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.

Rug Cleaning Process | Rug Renovating NY NJ CT

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Mar 08, 2018 @ 04:11 PM

We know you cherish your household treasures. To keep those treasures spotless we offer a wide variety of cleaning and restoration services that will help promote good indoor air quality and extend the lifespan of your home furnishings.

Never ever allow a wall-to-wall carpet cleaning firm to clean an Oriental or area rug in your home. It may sound good, easier and cheaper but there is nothing you can do that will harm your rugs more than this.

When a cleaner attempts to clean a rug in the home with a hot water extraction machine (better known as steam cleaning) the top half of the rug in most cases becomes saturated with detergent while the bottom half remains untouched by the detergent. As quickly as the solution is sprayed onto the rug it is extracted by the machine's vacuum. This process never really gets the dirt and grit out of the bottom half of the rug's foundation.

At our state-of-the-art solar paneled facility, we generate all of the electricity we use. With our high standard of using environmentally responsible cleaning processes that have been tested and proven, you can be assured that we use safe materials for people, pets, and the environment.

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.

AdobeStock_180114416.jpeg

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.

Hand Cleaning of Large 50 Year Old Handmade Persian Rug

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Fri, Dec 08, 2017 @ 09:44 AM

We were asked by a longtime famous Rug Dealer in New York City to restore and hopefully bring back to life a 50 year old hand made Persian (Iranian) super fine wool and silk Tabriz Rug, valued in excess of $100,000.00.

IMG_5932 2.jpg

Apparently the rug belonged to a customer of his and it was involved in a flood, where dirty water affected about 50% - 60% of the rug, causing it to be discolored and stained with the dirt, debris and other particles in the water.

Adobe Spark (1)-1.jpg

The water damage also caused many of the colors in the rug to run and bleed into the other colors as well as the beige background.

Because of the extremely high value of the rug the client wanted the restoration work done in segments. First was the cleaning. The rug was thoroughly washed to remove the dirt, discoloration and smell. The trick is to perform this service while not causing more of the fugitive dyes to bleed further. We successfully did this.

We sent the rug back to the importer for his inspection and told him we could remove much of the color run by implementing our hand restoration technics and the application of proprietary chemicals.

The importer spoke with his client and agreed to have us complete the restoration. So off to work we went and through a combination of hand technics, various applications of chemicals and two more completed wet cleanings we brought the rug back to about 85% - 90% of its pre-loss condition. The rug was dried as carefully as it was washed so as to not have any more color run.

The importer was happy and the client now had their valued rug back in very good condition and ready to be used for another 50 years.

Our company believes in the value of hands-on, personalized approach when providing services to our clients. This is our secret to gaining the trust of our clients when it comes to their carpet and rug needs. We have over 500,000 customers who trust us for their fine carpet and rug care.

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.

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.
