3 Tips To Start Removing Clutter

2018 is the year to clear the clutter! Make sense of the chaos that has taken over your home (or office) three small steps at a time.

Triple S Carpet Cleaning

1. The First Pile: Garbage
This can consist of broken items, empty boxes, torn clothes, etc. It’s amazing how much you can end up throwing away. If you want, you can even make a game of it with other family members — the person who throws away the most gets dinner, on the loser.

2. The Second Pile: Give Away
If you have a pile of a bunch of “this could come in handy someday” items, get rid of them. Let’s face it, they are just cluttering your home, and can be much more useful to someone else. Pass it along to a family member, friend, or shelter.

3. The Third Pile: Keep
This is going to be the hardest pile to go through. When deciding to keep or get rid of an item, ask yourself this:
  • Has it been used/worn in the last 12 months?
  • Are there any plans to use it in the next 30 days?
  • Would you buy it again?

Once you’ve finished clearing your clutter, you’ll notice a much more relaxing and stress-free feeling in your home. You can also use these tips, and more, for your office! For the freshest carpets, call the textile experts at Triple S!

Holiday Foods To Keep Away from your Carpets

Friends, family, presents, and food make for the perfect holiday celebration. And although this is a joyous get together, it can also lead to your carpets and upholstery looking less than merry and bright.

How to get rid of every holiday stain - Triple S

Don’t let holiday stains ruin your home. Start the new year “Clean, Fresh, and Bright™” with our stain removal guide.

Oil & grease: 1, 2, 3, 4
Eggnog: 2, 3, 5
Chocolate: 2, 3, 4, 5
Coffee: 2, 4, 5, 1
Fruit & juices: 2, 3, 4, 5
Tree sap: 5, 4, 3, 1
Wine: 2 4, 3
Beer: 2, 4

Step 1
Apply a small amount of dry cleaning solvent or alcohol (available at grocery, drug and hardware stores). Use small amounts to prevent any possible damage to sizing, backings, or stuffing materials. Do not use gasoline, lighter fluid or other flammables.

Step 2
Mix one teaspoonful of white neutral detergent (a mild liquid dishwashing detergent containing no strong alkalies or bleaches) with a cup of lukewarm water.

Step 3
Mix one tablespoon of household ammonia with a half cup of water.

Step 4
Mix one-third cup of white household vinegar with two-thirds cup of water.

Step 5
Mix a solution of powdered enzyme laundry detergent following label or box directions. Allow the solution to remain on the stain for the length of time recommended by the manufacturer.
NOTE: Never mix ammonia and bleach during the cleaning operation.

We hope our stain removal tips helped your holiday mess. However, some stains require special professional care. If the stain is not removed by a prescribed household method, consult a professional cleaner.

Best Ways to Clean Hardwood Floors

Installing hardwood floors can be pricey. But don’t worry, the investment is well worth it — if you keep up with dirt and spills at least. Want the secret to keeping shiny hardwood floors? Here are three of the best methods.

Hardwood Floors Cleanings | Triple S

Vacuum Weekly.

Vacuuming at least once a week can eliminate all that food and dust you leave behind. Just use the correct nozzle on your vacuum to prevent scratching your beautiful wood floors and to efficiently pick up every dirty particle.

Dust Frequently.

It’s also key to dust your hardwood floors frequently. Although vacuuming your hardwood can suck up food and dust bunnies, you still need to dust any tiny particles left behind after you vacuum.

Eliminate Spots and Spills — Immediately.

Rather than waiting it out, be sure to wipe up spots and spills immediately after an accident occurs. If you wait too long, you can risk discoloration or your floors warping. Be especially careful if you use a humidifier in the winter, as these devices can also cause warping. Keep them away from hardwood floors and wipe up any dampness after use.

How To Clean Tile and Grout Like a Pro

Ceramic tile is one of the most durable building materials ever produced. But, everything has its weaknesses — tile, meet grout. The grout used to fill the joints between individual tiles is porous, soft, and easily stained. Luckily, there are a few cleaning tips to help restore the beauty of your tile and grout.

The Right Way To Clean Tile And Grout | Textile Cleaners | Norwalk | Triple S |

Daily Cleaning

Tile

The moment a spill occurs, wipe it up with a damp cloth to keep the stains from setting. If you have tile in your bathroom, remember to use a squeegee after every shower to help keep soap scum, rust stains, and mold to a minimum.

Grout

Keep your grout stain-resistant by applying a sealer that repels water and oil-based substances. Re-apply this sealer periodically.

Weekly Cleaning

Tile

Sweep or vacuum your floors to remove dirt that can scratch the surface. Sponge or mop the tiles with an all-purpose cleaner and warm water. Wipe clean with a dry cloth. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the label of any cleaning product. Using more product than recommended can result in dull, dirty tiles.

Grout

Mold feeds on dirt, so get a grout brush to clean out all joints and corners. To prevent discoloration, clean regularly with a pH-neutral cleaner. If the grout is crumbling or powdery, there’s no quick fix. This is a sign that it’s time to regrout!


If you need to clean your tile, stone, and grout - check out some of our professional cleaning products.

Household Chore Shortcuts

Wouldn’t it be great if you could cross your arms, nod your head, and all the housework would be done? Well these few hacks are a surefire way to speed up your chores.

rug cleaning - carpet cleaning - upholstery cleaning - stamford - norwalk - stratford
  1. Dusting


Dust with a lint roller or an old sock instead of a vacuum. This technique works especially best on small or hard-to-reach surfaces. Don’t forget to work top to bottom to prevent dust settling where you have already wiped.
  1. Windows and Mirrors


Old newspapers are recyclable, disposable, and perfect for cleaning mirrors and windows. Vinegar is also an easy cleaner you can use — to prevent streaking, wait to clean on a day with overcast.
  1. Microwave


Boil a cup of water in the microwave and add a lemon wedge. The steam will help loosen dried particles inside, making it easier to clean and remove, and the lemon helps with the smell.
  1. Refrigerator


Wipe down the interior with baking soda — it scrubs and gets rid of odors without any damage. And don’t forget to remove any spoiled foods daily!
  1. Oven


When you know you aren’t using your oven one night, take a few minutes to spray the inside of the oven with a cleaner. Wipe the grime off after dinner or even the next day if you’re feeling a little lazy.
