Happy Fall!

As we head into fall, we head indoors. The more time we spend indoors, the more we need fresh air pumped through our vents. Well, if your ducts look like this: dirty-trunkline-st-louis-moJust imagine how much of that is in your air?? Gross. Maybe those sniffles aren’t because of the mold in the air or the pollen collected on your windshield. Maybe.. Maybe its because of the dust your breathing in just sitting on the sofa watching Netflix. 😷

4 Reasons to hire Professional Cleaners

4 Reasons to hire Professional Cleaners

Safer Cleaning Agents

Professional Cleaners are not necessarily concerned with the cost of the cleaner. We are not willing to buy the cheaper brand and sacrifice our safety or yours. We only buy the ones that work and that are safe for the environment.

More Powerful Equipment

Professional Cleaners use equipment that works hard to get the stains out. We use a tractor-mount engine that provides much much more horsepower than your normal brook or sweeper.

Fans

When you use a rented carpet cleaner, the carpet is left wet. Professional Cleaners use fans to dry the carpet before we are even gone.

Further Reach

When we clean your ducts, we are able to reach way down into the system without taking it completely apart. Saving you time and money.

Pet or Foster Pet Clean up – Midwest Carpet and Duct Cleaning

Pet or Foster Pet Clean Up

At Midwest Carpet and Duct Cleaning, we highly encourage people to adopt pets from shelters. Heck, most of the people who work here already have! But what happens to those pets in the mean time? Well, many are kept in cages at the shelter which is not only terrifying to them, but hard on their health. Pet or foster pet clean up is hard in a home, but even harder in shelters. This can lead to animals and people getting ill prior to the pets moving on to their future homes.

We encourage our clients and future clients to consider adopting or fostering. You might not think you have time. You might not think foster pet clean up is that easy. Or You might think it will be hard to let go when they find a furever home. But take a chance. At least you have us for the foster pet clean up!

A client of ours is a pet owner, a mother, and a foster parent. She also has a job and runs an online store. No, this is not wonder woman, but sure seems like it. Below are some pictures of her house and her last cleaning. As you can see, she had some serious areas of pet, child, and foster pet clean up that we needed to address. But no job is too big or too small for us.

So consider bringing a pet into your home permanently or even temporarily. We are here to help you keep your house clean and you happy. We just ask that you consider sharing that happiness with a dog or cat in need.

Thank you!

Dog smell in your carpet?

Dog-laying-on-carpet

Dog smell could be absorbing into your carpets.

Having pets can be hard on house cleaning in general, but especially on your carpets. You see, pets love to lay on your carpet. And wouldn’t you? Laying on the hardwood floor is not comfortable for you, and it isn’t for your pet either. Thinking in your mind right now, you probably know their favorite spot. Now, if you think of the room that smells the most like dog and gets the most dusty, it’s probably that room. Here’s why…

Your dog most likely goes outside for bathroom breaks. During that time, they roll around and get all dirty and grass covered. They shake off and come back inside when they are done. Like us humans, their hair and skin absorbs smell. Except, they have A LOT more hair than us. And all of that hair then comes in and lays on your carpet which is fabric and porous. So the smell is then transferred from them to the carpet. And the dirt they brought in is rubbed down into the floor. And within a few days, you start to just smell what your dog rolled in, and it seems as though all of the lysol in the world cannot get rid of the smell.

Dog Smell Solution?

Have those carpets cleaned regularly to prevent the build up in the carpet pad. Let’s get you on a schedule that fits your needs. More dogs equals more often. And the furrier the dog and/or the more time they spend time outside, you will probably need cleaning more often as well. However, most people this could just be seasonal or every six months.

Please do not ever buy those shakers with the pet odor reducers in them. They are horrible for your carpet. Those little flakes breed bugs. Yes, bugs. Those bugs then live in the carpet and then on your dog. And if you’re dog is like mine, those bugs then get everywhere in the house.

I do not ever recommend using a rented carpet cleaner, but if we diagnose your carpet to be more often than you can afford, we will advise you on how you can maintain the dog smell issue yourself.

Dog urine is even worse than dog smells.

Some of us have more trouble with potty training than others, but none-the-less, we have to be mindful of what happens to our carpets when our puppy or aging dog urinates on them. I have a dog now who is 14 and not doing so well medically. Holly was born with epilepsy and asthma. This poor dog was easy to potty train, but we always had dog-urine-extractionissues when she had a seizure or an asthma attack. And when a stranger walks in the room, carpet beware. She has a nervous bladder as well! As Holly has aged, her medical issues have worsened, and she has trouble with overnights in the house. My heart cannot leave her outside overnight to protect my carpet nor could I just give her away.

Regardless of why your dog is having bathroom issues, you need to have that professionally extracted. Why? When the dog potties on the rug, it gets down in the pad. The pad then breeds bacteria and creates all sorts of problems like mold and odors.

Dog urine Solution?

We recommend extraction as soon as we can get in there. We have a machine called the claw that we set on top of the stain and flush the urine out of the carpet and the pad. After we use the claw to pull the urine from the carpet and the pad, we go through and clean the carpet as we usually would to keep the fibers treated the same.

We recommend on your own to sop up the excess with a towel to prevent the urine from spreading. However, it is not advised to try treating it in any way on your own. However, you can use lysol to get rid of the dog smell until we can treat it.
