Canister vacuums Canister vacuum cleaners normally include retractable cords.  Considering the fact that most cords are around 25 foot in length, this feature will prevent you from having to drag the cord around and  possibly damage furniture.  A push of a button or a slight tug on the cord will retract it into the canister of the vacuum.

 The nozzle can be one of two types, nozzle or  power nozzle.  To get your carpet as clean as  possible, it is recommended that you use the power nozzle, which will agitate the carpet and loosen  up the dirt for deeper cleaning. 

 Another feature worth looking for is a suction control switch, as this allows you to adjust the flow of air for cleaning delicate material such as upholstery and drapery. 

 When choosing your vacuum cleaner, you should always choose the one you like best.  The best vacuum for the job is the one you should choose, as things will work out much better that way.

Pets are undoubtedly cute and having them in the house can be a boost to the atmosphere, but no matter how hard you try, they’ll still cause you some serious headaches over time in Roseville, Ca.

You spent a few hundred dollars on potty training for your dog and he still likes to urinate on your expensive carpet? 

Don’t worry, this is common in every household that has a pet. Regardless of the training it got, a pet is a pet and when he’ll need to go, he’ll go right on the spot. 

So from now on, make cleaning pet urine from carpets a priority, since it’s one of the few areas where cleaning up is actually more effective than helping prevent the phenomenon.

Regardless if it’s your dog, cat or hamster that did the deed, pet urine is extremely unpleasant because it has a powerful odor and leaves a visible amber spot on the carpet. Removing the odor will be discussed below, so let’s see how you can remove pet urine stains from carpets using baking soda and white vinegar:

With baking soda, you need to make sure the stain is dried down first. So take a clean towel or some paper and press it down against the carpet, absorbing the liquid as thoroughly as possible. This will greatly reduce the damage the urine will have on the carpet, so the faster you’re able to dry it out, the better.

Now dampen the area with some clean water and sprinkle the baking soda over the area, letting it dry (sometimes several hours are needed, so you might want to leave it overnight). Lastly, vacuum to remove the debris created by the baking soda and your stain should be gone. 

If you want to use vinegar to clean out the stain, mix half a cup with ¼ cup of warm water and spill the mixture over the targeted area. (DO NOT MIX THE BAKING SODA WITH THE VINEGAR!) Use a dry towel on top of it and place a heavy object on top of it to apply pressure. You’ll need to keep it there for a couple of hours, so if you want to be on the safe side of things, you might want to leave it there overnight. In the morning, remove the towel and use a soft hairbrush to clean the carpet off, if needed.

Nothing takes the mood out of a room like a smelly carpet in Rosevill Ca. Whether the smell is caused by stale dust and debris, lack of air circulation or by pets relieving themselves on your precious carpet, taking the smell out will be a priority. But with nasty carpet odors, you don’t have that much time.

There’s actually a very simple do it yourself carpet odor removal technique that not many homeowners are familiar with: baking soda treatment. Baking soda may have been designed for a different purpose than cleaning carpets, but the truth is that it’s very efficient in taking out bad smells completely.

Although there’s no such process involved, you might hear others say that baking soda “absorbs” smell. In truth, it cleans up the area where the smell originated and stops it from getting in the air.

Now, if you’re dealing with a cat or dog stain, you’ll want to sprinkle baking soda only on that area, but if you’re dealing with a general problem, sprinkle it all over the carpet, making sure it’s evened out. The longer you leave the baking soda on the floor, the better it will clean and freshen the carpet up in roseville, ca

You will probably want to leave it there overnight, but if you’re treating a carpet that’s not in an essential room, where you’ll need to get by several times per day, you might want to leave it for two days straight, to get the carpet cleaned up thoroughly in roseville ca. 

When you’re ready to start the clean-up process, first sweep over the carpet with a hard-edged broom to get most of the baking soda off. Afterwards, use a vacuum cleaner to pick up the remaining particles. Just make sure you don’t vacuum before sweeping, or you might damage your vacuum cleaner, as it will suck up huge amounts of baking soda.

In case any soda got stuck on the fibers, you can use a scrub to take off these particles, freeing the carpet. If you didn’t manage to get the carpet odor out with the above technique, try it again.

If you’re still having problems, you’re dealing with some nasty stuff over there. Still, there might be a practical solution: using baking soda, vinegar, dish soap and hydrogen peroxide.

Vinegar is acidic in nature, so it will burn the particles that were harder to remove.  Dish soap can give your carpet a fresh, clean smell, although alone, it won’t clean the old odor up, it will just replace it temporarily.

 Our suggestion would be to combine these methods only if the double baking soda technique failed, otherwise you’re just over nuking your floor and potentially damaging it.
