back to school

The summer is coming to a close and kids are going back to school. Summertime can be rough on carpeting, floors, and furniture. We want to be sure that your home is given a facelift after so much love and energy has been had over the summer months! In addition to getting a nice, deep cleaning by Chem-Dry, we have some tips to help keep your home cleaned and maintained as school gets back into session.


Shoe Station:

To help cut down on dirt and centralize any messes, we recommend having a “shoe station” by the door your family uses the most. Whether that means a basket, rugs, shoes bins, or lockers--this will create a space to keep the mess contained and away from your carpets and couches!


Vacuum Often:

One way to keep the dirt down is to vacuum frequently. If you have a lot of foot traffic, kids, pets, or a very active family--you may need to vacuum 2-3 times a week. Also, be sure you keep the bag or container no more than half full, the belt is in tact, and the brushes are not clogged with hair and dust. This will help your home to stay cleaner and healthier!

Spot Clean Regularly:

If you get a stain from a PB&J sandwich on the floor, mud tracked in from those little feet, or whatever else happens in life--be sure to spot clean with Chem-Dry’s Professional Strength Spot Remover! This can help you attack the stain before it becomes an issue. For stains that are too much for the Spot Remover, just give us a call!
