Carpet Cleaning in Greater Washington DC Area

Maryland Carpet Cleaning

Carpet cleaning is important! Carpeting is a major investment in your home or place of business, keeping up a regular cleaning schedule is necessary to keep it looking new. Just as the clothes we wear need regular washing to keep them fresh and hygienic, so carpets require periodic professional carpet cleaning. Accumulated soil and grit are major causes of reduced carpet life, and enable destructive and health harmful mites and bacteria to work unchecked. Carpet cleaning costs are minimal when you consider the replacement cost of carpets and soft furnishings, so regular cleaning makes economic sense too.

Our carpet cleaning experts use only the most powerful and effective carpet cleaning equipment manufactured by the industry leaders. A substantial investment is placed into the latest technologies for cleaning soft furnishings so we can give you the benefit of cleaner and healthier carpets.

Removing Candle Wax from Carpets

Everyone likes candles. They can create a romantic mood and spread a soothing aromatic fragrance into a room. However, they can really create a problem for your carpet if the wax drips onto it. The main problem is that the melted dripping wax will usually become meshed with the carpet fibers when it hardens. This makes removal difficult and presents some serious dangers of damage to the carpet. This might be the right time for a Professional Carpet cleaning company to be called into action.

If you do decide to call for help, be certain that you are calling a Professional. In many areas, people are advertising low priced carpet cleaning “deals” and will often send out employees that have no more experience in complex cleaning problems than you have yourself. It might cost a little bit more to engage the services of a real carpet cleaning company, but it will be well worth it when you see the results.

Actually, there is a fairly common way to remove the wax yourself. If you are careful, it is fairly safe and foolproof. You will need some good quality and highly adsorbent paper towels and a common house iron. The first step is to very carefully pick away and remove all of the wax that you can without pulling at any of the carpet fibers. This is just intended to remove the excess. Do this very carefully as pulling at the fibers on some carpets can lead to “runs” that are not unlike the runs in nylon stockings.

When you have removed as much of the excess as can safely be removed, lay the paper towel flat over the wax area. Turn the iron on to a “warm” setting. It is important to use a low temperature setting and exhibit a great deal of patience. If you try to go to fast by using a hot iron, you will most likely singe the fibers of the carpet causing a worse problem than the wax. Once the iron is warm, slowly, and carefully, iron the paper towel over the wax. The heat will melt the wax and the towel will adsorb the melted wax. If this is working properly, it will appear like grease stains on the towel. Some people suggest a real towel for more protection to the carpet. Although this will work also, you then have a problem of having wax in your towel and will most likely have to discard it. The paper towels work just fine.

If the wax was colored, you might leave a little stain in the carpet once the wax has been removed. Most good quality carpet cleaning solutions will remove the color stain. Make sure that you test any cleaning solution before using it on the carpet itself. A little testing square of your carpet material is ideal for this purpose. There is also a commercial product that is supposed to be very effective on wax. It is called Un-do Label and Candle Wax Remover. This is an adhesive remover used for dissolving adhesive on labels and stickers. It can be found in hobby shops.
