Expert Homeowner Cleaning Tips

Over the years, Triple S has helped thousands of families and businesses clean their space. From carpets and rugs to tile, grout, and upholstery. Our licensed and insured cleaning experts love the opportunity to help out.


With years of experience under our belt comes an excess amount of knowledge on all things home cleaning — and we’d love to share a few tips we’ve learned along the way.

Home Cleaning Tips From Triple S

Use under-padding with your rugs.
Steven DeMarco II, CRS: “It’s important to use under-padding with your rugs because it will add comfort and extend its lifespan. Durahold Under-Padding offers the best rug protection for rugs used over hard surfaces like wood, tile, and stone.”

Store your outdoor cushions every season.
Ed Marcarelli, Upholstery Manager: “Covering or storing your cushions when they are not in use (as well as cleaning before you store them) will help prevent excess soiling and increase the life of the fabric.”

Triple S has a dry climate-controlled warehouse to clean and store your outdoor cushions, find out more here.

Use a homemade cleaner to remove skunk smell on pets.
Ron Sanders, VP: “What can you use on a dog that got sprayed by a skunk before he lays on your carpet or furniture? The formula: 1 quart 3% peroxide, ¼ cup baking soda and 1 teaspoon of liquid soap. Mix completely in a pan or bucket and apply to fur wearing rubber gloves. Massage in and let sit for 3 to 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and towel dry. May require a second application.”

Vacuum weekly — especially if you suffer from allergies.
Ed Marcarelli, Upholstery Manager: “The same dust that builds up on your wood furniture also collects on your upholstered items. Vacuuming on a regular basis will help keep them clean and extend the life of the textile.”

Look for solution-dyed acrylics for outdoor furniture.
Ed Marcarelli, Upholstery Manager: “When looking for outdoor fabrics, look for solution-dyed acrylics. You will get a color that is more stable, they are almost impossible to stain, and they won’t fade.”

Don’t use acid or alkaline cleaners on marble.
Kevin DeMarco, CRS: “Marble flooring is chosen for its beauty. However it’s a relativity soft stone, porous, and chemically sensitive. Clean up spills immediately, dust mop regularly and use area rugs and runners in traffic areas. Do not use acid or alkaline cleaners. Dull or scratched marble can be professionally polished and sealed."
