Care and Cleaning
Once you have your new flooring installed, regular care procedures become the foundation for the life of your floors. We will go over some basic principles here, however we urge that you consult with our Sure Dry Restoration staff for any specific questions or needs.
What can we do to keep our carpet looking new? We hear this quite often. The basic answer is to vacuum regularly. The reason this is so important becomes apparent when you take a look at common household dirt under a microscope. These soils in your carpet act as an abrasive, that will wear the fiber strands and make your carpet appear dull. If you have children or you entertain, then it is a good ideal to vacuum several times a week. The areas of your home that receive the bulk of foot traffic, should receive more attention. Synthetic carpet fibers hide soils very effectively, because of this, a professional deep extraction cleaning should be done before you notice that you need one. Please check with our Sure Dry Restoration staff about a cleaning schedule that best suits your circumstance. Spills can be cleaned up with a damp clean cloth. Try to use a blotting action on the spill to minimize the spill size. Call the professionals at Sure Dry if you are not sure what to do. One of our certified technicians can assist you.
Hard surfaces like vinyl, hard wood, ceramic, and laminates are subject to the same kinds of household soil as carpet. Vacuuming or sweeping regularly is key. Spills should be wiped up quickly with a clean cloth. This help eliminates the chance of a permanent stain that might be more difficult to deal with later. It is also recommended to use small pads under furniture legs to help protect from indentation in the flooring. Also recommended is the use of mats and area rugs that may trap small particles of dirt and rock, that may scratch surfaces. Try to avoid moving furniture either by pushing or by rollers attached to legs. Lifting is the best way to move objects. Manufactures supply specific maintenance and care procedures in brochures and on their web sites. We recommend following manufactures specifications, and will assist in understanding these extensively thought out suggestions.
