of the items is to get the carpets professionally cleaned, then you need to research and contact companies in advance so they come on the day you are prepared to accept them and allow them to clean everything. Along the same thought process, if one of the cleaning tasks is to move all your boxes from one room to the garage, you should plan to do this before having professional carpet cleaning. Otherwise, you’ve wasted the professional carpet cleaning of your Bay Area home.

Make it Fun

Spring cleaning can be very taxing and often emotional, especially for the little kids. The children rarely want to give up their long held toys, even if they haven’t been touched in years. Thus, you can make a game out of the whole affair. For instance, you can give them incentive by letting them keep any monies they receive for them. Alternatively, you could show them how those items could benefit those who are less fortunate. Another option could be to create a scavenger hunt game out of the decluttering so the kids have fun and forget about the impact the loss is having on them.

Thus, contact your carpet cleaning specialist today at Diablo Carpet and Floor Restoration at 925-833-0408 to make your spring cleaning a breeze.

Waterproof Flooring (Next Generation)

For years Bay Area homeowners have struggled through the challenges of keeping their flooring new and beautiful. They’ve been told to vacuum or mop it regularly. In addition, some floorings have been required to be sealed every year or two. Finally, professional carpet cleaning and hardwood cleaning is also recommended on an annual or more frequent basis. However, despite all of this, the unknown spill or pet stain has always loomed as a potential added expense or unknown factor that could ruin the flooring.

Things are changing. In the past six months, many major manufacturers have come out with new waterproof flooring. While this doesn’t take the odor away and is not full proof for everything, it does add a layer of protection which can keep the unexpected away. The flooring has taken on several forms.

Waterproof Carpeting

A few months ago, Shaw Floors, a leading manufacturer, came out with “Life Guard”. This carpeting has waterproof backing and can withstand up to 25,000 pounds of water. A kid’s accident will not penetrate this very easily. Additionally, pet accidents are better protected, although the bacterial infections have to be considered. Thus, the carpet is protecting you from many of life’s spills and accidents. This can help alleviate some of the worry and leave you with just your usual professional carpet cleaning needs.

Waterproof Hardwood Flooring

Carpet is not the only type of flooring getting a fresh approach. Shaw and other manufacturers are also coming out with waterproof hardwood flooring. These types of flooring usually involve a waterproof core. This keeps the liquid from seeping beyond the first layer of flooring. As a result and similar to the carpet, kids and pet stains become less prominent and the unexpected no longer needs to worry a Bay Area homeowner.

Styling Included

A big concern homeowners may have is how stylish is this flooring. The answer is that it’s very nice. However, this is a relatively new product so it doesn’t have the vast diversity of product lines. As a result, it will take some time for the amount of options grows to a reasonable level.

Whether you have this latest style or maintain the traditional flooring, contact your hardwood and carpet cleaning specialists today at Diablo Carpet and Floor Restoration at 925-833-0408 to help keep your flooring beautiful.
