Q: I’ve heard it’s best to put off having your carpet cleaned as long as possible, is this true?
A: No. In fact, many of the major carpet mills today recommend professional cleaning at least once per year. The build up of soil in your carpet in combination with foot traffic creates abrasion that breaks down your carpet’s fibers. The higher the traffic in a given area, the more often the carpet will need cleaning. http://ow.ly/fx3J6
Q: How often should my carpet be cleaned?
A: If you vacuum frequently we recommend professional cleaning at least every 12 months, or 6 to 8 months with less vacuuming and high traffic and pets. http://ow.ly/fx3zL
Q: How can I maintain my new carpet warranty?
A: There are three key things to do to maintain your new carpet warranty:
1. Vacuum frequently
2. Clean spills promptly
3. Have periodic professional carpet cleanings
Q: Why is professional cleaning important?
A: When vacuuming no longer removes all of the soil, or you have not been able to remove spots following the recommended carpet care and cleaning procedures, it’s time to have your carpet cleaned by a trained and qualified professional cleaner. At Kip’s we know the latest information on carpet construction, carpet care products, and safe, effective cleaning methods to help maintain carpet beauty. For this reason, we recommend, and most carpet manufacturers’ warranties require, periodic professional cleaning. http://ow.ly/fx3lQ
What would the holidays be like without treats?
We came across this list of “Cookies For Canines: 9 Homemade Dog Treat Recipes.”
Anyone have a favorite pet treat recipe to share?
Q: I know regular vacuuming is important. What type of vacuum should I use?
A: A good vacuum cleaner is extremely important in prolonging the life of your carpet. Almost any vacuum cleaner can remove surface dirt, but only a quality machine can effectively remove the soil that’s embedded in the pile. We recommend using a vacuum cleaner with a rotating brush or beater/brush combination that agitates the carpet pile to loosen embedded soil. (Note that some thick loop pile carpets can become fuzzy when cleaned with a rotating brush-style vacuum cleaner. For those carpets, we recommend a good quality suction-only machine.) http://ow.ly/fx36T
Does your Man Cave smell like a Man Cave?
Once we take the real “man cave” odors out, you can put a more pleasant version back in with the “Yankee Candle scent that smells like a Man Cave”. “Yankee Candle Chief Executive Officer Harlan Kent is battling for men’s equality in the candle industry. After twisting the arm of its head of innovation, the Massachusetts company has launched a limited-edition collection of men’s candles available in four fragrances: Man Town, First Down, Riding Mower, and 2 X 4.” http://ow.ly/g4KQJ
