Is your rug Clean or dirty ?

I would firstly look at the rug, is there darkness in traffic areas? Are there any spills? Is there a wear mark appearing? 

A test for you!

The best way to keep a rug clean is to keep it from getting dirty in the first place. Removing outdoor shoes when entering the house (as people do in most rug-weaving countries) is a good idea if this accords with your lifestyle. Bare-foot or sock-foot traffic is much gentler to a rug than a hard outdoor-shoe sole (or spike heel), and leaving your outdoor shoes at the entrance to the house tracks in much less dirt.
Have your rug cleaned only when it really needs it. For rugs in some areas this will mean a yearly cleaning. Rugs in other areas can go several years and more without needing professional cleaning.
To judge how dirty a rug is, try one of these methods:
  1. Pick up a corner of the rug and while holding it, kick the back of the rug sharply. If a cloud of dirt flies out of the pile, the rug is dirty and needs cleaning. NOTE: some dust and wool fibers are normal!
  2. Kneel down on the rug and rub the pile vigorously with your hand in a short arc for 5 to 10 seconds. Look at your fingers and palm: if your hand is dirty, the rug needs cleaning.
  3. With the pile facing UP fold part of the rug back upon itself so that the pile opens along a line of knots. Look down into the base of the pile at the foundation of the rug. If the warp and weft look dirty, there is dirt deep in the pile where a home vacuum cleaner cannot reach it. The rug needs cleaning.

Cleaning your lounge suite or couch will save you money $$$$$$

Able Carpet Care has been cleaning lounge suites, dining chairs, couches and all other upholstery for over 23 years. Your precious fabrics can be rejuvenated call micahel on 9562-7565 to have your fabric professionally cleaned and deodorised - Lovely and fresh.  

Couch cleaning tips

First, look at the manufacturer’s label to identify the fabric content. (If necessary, ask your retailer or check with the manufacturer). If the fabric is a natural/synthetic blend, however, use caution and test a small, hidden patch first. If the upholstery is more than 50% cotton, professional cleaning may be your best bet if the stain is large, dark or in a very noticeable area.
The easiest upholstery stains to clean are those that are treated while they are still fresh. The hardest to clean are grease and oil. Any very large stain may be best left to a professional

Curtain Cleaning - Spring clean

How to Clean, Wash and Dry Curtains

Curtains are an elegant addition to homes but are often neglected.
They look so lovely when you first put them up but you really don't realize how much dust and dirt they collect until, years later, you whisk them open to let the sun in and a cloud of dust circles the air. Now you are faced with two decisions: wash or replace.
These days, draperies are inexpensive, and people change home decor themes often. When the curtains begin to look dingy, they simply buy new ones – usually as an excuse to redecorate.
While we’d never discourage redecorating, there are plenty of reasons to clean your curtains more often than you do now.
Curtains are usually filthy, and with good reason. They are the barrier between outside and inside.
  • When your windows are open, the curtains absorb moisture and attract dirt from the outside.
  • When your windows are closed, there are cracks and drafts. If air can get through, so can tiny dirt particles.
  • Draperies are also the places where dust and dirt from ceiling fans and air vents settle.
  • Even normal dusting and vacuuming causes dust and debris to circulate further into the air. A number of those particles will settle onto your curtains.
When you take all of this into consideration, you can see why it’s so important to clean your curtains on a regular basis! Call Able Carpet Care to professionally clean your curtains on 9562-7565 

General Dusting: Keeping ahead of Dirt and Grime

No matter how dirty and dusty your curtains get, it would be way too much work to wash them or have them cleaned every week. It would also ruin your drapes.
You can, however, get a lot of the dirt and dust off the surface of your curtains by dusting or vacuuming them every week as part of your general household cleaning. You can use a feather duster, static duster, dusting cloths, a damp cloth, or a dusting attachment that fits onto your vacuum cleaner.
Whichever method you choose, there are a few tips to remember:
  • Start at the top of your curtains and work your way down so the dust falls onto parts you haven’t dusted yet.
  • Concentrate on dusting hems and folds as most of the dust accumulates in those areas.
  • If you use a damp cloth, make sure you dust or vacuum the curtains firstto avoid smearing in dirt.
  • It’s best not to use a damp cloth on lightly colored curtains.
  • It’s easier to leave your curtains hanging when you dust them. Consider getting a more secure curtain rod if you aren’t able to hold the curtains taught to vacuum or dust them.
  • Be sure to dust or vacuum both sides of your curtains. Dust and debris collects on the sides facing windows as well, and it can fall onto your floor, cause odor, or cause particles to become airborne allergens.

Care of Old Carpets
  • Keep carpets clean and dry. Regular vacuuming can keep your carpet relatively dry and clean. If you're in the market for a new vacuum cleaner, you could get one with a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, which removes over 99% of dust on vacuumed surfaces. A central vacuum system is also highly effective.
  • When cleaning, use only nontoxic carpet cleaners and follow the manufacturer's directions carefully. If the product label includes a caution or toxic symbol, or if the odour is strong, choose another product. Allow carpet to dry fully after wet cleaning.
  • Think before shampooing your carpet. People who misread or fail to follow directions for diluting carpet shampoo may expose themselves and others to respiratory problems from soap dust. Soap dust will lead to coughing, dry throat, breathing difficulties, nasal congestion and headaches. Vacuuming will not remove the dust. Steam cleaning is the only effective means to remove the dust and solve the problem.
  • Clean spills promptly and thoroughly.
