Keeping a well-kept home isn’t difficult if you call in the right professionals!

How to Get Blood Out of Your Carpets

ALL STAR BLOG How to Get Blood Out of Your Carpets Everyone once in awhile someone falls, cuts themselves or gets a scrape. Sometimes you’re even left with a little souvenir on your rug. Blood stains can be some of the toughest stains to remove from a carpet. It’s easier to take it out fresh than when it’s been sitting in your upholstery for days. Even though it’s always best to call a professional like All Star Chem-Dry carpet cleaning professionals, here are a few tips and tricks that will make your carpet look new! For The Stain You Couldn’t Stop Pets and children are more likely to be the instigators when it comes to blood stains. Dogs unknowingly will bring in dust, dirt and blood all over their fur. Children love to play and sometimes get injured while doing all sorts of fun activities. To get rid of the stain, start by spot treating it so you can minimize the damage on your carpets until you can call a professional. Follow These 3 Quick Steps! Scrape any blood not soaked into your carpet and then apply cold water to the stained section. It’s important to only use cold water. Luke-warm water will make the stain worse. After the cold water has soaked into your carpet wait patiently. This will loosen up the dried blood. Use hydrogen peroxide to create a bubbling effect. Soak a sponge with hydrogen peroxide and dab it on the stained section of your carpet. Leave it to sit for a few minutes and then soak up all the liquids with a dry rag. If the hydrogen peroxide doesn’t take out the dried blood, spray the soiled section with liquid laundry detergent. Massage the detergent into the stain with your finger. After, apply cold water to the area and soak up the liquids with a dry rag. If these tips still haven’t removed your stain give All Star Chem-Dry carpet cleaning professionals a call. The technicians are knowledgable and will assess your carpet, treat it and apply a protectant solution to keep it...

Stops Stains Now

ALL STAR BLOG Stops Stains Now A home is a place where you can sit back and relax, where you can enjoy your evening inside. Since our homes mean so much to us, keeping them in pristine shape is a must. This means every door, floor, couch, and carpet. Yeah, everyone does the weekly clean but what about the maintenance? How much time do you spend maintaining your oasis? Often families will wait after a glass of red wine has spilled on their carpet and clean it up with some oxy or detergent. Sometimes it isn’t the cabernet though, it’s a meatball dipped in Grandma’s special spaghetti sauce, or a young child’s cleat’s from soccer practice filled with dirt. Be proactive, prevent stains before they happen. Keep reading to stop stains right in their tracks! Be a Canadian, Leave Your Shoes Right at the Door! Whether you were out on the deck, hanging out in the garage, sitting on the balcony, or just bought a brand new pair of shoes from Payless – enforce a no shoes policy in your home. Mud, dirt and grime will snuggle their way into your carpets if you don’t take precaution and they’ll bring bacteria too! When you keep your shoes at the gate, you guard your home from unwanted allergens and bacteria. This helps your home remain clean and improves your family’s well-being. Vacuum More for a Dirt Free Home Sometimes between professional cleanings, dirt can get stuck in your fabrics. Just a little bit of time can turn this dirt into a stain and becomes expensive to remove. Vacuuming often can help get rid of these stubborn marks. A vacuum a day, helps keep the bugs away! Rid your home of hair, dirt and allergens that can affect your family’s health! You’ll save big bucks in the long run by getting less professional cleanings. Be Proactive! Now that you know how stains sneak their way into your carpets and upholstery, defend your home before they happen. Maybe you want to keep your great aunt’s persian rug or your grandmother’s couch without the plastic couch cover in pristine condition? Preserve your family heirlooms by applying a high quality protectant! Lots of carpets are sprayed with a mild carpet protectant on them and sold to homeowners. The spray doesn’t last that long, so upkeep is needed. Reduce permanent stains and increase the lifetime of your carpet by getting protecting re-applied every 6 months. Contact All Star Chem Dry carpet cleaning professionals to learn more about their line of carpet and upholstery protectant products. Remember to stop stains in their tracks, leave shoes at the door, vacuum often and apply a protectant every 6 months. This way you can beat stains to the...

Top Cleaning Applications
of Vinegar

ALL STAR BLOG Cleaning Tips For A Healthier Home In Spring (Spring Cleaning Hotspots To Ensure a Healthier Home) Vinegar has long been praised for its stain removal properties. It can be applied to a variety of surfaces and items and the results can be extraordinary. Here is a list of the common alternative uses of household vinegar: Adhesive residue removal: After you have removed the price label or any other kind of sticker from a newly purchased item, you are nearly always left with adhesive residue that can be quite difficult to get rid of. Instead of spending money on potentially toxic products, all you have to do is use vinegar. Just apply it on the surface and wipe with a cloth after 15 minutes, and the residue will easily wipe away. Naturally refreshing fabrics Vinegar shares the same odor-removing chemical qualities with typical fabric refreshers, so no need to buy products that may trigger or other kinds of undesirable symptoms. Just add one part vinegar to three parts of water, mix well, and then spray. You may also add lemon or other juice to improve the odor. Lint eradication Vinegar is also ideal for removing lint from clothes. On top of that, most pieces of cloth become softer and static is also considerably reduced by use of vinegar on a regular basis. Microwave cleaning Cleaning your microwave is made a lot easier by means of a glass of vinegar. Just place the glass in the microwave and set it at full power for up to six minutes. During this time the steam produced from the vinegar will liquidate any solid food splatter which you can then easily wipe out. Coffee machine cleaning In order to clean the inside of your coffee machine all you need to do is run through vinegar instead of water for one cycle. Then, repeat three times using plain water to make sure no vinegar is left over. Kitchen drain cleaning Food residue usually accumulates over time in the kitchen drain tubes. You should take immediate action as soon as you notice a slight odor coming from the drain, otherwise you may have to call for a plumber. It is rather simple: pour baking soda in the drain tube, then pour vinegar. These two substances will chemically react, creating bubbles that will remove odours and spurt food particles up in the sink. Removing salt from boots Those white stains that appear on your boots during wintertime are actually caused by the salt on the sidewalk. As with any other fabric that bears such stains (e.g. coats, doormats), a simple rag soaked in vinegar will do. So vinegar is indeed a low cost, effective and all-natural cleaning agent. However, should you need professional stain removal, such as in the case of a valuable carpet, we recommend contacting a carpet cleaning company such as Chem-Dry in order to ensure the best results. Contact Us As your leading professional carpet cleaning company, we vow to grant you with the cleaning of your dreams! Contact us, or give us a call at 416-916-0550...
