Rugs and Carpet Provide a Number of Great Benefits for Homes

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Jun 21, 2018 @ 12:28 PM

Adds Beauty and Style

You can choose from many thousands of rugs and carpet styles and colors. That means your ultimate choice will reflect how you want to personalize your living space. Carpet can be a neutral foundation, or it can be a focal point with vibrant colors and stronger bolder patterns and textures.

Improves Indoor Air Quality

New carpet is the lowest VOC-emitting flooring choice available. Rugs and carpet actually act as a passive air filter, trapping dust, pollen and other particles and removing them from the breathing zone. Studies have shown that people with asthma and allergy problems have seen symptoms improve with carpet.

Provides Warmth and Comfort

Carpet provides actual thermal resistance, or R-value. In colder climates or seasons, it retains warm air longer, an energy conservation benefit. Carpet also provides a comfortable place to sit, play or work and gives a room an overall warmer feeling.

Softens Slips and Falls

Rugs and carpet are ideal for cushioning our footsteps, reducing slips and falls and minimizing injuries when falls do occur. Carpet provides safety protection for the whole family, but especially for toddlers and older individuals.

Reduces Noise


Big screen TVs, speaker phones, computers and modern sound systems make our homes noisy places. Carpet helps absorb these sounds. Adding a cushion pad beneath your carpet reduces noise even further. Carpet also works as a sound barrier between floors by helping to block sound transmission to rooms below. And carpet on stairs helps mask the sound of constant foot traffic.

Simple Home Cleaning Tips

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, May 31, 2018 @ 02:13 PM

Crumbs on the kitchen counter, dust on the TV, gunk in the bathroom sink — We can't stand our houses when they are a mess. But the thought of spending an entire day cleaning it from top to bottom sends me running to the sofa for a nap. After all, in a week, it's just going to get dirty again.

SimpleCleaning
Here are three simple home cleaning steps to help curb those nagging feelings:

Set cleaning to auto or leave it to the professionals

Make friends with the latest effort-saving cleaning tools and products, such as robotic vacuum cleaners and floor washers, and self-cleaning cat boxes, which rake cat poop into cartridges that you replace every week or so. An automatic shower cleaner spiffs up your shower at the touch of a button, and self-cleaning toilet bowl cleaners scrub your toilet every time you flush. We also suggest calling in a professional to help with your cleaning needs, like your rugs, carpets, upholstery and tile & grout.

Sweat the small stuff & zap the dirt fast

Clean drips as soon as they occur, before they dry or soak into surfaces or carpet & rugs. When you spill on your range top or carpet, quickly run a damp sponge over the (hot) surface - before it stains. Dust often so it doesn't have a chance to build up and harden in corners and crevices.

Pick a focus room & clean in short bursts

Spend another 10 minutes cleaning one room. Clean a different room every day, so eventually your whole house gets attention. Look at the top, middle and bottom of the room, and pretend you're seeing it for the first time. Tackle the tasks you don't always get to, like removing cobwebs and dusting plants.

8 Tips To Tackle Spring Cleaning [Infographic]

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Feb 22, 2018 @ 02:24 PM

First of all, spring cleaning does not have to be an afterthought.  In addition and although it is hard to believe, Spring is headed this way!  Therefore, get yourself ready for warm weather by remembering what spring is all about -- with its bare pavement, blooming trees, blue skies, open windows letting the air into your home and bare feet.  Don't let a musty house spoil it.  Give all your home's trouble spots like your rugs, carpets, upholstery, tile & grout, hardwood floors and more a quick refresh with these pro tips highlighted by Rug Renovating.

Furthermore, spring cleaning can be made easier and maybe even fun! Most noteworthy, here are eight tips for giving the season the welcome it deserves:

Post-Holiday Cleaning Tips And How To Tackle Them | Carpet, Rug And Upholstery Cleaning NY NJ and CT

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Jan 18, 2018 @ 02:49 PM

Holidays can make even the most rational person wish the man in the red suit had a magic potion with our name on it. With all the stress of cooking, preparation, and gifting, the last thing you want is to tackle is the mess left. If no one thought to give you a gift card for maid service, here are a few ways to handle post-holiday cleaning:

From spilled beverages to plates in the sink, it’s best to deal with messes as you go. While it might seem exhausting to clean as you go, it’s a lot less stressful than facing a mountain of dishes and no clean forks. Spills are less likely to become set-in stains if handled immediately.

However, there are always at least a few rug or carpet stains that magically appear after the holidays! You obviously want to treat any stains as soon as possible, but sometimes you don’t always notice them right away.

Like the carpets, upholstery can take a beating during the holidays from all of the use and abuse. The earlier you can treat the stains the better, so don’t leave this one for too long!

You will save yourself a lot of energy if you break down the tasks into manageable chunks. Remove the stress of post-holiday cleaning by deciding what must be done now and what can wait. Cleaning your kitchen must be done now, while making your guest bed with freshly laundered sheets can probably wait.

And although, we do try to keep up with the basic bathroom cleaning {especially in the guest bathrooms!} over the holidays, they will definitely be in need of a good deep cleaning afterwards. Scrub the tile in your shower and bath, wipe down the mirrors and the sink, wash the towels, mop the floors, and clean the toilet.

But, seriously. Holiday gatherings are all about togetherness and enjoyment of the good times. So, the last tip is this: ask for the help of a professional! Treat yourself and your family to a clean house and a relaxed environment when they next get home. That leaves time for you to get your not-so-New-Years-resolutions set into motion.

From The Outhouse Back To The Penthouse

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Fri, Dec 15, 2017 @ 01:27 PM

This modern handmade Bamboo Silk Rug 8-6 x 11-4 came into us for cleaning. Needless to say we were completely blown away by the condition it was in.

IMG_5876.jpg

We called the owner and discussed the problems and told him we would do our best but not to expect “miracles”. The client said he completely understood and was aware of the condition and gave us the okay to proceed.

IMG_5878.jpg
Never one to back down from a challenge, we got to work on this rug and after several cleanings and grooming of the pile we were very proud of the final out come.

IMG_6001.jpgIMG_6002.jpg

That’s why when we get rugs in a similar condition we like to say that we were able to take this rug from the OUTHOUSE and bring it back to the PENTHOUSE.

Please never wait this long to have us clean your valuable rugs and carpets!!

Bombardier Global Business Jet Upholstered Furniture, Leather And Carpet Cleaning Project | December 2017

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Dec 07, 2017 @ 04:14 PM

We were hired to clean the carpeting, matts, leather and UPHOLSTERED FURNITURE in this Beautiful Bombardier Global Business Jet. It is one of the largest business jets made.

image001.jpg

The trick was to schedule a time when the jet wasn’t busy flying around the world.  The carpet is made of a blend of wool and silk and had to be hand cleaned.

image002.jpg

The leather seats were hand clean and conditioned as well as the UPHOLSTERED COUCHES.

After the cleaning was performed we came back the next day and applied a specialty stain protection formula that has been approved for the aeronautical industry by the Boeing Company.

The work RUG RENOVATING performed was embraced by the airplane managers and the next day the plane was flying off to another destination.

Preparing Your Home For The Holidays | Professional Upholstery, Carpet And Rug Cleaning NYC And Surrounding Areas

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Oct 19, 2017 @ 02:36 PM

Whether your guests are staying just for the day or will be overnight visitors, this holiday cleaning checklist will help make your home as inviting and comfortable as possible.

AdobeStock_3414263.jpegEntrance
Make sure all outdoor lighting is functioning properly and is turned on when it is dark. Another important precaution to ensure your guest’s safety.
Establish a place to collect all warm weather apparel, including boots. Add extra hangers to your coat closet or designate a room to collect these. You should also consider adding an extra doormat for those wet boots and have your rugs professionally cleaned. If you plan for this ahead of time your entrance won’t become a cluttered mess.

Living Area
This area gets a lot of traffic.  It is a good time to schedule a professional carpet and upholstery cleaning before your guests arrive. Clean the windows so that guests can clearly see your outside decorations.

Bathrooms
If the tile looks dingy, replacing it or even new grout can give a fresh look to a bathroom. Make sure the bathroom fan and window are in operating condition. Ventilation is an important part of keeping your bathroom clean and mildew-free.
Make sure you have enough guest bath and/or hand towels. Consider special towels with a holiday theme to keep with the spirit of the season.

AdobeStock_47523261.jpegKitchen
The kitchen has become an essential room for entertaining with the popularity and ease of serving food buffet style. To provide more space, try installing appliances under countertops or consider investing in a kitchen island. Check the condition of the countertops, cabinets, and appliances. Replacing the appliances can make a huge difference when you’re preparing meals for large groups.

Guest rooms
Make sure the guest beds have fresh linens. Clear some closet space or a drawer to make your guests feel more at home. No one likes to live out of a suitcase.
Provide your guests with a bedside clock and reading lamp. Not everyone goes to sleep or wakes at the same time.

6 Tips To Get Ready For Your Carpet Cleaning

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Sep 14, 2017 @ 10:07 AM

techs.pngGetting your carpet cleaned freshens up your home, helps carpet last longer and creates a healthier environment.  This video explains how you can help to get your best carpet cleaning job.

When RUG RENOVATING's technicians arrive at your home or office they will pre-spot the problem areas, move the furniture that can be moved, thoroughly clean the carpet, replace the furniture to its original location, and put foil pads under the legs of the furniture to protect the carpet.

 

 

This is our normal on-site cleaning process. It should take approximately six to twelve hours for the carpet to dry. We will put paper down in areas that you need to walk on after cleaning.

Six Helpful Tips To Make Spring Cleaning A Breeze | Professional Rug, Carpet and Furniture Cleaning Can Help Remove Allergens

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Mar 23, 2017 @ 02:41 PM

Screen Shot 2017-03-07 at 1.40.38 PM.png

Spring is almost here, which means it’s time to give your house a GOOD SCRUBBING. Not sure where to start? Here are six tips and tricks to help make spring cleaning a breeze.

  • Keep a daily task sheet. Because the seasons change regularly, your house cleaning will also change. Create and stick with a daily cleaning schedule, so you don’t get overwhelmed when it comes time to deep clean your house.
  • Maintain a clean bathroom and kitchen. These areas should be a top priority because, typically, this is where people spend most of their time. This will also allow you to focus on other areas of the house, such as ceilings and closets, that may need a more thorough cleaning job.
  • Get the kids to help. Little kids love to help. Give them a few baby wipes to wipe down shelves and watch that dust disappear.
  • Start with your windows. Clean the inside and outside of all your windows. Once the light shines into your house, you will be able to see what areas you missed during the wintertime.
  • Change your filters often. If you are running an AC system through your house, you need to change the filters in the spring and fall. This will help YOU REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF DUST PARTICLES that build up in your home.
