How To Extend the Life of Your Carpet

extend-the-life-of-your-carpet

 

There is no other flooring material available that provides the comfort and warmth that carpet does. Carpet is an excellent option for almost every room in your home, but, without proper care, it can become dirty and dingy quickly. By taking just a few preventative measures, you can keep your carpet looking clean and beautiful for decades.

1. Vacuuming

Vacuuming regularly is one of the most important ways you can care for your carpet and prevent serious damage. Dirt, dust, dander, food particles, and other allergens are constantly building up on your floor, and if they’re not removed regularly, they can easily get pushed down into the fibers of the carpet and become difficult, if not impossible, to remove. Soiled carpet can make even the most beautifully decorated room look gross.

Determining the frequency you should be vacuuming depends completely on the traffic you have moving through your house. While a house with pets and kids will require almost daily vacuuming, a person living alone or just with their spouse may only need to vacuum once or twice a week. When you do vacuum, be sure to do a thorough job, moving the vacuum slowly back and forth across the carpet, and utilizing the attachments meant for baseboards to clean the hard-to-reach places in your rooms.

2. Spot Cleaning

Spot cleaning is another important part of the carpet cleaning regimen. Stains and other spots should be treated as soon as they are identified to prevent them from causing permanent damage to the carpet. When your carpet is free from spots and stains, it holds up better and looks nicer, allowing it to last for much longer than it otherwise would.    

3. Interim Cleaning

While it’s not always possible to have a professional clean your carpets as much as you might like, you can achieve a similar clean with interim cleanings. Whether you own a carpet cleaner or rent one from the store, it is recommended that you clean your carpets yourself in between professional cleanings to decrease the amount of buildup within the carpet fibers. Interim cleaning allows you to remove the stains that spot treating can’t quite get out, making your carpet look cleaner longer.

4. Restorative Cleaning

Restorative cleaning is best performed by a professional who has access to the tools and cleaners needed to properly clean your carpet. While the above-mentioned cleanings keep your carpet looking nice, restorative cleanings are the only way you can truly extend the life of your carpet. With the help of a professional, you can rest assured knowing that your carpets are sanitized and restored to pristine condition.

industry-stats

Have you wanted to own your own business but are turned away by high start-up costs, lack of experience, or even fear of failing? If so, investing in a franchise is the perfect option for you. Not only does buying a franchise come with benefits like ongoing operational and marketing support, risk avoidance, and lower industry costs, investing in a franchise means you’ll be backed by instant brand recognition that produces successful results.

If you think buying a franchise is the right opportunity for you, consider investing in the carpet cleaning industry. As one of the leading franchise establishments in the US, the cleaning industry is expected to have stellar growth and success in 2016 and following years – making this the perfect time to start your career as a franchise owner.

Check out the following stats and trends that are making waves in the carpet cleaning industry in 2016.

4 Stats That Reflect Carpet Cleaning’s Bright Future

  • The U.S. carpet cleaning industry is massive; more than 38,384 businesses employ roughly 69,149 people.
  • The carpet cleaning industry has consistently grown at a 1.9% rate – that’s more than the leading entities in the fast food business.
  • In 2015, the industry generated $51 billion in revenue – making it one of the most substantial bounce-backs after the 2008 recession.
  • On a yearly average, homeowners lay more than 10 billion square feet of carpet, which accounts for roughly 51% of the total flooring market in the US.

4 Carpet Cleaning Trends To Watch For In 2016

  • Experts predict that the cleaning industry as a whole will grow at a 4.3% rate between 2016 and 2020 – that’s almost twice as fast as it’s been growing in years past and sets the industry up for an expected $60 billion in revenue by the end of 2016.
  • The carpet cleaning industry is one of the most accessible branches for business investment because of a low level of market share, low capital investment requirements, and high demand in both the commercial sector and private homes. Watch for the growth of independent carpet cleaning companies and reputable franchises.
  • In 2016 and the coming years, the cleaning industry – carpet cleaning in particular – will benefit from the increased amount of average expendable funds. This rising per capita will make consumers more inclined to spend money on yearly services like carpet cleaning.
  • Because the industry is historically competitive, franchises and independent companies will implement specialty cleaning services that help differentiate themselves from competitors. Zerorez, for example, uses green patented cleaning technology to give us a different and competitive edge.

empowered-water

 

If you’ve ever considered opening a carpet cleaning franchise, there is no better time than now, and there is no better option than Zerorez®. Our Empowered Water™ solution has revolutionized the carpet cleaning industry and introduced homeowners to a cleaning concept that is both chemical-free and environmentally friendly.

What is Empowered Water™?

At Zerorez®, we pride ourselves on offering our customers only the safest and most efficient cleaning solution possible, and Empowered Water™ is just that. The concept of Empowered Water™ came about when our founders were looking for a better way to clean the carpets in an apartment complex they owned, and the creation of Empowered Water™ is nothing shy of amazing. Our unique cleaning solution is as powerful as detergent, but rather than being comprised of soaps and other chemicals, it is made up solely of environmentally friendly ingredients, including enhanced water that has been electrolyzed and oxidized.

What Are the Benefits of Empowered Water™?

Empowered Water™ is a patented cleaning solution that is chemical-free, making it safe for use around kids and pets, while leaving carpets looking and feeling clean, fresh, and renewed, and eliminating foul odors and rot. The soaps found in other carpet cleaning solutions may leave carpet looking clean initially, but shortly after cleaning, the soapy residue left behind attracts dirt, leaving the carpet looking worse than it did before it was cleaned. At a time when many people prefer to use only chemical-free cleaners within the walls of their home, Zerorez® offers just that.

What Does Empowered Water™ Mean for You?

The countless benefits of Empowered Water™ make Zerorez® an excellent option for both first-time entrepreneurs, and experienced businessmen and women alike. With a name people know and a product they trust, you’ll start off with loyal, satisfied customers seeking out your services from day one. Zerorez® appeals to every customer across the board, from those who are environmentally conscious and want to make sure they only use chemical-free cleaners within their home, to those who only care about getting a deep, thorough clean that will not only last, but will also work to improve the status of their carpet by protecting it from harmful rot and mildew.

Top 7 Reasons to Switch to Green Cleaning

How did you choose which cleaning products to bring home from the store? Maybe it’s the same products you grew up using and seeing your parents use. Maybe the label had an appealing claim that you thought would make cleaning easier or more effective. But chances are, those commercial cleaning products could cause some serious damage if mixed with another, or if it fell in the hands of a child or pet.

To make your home cleaner and safer, consider these 7 reasons you should try green cleaning products.

  1. Harmful Chemicals

  2.  

    The amount of chemicals used in commercial cleaning supplies is vast, and the scary part is that they’re mostly unregulated. Unless you have an extensive knowledge of chemistry and chemical interactions, you may have a hard time knowing which ones become extremely dangerous when they interact, like when you use one cleaner to scrub the bathtub and then spray an aerosol to clean the bathroom fixtures. With many chemicals in cleaning products not EPA-approved, you run a big risk of bringing harmful substances into your home.

     

  3. Labels

  4.  

    Not only are there harmful chemicals in commercial cleaning products, but you may not even be aware of it because current government regulations do not require ingredients to be listed on any cleaning products. This is an especially important reason to use green cleaning products – so you know exactly what you’re using to clean the dishes, furniture, fixtures, etc. that your family uses.

     

  5. Less Asthma

  6.  

    The use of commercial spray cleaners has been linked with increased rates of asthma. Even infrequent usage of these types of cleaning products can trigger an asthma reaction, which is one of the most common causes of school absences among children.

     

  7. Safety

  8.  

    The National Poison Control Center lists cleaning supplies as one of the top 5 classes of products for which they receive calls. That means that if your child gets a hold of it even one time, you could have a very serious emergency on your hands. On the other hand, most green products are not toxic and aren’t nearly as dangerous.

     

  9. Cost-effective

  10.  

    When you think of green cleaning products, you may assume that means a higher price tag. But on the contrary – you probably have some already. Vinegar, baking soda, and club soda are just a few examples of regular household products that are also effective cleaners. Manufacturers are also trying to compete with each other and commercial cleaning products, meaning their prices are comparable to other products available.

     

  11. Fewer supplies needed

  12.  

    Save time and money by using green products that can do several jobs rather than switching products for each job. Vinegar, for example, can be used as a multi-purpose cleaner, a window cleaner, and even a mold remover.

     

  13. Environmentally friendly

 

Several commercial products release VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) which can be harmful to your health and the environment both in the short-term and long-term. These can especially build up in carpets and are sometimes found in aerosols and other spray cleaners. Using green cleaning products in conjunction with an environmentally-friendly carpet cleaning serving, such as Zerorez, can help reduce the VOC’s in your home, keeping the air fresh and clean.
