Vacuuming strategies made easy
Getting rid of toxins on rugs and carpet can be very tricky because you need a vacuum cleaner that not only removes dirt, but filters out microscopic toxic particles you don’t see. Did you know that toxins can ‘ride’ on dust and linger around in our homes? Getting rid of these toxins are critical for homeowners to keep their carpets consistently cleaned. Vacuuming regularly is extremely important even if it looks clean due to the toxins hiding in the dust! A great strategy to vacuum is to start on the upper level of your home (if you have one) and go to the farthest corner of the back room vacuuming from left to right. This strategy helps with not missing spots in your carpet where dust and bacteria can hide. If you have the time, a great way to vacuum is go in the opposite direction, from right to left instead. It might seem like a lot of work, but it’s a great way to get embedded dirt, dust, pet hair, and dander out of your carpet. It will help keep your lines evident so you know where you have vacuumed. Knowing where you have already vacuumed helps remove the embedded dirt and dust more effectively and thoroughly. These strategies for vacuuming are ways to easily remove visible dirt keeping your carpet cleaned efficiently. Mark’s Cleaning Service offers a full house cleaning for every room to get thoroughly vacuumed as well as bathrooms, kitchens, utility rooms and basements!

Myths on Carpet Cleaning Debunked
Did you know that there are several myths to carpet cleaning? Without regular deep cleaning and surface cleaning, your carpets are more susceptible to germs even than a toilet seat! Most carpet contains 200,000 bacteria per square inch on average. This means carpet is technically a thousand times germ-ier than a toilet seat! The myth you often hear is that your carpet is dirtier than a toilet seat – correction; typical carpet roughly contains 200,000 bacteria per square inch! Meaning carpets are at least 4,000 times more than a toilet seat! Another myth about carpet is that it can hide a pound of dirt per yard and still look clean. The scary truth is how much bacteria already hides in your carpet about to 200,000 bacteria per square inch and still look clean! On top of daily tracks of living (food crumbs, pollen, dirt from shoes, pet urine, and coffee spills) vacuuming and treating spills only cleans the visible dirt. Only a professional carpet cleaning can truly remove all of the bacteria that you don’t see!
