ThinkstockPhotos-459888363

Professional carpet cleaning equipment delivers higher quality cleaning than regular cleaning equipment. Whereas most people shy away from the extra cost that characterizes the initial acquisition of a professional carpet cleaner, the running cost, minimal repairs/ replacement, and the durability of professional carpet cleaners save users money in the long run. Here are a few advantages we, Cleaner Visions: Cleaning and Home Solutions, have compiled to help you understand the superiority of professional carpet cleaners.

Benefits Of Professional Carpet Cleaning Machines

 

Efficiency

A professional carpet cleaner is powered by a dual motor and, therefore, has a higher cleaning efficiency than that of the single-motored regular cleaners. Effective carpet cleaning is defined by the absolute removal of dirt and other stains from a carpet, as well as carpet drying. A single motor that runs both the water suction system and the scrubbing brushes does a less effective job compared to a dual motor of the professional carpet cleaner.

Running Costs, Maintenance And Warranty

Professional carpet cleaning equipment removes dirt and excessive water from a carpet fast, thereby, eliminating the need to run the machine for long durations. This reduces excessive energy consumption and the resulting high energy bills. Again, since commercial carpet cleaners are made to run heavy duty cleaning, they are made of high-quality materials and components that make them last longer than regular carpet cleaners. It is also typical for many commercial carpet cleaners to have up to five years of warranty compared to regular carpet cleaners whose validity can be as low as one year and not more than three years.

Water Storage And Capacity

Commercial carpet cleaners have multiple water systems to ensure that the clean, and dirty water does not mix. These machines also have larger water storage capacities than regular carpet cleaners, and that means a person can clean large carpets without having to stop for a water refill. The extra water storage may make these professional carpet cleaners larger/ bulkier than regular carpet cleaners, but the reduced hassle makes up for the bulkiness.

The choice of a carpet cleaner is determined by the carpet size, cleaning needs, and regularity of carpet cleaning requirements, among other aspects. Professional carpet cleaning equipment offer more efficiency, saved costs and durability compared to regular carpet cleaners.

How To Clean Makeup Brushes

Knowing how to clean makeup brushes is extremely important to have a healthy and hygienic experience with your makeup. There are a few different ways to clean your makeup brushes and we are going to visit one that you can do yourself in your home without having to buy any of the expensive brush cleansers that you see advertised. Here at Cleaner Visions:Cleaning and Home Solutions we strive to help you be clean and economical.

You can not only just clean your brushes, but also disinfect them. The first step is to get an antibacterial dish soap. Dawn is a great choice for this. Then we are going to use an extra virgin olive oil to make sure we do not dry the brushes out. This method is inexpensive and very easy to do all on your own.

First, take a plate and put a dollop of the dish detergent on it. Spread it about a little on the plate by tipping the place side to side. Now take your extra virgin olive oil and put a small bit on the side. Immediately take one of your brushes and start to use it and sweep back and forth through both the detergent and the olive oil. Next, take the brush and swish it back and forth over your open palm. Do this will all of the brushes you are going to clean.

Have a paper towel laid down on a flat surface and you are going to lay each brush down as you clean it. The next step is to rinse your brushes. Turn your faucet on and make sure you adjust it to warm. Take your brushes and one by one, run them under the warm water. You don’t want the water to be too hot or it could damage the brushes. Once you are done rinsing the brushes you can now take a clean and dry paper towel and carefully dry them off. Dry carefully and pull down in the direction of the brush.

If you have kept your brush guards that came with the brushes you can now use them to help dry your brushes. Do not dry your brushes upside down as the water will trickle down into the brush and slowly deteriorate the glue. Additionally, you want the brush to dry with the brush side down to keep any bacteria and dirt out.

Slide the brush guard on the brush and make sure it is overlapping the brush a tiny bit. You can now put your brush in a glass and have only the brush guard touching the glass. In this way the brush will dry and stay sterile and will also not become deformed.

We hope this has helped and please stayed tuned for our future articles on informative, easy and economical ways to keep your things clean and sparkling!

How To Clean Your Yoga Mat

The practice of yoga is great for both the body and the mind. It’s also gentle on the joints so it is possible to do everyday especially if you have your own yoga mat at home. Keep the mat clean and fresh even with regular use with these cleaning tips:

For slightly soiled mats:

Here’s how to clean a yoga mat by hand. Dilute mild dish soap in water and spray it onto both sides. Wash off the dirt with a clean, damp sponge. Work your way throughout the entire surface. Be careful not to put too much pressure or the mat might get a tear or develop other flaws. After washing with this soapy solution, wipe off the residue with a clean sponge that is slightly damp with water. Finally, wipe things up with a towel and air dry.

For heavily soiled mats:

Sometimes we just don’t have the time to wash it so the dirt piles up and really sticks to the surface. Heavily soiled mats require more intensive cleaning. Mix soap with water in a tub and place the mat in it. Let it stand for and hour or so then begin to wash off the dirt with a soapy sponge. After you are satisfied with your work, rinse everything with water to remove the residues. Wipe with a towel and allow it to dry in the air. Do not place it under the sun.

For machine washing:

If you do not have time to do washing, then you may opt to put the mat inside the washing machine. Just remember to use a mild detergent and use the gentle cycle so as not to damage the piece. Do not do this often. Mats will only need to be clean every once in a while.

For quick drying:

Don’t put it in the dryer. Just wipe it with a towel and hang it somewhere to air dry. Or you can place a similarly sized towel on the surface, things up, and give it a good squeeze to force the water into the towel before drying.

The Easiest Guide For Cleaning Toilets

ThinkstockPhotos-80618846

Cleaning your toilet will not only keep your home looking neat but will also help keep diseases and infections at bay. Here are some tips on how to clean toilets.

The best areas to start cleaning your toilet are the handle and tank. Use multi-surface cleaner on these surfaces and use a quarterly folded cloth to wipe clean. A quarterly folded cloth allows you to use different sides to clean and dry the wet surfaces. To avoid spreading germs to the handle and tank, avoid cleaning the seat or lid first as they are dirtier.

Once the tank and handle is cleaned, spray the multi-surface cleaner on the lid and seat and use a fresh side of the folded cloth to clean. The seat is usually dirtier and will require more of the cleaner to properly clean.

Once you are done with the seat, it is now time to clean the toilet bowl. Sprinkle the cleaner generously around the bowl, making sure you cover each spot. Now take a brush and use the water in the bowl to wet it and then use a circular motion to clean the sides of the toilet bowl. When done, shake the brush to get rid of excessive water and then flush the toilet.

To clean the outside of the bowl, apply some cleaner on the surface and use the same method used for cleaning the handle and tank. Finally, use a dry cloth to wipe any cleaner left on the surface. This should leave your toilet sparkling clean.

With proper tools in place, cleaning your toilet shouldn’t take more than three minutes to finish. If there are tough stains on the surface of the toilet that have proven difficult to clean with regular multi-surface cleaner, go to your local store and get a commercial acid-based cleaner which should get rid of the problem a lot quicker. If you are trying to avoid such chemicals when cleaning your toilet, a pumice stone meant for toilet bowls will do just fine.
