It’s not what first comes to mind. A couple of days ago, my Technician was cleaning a carpet in a large home. He comes across a couple of ink spots on the stairs, part of the pen still has ink coming out of it. So he goes to the van to his trusty spot removal kit, and low and behold nothing there to remove ink. As a small reminder, my Technician has 28 years experience in the Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Industry. He is also a Fiber and Fabric Specialist. He talks to the owner and ask if they have rubbing alcohol. (remember he in right in the middle of cleaning these stairs) The owner says no. So he ask for vodka (1st choice because it’s clear) no vodka. Then he ask for tequila, yes we have tequila. So he takes the tequila and proceeds to place a small amount on the ink stains. Immediately after rinsing, the spots are completely gone. Not a single trace of ink. So if your in a pinch, and spill some ink on the carpets, this method may help. But first call your Hometown Professional Carpet Care Specialist  so he can walk you through the process of pouring “Tequila on your Carpets.”

Conditioning your Leather Upholstery should be a “Top Priority” this time of year. The couch and chair below have that well lived in and very comfortable look. This is everyone’s favorite part of the home. Teen children and pets make this their favorite sitting areas, even Dad after a hard days work; his favorite chair and place to relax with Mom and the entire family.

The leather upholstery in the photos below were cleaned and conditioned with a “Non-Petroleum” all natural solution. This all natural solution brings out the natural luster from the leather. The leather upholstery was also treated with a solution to remove odors that have been laying in the leather. After conditioning, this furniture is now ready for many more years of comfort for the entire family.

Furniture Even “Indiana Jones” would be proud to sit in!

     Today, you finally call your friendly neighborhood Professional Carpet Cleaning Specialist. Time for “Spring Cleaning.” Looking forward to clean carpets for the entire family to enjoy. Especially “Fido” who just loves to lounge near your favorite chair on the carpet. Just how safe is it for Fido after cleaning?

     We must investigate.

     Some of your most common ingredients to avoid are as follows:

Hydroxyacetic acid, butoxyethanol, isobutane, monohexyl ether, alcohol, and bleach. These products are toxic when they come in contact with skin or are inhaled. If any of these ingredients are part of the cleaning process used, it may be a good idea to keep away from them. Fido may get an unpleasant reaction from these if they are used on your carpets.

     Some of your more natural solutions may contain:

Baking soda, citrus, water, vinegar, salt, borax, oxygen. These can be easily understood. Fido will be extremely happy when using these cleaning solutions.

     Do a little homework and investigate what is going to be brought into your home. Is it “Safe” and “Pet Friendly?” Is it friendly for you and your entire family?

     Be sure to ask your Professional Carpet Care Specialist for “Carpet Shield” carpet and fabric protector.
