Curtain Cleaning! Time for a Curtain Call

curtain cleaning

 

Hassle and fear – the two words most associated with curtain cleaning! Many people look at their curtains for months, sometimes years, and think they’ll have to get around to cleaning them. When they do set aside time for what can feel like a mammoth task, it’s fear of shrinking or fading the curtains that has the job being put off for another day.

Why call the professionals?

Curtain cleaning can be a big job and can go wrong when reluctantly done at home. However, calling in the professionals for important jobs like these, not only takes the pressure off you, but gives you peace of mind that your curtains won’t get damaged in the process.

At Renew we love cleaning curtains! It’s our thing, shall we say, and we take pride in the great results and positive customer feedback that we’ve received over the years. Our cleaning service is for virtually all types of curtain fabric, pelmet or tie-back. So you can rest assured that your curtains will look the same – except cleaner, and will still meet in the middle when we’re done!

Curtains are a big feature of any room, tying in colour schemes and decor to really bring a room together. They add warmth and block out the outside world, giving privacy and a sense of comfort. However, a curtain’s job is not only to look pretty and shield prying eyes. Curtains also act as a barrier between the outside world and your home. They trap moisture and dust from outside, and airborne dust from inside that’s caused by sweeping and vacuuming.

‘When good curtains, turn bad’

Curtains that are left unwashed gather dust particles that can cause irritation and flare ups for allergy and asthma suffers. At Renew our curtain cleaning process is eco-friendly (we wouldn’t have it any other way) so not only do we remove these dust particles and allergens; our cleaning process will also help improve your overall indoor air quality. It’s a win, win, for anyone who not only wants fresher looking curtains, but a healthier home too.

Renew have two types of curtain cleaning services, onsite and offsite (based in Blackrock). Almost all of our domestic customers choose to have their curtains cleaned in their home. This is less hassle and a quicker process. The curtains are cleaned as they hang, using dry cleaning technology. They’re vacuumed first and any heavily soiled areas are pre-treated to endure best results. We can all be a little fussy, when it comes to how our curtains hang. Our team will take special care to make sure all curtains are tidied and gathered to perfection when finished. We know drying time can be a concern for some people before booking, but with our guaranteed drying time of 2 hours, you won’t be left hanging around….

As with most things, the better they’re looked after, the longer they last – the same goes for curtains. Renew recommend having your curtains cleaned every 2 to 4 years. This will increase their life span, which will in-turn save you money in the long run. We believe that once you’ve had your curtains cleaned with us, you won’t look back – unless of course to admire them!

Buy cheap, Buy twice

This couldn’t be more true than when it comes to choosing a carpet cleaner. Low priced carpets cleaning companies are usually cutting costs somewhere.

Top 5 Tips For Choosing a Professional Leather Upholstery Cleaner

Top 5 Tips for Choosing a Professional Leather Upholstery Cleaner

 

Renew Leather upholstery Cleaning

 

Leather upholstery never dates and like a fine wine, it gets better with age. It is often chosen over fabric for its durability, and once well maintained it can last a lifetime. Part of this maintenance is having your leather upholstery professionally cleaned. Calling in the professionals for anything in your home can be a daunting task, perhaps more so when it comes to something as classic as leather.

With super low prices and special offers being shouted from the rooftops, it’s easy to have your judgement clouded from the more important factors.

To help make the decision process a little easier for you, we have complied our Top Five Tips for Choosing a Professional Leather Upholstery Cleaner.

 

  1. Knowledge is Power:

It’s important to know what to expect from a professional cleaning company before you book. Don’t be afraid to ask questions: Are there any extra costs? How long will the job take? Will there be after care instructions?

Any reputable company will welcome your questions, and are often so passionate about what they do, you can’t shut them up!

 

  1. Creditability:

You will be letting these people into your home, so it’s important that they are a well-established and reputable company. Ask for references from previous customers, and check their website for testimonies. You want to make sure that the company you choose have fully qualified and trust worthy technicians. You don’t want your furniture being their guinea pig! Knowing that they are well known in their field, will give you peace of mind when booking.

 

  1. Value for money:

Value for money doesn’t always mean the lowest price. This should be calculated with how their cleaning and care packages will be cost effective for you in the long. Of course, we all love a bargain, however, if you shop around and the price seems too good to be true, it usually is. Companies that offer super low prices are making the costs up somewhere – whether it’s using budget cleaning solutions which could ruin your upholstery. Inadequate staff training – which could, again, ruin your upholstery. Any immediate savings that you think you’re making, could cost you twice as much in the long run.

 

  1. Eco-friendly:

In today’s world, we are all aware of the importance of caring for the environment. Professional cleaning can often be associated with the use of harsh chemicals and products. A superb cleaning company should be able to achieve their promised results by using excellent cleaning methods and eco-friendly cleaning solutions. Your home is your haven and you want to be able to relax in the knowledge that your loved ones are not being exposed to potentially harmful chemicals.

 

  1. Guarantee:

Leather upholstery is usually designed to last a lifetime. You want to make sure that having your leather upholstery professionally cleaned won’t cost you this benefit, by the job being done poorly.

Always choose a company that can guarantee their work. A reputable cleaning company will be confident enough to offer a 100% money back guarantee. Also check that they are fully insured, safe pass certified and tax compliant. If something does go wrong, having work guaranteed can save you an awful lot of money and stress in the long run.

carpet cleaning myths

Hiring professionals to do anything in your home can be daunting, no matter what service they’re providing. With carpet cleaning companies there are lots of horror stories doing the rounds. These have some people reluctant to have their carpets cleaned, fearing their beloved carpets will shrink to the size of a postage stamp or won’t dry for a month…

Below we’ve compiled some of the most common Carpet Cleaning Myths

 

Carpet cleaning myths

  • It will take a whole month for the carpet to dry?

At Renew we’re conscious that families can’t levitate around their homes waiting for carpets to dry, so we’ve a guaranteed drying time of 2 hours – or less!

  • My carpets look spotless, they don’t need professional cleaning.

The three things people look for when buying carpet are colour, texture and how good are they are at hiding dirt. Carpets are great at camouflaging dirt, and even carpet that is regularly cleaned can be harbouring all sorts of bacteria and allergens that you just can’t see. Renew carpet cleaning can remove up to ten times more dust than hoovering alone!

  • I bought a carpet cleaning machine, so I don’t need to hire professionals

Professional carpets cleaners are just that – professionals. The equipment and technique used in professional cleaning doesn’t compare to a DIY job. In fact, there is one myth that is in true.

Back to School – Its time!

It’s that time of year again, when school bags are being packed and kids are counting sleeps – well maybe that’s just the parents. However, back to school can unfortunately mean back to the doctor for many parents. Although you can’t control what allergens and germs your children are exposed to in the classroom, you can try and limit them in your home.

Regular deep cleaning is key to maintaining a hygienic home for you and your family, and carpet cleaning is one of the most beneficial. Having your carpets professionally cleaned has many benefits, but for most of our customers it’s the health benefits that has them calling us again and again.

Even the cleanest looking carpets can be a playground for dust mites, pet dander and bacteria. As children love playing on the carpet or sprawling out to watch TV, they are the ones who are mostly subjected to these hazards. Having your carpet professionally cleaned will not only leave them looking and smelling fresh, but more importantly, it will leave them safer for you and your little ones.

Back to school is also peak time for asthma flare-ups among children. Along with controlled medicine, limiting exposure to asthma triggers is important to try and keep these flare-ups at bay. At Renew we pride ourselves on removing 99.5% of all of bacteria, allergens, pet dander and dust mites, all of which can trigger illnesses such as asthma.

Routine is a huge priority this time of year, and after late nights and long days, parents are eager to get their kids back on schedule, especially when it comes to bedtime. As most of us know, a good night’s sleep is important for a child’s development, and teachers have reported that children who sleep well at night are more likely to be alert in the classroom, and have a higher concentration level. Sleep deprivation can cause children to be irritable throughout the day, affecting not only their school work, but their behaviour. As parents take care to provide a safe haven for their children, customising bedrooms to suit their tastes and ensuring they have soft, comfortable bedclothes. However, no amount of snugly bedclothes will help a child sleep, if they are being kept awake by allergens.

Parents of children with asthma often purchase anti-allergy bedclothes and pillows, these extra precautions could too just be masking the real problems that lurk underneath. Dust mites, bacteria, fungal spores and viruses, can cause sleep disruption, such as coughing, sneezing fits and skin irritation. At Renew we provide mattress cleaning that will not only remove stains such as potty accidents, but also the culprits that can cause your child to wake during the night.

There is often the misconception that this type of professional cleaning, means the use of harsh chemicals, and of course parents don’t want their children exposed to these. Our customers’ well-being is always at the forefront of our minds, and we use only the safest cleaning solutions, which are considered safe for your family by the F.D.A

As we all know parenting can be a mine field and like the children heading back to school, we adults are never done learning either. To find out more about our cleaning services or to book with us today, please click here

A Whole New Rug

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.

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.
