A Whole New Rug

With all the recent hype about the remake of the classic film, Aladdin, we at Renew (who are big Disney fans) got talking about the real star of the movie – the magic carpet!

Many homes across Ireland have their own ‘magic carpet,’ that too could take flight, with the number of germs that they harbor. Even those who are in the habit of having their carpets professionally cleaned regularly, can unknowingly neglect their rugs. The rug, also known in the industry as ‘the forgotten one’ (not really, but it should be) needs the same amount of TLC as carpets and upholstery.

Although rugs are a great decorative accessory for any room, instantly adding warmth and texture, they can also be a real dirt magnet. In busy family homes rugs have many uses, not just to look pretty. They can double up as playmats, and be subjected to all sorts from drooling babies learning to crawl, to hardy toddlers who can’t yet aim for their mouth. Having your rug professionally cleaned is extremely important in maintaining a clean and healthy home.

Professional rug cleaning can remove up to 6 times more dirt, allergens, pet dander and dust mites than vacuuming alone. Thanks to our specially placed dryers, we can guarantee drying time of 60 minutes, so you won’t have to spend your evening reminding yourself, and everyone around you – not to step on the rug!

We know that people nowadays are money conscious, and rightly so. If you have spent your hard-earned cash on a rug, you want to make sure it can look its best, for as long as possible. Therefore, we always recommend using a protective treatment to our customers. This not only prolongs the life of the rug, but also acts as a barrier to prevent stains and premature wear. It also makes the rug easier to hoover, and anything that makes hoovering easier is a good thing, right?

No matter how stylish your home looks, you want it to smell fresh, and no amount of fancy candles can hide the bad odours that a dirty rug can emit. Having your rug professional cleaned not only leaves it looking great, but smelling great too.

At Renew we are so passionate about rug maintenance, that we are recognised by The Carpet and Rug Institute (Gold Seal of approval) and use wool safe approved products on all rugs. So, booking with us means you can rest assured that your very own ‘magic carpet’ is in the best possible hands.

Pets and Allergies

Pets and Allergies

 

How to create a healthy living environment for you and your pets.

Many of us buy pets with the best of intentions, and a head full of rules. We start of determined that they’ll never venture upstairs, or onto furniture, and will most definitely always sleep in their own bed, but as pets win over our hearts, they also win over our homes.

Our favourite spot on the couch soon becomes theirs too, so it’s not surprising to see your home gradually covered in a blanket of pet hair. This hair can not only be unsightly, but can carry with it, urine, saliva and pet dander. Pet dander is tiny flecks of dead skin, shed by cats, dogs and other animals with fur or feathers. It’s this dander which causes people to have allergic reactions to certain types of animals.

Unfortunately, many of us don’t know we have an allergy to pet dander, until we get a pet of our own and by then, it’s too late. Pet allergies can vary in reactions, from skin irritation, coughing and sneezing, to wheezing and even asthma attacks. As soon as an allergy becomes apparent, it can be hard to get a handle on, without having to rehome the pet – which no owner wants to do. Therefore, most people try to control the problem as best they can.

There are lots of ways to try and ease pet allergies, such as keeping your home clutter free, not allowing pets in the bedroom, and using air purifiers. However, having your upholstery, carpets, rugs and curtains professionally cleaned is vital when trying to control pet allergens.

At Renew, we specialise in removing up to 95.5% of pet dander along with dust mites, bacteria and other allergens. Whether it’s your carpets, curtains, upholstery or that rug your pet loves to snooze on, each piece is cleaned and treated with the upmost care and attention. After we have removed all harmful pollutants, your home is left with better indoor air quality, which is beneficial for both you and your pets.

For those lucky enough not to suffer with allergies, having your carpets and upholstery professionally cleaned is still extremely important. Pet allergens are unique, in that they don’t lose their power with the length of time they’re hanging around. Even months after being deposited, they can still cause severe allergies, which may not affect you, but could affect any new arrivals, or visitors to your home.

As cute as pets are, they don’t tend to smell as good as they look. You may not notice, but guests to your home can most likely smell your pet, before even seeing them. Pet odours become trapped in fabrics, emitting their smell like a bad air freshener. After a professional cleaning these odours are removed, leaving your carpets and upholsteries not only looking fresh, but smelling fresh too. We are proud that we don’t need to use harsh chemicals to achieve this. All our cleaning products are safe for your beloved pets and are F.D.A approved, giving you complete peace of mind.

Hiring a Carpet Cleaner in 4 easy steps

Hiring a Carpet Cleaner in 4 easy steps

 

#1 Make a commitment to yourself to get your carpets cleaned.

The longer you leave your carpets to be cleaned the more dirt will build up in it.

Studies show that up to 450 grams of dirt per square foot can become trapped in the fibres of your carpet before the dirt even begins to show up on the surface of the pile. This dirt absorbs into the fibres and ultimately shortens the life of your carpet by wearing it down.

Many warranties require a yearly cleaning to maintain the guarantee. It would be a good idea to check this with your carpet supplier.

#2 List your objectives.

  • What are your main concerns when choosing a professional carpet cleaning service?
  • What do you expect from the end results? Do you have any concerns about pets or loved one’s health?
  • Is it possible for you to perform the task yourself?
  • Which contaminates do you wish to be removed during the process?
  • Do you want to work with honest people from a trustworthy company or a company that could be out of business by tomorrow?

Step #3 Ask Questions

Here are eight great questions to ask a carpet cleaning company before the job begins.

  1. What are the recommended methods to you suggest?
  2. What specialised equipment does your company use?
  3. What types of stains or soiling will the equipment remove from the carpet?
  4. How frequently should I have my carpets cleaned?
  5. what experience or training do you have in cleaning carpets?
  6. Are you a member of the CFI?
  7. Can I see your certification certificates?
  8. Are your employees certified by the IICRC?

Step #4 Invite them to view the job
Once you have full assurance that you have found a qualified, competent and professional carpet cleaning company, invite them to view the job at your home and always ask for a written quotation for your assurance of the exact cost amount of the service you need with no hidden charges and full money back guarantee.

The purpose of this is to provide you with the peace of mind knowing you’re getting all the information you need to the best decision on who to choose to clean your carpets. The proper care for your carpets in your home provides you and your family with a healthy indoor environment free from pollutions, and these guidelines will help you to locate an ethical and good quality carpet cleaner in your area.

Don’t expect the cleaning company to provide you with a quote over the phone without knowing the size of the job you want them to complete for you, any honest and reputable company will want to know the measurement of the area of carpet that is needed to be cleaned before they can give an estimate, have the correct measurements ready when you call them, to do this use a measuring tape or measuring wheel to get the exact size of the area.

How To Hire The Best Carpet Cleaning Company in Dublin?

Hiring a Carpet Cleaner

A good knowledge of the carpet cleaning industry along with full understanding of the chemicals and treatments used in the process is essential to ensure the safety of the occupier and to avoid damage to the carpets that are being treated.

Unfortunately, the carpet cleaning industry is unregulated by officials and this can result in companies claiming to be professional only for the client to later discover they have been placing their trust with a company that in fact has very little knowledge of the services they are providing, with often costly and disastrous results.

Finding a reputable carpet cleaning company can seem like a challenge but can be made easier by reading positive reviews and testimonials from previous clients and often the most professional companies will offer a full money back guarantee.

Good carpet cleaning businesses will stand out from the crowd and offer you peace of mind along with their high-quality knowledge and services.

Common mistakes people make when hiring a professional:

#1 Hiring a carpet cleaning service only going on what equipment they use
.
A professional service will require high-quality equipment but they also need to be operated by skilled workers to get the job done correctly.

The employees need to be skilled at operating the machinery provided by the company to clean your carpets correctly.
Many cleaning companies own hot-water extractors, but their workers aren’t trained in how to use them properly.

The best way to know if a company is using employees who are properly trained and qualified in using these types of equipment is to ask for proof of the companies (IICRC) certification, this is a certification given to companies and employees who are certified by the Institute of Inspection, cleaning, and restoration certificate.

#2 Hiring a carpet cleaning company because they offer the lowest price

When hiring a company due to its offer of very low prices in comparison to other competitors you may find yourself faced with one of these problems:

  1. The company might be using less than professional quality equipment which may result in your carpets not being cleaned as you expected.
  2. Very low prices might be offered to lure you as the consumer into hiring the company, only to later discover it was a trap and there are lots of other added costs added to the final invoice.
  3. Companies may offer a low price but only provide you with a low-efficiency singular process clean which is not as thorough as a professional dual process carpet cleaning service. these companies rely on you as the consumer not understanding the difference between the two services and aim to take your hard earned money without really providing you with the service you need.

#3 Choosing a carpet cleaning company via telephone or only getting a single quote from one company

Always ask for a written quotation with the exact price for the service you require, invite the company to your home to evaluate so there are no misunderstandings about the type of service you need and will not result in any added costs being added to the bill on completion.

#4 Hiring a company that does not offer a money back guarantee with their service

A professional company will always offer a money back guarantee to back up the claims that they offer a great service. This not only eases the mind of you the consumer but says the company takes responsibility for their own mistakes if any should arise.

Always ask the company at the time of quotation whether or not they offer a guarantee and ask them to include it in the final written quote.

#5 Choosing a carpet cleaner without searching out testimonials from their previous clients

Most professional companies can supply you with references on request and online reviews and testimonies make it even easier to find a high-quality service from local businesses.

#6 Choosing a carpet cleaner who isn’t certified by the institution of inspection, cleaning and restoration certification (IICR)

Ask the company if they are IICRC Certified for added peace of mind. This certificate is the equivalent of a college degree shows that the staff members have received the correct training and have taken a written examination to prove their knowledge in the services provided and also how to use the different chemicals safely.

#7 Hiring a carpet cleaning company that is not a registered member of the (CFI)

The carpet and fabric Institute are an association who aim to provide:

  1.  A very high level of customer service.
  2.  Offer the latest up to date methods for all carpet cleaning services.
  3.  Provide ethical business practices to the highest standard.

#8 Hiring a carpet cleaner who doesn’t use a hot water system

A Vehicle mounted water system is more efficient in cleaning than any other system and will ensure the job is completed to the highest possible standard.

They provide continuous hot water, higher pressure and stronger suction which gives outstanding results when getting your carpets cleaned.

Here’s what you should expect from a professional company:

* No hidden costs.
Request an itemised cost breakdown for each of the services and prices before technicians begin.

* No Pressure.
You as the client should never feel pressurised into paying for added services that you didn’t initially want or require.

* Satisfied customer.
Cleaning firms should offer guarantees in writing as a way to ensure that any problems or misunderstandings will be dealt with professionally and the company should take responsibility for any damages or unsatisfactory work.

* Vacuuming.
The cleaner should start by vacuuming high traffic and busy areas where dirt, grit and soil accumulate, This ensures the process is actually cleaning rather than just mixing with the debris already present.

* Removing furniture.
The moving of furnishings to clean carpet areas beneath should be part of the normal cleaning job unless otherwise stated.

* Spot-cleaning.

Spot cleaning is usually included as a part of a regular job spec. However, specialised spot cleaning might require further charges if it requires more time-consuming work, ask about this when acquiring the written quote from the carpet cleaning company.

* Preconditioning treatments.
Heavily soiled areas will require special preconditioning agents, these should be included in the overall price.

Health Benefits of Regular Carpet Cleaning

Health Benefits of Regular Carpet Cleaning

When we think about air pollution, we tend to think of occurrences outside the house like car emissions, smoke from domestic fires, and pollution from industrial factories.

We are all well aware of the link between breathing polluted air and increased respiratory symptoms, Including:

  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Decreased lung function
  • Aggravated asthma

What most people are not aware of is that indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than the air outside.

Indoor air pollutants are the leading causes of asthma and breathing problems. Understanding and controlling common indoor pollutants can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns.

What Causes Indoor Air Pollution?

The air in our homes is heavily contaminated with pollen, food particles, dust mites, bacteria and dead skin cells.

All these pollutants get trapped in fabrics around the home and can cause serious health problems, especially to children and elderly people.

All these tiny particles float around the air in your home and aggravate allergies, irritate your throat, eyes, and nose, as well as weaken your immune system leading to more cold and flues while leaving you feeling lethargic.

Inadequate ventilation is an issue. Most of our time is spent trying to heat our homes. (and shouting at our kids telling them to close the door because it’s letting the heat out)

Although leaving a window open is not always a viable option. The truth is, if maintained and cleaned properly, your home-based carpet can actually improve your family’s health.

Whether you’re a stay at home mom, or you work in an office chances are you spend more than 90% of your time indoors.

A clean and well-maintained carpet can trap allergens and particles to prevent them from escaping into the air and being inhaled.

There are significant health benefits to maintaining clean carpets especially in homes with young children this is because children are usually harmed the most at risk. That is partly because young children spend a lot of time close to the floor, and because their immune system is not as robust as that of an adult.

Respiratory complications, like asthma, can be triggered by poor indoor air quality, which is why most homeowners notice improved health following a thorough cleaning of their carpet.

What Are the Real Benefits of Having A Clean Carpet in Your Home?

Carpets are the most popular kind of house flooring that most homes prefer due of their softness & warmth, it also makes your whole family feel welcome and feel at home.

Carpet literally acts as an air filter to trap dust, pollen, and potentially dangerous particles to improve indoor air quality and overall breathing.

Carpet can also act as a placemat for food crumbs and spilled drinks. It collects dirt, debris, and bacteria from daily life.

A clean carpet is the foundation of a cozy, comfortable and stylish home decoration. However, a badly kept carpet can ruin the mood of the whole room, no matter how nice the rest of the room design looks.

A clean carpet can have an instant impact on the visitors of a home and the inhabitants alike.

Aside from improving the appearance of a home and extending the life of carpets & rugs, professional carpet cleaning has numerous health benefits, which include:

(1) Prevent Unhealthy Mold Growths

The risk of mold and other unhealthy growths developing in dirty carpets is high in areas of high humidity where the carpet is exposed to moisture.

When it’s raining outside (Unfortunately all too often) moisture is tracked indoors, this moisture sinks into carpeting which promotes mildew and mold growth.

Studies have shown that mold is actually more harmful than smoking cigarettes as it produces spores on the lungs leading to serious health and respiratory diseases

(2) Prevents Dust Mites

Dust mites are microscopic and as such, many people are not aware of an infestation when it occurs. To put it into perspective about half a teaspoon of dust may contain up to 20,000 dust mites.

It is the feces of dust mites left behind which cause allergic reactions. The microscopic particles are easily inhaled when an infested area is disturbed.

(3) Good Air Quality

Cleaning your carpet removes dirty elements from the carpet surface. Breathing becomes difficult when these contaminants penetrate deep into the carpet. Asthma patients and those who have allergies find breathing easier after carpets have been cleaned.

Although we might not normally associate cleaning of carpet with improved indoor air quality, it does have a very positive effect. Dust accumulated by not cleaning the carpet, circulate in the air and can affect the health of asthma patients and anybody actually.

(4) Elimination of Harmful Pollutants

Dirty carpets retain sources of indoor pollutants to the air. Apart from everyday dust and dirt, they contain pollutants, lead, allergens, and pet dander.

Toxic airborne gasses adhere to the particulate matter and become trapped in the carpet.

When people vacuum or walk over the carpet, toxic gasses are released into the air that is now contaminated.

Cleaning a carpet with high-powered vacuuming helps to remove deeply trapped pollutants.

Benefits of keeping our carpets clean

Keeping our carpets clean will invariably improve indoor air quality which can be beneficial to the home in the following ways:

(a) Reduced odors

Whether you cook a lot or carry out other activities that dirty the home, odors are always a potential problem. Bad smells do have a very unpleasant effect on your mood, thoughts, and behaviors. Bad odors can leave you uncharacteristically grumpy and irritable.

On the other hand, good smells—like chamomile, flowers, and citrus—improve your mood, reduce stress, and lower your heart rate.

(b) Balanced humidity

Good indoor air quality also brings about a good balance of humidity. Humidity, which is the amount of water in the air, affects all aspects of your environment. Too much makes breathing feel heavy and also makes your home feel stuffy and moist. The extra moisture causes mold growth and increased dust mite populations while also attracting pests.
(c) Better sleep

Our respiratory rate changes when we’re asleep such that our breathing rate decreases and becomes much steadier. So as important as air is when you’re awake, it’s just as important when you’re asleep.

With clean indoor air, you won’t have to worry about breathing problems, so you can wake up feeling refreshed.

(d) Easy breathing

Breathing is naturally an unconscious action. You do it without thinking much about it, but if your home’s air quality is low, breathing can feel terrible. Surviving on shallow breaths puts a lot of stress on your body, especially your heart and lungs, making even climbing a flight of stairs a physically tiring task.

With clean air, you can take big, easy breaths and give your body the oxygen it needs.

What to do:

Normal vacuuming is rarely enough as it only removes loose dirt from the carpet, to obtain the health benefits from having a carpet you should both vacuum and have your carpet deep cleaned and treated by a professional cleaner.

Professional cleaning uses high-pressure cleaning solutions to disintegrate oily and greasy matters, remove stains and any unwanted allergens.

Before hiring a carpet cleaning it’s important to note that the type of chemicals used will also have an impact on your health. All chemicals used should be eco-friendly – be sure to look for the CRI logo before hiring a professional cleaning company.

Tiny Roommates in Your Mattress

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]
According to the College of Asthma, Allergy, and Immunology, dust mites are a primary cause of asthma and home-based allergies for all ages.

Approximately 10% of Ireland’s population are allergic to dust mites, so it’s not hard to find a link to multiple diseases and health conditions.

If you’ve ever woken up with sniffles, an unexpected sinus headache, itchy eyes or unexplained sneezing, chances are you have a dust mite allergy. Fortunately, these annoying critters can be professionally controlled.

What Are Dust Mites and How Do They Trigger Allergic Reactions?

Chances are you’ve at least seen a dust bunny or two in your lifetime. It’s more likely that they’re lurking all over your home. Many people automatically assume the fluffy piles of lint are just comprised of random dirt, bits of food, and dead skin cells or other “harmless” materials.

However, those “bunnies” are far more evil than they appear. Why? Because they’re really comprised of dust mites.

Dust mites can’t be seen by the naked eye. They’re microscopic insects that feed on many types of dirt and debris, but dead skin cells are their passion.

So then, you might be thinking, “What’s wrong with that if I can’t see them anyway and they consume dirt and dead skin?”

Well, let’s look at how quickly they copulate.

Mattress CleaningA single gram (half teaspoon) of dust contains up to 1,000 dust mites. Yet, compared to the average mattress, that’s practically nothing. Your bedding may look clean. It may even smell fresh and wonderful. But the typical mattress contains between 100,000 and 10 million dust mites at any given time.

If you think that’s gross, just wait because the average dust mite produces 20 waste droppings on a daily basis. Not only are you living with and breathing in these microscopic creatures, but you’re literally lying in their feces!

Even if you’re horrible with math, the undisputed fact is that 10 million dust mites excreting 20 waste droppings per day equal a lot of filth you simply don’t need in your life.

And what’s even worse is it’s not usually the bugs that cause the problem, it’s the waste itself.

Inhaling the enzymes and feces can irritate human lungs and aggravate asthma. It can also cause breathing issues, especially for children and the elderly.

Ignoring simple sniffles or nasal congestion that seem to have no obvious cause can be a grave mistake.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of a Potential Dust Mite Infestation?

Exposure to dust mites and the resulting allergens is enhanced during sleeping hours or whenever the dust is disturbed.

So as wonderful as plopping into an over-stuffed bed may sound after a long, hard day at work, such an action can have unforeseen consequences.

The mildest reaction may be a runny nose. But those especially sensitive to dust mite excretions can experience frequent or chronic reactions that may result in dramatic health concerns.

In fact, any or all of the following symptoms can be caused by the tiny, unwelcome intruders:

  • Asthma
  • Coughing Fits
  • Eczema
  • Facial Pain
  • Hay Fever
  • Itchy Nose
  • Itchy, Red, Watery Eyes
  • Nasal Congestion
  • Nasal Drip/ Runny Nose
  • Sneezing
  • Swollen Skin

Dust mites thrive in warm and humid conditions. In fact, they can’t survive long in continually cold conditions. They love to burrow into thick clothing and eat away at dead skin cells.

Dust mites won’t bite the host, but each will leave behind approximately 1,000 allergen-causing waste particles during its 80-day life cycle. And since each female dust mite can lay 25-30 eggs per week, it’s guaranteed more will follow if you continue to ignore the problem.

How Can You Get Rid of Dust Mites in Your Bed and Bedding?

Dust mite infestation causes a mattress to double in weight within ten years. So it’s both healthy and wise to wash your bed linen on a weekly basis.

But what about the mattress itself?

Experts suggest the mattresses should be deep cleaned once or twice per year to control, if not entirely remove, the unwelcomed sleeping partners.

Of course, waiting for ideal weather conditions and dragging each mattress out to a dry patch in the yard to either bake under the sun or freeze is not something any sane or rational human being would consider-at least not when there’s a far easier solution.

Why not just leave it to the professionals and call it a day?

Not only will you rid your life of the pests, but you’ll sleep better in the process.

Carpets & Your Health

Breath easy with clean carpet

Breath easy with clean carpet – a must read for Allergy sufferers

Carpeting has been a long time integral part of the indoor environment and there are long-held beliefs that carpets adversely impact allergy sufferers. In recent years carpets have been receiving some unfavorable publicity. The major Carpet Misconceptions relates to carpets being bad for people with asthma & breathing problems, however, according to multiple studies the opposite appears to be true!

Research

Noted toxicologist Dr. Mitchell Sauerhoff, Ph. D., DABT, looked at carpet and its purported link to asthma and allergies in his research paper, Carpet, Asthma and Allergies – Myth or Reality. In the report, Dr. Sauerhoff reviewed more than 23 scientific studies representing research performed in the U.S. and around the world. After months of research, Dr. Sauerhoff concluded that the negative perceptions and persistent, long-held beliefs on carpet’s alleged negative characteristics are not consistent with current nonconclusive research.
A governed study that spanned over 15 years In Sweden concluded that no link existed between carpets and allergy or asthma attacks. In fact, when carpet usage in Sweden decreased by 70 percent, allergy reactions in the general population increased by 30 percent.
Another study conducted in 2003, based on school children in New Jersey America, found that having carpet in a child’s bedroom was associated with fewer missed school days and less need for asthma medication. These are just three of many studies showing no correlation between carpet and asthma or allergies.

How Carpet Helps Asthma & Allergy Sufferers

Rather than contributing to allergy and asthma problems, carpet helps those with these conditions and well-maintained carpet is safe.
Carpet act like a large filter, trapping allergens and keeping them out of the air you and your family breathe. These trapped allergens, such as pollen, pet dander and dust, can then easily be removed through professional cleaning techniques.

Healthy Home Management System

To keep your carpet in great shape, reduce allergens and retain good indoor air quality, consider these tips from the Carpet & Rug Institute:

  1. Vacuum regularly
    High-traffic or pet areas should be vacuumed daily, medium-traffic areas need to be vacuumed about twice a week and light-traffic areas should be vacuumed weekly.
  1. Limit dirt intrusion.
    The ideal situation is keep as much dirt and grime off the carpet as possible. Be proactive and put out a durable entrance mat for people to wipe off their feet before entering your home.
  1. Deep clean
    Professional carpet cleaning by hot water extraction is recommended every six months – one year. This process extracts deeply embedded dirt that regular vacuuming can’t reach.

If you suffer from particularly bad allergies, consider cleaning your upholstered furniture, draperies and blinds also. Like carpet, these also need regular cleaning.  Drapes and blinds can build up microscopic allergens quickly from open windows. Vacuum and wash regularly and consider hiring a professional cleaner once a year or as needed.

Carpet Cleaning provides many benefits for many different people, including those with allergies. So before you spend a lot of money taking out your home’s carpet, remember why you chose it in the first place. Then take the proper steps to clean it so it complements your home for many years to come.

Clean floors are healthy floors, and carpet is a good choice for any home,  including those of personas with asthma and/or allergies.
