Water is Your Friend, But Be Careful!

Posted: 02/03/2010

It doesn't matter what you do, the amount of hours you spend doing it or how it is done, when you come home your main goal is to relax and enjoy your Minneapolis home. When you have friends over you clean and get your home into its best shape so that people can admire your house and see what kind of a place you live in and it is important to everyone to feel comfortable.

Usually whenever there is any kind of a mess it can be cleaned with a simple wetting of a towel or paper towel and cleaning it. Water is the most precious resource on our planet. Peoples bodies are largely made up of water so much so much so that you can go up to eight days without food (this IS NOT recommended) but you cannot go more than two days without water, otherwise you face death.

We clean our Minneapolis homes with water, our dishes, our cars, our clothes and even dry cleaning uses a small amount of water so it is no wonder that when you have a stain or a spill or any other kind of mess on your carpet that you use water for this as well.

Anytime you use water on your flooring, and it does not matter what kind of flooring it is, you must be very careful to not use too much as this can seep in to the carpeting and down in to your padding and mold and mildew thrive in conditions such as this.

Water is always suggested for any kind of cleaning you do as when you must use chemicals it will help to dilute them and make sure that a strong and concentrated amount of possibly harmful and damaging ingredients don't affect anyone or anything in your household.

When you have a Minneapolis carpet cleaning company come to your home to clean your carpets they will use water, even if it is a so called dry cleaning method.

The difference between the water they use and how it is performed is that they have the tools and equipment that can clean with water and remove it, extract it, as well.

Sometimes there are accidents that occur like when pipes burst, or if you own your own condo or townhome the person upstairs has flooding and it enters your residence as well.

It is, after all, water but you want to make sure to take care of it before the adverse effects of water start to set in.

If you look, for example, in a sink that stays wet with moisture you will see a film or black mildew that is growing. It is the water that is aiding in this growth. It takes a very short amount of time for mold or mildew to start to appear and any of the dirt that is in your carpeting will become mud when it comes in contact with water, as you know from playing in it as a child and seeing what happens when it rains.

Speaking of rain, another form of water, this can also enter your home by way of leaks in the roof or flooding that happens outside from sewer back up.

Use water sparingly anytime you are cleaning to conserve and to make sure that there is enough to get the job done, but not too much to cause any damage. You can be sure that a reputable Minneapolis carpet cleaning company will do the job and do it right.
