Spotting Tips

Parker Brothers Carpet Cleaning in Frisco and Plano, TX, recommends urgency when dealing with carpet stains and/or spills. Getting to the problem ASAP often determines whether the spot or stain can be removed. Treat your carpets like you would your favorite clothing. You wouldn’t leave a stain on your new shirt for weeks or months before laundering and expect it to come out.

Most homes already have everyday products that work well in emergencies and keep spills and stains from becoming permanent. Always remember to test an out of the way spot for colorfastness before attempting any spot or stain removal.

Parker Brothers offer these suggestions as a service to their customers. They make no guarantee as to the results and assume no liability for their use.

Our customers have had the best results with do-it-yourself spotting by using the following procedure and repeating as necessary. Use paper towels to blot and dispose of problems such as wine spills, sick kids or pets, kids or pet accidents, weather or grease tracked in from the yard/garage, or food spills. After you have blotted the majority of the spill/stain, flush the area with white vinegar.

Verify that you are using white vinegar. Never use red apple cider vinegar. Blot again. Use a laundry spotter, such as Shout or Spray ‘n Wash to treat the stain. Let this sit for 20 minutes. Put two inches of cold water in a scrub bucket. Add two cups of your white vinegar. Rinse the area with the vinegar solution and a mild scrub brush. The vinegar is a very effective sanitizer, which is helpful in the event of kids/pets being sick or having accidents.

Blot the area with an old terry cloth towel. Only use a towel that is color neutral so no transfer takes place. For more difficult stains, let the laundry spotter sit for additional time. See the following link to the Tide Website for other useful spotting tips.

Remember: Get to spills and stains as soon as possible, and always test for colorfastness. These simple steps can save you $$$ on carpet cleaning and help avoid permanent damage to your carpets and rugs.

Vacuum Cleaner Upkeep

The best way to get value out of your carpet cleaning is to vacuum regularly in between cleanings. Parker Brothers offers these tips:

  1. Check your bag or dirt receptacle on a regular basis. If it gets too full, it dramatically reduces your machines suction, thus reducing performance.
  2. Periodically inspect the vacuum belt. If it shows signs of wear or tearing, replace it. A worn belt also reduces performance. Should a worn belt tear, it can cause damage to your vacuum from being sucked into the fan impeller. Avoid repair costs by changing your belt as needed. Many units have diagrams instructing belt change right on the unit.
  3. Watch for wear on your cord. The vacuum can cause tears or cuts in the cord. Wrap these with electrical tape for safety. This prevents them from becoming worse. Cords showing extreme wear should be replaced immediately.

Parker Brothers Carpet Cleaning encourages you to vacuum regularly to prolong your time between cleanings. Likewise, regular vacuuming prolongs the life of your carpets.

It's easy to check your vacuum belt for signs of wear
by removing the plate from the bottom.

Many units have diagrams on the fan housing
instructing the proper pathway for the belt.

The start of the year is a great time to do three often overlooked chores that can make a huge difference in the air inside your home here in Frisco, Plano.  Begin by setting up your shop vac. It will be helpful with all three of these projects. If your home doesn’t have one, we highly recommend the investment. They are great for many everyday jobs, as well as for water emergencies. First, grab the step ladder and clean all the blades on your ceiling fans. Begin by shop vacuuming the large dirt and dust, then finish by wiping with a damp rag. Second, while you have the step ladder out, change the heat/ac filters. When you remove the old filter, use the shop vac to clean around the vent, as well as the vent cover. Third, pull the lower plate off your vacuum cleaner. Change the belt after giving the chamber a good shop vacuuming. Remove the bag and vacuum this area as well. Either empty or change out the bag. These simple steps will have your family starting 2022 in a healthier environment. Next chore calling a carpet cleaner? Give us a call and mention our New Year coupon!

Everyone is focused on Coronavirus/Covid-19/Wuhan virus, but hot weather is here! As summer heats up for all of us, don't forget it's warmer for the pets as well. When humans get dehydrated, they can get diarrhea. Distance runners speak of getting "runner's trots". We've been experiencing our first few weeks of summer heat and humidity. Here at Parker Brothers Carpet Cleaning we have had a high number of emergency calls for pet accidents. Pets get dehydrated just as we do. Double check your pet's water dish in hot weather. Likewise make sure pets are not getting overheated. Avoid unnecessary health problems for your pets and unnecessary charges from your carpet cleaners. Have a great summer!

We are going old school again at Parker Brothers Carpet Cleaning in Frisco, Plano! Last month we started showing up on the job with bandanas. A month into the Covid 19/Coronavirus/Wuhan Virus crisis, we are all starting to look pretty bushy. Still no barbers/beauty salons, so Brad broke out the clippers. Everybody lined up for crewcuts, just like when we were kids.
We are working a modified schedule, with heightened safety precautions and the same attention to cleanliness on each job as we have always had. Our trucks/solutions have had an anti-viral for over 20 years. We are not concerned about suppliers being out of stock on anti-virals. Our shelves are full! Please note we are contacting all customers before arriving to check for any coughs, fevers. We are all taking our temperatures to start each shift.

You oldsters get busy and show the youngsters how much fun this used to be!
