Holland Breweries And Brewpubs For Great Food And Drinks

Nothing beats hanging with friends and family while enjoying craft beer, which is probably one of the many reasons why local breweries have become so popular. Our real estate agents love seeing new breweries pop up all over time, as they're great for the local economy. They offer a great place to hang out while also attracting people from out of town. Plus, they give you the chance to try a new beer! It's a win-win situation.

Here's Your Compete Guide For Cleaning Carpets

Cleaning your carpets may seem like a hassle, but it's a necessary task. This guide will make the process easier.

While a nice, clean carpet is often a key component of a comfortable living space, it doesn't take long for it to get nasty. Carpet is a harbor for germs, dust, debris, dirt, and so regular cleaning is important for keeping your family healthy and your home's interior looking good.

A good carpet cleaning routine involves more than just regular vacuuming; however, the process doesn't have to be difficult. Establishing a regular cleaning cadence is key. Our real estate agents pulled together this quick guide to carpet cleaning options so you can help preserve the floors and air quality in your home:

  • Always Vacuum First
    Before doing any type of heavy-duty carpet cleaning, vacuuming first is always the right first step. Vacuuming will help remove any surface-level dust and debris as well as prevent grime from embedding itself deep into the carpet loops. You should also make it a habit to vacuum at least once a week, and always vacuum before shampooing your carpet.

  • Scrub By Hand
    If your carpet is in pretty good condition, you can likely supplement your vacuuming with a good hand scrub. Use your vacuum cleaner's brush extension and a good carpet spray or shampoo and go after the dirtiest spots on your carpet. This method is also effective for getting out stains that are limited to a specific area. However, it can be a lot of work!

  • Rent Or Purchase A Carpet Cleaning Machine
    If you need to do a heavy-duty cleaning job, then you'll need to bust out a carpet cleaning machine. You can purchase one for a few hundred dollars or rent a high-quality machine from a local store. Carpet cleaning machines expel a mixture of hot water and carpet cleaning solution, and they also have rotating brushes that will work the mixture into the fibers of the carpet as you move the machine across the surface. Remember, the quality of your cleaning product matters here, so be sure to get a reputable brand name product made specifically for carpet. Afterward, use a wet-dry vac to suction up any leftover water, as leaving the carpet too wet can lead to mold. If possible, you should aim to machine clean your carpet every couple of months.

  • Call In The Professionals
    If you want your carpet to look as good as the carpet in these Holland homes for sale, then you may consider hiring a professional. Carpet cleaning professionals can utilize a wide range of tools, including steam cleaning, shampooing, and chemical cleaning, to help your carpets look brand new. Costs are usually affordable, but they do vary based on the size of your home, the number of rooms, and the cleaning method. However, if you want to feel confident that your carpet is as clean as it can be, hiring a pro is your best choice. It's a good idea to have your carpet professionally cleaned every couple of years.

A clean carpet can make a huge difference when it comes to the comfort and air quality of your home. Regular cleanings can also extend the life of your carpet by several years. Contact us today for more home improvement tips.
