Plants and Carpet

Plants and carpet are a good combination. Plants can help to clean the air and add moisture to a dry home. There are many types of plants that suited to different lighting and home conditions. If you choose to have plants in your home you need to take some precautions to protect your floors and furniture from damage.

Plants and Carpet – Saucers

If you choose to put a potted pot directly on your carpet or other flooring, always put a saucer or basin under it. Plastic is probably the best choice. You want to cut down on any water running out of the pot and onto the flooring. You also want the basin to be non-porous so that water doesn’t condensate on it. The best choice is to elevate the basin and the plant with some type of plant stand or feet. This lets air flow between the plant and the flooring and you can easily notice any spills or condensation.

How to Properly Vacuum Carpet

Do I Need A HEPA Filter Vacuum?

First you need a decent vacuum, however you do not need to run out and spend several thousand dollars to get a good vacuum cleaner.  Usually $200-$500 will get you a good quality vacuum with HEPA filters.  HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air, and YES it worth it.  HEPA Filters trap the microscopic particles that would otherwise be forced out of the vacuum exhaust.  These tiny particles can cause allergies and other health problems, however by using a HEPA filter you trap the harmful particles and improve the indoor air quality for residents in your home.

Now that you have a good vacuum… use it frequently!  How often depends on the number of people in the house, kids, pets, and weather or not anyone is an allergy sufferer.  Anywhere from once a week to everyday, but for most homes every few days is acceptable.

What Carpet Cleaning Fairfax VA company to choose?


Wondering How to choose between the Carpet Cleaning companies in Fairfax VA?

Residential Carpet Cleaning in Northern Virginia

Residential Carpet Cleaning in Fairfax

Many carpet cleaning Fairfax Va companies will tell you that they have the cheapest price around and can’t be beat. My question to you is… Is price your only concern?

If price is your biggest concern when shopping for any contractor you will likely receive a mediocre job.  You might be surprised to find how much more you get for just a little more money.  Would you spend 10% more to be thrilled with the results Vs. the feeling of “not sure what I just paid for!”.  Also, what happens when something goes wrong or you are completely unsatisfied with the results… will they come back and fix it, will they even return your phone call?

When choosing a contractor (especially a carpet cleaner) check out their reviews online, ask for references, ask a lot of questions about what you can expect.  Just doing a little bit of research can same you a lot of heartache. Carpet cleaning Fairfax VA is an excellent resource for carpet care tips and cleaning information.

Carpet Cleaning Frequent Questions – Northern Virginia


Carpet Cleaning Northern Va – Frequently Asked Questions

Carpet Cleaning Frequent Questions Which cleaning method will remove the most dirt, bacteria, allergens, and improve my carpets appearance?
This would largely depend upon who you ask. Those that only dry clean would say dry cleaning is best, those that only offer hot water extraction would say that method is best. At Mighty Clean we offer more than one cleaning method, so after determining the condition of your carpets we select the method that best fits your needs. In a residential setting however, the method that will typically have the greatest improvement is the Hot Water Extraction Method (Steam Cleaning). This method offers the deepest cleaning, best sanitation, most thorough extraction of soils and truly the best overall results. We prefer this method because it is the only carpet cleaning method recommended by many of the major carpet manufactures, including Shaw Industries.

Filtration Soiling – Black Edges


Filtration Soiling – Ugly gray lines on the edge of carpet

Filtration Soiling - Black EdgesWhat are those dark gray lines on the border of carpeted rooms?

If you have light colored carpet, you have probably noticed these dark lines that appear on the edge of the carpet. These black edges are known as filtration soiling because as air passes through the carpet this microscopic soil is “filtered” out and left in the carpet (hence the name filtration). Over a significant period of time this soil builds up in areas where air is able to pass through the carpet, most commonly around the border of carpeted rooms and under doorways causing black edges.
