Keep carpets and rugs clean

To maximize the life and appearance of your carpet, vacuum your carpets and rugs weekly with a bag vacuum.  Vacuuming removes the dirt and dust from the surface of your carpet, however, vacuuming along with routine professional cleaning keeps your carpets safe from pet dander and urine, particle pollution and everyday dirt and grime.

Don’t forget about your upholstered furniture

Many people remember to vacuum and dust around the house, but most people forget the importance of keeping your upholstery clean.  A significant amount of time every single day is spent on couches and chairs making them susceptible to dust, dirt and allergens.  Vacuuming furniture weekly is just as important and easy as vacuuming the carpets.

Regularly wipe down countertops

Countertops are not only where food is prepared, but it is also where dirt, bacteria and allergen particles build up.  It is essential to wipe down your countertops regularly to keep you and your loved ones healthy and safe.  When cleaning granite or tile countertops, use a mild cleaner that will refresh the sealer to keep your countertops in prime condition.

Use door mats or area rugs in entry ways and high traffic areas

Door mats and area rugs are great for trapping dirt and allergens before people enter your home.  Because of this, it is very important to clean them regularly to remove any allergens, bacteria, dirt and grime.  Carpets and rugs act as filters to capture and trap dirt, decreasing the amount of allergens spread through the home.  Vacuum your door mats or area rugs weekly along with your carpet and furniture.
