A Better Sleep without a New Mattress

by ciadmin ciadmin No Comments

On average we spend about 1/3 of our life asleep on a mattress. So how well are you sleeping? Do you get a stuffy nose or cough a lot? Does the mattress smell a bit off?

Your mattress is probably the dirtiest object you come into contact with on a regular basis. When was the last time you had your mattress cleaned?

Changing the sheets is really not enough because the sheets are porous. Stains, smells, dust and allergens can go right through a sheet like it’s not even there.

Eco Friend Carpet Care can help. We can come and give your mattress a seriously deep cleaning to get a better sleep without a new mattress. We can remove stains, smells, dust mites, dirt and other stuff that you do not want to lay on. Here’s a short list of some of the icky stuff you have in your mattress:

DUST MITES – The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology says, “Dust allergies also make it difficult to breathe and may trigger asthma symptoms, such as wheezing, coughing, tightness in the chest and shortness of breath. Dust also just makes some people itchy.” The real problem is not the mites, but the feces they leave behind after feeding on dead skin cells that you slough off every night.

SWEAT – Everyone sweats. Even asleep you will sweat. That seeps into the mattress. Sweat, by itself, has no odor. The odor comes from the microbes that digest human sweat. Sweat also adds moisture to the mattress. Dust mites and mildew need that moisture to survive. Eco Friend can come to your house and clean sweat stains and odors from your mattress.

PETS – Hair, pet dander and odor are the top three problems your fur babies can create if they sleep with you. Hair is the least of the problems. You can brush this away. Dander and odors get into the mattress where no amount of sweeping can ever remove them. Eco Friend’s environmentally friendly cleaning chemicals and industrial equipment penetrates deep into the mattress to remove dander and odor.

When you’re ready to sleep better, call Eco Friend Carpet Care. We’ll come and give you mattress a deep cleaning.

Battling the Elements: Summer Allergies

by ciadmin ciadmin No Comments

Spring may be in the past, but allergies are not. Those who are still dealing with sniffles, watery eyes and sneezing may have summer allergies in addition to the spring allergies. We at Eco Friend Carpet Care feel for you.

Just like in the spring, pollen is the number one allergen in the summer. This is mostly because grasses and weeds pollinate in the summer. Taking a close second is mold and spores, which thrive in warm moist environments.

What does this mean for you? Well, a lot actually. If there is carpet in your home, it is likely that those allergens are hiding deep down in the fibers of your carpet which is why you seem to continue to suffer throughout the year. It is our goal to help minimize your discomfort with summer allergies by keeping your carpet clean and maintaining that cleanliness.

Here are a few other tips you can try in addition to what we can do for you.

  1. Kill the fan – Fans stir up allergens. Those who cannot go without a fan should, at a minimum, move it away from a window.
  2. Change air filters on a regular basis – By regular basis we mean once a month. This is especially a good idea during the months when the pollen counts are higher.
  3. Wash or wipe pet feet – Strange maybe, but those feet have crevices that pick up pollen and other allergens. They are then tracked into your home and being dropped off right back into your carpets.
  4. Vacuum daily – Even if you have scheduled a visit from us or we have already come, vacuuming daily can help minimize allergens in the home. Keep your vacuum filters clean and replaced regularly.
  5. Medications and physician visits – This is not medical advice, so do not interpret it that way. A visit to the doctor may be in order if the allergies are overwhelming. Be sure you have taken all other steps first as a doctor visit is never pleasurable.

We at Eco Friend want you to have an enjoyable summer. We also want you to have a summer free from unnecessary suffering. Contact us and let us show you how we can help.

Extend the Life of your Carpet with These Tips

by ciadmin ciadmin No Comments

Summer is in full swing, and here in the desert, it is hot. So hot in fact, you likely have not considered your carpets.

Carpet is a notorious collector of allergens. We at Eco Friend are here to help you save your carpet and your health this summer.

Carpets are normally more worn in the summer than at any other time. Friends, family and a constant stream of kids in and out mean tampered dirt, grime and allergens. Here are a few tips to extend the life of your carpet in great shape between professional cleanings.

SHOES
Have family and friends take shoes off at the door, and ask friends to do the same. If they don’t or there is some reluctance, don’t let it bother you too much. If one will do it, likely others will follow. This will drastically reduce the amount of wear and tear on your carpet in addition to keeping it in good shape longer.

AREA RUGS AND RUNNERS
Planning a party or get together? Consider runners that will cover the major traffic patterns. This will save carpet longer and give guests a place to wipe feet if necessary. Area rugs are great for around furniture and at entrances.

VACUUM
In the desert with the dust, daily vacuuming may not be a bad idea. Small amounts of baking soda sprinkled on the carpet will also help with odors. If you are planning on company, vacuum before and after.

FURNITURE
Changing furniture locations will alter traffic patterns and keep the carpet in better shape without a trough. Moving furniture is also a good idea to clean as dust will easily settle under all furniture.

STAY OUT
Rather than stay around the house, go out and about. This is Las Vegas! There is always something to do that does not involve gaming.

PROFESSIONAL CLEANING
There is no substitution for a professional cleaning. Call us at Eco Friend Carpet for the best in carpet cleaning. Our professional team will come to your home and use our superior system to bring your carpet back to near showroom condition in no time. This will also reduce allergens and other potential health problems in the home.
