Bonnet or spin cleaning involves a rotary floor machine with a cleaning pad soaked in solution. As it moves over the carpet, the agitation causes dirt to be absorbed into the cleaning pad.

Unfortunately, though bonnet cleaners are able to remove some surface dirt, they also end up pushing a lot of dirt and cleaning solution further down into the carpet pile. This residue can then become a magnet for even more dirt.

The most effective type of bonnet cleaning for dirt removal is liquid encapsulation. This method involves pre-spraying the carpet, bonneting over it and then vacuuming up the resulting (dirt-encapsulated) foam that rises to the surface. Many people like bonnet cleaning because it is inexpensive and easy to do. However, though it can be useful for spot cleaning, this method is not usually recommended as a means of long-term carpet care because it is not the most effective at removing dirt.

As per ANGIESLIST.COM the 2018 national average is $175 for carpet cleaning (single room and whole house projects). Expect to pay between $120 and $235 for typical homes – larger whole-house projects can cost between $350 to $550 or more.

if your household is prone to spills or accidents that are difficult to clean, a small cleaner may be a worthwhile purchase to have on hand. However, for more general cleaning of your entire carpet surface, it’s highly recommended to have a professional company like Pristine Carpet Cleaning Bolingbrook IL come and do it.

Keep in mind that when shopping for a quality carpet cleaner, not all carpet cleaning services offer the same level of cleaning. Various factors separate a high quality carpet cleaning process that delivers a healthier and hygienic cleaning for your carpets and home from one that drenches your carpets with gallons of water and harsh cleaners that could damage the carpet life. These factors explain why the unique Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE)process offers a deeper, faster drying, healthier carpet cleaning experience than typical steam cleaning services.

When you steam clean carpet, you are saturating the carpet with excessive amount of water filled with soaps and detergents. This results in carpets that remain wet for 1-2 days, which creates a breeding ground for mold, mildew and bacteria. Plus, the soapy residue left behind by carpet steam cleaners attracts dirt and causes your carpets to get dirty much faster. That is why our loyal customers of over a decade trust Pristine Carpet Cleaning Bolingbrook IL with their cleaning needs.

Patios take a beating over the years. You keep the floors of you house clean, so keep your patio clean as well. Spring is a good time to clean so you’re ready for peak patio season. Here’s how to clean a cement patio. 

Move plants, furniture and other accessories off the patio. Sweep the surface to remove dirt and debris. Remove the weeds that may have grown along the edges or between the cracks in the pavers.

For a lightly soiled patio, you can remove dirt with a cleaner and a stiff brush. You can use bleach mixed with water. Add 1/8 cup of liquid dishwashing detergent to the solution and put into a spray bottle. Spray the solution onto the surface, let sit for a few minutes and then scrub with a stiff nylon-bristled brush. Don’t use a metallic brush because it can leave metal bits on the concrete that rust and stain the patio. If you have flowerbeds surrounding your patio, protect them as well. Bleach will harm the plants. Rinse the bleach off with the hose. Oxygen bleach (like OxiClean) is a safer option. Dilute with water and spray on the patio, then rinse off. For tough stains, mix oxygen bleach with water to make a paste the consistency of peanut butter. Apply to stained areas and let sit for an hour. Scrub with a nylon-bristle brush.

You can also make natural, eco-friendly cleaners from ingredients in your kitchen. 

Vinegar is the go-to natural cleaner and it works on patios. Mix it equal parts of vinegar and water to clean stains, or use full-strength vinegar on heavily soiled patios. Baking soda is another good natural cleaner. Mix 1/2 cup baking soda to one gallon of water for a gentle cleaning solution. Add 1/8 cup of liquid dish detergent. Spray on patio surface, let sit for 30 minutes, then scrub and rinse. 

For heavily stained or mildewed patios, you may need a pressure washer. You can rent one at a tool rental center or home improvement store. Follow the directions on the machine on how to clean a cement patio. Be sure to wear protective eyewear and gloves when using a pressure washer because the water comes out at a high force. Protect your house’s exterior walls and doors from loose debris the pressure washer will remove from the patio surface by covering the walls with plastic sheeting.

Once your patio is clean, protect it from future stains by sealing it with a concrete sealer. Use a paint roller to apply the sealer. Start from the middle of the patio and roll the sealer out to the edges. Once it’s dry, you’ll have a sparkling clean patio that’s ready for outdoor entertaining.

Concrete floors are commonly used in basements, patios and garages. Since these areas are prone to dirt, residue, mold or mildew, you should clean them with bleach. Bleach effectively removes many stains, deodorizes and kills mold and mildew when used properly. If you’re working indoors, always ventilate the area when using bleach to avoid the fumes. Clean your concrete floors regularly to keep them looking their best.

  1. Sweep any dust or debris from the concrete floor with a broom, pick it up in a dust pan and throw it away.
  2. Fill a bucket with 1 gallon of warm water and 3/4 cup of liquid bleach.
  3. Dip a mop into the bleach solution and wring it out. Mop the concrete floor thoroughly starting at one corner of the floor and working your way across. Rinse the mop in the bucket as needed. For tough stains or dirt, scrub the concrete with a scrub brush. Allow the bleach solution to sit for five minutes.
  4. Empty the bucket, rinse it out and fill it with clean, warm water. Dip the mop into the water and wring it out. Mop the floor with the clean water to rinse the bleach solution. If you’re indoors, keep any windows open or turn on a fan to aid in the drying process.

According to www.homeadvisor.com, the average cost to clean your area rug ranges between $50 and $350 or $200 on average for a typical rug between 4 by 8 and 6 by 10 feet. Rug cleaning prices per square foot are between $1.25 and $8.

At Pristine Carpet Cleaning Bolingbrook IL, we have our own proprietary method of cleaning rugs. However, most cleaners would employ the following mechanism:

  1. Remove loose dirt with a vacuum –

First, thoroughly vacuum the area rug on both sides.

  1. Test the cleaner on your rug for colorfastness –

You have two options for cleaners:

  • You can follow the mixing instructions on a store-bought rug cleaner/shampoo (Bissell makes a good one, available on Amazon).
  • Or, you can add a couple of capfuls of mild liquid dish soap to a bucket of warm water. Do not use hot water, as it may shrink fibers or fade color.

Now, test your cleaner (store-bought or homemade) on an inconspicuous part of the rug, such as a small part on the very corner, to make sure that it doesn’t make the colors run. If it doesn’t, proceed to the next step.

  1. Work the cleaner into the rug and let it sit for several minutes.

Using a sponge or brush, scrub the shampoo or detergent deep into the rug until you’re seeing suds. Allow the solution to sit on the rug and work for several minutes before rinsing.

  1. Hose off the rug.

Thoroughly rinse the rug with a garden hose, making sure the water is clear of soap suds before you finish.

  1. Use a squeegee to remove excess water.

This tool, often used in cleaning windows, will do just the trick to squeeze excess water out of the rug. Press the squeegee’s rubber-edged blade firmly into the rug and pull to get out as much liquid as you can, being careful to work only in the direction of the rug’s nap.

  1. Allow both sides of the rug to dry out completely.

Lay the rug flat to dry. Once the top side is dry, flip it over so the bottom can dry as well.

  1. Vacuum or brush the rug to loosen compacted fibers.

Run a vacuum or a clean soft-bristled brush over your area rug to loosen up the fibers of the rug, as they may have compacted during the washing/drying process.

Cleaning is usually charged by the square foot, but the stain’s size and type can impact the cost. In general, the larger the stain, the more expensive to remove it. Also, pet stains typically cost more to remove because they sink deep into the carpet’s fibers and take longer to remove than food stains.
