How to remove red juice stain from carpet

Many of us have been faced with this dilemma. Whether it’s a spill from Gatorade, Kook-Aid, or another brand, red juice stains are often though to be permanent. We have good news for you though- they’re not! We have a very effective process for getting red juice stains out. In fact, we have never encountered one that we did this process on that wouldn’t come out!

In order to remove red juice stains in carpet, we have to do something different than our normal hot water extraction process. We use a product that actually alters the dye to make the red dye unstable, then we apply a damp towel and a hot iron. Checking about every 30 seconds, we watch as the red stain transfers into the towel and disappears from the carpet. It’s an amazing process to watch, and you can see our great results from a cleaning we did in Sammamish below.

How to get mildew out of outdoor cushions

Winter is over and summer is almost here! Many of us know that the Greater Seattle Area is beautiful this time of year, so we spend time outside barbecuing, playing yard games and hanging out with loved ones. But have you ever gone outside to find your patio furniture looks worse than you remember? Have you ever looked at the cushions and seen tiny little black spots everywhere? If so, that’s actually mildew that has accumulated from months of the Seattle rain!

So, how do you clean mildew spots out of furniture? This may come as a surprise to you, but most outdoor furniture is bleach-safe. The product we use for mold is not straight bleach, but it’s a product that is specifically designed to get mold and mildew off of wood and many other surfaces. You can go to the store to purchase a similar product, or even use household bleach (make sure to dilute according to the directions).

When cleaning outdoor furniture, extraction is very important, because all kinds of bacteria can grow in the wet climate throughout fall and winter. So if you have a way of cleaning yourself you can do that, or if you’d rather hire us so that you can just relax on your patio furniture after it gets cleaned, contact us here! We can help you if you are in Edmonds or the surrounding cities.

If you do the cleaning yourself, be sure to check your tag and/or call your manufacturer to check if it is safe to use bleach. And even if they say it is, test a small spot in an inconspicuous area to make sure it’s not going to make the color bleed before putting it all over your outdoor couch or chair. Get ready to enjoy outdoor meals and parties again!

How to deep clean grout lines in tile

Tile and grout cleaning is much more than just mopping. In fact, mopping essentially just pushes all the dirt from the tile into the grout lines. So in effect, it cleans off the tiles but makes the grout even more dirty than it already was. No wonder grout lines are always so much harder to deep clean than the tile!

So when cleaning grout at home, that’s why it’s so commonly thought to use a tooth brush. What else can you scrub the grout lines with that will fit inside the grout lines? There are some better tools out there that help you get off your hands and knees like this one though, because you can buy a wool pole to attach it to! Doing this with a strong, neutral pH cleaner like this one can be very effective, but it has to be done regularly. It’s also best practice to use absorbent microfiber pads to dry the surface after cleaning, rather than traditional mops that push the dirt back into the grout lines.

When we clean grout, we do a combination of a safe but heavy duty pre-treatment, aggressive scrubbing with a brush and then high pressure (1000 psi) washing with hot water (up to 220 degrees). This combination allows us to do highly effective tile and grout cleaning that cannot be achieved with home remedies. The above photo is a bathroom we cleaned last week in Lake Stevens and the client was thrilled! If you have questions about how to clean tile and grout, or would like to schedule a professional tile and grout cleaning in Lake Stevens, Edmonds, Seattle, or the surrounding area, contact us here!

Pet and Kid Safe Carpet Cleaning

In the old days, carpet cleaners used some very toxic and harmful chemicals because there weren’t “green” or “non-toxic” solutions that worked very well.

We use non-toxic chemicals that don’t leave any sticky or harmful residue behind.

In addition to wanting to keep our clients’ homes safe and healthy after carpet or upholstery cleaning, we care about our health as well! We are working hands on with our products every day and want to stay healthy while we clean carpet, upholstery and tile.

Cleaning dog stains off a couch

If you’re in the Greater Seattle area, chances are that you have pets of some kind. Many people have dogs here, so many people have couches that need to be cleaned. It’s about that simple!

We recently cleaned this couch for one our clients. Not did the dog pee on the couch, but there were just general spots from dog oils, coffee spills, food spots, and other various things on the couch. Fortunately, we have the upholstery cleaners made specifically for all of those things and made a huge difference! Check out the photo below to see what we can do when we clean upholstery!

What to do if spots don't come out of your carpet

Do you have spots in your carpet or upholstery that just won't come out? Maybe you have tried yourself, or maybe you have hired a company, and they still won't come out. Well, what do you do? Call us! We just cleaned carpet for a client in Mukilteo the other day who said she had hired two professional carpet cleaning companies and they couldn't get the spots out of her carpet. But when we removed the spots she was amazed!

Even if you've hired a carpet cleaner in the past, it might be worth having us stop by for a free inspection to see if we think we can get the spots out! Contact us for a free quote.

Area rug cleaning drop off and pick up service
